Bill Clinton: "We Need A Jobs Program'

By Sheila Samples

Former president Bill Clinton addressed the House Democrats' annual retreat in Virginia on Friday, sharing his thoughts on how his party should pursue its legislative agenda in the 113th Congress. While Clinton acknowledged that "we do have a long-term debt problem," he stressed "that doesn't mean that austerity now is the right response." He also noted that Republicans only seem to push for harsh austerity cuts "when Democrats are president."
