Skip to comments.Clinton Unable to Save Sink from Obamacare in FL Election
Posted on 03/12/2014 9:40:18 AM PDT by Cheerio
Bill Clinton lent his political muscle to Democrat Alex Sinks election campaign for the 13th congressional district of Florida, but to no avail. Sink wound up losing to her Rand Paul-supported Republican opponent, David Jolly, in what many analysts are calling a bellwether election for the impact of Obamacare on the 2014 election cycle.
In a high-profile election that pitted candidates on opposite sides of the Obamacare issue and saw over $11 million spent, both parties pulled out the big guns in the days leading up to Tuesday's election.
The week before the election, Bill Clinton offered his support to Sink, recording a phone call that went out to local Democratic volunteers. The Huffington Post reports that over a half-dozen House Democrats also emailed fundraising appeals on Sinks behalf.

That’s the second sink that had issues with Clinton.
In before the Sink Emperor comments ... oh, wait ...
Cougar Clinton PING!
Most interesting because Sink is known as a rainmaker here due to her ability to raise very large amounts for cold hard cash quickly.
She certainly outspent Jolly.
Typical GOP war against women. Headline should probably be: “Female Democrat ‘Beaten’ by White Male.”
Clinton has always had problems where sinks are concerned.....................
Interesting insight, thanks.
Occasionally we get a hopeful development.
Rand Paul’s strategy of attacking Clinton makes good political sense. There will be a backlash against perversity.
He just let her sink.
In a question-and-answer session following a lecture at UCLA, Hillary Clinton suggested shes open to different ways of achieving the health laws goals.
She praised Arkansas the state where she and her husband rose to political fame for carrying out a new approach to expanding Medicaid coverage, by using the federal money to buy private health insurance for more than 100,000 low-income residents.
Hillary Clinton called the Arkansas move, spearheaded by Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe and a Republican-led Legislature, a brilliant approach that allowed the state to increase health coverage despite GOP concerns about adding more people to the traditional Medicaid program.
The Arkansas House approved the plans renewal Tuesday...(Excerpt) Read more at politico.com ...
Even if Hillary manages to escape the O/Care stigma, she is toxic----b/c lock-stepping Dems are super-glued onto Obamacare ......
BACKSTORY In 2009, retiring Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry presciently warned that ObamaCare was setting up Democrats for a huge 2010 midterm defeat; just as HillaryCare led to Democrat loss of 54 House seats in 1994.
Obama scoffed at such concerns; he told Berry, Well, the big difference here is youve got me.
SO MUCH FOR O'S EGOTISM 2010 Republicans went on to win 63 House seats and six Senate seats.....the largest swing to Repubs in the House since 1938. So Obama was right---the difference was him. ROTFL.
On to 2016 (and 2014).
Hey, Bill, the ‘90’s called.
They want their pop-culture President back.
Fact remains, Florida is a scab that wont heal WRT Democrat's presidential ambitions---- b/c of the Gore loss to Bush over a hanging chad. The USSC was deployed due to the legal brilliance of Bush SoS James Baker---who outmaneuvered Gore's people at every turn. The Dems ploy is to count and count until they have the votes to win----the Supremes ordered the count to stop.
I do believe Billy-Boy---paranoid over Hillary's chances--- stepped in it bigtime when he advised Obama to keep his promise---to let people keep their plans.
Now, more than ever, the electorate is focused on the blunders of Obamacare........ which preceded Hillarycare. In fact, it was 2007 Hillary Clinton who originally used the wonderfully reassuring if you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
Hillary's 2007 campaign website was unearthed by America Rising. America's Rising found written on the website under "HILLARYCARE"---AKA Hillarys American Health Choices Plan---the phrase: if you have a plan you like, you keep it.
See a smiling Hillary (above) in 2007, saying: You can keep the doctors you know and trust. You keep the insurance you have. If you have private insurance you like, nothing changes, you can keep that insurance.
Debbie Wassername must be swilling vodka and valium as we type. Lock-stepping Dumbos kept swearing they were gonna run and win on the (gag) "glories" of Obamacare b/c "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)
THE DUMBOCRAT LOSER LIST MOUNTS: Lock-stepping Democrats Feinstein, Boxer AND Pres Obama all endorsed the San Diego Democrat mayoral latino loser Alvarez (Third World pressure groups ordered to vote illegally were no-shows).
Obamacare was touted as Democrat Valhalla. As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature healthcare plan---ultimately enacted, by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote, into the "Affordable Care Act"
QUOTING 2008 OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor. Repeated over and over again---- with his promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
Significantly, Obamba NEVER corrected lock-stepping Democrats, all reading from the same Democrat talking points, all of them repeating the same Democrat promises---over and over again.
LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE Obama And the Dems marched in lockstep.....the persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D-CALIF): So we Democrats want people to be able to keep the health care they have. And the answer to that is choice of plans. And in the state exchange, were going to have lots of different plans, and people will be able to keep the health care coverage they need and they want. (Sen. Boxer, Press Release, 2/8/11)
SEN DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D-CALI): I listened to the president and I believed him when he said, 'if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.' I believed he was correct. I didn't realize there were all these codicils attached to it. President Obama should never have promised that people would be able to keep their health plans. I think he was done a disservice. Someone should have stopped him and said on his staff. There's this condition and that condition."
SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D-La): If you like the insurance that you have, youll be able to keep it. (MSNBCs Hardball, 12/16/09)
THEN-HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI (Dim-CALIF): "We must pass the O-care bill so we can find out whats in it."
The lock-stepping Dumbo list goes on and on.
Does that bottle really contain Mrs. Bill Clintons Pee?
I can see the ad now- - - -
Cougar Pee is what you need, to be as admired as if you were Mrs. Bill Clinton, the most admired Cougar in America. Take a swig today!
I am sure there is folly in my thinking but I have thought for a long time that some sort of catastrophic insurance could be provided to those below certain income levels...to CITIZENS, not illegals.
And this would be for private insurance - not the takeover farce that is Obamacare. However, not sure what is cheaper - letting them go to the emergency rooms like they are now or giving them a bare bones private insurance plan.
Mrs Clinton refers to it in private.... as Cougar Wee Wee!
