Bill Clinton: GOP ‘Begging For America To Fail’


clinton2Former President Bill Clinton weighed in on an increasingly likely government shutdown in an interview with ABC’s ‘This Week’. Clinton criticized Republican demands, as well as their obsession with Obamacare.

“I’ve never seen a time– can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail?”

The House voted early Sunday to make major cuts and delays to the Affordable Care Act in exchange for continuing to fund the government. The bill marks the 43rd time that House Republicans have voted to defund or repeal Obamacare. The White House and Senate Democrats have already said that this kind of a demand is a non-starter.

Clinton also said President Obama was right to not take Republican demands seriously.

“If I were the president, I wouldn’t negotiate over these draconian cuts that are gonna take food off the table of low-income working people, while they leave all the agricultural subsidies in for high-income farmers and everything else,” he said. “It’s chilling to me. The entitlement spending is going down as the unemployment rate drops and the economy grows. Half of the deficit’s already disappeared. The rest of it just seems almost spiteful.”

  1. It’s not Clintons declaration or the GOP that will bring the USA to FAIL. We live a World of LIES (Sheker) and people DO NOT want to believe or understand that it is Americas time. Hashem put Obama as President (TWICE) to slowly put into motion the inevitable. America is no linger the America of yesterday. I am not a prophet, but knew that Obama will be re-elected. Another prediction: the GOP will never again have their man in the White House. Not because I have an issue with the GOP, just the opposite, it is the NEW America, who voted for Obama for a second term. They want a Party that just GIVES, GIVES and GIVES.

  2. I think we’re about to find out how much of the US China really owns. They have a lot invested here, and they won’t look favorably on Tea Party activists doing anything that will damage the economy. Some economics journalists are predicting that China will do things to damage Wall Street if the House doesn’t settle down. Money talks – and the Chinese have a great deal of money in play here.

  3. Mr. Clinton is pretty much on target on this matter. The GOP is not ready to debate the reality of the issues that can be fixed and wants to scrap the whole basement.
