7:01 pm
in elections. more republicans -- no republican has won the presidency without it. audio]hy it shows richard nixon over kennedy in 1960. -- it's regional diversity. it's easy to see how they balance each other. [indiscernible] we see regional tendencies. there are more clear when you look at the percentages by region. will ohio be a bellwether in 2016? college educated wives historically vote republican but more are leading towards hillary clinton this year. here's why.
7:02 pm
[indiscernible] [scratchy audio] kasich republicans, their wealthy, well-educated and wary of trump. they could swing their support to clinton. to thechoice has swung winner. >> that web video is available online at citizen an -- at cincinnati.org. joining me is jessie balmert. thank you for being with us. theme begin with political geography, the five including cleveland,
7:03 pm
columbus and cincinnati. how does a breakdown in terms of expected turnout for the democrats and republicans on election day? jessie: i'm actually in rleveland for a rally fo hillary clinton. and this is an area that is very traditionally democratic. this is an area that will go for her. i report,ere cincinnati, is a much more conservative area. are areas where hillary clinton is going to do a lot better than donald trump. >> we understand the voting blocks for clinton and trump. where does clinton need to cut into trump? jessie: college educated men and women are usually
7:04 pm
republicans. but hillary clinton sees this as a place to pick up votes. a lesser extent cleveland, where there are a lot of college educated white individuals. these are people who voted for governor john kasich over donald trump in the gop primary. as peoplethese people they might be able to convince because of trump's rhetoric to come to their side. trump is doing very well in southeast ohio, the appalachian region which has voted for democrats in the past but it is very much trump country this year. >> what about the divisions between the chair of the ohio republican party and the trump campaign? it is no secret that john sake kasich is not in the donald trump campaign. does that affect the turnout by mainstream republicans in ohio?
7:05 pm
jessie: it definitely has potential to play a role. the trump campaign has not been making a lot of friends with mainstream republican voters this year. like you said, the convention was in cleveland this year, in ohio. but our governor did not participate. he was a presidential contender and has refused to endorse donald trump. also the chair of the ohio republican party has refused -- the trump. trump campaignhe sent him an e-mail to republican leaders saying the chair was not on board. this is not going to change anybody's mind. it might be encouraging that trump is bucking the establishment in ohio, but the average republican voter might be turned off by that. >> is the obama coalition still
7:06 pm
in place in 2016? is there a strong democratic ground game for hillary clinton? jessie: i think the democrats are hoping the obama coalition is still here for hillary clinton. ohio in 2008 and 2012. they are hoping young voters and african-american voters will turn out for hillary clinton. so, we have seen less enthusiasm among those two groups. the clinton campaign is hoping they can offset any losses in those areas, suburban women are those -- or those college educated voters. >> let the ask you about the senate race. it is one of the key pivotal races. what impact is the senate race national race in ohio, will one affect the other in terms of turnout? jessie: it is interesting
7:07 pm
because it is usually the presidential race that affects the senate race. but in this case, trump might be on rob portman's voters to come out for trump. we have also found that there ofld be a decent amount ticket splitting between people who might vote for hillary clinton and vote for rob portman appalachians might vote for ted strickland and donald trump, which would be interesting. >> jessie balmert joining us from cleveland. at work available online cincinnati.com. thank you for being with us. in cleveland waiting for donald trump and governor mike pence to appear this rally.

i said how important is the wall. verysaid mr. trump it is important for the stoppage of drug flow coming into our country. it's very important. as secretary of state hillary clinton allowed thousands of criminal aliens to beale released -- to be released because their home countries would not take them back. these are gang members, these are killers, these are drug dealers. we bring them back to their home country and their country said very intelligently we don't want them. we want accept them. i promise you as president there will not be one such instant. those people will be gladly accepted by their home countries. it was just reported a man deported from our country 10 times in six years has been charged with raping a 12-year-old girl in august.
7:58 pm
texas police arrested a serial illegal immigrant rapists who had been deported five times. his victims included a 68-year-old woman with a cane who took his offer to drive him home. he left her on the side of a dirt road in horrible condition. the 64-year-old air force womann, and unbelievable was raped and beaten to death with a hammer by a repeat offending criminal illegal immigrant who should have been deported many times by the obama administration but never was. people still don't understand it. under a trumpet administration this crime wave ends and it ends very, very quickly.

