HHS of gutting welfare reform with quiet policy change. This was a very successful program that The Clinton Administration implemented.

This was a program that reduced the number of people on welfare and put them to work. I was an extremely effective program. This program should have been maintained as it was. What excuse could the Obama administration have?

    Remember the "good old days" when churches and charities took care of welfare? Those days when the People were not overwhelmed by taxation and had money to help those they felt deserving?

    Welfare reform was a farce.
    Yes, it reduced the "Cash assistance - you have to work" cases by 90%.
    So now they don't have to file for child support, get free housing, medical, food stamps, etc.
    90% of the TANF (cash assistance) households have no work requirement, been that way since 2000 or before.
    More 'disbled' parents than ever, more grandparents getting teh Cash - no work requirement for them.
    ~ ~
    I have 400 cases on my caseload, and a whole lot of them have healthy adults, no disability, and no one works, no need to.
    Live off the income of the children, or just live off of social service benefits.

    From 1996 to year 2000, 20 million additional people on SSI.
    28 million to 48 million.

    SSI, the new cash assistance.

    Yes, I know it is a farce in some areas. It depends a lot on what state you are in. I know a girl when they were pressuring her to work part time she decided to finally marry the guy that she had all here children by. She talked him into working 2 jobs to make up for the loss of the money,

    Correction, SSI increase is from 1996 to 2010, not 2000.

    This was not a "Clinton Administration" change- This was a Gingrich led Congress change.

    Clinton vetoed it 3 times

    The President has stayed in the way of jobs being created. He has also stop Ice from doing their jobs and he has through Home Land Security tell the Border Patrol to run and hide. All he has to do is give out drilling permits and build the pipeline and ask Congress to make E-verify the law of the land. Make every business check all their employees against the government records. He has maintained the immigration of 1 million people for the last 3 and half years. We have hundreds of bridges that need to be repaired or replaced. We have many coal miners losing jobs as generating plants are being shutdown.

    Actually it was a program that was forced upon Bill Clinton by a Republican Congress and the American people. Clinton vetoed the bill the first two times it was passed by congress with the Dims calling Republicans "mean-spirited" and claiming they wanted to take the food out of babies mouths. Clinton finally signed it the third time it was passed when he realized that close to 70% of the voters favored it. When it proved to be highly successful, Clinton and Gore claimed it as one of their signal achievements -- Gore even used it when he ran for president in 2000 though he had zero to do with it, and Clinton recently lamented that he hadn't gotten enough credit for welfare reform!

    There can be no doubt that Obama is trying to destroy the US economy by overloading the welfare system. This is the Cloward-Piven strategy developed at Columbia University. Obie wants to destroy our economy and set us up for a UN bailout and a One World government.

    I am not sure about the UN bailout. I think they will just station their troops forces in strategic places.
    He is surely trying to crash the economy and get the chaos he needs to declare a state of emergency to put us under marshal law. Then for our own good the UN will take over.

    He is really getting ready for his goal of a one world government. California and L.A. are broke but yet the still funded their gun buy back program. You should have seen all the weapons people turned in. I sat with my head in my hands thinking about what fools they are. They just do not see what is going on, no clue!

    I think many will never see the truth of what is happening. If bad times come, I am not sure I would want guns in the hands of people so uninformed they would turn their guns in willingly. These may certainly be the type that would riot and turn their guns on the public.

    He doesn't have the right to do that. The government was created with three branches to safeguard against this. Each branch is supposed to balance the others so that there is not one branch that is more powerful.
