@5: 16m covered. Young ppl. Preexisting conditions. Women get better coverage. Repeal those things? Embrace them!

Statement

Hillary and I mourn the passing of Lee Kuan Yew.  Prime Minister Lee transformed Singapore into one of the world¹s strongest and most sustainable economies.  He also firmly established his country as an important friend and partner of the United States.  After leaving office, he continued to offer brilliant analysis and wise advice to those who sought it.  We will always be grateful for our fascinating conversations with him over the years.  Our thoughts are with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, his entire family, and all the people of Singapore.

Verbatim: Just Wanna Have Fun

We have a huge fun deficit in America. And we need to figure out how to fill that fun deficit, certainly for our kids, but also for the rest of us.

Repeal of the ACA would let insurers write their own rules again, and wipe out coverage for 16 million Americans.

Making college more affordable is an investment in our kids and economic growth. Cuts to Pell Grants hold our kids back.

Our nation’s future – jobs & economic growth – depends on investments made today. The GOP budget fails Americans on these principles.

Budgets reflect our priorities. They should help families get ahead, educate our kids, and spark small business growth.

…2) Playing politics with trafficking victims… 3) Threatening women’s health & rights.

Congressional trifecta against women today: 1) Blocking great nominee, 1st African American woman AG, for longer than any AG in 30 years…

Mme. Secretary, respectfully, time to reactivate the Facebook account (forget about MySpace) when 140 characters are not enough.

For her long dedication to bringing an end to The Troubles, Hillary Clinton was deservedly recognized today by Irish America Magazine.  Congratulations, Mme. Secretary!

In these contentious times, I offer my favorite Irish prayer.  A Blessed and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all!

May those that love us love us,

And those that don’t love us,

May God turn their hearts.

And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,

May He turn their ankles

So we will know them

By their limping.

“Irish Americans for Hillary,” said the buttons on the tables in the ballroom of the Essex House Hotel where Irish America magazine honored Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton for her work in advancing the Irish Peace Process by inducting her into the Irish America Hall of Fame, which is based on the Dunbrody Famine Ship Experience in New Ross, County Wexford, the ancestral home of John F. Kennedy who inspired her husband Bill Clinton to enter public service.

Joining Secretary Clinton were three other outstanding inductees, the philanthropist Robert J. McCann, CEO UPS Group America, Emmett O’Connell, head of Great Western Mining, who has spent his life strengthening the bond between Ireland and America and Pat Quinn, creator of the Ice Bucket Challenge which raised millions for ALS research.

Here is an excellent recap of Hillary’s efforts for peace.

When It Comes to Irish Peace,
Hillary and History Rhyme

By Niall O’Dowd, Founding Publisher
April / May 2015

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s role in the Irish peace process is often underestimated but there were few people more important.

In retrospect it all seems so obvious. Once an American president focused on Ireland, there would be an immediate concerted effort to find a way to end Europe’s long-running war.

After decades of war the American intervention was decisive, a fact admitted years later by the British government themselves. The reality at the time was different, however. When President Bill Clinton became the first U.S. president in history to focus on peace in Ireland, the initiative was opposed on all sides.
