When Bill Clinton Put Republican Governors In Charge Of Welfare, What Could Go Wrong?

I wonder if he even thought about what might happen if Republicans were able to "adjust" welfare in their states.....

Here's how it turned out.

In 1996 68% of the families living in poverty received benefits.

By 2014 that number has been reduced to 23%, and Republicans are bragging about how many struggling families they have kicked off of "welfare".

Assholes.

Way to go Bubba.

Wouldn't have happened if you didn't sign THEIR WELFARE REFORM BILL!!!!

7. You aught to live in OK

My mom is on disability because of health issues. She usually has a choice. Take her medicine or eat. She is down to 87 lbs now but I cannot give her food or they cut her housing allowance. Does this sound good or beneficial to anyone?
