Clinton retirement plan rests on rich

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., on Tuesday proposed a new multibillion-dollar retirement plan -- billed as a universal 401(k) plan with federal matching funds -- to supplement Social Security for middle-class workers. The accounts would cost the Treasury $20 billion to $25 billion a year, the second-most-expensive initiative Clinton has rolled out in her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Her plan for universal health care would cost more than $100 billion a year. ''I am not proposing anything I don't have a way to pay for,'' she said.

House Approves Voucher Plan

The Florida House of Representatives approved a proposal by two Miami lawmakers Thursday that would offer $3,000 vouchers for private school tuition to students attending overcrowded public schools. But two days of sound and fury about whether Republicans or Democrats care more for "the children" leading up to the 63-54 vote, mostly along party lines, signified next to nothing: Its companion bill is already all but dead in the Senate Education Committee at the hands of chairman Ken Pruitt, R-Port St. Lucie.
