Hillary Clinton won’t release her personal medical records, but Obamacare keeps YOUR medical records forever!

Jul 4, 2015 Consider it another case of the governing elite playing by a set of rules different from the ones they impose on the rest of us, further tearing asunder the uniquely American founding principle of “government of, for and by the people.”

In an astounding act of hubris, in recent days the campaign manager for Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton said that she would not commit to releasing her health records at some point during the 2016 election campaign.

During a Face the Nation episode, host John Dickerson noted that she “had a big health scare when she was secretary of state” before asking campaign manager Robby Mook, “Will she release her medical records as part of this campaign?”

“I will let Hillary decide that,” Mook replied. “But I can tell you she has been hitting the campaign trail hard.”

Prior recent injury makes health questions relevant

Presidential health is an issue, obviously, and in Clinton’s case, the interest in hers is legitimate.

In 2012, she had to delay her Benghazi testimony before Congress after she fell and suffered a concussion. Later, she was treated for a blood clot in her brain, a condition that some experts said might have become life-threatening. She later joked about her “cracked head” in emails that the State Department has released recently, but her husband, Bill Clinton, revealed in 2014 that her injuries “required six months of very serious work to get over.”
