Let’s suppose you have a job. Not hard to imagine for most of us. Let’s also suppose that your employer offers healthcare insurance. You look over your options… choose Plan A with a monthly premium of $262 and a certain deductible… or maybe Plan B with a lower premium and a higher deductible. Maybe neither of the plans are as good as the family plan offered by your spouse’s company. You choose to opt out and be covered elsewhere. Or maybe you decide that you don’t need insurance at this point and prefer to let that $3144 go into your direct deposit. That’s your choice.
Until Hillary is elected.
Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to garnish the wages of workers who refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.
The New York senator has criticized presidential rival Barack Obama for pushing a health plan that would not require universal coverage. Clinton has not always specified the enforcement measures she would embrace, but when pressed on ABC’s “This Week,” she said: “I think there are a number of mechanisms” that are possible, including “going after people’s wages, automatic enrollment.”
Hillary’s plan is to make health care a government operated and controlled function. Your hospital or clinic will soon operate exactly the same as your local DMV office. Think about it.
