Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton fired back at the Republican National Committee’s request Wednesday for a healthcare plan by sending them her 2016 campaign’s very comprehensive and common-sense plan for “universal, quality, affordable health care for everyone in America.”
The GOP Twitter account targeted Clinton along Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), with clips of those lawmakers calling for changes to healthcare, asking them, “Where’s your plan?”

Clinton shot back, linking a page to her campaign website in a tweet.
“Right here. Includes radical provisions like how not to kick 23 [million people] off their coverage. Feel free to run [with] it,” Clinton tweeted in response.

The Hill added:
“The RNC was targeting Democratic senators who are refusing to back the Republican plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Senate Republicans are currently working on their second draft of the legislation after several GOP senators said they wouldn’t support the first version of the bill.”
The Republicans have voted to repeal or amend the Affordable Care Act more than 50 times since it was passed in 2009, almost a decade ago, and since then they have failed to come up with a good alternative that can pass even a Republican-controlled Congress.
