Hillary has lost me

Hillary is off my list.
"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.

Say this much - instead of sucking up to voters with a wink-wink-nudge and entitlements she's all right up front about buying votes.
The New York senator did not offer any estimate of the total cost of such a program or how she would pay for it. Approximately 4 million babies are born each year in the United States.

Assuming a constant birthrate of 4 million babies times $5,000 = $20,000,000,000. Every year. Forever.
