People sometimes forget that Secretary Hillary Clinton was going to implement a new health care system in 1993. Her husband, President Bill Clinton said that the American people were getting “two for one.” That did not work out due to prejudice against strong women. Secretary Clinton was before her time, and she would be president had the Russians not interfered in the 2016 presidential election. In spite of that, she comes through for the people.
Hillary Clinton tweeted a simple, concise message. It was directed to people across the country and all of the elected officials. She said “Teachers shouldn’t be forced to choose:”
‘Teachers shouldn’t be forced to choose between their lives and their jobs.’
Unfortunately, Donald Trump treats common sense like a foreign language that he does not understand. After all, the president is trying to toss the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci., under the school bus. Who will replace the remarkable brilliant man who has served four presidents?
Trump has already turned to The Love Connection game show host from the early 1980s and conspiracy theorist Chuck Woolsey. Amazon still has them. This is one of those times when words fail…but only briefly.
In a March 15, 2016 interview with the nonprofit The Hechinger Report, Clinton talked about education. She has been an advocate for early childhood education for 45 years/ She said:
‘No family should have to pay more than 10 percent of their income on childcare.’
In her introduction, the interviewer said:
‘Hillary Clinton has been focused on the issue of early childhood education since she was in law school, 40 years ago. Were she to become president, she’d be the first in the history of the office to come in with the protection and education of young children as her signature issue.’
Clinton explained how she designed and implemented an early-education program when Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas, his home state:
‘Every child deserves the chance to fulfill their God-given potential. In law school, I was deeply inspired by Marian Wright Edelman’s work to give children the best possible start in life, and it led me to the Yale Child Study Center. After law school, I went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, where I documented the challenges facing children with disabilities. Later, I had the opportunity to apply these ideas in Arkansas when I helped launch a home visiting program called HIPPY, which teaches parents to be their kids’ first teachers.’
Then, she added:
‘I fundamentally believe that every child has something precious to offer the world, and all they need is opportunity. I have visited countries around the world that make investment in young children a priority. They know that investing in early childhood is good for families and good for economic development. The evidence is overwhelming.’
