secretary clinton and effective leadership.

if you support secretary clinton because you like wall street banks, or because you like the TPP, or the keystone XL pipeline, or you really, really like wall street banks, fine. you like this candidate.
but if you are spouting the nonsense that she is the only democratic candidate who gets things done, let’s look at her actual record, shall we? i think this is important because the clinton campaign makes it a point to say that senator sanders will be ineffective and that secretary clinton is the only one of the two of them who can DO THE WORK.
so, on sponsored bills that passed, we have clintonS.3145S.3163, and S.1241. that’s a renamed highway, a renamed post office, and the establishment of a historic site.
sanders has also sponsored three bills that were made law, H.R.4255,  S.855, andS.893. that’s two renamed post offices and the Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2013.
we could maybe also look at the number of bills that each candidate ushered through committees to become law, or the number of amendments to bills that each one passed. clinton was never chair of any committees so maybe she MIGHT have helped bills get through there if she’d had enough experience, but when she makes herself out to be the only one with experience and ability to get things passed, sanders leads there, too.
clinton: 74       sanders: 203
you can talk all you want about how ineffective sanders will be, but maybe you should check out his record.
remember: just because hillary says it doesn’t make it true.
