In politics, it’s widely understood that if you go after one Clinton, you can expect to get pushed back by the entire Clinton Political Machine.
Now Bill and Hillary’s daughter Chelsea has entered the 2016 media circus with some critical comments about Bernie Sanders’ health care plan.
Hillary Clinton today defended her daughter’s attacks against her Democratic challenger Bernie Sanders’ single-payer health care plan, despite criticism the remark was inaccurate.
“You know, I adore my daughter and I know what she was saying,” Clinton told “Good Morning America” about Chelsea Clinton. “Because if you look at Senator Sanders’ proposals going back nine times in the Congress, that’s exactly what he’s proposed. To take everything we currently know as health care, Medicare, Medicaid, the CHIP Program, private insurance, now of the Affordable Care Act, and roll it together.”
Chelsea Clinton Tuesday joined in on her mother’s jabs against Sanders, saying during a campaign event in New Hampshire that the Vermont senator wants to “dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the CHIP program, dismantle Medicare and private insurance.”
The Sanders campaign quickly responded by saying that Chelsea Clinton was “wrong.”
No wonder the Clinton campaign is firing at all cylinders. For the second time, Team Hillary believed they had the Democratic nomination in the bag, and they were wrong.
