AMERICANS SAY TO NO BABY BOND
Nealz Nuze/WSB Radio ^ | October 2, 2007 | Neal Boortz

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.

I'm betting no. It's down the memory hole. If some media schnook ever asked about it, she might dismiss it as "just a thought".

But they won't.

The Libtard socialist bimbo will do anything. She is a vote whore deluxe. She never once thought about the total cost or even who would pay for it. No.....she did think of who would pay for it. More taxes.....on all of us.

I say give them the $5000 bond only they’ve proved that they didn’t waste the $80,000 already given them for a 12-year public education.

Congratulations for being born. Here's your $5000 bond and your $30,000 bill for your share of the national debt. Get working kid, the interest bill for your part of the debt is due.

This can’t be serious ...

... even she would have to know that this baby is simply taking out a loan from itself, to be paid back in the form of Federal Taxes when both the baby and bond mature.

Will the children of Illegals qualify for the $5,000 too?

Can you imagine the rush of pregnant women trying to get to the border to get their $5,000 check?

Well, this is at least the SECOND trial run she has made on controlling our youth (cradle-to-grave power socialist). She tried a more frontal attack back when “hubby” was porking interns. She and some senator (cannot remember his name) tried to put together legislation that would give the government abosolute control over the destiny of your child (professionally, career, what he/she would do) in high school based on scholastic standards -— basically taking over control of the life of your child.

This pinko, power-mad witch is a HARD MARXIST. Let no one tell you otherwise. And you thought ANIMAL FARM and Orwell’s 1984 were bad??? A Clockwork Orange, too???

Here is the first post I could find about it.

Where does she come up with these things?

She has a Panderama® machine.

She’ll just repackage and resell it at a later date.

Instead of calling it a baby bond, it will be a “healthcare investment.”

The 40% toe suckers who favor it will be in Hillary's corner next November. That's her voting base.

"Can you imagine the rush"....

My thoughts exactly. Talk about a Mex Magnet. Just the mere talk of it will have another 30 million heading this way....

I am disappointed, thought the headline had something to do with a new Hollywood molesting perverted child porn James Bond.

Now, if this was a $5000 non-refundable tax credit, I could see some support for it. My feeling is that she’s trying to get that 10% of black votes that doesn’t currently go to the Democratic party.

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.

What an ingenious way to increase our number of Anchor Babies. We won’t be able to stem the tide of PG illegals from waddling across our southward border. There may also be an influx of ladies from the Maple Leaf country also. A great big Charlie Brown type carrot.

The really scary thing about this poll is that that 40% of likely voters approve Hillary's plan to give every new born baby a $5,000 savings bond.

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.

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?
