Clinton didn't pay health insurance bills By: Kenneth P. Vogel March 31, 2008 10:53 AM EST

Among the debts reported this month by Hillary Clinton’s struggling presidential campaign, the $292,000 in unpaid health insurance premiums for her campaign staff stands out.

Clinton, who is being pressured to end her campaign against Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination, has made her plan for universal health care a centerpiece of her agenda.

The campaign provides health insurance to all its employees, their spouses, partners and children – and that wasn’t interrupted by any lag in payments to insurance providers, said Jay Carson, a Clinton campaign spokesman.

He said the campaign this month paid off all outstanding bills to Aetna Healthcare and CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield. Those payments will be reflected on a report the campaign will file this month with the Federal Election Commission, which Carson said will show “zero debt owed to both vendors.”

“Sometimes invoices are not paid immediately because we need additional information for our records, or to verify expenses,” Carson said in a statement emailed to Politico. “Sometimes invoices arrive at the very end of the month at the cut-off of the reporting period, which means that we are required to report them as a debt on the current FEC report, even where they are paid in regular course during the next month.”

I’m sure she did this on purpose, just to make a point.

Funny, when I don’t pay insurance on the due date they CANCEL my policies.

Anybody, person or business, that doesn’t get money-in-front from a campaign is either stupid or making a tacit campaign contribution. Imagine if the campaign missed a M-I-F premium payment and cancellation notices were made public. Hoo boy!

If Aetna did that, Hillary would bark about it for a week.

Hope that health coverage includes suicide, because I predict a whole bunch of Clinton Koolaid drinkers jumping outta windows when Senator Beeotch fails to get the ‘Rat nomination.

The Politico notably doesn't seem to have the same enthusiasm for digging dirt on Obama as it does on Hillary.

IF ONLY her socialized health care program had been written...and passed...we TAXPAYERS could have paid for Hillary's staffers' health care!

Typical of elite liberals. Say one thing and do the opposite when it comes to their money instead of our taxes.

I'm sure that's just the "inner circle" types of staffers...the "volunteers" probably don't get a thing.

Aren’t insurance premiums normally required to be prepaid?

Hell, I’m not bored enough to volunteer for any of these candidates. They’d have to pay me. May even have to buy my vote.

Party rental outfits always get the money up front for fund raisers, at least around here.
