Hillary Clinton's nonexistent accomplishments in the US Senate
It has been hard for Hillary Clinton's supporters to identify anything that she accomplished while Secretary of State. Well, it should be just as hard for people to identify any real mark she made while in the US Senate. Fifteen of the twenty bills or resolutions she passed involved designating names for government buildings, honoring events, or congratulating people on their accomplishments (show in red). The five bills of more substance are marked in blue. Two of those five designated land in Puerto Rico as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. A third bill renewed a grant program "to develop coordinated respite care programs" -- a center to study elderly care. A fourth "authorize assistance for individuals with disabilities in foreign countries, includeng victims of landmines and other victims of civil strife and warfare, and for other purposes." A fifth was to extend unemployment insurance in 2001, but there was nothing unique about that bill and it appears as if it was a gift to her so that she could claim that she had something passed.
So after eight years in the Senate, Clinton's legislative accomplishments boil down to two relatively small grant programs.
