Desperate Hillary tries to spin Obamacare as positive AND take credit for it

Yep, she really went there.

With the release of the latest CNN/ORC poll Thursday, showing Sen. Bernie Sanders take an eight-point lead over Democratic presidential competitor Hillary Clinton among likely Iowa voters, Clinton is in panic mode.

In a knee-jerk response, she claimed ownership of the Affordable Care Act — Obamacare.

“It was called Hillarycare before it was called Obamacare,” Clinton told supporters in Vinton, Iowa, Thursday. “I don’t want to start over.”

Amy Chozick, political reporter for The New York Times, tweeted:

With all the problems Obamacare created — crippling taxes, escalating premiums, huge fines for non-participation, massive deductibles, failing exchanges and rising co-pays — was it wise for her to want to take credit of it?

People on Twitter didn’t think so.

Some pointed out that Hillarycare, proposed when she served as first lady, was even worse than the Affordable Care Act.

The question becomes: is it a case of desperation or is dementia settling in?
