Abstract: This paper deals with the complications inherent in social citizenship in the United States. It takes a close look at the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) reform and how political entrepreneurs were able to end entitlements that were created over six decades ago. This project traces welfare policy from its inception in the post-Civil War period and shows the development of bifurcated conceptions of social citizenship. Previous explanations for the split of citizenship ideas over time fail to give enough weight to the policy process and instead focus on broad structural variables, single elements (public opinion) in the policy process, or fail to recognize the complexity inherent in studying policies that have embedded meanings. This paper proposes a different look at welfare policy. One that seeks to show policy development as a series of critical junctures, where over time policy perceptions are institutionalized and reinforced by those structures. In the 1996 policy this bias is mobilized to legitimate the actions of political entrepreneurs.
