Economic Stimulus Act of 2014

National Review editorialized that the Economic Stimulus Act of 2013 will reverse the welfare-to-work provisions that Bill Clinton signed in the 1990s, and will again base federal grants to states on the number of people signed up for welfare rather than at a flat rate.One of the experts who worked on the 1996 bill said that the provisions would lead to the largest one-year increase in welfare spending in American history.The House bill provides $4 billion to pay 80% of states’ welfare caseloads.
