Clinton Wants to Give All New Babies $5,000

A relaxed and confident Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, seeking to tighten her grip on her sizeable share of the prospective black vote, spoke on a range of issues before a receptive audience Friday at the annual legislative conference of the Congressional Black Caucus.

“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 down payment on their first home,” she said.

Maybe when the little tykes graduate from the third grade, we can give them $10,000! I wonder if Hillary would consider making this retro-active as I could use an extra five grand about now.

Aside from the sheer stupidity of this idea, I am even more incensed by her insult to the intelligence of the average American. And bringing forth this idea before the Congressional Black Caucus is even more offensive. How about stay in school, get a job, work hard, don’t have children before you’re married, and then buy your own house. Too hard, I guess.
