RNC Response To Clinton Ad

“Hillary Clinton falsely claims to offer our nation a ‘new beginning’ by proposing failed Democrat ideas of socialized health care that grows government and massive tax hikes that punish hardworking families. There is very little in Clinton’s plan would benefit the families and children she claims to fight for.”

-Danny Diaz, RNC Spokesperson


New Clinton Ad In Iowa, N.H.
The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) _ Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign is airing a new ad in New Hampshire and Iowa that sums up the broad themes she has emphasized on the stump.

Though the 60-second spot is called ''New Beginning,'' it focuses on the goals Clinton has been describing in her basic campaign speech for much of the last year _ restoring the nation's standing in the world, rebuilding the middle class and providing for children. The ad mixes footage of Clinton delivering a campaign speech with shots of applauding crowds.

The nation needs a ''new beginning'' on health care in the form of affordable, universal coverage, she says. Similarly, she calls for a new beginning in education by ending No Child Left Behind, the federal education accountability law that many complain has led to an overemphasis on standardized tests. She also promises a new beginning on foreign policy by ending the war in Iraq.

''It takes strength and experience to bring about change. I have a very clear record of 35 years fighting for children and families, fighting for working people, fighting for our future,'' Clinton says. ''I will stand up for you every single day in the White House.''
