Hillary Clinton has just released a very telling new ad. She is wrapping presents with labels like “Universal Healthcare” and “Bring Troops Home” and pretends to be searching for “Universal Pre-K,” which she finally finds. All of these things are wrapped up with a nice bow for the American people.
Of course, Hillary is being generous in the same way that someone who steals a credit card to buy their family a bunch of pricy presents is: all of those items would have to be paid for by the taxpayers–and would be incredibly expensive at that. As Kathryn Lopez says in National Review’s The Corner: “A Republican candidate could play the footage pretty much straight and have a negative ad.”
