The Hillary myth—47h.,b43
Hillary Clinton sounds like Paul Ryan on the economy. She says she’s for growth, and long-term growth.” She would abandon the slow-growth economics of President Ohama and return us to those wonderful days in the 1990s when husband Bill was in charge. This is a different Hillary Clinton from the one we’ve seen in the debates.
This Hillary Clinton is entirely mythical. She doesn’t exist. As the Democratic party has lurched to the left. she has lurched with it. While talking up growth, she has proposed no incentives to produce it. She relies on government spending to stir growth, Obama’s woeful policy. On tax cuts, she’s for boosting the top rate on individual income to 45 percent, the highest in three decades. Under her complicated plan. the tax rate on capital gains would jump from 23.8 percent to 39.6 percent, then to 47.4 percent with surtaxes. The Tax foundation concluded her tax hikes would cut annual growth by 1 percent and shrink incomes by at least 0.9 percent That’s a recipe for less job creation, more wage stagnation, fewer business startups, and despondent country.
She attacks NAFTA and opposes the new Pacific trade treaty she once championed as the “gold standard” of free it’s trade. Bill Clinton pushed through welfare reform that dramatically reduced poverty and welfare dependency. She would expand welfare with a new subsidy for child care and much more. And rather than defend his 1994 crime bill, she apologizes for it.
On the minimum wage, she’s flipped twice, first to $12 an hour, then saying she’d sign a bill setting the wage at $15. She answered Sanders’s call for free public college with a scheme for debt free college. She shifted his way on raising social security benefits and promises to make “the rich” pay for it. She’s taken steps toward a single-payer, government health system. which Sanders favors. To counter his desire to ban fracking, Clinton says she’ll create a maze of regulatory roadblocks to make fracking nearly impossible. Either way, the cost of energy will soar, hurting the lower class and poor disproportionately.
As president she could instantly create a lockstep five-vote liberal majority with her replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia.
And no doubt she would. There’s already talk of the Hillary Court’s elimination of restrictions on abortion, reversing the Citizens United decision liberalizing campaign finance, ending the death penalty, forcing nonmembers to pay union dues, reviving an expansive reading of the commerce clause to justify government interference in the economy, and reinterpreting the Second Amendment to outlaw an individual’s right to bear arms. None of this is farfetched with Clinton.
Her lies are so numerous and palpable—that it takes 13 minutes for” a new video to show even a fraction of them. In the past two weeks. She lied about her stated intention to shut coal mines, she lied in referring to the FBI’s criminal investigation of her private email operation as a “security review”
The FBI doesn’t do security reviews. She lied in claiming to have never sent national security secrets by email. The lies never stop. She denied telling the parents of two security guards that an anti-Muhammad video caused rioters to kill rioters them in Benghazi, Libya. Irrefutable evidence shows she If knew she was lying.
Hillary deal with the corruption associated with her since she collected on a $100,000 on a 1,000 investment in cattle futures in 1978. The Clinton Foundation, which is more a slush fund than a charity, is only the latest and most extravagant example. Foreign governments and unsavory billionaires have donated millions, Bill Clinton was hired to speak for as much as $750,000 a pop. Only on national security and foreign policy does the Hillary myth come close to the truth She is said to be a to hawk. she’s become the friend of generals and she approves of military intervention on occasion. a surge of troops in Afghanistan. She favored leaving a residual force of troops in Iraq. as Obama did initially. She claims tough sanctions against Iran where her idea. She was against the surge Iraq.
