Hillary Clinton cites human cost of shutdown
The Politico ^ | October 5, 2013 | Katie Glueck

Hillary Clinton this weekend cited the human cost of the ongoing government shutdown and the partisan nature of today’s political scene.

On Saturday, she received an award from Yale Law School, her alma mater, where she lamented the impacts of the shutdown on Americans, especially women and children.

“If you … want to understand the human costs of political brinksmanship and gridlock in Washington, look at the children,” she said. “Because of the government shutdown, nearly nine million women and children will soon be unable to buy healthy food and baby formula through a special supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children.”

She also noted that because of the shutdown and sequestration, thousands of low-income children no longer have HeadStart as an option. Much of her Yale address focused on challenges facing kids, especially those from poor homes....

Look at which children? The 50 million aborted children in the last 50 years, the American Genocide children?

The House is working while the Senate is on strike. Empty chair indeed. I thought the shutdown was caused by a video that was insulting to a President.

Liberals should never have the right to talk about children or death in war until they stop killing the unborn.

What about the human cost of ObamaCare biatch?! A hell of a lot more people are going to be hurt by ObamaCare than by Barry and the ‘RATS’ government shutdown. Count on it.

I tried, Hil.

I tried to look at the children, but Harry Reid killed them all.

Democrats like Harry Reid kill children with cancer.

Hillary Clinton cites human cost of shutdown.

Ted Cruz cites human cost of government run amok, borrowing far more than it takes in taxes, printing $1 Trillion a year.

Me: I cite that INFINITE MONEY ENABLES INFINITE GOVERNMENT. When government advances, liberty can only retreat. L = 1/G.

It is refreshing to see that we are learning to bring the gun to the knife fight.... Thanks - Good terse statement that speaks volumes.

Another thought. The “democrats” must have evaluated the cost of their acceptance of any and all modifications requested by the House to the ACA (Obamacare) vs. the cost of forcing suffering on all the women and children. They have elected to punish the women and children by blocking the House’s requests on multiple occasions. That will show us...

They have gone on to selectively punish large quantities of people that deserved their respect (WWII veterans) by additional means costing additional tax dollars beyond the scope of any requested modifications to the CR (closure of National Parks and of all things... the OCEAN!) This is where the motivations of the Administration may becoming ‘transparent’.... finally. Their actions are louder than words. Their stated purpose is now to be as irritating as possible. Anyone who may disagree with them have been labeled “ENEMIES”.

Yes, Hillary. But you have to power to restore the government's funding, and return everyone to work by getting rid of an unworkable destructive policy that will only make things worse for children. Get rid of Obamacare!

Her 15 minutes of fame will come when she goes on trial, is convicted and put in jail for her Benghazi failures.

I only wish we could do the same for odumbo.

BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM

“Above all, if you wish to be strong, begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation.” -Bastiat

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

HILDABEAST: ...Because of the government shutdown, nearly nine million women and children will soon be unable to buy healthy food and baby formula through a special supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children...”

REPUBLICANS: OK here is a bill that funds WIC.

HARRY REID: NO ... you fund everything or we fund nothing.

MEDIA: Republicans refuse to fund WIC.

Dear Hillary,

What difference does it make?

All Harry and Barrycade have to do is vote on and sign the bills as the Teary-eyed Boehner sends them over.

Reminds me of Jesus Christ before Pilate.

Such are her words.

In a future Judgment to either condemn her and her ilk of the very things she has claimed or release her. If the Democrats exercised their volition in shutting down the government, then her words may no be used to prosecute the Democrats.

Let her be condemned by her own words.

It all boils down to volitional responsibility.

That PUMA crap failed miserably.

At best I thought it was a foolish distraction. At worst it was ill advised, Hillary would have beaten McCain by a wider margin and been just as bad as Obama.

Biden, Cuomo Jr, Martin O’Malley. I’d hardly prefer any of them.

We need to worry about our own nominee.

The mother of “one” comments. The butcher of Benghazi, the whitewater liar, the 1st enabler to serial rapist president Bill, comments on the HUMAN costs???

There are 5 separate programs under Head Start. And.. all of them are underenrolled but deemed to be “essential”. Which is a lie.

This crapola doesn’t ring true— from a professional whiner, and incompetent.
