Will Hillary Clinton as president tap into workers’ wages to achieve her goal of health insurance for all Americans?
The possibility exists as the candidate was pressed on the matter during a television interview today.
Speaking on ABC’s “This Week” program, the Democratic senator from New York said she might be willing to have wages garnisheed if people refuse to buy health insurance.
“I think universal health care is a core Democratic value and a moral principle, and I’m absolutely gonna do everything I can to achieve that,” Clinton said. “I think there are a number of mechanisms” possible, including “going after people’s wages, automatic enrollment.”
Clinton said such measures would apply only to workers who can afford coverage but refuse to purchase it, increasing the financial pressure on hospitals. She indicated her plan “will be affordable for everyone” because she’d limit premium payments “to a low percent of your income.”

Obama Defends Driver’s Licenses for Illegals in Interview with ABC News
February 02, 2008 1:57 PM
ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told ABC’s David Muir Saturday that his support for driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants will not block his path to the White House because he and G.O.P. frontrunner John McCain share substantial overlap on immigration.
“I think they will pounce on any issue that has to do with immigration,” said Obama, referring to Republicans, “but my position has been very similar to John McCain’s, who’s may be the likely Republican nominee, and if he wants to try to parse out this one issue of driver’s licenses, an issue of public safety, my response is that we have to solve the overall problem and this driver’s license issue is a distraction.”
McCain does not support driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants but he shares Obama’s support for giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship without requiring them to leave the United States.
Obama defended his stance on driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants on the same day that La Opinion, the nation’s largest Spanish language newspaper, cited his support for licenses — and Sen. Hillary Clinton’s, D-N.Y., opposition — in its endorsement of Obama.
“We were disappointed with her calculated opposition to driver’s licenses for the undocumented, which contrasts markedly from the forceful argument in support made by Obama,” wrote La Opinion’s editorial board. “We understand that this is an extremely controversial issue but we believe there is only one right position and it is that of the senator from Illinois.”
