Clinton Misleads About Her Professional Career In Latest Pander

- November 20, 2015

Today, At A Campaign Event, Hillary Clinton Sold Her Higher Education Plan By Claiming It Was Similar To Loan Repayments She Experienced, So “That I Could Go Work For The Children’s Defense Fund Not For Some Big Law Firm That Would Pay Me More. I Wanted To Do The Work I Loved, But I Had To Pay It Back.” CLINTON: “And then we’re going to save you thousands of dollars by making it possible for you to repay it as a percentage of the income you make when you get out of school. And I know that works because Bill and I did that. We both borrowed money when we went to law school and then we paid it back as a percentage, so that I could go work for the Children’s Defense Fund not for some big law firm that would pay me more. I wanted to do the work I loved, but I had to pay it back. I want everybody to have that chance.” (Hillary Clinton, Remarks At A Campaign Event, Memphis, TN, 11/20/15)
