Last month, Senate Republicans unveiled a half-baked health bill that was plotted in secrecy to repeal and replace Obamacare. But the plan is so bad that it never made it to the Senate floor for a vote due to the lack of support. Now, Republicans have finally admitted that they’re clueless about how health care works.
On Wednesday, the Republican National Committee asked Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Democratic lawmakers to come up with their own healthcare plan, if they didn’t like what GOP senators were cooking up — and social media users responded.
In their official Twitter account, the RNC issued the challenge to the Clintons, neither of whom currently hold elected office, along with Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
“Our healthcare system is collapsing, but Democrats refuse to bring anything to the table,” the RNC tweeted. “Where’s THEIR plan?”
Democratic lawmakers have said they would not participate in any efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which Republicans have threatened to do since it passed into law and President Donald Trump promised to do immediately upon election.
Twitter users pounced on the challenge and pointed the RNC to health care reform plans posted on the campaign websites for Hillary Clinton and Sanders.

Hey Mitch McConnell, where's the plan from the 39 Republican senators you didn't trust to include in drafting YOUR plan?

I'm confused it's like you don't know that he's a single payer advocate.
Who other than apparently you doesn't know that?
