    Yes, after vetoing the Welfare bill twice before, he finally saw he would not be able to sustain it a third time, so he caved in.

    It's called working with the other party but that's something the Republicans haven't done in a long, long time. It's the only way our Democracy can work.

    The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) is a United States federal law passed by the 104th United States Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The bill implemented major changes to U.S. social welfare policy, replacing the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program with the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.

    The law was a cornerstone of the Republican Party's "Contract with America," and also fulfilled Clinton's campaign promise to "end welfare as we know it." AFDC had come under increasing criticism in the 1980s, especially from conservatives who argued that welfare recipients were "trapped in a cycle of poverty." After the 1994 elections, the Republican-controlled Congress passed two major bills designed to reform welfare, but they were vetoed by Clinton. After negotiations between Clinton and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Congress passed PRWORA and Clinton signed the bill into law on August 22, 1996.

    Are you even aware that the subject is the cause of the downfall of our economy due to the housing market and those responsible?

    Vetoing a bill two times in a row and seeing you couldn't get away with it so sign it on the third attempt, is what you call "working with the other party"? LOL!

    The Republicans crushed the Democrats in the 1994 mid-term elections running on The Contract with America. Clinton knew the people wanted welfare reform, yet he vetoed the bill twice.

    It was a campaign promise he fulfilled. I'm still waiting for Trump to do that.

    At the beginning of Obama's first term he said the Republicans "can come along but they will have to ride in the back of the bus."

    So the onus is on Dems not repubs

    Sorry, but they were no "shovel ready" jobs as your Dear Leader advertised - he even admitted that. Oh yes, there were some jobs created, but they were the most expensive jobs ever created using Federal dollars. The fact is, we got little from the "Recovery and Investment Act", only Federal dollars being used in bailing out companies (like GM) that were not worth saving (as GM's defection from the American worker now shows).

    Clearly the subject I addressed was the cause of the recession. Try to keep up FTW, eh.

    Trump has fulfilled nearly 80% of his campaign promises inside of three years. Evidently, all you listen to are Leftist talking points and not much else.

    As for working with the other side, Trump has endeavored to work with the other side, but they refuse to work with him. They obstruct everything he attempts to find bi-partisan support. They refuse to enact any kind of immigration reform and refuse to stop the inflow of illegal aliens into our country. They refuse to help the president on anything else. Their only interest is in unseating the president, not working with Him or the GoP on any legislative matters. The Democrats in Congress have become petulant children.

    Yes, Business Losses. Not cash money. And many times the losses were deliberately induced for tax reasons.

    It’s just what the doctor ordered. Moving from a republic to an empire with Trump to play the part of Julius Caesar.

    What empire? There is no empire. Trump is simply lowing unemployment across the board, lowering income tax, bring back jobs, telling our allies in NATO to carry their own weight, trying to stop illegal aliens from flooding our borders...

    I don't see what is imperialistic about that. But in the absence of a substantive, adult reply, I can see why you would feel the need to engage in meaningless, baseless quips that have no bearing on reality.

    Factual statement by Obama:
    THE PRESIDENT: Philadelphia, they can't have the keys back. They don't know how to drive. (Applause.) They don't know how to drive. They can ride with us if they want, but they got to get in the back seat. (Applause.) Because we want to go forward. We don't want the special interests riding shotgun. We want working families, middle-class families, up front. They're our priority. [President Obama Remarks, 10/10/10 via WhiteHouse.gov; emphasis added]

    So you claim the American auto companies aren't worth saving. What other American companies are worthless. Personally I think coal companies and most steel companies fall in this category. Those, of course are the ones Trump is trying to support.
