I need some real help trying to understand this one. O.K., so Hillary is going around everywhere talking about the need for affordable health care for ALL Americans...ain't got no problem with that! In fact, I heard her talking with a man who had recently lost a loved one because of the lack of health care. It was a heart-wrenching story and of course, the Senator was both teary and somber...got a problem with that!
Here's why! Apart from this news bite appearing to be a hypocritical photo-op, I was blinded by the recent reports permeating the media that Clinton has not paid the health insurance premiums for her team for the last two months! According to one article: During the first two months of the year, the campaign did not pay down any of that debt. In fact, it accrued another $16,000 in unpaid bills last month, and it finished the month owing Aetna $229,000.
Now, I heard somewhere (tic) that the Clintons made over 100 million dollars since 2000. And I also heard the Senator say that she "has nothing against rich people" - guess not since she is one. But, here's my issue/question: if she could afford to loan her campaign 5 mil a couple of months ago CAN'T she afford to pay the 229K in health insurance benefits for her staff - not to mention the other 16K owed to vendors. Seems to me that she's got her priorities mixed. Guess she's feeling the recession, too.
All this - and more - make me wonder just what she meant by "he [Obama] can't win!". Did she really mean that Obama can't beat McCain and she can or how dare Obama take away her birth-right? You know what I think...what about you?
Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner('s Place) ain't got nothing more to say.
