Bill Clinton seemingly broke from the script Monday while campaigning for his wife in Michigan. Speaking to a group of supporters, the former president said he thinks Obamacare is a bad idea, characterizing President Obama’s signature act of legislation as “the craziest thing in the world,” The Washington Times reports.
Tell us something we don’t know. But wait a minute — doesn’t Hillary Clinton support the Affordable Care Act?
Here’s but one excerpt from a speech the former secretary of state delivered in July 2015:
Under the “Health Care” section of Clinton’s campaign website, the Democratic nominee promises to “defend and expand the Affordable Care Act.” It would appear as though Bill did not get the “defend the Affordable Care Act” memo.
Here is a clip of Clinton bashing Obamacare as a policy that kills small businesses:
There’s also this clip, in which he refers to the health care legislation as “a crazy system” that punishes the middle class.
“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” Bill Clinton said. “It’s the craziest thing in the world.”
The millions of Americans whom Obamacare has hurt agree with you. The question is, does your wife?
As Byron York and the Washington Examiner recently noted, though the progressive health care bill is something Hillary has “worked for all her adult life,” she’s kept eerily quiet on the subject as Election Day draws near:
Instead, York notes, Hillary Clinton has tailored her speeches to communicate goals of general health care reform and creating “a health care system that works.”
