We Really Can't Afford Hillary

Last week Hillary Clinton said that she has a million ideas, but "The country can't afford them all."

Mrs. Clinton seems determined to prove this, as she announced her latest proposal, $1 billion in grants to states to provide paid family leave.

First the liberals wanted guaranteed family leave, and now, not surprisingly, they want it salaried.

Which means the rest of us are going to pay for others' leaves, rather than saving for our own needs.

She also wants employers mandated to pay for seven sick days per year and increased child care subsidies -- including payments to parents who stay home to care for their own children!

And so her Socialist proposals march on...
