Hillary Clinton, In Paid Speeches To Wall Street, Promoted Commission That Pushed Social Security Cuts

During the Democratic presidential primary, Hillary Clinton was criticized for refusing to release the transcripts of paid speeches she gave after she ended her term as Secretary of State. Now, just a month before the election, a transparency group has published what it says are excerpts of those speeches and the remarks show Clinton appearing to reassure Wall Street with rhetoric that differed from the kind she voiced in more public forums.

The email was released by the website Wikileaks, as part of what it says are more than 2,600 emails hacked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podetsa. The Clinton campaign has neither confirmed nor denied the authenticty of the emails. In the email published by Wikileaks, Clinton tells a real estate industry trade association that she believes that as a public official, “You need both a public and a private position” on major issues.

Clinton promised on the campaign trail that she would oppose the 12-nation Trans Pacific Partnership, and that she “will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages.” But in the email released by Wikileaks, she is shown telling a Brazilian bank that, “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.” She also is quoted saying: “We have to resist protectionism, other kinds of barriers to market access and to trade and I would like to see this get much more attention and be not just a policy for a year under president X or president Y but a consistent one.”

Clinton on the campaign trail declared, “I won’t cut Social Security.” Yet in the email’s excerpts of her Morgan Stanley speech, she lauded a presidential commission that proposed changes that would slash Social Security benefits, according to experts. The email shows Clinton specifically telling Morgan Stanley that the Simpson-Bowles commission “put forth the right framework” for dealing with fiscal challenges. She also said “the Simpson-Bowles framework and the big elements of it were right.”

As the nonpartisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities reported in 2011, that commission proposed a plan to “cut benefits for the vast majority of Social Security recipients, weaken the link between a recipient’s benefits and past earnings (which could undermine public support for the program), and, despite the claims of the co-chairs, fail to protect most low-income workers from benefit cuts.”

Clinton was criticized during the Democratic primary for her ties to Wall Street and she depicted herself as someone who had been tough on the financial industry. But in other speech excerpts from the email, Clinton appeared to laud the financial industry, and tout her work helping enrich it.

The email shows that in a speech to a securities law firm, she said “I represented and worked with so many talented principled people who made their living in finance.” The email shows her also saying that while she supports some efforts to raise taxes on the financial executives, “I represented them and did all I could to make sure they continued to prosper.” (In a previous interview, Clinton said of the financial industry bailout: “I think the banks of New York and our other financial institutions are probably the biggest winners in this, which is one of the reasons why in the end, despite my serious questions about it, I supported it.”)

Another excerpt in the email shows Clinton suggesting that Wall Street executives are best positioned to write government rules that regulate Wall Street. “There's nothing magic about regulations, too much is bad, too little is bad,” she told a Goldman Sachs symposium. “How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works? And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry.”

I'm thinking about buys a Onkyo receiver:

 

Current AmpsOnkyo leverages 70 years experience engineering amplifiers and high–grade audio components with the TX–RZ800. Using a custom toroidal transformer and capacitors, the high end AV reciever helps reproduction of ultra low frequencies down to 5 Hz taking bass levels from something your hear, to that impactful feeling in your chest. Our high–current amplification system also enables enhanced control of the speakers for accurate and dynamic sound. This delivers massive power at 185 W/Ch (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9% THD, 1 Channel Driven) 135 W/Ch (8 Ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 Channels Driven).Realistic AudioThe TX–RZ utilizes parallel "push–pull" amplification coupled with Three–stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry to provide efficient instantaneous power while retaining a natural sound ouput. The AV receiver "pushes" and "pulls" current with paired transistors to amplify the positive half of the waveform simultaneously as the negative half is being amplified. Where it can be negatively impacted by occasional distortion, the efficiency advantage results in a more natural sound. Three–Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry incorporates a low negative feedback design that gives the amplifier power, high instantaneous current, and efficiency that is simply unrivalled in its class.Smooth Analog SignalVector Linear Shaping Circuitry reassembles the audio signal eliminating pulse noise generated during the D/A process, leaving smooth high fidelity analog audio. This Onkyo developed technology uses the signal's data converted into sampling points and joined along the analog vectors to produce a virtually noiseless, analog signal that lifts subtle nuances from music and cinema sources. You hear more detail, without harsh digital distortion.THX®–Certified Amp QualityHeading to the Movies and seeing the THX logo on the screen, has always meant that the cinematic marvel you are about to witness has paid great detail to the audio soundtrack. It meant you were in for an experience. Onkyo believes that same audio experience should be felt within your own home, with guaranteed same high volume and low distortion you would experience and the cineplex. The TX–RZ800 has been put through the rigorous series of performance tests required to bare the badge of THX® Select2™ Plus with a recommended viewing distance of 10–12 feet. DTS:X CompatibleObject–based surround technology leaps into the next generation, with DTS:X which includes height channels to deliver a fully–immersive broadened listening experience. DTS:X offers listeners the ultimate ability to control the level of immersion and interactivity with their media. You can raise the volume alone within a surround mix, and unlike direct channel based audio, personalize your audio experience. DTS:X also allows you to customize to your room configuration as well as control dialog and dynamic range. Supports Dolby Atmos® Up to 5.1.2 ChannelsWith Dolby Atmos, the receiver is able to direct sound from all directions, including overhead. By combininga channel–based audio bed with object–oriented sound to place and move specific effects around the room, creating a breathtakingly realistic and captivating sonic atmosphere. Sound designers and artists are now free to mix in three–dimensional space, steering effects through surround channels and adding a seamless overhead dimension with discrete height channels. Additionally, a new Dolby surround up–mixer allows for your current channel–based content (that has not been mixed for Dolby Atmos) to be expanded to fill the flexible speaker layouts of a Dolby Atmos system.Ready for UltraHDWith support for the latest HDMI and HDCP 2.2 specifications, you are ready for the latest formats and technologies to be implemented in Hollywood content. The new version of HDMI expands the bandwidth capability, up to 18Gbps, and support for 4K@50/60 (2160p), which is 4 times the clarity of 1080p/60 video resolution, and 4:4:4 color space. This Onkyo high end AVR enables transmission of High Dynamic Range (HDR) formats, and provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image.Multi–zone Audio and VideoThe TX–RZ800 features Powered Zone 2 and Zone 2/3 Pre/Line–Outs for distributed audio playback, including Zone 2 digital audio and network audio output. Control the audio content in the zones via remote app; play the same song in all zones using Whole House Mode; or enjoy a different song in each room.Further, there is Zone 2 HDMI output for HD video in a second Room, with Zone 2 HDMI supported on inputs 1, 2, 3, 4 5. Use the HDMI Sub Out to connect a second display in another room. This allows you to route 1080p content from the media players connected to your receiver and play it back on another TV with easy smartphone control. Convenient and Easy Control OptionsAn RS232 input, an IR input, and a 12 Volt Trigger out give the TX–RZ800 virtually unlimited control capabilities. Full control is possible from a wide variety of home automation systems, offering you the ability to turn on/off televisions, activate projectors and screens, or even send audio into another zone. Bluetooth / Wi–Fi® with Pandora, Spotify, and AirPlayThe TX–RZ800 has AirPlay, Wi–Fi and Bluetooth technologies built in. The free Onkyo Remote app puts a range of streaming options at your fingertips, from universal hi–res audio via network–attached devices to internet streaming services to music on your smartphone and tablet. Or pair up and enjoy whatever's playing on your Bluetooth–compatible device for huge cinematic sound. It also comes loaded with Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Slacker and TuneIn. You can select a station and search for music available on these services via the Onkyo Remote app on your phone.
