The HWT award for the most Blatent attempt to buy votes goes to

Mrs. Bill Clinton!

WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that every child born in the United States should get a $5,000 "baby bond" from the government to help pay for future costs of college or buying a home.
Clinton, her party's front-runner in the 2008 race, made the suggestion during a forum hosted by the
Congressional Black Caucus.

"I like the idea of giving every baby born in America a $5,000 account that will grow over time, so that when that young person turns 18 if they have finished high school they will be able to access it to go to college or maybe they will be able to make that downpayment on their first home," she said.

The New York senator did not offer any estimate of the total cost of such a program or how she would pay for it. Approximately 4 million babies are born each year in the United States.

This is an attempt to lock up the women's vote with special attention to welfare mothers who will hope that they will be able to get their hands on that 5K well before baby's 18th birthday.

If America elects this woman to be our next president we will deserve everything we get.
