18. They used that change to sell the US pushed privatization of healthcare and education to other count

Claiming that the US had become so successful that we could do that.

This WTO agenda was/is called "progressive liberalisation" (progressive in this context means "irreversible" - liberalisation means disinvestment, privatization, deregulation, no matter what the cost)

But it was based on lies and was/is a lie.

And if it wasn't a lie it was a betrayal of the whole country's workers. Pick one.

2. I'm an atheist, but .....


“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

I love me some bible - you can prove anything, but it's appropriate. nothing good from the Clintons for us.

4. Some people don't see a link between giving money to the rich and giving it to the poor.

5. Bill Clinton's Republican Welfare Reform

 

From what I have heard it called.

He gave Republicans what they wanted.

Helped them beat up on the poor.

Their favorite thing to do.

6. Can't Blame Republicans Bubba

 

Not this time.

http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2016/04/08/3767776/bill-clinton-welfare-reform/

If you didn't sign the bill, the Republicans couldn't have turned away so many people.

Take the blame for once.

Leaving the fate of the poor up to Republican Governors is the same thing as putting them to death yourself practically.

You didn't understand this?

11. Who is the real Democrat?

 

Just a little history.....

Bill Clinton's welfare reform that ended welfare for millions of poor Americans (single mother'sand their children), was copied from Wisconsin's Gov Tommy Thompson (R). A four term governor who exited the 2008 Presidential race with barely 1% support in Iowa. With Tommy Thompson's reform, many poor left the State of WI, moving to Minnesota and Illinois.

12. Excellent post, Cheese Sandwich.

We still have far too many homeless people. Welfare reform should help people get housing and make sure they have enough to eat, not punish them and refuse them the small share of our great national wealth that they need.

Bill Clinton should not have signed that welfare reform bill.

17. If I knew how...

 

I could make that Bill Clinton video clip seem more realistic. If I just knew how to sync HIS WORDS to video of John Boehner or Mitch Turtle or one of those GOP bright stars, the clip would be more convincing. Hell, if it were legal, I could see the GOP recruiting Bill to run for them this time around! Of course, Bernie would TROUNCE that phony in a New York minute!
