As the Clintons continue their quest for power, it seems that no foe is too large for the couple to denounce on their way to November’s general election.
In what could be considered one of the most blatant pieces of pandering that we’ve seen all year, Bill Clinton took to the stump to blast Obama’s pride and joy; The Affordable Care Act. Obamacare, as it is colloquially known, has been a sticking point for Americans of all political beliefs, as the system simply does not work in tandem with a successful free market.
“At a campaign stop in Flint, Mich., Clinton blamed Obamacare’s exchange system in particular for the chaos.
“’It doesn’t make any sense. The insurance model doesn’t work here,’ he said. ‘So you’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have healthcare and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half.’”
“’It’s the craziest thing in the world.’
“Clinton even pointed out that small business owners and the middle class are the hardest hit by Obamacare.”
Clinton’s sudden change of rhetoric on Obamacare could signals two things to the American voter. First, that Hillary’s campaign is so certain of the outcome of the November contest that they are willing to tell the truth about Obamacare and risk alienating the president and his staunch supporters. Or, more likely, that Hillary is failing so miserably in the polls that she is resorting to using her husband to pick up bits and pieces of the Bernie crowd who lambasted Obamacare from the get-go.