[cheers] hillary and i are so glad to be with you this afternoon. we came right out of that great convention in philadelphia, and did a huge rally here at the beginning of august. it is so great to be back together with 17 days to go to a wonderful victory. [applause] senator kaine: we are not taking anything for granted in the next 17 days. one of the things we want to do is ask for volunteers. who is already volunteering? [applause] senator kaine: if you are not volunteering yet, and you have a lot of free time in the next 17 days, there are full going to row clipboards. you can sign up and text together, and they will bring you on board as we make history by electing hillary clinton as our president. [applause]
8:16 pm
senator kaine: hey, can i just ask how fantastic was hillary in the last debate? [applause] senator kaine: you are right, not just the last debate, all three debates. [applause] senator kaine: donald trump had been talking a lot about stamina, but boy, at the end of those debates, he really looked like he was on the ropes and hillary looks like she would have said yes if they said to do five more debate spirit she would have said, i am ready to go right now. [applause] senator kaine: when the debates finished, hillary was excited to get out and keep talking about her plans and vision for this country. donald could not get -- wait to
8:17 pm
get back and tweak out more insults. [laughter] senator kaine: those debates showed so much. they showed hillary's preparation and her experience and judgment. [applause] senator kaine: i think what they really showed was the temperature -- temperament, compassion, grace and poise that we want to see and our next president. [applause] senator kaine: in fact, i think if you had even watched those debates with the sound off, you still would have known that there is only one person on this stage that we want to be president of the united states. [applause] senator kaine: you guys all know that pennsylvania does not vote until election day, but i want to tell you this. in states where early voting has already begun, we are already seeing huge spikes at the polls and activity behind our ticket. [applause] senator kaine: support for the clinton/kaine ticket is surging,
8:18 pm
even in states fight arizona because americans have locked on and know that this election is about what kind of country we want for our children. they trust a stronger, together vision that hillary has laid out throughout this campaign. they have also seen the kind of campaign that donald trump has run. they are wondering how somebody who wants to be president of the united states is running a campaign that demonstrates almost every day, what a low opinion he has about the united states, and about the voters of the united states. [applause] senator kaine: my wife anne and i have a boy in the marines. donald said our military is a disaster. hillary got him to admit on the stage of the first debate that he does not even pay federal income taxes to support america's troops.
8:19 pm
donald likes to trash talk where the economy is, but we found out he makes all of his products overseas, and he has wrought chinese deal and aluminum to build his hotels, as that of buying american steel right here in pennsylvania. for some bizarre reason, he praises authoritarian leaders like vladimir putin, every chance he gets. he even promises that he will seek political and legal retribution against his enemies if he is president. maybe he is running for something else. during the last debate he even warned that he might not accept the result of american democracy or it -- democracy. [booing]
8:20 pm
senator kaine: it was like, he ran a campaign, and he insulted every group he could. mexican, immigrants, african-americans, women, pows, gold star family's and he has insulted every possible group who is left to insult or what he has decided is why don't i insult the pillars of american democracy. we cannot let this guy be president. [applause] senator kaine: i do not know if you have heard this thing, because he seems to really like to say this thing, especially when he is in pennsylvania, that the election is going to be rigged. he is losing, and he knows it, and he is not a guy who would ever accept responsibility and say, i lost an election because i run the most divisive campaign in american history. he will not accept responsibility so it has to be somebody else's fault, just like when the apprentice did not win
8:21 pm
an emmy award one year. he said it was clearly rigged. this guy cannot take responsibility for anything, anything. i think it proves that mr. khan, the virginia from charlottesville, the captain of his son who was killed who was protecting his colleagues. mr. khan had the right to ask the question if mr. trump had even read the rights of the constitution. [applause] senator kaine: i know we all think that's has been a long election season, and you can hear from my voice that i has been a long election season and i only joined and the last 100 days. she has had to do it for two years. i know that sometimes, and this is unfortunate and a challenge that we have to embrace, should we have the honor of winning and serving.
