Now I think I've heard it all -- Hillary Clinton has absolutely gone out of her mind.
Check out this blurb from the Associated Press via Yahoo News:
WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to have workers' wages garnisheed if they refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.
Who in the hell does this woman think she is?
The New York senator has criticized presidential rival Barack Obama for pushing a health plan that would not require universal coverage. Clinton has not always specified the enforcement measures she would embrace, but when pressed during a television interview, she said: "I think there are a number of mechanisms" that are possible, including "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment."
Clinton said such measures would apply only to workers who can afford health coverage but refuse to buy it, which puts undue pressure on hospitals and emergency rooms. Under her plan, she said, health care "will be affordable for everyone" because she would limit premium payments "to a low percent of your income."
Here is a link to the entire story:
This is utterly outrageous! I wonder what all those unions who typically back Democrat candidates for president are thinking right now?
Actually, this could work out for the best. This is just the kind of thing I hope would change the minds of some, and turn the stomachs of many, who would consider voting for this Communist in Democrat's clothing.
Our health care system is far from perfect. But, this is not the solution, no matter how you tweak it based on percentage of income, etc.
Hillary Clinton is dangerous to our country, dangerous to our political system, and dangerous to our way of life. This ridiculous statement proves it.
If she is willing to make such a statement for the public record, what else might she have up her sleeve that we won't know about until she is sitting in the Oval Office, if she gets elected? I pray this does not happen.
