VIDEO: Hillary Clinton: “Something has to be taken away from some people”

Posted by: ST on June 4, 2007 at 8:53 pm

More Socialistic preachings from she who wants to be president:

Transcript (via “dollarsandsense” at YouTube):

“[B]ecause an uninsured person who goes to the hospital is more likely to die than an insured person. i mean, that is a fact. so what do we do? we have to build a political consensus. and that requires people giving up a little bit of their own turf in order to create this common ground. the same with energy. you know, we can’t keep talking about our dependence on foreign oil and the need to deal with global warming and the challenge that it poses to our climate and to god’s creation and just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.”

This was broadcast on CNN tonight as part of a presidential candidates ‘faith forum’ of sorts, as described by CNN:

Special programming note: Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, CNN will serve as the exclusive broadcaster of a presidential candidate forum on faith, values and politics during the Sojourners “Pentecost 2007” conference in Washington, D.C.

The Rev. Jim Wallis of Sojourners, author of the best selling book “God’s Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It,” has invited Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama to share their ideas and proposals about pressing social issues with a special emphasis on poverty.

CNN’s Soledad O’Brien will moderate the event, live from The George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium.

And the conversation continues on Paula Zahn Now at 8 p.m. ET with White House hopefuls Sen. Joe Biden, Gov. Bill Richardson, Sen. Chris Dodd and Rep. Dennis Kucinich. Rev. Jesse Jackson will also participate.

I’d say Hillary has ‘faith’ alright, not in the power of the people but instead the power of the federal government. Because she has a fairly comfortable lead in the polls right now, she clearly feels emboldened to slide in ideas favorable to Socialists under the guise of, of course, ‘helping people.’

    that means something has to be taken away from some people.

    Well said, comrade.

  2. Something has to be taken away from people. I agree. Let’s start with morons like her, who’s lies and soulless existence are predicated on the time tested examples of leeches and ticks. Camera’s and microphones are the TB of TV, for these equivocating socielitists. Take them away!

    Hill-O-Beans will take my money when she pries my cold…dead…fingers from it.


  4. Leslie says:

    This is interesting. The Senator from New York manages to convince the right that she’s a liberal, just as her husband did. But while her husband also managed to convince the liberals that he was a liberal, she seems unable to do so.

    And by the way: if there are stats out there showing that uninsured patients are more likely to die in hospitals than the insured, I’d like to see them. My suspicion is (and this is, of course, deplorable but hardly the fault of the hospital) that the poor, as is usual, get the short end of the stick.


  5. Severian says:

    I suspect, Leslie, that the poor die at a higher rate regardless of insurance. For one thing, they are not likely to pay as much attention to their health, and get treatment in time, and tend to live in more violent neighborhoods. Most of this is a result of the mentality and actions that made and keep them poor in the first place. I’d be willing to bet poor, uninsured people that die in the hospital have a lot higher percentage of deaths from violence, beatings, gunshots, stabbings, etc. than the general population.

    Again, if true, and nothing Hillary says is subject to much credulity, it’s using slanted statistics.

  6. Tango says:

    So we’re up to 45 million uninsured now, eh? Shoot, Hillary has no more idea of how many uninsured there are than does my cat! But this is Hillary in her prime, folks! Not a word about how we’re going to continue to sustain (and build on) our excellent economy. With her it’s always TAKE TAKE TAKE TAKE TAKE…. Hillary has little or no understanding of economics and no plans to defend the nation from those who would destroy us. If she gets in, it’ll be a sorry day indeed for the United States. **==

  7. Severian says:

    Hmmm…if that figure is correct Tango, what you want to bet half of them are illegals.

  8. Severian says:

    And typical of her to use the term “45 million.” That sounds so much more serious than “15% of the population.” So, we want to screw the pooch on one of the best medical systems in the world, and grant huge power to government, and spend hundreds of billions for 15% of the population. Yeah, makes lots of sense.
