The waivers were approved ONLY IF the states submitted to the Feds the alternative methods the states planned to use to increase employment rolls by 20%. No one was given blanket waivers to the work requirements. I guess there are none so blind as those that will not see.
Did anyone actually read what was in this document? In that document I see "between 2007 and 2009 these numbers more than doubled," "states were still able to choose to enforce," "states either did not qualify or chose not to use it," etc.and a bunch of allowances for states via "may/if". Just like the work requirement waivers that Republican governors in 6 states requested.
