Congressman Roy Blunt thinks the federal welfare-to-work law is working well, getting people off the welfare rolls and into paying jobs. But some people who’ve made the move say the program isn’t working as well as itcould.

Blunt says the program needs to be improved, “around the edges,” as he puts it.
