Perhaps more than any other misstep he has made in the past five years, Barack Obama’s provably false claim regarding his healthcare claim has done significant damage to his already faltering credibility.
After telling a skeptics across the U.S. they could keep their existing policies even after ObamaCare was implemented, millions of cancellation notices began flooding mailboxes from coast to coast. Caught in an unavoidable lie, Obama and his handlers have tried desperately over the past several weeks to mitigate the disaster.
Among his current critics, many are former supporters in the Democrat Party. Last week, Bill Clinton even weighed in, imploring Obama to do whatever it takes to stay true to his word.
Perhaps the former president should have the same conversation with his wife, who is clearly poised to engage in her second White House bid in 2016. As a prospective candidate in the 2008 campaign, Hillary Clinton had the opportunity to once again tout her healthcare plan.
Though Americans overwhelmingly rejected her proposals during her husband’s presidency more than a decade earlier, healthcare reform was a major issue in the months leading up to Obama’s ultimate selection as the Democrat’s nominee.
Images captured from Hillary’s campaign website in 2007 clearly show she was on board with Obama’s infamous false promise before even he was.
“If you have a plan you like, you keep it,” the healthcare-related portion of the site reads, almost a word-for-word quote of Obama’s subsequent lie.
As the 2016 election cycle draws near, conservative watchdogs in the alternative media will remain busy digging up the skeletons Hillary Clinton is relying on the mainstream media to keep buried. In addition to the obvious scandals – i.e. her inept handling of the Benghazi attack – this revelation will force her to answer for her role in the healthcare debacle.
No matter how hard she tries to distance herself from his failed administration, there is no denying the fact that Hillary Clinton wants to take America down a frighteningly similar path as Obama.
