The Other Speech

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 1996

President Clinton's conflicted and convoluted support of Congress' Welfare Reform Bill is far more complicated than the veto speech he ought to have given. While Clinton was fulfilling his campaign promise to reform the welfare system, he should have stood firm against this bill that is not welfare reform, but welfare repeal. The system is broken, but any solution that condemns American children to a life of pain and want is no solution at all.
