We Are All in It Together, Clinton Says [Shared Prosperity Should Replace "On Your Own' Society"]
AP ^ | May 29, 2007 | Holly Ramer

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it's time to replace an "on your own" society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an "ownership society" really is an "on your own" society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

"I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."

That means pairing growth with fairness, she said, to ensure that the middle-class succeeds in the global economy, not just corporate CEOs.

"There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed," she said. "Fairness doesn't just happen. It requires the right government policies."

Clinton spoke at the Manchester School of Technology, which trains high school students for careers in the construction, automotive, graphic arts and other industries. The school highlighted one of the nine goals she outlined: increasing support for alternative schools and community colleges.

"We have sent a message to our young people that if you don't go to college ... that you're thought less of in America. We have to stop this," she said. "Our country cannot run without the people who have the skills that are taught in this school."

Beyond education, Clinton said she would reduce special breaks for corporations, eliminate tax incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas and open up CEO pay to greater public scrutiny.

Clinton also said she would help people save more money by expanding and simplifying the earned income tax credit; create new jobs by pursuing energy independence; and ensure that every American has affordable health insurance.

Kind of brings meaning to her speech “We are going to take away from you for the common good of all”.

Socialists all. If we can’t all succeed together we must all fail together.

And those who can, must wear the lodestone of those who either CAN’T (some) or WON’T (most) around their necks.

Didn’t we fight and win a Cold War over this?

Oh my. This is probably the closest thing to a proposition for communism in the US that I have ever heard from a US Senator. Of the many ironies contained in her statement the greatest to me is that she says that government should start benefitting all people. Taken literally that would mean that I would have to start getting WIC and welfare checks and stop paying those pesky taxes. I don’t think fair is what she wants.

Oh wait, I mean, made America into the most prosperous, powerful nation on earth.

If the gap between rich and poor is widening, then it’s the government’s fault. Let’s face it, the government runs everything these days.

Over at DU, she’s been called a ‘corporatist’, this is her feeble attempt to out-dupe the moonbats. She’s smart enough to see that Obama is catching up to her in the polls.

You can call her what you want, but if this is the democrat platform, they are going to win and win big.

There is a lot of anger outside FR and the Beltway over economic factors right now, and to ignore it and just sling names at the opposition is a big loser.

Oh happy days, I just got off work (nightshift at hospital)- Hillary- where do you want me to mail my paycheck to help the poor who chose to sleep all night and NOT do shift work? I do not mind helping the truly in need, but come on- I am sure she won’t be doing her fair share.

Not each other, but this speech certainly justifies, "Comrade Clinton".

How curious, indeed. I just finished the next to final draft of what will be the June Feature at the Return Of The Gods Web Site. It basically confronts Hillary's nonsense, here, without any realization on my part that she was about to show her true colors. My subject is "The Responsibility Factor," and explores the premise that maximum individual responsibility works best in virtually every matter of social concern. I believe that the point is easily demonstrated: Responsibility Factor.

My inclination is to go after Hillary on this. It pits her clearly--and unequivocally--against the American tradition.

Really? We’re in the middle of hot economy and you are saying that “economic factors” have people in uproar?

What economic factors and who is it in an uproar?

Moonbats think everything is bad, but the rest are out buying houses.

OK. I'm good with the idea.

Dear Hillary,

Please send me some of the millions of dollars you have made. You have a lot more than me and, as you said, we are all in this together.

I'll be looking for my check from you. Thanks for sharing.

Yours truly,
