Hillary: Govt Give Each Baby $5k?

"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.

So, why not make Social Security work the same way? Oh, wait, that would be evil and irresponsible. Remember how Hillary and the lefties reacted to Bush's proposal for just that.

Clinton said such an account program would help people get back to the tradition of savings that she remembers as a child." How does giving a person money encourage saving?
