Senator Santorum: "Work and Human Dignity" - Chapter 15: Work and Human Dignity from the book "It Takes a Family"
Finally, there is Billy Jo Morton. When I was sworn into the Senate in 1995, I decided that since I was going to take an active role in reforming welfare I had better see how it works firsthand.
So I immediately hired five people on welfare, about 10 percent of my staff, to work in my Pennsylvania offices. Billy Jo worked for me in her first job off welfare in my Harrisburg office. She told me that until she was forced to move off the rolls she thought she was stuck with two kids at home and no chance for a better life. Billy Jo was a great employee. After a while, we provided her a flexible enough schedule that she could go to community college to pick up some college credits part-time. There were some bumps along the way, but after a few years she moved on to something better. She was offered a scholarship to finish her degree, which she did, in education. She is now working as a teacher. Read More

Bob Casey: A Campaign Profile - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 3/24/02
Casey disagreed with the Clinton administration's embrace of welfare reform and trade liberalization measures such as the North American Free Trade Agreement.
"I couldn't have voted for that," Casey said of the 1996 welfare overhaul, passed in the year he first ran for office. "You were saying, 'Let's make people more self-sufficient,' but you weren't giving them the tools to do that. ... A lot of Democrats nationally and in the state say, 'You're crazy. We should be able to move in that other direction,' but I just don't agree with them." Read More
