Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday that while skepticism of government is “part of our DNA” as Americans, people who openly “dis” the government are effectively “dissing our democracy.”

“When people dis the government — we’re really dissing ourselves and dissing our democracy,” she told supporters in Iowa City, The Hill reported. “This is my last rodeo, and I believe that we can leave not just the country in good shape for the future, but we can get a deep bench of young people to decide that they want to go into politics.”

Mrs. Clinton explained, however, that it’s “perfectly fine” to be skeptical of the government, and that it’s “part of our DNA,” The Hill reported.

“I want people’s lives to be better when I finish as your president than when I started,” she added.
