Bless Hillary For This Divine Bounty She Has Bequeathed Us

Matthew Yglesias objects to a Hillary Clinton line that goes like this:
Speeches don’t put food on the table. Speeches don’t fill up your tank, or fill up your prescription, or do anything about that stack of bills that keeps you up at night. My opponent gives speeches. I offer solutions.
But tellingly, his criticism of Hillary’s statement has nothing to do with her ridiculous implication that she does put food on our table, fill up our tank, fill “up” our prescription, and pays our bills. Apparently, that part makes perfect sense to him and his readers. To ‘liberals’, you see, all of that stuff is just what government does.
