Healthcare

Clinton knows health care πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

More pandering. You deserve; full time work in poverty? Hey, that’s Old Bernie’s line (even though full-time even at minimum wage exceeds the so-called poverty level). 

Yikes Hillary, where were you when they were talking about the benefits of high deductible health plans and health savings accounts?  According to the IRS, a HDHP must have a deductible of at least $2,600. For an average family earning $50,000 you just invalidated the purpose of the law. πŸ˜•

If you are “wealthy” – never defined in advance- hang on to your wallet; so far you will be paying for free college for all, higher Social Security benefits, fixing the Social Security system,  $15.00 minimum wage and now the health care deductible for every family in America. 

If you are a drug company; tough. It’s your turn to be the new bad. πŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠJust suck it up. Last election cycle it was insurance companies, or was it the 1% and Wall Street and banks? You are the left’s scapegoat. 😷

“You deserve a pay increase, not a tax increase,” she said Friday at a campaign event in Memphis. “Nobody who works full-time in America deserves to live in poverty.”

Clinton, who was in the midst of a campaign swing through the South, has tried to create a wedge on taxes with her main rival for the nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.


In Memphis, she touted a tax refundable tax credit of up to $5,000 for families and $2,500 for individuals she proposed earlier this year. Americans with out-of-pocket health care expenses exceeding 5 percent of their income would be eligible for the refund. Her campaign says the tax cut will be funded through tax increases on wealthy families and by “demanding” rebates from drug manufactures. Deseret News via AP 11-20-15

  1. Yes, the “wealthy” are usually not well defined. A recent letter to the editor in our local newspaper featured a woman complaining that she needed a cost of living increase on her social security payment. She said the rich “needed to pay more” and she should receive more. Turns out she lives in a half a million dollar house (more than twice the state median) on the Hood Canal and her husband is a retired CPA, a occupation not known for its poverty salaries.
