Clinton: Shared Prosperity Should Replace 'On Your Own' Society

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it's time to replace an "on your own" society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an ownership society really is an "on your own" society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

"I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."

By manipulating the power of their positions of trust.

In the hands of bureaucratic bumblers it is easier
For their skillful skimming inclination
To be exercised upon the people.

I enjoy reading your political opinions. Doesn't she do a good job dressing around her features? Her hair is much better now and she has introduced pants into Congress -- probably more to cover up her fat ankles than to make a feminist statement but hey -- other women are following suit.

My dad thinks Fred Thompson will be the next President. He's from the Panhandle, ya know. Me? I think the Bush/Clinton dynasty has a lot of powerful hitters behind it. More to keep the secrets all locked up?

What Hillary wants is socialism. I remember some rough times when I was a child In the Texas Panhandle.My parents both had jobs, and my sisters and I cleaned the house,washed, starched and hung out clothes,Then we sprinkled the clothes down and ironed them.We chopped cotton pulled bowls too. Wee were all in it together too! But we worked hard and didn't complain.For some reason, we thought that was part of life. That my friend was In the good ole days...

Oh sure... great as long as they don't touch their millions. I can just see Hillary and John Edwards et al sharing their wealth with the poor. Never gonna happen.
