On August 22, 1996, there was a reform signed by the U.S. President Bill Clinton into the American system of economic aid for the poor that tried to encourage labor force participation rather than reliance on national support, the reform was known as Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA).

Clinton’s choice to support a proposition that significantly cut spending on economic aid was contentious among members of the Democratic Party, particularly so close to the 1996 election. Republicans, in comparison, hailed the signing of PRWORA. Was the 1996 welfare reform a success of centrist policymaking that will create a more sustainable variant of economical aid for poor Americans, or was it a dangerous first step toward the slow disappearance of that help? Whose vision of American society did it signify?
