Ain't that f'n nice of her.


Host George Stephanapolous asked Clinton specifically about garnisheeing wages at least three times before she made the admission.

"What we've got to do is have shared responsibility. Everybody has to pay something, but obviously on a sliding scale," Clinton said. "I think you can automatically enroll people, and you will then say, 'You've got to be part of this.'"

"If you don't start with universal health care, if you don't say everybody's going to be in the system, we'll never get there," she added.

Clinton said such measures would apply only to workers who can afford coverage but refuse to purchase it, increasing the financial pressure on hospitals. She indicated her plan "will be affordable for everyone" because she'd limit premium payments "to a low percent of your income."

So as she is a Democrat, that means higher taxes...

Add to that, her garnishment of my wages for her fantasy health care...

I would be better off sitting on my rear cashing a welfare check every month...

That is not a true statement. A garnishment is an old common law term referring to a judgment enforcement technique. It is sort of a future lien. That is, a garnishment can attach wages not yet earned. Otherwise it is a judicial term similar to a lien. The president cannot render judgments.

Opponents of a single payer health care plan will tell every lie the mind of man can invent to prevent losing their privileged status. This is one.

Congress passes laws, not the president.

That seems to be the plan. Make it impractical for anyone earning less than 200K/year to keep on working by making unemployment just as profitable if not more profitable than actually working.

This way you solve the middle class's problems once and for all. You make them poor.

Every politicians dream is a wealthy elite class they can live in and a destitute class dependent on government nanny state policies to survive.

The middle class is made up of the last few chumps who still work hard, who still try to succeed, who keep bitterly paying those taxes year after year hoping they'll stop going up and hoping if they just behave themselves the "g-man" will leave them alone...

Policies like this one will solve that problem. Those damn people wanting to be independent. How dare they?!

Here don, www.nytimes.com...

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton inched closer Sunday to explaining how she would enforce her proposal that everyone have health insurance, but declined to specify — as she has throughout the campaign — how she would penalize those who refuse.

Have you not observed how her husband used the " Executive decree" ?

"how she would penalize those who refuse", how about that statement?

Do you want the reality of the situation?

I pay $92 dollars a month for family health care...but 40% income tax between provincial and federal taxes. (that was $3400 for the month of January. not including my deductions for Canadian Pension Plan which i will never qualify for because i make too much. And the deductions for Employment Insurance which i will also never qualify for unless i get laid off NOT fired OR quit.

Alberta is the only province to pay the healthcare premium also... I would rather have REALISTIC taxes and pay my own way.


RUN VERY FAST. AWAY FROM ANY FORM OF SOCIALISM. ITS A FORM OF VOTE BUYING.

I want to move to the USA so badly but they dont like the fact I have a criminal record from 12 years ago.

Yeah, that is a nice fantasy, but unfortunately not entirely the case. Don't get me wrong though, you are TECHNICALLY correct, but when we look at how GW has passed some of his BS through Congress, I think you'll be singing a very different tune.

1 example: Most members of Congress admit to not even reading the Patriot Act before passing it because it was too long. A very clever gov't slid things right on through which Congress had voted against in the past, all because someone know how to work the system and USE Congress to make their own laws.

I blame both the gov't AND congress for things passed. Another problem arises when GW consistently threatens Congress with Vetos. That is instilling hopelessness in the voting members of Congress. Another way to manipulate the system.

Congress' word is official, but they are not the ones making the laws.

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


SRC: commonsenselogic.blogspot.com...



George Stephanopoulos had to ask her three times before he got an answer, but Hillary finally confesses that her socialized medicine plan will have an ominous-sounding “enforcement aspect” for people who don’t want to buy health care insurance.


SRC: sayanythingblog.com...



STEPHANOPOULOS: Will you have fines for people who don’t have health care, who don’t go by the mandate? Will you garnish their wages?


STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me interrupt you there. … I still haven’t heard if people can afford it and they don’t buy the insurance will their wages be garnished? Will they have to pay fines?


STEPHANOPOULOS: I want to bear down on this question one more time…. Will you garnish wages of people who don’t comply, don’t buy the insurance?

SEN. CLINTON: George, we will have an enforcement mechanism. Whether it’s that or it’s some other mechanism through the tax system or automatic enrollments.


And yes, I actually watched this happen.

I don't remember where I heard this but:

"If you think Health care is expensive now, wait until it's "free""

Please, someone (don?) tell me the reason that people believe that other people own them, a living, retirement or health care!