8:22 pm
sometimes a can seem like during this election cycle that we are seeing the worst that our country has to offer. let's remind ourselves and feel good that we are also seeing something special, something good about our country and that is what brings you here tonight. [applause] senator kaine: we are seeing something that does not get mentioned nearly enough. it was right here in pennsylvania that hillary and i accepted the nomination of the democratic party. you guys put us on our way. [applause] senator kaine: after she finished her acceptance speech on that thursday night, that powerful night, the clinton/kaine families walked out on the stage with that massive use of balloons. we have some fans of the blooms
8:23 pm
here. as -- balloons here. as we were standing on that stage, i saw my 21-year-old daughter trying to take and what it meant. i saw my wife anne, wife of 32 years come november 4, who has been with me through thick and thin, trying to take it all in. my mom kathy who is 82, who was standing on stage and turned to me as the balloons were coming down and said, tim, this is the best night of my life. [applause] senator kaine: at least for the next day and a half i got no criticisms or suggestions. i bought myself a little window that night. [laughter] senator kaine: as i was standing there with everyone, something
8:24 pm
really started to hit home. i have been thinking about this the entire campaign. i have been in public service for 22 years since i ran for the richmond council and one my first race at the landslide of 97 votes. let me tell you something, i would not have gotten very far, in fact, i would not have gotten into my first office without a whole lot of really amazing -- amazing women who have let me their strength on long the way so that i could be the candidate and have my name on a bumper sticker, on a yard sign, or on the ballot. [applause] senator kaine: that night in philadelphia, i was not just thinking about the love and support of strong women in my family, i was also thinking about women campaign managers, cabinet secretaries, it staff, volunteers, and i was thinking about women voters who have enabled me to serve. let's not forget, beginning with the presidential election of
8:25 pm
1964, in every presidential election, women have made up the majority of the american electorate. [applause] senator kaine: in other words, while i am probably no more free of patting myself on the back than anybody in politics, if i really think about it, i know i have only gotten in the position of leadership and responsibilities because i have had a lot of strong women who are willing to support me so that i could be the person getting the headline and doing the job. so, when hillary asks me three months ago today, the 22nd of july if i would be her running mate, i was honored to have the chance to play the role for her that so many strong women have played for me. [applause] senator kaine: now, make no mistake, women in america have come an awful long way. 50 years ago women could not
8:26 pm
even get a credit card without a man to cosign for them. they needed a husband's permission to start a business, they needed a husband's permission to cosign to rent an apartment. in some states women were barred from serving on juries. we have come a long way, but so much of the progress that we have made comments progress we should -- made, progress we should fill good about is at stake in this election. instead of turning back the clock on women, like donald trump was to do, we should be doing everything to keep pushing forward. [applause] senator kaine: because folks, it is 2016, isn't it time that women were paid the same wages and salary as men? [applause] senator kaine: isn't it time that women should be able to take off work to care for a
8:27 pm
child or relative without losing their job? [applause] senator kaine: i did not tell hillary does, hillary i win out and shook some hands of folks that were not able to come in because you guys turned out in such numbers that people were outside. a woman holding a three and a half-year-old daughter in her arms, i said, tell me about your daughter and she said, when my bought ducks when might -- when my daughter was born i got fired from my job because there was no maternity leave. she started to cry. this was three and a half years ago. we made a commitment that we would do something about that, not just for women, women and men should be able to take off time when their kids are born, or to care for a sick parent. [applause] senator kaine: i told her, you may not be able to get into the rally, but because he said that hillary and i will have even more energy, because this is one
8:28 pm
of the things we need to fix it. after 240 years of american history, isn't it about time that a woman can serve as president of the united states and be commander-in-chief? [applause] senator kaine: of course it's time. of course it's time. of course it's time. of course it's time. guess what? [applause] [chanting hillary] senator kaine: i think you can tell from the reaction that it is not only strong women, but also strong men who feel that now is the time. now is the time.
