Report: Clinton’s jobs push as senator fell flat, helped donors

by FOXNews.com  |  published on August 8, 2016


Hillary Clinton’s jobs record as a New York senator – which her campaign has made a centerpiece of her pitch to voters – is coming under fresh scrutiny, with a new report claiming her economic initiatives fell flat for workers, while benefiting deep-pocketed donors.

The Washington Post report found that, as a senator from 2001-2009, the now-Democratic presidential nominee was unable to pass “big ticket legislation” that she introduced to benefit upstate New York, as job growth stagnated and manufacturing jobs fell by almost 25 percent.

The Post cites U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers showing upstate New York lost jobs during Clinton’s first term, with Albany losing more than 31,000 payroll jobs between October 2001 and December 2006.

Former officials told the Post that smaller-scale projects also fell flat despite positive news coverage, with jobs failing to materialize and others leaving the state ahead of her failed 2008 presidential run.

Republican rival Donald Trump seized on the report Monday, citing the “devastating” findings as he delivered an economic address in Detroit.

    Well she did displayed herself as a victim in her run for Senate. Her opponent Rick Lazio approached her podium during the debate and she acted shocked, following which the press painted him as an obvious chauvinist and unfit for office after a brilliant career as a congressman.

        I cannot believe that DISQUS is letting you advertise free on there website. Daily online jobs is nothing but a rip off company has 10 lawsuits against them and has stolen money from the public as of not doing anything for you after you send them the money. My neighbor was stupid enough to patronage this business and got ripped off big time. He has filed a law suite now against this company.
