œOBAMA’S THIRD TERM WILL MEAN MORE JOB LOSSES FOR OHIO AND PENNSYLVANIA

Hillary Clinton Is Campaigning For President Obama’s Third Term, But Their Economic Policies Will Lead To More Job Losses And Increased Poverty In Ohio And Pennsylvania

Clinton Has Explicitly Campaigned On A Continuation Of President Obama’s Policies:

The Washington Post Said Clinton Was Positioning “Herself As President Obama’s Heir Apparent.” “So it looks as if Hillary Clinton is on her way to winning the Democratic presidential nomination. Despite speed bumps, her efforts to position herself as President Obama’s heir apparent seem to be paying off.” (Donald Zinman, “If Hillary Clinton Is Running For Obama’s ‘Third Term,’ She Faces These Challenges,” The Washington Post, 4/15/16)

FiveThirtyEight Headline: “For Better Or Worse, Clinton Is Likely Stuck Running For Obama’s Third Term” (FiveThirtyEight, 4/15/15)

The Daily Beast Headline: “Hillary Clinton Will Be Barack Obama’s Third Term” (The Daily Beast, 7/6/16)

The New York Times Reported That Clinton Based Her Campaign Strategy On Embracing President Obama And His Policies. “Rather than run from Mr. Obama, she intends to turn to him as one of her campaign’s most important allies and advocates — second only, perhaps, to her husband, the other president whose record will hover over her bid.” (Amy Chozick, Maggie Haberman And Jonathan Martin, “Hillary Clinton Weighs How To Recast Ties To Obama,” The New York Times, 4/11/15)

Clinton Has Praised President Obama’s Economic Policies, Saying He Deserved An “A” Grade For His Performance:

In An Interview With The Boston Globe, Clinton Gave The Obama Administration An “A” For Its Overall Performance, Adding “I Don’t Think He Gets The Credit He Deserves For Saving Our Economy.” CLINTON: “I’d give him an ‘A.’ I don’t think he gets the credit he deserves for saving our economy from falling into a great depression, for saving the auto industry which represents millions of jobs up and down the supply chain, for beginning the crackdown on Wall Street abuses with Dodd-Frank, for getting the Affordable Care Act passed, for really being as responsive as he could possibly be given the obstructionism that he faced with the Republicans in Congress.” (Hillary Clinton, Interview With The Boston Globe, 10/17/15)

As Secretary Of State, Clinton Took “A Leading Part In Drafting The Trans-Pacific Partnership.” “She’s pressed the case for U.S. business in Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other countries in China’s shadow. She’s also taken a leading part in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade pact that would give U.S. companies a leg up on their Chinese competitors.” (Elizabeth Dwoskin and Indira Laksmanan, “How Hillary Clinton Created A U.S. Business-Promotion Machine,” Bloomberg,1/10/13)

Clinton Had Said The Trans-Pacific Partnership “Sets The Gold Standard In Trade Agreements.” CLINTON: “[We] need to keep upping our game both bilaterally and with partners across the region through agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP. Australia is a critical partner. This TPP sets the gold standard in trade agreements to open free, transparent, fair trade, the kind of environment that has the rule of law and a level playing field. And when negotiated, this agreement will cover 40 percent of the world’s total trade and build in strong protections for workers and the environment.” (Hillary Clinton,Remarks at Techport Australia , 11/15/12)
