When it comes to Hillary's baby bond scheme, she failed to mention that it would cost taxpayers $20 billion annually. But that's besides the point
A Rasmussen telephone poll found that 60% of likely voters oppose Hillary's plan to give every new born baby a $5,000 savings bond.
Curiously, 65% of whites opposed the baby bond idea. 52% of minorities favored the baby bond idea. Well --- maybe that's not so curious but I don't want to step on any ethnic toes here, do I?
Now that this poll is out there, let's see if Hillary Rodham ever mentions her baby bonus idea again. If not, she'll certainly come up with some other grand income redistribution scheme.
She’s already reaped a benefit. Socialists, minorities and people who support giving money away to the “poor”, like the cut of Hillarys “jib”. She’s at least proposing all the right things. Most are too stupid to realize that this idea NEVER would’ve come to fruition. Like ALL liberal ideas, it’s designed to make everyone feel better.
It could replace social security if placed in an stock fund returning an average of 9%. You would have 1.6 million at retirement at age 67.
I’m not sure, there are a lot of lousy liberal ideas that have come to fruition.
Good way to prove who likes government handouts at any expense to the taxpayer.
Yes, the children of illegals will be eligible. Remember, under our stupid interpretation of the 14th Amendment, babies of illegals are automatic citizens.
Instead of this tripe what about working to get gangs out of inner city neighborhoods and insuring the rights of children to be safe in, and while going to and from school? Hillary is a socialist. She is not much different from Chavez, and I truly believe that if she could get away with some of what he’s done she would be very, very tempted to do the same.
I know white people that would support this too. They like freebies . Most don’t pay much in taxes and see it as coming from the government instead of tax payers.
This woman is on an income-redistribution roll. However, I notice that historically she wants to pad her own bank account. She’ll be dangerous if she ever controls the national checkbook.
I think I overheard some people talking about going to see Baby Bond perform at the local strip joint.
That’s nice - but we’re liberals, so “the people” don’t matter.
Now pay your taxes we need a raise...
To show you how cynical I've become.....
My first thought when I heard this was "what happens if the child dies before 18?" Wonder if this would lead to a rash of "accidents".
Yup. And the ignorant masses will only remember her proposal, and that the (evil, bigoted, mostly white male) Republicans said "No".
It has always been a crime to offer money for someones vote has it not?
If this offer of $5000 per child had been made on the Senate Floor it would have been protected speech.
If this offer was made on the Campaign Trail as a part of an effort to gain votes and be elected..
Could someone (maybe a FR attorney) please explain
Why it is not a criminal offense?
