Clinton might garnish wages to socialize health care



Clinton might garnish wages to socialize health care

“Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., this morning left open the possibility that, if elected, her government would garnish the wages of people who didn’t comply* with her health care plan. ‘We will have an enforcement mechanism, whether it’s that or it’s some other mechanism through the tax system or automatic enrollments,’ Clinton said in an appearance on ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos.’ Clinton went on to say, though, that such mechanisms would not include penalties. ‘They don’t have to pay fines … We want them to have insurance. We want it to be affordable. And what I have said is that there are a number of ways of doing that. Now, there’s not just one way of getting to that.’” [editor’s note: Actually, there IS just one way of getting to that. It’s called “the free market” - TLK] (02/03/08)


 *emphasis mine. After 8 yrs of square dancing, we now face goose-stepping.

The free market can work. As I said in konane's blog on the same subject, the reason our premiums are so high is because frivolous lawsuits are allowed to clog up our courts and the sky-high liability insurance premiums of health practitioners, hospitals and drug companies are being passed on to the consumer. Let's fix that first.
