‘A victory for all Americans’: A very happy Hillary Clinton celebrates President Trump’s healthcare humiliation

  • Hillary Clinton tweeted that fall of Trumpcare was ‘a victory for all Americans’
  • Former secretary of state praised Americans who voiced opposition to the bill
  • Clinton also tweeted stories of people who benefited from Obamacare 

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday that the defeat of the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare was ‘a victory for all Americans.’

The Democrat, who lost to President Donald Trump in the November 8 election, tweeted: ‘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.’

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

‘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.’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took to Twitter on Friday, saying that the defeat of the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare was ‘a victory for all Americans’

'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,' tweeted Clinton (seen above during a campaign stop in New York in April 2016)

‘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 then posted a number of additional tweets about stories of people who have benefited from Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act.

‘But this fight isn’t over yet and we can’t forget who it’s about,’ Clinton tweeted.

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

Ryan made his admission despite Republicans having seized unified control of government, after House leaders couldn’t fasten a majority to repeal and replace the law, even with urgings and pressure from President Donald Trump.

‘I don’t know what else to say other than Obamacare is the law of the land. It’s going to remain the law of the land until it’s replaced,’ Ryan told reporters at a press conference Friday after he says he told President Trump the bill had to be pulled.

The sinking of the bill was the first major defeat for President Donald Trump (seen above on the left with Vice President Mike Pence)

Just hours after he had hoped to have a bill to repeal Obamacare once and for all on the House floor, speaker Paul Ryan (above) admitted President Obama's signature achievement will remain the 'law of the land'

Ryan said the health system was in a ‘death spiral,’ but acknowledged the Republicans didn’t have the votes to do anything about it.

Clinton’s active presence on Twitter suggest that she has no intention to completely bow out of public life. Earlier this month, she met with a number of political associates to gauge the interest level in a possible run for mayor of New York.

So far, Clinton has not shot down rumors that she is considering a bid to replace Democratic incumbent Bill de Blasio.
