Sen. Bob Dutton pulls out of $500 newborns savings accounts bill

Following an appearance on yesterday's John and Ken Show on KFI, Sen. Bob Dutton has dropped his name from Senate Bill 752. That would have given each newborn in California a $500 savings account:

"Over the last 48 hours, thousands of Californians have asked me what I was thinking so I thought I would take this opportunity to share my thoughts."

Indeed. He also references the federal version of the bill and says:

Just yesterday, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke voiced his support for similar accounts by saying "To the extent that we can help people learn about how to save, how to budget, we are doing a great service."


Those who rob Peter to Pay Paul can always count on the vote of Paul.

Isn't it great that there

Can We Say nuts? I think we ( read rat government ) have so much money that the government needs to stop taxing people for 50 years.

How do you create less dependence on government by giving people 500 tax dollars?
