Romney To Focus on Obama Gutting Welfare Reform

The presumptive Republican nominee campaigns in Illinois today


As the battle for middle-class voters heats up, Mitt Romney will begin making the case this week that President Barack Obama is dismantling a crown jewel of the Clinton administration: bipartisan welfare reform.

Stumping in Obama's home state on Tuesday, Romney will start hitting the president for the removal of work requirements from federal welfare regulations, his campaign said.
