Now that Chelsea Clinton has joined the political fray and launched harsh attacks on Bernie Sanders, she should be held to the same level of scrutiny as any other politician.
And true to her family name, Chelsea’s attack on Sanders contains the same deceptive streak that characterizes both of her parents. Here is what she claimed: “Senator Sanders wants to dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the CHIP program, dismantle Medicare and private insurance.”
The word “dismantle” insinuates that Sanders wants to eliminate those programs, which is false. However misguided Sanders’ plan is, the truth is he wants to consolidate all those programs into one big government program of nationalized health care.
Need evidence? Ironically enough, here’s Chelsea’s mother with a more accurate description: “He wants to roll Medicare, Medicaid, the children’s health insurance program, the Affordable Care Act program and private health insurance into a national system.”
“The Clintons have built a career in politics through deliberate dishonesty—it’s sad to see them pushing Chelsea out there with the same deceptive playbook.” – American Crossroads Communications Director, Ian Prior
