Since '01, Clintons collected $35M from financial businesses

I honestly want to know how Democrats, who rail against big business, can honestly vote for Hillary. She goes against every core principal that Democrats hold dear.

Democrats don't rail against big business, they rail against abuses by big business.

What are these core Democratic principals she is breaking by accepting corporate donations?

They simply don't care, Crossfire. She, supposedly, has a v-jay jay and a d after her name. They're too busy expending all their energy on republican candidates.

This is why listening to too much right-wing news could turn someone stupid - as in grossly uninformed.

Democrats against big business??? LOL. This is such a postposterous claim that you have to wonder how someone can believe it.

As a fiscally moderate, socially liberal Democrat, it's perfectly fine by me.

In fact, that Hillary supports free-trade and business, and that big business supports her, makes me more inclined to vote for her (which I will anyway).

It's amazing how the GOP is slowly turning into an anti-business, anti-capitalist, big-government party. They are morphing into "national socialists" before our very eyes.

Yeah its mindboggling how you can claim businesses donated to your campaign as some sort of payment for your support after 9/11.

So the Clinton's have raised 35 million from businesses..The difference may be HOW these funds are used and what causes the funds are used for.. I do believe these donations were to be used for betterment for causes thru the "Clinton Foundation" ..

While Millions is raised by politicians to be used solely for that politicians betterment to get into office, position of power to somehow change laws, defund programs, create other programs to benefit those donors to the politicians.

So yes I agree with bebOp above ...BBM~~

'This is the mandate, purpose of the Clinton Foundation~
