I keep hearing people talk about wikileaks, and the hack of the democratic parties emails. They say curiosity killed the cat. So, I searched for any reference of Grand Rapids. Here's what turned up.

They say you don't want to know how the sausage is made, but I figured eh, what could it hurt?

    Will Podesta be here as well?

    Just another innocent enough inter-office communication.

    Just gave you a call. Connolly is looking to confirm if you're going to the event in Grand Rapids tomorrow.

    I assume that you are NOT going since both Huma and Jake are also staying back to do calls, but wanted to confirm.

    Let me know! Thanks.

    Hillary coming for Betty Ford's Funeral

    This one speaks for itself I think.

    I feel an obligation to go to Betty Ford's funeral which I just learned is on Tuesday--yikes! What can be done to salvage the Tuesday schedule? And could I get a plane to go?

    She did in fact make it.

    Praise of Canada's Healthcare System

    This email is actually interesting in it's own way. This email is about things Secretary Clinton said, at one point or another, that need ... well... I'll just quote.


    Attached are the flags from HRC’s paid speeches we have from HWA. I put some highlights below. There is a lot of policy positions that we should give an extra scrub with Policy. In terms of what was opened to the press and what was not, the Washington Examiner got a hold of one of the private speech contracts (her speeches to universities were typically open press), so this is worth a read http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/clintons-speeches-are-cozy-for-wall-streeters-but-closed-to-journalists/article/2553294/section/author/dan-friedman

    So, there are a ton of statements ... so I had to do a search to find the Grand Rapids appropriate one.

    “If you look at countries that are comparable, like Switzerland or Germany, for example, they have mixed systems. They don't have just a single-payer system, but they have very clear controls over budgeting and accountability. If you look at the single-payer systems, like Scandinavia, Canada, and elsewhere, they can get costs down because, you know, although their care, according to statistics, overall is as good or better on primary care, in particular, they do impose things like waiting times, you know. It takes longer to get like a hip replacement than it might take here.” [Hillary Clinton remarks to ECGR Grand Rapids, 6/17/13]
