Hillary Clinton Delivers Strongly Worded Condemnation Of Republican Healthcare Bill On Twitter

As a general rule of thumb, presidential candidates that come up short in an election will gracefully exit stage left and keep to themselves for awhile. After a good amount of time has passed, they may reenter the world of politics with a new perspective. Losing a presidential election is undoubtedly tough, and some time out of the spotlight can prove to be quite therapeutic. There’s also another tactic you can use, and that’s been demonstrated by failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has spent an inordinate amount of time in the spotlight for someone that came up so embarrassingly short. Apparently, this is her version of therapy, as she has made a complete spectacle of herself while blaming anyone and everyone but herself for blowing the election. Among the various gems she has enthralled the masses with are that she lost because she was a woman, the DNC dropped the ball, and there was apparently a vast network of Macedonian agents working behind the scenes to control the outcome of a US election.

As Yahoo shares, Clinton has taken a small break from beating the conspiracy drum to chime in on health care. GOP leaders have come up with their latest draft, and it can quite frankly use some work. Though the vote on the bill has been postponed, tensions remain high. Rather than offering up a helpful solution, Clinton decided to drop some outrageous comments on social media.

“Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, they're the death party,” she wrote.

How responsible of her. Just a few weeks back, we had a terrifying situation happen in Alexandria in which a deranged gunman specifically targeted members of the Republican Party. The investigation revealed that the man was riled up by some hateful rhetoric on the Left. Fast forward to now, and Clinton feels it’s appropriate to add more hateful rhetoric to the conversation.

That’s not just ridiculous, it’s downright irresponsible. While the shooter in Alexandria is obviously responsible for his own actions, wasn’t that enough of a lesson for everybody that the rhetoric needs to be dialed back? It should’ve been, but we’ll assume Clinton missed the memo while she was busy in the Mystery Machine putting the finishing touches on her investigation into Macedonian agents.

Clinton was not the only prominent member of the Left to sing from that hymn book on the GOP’s bid to fix health care. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) would also chime in, and he hit similarly inflammatory notes.

“If you throw 23 million people off of health insurance, if you cut Medicaid by over $800 billion, there is no question but that thousands of Americans will die,” he said.

Once again, this is beyond irresponsible. In essence, Sanders is saying that GOP leaders are specifically drafting legislation that will lead to the death of people. Does he really believe that his congressional colleagues would do this in good conscience? We would assume no, but that doesn’t fit neatly into a sound byte.

As opposed to blatant fear mongering, perhaps Clinton and Sanders can actually go through the legislation piece by piece to help find a solution that works for everyone. That would be really helpful, but it’s apparently much easier for them to take the low road and attempt to inflame people even more.
