Skip to comments.Clinton: 'On Your Own' Attitude Must Go
Posted on 05/29/2007 1:43:14 PM PDT by george76
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."
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.

I can hear the strains of the Soviet Union’s National Anthem playing in the ether.
Komrade Klinton should call it what it is. It’s not like she’ll lose the lefties over it.
Dabbling in the gray area of communism.
Hide your assets,......and your guns.
She means individualism and God.
Replaced by collectivism and the government.
I wonder if she would go for the TV stations like Chavez.
“Special privileges for none. (except me.)”
I can’t believe she came right out and said this!
Well, since she has never actually accomplished anything on her own, I can see why she would be somewhat intimidated by the concept.
Well... there you go! That's pretty much all I would need to know.
From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs..........

Okay, Hillary, after you.
Once you start divesting yourself of all those millions you are worth, I’ll start giving more of my meager income to the gov’t.
Wonder if Hillary has practiced the classic Kremlim Wall hand wave. I can almost see her there surrounded by Ickies, Rosenthal, Grunwald and the other “Village People” waving to the plebians they have just robbed.
“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.”
Conservatism is that we are all equal before the law and we all have equal opportunity. She may be selling but I ain’t buying.
I don’t what this mannish broad means by ‘On your own.”
Since LBJ’s boondoogle known as “The Great Society,”
we’ve spent trillions on welfare programs and continue to do so. Yet, the problems....and poverty....remain.
If somebody, due to his circumstances, does not have as many opportunities as somebody else, is not government intervention to give him those opportunities a special prividege that is available to him, but not to somebody else?
Socialists are always talking about how the Fat Cats have all the special privileges, and yet the entire Socialist program is basically a scheme to dole out privileges and wealth based on some alternate formula.
Hey she did work. In fact she worked as a lawyer on land deals (like Whitwewater and Castle Grande) for the Rose Law firm. That is if we can ever find those billing records.
Why, oh why, is she living in the United States then? Just go to one of those freedom-loving, prosperous countries that doesn’t have that “On Your Own” attitude that curses America.
You can bet your last nickel she is not intending to be 'in it' with the rest of us down 'on the plantation' ("You know what I mean....").
“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
Hide your assets,......and your guns
You just reminded me that with so much of our wealth in retirement plans we can no longer hide it and they know how to tax it..................
Rugged individualism, self reliance, or dependence on an all knowing, all controlling welfare state?
Which way America?
Yay, more proof to hate this wench.
Victory united! Sieg heil!
Mark Twain said “the only persons who should say we are a women with child or a man with a tape worm.”
Her Majesty has always hinted at being a socialist but now she has openly announced it. Amazing that a socialist can actually be competitive for the presidency of the United States. Was all our history of freedom to this point for naught?
So When does the Hammer and Sickle replace the Stars and Stripes?
“I prefer a ‘we’re all in it together’ society,” she said.....Gag me with a spoon! Your stupid attempts at trying to find a nametag to hang on ways to take more of my money are beyond stupid you village idiot!!!
Hey Hillary, will Bill share all his women? From those who have to those who need?
Yeah, I guess covering up scandals might be considered “work”, at least in the legal profession. But I’d imagine an assembly line worker or farmer would think differently.
She paid how many millions in consulting fees for this transparent crap? Just the person we need to “manage” the U.S. economy.
I’m sorry, Mrs. “make it up as you go along” Clinton, but I happen to be in the middle class and President Bush’s tax cuts were very much appreciated.
Wasn’t it Jesse Jackson who said, “It’s better to have the hope of getting something from the Clintons than to actually get it from Bush.”
As long as the media doesn’t question her statements, the bigger the lies she tells (Clinton 101).
Just say NO to communism and hildeb!tch!
Its the politics of envy. Nothing more.

It didn’t take long for some Americans to forget the whole Independence thing that made this country separate from a royal tax and distribution society. The Third Way will take care of all of us. The government will do all the work. And the people will be slaves to government. Hail to Queen Hillary!
I’m wondering if she is eyeing the profits of Tyson Foods, or if Exxon Mobil’s profits are the only ones she intends to “take.”
I wish this wench would just go away. I hope Al Gore runs just to aggravate her.
Ain't that the truth.
Look, Comrade Hillary - I do NOT need your government-mandated "help" to make a living, or raise my children. In other words, shove it - and h@ll will freeze over before I vote for a prevaricating political pragmatist like you...
The voice of Communism........plain and simple.
“We’re going to take things away from you for your own good.”
BTW, since her husband left office, has HER GAP with the poor grown or shrunk?
Hillary’s utopia— where the government wipes every tear and half the fannies and the elites decide what’s good for us poor ignorant folks who are too dumb to run our own lives.
Nah, most of big TV here is in lockstep with her (or is it goosestep?)
What she will go after, and I mean priority #1 if she somehow gets elected POTUS, will be conservative talk radio.
Silence your critics. It's the Marxist way......
