Hillary Clinton defends Obamacare against Republicans' 'bad politics'

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton on Tuesday defended Obamacare against "a noisy minority" in Congress and described some Republicans' legislative tactics to defund the landmark program as "deeply distressing" and "bad politics."

"This president is not going to agree to defund health care," Clinton said at a health panel just before President Barack Obama was to make an appearance.

    She defended Walmart too as an attorney, doesn't make her right! 15,000 pages of new regulations sound like they kept it simple to you?

    After watching the GOTP through the Clinton years, and the Obama years, I have noted that they do nothing but grow more and more extreme, and religiously extreme. Their lies never stop. Their extremism covers all subjects from the bedroom to war to death. I will never vote for another person with a R behind his name. They solve nothing, and seem to have little if anything to add to any intelligent discussion.

    Gop thugs want every one to have GUNS–not HEALTH CARE, RETHUGLICANS WANT WARS TO LOOT ON FEDERAL CONTRACTS–not healthcare!! Drive these animals to cattle barn put some grass.

    What's deeply depressing is low income families paying $177 / mo in premiums will pay $547/mo in 2014 for the same package. What's deeply depressing is the job creators (commerce) have to downsize to avoid large increases in private healthcare, hence taking away jobs. What's deeply depressing is more people would rather pay the fine, than get healthcare. A landmark legislature? Bad politics is when YOU DON'T DEFUND PROGRAMS THAT WILL HURT AMERICANS AND THIER ECONOMY.

    What do you expect she defended her husband when he lied to her about the many sex partners he has had since they have been married.

    We don't need another Clinton in the White House.

    I certainly agree with Ms. Clinton- except that what the GOP is doing is not "bad politics" at all- it's extrusion, pure and simple with a nice overlay of economic terrorism. I don't think we can call the GOP "politicians anymore.

    well, she's right, Obama isn't going to go with the republicans ideas of "defunding" the ACA . LOL – 'ole Cruz isn't making the rest of the GOP happy right now....To be perfectly honest, for all the "antics" that he's doing, he is making sure there's going to be a Democrat in the W.H. in 2016..... Don't know about 2014, that all depends on the 18 – 40 Voters, whether they even Care or not, (about anything) or Care about Voting or not.
