Hillary Clinton may benefit from President Obama’s unusually high approval numbers, but there is one thing about running on his platform that will hardly help her: more of the same economic policies that have given us the malaise we have now. She presents herself as an agent of change and progress…while promising us a continuation of the exact liberal tax-and-spend agenda that has hurt so many working families across the country.
“People are working harder and longer just to keep their heads above water,” Clinton said on Tuesday. “And to deal with the costs, the everyday costs, the costs of basics like childcare and prescription drugs that are too high. College is getting more expensive every day. And wages are still too low and inequality is too great. Good jobs in this country are still too hard to come by.”
But…we’ve had a Democrat in the White House for the last eight years, Hillary. Why hasn’t this stuff been fixed? You claim that Obama has been a great president – you claim to support 99% of his policies – but yet you’re up there admitting that there are still all of these economic problems eating up the middle class. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
The majority of Hillary’s speech was targeted at Donald Trump’s economic proposals, and she used a variety of sources to claim that Trump would send us spiraling into a recession.
The problem is that while Hillary was out there turning her political fame into personal wealth, Trump was making billions of dollars in the real world. There’s simply no question that between these two candidates, Trump knows far more about what creates jobs, stimulates the economy, and helps American businesses succeed. Hillary knows plenty about the economy, but only from the perspective of someone who hasn’t held a real job in decades.
Hillary’s speech is sure to be parroted and championed by her cohorts in the media, but it didn’t outline the policies that will actually help this country return to its glory days. And when it’s all said and done, that’s the only thing that matters.
