Hillary's socialist beachhead

Sieg HillarySocialist democracy is not a luxury but an absolute, essential necessity for overthrowing capitalism and building socialism. Ernest Mandel

Yesterday in Iowa, America's crypto-socialist Hillary Clinton announced that she plans to force you to purchase health insurance before you can get a job. "You (will) have to show proof to your employer that you're insured as a part of the job interview...” She doesn't plan punitive measures other than the prospect of unemployment to force you to do comply. Yet. "At this point, we don't have anything punitive that we have proposed," she said in an interview with The A.P.

In a bold move to extend the federal government's control of your life, she plans to force every American to buy health insurance, bribing those who can't afford it with credits and subsidies funded by taxing money away from those who can.

I've built a career that enables me to require my employer to provide health care as part of my compensation. I don't need her plan. I don't deserve to be punished with taxation for planning ahead; nor does any professional; nor does any union member. She claims she wants to “build on the current employer-based system” but this scheme is planned to supplant it entirely. All this will build is American socialism.
