Clinton unveils new healthcare plan

Clinton unveils new healthcare plan and we the taxpayers are going to be left holding the bill once again for government largess.


AP Interview: Clinton on health care

By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press WriterTue Sep 18, 12:59 PM ET

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday that a mandate requiring
every American to purchase health insurance was the only way to achieve
universal health care but she rejected the notion of punitive measures
to force individuals into the health care system.

Are you reading this people a MANDATE which has the federal government telling you that YOU MUST COMPLY with this order similar to strapping children in the backseat, seatbelts, auto insurance and a host of other government nannisms.

"At this point, we don't have anything punitive that we have proposed,"
the presidential candidate said in an interview with The Associated
Press. "We're providing incentives and tax credits which we think will
be very attractive to the vast majority of Americans."

It is quite suspicious that in one article she is going to end the Bush taxcuts which have "trickled down" to even those that only earn 30K a year.
What Hillary or any of the democrats won't tell you is that 50% of wage earners pay 96.70% of all taxes. There is NO free lunch in America since someone, somewhere is paying for it. I along with thousands of small business owners are quite tired of shouldering the burden since we haven't the subsidies of large corporations, nor do we have a lobbying arm in Washington DC which will lobby congress critters for tax incentives to make the cost of us doing business beneficial for us. We also won't get bailed out in times of economic troubles, its sink or swim for us.

The solution to this problem is quite evident in the private sector of which needs NO federal government solution. Many will proclaim the "general welfare" clause in the preamble of the Constitution allows for this, generally I refer to these people as socialist since the federal government hasn't this authority. Many people that have read the Constitution seem to understand there is no implied meaning of the phrase "promoting the general welfare" in terms of one payer health care system.

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition.” —Thomas Jefferson
