Last Night, Hillary Announced “Something Has To Be Taken Away From Some People”: Asked During The Sojourners Presidential Forum What She Would Do To Achieve “Common Good,” Clinton Responded “Something Has To Be Taken Away From Some People.” Monsignor Kevin Sullivan, Catholic Charities USA: “Senator Clinton, just a very simple question. You have spoken a lot about our need to work for the common good. In an age in which there is, oftentimes, narrow and excessive individualism, how will you speak to our country about the need for sacrifice, restraint, when it comes to the critical issues of taxes, gun control, health care, and energy consumption?” (Sen. Hillary Rodham
Clinton, Remarks At Sojourners Presidential Forum, George Washington University, Washington, DC, 6/4/07)

Clinton: “We have to build a political consensus. And that requires people giving up a little bit of their own turf, in order to create this common ground. … And that means something has to be taken away from some people.” (Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton, Remarks At Sojourners Presidential Forum, George Washington University, Washington, DC, 6/4/07)
