Your argument is that it's inherently wrong. Either stick with that or move on. Don't change the argument to something else and then shift the burden of proof to me.

And who is responsible for approving it? Clinton's writing it/not writing it would seem to be beside the point.

Both are corrupt and rotten to the core, and everything that they touch turns to ****.
