Summary
"Work over Welfare presents the inside story of the legislation that ended "welfare as we know it" in America. As a key staffer on the House Ways an Means Committee, Ron Haskins was one of the principal architects of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996. Here, he vividly recounts the political battles and policy debates that produced the most dramatic overhaul of welfare since its creation as part of the New Deal."--Jacket
