Video: Bill Clinton trashing Obamacare
I have mentioned before that a gaffe was when a politician accidentally tells the truth and yesterday Bill Clinton had one of those moments when he trashed Obamacare as a “crazy system” which hurts “small businesses” and the middle class. (Individuals who make just too much to get the subsidies, as he put it.) He also said it is the “craziest thing in the world” and “it doesn’t make any sense” and “the model doesn’t work” because it favors the insurance companies.
Isn’t this what we have been saying for years? Oh, and by the way, weren’t we called racists for pointing out these defects?
Bill Clinton did not take long to walk back these comments but this was not just an off the cuff remark, this was a well thought out, nuanced, and rehearsed attack on Obamacare. As I said above, he accidentally told the truth and somebody in the Democratic party must have got to him and told him this is no time to tell the truth–there is an election to win after all…
Here is the video:
