Here's How Hillary Clinton Celebrated Trumpcare Demise


Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton celebrated the demise of the American Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare, by tweeting a statement as well as photos of people who have been positively impacted by the current law, the Affordable Care Act.

"Today was a victory for the 24,000,000 people at risk of losing their health insurance, for seniors, for families battling the quiet epidemic of addiction, for new moms and women everywhere," Clinton's statement read, the Daily Mail reported. "Most of all, it's a victory for anyone who believes affordable health care is a human right. We cannot forget: This victory happened because people in every corner of our country committed their time and energy to calling their representatives, showing up at town hall meetings, and making their voices heard."

Clinton added: "The fight isn't over yet -- we will have to push back on future bad ideas and embrace good ones to make health care more affordable -- but we are reminded today that there is no substitute for standing up and defending our values."

Clinton also tweeted photos of a number of people who have been personally impacted by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, which President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans have been pushing to repeal and replace.

"Let's not be distracted. Let's continue to stand up, organize, resist, put forth good ideas to improve the existing system & peoples' lives," the former secretary of state tweeted.

After Trump and the Republicans pulled the health care bill, which received little support from people on both sides of the aisle, Republican House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin admitted defeat and called Obamacare the "law of the land."

"I don't know what else to say other than Obamacare is the law of the land. It's going to remain the law of the land until it's replaced," Ryan said.

Meanwhile, a lawsuit filed by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch may bring the Clinton email scandal into the news again. The lawsuit is directed at the federal government and claims it failed to assess the damage potentially done to the nation's security because of the actions taken by Clinton while she was serving as secretary of state.

"The Obama administration conspired with Hillary Clinton regarding her emails, so it is no surprise that Obama officials wouldn’t want to hold her to account for her mishandling of classified materials," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement, reports Word Net Daily.

"This lawsuit is an opportunity for the Trump administration to get back to basics on the Clinton email scandal and find out what damage was done to our national security as a result of her illicit email practices."

The suit looks at FBI Director James Comey and his July 2016 announcement regarding the decision not to prosecute Clinton.

"From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 emails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received," Comey said at the time. 

"Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification."