8:29 pm
[applause] senator kaine: now is the time. is there anybody out in this audience who has tried to do something for the first time? in your house, in your family, in your neighborhood, maybe in your work lays, in the school -- in the work place, in the school, maybe try to do something that has not been done before? is there anybody out there where you have tried to do that and you have had people say to you, i do not think that will happen, or i do not think the time is right for you? were somebody else is more qualified, or somebody else's ahead of you. sometimes the voice that says that to you is the voice of an adversary who wants to get in your way, and times it is the voice of a friend who says don't get your hopes up, i don't want you to be disappointed.
8:30 pm
sometimes that voice is not even an external, it is a voice inside because we all carry doubt inside of us. and at that moment when we are and everybody knows this, everybody has experienced this. let me tell you something about hillary clinton. she has heard that her entire life. maybe the time is not right, if you will be in this profession that is more for guys. she has heard this her entire life. she has heard it repeatedly during this campaign. she has heard it during this campaign. you guess what, hillary clinton has never let that voice stand in her way. [cheers and applause] senator kaine: she has never let it stand in her way. and as your next president, hillary clinton is not going to let anyone stand in your way. she will not let anyone stand in your way.
8:31 pm
just think about this, hillary's mom was born before women had the right to vote, and hillary's daughter chelsea will now get to vote for her mom to be president. [cheers and applause] senator kaine: that is the kind of generational progress that this country holds for all of us when we do our best work. that is why we have to do our best work for the next 17 days. because in just 17 short days, we can forever, and i mean forever, change the way little girls and little boys look at their future in this country. if you can be president of the united states, you can do anything. that is what hillary clinton's election, that is the message hillary clinton's election will send. pittsburgh, pittsburgh my friends here. i am proud to be a strong man
8:32 pm
supporting a strong woman who be -- who will be the next president of the united states. she will show an america that we really are, stronger together, please join me in welcoming our next president, hillary clinton. secretaryd applause] clinton: thank you. secretaryd applause] clinton: thank you all so much. [chanting hillary] secretary clinton: wow. it is so great to be back here in pittsburgh. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: i do not think it gets any better than to be accompanied out onto the stage
8:33 pm
by dan and pat rooney. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: i am a big admirer of the rooney family and i was so honored to serve with dan when he was our ambassador to ireland. [applause] senator kaine: the rooney family commitment to pittsburgh is really extraordinary. it is not just the amazing commitment to the steelers. [cheers] secretary clinton: as special as that is, but to their roots, what they believe in, their values, and their deep concern for future generations. i am incredibly humbled to be supported by dan and pat and the rooney family. it means a great deal to both
8:34 pm
him and me. i also want to thank congressman mike doyle. mike doyle. who is here with us. allegheny and county executive richard fitzgerald who is here. mayor bill paduto. mayor john federman. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: pennsylvania attorney general bruce beemer. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and all the other elected officials, it means a lot for you to be here with us. if all goes well in 17 days, we are looking forward to working with you on behalf of pittsburgh. secretaryd applause] clinton: some of you know that i have a special place in my heart for pennsylvania, and i am excited about helping, in any
8:35 pm
way that we can, for pittsburgh, allegheny county, and western pennsylvania to keep moving forward with confidence and optimism about what is possible for the future we want to create together. i am thrilled to be here with tim kaine. [cheers] secretary clinton: i asked him to be my running mate because i knew he would be one of the smartest, toughest, most qualified vice presidents we have ever had. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: i also knew he had never lost an election. [laughter] secretary clinton: i kind of figured that might rub off on me a little bit. now that i have gotten to spend more time with him, and with his wonderful wife anne and their family, i am even more confident that he will be such an extraordinary leader for our
8:36 pm
country. he is not just smart, tough and qualified, tim kaine is as good and decent a person as you will ever meet. secretaryd applause] clinton: i am deeply honored to have him by my side in this campaign. tim and i are excited by all of the energy and enthusiasm we are seeing across the country, particularly here in pennsylvania. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: both of us, unlike our opponent do not believe we can do this alone. we believe that we will do this by working with all of you. and that we are going to come together in the next 17 days and convince everybody you can to get out and vote, because
8:37 pm
