Clinton Is No Friend Of Manufacturing

- December 8, 2015

Clinton Failed To Deliver The Manufacturing Jobs She Promised As A New York Senator

Clinton Promised To Create 200,000 Jobs In Upstate New York When She Campaigned For Senator In 2000. “She's reminded of it all the time around here, so Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton couldn't have been surprised when her failed 2000 campaign promise to bring 200,000 jobs to economically desperate upstate New York became part of the latest presidential debate.” (Carolyn Thompson, “Fact Check: Clinton And Jobs Promised,” USA Today, 2/28/08)

  • The Region Clinton Sought To Help Actually Lost Nearly 26,500 Jobs During Her First Term As Senator, According To The Business Council Of New York State. “In her first term in the Senate, the region saw a net loss of 26,500 jobs, according to an analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics by the Business Council of New York State.” (Carolyn Thompson, “Fact Check: Clinton And Jobs Promised,” USA Today, 2/28/08)

Clinton Acknowledged She Failed To Uphold Her Promise, Calling It “A Little Exuberant.” “Clinton recently called the promise ‘a little exuberant.’ During Tuesday's debate with Barack Obama, the New York senator said she was figuring Al Gore would be in the White House. ‘When I made the pledge, I was counting on having a Democratic White House, a Democratic president, who shared my values about what we needed to do to make the economy work for everyone and to create shared prosperity,’ she said.” (Carolyn Thompson, “Fact Check: Clinton And Jobs Promised,” USA Today, 2/28/08)
