Hillary Clinton on the Deficit and Debt

Clinton sees a rising debt liability as a national security issue, limiting the capabilities of the US and causing it to appear weak internationally.



(0:12 – 0:37)
“I think that our rising debt levels poses a national security threat. And it poses a national security threat in two ways. It undermines our capacity to act in our own interests and it does constrain us, where constraint may be undesirable. And it also sends a message of weakness internationally.”

8 September, 2010: Clinton remarks on the national debt at the Council on Foreign Relations


“There’s just a pattern here, where the other side continues to use the same old tired policies. They don’t work and then Democrat presidents have to come in and fix what was broken. I have this old-fashioned idea that, you know, you ought to look at the evidence and if you look at the evidence at the end of Bill Clinton’s two terms, we had the longest peace-time expansion in American history, with 22 million new jobs, a balanced budget and a surplus that would have paid off our national debt had they not been so rudely interrupted by the next administration.”