whatever issue you care about, it's going to be on the ballot. it may not be listed, but it will be on the ballot. whether you care about new, good jobs with a rising incomes or you care about better education or you care about what we can do to get the cost of prescription drugs down, what ever it is you care about, it is literally going to be on that ballot. my name and tim's name might be the ones on the ballot, but we will be representing everything that you and we hope we can do together in our country. secretaryd applause] clinton: and we're going to need help doing that after the election, and that is why i hope you will do everything you can to elect katie mcginty your next senator. [applause] secretary clinton: you know,
8:38 pm
katie is the daughter of a philadelphia police officer. i think she is one of 10 children, right? one of 10 children. she has devoted her professional life to protecting working families. i have known her now for more than 20 years, when she was really young, and i have seen that same can-do spirit to read -- spirit, she gets up every day, to see what she can do to fight for healthier neighborhoods, to keep our kids and healthy, to fight for cleaner air and cleaner water, to help people make the most out of their own lives. now she is running for the senate, because like tim and i, she believes our economy should work for everyone, not just those at the top. secretaryd applause] clinton: katie is exactly the kind of partner we need in the senate. but more importantly, she is exactly the kind of senator
8:39 pm
that pittsburgh and western pennsylvania needs in the senate. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: we have got to get things done for the people of pennsylvania and america and katie will help us break through the gridlock, make a difference in people's lives, help us create more good jobs in people's lives. guarantee equal pay for women, defending planned parenthood. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: i think it is pretty clear when you look at katie's opponent, he still refuses to stand up to donald trump. [booing] secretary clinton: a lot of republicans have. they have had the grit to stand up and say he does not represent me. [applause]
8:40 pm
secretary clinton: but pat toomey heard donald attack a grieving gold star family who lost their son in iraq, he heard donald call mexican immigrants rapists, he heard him say terrible things about women, he heard him spread the lie that our first black president wasn't really born in america, now how much more does pat toomey need to hear? if he doesn't have the courage to stand up to donald trump after all this, can you be sure he will stand up for you when it counts against powerful interests? [applause] so, you know, when i look at this, i'm thinking to myself, we have work to do in washington. and i know it's not easy. i understand we have real challenges. i believe we can do it. i would not be standing here, tim would not be with me --
8:41 pm
[applause] but we need people in washington who put you first, who get up every day thinking about middle-class families, who worry about where you are going to get the money to send your kids to college, how you are going to take care of your mom or dad because they are failing and what are you going to do for them? how are you going to deal with all of the challenges? that is what i try to do my entire life. that is who you should be electing, people who care about you, your families, your children. now, asand applause] tim said, he asked if any of you watched the debate on wednesday. well, i will tell you, that was the third and last time i will ever have to debate donald trump. [cheering] secretary clinton: [laughs]
8:42 pm
i mean, think about this. i have now spent four and a half hours on stage with donald, proving once again i have the stamina to be president. and commander in chief. [cheering] secretary clinton: and after every one of those debates, people have said, how did you do that? [laughter] secretary clinton: and really, you just have to be a good -- be of good cheer. you are in front of 50, 60, 70, 80 million people. so, no matter what he would say, i just kept thinking, of all the people i have met throughout this campaign -- just early today i've met henry over there. henry is on top of his dad's shoulders, and henry gave me a
8:43 pm
note saying he hoped i would be president, and you know, i really want to be president for all of the kids in america to do everything i can to help you. [audience chanting "hillary"] secretary clinton: you know, i also did have a chance to talk about important concerns people have shared with me. from the first day i started this campaign back in april 2015, people have been telling me what is on their minds, and it is one of the greatest honors -- you know, sometimes it is eeting. i will be in a coffee shop shaking hands or i will come down and shake hands on a rope
8:44 pm
line, just running into somebody. and that person, that man or woman or that young person takes a moment to stop, looks into my eyes. i can tell they are trying to take my measure, and i am grateful that they take their vote, their choice so seriously, and then they might say something like, i have a really terrible problem in my family. my son or my daughter has gotten addicted to opiates or to heroin. what are you going to do about it? or maybe they will say, my brother has schizophrenia, and we can't afford to get him the kind of consistent care he needs. or maybe they will say, i am a diabetic. and the drug company has just raised the cost of insulin, and i can't afford it. what are you going to do about it? that is the right question to ask anybody running for president, because at the end of the day, this is about you.
