Candidate Hillary Opens Fire Against GOP

By    |   Thursday, 23 Apr 2015 09:49 PM

Game on.

Hillary Clinton has taken direct aim at Republican policies for the first time since announcing her presidential bid, criticizing the GOP on immigration, healthcare and the delayed nomination of Loretta Lynch as attorney general.

"There are those who offer themselves as leaders who would deport mothers working to give their children a better life rather than risk ire of talk radio," Clinton said at the annual Women in the World conference in Manhattan on Thursday.

"There are those who offer themselves as leaders who even play politics with the nomination of our nation’s chief law enforcement officer and victims of human rights trafficking," she added, referring to legislation that held up the nomination vote for Loretta Lynch.

Lynch won approval from the Senate Thursday; she'll be the first black woman to hold the post.

"It isn't leadership, it's not going to create a single job, raise anyone's wages or
strengthen our families," Clinton said.

Clinton has appeared every year at the Women In The World Summit in New York since it began in 2010, but this is her first appearance as a presidential candidate. "I wanted to be here regardless of what else I was doing,'' she said, USA Today reports.

Time reports Clinton, who announced her candidacy April 12, hadn't publicly attacked Republicans in her first weeks on the road, focusing instead on a low-key rollout in Iowa and New Hampshire.

The speech also highlighted her left-leaning campaign pitch, the Washington Post reports.

"America moves forward when all women are guaranteed the right to make their own health-care choices, not when those choices are taken away by an employer like Hobby Lobby," Clinton told the women's conference.

The reference was to the Supreme Court ruling last year allows privately held companies with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare's contraception coverage mandate.

"When we deny women access to a retirement that is secure, when we continue, as we do, to discriminate against women in the Social Security system, we are leaving too many women on their own," she said, the Post reports.
