Last night on the democrat CBS debate, Hillary’s campaign donations from Wall Street came up as a question as to whether she was “beholden” to them as a result.
“Sanders has used his answer to…. basically… impugn my integrity. Let’s be frank here. [Crosstalk]. Wait a minute, Senator. [Crowd hushes.] You know, not only do I have hundreds of thousands of donors, most of them small. And I’m very proud that, for the first time, a majority of my donors are women. 60 percent,” said Clinton.
“So, I represented New York, and I represented New York on 9/11, when we were attacked. Where were we attacked? We were attacked in Downtown Manhattan where Wall Street is. I did spend a whole lot of time and effort helping them rebuild. It was good for New York, it was good for the economy, and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who attacked our country. So it’s fine for you to say what you’re gonna say, but I looked very carefully at your proposal, reinstating Glass Steagall, is a part of what very well could help, but is nowhere enough. My proposal is tougher, more effective and more comprehensive, because I go after all of Wall Street, not just the big banks.”
