Last week, it was widely reported Bill Clinton finally had a ‘the Emperor has no clothes’ moment and admitted what millions of working families already knew: ObamaCare is not working for most of the nation. Let’s compare Clinton vs Nelson.
Bill Clinton slams ObamaCare: ‘It’s the craziest thing in the world’
“You’ve got this crazy system where all the sudden 25 million more people have healthcare 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,” Clinton said.
“It’s the craziest thing in the world,” he said.
In response to Clinton’s comments and the very real issues facing ObamaCare Nelson said:
Thomas Nelson said absolutely nothing. He holds weekly “press conferences” to attack Mike Gallagher, not discuss his policy views. Because like a desperate career politician, Nelson believes problems are solved through launching attacks.
Nelson owes voters answers to why he praised ObamaCare, calling it the “final solution,” and why he’s hiding from it today.
Facts surrounding ObamaCare:
- There are still 31 million people uninsured.
- Numerous states have lost more than 80% of their insurers
- Some premiums have risen by nearly 40% over the last year
- ObamaCare is projected to result in an additional $274 billion in administrative costs alone from 2014 through 2022.
Background: The Associated Press reported that while speaking at a rally in Flint, Michigan this week, President Bill Clinton blasted President Obama’s health care law, saying “You’ve got this crazy system where all the sudden 25 million more people have healthcare 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.”
Thomas Nelson touted ObamaCare to the Appleton Post-Crescent in 2014, praising its importance, and saying it was “finally a solution.” (Source: Jim Collar, “Insurance push zeroes in on young and healthy,” The Post-Crescent, Feb. 28, 2014).
Since launching his campaign in April, Nelson has been silent on nearly every issue including this one, leaving voters with little information about his candidacy. Meanwhile, Mike Gallagher routinely releases statements to the public.
