PS Mag: Twenty Years Ago, We Reformed Welfare.

The program’s fixed block-grant structure meant it couldn’t respond to economic downturns by increasing aid. During the downturn — which was, lest you forget, the most severe economic slowdown in recent history — many states actually aggressively cut people from the welfare rolls in the face of budgetary pressures, reporting declines in their welfare caseloads.” Yeah, the Clintons should not brag about this. My fellow Dems know about the bait-and-switch of block grants. Well, if you oppose them now, you should not believe this is a feather in the Clinton cap. Never again.
