The GOP Asked Hillary Clinton For Her Health Care Plan — So She Gave It To Them

"Right here."

Following her loss in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton is now a private citizen. However, that didn't stop the Republican National Committee from asking her to share a plan for a better health care system.

On Wednesday, in the midst of ongoing protests and criticism against the health care bills proposed by Republicans in Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the GOP Twitter account posted, "Our healthcare system is collapsing, but Democrats refuse to bring anything to the table. Where's THEIR plan?"


The account then shared several videos featuring such people as Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former President Bill Clinton, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaking about the need to improve health care in the United States. 

"We've got to fix what's broken," the account quoted Clinton as saying, before asking, "Where's your plan, @HillaryClinton?"

The request received backlash from users who pointed out that Clinton is no longer in government — not to mention the fact that she spoke about her health care plan during last year's election, and it can still be found on her website.

Clinton herself responded a few hours later with precisely that link, adding that the plan features "radical provisions like how not to kick 23 [million people] off their coverage," referring to a Congressional Budget Office estimate for the American Health Care Act, which passed in the House of Representatives earlier this year. She then added, "Feel free to run [with] it."

As outlined on her website, Clinton's plan would "defend and expand" the Affordable Care Act by lowering copays and deductibles, as well as prescription drug costs. She also promised to "defend access to reproductive health care." The site even includes links to more detailed explanations.

The tweet received tens of thousands of reweets, with some users sharing funny reaction GIFs. Others noted how Clinton had been criticized during the election for being "overprepared" for debates, yet is now expected to share policy details after her loss. Some wondered what the RNC even expected her response to be.

Since her election loss, Clinton has continued to speak out about current politics, delivering several inspiring speeches and launching a new political action group called Onward Together. She's also shared a few other sharp Twitter responses, including one that poked fun at Donald Trump's infamous "covfefe" typo.
