Anyone who thinks they'll exempt the latter instead of the former is either blissfully ignorant or in willful denial.

A BBC report last night on Radio featured an interview with an advisor to welfare under Clinton's presidency, he stated that some, I think it was 4 million, maybe 8 Million Americans currently, and at this time, have their sole source of income from Foodstamps. This Since welfare cuts under Clinton's regimen that sought to force people to take jobs or lose their state benefits.

The Man also had resigned because of disagreements over welfare cuts during his time under that president ...

When the same ex-Clinton administration man was asked about what UK PM Cameron and IDS (Iain Duncan Smith) just did, by suggesting benefit claimaints will lose all their rights to any benefits for 3-whopping years if they refuse to take a job THREE Times (Reminiscent of 3 hits and you're out American penal modality) he replied:

"When we did it during Clinton's Presidency, it worked with ~50% of people finding jobs, because that was in a time of economic boom, but to do the same during a recession is pure idiocy".
