The Corner

Quick Bleg

I could swear Hillary had some sort of gaffe — defined as accidentally telling the truth — in which she told an audience that she didn’t trust the people to behave responsibly or to spend their money the right way or something like that. I remember we talked about it in the Corner at the time (about a year ago?). I remember thinking it was similar to Bill’s statement as president that he couldn’t cut taxes because people would spend the money the wrong way. Does this ring a bell for anybody?

Update: Reader Neal was the first with an answer.

“Many of you are well enough off that … the tax cuts may have helped you,” Clinton said, according to the Associated Press. “We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you.

“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
