In 1993, then-First Lady Hillary Clinton decided that she would remake the US health care system into some megalomaniacal socialist nightmare. When her grandiose plan failed, Downies went down to defeat in the 1994 midterm elections, and her husband, The Rapist© Willy Clinton, had to moderate his policies to avoid being defeated in 1996.
Now, Hillary, a US Senator, finds herself in the majority in the US Senate. What does she want to do? Bring back Hillarycare, that's what.
What has she learned from her 1993-94 experience? Apparently nothing.
Clinton Outlines Legislative Priorities
Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday outlined an ambitious agenda of legislative priorities while continuing to deflect questions about her presumed presidential ambitions.
"I will look at the possibilities, but I ... haven't really had the time to talk to people about it," Clinton told a breakfast gathering hosted by the Association for a Better New York. "It's been a busy election season that worked out well, so I will think about it. I'm open to thoughts."
She also said Democrats would focus on improving the quality and affordability of health care _ a touchy matter for the former first lady, who in 1993 led her husband's calamitous attempt to overhaul the nation's health care system. The failure of that effort helped Republicans win control of both the Senate and House the following year.
"Health care is coming back," Clinton warned, adding, "It may be a bad dream for some."
Actually, Hillary, it will be bad news for you and your fellow Downies, because we remember what it took to defeat your Socialist monstrosity...
And here's a lovely story about what the stakes in this fight are all about: what socialist health care would become here in America. A man in England, where health care is a joke, not a right, had a problem: His tooth fell out, and he could not get an appointment with a dentist. What did he do? He glued it in with Superglue.
Hillarycare 2007: Get your Superglue ready, America.
Dentist shortage leads man to superglue own tooth
A man fixed his front tooth with superglue after failing to find an NHS dentist.
Gordon Cook, 55, has used the bizarre "DIY dentistry" technique on a loose crown for the last three years - with each fresh application of glue lasting around two months.
What a fucking joke that this shit has to be defeated again. Pick up your pitchforks, America, for the fight is upon us.
