As we approach another national election-season ADS urges each American to do their own careful research on each candidate from both sides of the aisle and make their decisions based on documented facts. These facts are brightly reflected in the candidate's voting history and the goals they accomplished and attempted to accomplish, for the citizens of the US during their entire lives.
"Throughout the world" Clinton is regarded as the most powerful, most respected and most-trusted US politician to ever find herself representing the United States of America. Most of this is the result of her work with the Clinton Foundation. While Secretary of State Clinton consistently pushed for peaceful international solutions to long-time political and economic tensions. The world had been waiting and there she was.
Hillary's global advocacy for women and children is untouched by any living human being and this is where she finds her high nobility. She is only comparable to Eleanor Roosevelt when it comes-to global human rights and, as highly regarded as Eleanor is - her accomplishments come nowhere close to Mrs. Clinton's.
• The Clinton Foundation, founded by her and her husband, has improved the living conditions for nearly 400 million people in over 180 countries through its Initiative program.
• The Clinton healthcare plan laid the groundwork for the Affordable Healthcare Act and, because of this, insurance companies can no longer drop you when you're diagnosed with an expensive medical condition such as cancer.
• She developed the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, which provides the much-needed state support for children whose parents cannot afford nor provide them with adequate healthcare coverage.
• Created the Adoption and Safe Families Act and the Foster Care Independence Act.
• Successfully fought to increase research funding for prostate cancer and asthma at the National Institute of Health (NIH).
• She spearheaded investigations into mental illness plaguing veterans of the Gulf War; we now have a term for it – Gulf War Syndrome.
• At the Department of Justice, she helped create the office on Violence Against Women.
• She was instrumental in securing over $21 billion in funding for the World Trade Center redevelopment.
• Took a leading role in the investigation of health consequences of first responders and drafted the first bill to compensate and offer the health services our first responders deserve (Clinton’s successor in the Senate, Kirsten Gillibrand, passed the bill).
• Was instrumental in working out a bi-partisan compromise to address civil liberty abuses for the renewal of the U.S. Patriot Act.
• Proposed a revival of the New Deal-era Home Owners’ Loan Corporation to help homeowners refinance their mortgages in the wake of the 2008 financial disaster.
• Was a major proponent of sensible diplomacy which brought about a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, and brokered human rights with Burma.
• Oversaw free trade agreements with our allies such as Panama, Colombia, and South Korea.
• Was the most traveled Secretary of State to date and became the most globally loved US Politician in
Below you will find a partial list of the bills and resolutions Hillary Clinton introduced to Congress during her time in the US Senate.
