US Candidate Advocates End Of Welfare

Squall 13, Summer 1996, pg. 7.

THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE challenging democrat President Bill Clinton in the next presidential elections, Bob Dole, has outlined his plans “to end welfare as we know it”.

They include an absolute five year limit on welfare “with few exceptions”, with able bodied unemployed being denied welfare if they fail to find work within two years. He has also demanded that welfare beneficiaries should be subject to mandatory drugs testing. Dole described the American welfare system as “the killing compassion”.
