ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sat down and listened to voters at a campaign stop in Connecticut where one woman made a point about earning a living wage told her, "We all have different walks in life, we can't all be doctors and lawyers." Clinton thanked the woman and listened to another woman who was facing foreclosure. "Nine million people lost their jobs because of the Great Recession, and five million homes were lost, and I put the responsibility squarely on the Republicans and I don't say that to be partisan, I say it because during those eight years there were a lot of things that could be done, that were not done to try to help people," Clinton said. Another woman stressed that "No human being should be afraid to go on leave and think that they are going to lose their job because the company doesn't think it is right for you to get sick." Clinton will face voters in five states next Tuesday when Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island go to the polls.
