WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that every child born in the United States should get a $5,000 "baby bond" from the government to help pay for future costs of college or buying a home.
Clinton, her party's front-runner in the 2008 race, made the suggestion during a forum hosted by 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 downpayment on their first home," she said.
The New York senator did not offer any estimate of the total cost of such a program or how she would pay for it. Approximately 4 million babies are born each year in the United States.
Oh -- and the DIMocrats are going to nominate her.
Hey -- Hillary -- since your "Universal Health Care" includes illegal aliens, does the $5,000 go for their little "Anchor Babies" too? ... YOU DUMB SNATCH!!!!
Tell ya what -- I'll go for it if you give me the $5000 plus interest from the day I turned 18 -- DEAL? Hell -- let's just all go for self-interest and fuck the country -- just like ALL the libs ... right, HILLARY??
