DescriptionNewt Gingrich said Wednesday there’s “no proof” of a claim made in a Mitt Romney campaign ad that President Barack Obama ended the welfare work requirement.

“We have no proof today,” the former House speaker said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.” “But I would say to you, under Obama’s ideology, it is absolutely true that he would be comfortable sending a lot of people checks for doing nothing.”

The ad, paid for by the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee, says Obama has “gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements.” Former President Bill Clinton, who signed the 1996 Welfare Reform Act mentioned in the ad, called the claim “not true.”
