Are you serious?

Hillary Clinton might be willing to garnish the wages of individuals who refuse to buy health insurance.

Making sure everyone is covered is NOT the government’s job.

In other “are you serious” news, John McCain has declared he would veto any tax increases, including a repeal of the current tax cuts. Tax cuts that he voted against. Twice. McCain is saying whatever is necessary to win the Republican nomination.

For some of our elder-readers, has there ever been an election where both parties’ front runners are equally as capable of ruining our country?

See the full story here.

Happy Monday everyone.

    Looks like the opportunity is there for Ron Paul to make it happen.

    I am wholly uninspired by anyone in this political landscape.
    I’m thinking about writing in Todd Ramsey as my presidential nominee. Hope you can handle it…

    To be fair, things like this are hardly unprecedented. Your wages are garnished as a part of the Social Security program (something I’m sure you aren’t a huge fan of), so the “confiscatory” (to use a libertarian buzzword) aspect is hardly the issue. Whether or not the government ought to be in the business of seeing to universal coverage is certainly fair for questioning. From a philosophical perspective, I don’t really like the concept of mandates, but I think the loss of liberty (to continue the libertarian parlance) can be justified by the benefit. I’m sure you beg to differ.

    As to St. McCain, thanks for noticing. Its about time that people start figuring out that he is no different than anybody else running for president (legitimately).

    Kolby, you are correct in your assumption that I differ. This is merely an expansion of government that I do not support. At least Obama’s health care plan doesn’t currently involve any garnishments.

    Do you support McCain’s nomination because he is liberal on everything but the war or do you oppose it because he is more likely to win over moderate and undecided voters?
