CHARLOTTE, N.C. - During his full-throated support of President Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night, former President Bill Clinton chided Republicans for accusing President Obama of gutting the transformational welfare reform measure he signed into law in 1996.
President Clinton said the Republican claim that Obama is removing the reform law's highly successful work requirements for beneficiaries is "just not true."
