Obama Voiced Opposition To Clinton Welfare Plan As State Senator
A new ad from the Romney campaign hits President Obama for changes to the Clinton welfare reform law. As a state senator in Chicago, Obama often voiced opposition to the bill.
Obama in 1998: I was not a huge fan of Clinton welfare reform.
Obama in 1998: I probably would have voted against Clinton's welfare reform plan.
Obama in 1999: I did not support Clinton's welfare reform plan.
Obama reversed course in 2008: An ad touts moving people from welfare to work to learn the "dignity that comes from work."
