Hillary Clinton quotes 2016 in health, immigration, same-sex marriage and gun use reflects the candidate’s stand on these issues. As the US presidential elections draw nearer each day, it is important to learn about the candidates for the presidency in order to vote wisely.
In as much as Republican candidate, Donald Trump’s professional and personal life is being dug up and scrutinized, so is Clinton’s. Voters, now more than ever, are much keener in learning about both party’s presidential nominees.
Trump has suffered severe blows with regards to his past statements about women, which caused an uproar from not only feminists but celebrities both male and female as well. The candidate still holds strong to some for being himself and saying what he means.
Clinton, on the other hand, appears to be too polished for the liking of some. In fact, the Democrat has been subject to scrutiny by the site WikiLeaks. The website has released information about her under the table deals and talks with big corporations. It has even gone as far as blaming Clinton and the US system for faking elections.
In addition, Clinton is being blamed by WikiLeaks followers for the seeming disappearance of its founder Julian Assange, who is in political asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Hillary Clinton Quotes 2016
Nonetheless, Clinton has garnered a well-respectable following from politicians to celebrities. Compared to Trump, she has also proven herself a much better fit as president during the presidential debates due to her plans for the country.
Her response to pressing US issues such as health, immigration, and gun use have been deemed commendable and more beneficial especially long-term.
Trump is known to shun immigrants from the country, saying they play a big part in unemployment of Americans. Clinton, on the other hand, believes they can help the country prosper better. She is intent on passing the Immigration Reform Bill.
“If we claim we are for family, then we have to pull together and resolve the outstanding issues around our broken immigration system. The American people support comprehensive immigration reform not just because it’s the right thing to do—and it is—but because they know it strengthens families, strengthens our economy, and strengthens our country. … We can’t wait any longer for a path to full and equal citizenship.”
“If we do comprehensive immigration reform and we invest in infrastructure… we are going to have more than enough jobs for everybody. That is what we want in America, because I want everybody to have jobs with purpose and dignity.”
On Gun Control:
“I believe weapons of war have no place on our streets. We may have our disagreements on gun safety regulations, but we should all be able to agree on a few things. If the FBI is watching you for suspected terrorist links, you shouldn’t be able to just go buy a gun with no questions asked. You shouldn’t be able to exploit loopholes and evade criminal background checks by buying online or at a gun show. And yes, if you’re too dangerous to get on a plane, you are too dangerous to buy a gun in America.”
On Same-Sex Marriage:
Trump believes same-sex marriage should not be under the president’s decision making, but by the state where one resides. Clinton assures the LGBTQ community that she will fight for equal rights when voted.
“The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality represents America at its best: just, fair and moving toward equality. Now we have more work to do. I’ll fight to ensure lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans have full equality under the law, and to end discrimination in employment, housing, schools, and other aspects of our society.”
While Trump scrutinizes Obama Care, Clinton shares a new act called Affordable Care Act. Both parties believe it is a necessity for accessible and affordable healthcare.
“As your president, I want to build on the progress we’ve made. I’ll do more to bring down health care costs for families, ease burdens on small businesses, and make sure consumers have the choices they deserve. And frankly, it is finally time for us to deal with the skyrocketing out-of-pocket health costs, and particularly runaway prescription drug prices.”
