Hillary Garnishing Wages to Pay For Health Care And MoveOn.Org Endorses Obama

Clinton May Garnish Wages to Achieve Universal Health Care


Will Sen. Hillary Clinton garnish the wages of people who can afford health insurance but refuse to buy into her universal health care plan? Maybe.

The Democratic presidential hopeful tried to duck the question Sunday, when ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked her about wage-garnishing three times. But she didn't rule it out.

Clinton on Sunday described universal health care as "a core Democratic value and a moral principle, and I'm absolutely going to do everything I can to achieve that."

The campaign of Sen. Barack Obama is warning voters that Clinton's plan forces everyone to buy insurance, even if they can't afford it. "And if they cannot afford it, then the question is what are you going to do about it? Are you going to fine them? Are you going to garnish their wages?" Obama asked Clinton at one of their debates.

Clinton, pressed on the issue Sunday during her appearance on ABC's "This Week," said people will be able to afford her plan because she would limit premiums to a "low percent of your income."



According to Clinton, "about 20 percent of the people who don't have health insurance in America today could well afford it," despite its "exorbitant" cost. "So what we've got to do is have shared responsibility. Everybody has to pay something, but, obviously, on a sliding scale."

Stephanopoulos tried again: "And I still haven't heard, if people can afford it and they don't buy the insurance, will their wages be garnished under your plan? Will they have to pay fines?"

Clinton told Stephanopoulos "there are a number of ways" of getting people to enroll in her universal health care plan. "I think you can automatically enroll people, and you will then say you've got to be part of this."

She added that Congress is sure to "have some ideas" about it as well. "But if you don't start with universal health care, if you don't say everybody's going to be in the system, we'll never get there," Clinton said.

Pressed a third time on the wage-garnishing question, Clinton said, "we will have an enforcement mechanism -- whether it's that (wage garnishing) or it's some other mechanism through the tax system or automatic enrollments."

Clinton said the "key point" is to implement universal health care. She said the mechanism by which it is achieved -- "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment...whatever the mechanism is, is not as important as...the fundamental commitment to universal health care..."

Clinton insisted that she will not force people to buy health insurance they can't afford: "There will be mechanisms to enable everyone to afford it. We have costed this out, and we will be able to achieve it," she insisted.

Iran and Syria

In her appearance on "This Week," Clinton also clarified whether she would meet with the leaders of Iran and Syria if she's elected president.

"I've been a longtime advocate of having diplomatic processes with Iran and Syria," Clinton said. She called it "imperative" for the United States to have direct contact with Iran and Syria.

"But it would be at low-level diplomatic efforts, between our ambassadors and between our diplomats, because I don't think a president should put the prestige of the United States on the line to meet with these people unless you have some idea of what is going to happen."

Hillary herself is a nightmare, Marie! If elected she will be a dictator, as proven with this Health Care plan of hers. She will force people to get health care one way or another. Freedom of the people means nothing to her or her ilk! We also know where she will get the funds for it.

And when Obama confronted her with the garnishmets Clinton denied having made any such suggestion. Even on the George Snuffleuppagus program, she said the health program was totally voluntary without any penalty for non-participation. However, everyone would be required to have health insurance and paychecks would be garnished to guarantee compliance.

That's all very confusing and I'm not making it up. That's how she tried to explain it.

Having Hillary Clinton as President would be interesting in only one way -

George Washington was the President who couldn't tell a lie.

Bill Clinton was the President who couldn't tell the truth.

Hillary Clinton would be the President who couldn't tell the difference.

But my wages are already garnished to pay for health care, are you saying yours arent? They are one way or another. Either you pay for it yourself, leaving less income, you split it with your employeer and you pay some and get paid less in order for the employeer to contribute or your employer pays it all and as a result, pays you less in salary.

Or you are like most red states and on Medicare or Medicade anyway.