8:45 pm
as i said the other night, we are going to invest in the middle class. we are going to grow this economy from the middle out and the bottom up, not the top down. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and we are going to make sure that we produce a enough good jobs with rising incomes so that every single person, especially every single young person in america can go as far as your hard work and talent will take you. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: now, i've got to say, i believe in hard work. that is how i was raised. i believe you've got to work for what you get in life. i think we have to knock down some of the barriers that stand in the way of people getting ahead and going as far as they should. [applause] secretary clinton: for me, that
8:46 pm
starts by believing in our country. you know, there has been no other place in the history of the world that has given so much opportunity to so many? do we have problems? yes, we have problems. do we have challenges? of course we do. we are human beings. there is no more blessed place. donald trump did something the other night that no other presidential nominee has ever done of either party. he refused to say he would respect the results of this election. [audience booing] secretary clinton: make no mistakes about this, my friends. he is threatening our democracy. look, i have lost elections. you don't feel very good the next day, believe me. [laughter] secretary clinton: but we know in our country the difference between leadership and dictatorship, right? [cheers and applause]
8:47 pm
secretary clinton: you know, the peaceful transition of power is one of those things that sets us apart, and whether you support me or my opponent together, we must show we support american democracy. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and i believe both donald trump and i should be grateful for the opportunities that our country has given us. and the best way to demonstrate that we support our democracy is to turn out and vote. and there is an inspiring story being written by people across america right now. we have just reached a milestone, more than 200 million americans are registered to vote in this election. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and you know what?
8:48 pm
that includes 50 -- more than 50 million young people. more than ever before. i find that a very hopeful sign. and here in pennsylvania, hundreds of thousands of more voters are registered then were in 2012. what does this tell us? i think it tells us no matter how much negativity is out there, something exciting is happening right now. people are coming together -- democrats, republicans, independents -- all to reject hate and division. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and in the states where they can, people are motivated to vote early and -- to defend core american
8:49 pm
values and embrace a future where every person counts, everyone has a place, everyone can contribute. you see, despite what donald trump may think, most americans really believe we can do better. most americans really believe women should be respected. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: most americans really believe that workers should be paid fairly -- [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: most americans believe that the united states should work with our allies to lead the world and keep us safe. [applause] secretary clinton: the energy we see in the final weeks of this campaign is about more than winning an election. it is about standing up to the kind of country that we want for
8:50 pm
ourselves and our children. and it is about the lessons we want to teach our sons and daughters. i want you to know, if tim and i are fortunate enough to be your president and vice president, we will work with everyone. now i imagine here in allegheny county and if you are from further west, you probably know people who are thinking about voting for donald trump. and here is what i want you to tell them. i want you to tell them that i understand that they need a president who cares about them, will listen to them, and i want to be their president, too. secretaryd applause] clinton: because whether you agree or disagree with me, whether you vote for me or vote against me, i believe we can
8:51 pm
disagree without being disagreeable. i have seen that. i know it can happen. i know there are a lot of people here in pennsylvania who have a lot of questions. they want to know, how do we move forward better. they want to know about their town where there used to be a lot of jobs and there are not as many anymore. they are upset what they see around them. i get that. but anger is not a plan. secretaryd applause] clinton: and we need -- we need to work together. we need plans that will help us deal with the legitimate concerns and questions people have in pennsylvania. i think that is what our whole country needs right now. that is what i will try to do. i am not going to pretend that
8:52 pm
we can snap our fingers and solve our problems. that does not happen in the real world. but i know we can make progress together. the choice we face in this election is stark, especially when it comes to the economy. tim and i believe when the middle class thrives, america drives, and when we invest in working families in the middle class, in small businesses we can make the economy work again for everybody. i think it is fair to say that both donald trump and pat toomey have a different perspective. they believe -- and they believe this -- if you give trillions of dollars -- and they mean trillion with a t -- of tax cuts to millionaires, billionaires, corporations, it will all trickle down to everybody else. booing]e secretary clinton: it has not
8:53 pm
worked before and it has caused us a lot of messes we have had to clean up, and i have been privileged to see presidents up close and personal -- right. married one, that's right. worked for one. and here is what i know. when you focus on helping the middle class, you end up lifting everybody. when you focus on helping the top, you help the top. that is not good enough. donald likes to say he is on the side of american workers, but his actions tell a different story. yes, he bought cheap chinese steel and aluminum for his construction projects. he should be buying good american-made steel that supports good american jobs. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: i would like to hear donald explain to american steelworkers filing for
8:54 pm
unemployment why he put chinese steel workers to work, instead of steelworkers here in pennsylvania. and for all his talk about putting america first, he has made many of his products in 12 different countries. if he wants to make america great again, why doesn't he start by making things in america, again? [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and we now know -- we now know he hasn't paid a dime and federal income taxes for years. he says that makes him smart. well, i don't know how smart you have to be to lose a billion dollars in a year in the first place. [laughter] secretary clinton: especially -- answer me this -- how do you lose a billion dollars when you are in the casino business? [laughter] secretary clinton: never could figure that out. but what it means is every one of us is paying more in federal income taxes than a billionaire has.
