Hillary Supports Stealing Your Money If You Don’t Buy Health Insurance

by Kevin

The former Democrat front runner, Hillary Rodham Clinton in her quest to become national mommy president says that she will steal your money if you don’t health insurance:

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to garnish the wages of workers who refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.

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 on ABC’s “This Week,” 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. With her proposals for subsidies, she said, “it will be affordable for everyone.”

Not only is she going to steal my money to give health insurance to deadbeats, but she’s going to steal my money if I do not decide to buy health insurance.

I don’t know what’s worse, the fact Hillary Clinton is even running for president on such an immoral platform or the fact that people are actually voting for her?

  2. I’ve got a post up detailing exactly what’s wrong with our health care system today and why Hillary’s is exactly the wrong solution.

    I’d love it folks would come on by and take a read.

  3. I read your post Quincy, seems to be right on target. I think that Hillary’s plan has only been partially revealed as yet. Once she gets her plan in motion, the mechanism to control demand for health care will kick in. It will start out by encouraging people to be more healthy, and rapidly morph into mandatory exercise regimen, limits on what foods and beverages one can ingest, mandatory birth control etc…
