INDEPENDENT WOMEN'S FORUM STATEMENT ON HILLARY CLINTON'S PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
America must ask themselves, is Hillary Clinton the right woman for the job?
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Hillary Rodham Clinton announced on social media that she will run for president in 2016, becoming the first Democratic candidate to officially declare herself in the race for the White House. Independent Women’s Forum, the leading women’s group on the right, released the following statements in response to Mrs. Clinton’s notice:
Carrie Lukas, managing director of Independent Women’s Forum said:
"It's no surprise that Hillary Clinton has entered the presidential race, and the agenda she hopes to advance won’t be a surprise either. We know from experience that she wants to grow government by increasing taxes, spending, and regulation in every aspect of American life.
“It’s the same strategy that we've experienced during President Obama's tenure. We can expect the same results: wage stagnation, anemic job creation, higher prices, ballooning debt, and a diminished sense of America as the Land of Opportunity.
“The American people simply can't afford another four years of this type of leadership."
Sabrina Schaeffer, IWF executive director, added:
“Mrs. Clinton wants Americans to see her candidacy as a triumph for women. But the real impact of a President Hillary Clinton would have nothing to do with her gender, but everything to do with the policies she advances.
“Here is the problem: recognized by some as a champion for women’s rights, Mrs. Clinton, like many other female Democrats in Washington, has repetitively supported legislation that will actually hurt women. From government-run health care and higher taxes to more government regulation between businesses and employees, Clinton’s vision of greater government involvement in nearly all aspects of life would lead to more economic stress and less opportunities for women.
“Women benefit when the state’s power is limited, economies are allowed to flourish, cultures are permitted to prosper, and individuals, their families, and communities are empowered. For that, gender is irrelevant. It just takes a leader with the right values to advance the American Dream.
“America must ask themselves, is Hillary Clinton the right woman for the job?”
Independent Women's Forum works to improve the lives of Americans by increasing the number of women who value free-markets and personal liberty.
