WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that every child born in the United States should get a $5,000 "baby bond" from the government to help pay for future costs of college or buying a home. Clinton, her party's front-runner in the 2008 race, made the suggestion during a forum hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus

So in 18 years, that will be worth about $13,000? Wow. That probably won’t cover books in 2025.
How much will $5,000 buy in 17 years? Probably won’t even cover the books you will need for 4 years of college.
Want to bet there are income limitations to getting the bond? Or that you have to forfeit the bond if you make too much money when college time comes?
So after Chelsea’s White House wedding, she will get 5 grand for the kid, lol.
This suggestion is supported by bar owners in college towns all across America.
Correct me if I am wrong.......won’t somebody have to pay for this lameass idea? Oh, yeah....you and me. What a crock of monkey crap. She was pandering to a crowd that is entrenched in an entitlement mentality.
Who suggested this, was about a year ago.
try lowering taxes Mrs Clinton. Your way means we’ll have to raise taxes to pay for it meaning parents will end up having less to give their children...
Will that include aborted babies?
Can you imagine the wall of pregnant women rushing the border for this one?
For a mere $5000 per head we will own you! The government never “gave” an American money without strings.
Yea, that’s the ticket. Give away more of taxpayers dollars money to those that probably shouldn’t be having babies to start with.
What a sneaky way to make sure every new born is entered into the nation’s database. We know who you are and what you are doing......
What good will another gubermint bond be to them? It is just like that farce of a SocSecLockBox. When it comes time to dip into the bonds, guess who has to redeem them? Yep, the taxpayers. That file draw full of those special SS bonds are nothing more than IOU’s for money that is already spent. There is no “investment” anywhere - the bonds are future claims on the taxpayer and at a rate that will astound and astonish. Our grand and great-grandchildren will have to kill us off in order to survive. These Hillary bonds are more of the same, nothing more that a Hsu ponzi scheme.
Talk about a Nanny State.
And the pot dealers.
