Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s debate performance Wednesday was full of fabrications, misinformation, and straight lies — and we’ve got the list.
Here’s a list of the five biggest whoopers to come out of Clinton’s mouth last night.
#1 — Clinton’s lie: “I don’t add a penny to the national debt.”
The Truth: Not true at all. That’s according to the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, which estimates her large increase in spending on infrastructure, more financial aid for college, and early childhood education would increase the national debt by $200 billion over 10 years.
In other words, Clinton would add 200,000,000,000,000 pennies to the United States debt.
#2 — Clinton’s lie: She didn’t call for open borders in a paid 2013 speech to a bank: “I was talking about energy.”
The Truth: This is just a straight lie. She was actually talking about more than energy… and her call for open borders is right there in the speech transcript released by WikiLeaks.
Clinton said, “my dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, sometime in the future with energy that is as green as sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.”
The remarks suggest a broad interest in open trade of energy, yes… but clearly implies she would support free, open movement of people as rival Donald Trump had suggested.
Sponsored: Strange “instant pain relief” secret caught on video
Have you seen the weird “little brown bottle” video?
In the short video, you can see how more than 535,311 people have discovered an underground sensation in pain relief — with NO mass media advertising. Some people are saying that just one or two drops of a clear substance relieved their pain instantly — and for hours or DAYS.
If you or a loved one is suffering from arthritis, shoulder, hip, or joint pain you MUST see this brief viral video. It will only take a moment, and your pain could finally be gone.
In fact, the little brown bottle is a nightmare for those highly paid “Pain Specialist” MDs. So I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to get the video banned or discredited. While it’s up there, watch it now.
#3 — Clinton’s lie: “I want to make college debt free.”
The Truth: Clinton is trying to capture Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ popularity with millennials, but she has only proposed making college tuition free for in-state students who go to a public college or university.
Yes, Clinton’s plan would bill taxpayers an estimated $500 billion over 10 years for in-state tuition at public colleges and universities for students from families earning less than $125,000 a year. But it doesn’t go as far as Sanders, whose promise for free college energized students. Under Clinton, college-goers would still need to foot the bill for housing and food, which makes up more than half of the average $18,943 sticker price at a four-year public university, according to the College Board.
#4 — Clinton’s lie: I didn’t support the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal: “It didn’t meet my test.”
The Truth: It definitely met her test when she was secretary of state. She promoted it worldwide and called it the gold standard of trade deals.
Clinton claims she no longer backs the proposed trade deal as written because it does not provide enough protections for U.S. workers on wages, jobs and the country’s national security.
Her campaign say otherwise.
Hacked emails from Clinton’s campaign, released Wednesday by WikiLeaks, showed that Jake Sullivan, her top foreign policy adviser, called her a “big champion” of the deal and worried about how to handle the issue in the face of primary rival Sanders’ opposition.
#5 — Clinton’s lie: President Barack Obama health care law “extended the solvency of the Medicare trust fund.” and if America repeals Obamacare, “our Medicare problem gets worse.”
The Truth: Wrong. Medicare’s funding problems are FAR more complicated than she implies.
Obama’s unpopular 2010 Affordable Care Act was partly financed with cuts in future payments to hospitals, insurers and other Medicare service providers. Obama promised it would extend the solvency of the Medicare trust fund to 2029.
It failed. Medicare still has significant financial problems. The trust fund is currently projected to be exhausted in 2028, and the program’s trustees have repeatedly warned Congress and the president that action is needed to sustain Medicare over the long haul.
