Yeah Bernie, Where Were You During Clinton’s Healthcare Reform Fight in ’93 and ‘94?


Hillary Clinton, who is becoming notorious for false attacks on Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare For All” healthcare plan, asked a crowd in Saint Louis this week: “Where was he when I was trying to get health care in ’93 and ’94?”

Well Hillary, the Sanders campaign has a really great answer for you:

Bernie Sanders was literally right behind Clinton during her 1994 press conference during which the then-First Lady spoke about a universal, single-payer healthcare. Not only did Hillary forget that Bernie was there, but she seems to have forgotten that she was fighting for almost the same healthcare system that Bernie Sanders’ has called for in his “Medicare for All” plan.

It gets worse. There is also a handwritten from Hillary to Bernie thanking him for his support and commitment to real health care access for all Americans:

Meanwhile in the present Clinton is bashing Sanders’ universal health care plan calling it “unrealistic.”
