Hillary Clinton’s Job Record

Pointofsale_jobsWhen Hillary Clinton campaigned for a New York Senate position, she made many unkept promises. Today, we will focus on one, in particular, the issue around which her whole presidential campaign seems to revolve– jobs. Clinton promised that she would work to create 200,000 jobs in Upstate New York. (The Washington Post) But, as we shall see, what she claimed was vastly different than how she acted.

“But nearly eight years after Clinton’s Senate exit, there is little evidence that her economic development programs had a substantial impact on upstate employment. Despite Clinton’s efforts, upstate job growth stagnated overall during her tenure, with manufacturing jobs plunging nearly 25 percent, according to jobs data.” (The Washington Post)

This certainly casts doubt on her new campaign promises, because one of the most prominent tenets of her campaign is the incentive to create American jobs. Jerry Markon, of The Washington Post, continued, saying:

“The former first lady was unable to pass the big-ticket legislation she introduced to benefit the upstate economy. She turned to smaller-scale projects, but some of those fell flat after initial glowing headlines, a Washington Post review shows. Many promised jobs never materialized and others migrated to other states as she turned to her first presidential run, said former officials who worked with her in New York.” (The Washington Post)

In fact, her campaign has put together an in-depth plan to create more jobs, and guess what was used as a blueprint for her expected presidency? Yes, that’s right, her time served as a New York Senator. If she has failed at creating jobs in her previous occupation, what makes us think that she will do it as president (especially if she plans on using her previous work as a blueprint)?

So, now we have seen that Clinton’s record consists of unkept promises and broken pledges (not to mention all the corruption). Clinton and Trump are definitely not the best candidates, but we are forced to pick between the lesser of two evils, and here at the Liberty and Logic blog, we have continually put forth the case that Donald J. Trump is most certainly the better candidate.
