Today in the news Scary Clinton said: "I like the idea of giving every baby born in America a $5,000 account that will grow over time, so that when that young person turns 18 if they have finished high school they will be able to access it to go to college or maybe they will be able to make that downpayment on their first home," she said.
It is her plan for everyone in the US to become a welfare recipient. The problem is, if everyone is relying on the government for a hand out who pays for the handouts.
It is not the job of the government to pay for a down payment on a house, or even to give each and every child access to college. Who is going to decide what this money is used for. There are millions of kids that will never go to college or (even with the $5K) have the ability to own a house. Then are they allowed to use that money for cigarettes and beer.
Clinton makes these "stupid" statements to attract the uneducated voter. The voter who is looking for the government to support them.
