As we all know by now, Governor Bill Richardson spent yesterday watching the Super Bowl at his mansion with former President Bill Clinton. Now, he may not have officially endorsed Hillary Clinton, but that’s called sending out a strong message.
Expect the Governor’s endorsement of Senator Clinton to come sometime before Wednesday. My only hope is that he doesn’t pick up ANOTHER page from Hillary’s playbook when it comes to universal healthcare:
Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to garnish the wages of workers who refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.
Ouch, “garnish the wages of workers” Isn’t garnishing wages something we do to deadbeat dads and other people who fail to pay their debts? I’m sure that’s going to go over well with the voters.
Can you imagine? You’re working at a minimum wage job, maybe two, to make ends meet and President Hillary Clinton wants to garnish your wages to ensure you have health insurance. Yeah, that’s brilliant health care policy. Clinton and Richardson are made for each other.
As a comical aside, how did these two great proponents of universal health care, former President Clinton and Governor Richardson, while away the time with the big game on the screen:
Political questions were off-limits as Clinton and Richardson sat glued to the television in a room that smelled of cigars, a table holding sandwiches and fresh fruit at arm’s length.
Now, I like a good cigar as much as the next guy, but then again, I’m not asking that everyone be lumped into the same insurance pool as me.
