“It’s not just a political issue, it’s a moral issue,” the Democratic presidential candidate said to supporters at the Louisiana Leadership Institute.
Clinton proceeded with a direct attack against Republican presidential candidate and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for refusing to expand Medicaid under ObamaCare, which she alleged imperative for hundreds of thousands of people in his state to gain proper health care coverage.
Jindal responded by publicly challenging Clinton to a debate.
“Secretary Clinton is the godmother of socialized medicine,” Jindal said in a statement. “The government takever of our health care system started with HillaryCare in the 1990s.”
“I’m not going to let them tear up that law, kick 16 million people off their coverage and force the country to start the health care debate all over again,” she said of GOP efforts to regulate ObamaCare effects.

The Daily Wire took to the streets to find out just how the masses feel about ObamaCare and Hillary’s statements that it is a ‘moral issue.’
“I’m not sure that ObamaCare is the moral issue she thinks it is though,” said Elise Phillips, a writer and photographer in Texas. “I'm sure she's [Hillary’s] never had to choose between refilling a prescription and keeping the power turned on.”
Phillips told The Daily Wire that she had lost her health insurance and was forced to get covered through ObamaCare, which unfortunately caused her to lose her Rx support from Amgen.
“The fact that she's proud to be part of a program that is forcing me and many others to search for second jobs and pawn their possessions to buy their essential medications - well that is a moral issue for me. It rubs me the wrong way that anyone could be proud of a system that is crippling me financially.”
Mike Gardner told The Daily Wire that he had lost his insurance and that his new plan had a higher deductible, higher premiums, and less choice.
“If she [Clinton] plans to enforce it,” he said of ObamaCare, "implement the entire legislation without further delay. It will break itself.”
Others posted their issues with ObamaCare to social media.
