Romney's lying ad
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Mitt Romney approved a campaign ad that states that President Barack Obama "quietly announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements." Romney is referring to a limited waiver of welfare rules requested by five states (including Utah).

The waiver was granted only with condition that the results provide equivalent enforcement of the work requirement. Romney certainly knows that the ad is a lie.

After contemplating the ninth commandment about not bearing false witness (Exodus 20:16), Romney supporters might want to reconsider their support.
