Hillary Clinton starting to hit her stride
Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared at the Alabama Democratic Conference this weekend. She did not mince words in calling out those who have consistently wrecked the United States economy.
“There is a pattern of Republican Presidents getting us into economic messes and Democratic Presidents having to come in and clean them up,” Hillary Clinton said. “You know when my husband became president thanks to a lot of you in this room, I remember after that election in 92 him saying to me it’s so much worse than they told us. The debt of our country had been quadrupled in the prior 12 years. The deficits had exploded. And so he had to roll up his sleeves and work hard. And at the end of eight years we had twenty three million new jobs. Incomes were rising at the top, the middle, working folk, poor people. And we ended up with a balanced budget and a surplus. And then we got another Republican president. And boy did he leave a mess for President Obama. We were on the brink of a great depression; not just a recession. We were losing 800,000 jobs a month. Now I know these are inconvenient facts for your Republican friends and neighbors. But the truth is President Obama doesn’t get the credit he deserves for saving the American economy from falling into a great depression.”
It is a mathematical and statistical fact that the American economy does substantially better under a Democratic president than under a Republican President. It has been quantified.
It is refreshing to finally have candidates call out those who continue policies that wreck the U.S. economy as the middle-class and poor are decimated by said policies. The pilfering of the masses have gotten so bad that even a Democratic centrist feels comfortable calling out the leading guardians of an immoral crony capitalism. If the full throated attack of this evil continues along with plausible solutions, Americans will feel the thread of empowerment and reengage in the body politic. They will get back to voting because they will feel they have a reason to vote.
