Hillary: "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

While Bubba continues his "rock-star tour" of bookstores across the nation, his wife, the junior Senator from New York, is with him, getting as much face-time as possible.

Yesterday, in San Francisco, while Bill Clinton signed books at the Book Passage bookstore, Hillary Clinton headlined an appearance of woman Senators for US Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), who is up for reelection this year.

The "pant-suited one" told the crowd, who had just ponied up $10,000 a head to attend that the tax cuts of the Bus Administration would be a thing of the past under the Democrats.

"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
Translation? "You don't get to keep your money. I don't know who you think you are that you should in the first place. When we get back in power, we're gonna take that back from you, so don't get used to it."

Just damn.

Well, we all know that's what the left wants to do, but I'm absolutely shocked that one of them came out and said it openly. Now we just have to make sure that this story isn't simply buried or glossed over by the old media.

Beware of anyone taking away anything of yours "on behalf of the common good"

If that photo of Hillary doesn't SCREAM for a caption contest, I don't know what does!

Who gets to decide what is in the 'common good'?

Hillary Lenin-Clinton? I don't think so.

Don't let any American voter forget this.
