Democratic Party

Christmas Comes Early For McCain

Senator Clinton on making sure everyone buys health insurance:

"I think there are a number of mechanisms" that are possible, including "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment."

Whether or not you support single-payer or some form of the Clinton plan, this was a dumb thing to say -- not that I'm knocking Clinton or anything. After all, there's nothing to knock about this -- it's just that a Democratic candidate has put WAGE-GARNISHING ON THE TABLE. Dammit. But I'm not knocking her! No sir. Maybe the Republican frontrunner, who is presently leading Senator Clinton in the polls, will ignore the fact that she said this. Maybe there won't be GOP commercials with this quote around the clock for months on end. And therefore maybe we won't have to defend this statement throughout the goddamn general election if she wins the nomination. Good job, Senator Clinton!
