Obamacare is broken, and the best place to fix it is in the states.

As Congress struggles with repealing and replacing Obamacare, leaders in Washington should examine how welfare was reformed in 1996. After vetoing previous legislation, President Bill Clinton signed into law the third welfare reform bill passed by Congress. It dramatically empowered states to improve our welfare system.

 At the time, many liberals objected to the work requirements for able-bodied adults, while some conservatives complained that too much money was given to the states. Today, more than two decades later, the facts show the welfare reform law is an overwhelming success.
