Is there anything she doesn’t want to spend our money on?

Hillary: “I Have A Million Ideas. The Country Can’t Afford Them All.” (Marcella Bombardieri, “Clinton Vows To Check Executive Power,” The Boston Globe, 10/11/07)

Ya think?

Guess not.

What about the Social Security crisis?

Sen. Clinton: “Social Security is a problem, but it’s not in my top five …” (Thomas M. DeFrank, “Party Gotta Fight Back, Sez Hillary,” [New York] Daily News, 4/12/05)


Sen. Clinton: “The so-called ‘crisis’ in Social Security does not exist. We do face two crises, in my opinion. We face the fiscal debt/economic crisis and we face a crisis in the funding of Medicare and health care. But Social Security is a problem we can deal with if we do so honestly.” (Sen. Hillary Clinton, Remarks At Brandeis University’s Rabb Seminar, 1/23/05)

When pressed:

Hillary’s Booming Crisis

Hillary Has Privately Hinted She’d Raise Taxes To Fund Social Security Solvency:


Hillary Privately Told An Iowa Voter She’s Considering Lifting The Income Cap For Social Security Taxes. “Hillary Rodham Clinton has given a private clue on an issue she has refused to discuss publicly how to preserve Social Security in the long term. The Democratic presidential contender told an Iowa voter she would be willing to consider an idea that her Democratic rival John Edwards has been promoting raising Social Security taxes on high-income earners. … She told him she didn’t want to put an additional tax burden on the middle class but would consider a ‘gap,’ with no Social Security taxes on income from $97,500 to around $200,000. Anything above that could be taxed.” (Nedra Pickler, “Clinton Weighs Social Security Tax ‘Gap,'” The Associated Press, 10/12/07)

How did hubby Bill handle the issue?

In 1993, President Clinton Increased The Portion Of Taxable Social Security Benefits To A Staggering 85%; Raising Taxes On Seniors Earning Barely More Than $34,000 Per Year. “[P]resident Bill Clinton’s 1993 tax increase … hiked taxes on Social Security benefits for seniors. … Prior to 1993, seniors paid taxes on half their Social Security benefits if their combined income exceeded $25,000 for individuals or $32,000 for couples. But in 1993, the portion of taxable Social Security benefits increased to 85%, as individuals with incomes above $34,000 and couples with incomes above $44,000 became subject to the higher rate of taxation.” (Americans For Tax Reform Website, http://www.atr.org, Accessed 9/19/07)

Hillary follows suite:

Sen. Hillary Clinton Has Voted At Least Twice Against Repealing Her Husband’s 1993 Tax Increase On Social Security Benefits. (S. Con. Res. 18, CQ Vote #74: Adopted 55-45: R 50-5; D 5-39; I 0-1, 3/17/05, Clinton Voted Nay; S. Con. Res. 23, CQ Vote #94: Rejected 48-51: R 48-3; D 0-47; I 0-1, 3/25/03, Clinton Voted Nay)

We need Hillary as president as much as a swift kick to the head.

Not so much.

    Hillary Clinton is a tax and spend liberal. She has no sense of fiscal responsibility, and is running on her husband’s record who only balanced a budget because he had Newt Gingrich and the Republican Revolution to make sure that he did. America needs someone like Daniel Imperatoto lead this country. Not Hillary Clinton.

  2. Is this gonna Kill You? No i Dont Think so !
