Clinton: ‘It was called HillaryCare before it was called ObamaCare’
The dumpster fire has a new claimant
Democratic presidential frontrunner, Hillary Clinton recently co-opted Obamacare. In spite of her criticisms of President Obama’s hallmark healthcare legislation, Clinton told supporters that the Affordable Care Act, affectionately known as Obamacare, was “HillaryCare” first.
The Hill reported:
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is out with a new defense of her healthcare record — rival Bernie Sanders may have helped write ObamaCare, but it was her idea first.
“It was called HillaryCare before it was called ObamaCare,” Clinton told a crowd of supporters at a country club in Vinton, Iowa. “I don’t want to start over.”
Clinton’s rift with Sanders over healthcare continued to deepen this week. While the Vermont senator stands by his single-payer plan, Clinton has dismissed the idea as politically impractical under the current Congress.
The debate is reigniting healthcare wars within the Democratic Party.
Fellow Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders criticisms of Obamacare and its failure to provide adequate coverage has put the massive healthcare law in the middle of nasty Democratic game of tug-o-war.
Obamacare’s unpopularity has only compounded as more components of the legislation have taken affect. Dissatisfaction with the law was a key factor in Republican electoral success in 2014.

Assuming that Hillary is the Democrat nominee, another great clip for the Republican candidate to use in the general election.
The woman has no sense of shame or honor. Indict, convict and put her in the General Prison Population – any secrets she may have are already in Moscow, Teheran, and Pyongyang.
Pity we can’t try her in a military court, treason is still a Capital Crime under the UCMJ.
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet!
And she botched it so badly that it never even came close to being brought up for a vote.
That’s a recent photo of Hillary.
It’s a big FU to anyone who sees this ignorant, arrogant bitch going out in public WITHOUT makeup.
A woman past a certain age should know better.
About a lot of things.
But, she doesn’t care.
God is in the details.

Hillary should be wearing this albatross around her neck. It would go with a plain orange pantsuit.
So Hillary’s platform is going to be reparations and more Obamacare?
Yes. she is running as a Democrat.
““It was called HillaryCare before it was called ObamaCare,” Clinton told a crowd of supporters at a country club in Vinton, Iowa.”
Is she bragging, or complaining?
Is this wise, considering how unpopular Obamacare is? But then, if she were wise, she wouldn’t be a Democrat.
I would say she’s screwed…. Bernie idea won’t work either… it’s too costly and it isn’t even the best idea with the present state the economy is in right now under 0bama.
….there’s a reason why Democrats hide from 0bamacare…
essentially, if case the GOP does know this…
…it was a mandate to repeal 0bamacare…
and I mean literal repeal… not ‘play a game of pretend to repeal’ …the voters will only be so lenient for so long before they put someone in power who will accomplish what they want. (which might be Trump… is your wondering why he’s beating Ted Cruz… you can blame the GOP establishment congress/senate for their lack of action on repealing 0bamacare.)
Reparations will screw the dems over on the white vote… which will not take highly to oweing a particular race something… someone’s ancestors did 200 yrs ago. *LOL*
but if you ask me… I think somehow… through some way
Hillary Clinton needs to be made the nominee for the Democrats.
I say that cuz she is clearly the weakest of the canidates so far (easy to beat). most liberals HATE her and won’t vote if she is on the ticket… Republicans have to use every advantage in this election.
Hillary is battling Sanders over the uber-liberal wing of their party, which thinks Obamacare is wonderful (unaware that as bad as it already is, its worst aspect have not yet been implemented). This, along with the reparations pandering, shows that she is no longer laying low during the primaries, certain of the nomination and waiting for the general. She recognizes she now has to compete in the primaries and that is why she is saying shit that would hurt her in the general. She’s now fighting battles, not the overall war.
Note: The final installment of email dumps has been postponed until after the Iowa and NH primaries. Take it as a given they’ve held back the worst emails for this final dump. I’ll bet there’s more damning emails in this final dump than in all the previous dumps put together.
We may be watching the Clinton presidential campaign swirling the drain, pulling moves of desperation that were never part of the campaign strategy. I expect that before the March primaries she’ll be secretly offered by the WH to either (a) end her campaign or (b) face indictment.

True that, Henry!
And We the People demand reparations from the Hillary fund for all of the trouble and work her emails have caused the nation. There are significant (realized and as yet unrealized) damages done to the security of this nation and to me.
Henry you give me hope to believe justice will be served, yet given the fact that it will take the AG Lynch to call a Grand Jury to indict, she has not flown her true colors as to who she works for. The citizens or Obama. There in lies my despair.
Lynch does what Obama tells her. Obama will not allow backlash from a refusal to prosecute obvious Hillary crimes to taint his ‘legacy’. He will cover her till that moment, but will cut the parachute cords the minute Hillary gets too heavy.
I’d also like to see the FBI seize the Clinton Foundation files. Put some pressure of a possible trial on some of the higher echelon and see what shakes out.
Wondering if it would be possible if they find links from the deleted file to any activities of the CR.
Be nice if they could also tie in Chelsea if for no other reason than to see if hitlery would toss Chelsea under the bus.
Wait….the left said Obamacare is nothing more than Romneycare. Does that mean Romenycare is nothing more than Hillarycare?
