Hillary Clinton celebrates Trump’s healthcare fail

On Friday, Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to celebrate the downfall of the Republican plan to “repeal and replace” Obamacare.

“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,” she wrote after Republicans withdrew their plan from a vote in the House of Representatives.

“Most of all, it’s a victory for anyone who believes affordable health care is a human right,” she continued. “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.”

— Hillary Clinton is ready to ‘come out of the woods’ — 

“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 various stories of people who had benefited from the Affordable Care Act.

“Let’s not be distracted. Let’s continue to stand up, organize, resist, put forth good ideas to improve the existing system & peoples’ lives,” she tweeted out.
