Hillary Clinton’s Economic Approach Under Scrutiny

I would love to have the opportunity to ask Hillary Clinton how she feels about her husband’s decision to repeal of Glass-Steagall and the subsequent signing of the Futures & Commodities Act given how quickly both acts led to the Great Recession. We all know how Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Sherrod Brown feel about regulating the finance industry and what measures they want to put in place, but I want to know what Hillary Clnton feels about the role her husband had in the debacle that happened only nine years later. Her husband got played by Robert Rubin, I would ask her, how does she justify her close relationships with Wall Street knowing that Robert Rubin counseled her husband, not for the good of the American people, but for the good of Wall Street and look where we are now. I respect Elizabeth Warren’s decision not to run, I am actually happy that she isn’t because she is fufilling a crucial role in congress. On the other hand I am very excited about the prospect of a Bernie Sanders presidential campaign; he is courageous and fiery, precisely what we need to throw the republicans off their game. I am very grateful to our President for everything he has done; he fought for heathcare coverage and won, he presided over positive job gains during the longest streak in recent history, the stock market is at an all time high, he has cut the federal deficit by a lot and the list goes on; yet now we need to pay some much needed attention to the working class and I know in my heart that Hillary Clinton isn’t the one for the job, if she truly was, she would have been speaking out long before this and she has been silent on so many of the issues that concern working class people. Bernie Sanders hasn’t been silent, we can count on him to be very, very vocal and I love that.
