Bernie Sanders has been consistently opposed to the Hillary Clinton-supported 1996 welfare reform legislation that he says doubled extreme poverty. In support of Sander's stance, this piece cites Luke Shaefer's and Kathryn Edin's work on how poor Americans who were hurt by the welfare reform have fared in the ensuing years.
