The policy was drafted by Conservatives. The policy was sponsored in both the House and Senate by Conservatives. The worst you can say about Clinton on this is that he approved the policy -- but the policy was still Conservative policy.
Saying otherwise would be like fallaciously calling welfare reform, 'Liberal policy,' because even though that was also drafted and sponsored by Conservatives in Congress, that policy was also signed into law by Clinton. That doesn't make it Liberal policy.

Still, no GOPer beats him next year according to current polling. Guess he's not as bad as you like to think he is.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
