Hillary Clinton to Miami Students: ObamaCare 'Liberates' Americans
Hillary Clinton offered up a passionate defense of ObamaCare during an appearance at the University of Miami Wednesday night, claiming that the new law will "liberate" Americans. Clinton, who most expect to seek the presidency in 2016, argued that workers will no longer have to stay at jobs they don't like just so they can have health insurance
“Ultimately, having access to health insurance [that is] not connected to employment, subsidized as it is under the Affordable Care Act, liberates you to choose what you want to do in your life. You don’t have to take a job, as so many people in my generation did, just to have health insurance,” said Clinton.
“I know so many friends from literally high school, college, who stayed in jobs for decades because they had a spouse with a preexisting condition and they couldn’t afford to lose the job they had. You will be liberated from that.”
Clinton said she's open to making changes to ObamaCare, but didn't get into specifics.
The former secretary of state sat down for a question-and-answer session with students, alongside university president Donna Shalala, who served as HHS Secretary in the Clinton administration.
