Hillary Clinton never ceases to amaze me with her blatant socialistic views.
This past Friday she passed expectations once again by suggesting at a forum hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus that every child born in this country should receive a $5,000 bond upon birth.
Let's take a close look at her actual statement, "I like the idea of giving every baby born in America a $5,000 account that will grow over time, so that when that young person turns 18 if they have finished high school they will be able to access it to go to college or maybe they will be able to make that downpayment on their first home"
Every baby born in America... not every American citizen baby but every baby born here. Can you see it now? People from all over the world coming here to give birth to get their hands on that $5,000 check taken from yours and my pocket of course.
And what about the total cost? Let's see 4 million babies a year are born into this country... that's 4 million times $5,000 comes out to be $20,000,000,000 every single year. That's $20 BILLION annually this plan would cost this country. So much for saving for retirement!
Let's add to that some discussion about the most recent ad she has running here in NH. Next time it comes on TV listen for this line in particular, "And she changed future generations by pushing the drug companies to lower the cost of vaccinations." What exactly does that mean to you? I'll tell you what it means to me... it means she is forcing companies to charge a low price which lowers their chances to profit from their research. Those who are slow witted cheer because they simply see lower cost drugs, but they miss the big picture. Companies don't develop new drugs because they are kind hearted and want to invest billions of dollars in time and labor just because they have it laying around and want to help. Companies are there to make money for those who work for them and own them. Take away profit and you take away the motivation to develop new drugs.
Canada has already started forcing drug companies to lower their prices and as a result companies have raised the costs here in the US to make up the difference. What do you think will happen when the US likewise forces companies to charge lower costs?
Can this country afford Hillary Clinton?
