Hustings helper: There’s political pandering – and then there’s presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail. During a recent forum hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus, Sen. Clinton suggested that every child born in the United States should get a $5,000 “baby bond” from the government to help out with college or house-buying.
The economic implications, of course, are staggering given that 4 million babies are born each year in the U.S. That’s $20 billion right there.
The sociological implications underscore an entitlement culture.
And the political implications include waving another red flag for illegal immigrants heading north. (Non-Cuban) Hispanic voters are the Democratic Party’s fastest-growing constituency.
