Hillary now pandering to Guamanians

From Jake Tapper's blog:

In an interview with KUAM-TV, Clinton, asked about giving Guam citizens the right to vote for president, said, "It seems to me that it is long past time that we remedy this inequity. It doesn't reflect American values; it is out of step with the move towards equality and full citizenship rights, and I will do everything I can to make sure the people of Guam's vote are counted."

Clinton also expressed her support for legislation to offer up to $126 million in reparations to Guam residents for their suffering during World War II at the hands of the Japanese military, which occupied the island.

The U.S. would pay the reparations, since it long ago forgave Japan its war debts.

Lemme get this straight. Sixty-three years after WWII ended, the American taxpayer is going to shell out nine-figures ($126,000,000) in "reparations" to the descendants of the Guamanians who suffered under Japanese occupation?

All this for four delegates???
