Candidates say the darndest things.
If Hillary Clinton is elected president, she'd like the government to give a $5000 "baby bond" to every child born in the U.S. to help pay for college or for buying a home.
According to the article, 4 million children are born here every year.
That's $20,000,000,000. Each year.
Compliments of all us babies who had to make money the old-fashioned way by earning it. And we still haven't figured out how the hell we're going to cover Social Security benefits beyond 2017.
I'm all for helping out people who really need it. But $5,000 just for being born?
The United States has always been the place where you could start with nothing and if you work hard and make good decisions, you could have everything.
But in Hillary's world, nobody starts with nothing any more.
How depressing is that?
