Hillary having a cow

FRIDAY 2-29-08…Hillary Clinton is “having a cow” over some political mailers sent out by the Barack Obama campaign. Those mailers criticize her universal health care plan, which is pretty strange since Hillary’s camp has repeatedly criticized Obama’s health care mailings. I guess it’s okay for Hillary to do it, but not okay for Obama.

In the Obama mailers, he points out that Hillary’s plan would force everyone to purchase insurance, even if they can’t afford it. She even subscribed to the idea of garnishing wages from workers who don’t –or can’t afford–to purchase coverage. Obama’s plan doesn’t include an individual mandate but does require parents to buy insurance to cover their kids.

When one begins to question each candidate’s ideas for solving the health insurance crisis, one needs only to look back during Bill Clinton’s first term as his wife is said to have performed as his “co-president.”

As co-president, she assumed authority over Health Care Reform, which turned out to be a process that cost the taxpayers over thirteen million bucks. She told both Bill Bradley and Pat Moynahan, key votes needed to pass her legislation, that she would demonize anyone who opposed it. But, it was opposed; she couldn’t even get it to a vote in a Congress controlled by her own party.

But now, she’s trying to demonize Obama and his campaign for merely pointing out the differences between his plans and her plans. Personally, I don’t think she’ll be anymore successful in this latest “demonizing” than she was Bradley and Moynahan.
