Clinton Seeks Support To Restore Benefits

“The president sold out children to get re-elected,” said Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif. “He’s no better than the Republicans.”

At a hearing of a House Ways and Means subcommittee, Stark told the officials that Clinton should not expect much support for his proposals to soften the impact of the new law.
