    Clinton laments how Benghazi tragedy hurt her politically

    Clinton laments how Benghazi tragedy hurt her politically | Fox News

    Hillary Clinton seemed to add Benghazi to her already-long list of culprits to blame for her upset loss to Donald Trump last November, on the heels of the five-year anniversary of the terror attack.




    In her first live interview since the election timed with the release of her new memoir “What Happened,” Clinton on Wednesday brought up the controversy over the Benghazi terror attack in response to a question about her likability.
    You know, it takes a special kind of stupid to bring this up again. There is no plus to this, except to reveal more damaging information or sink her further into being the poster child for corruption. Now she's got the families pissed off; not a good idea. Read the article and you'll see. All she accomplished during that ordeal, and now, was to demonstrate she doesn't have what it takes to be Commander-in-Chief.

    And then, the coup de gras, was that she thinks that she really didn't **** up her presidential campaign.

    Just think of how the North Korean threat might filter through her Benghazi stain.

    Sanders might not be much better, neither the other Republicans.

    I think we really are better off with VP Mike Pence and the Evangelical influence, although the economy won't do as good and crash if Democrats fail in their opposition of tax reform.

    She continues to remind us why it was so hard to vote for her. While HRC and CNN are on a blame Bernie, Bernie Bros, Benghazi and the right hissy fit. Bernie has been working on universal healthcare and promoting his bill Medicare for all.

    I would not vote for anyone who places their religion above the Constitution and is stupid enough to admit it.

    The Benghazi attack didn't hurt Clinton. She had a chance to be a hero. Clinton hurt Clinton.

    She is destroying the democratic party. She needs to go away already. She has enough baggage to fill a freight train.

    If we are going to have UHC by morphing an existing program into it then I would prefer a hybrid of Medicaid and Medicare as the basis for it. Medicare has an auto contribution via a flat payroll tax and a fixed premium for those actually enrolled in it and pays 80% after a (small) annual deductible. Medicaid if funded by general tax revenue (federal and state split) has no premium, no annual deductible and pays 100% including (medically necessary) nursing home room & board.

    My hybrid suggestion is to keep the Medicaid benefit structure (no added out of pocket costs for any care required) but to add a premium (yep a tax increase) of 5% (with an equal employer match) taken as a payroll deduction much like Medicare does now - thus no wage income then no added (UHC premium) taxation. Before you hit the roof, and scream that "the rich" should pay that added tax too, please note that "the rich" already pay far more than an extra 5% (10% with the employer match) and on far more income (and from all sources) - thus "the rich" are still paying the lion's share of the UHC tab.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    I did not vote for this, but now that we have it I can see the greater reasoning.

    It demonstrated her lack of execution, she was nothing more than a bystander sitting on her hands.