8:55 pm
that is wrong and we will end of those kinds of loopholes and gimmicks. secretaryd applause] clinton: i will tell you what. it also means donald has contributed zero -- zero for our military, zero for our vets, grants to helpll young people go to college, zero four our highways, zero for everything. and yet he stands up on stage and criticizes america. it's wrong. with your help, we will make the biggest investment in new job since world war ii, jobs and infrastructure. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: our roads, our bridges, our tunnels, our ports, our airports, our water systems all need help, and those are a lot of good jobs, jobs that can't be exported out of pennsylvania. [cheers and applause]
8:56 pm
secretary clinton: i believe we can bring advanced manufacturing back to the united states. that is why we will invest $10 billion in a make it in america partnership that brings together workers and unions and businesses, universities, community colleges. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: some countries are going to take the lead with precision machining. some countries went to take the lead with 3-d printing. we invented both of those technologies. we should take the lead and we should have the jobs. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: we are also going to fight climate change with clean, renewable energy jobs. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and we are going to help small businesses which will
8:57 pm
create two thirds of all of the jobs in america. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: and we are going to defend your right to organize and bargain collectively for higher wages and benefits. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: don't let anybody fool you, my friends. assault on worker rights and unions is an assault on the middle class. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: it is time to say loudly and clearly, right to work is wrong for workers and wrong for america. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: so, i have set some big goals. i am excited about what we are going to do. and it's all going to put people to work right here. and sometimes folks say to me, how are you going to get that done? you go to the congress -- first, i hope we will elect some or
8:58 pm
more democrats. that will be job number one. number two, i think it will be a very symbol question. are members of congress, members of the senate going to be on the side of the rich, the powerful, and the wealthy, or on your side? and you know what? they are going to have to answer that question. if they stay beholden to the special interest, if they continue to do the bidding of the lobbyist and lawyers and others who stand outside their doors -- i have been in the senate. i have seen it. i know it. if they are going to continue to do the work of those who are already privileged in america, then i want to make sure that they don't come back to washington after the next election. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: we are in a great, great high school here. i am so proud to be here. [cheers and applause]
8:59 pm
secretary clinton: and so, we are going to be a good partner with education, especially with educators. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: we are going to start with universal pre-k. we want good schools with good teachers in every zip code so every kid gets a world-class education. secretaryd applause] clinton: i want us to bring technical education back to high school. i think it was a mistake when we took it out. there are a lot of good jobs that you can be prepared for in today's economy -- coming out of high school, maybe community college, going into an apprenticeship program, and i want to lift up that work. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: a four-year college
9:00 pm
degree should not be and is not the only way to have a good job with a rising income and a satisfying life. we are going to make public colleges and universities tuition free for any families making less than $125,000 a year. secretaryd applause] clinton: and we are going to help you pay down your college debt. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: it's going to be great. to help you pay it back as a percentage of your income at your job, so you are never on the hook for more than you can afford. i worked on this with senator bernie sanders, and it's going to help save -- [cheers and applause] secretary clinton: it's going to help save people thousands of dollars. in fact after a year, maybe
