Skip to comments.Clinton health plan may mean tapping pay
Posted on 02/03/2008 8:52:55 AM PST by Berlin_Freeper
Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to garnish the wages of workers who refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.
The New York senator has criticized presidential rival Barack Obama for pushing a health plan that would not require universal coverage. Clinton has not always specified the enforcement measures she would embrace, but when pressed on ABC's "This Week," she said: "I think there are a number of mechanisms" that are possible, including "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment."

To see how liberals push their morality on others, just look at the deductions on your paycheck.
Scary ideas this candidate has.
First, they will need to seize your 2nd amendment rights so that when they take your money, you can’t fight back. How socialist of the thighbeast....
The issue here is that the liberals equate health insurance with health care. Anyone can go into a doctor’s office and pay for the services directly, without having any insurance.
It might be interesting to see how much $$ is being given to the Democrats by companies that sell health insurance.
I wonder what draconian measures she envisions when the entire country boycotts the $ economy.
Note to the nation's voters: Can't say you weren't warned...
I think this commie just stepped on her ....well, lets say she said too much for her own good. This is raw meat.
Communism, plain and direct.
Never for a moment did I believe it would not cut in to pay.
How’s her Heinous going to “garnish” the wages of legal and illegal immigrants who work off the books? Of course she won’t touch them
Hillie'll be all for a wall in that case.
To keep the citizenry in...
If you are going to post crap like this at least get her party affiliation correct. She is a Socialist! as in one of those people who aspire to take things away from you for your own good!
An old Man
She’s starting to sound like Romney.
Even Democrats won't want their wages garnered.
If anyone had any doubt that Hillarycare was a NEW entitlement program, this statement just erased it.
Enough of my income is confiscated for feel good programs.
I will be damned if Hillary is going to confiscate anything from me without a fight. I have the right to refuse fiscally irresponsible mandates that harm my freedom to choose.
This Hillary Hag is nothing but a drag.
McCain just can't be trusted to hold steady when the political winds are against him. How can anyone think Washington knows how to spend my money better than I do? The GOP can't even hold its own in line on something as fundamental as a tax cut. I am so disappointed in the GOP lately, and I don't think I'm alone. The GOP better wake up quick lest they find us bailing out in droves.
I have no desire to be “tapped” by Hillary Clinton in any sense of the word.
Looks like Hillary wants to adopt RomneyCare!
Hitlery is an evil, sinister, corrupt candidate; a sick joke and beyond scary as are all the others, IMO. Our country is circling the drain thanks to Liberals, RINOs, and the media and Americans are sleeping cluelessly through it. I never, never, never thought we would throw away our future and never get to this point in my lifetime. In my opinion, no one running for the Presidency will take this nation anywhere but the toilet bowl.
I shouldn't be surprised. It's no different than what Juan McCain has in store for us with his amnesty plan for illegals.
Exactly. This observation suggests that we should work toward harmonizing the laws in Mexico and here, so that migration of people and businesses is simple and above board. It cannot just be that Mexicans migrate here, but we do not migrate there.
Until he gets into office. Then things, circumstances will 'change'. We have to remember that Obamamama is just as radically left as Hitlery, regardless of what he saying on the stump.
And this is different from what Romney already has done how?
Guess my tagline needs updating:
Hillary Care means stealing your money so you can die in line.
She will garnish student’s meagre pay to fund free abortions...
Good point. Have to remember that little fact. NO ONE has ever moved to the right after they won the White House. They talk a good game right up to the second they take the oath of office.
I want this woman to go away. Just go away.
And having no disposable income while you do so.
How is she going to garnish the wages of the illegal aliens that Hitlary would be willing to let stay in this country? Oh, silly me, they’ll just take an extra 5% out of everyone who lives here legally.
Yep, this will cost her the election.
This is a good thing. It means Hillary is becoming more like the Republicans! (Democrats moving to the left to be more like Republicans on some issues alert)
I would suggest she go tapping in a bathroom stall instead. She'll find it more satisfying.
I can’t post my actual sentiment in regard to Hillary and her idea. I’d be suspended.
Trouble is, Obama wants to control how much everyone can earn in the first place--which is worse?:
Closing Income Gap Tops Obamas Agenda for Economic Change
Sounds awfully similar to Romneycare to me.
But then again, I’ve been told the past few weeks that there are no differences between McCain and Hillary. Of course when it comes to garnishing people’s wages to pay for health care for all, Hillary is proposing doing just that. I know McCain wouldn’t take YOUR money to pay for someone else’s health care.
So much for “pro-choice”.
She said: “I think there are a number of mechanisms” that are possible, including “going after people’s wages, automatic enrollment.”
Yep, there it is, folks...a socialist answer from a true socialist. In the mind of the Hildebeast, what’s yours is the government’s, for whatever purpose she sees as appropriate.
This woman is dangerous. She must be stopped.
People were more than adequately warned about these people in 1992 and elected them president not once, but twice.
The fact that Hillary Clinton is not only a candidate for president but has actually gotten votes should be enough for all of us to seriously consider that we may not have a republic much longer.
If the Repubs nominate a conservative at their convention, I'm there. If they nominate a socialist, as it appears they are preparing to do, no thanks.
(quoted from another thread)
I agree, Obama is more frightening; however, in terms of headlines, this one is devastating for Hillary.
It would be nice if a few of you that paid your way would let us know.
Puts me in mind of this quote....
The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Works for the Executive Branch, too.
Well, let's be honest, With Hillary's plan abortion would be free. Romney's is the more conservative requiring a $50 copay.
Naw. The people she panders to love that kind of talk. Further, I have talked to conservatives so brainwashed that they believe they need to be taxed more. Incredible.
