Clinton Hits Bush Over ‘Free Stuff’ Remark
Hillary Clinton couldn’t resist taking a shot at Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush’s comments about Democrats handing out free stuff on Monday.
“That kind of rhetoric is deeply insulting,” Clinton responded during a Facebook Q-and-A.
“I think people are seeing this for what it is: Republicans lecturing people of color instead of offering real solutions to help people get ahead, including facing up to hard truths about race and justice in America,” Clinton wrote.
“Republicans have no problem promising tax breaks and sweetheart deals to their corporate friends, but when Democrats fight to make sure all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care, early childhood education, and job training, that’s giving away ‘free stuff’?! Talk about backwards,” Clinton wrote Monday.
“And that’s not all. I’m calling for an end to the era of mass incarceration, criminal justice reforms, and protecting voting rights, but Republicans across the country are making it harder to vote. That’s wrong and it’s got to change,” she added.
