Welcome to Clinton III

In August 1996, President Clinton --seeking a second term -- announced his intention to sign a GOP welfare bill abolishing Aid to Families with Dependent Children, cutting billions annually from food stamps and other social services. In January 2009, President-Elect Obama announced his intention to push for cuts in Social Security and Medicare. Both these darlings of Wall Street, while robbing the working poor and disabled, served up billions to the already rich and criminally insane; welcome to Clinton III.
