Hillary's Hoodwink

I finally understand why Hillary Clinton is obsessed with health insurance mandates. As a blog over at the Baltimore Sun is reporting, the Clinton campaign failed to pay its health insurance premiums for months, racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt to its providers.

The deadbeat campaign is nearly $9 million in debt. It's left a string of unpaid bills all over the country, from Ohio to Iowa. This has put a real-world hurt on the small businesses her campaign has hoodwinked.

When Clinton drops out, does she intend to pay off these campaign debts? Or should these business owners also pay a price for her continuing vanity campaign? Is this the kind of fiscal responsibility you'd get in a Hillary Clinton White House?

She'd pass a law to force you to buy health insurance. Yet she won't pay any of her own bills.
