Hillary Clinton wants you to know that she was doing health care before health care was cool.

“You know, before it was called Obamacare it was called Hillarycare,” Clinton said recently at a rally in Elko, Nev.

It’s a stock line these days in her stump speeches and debates.

The term Hillarycare was coined back in the 1990s, when Clinton tried and failed to restructure the U.S. health care system during her husband’s first term as president. It was supposed to be an insult, but now she’s embracing it.

That’s because Clinton-the-presidential-candidate has made the Affordable Care Act — or Obamacare — the center of her health care plan.

She’s not looking to be a revolutionary like her
