Uh-oh. It looks like Hillary is making stuff up again, only this time it isn't sniper fire but dead pregnant women and their dead babies.
Over the last five weeks, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York has featured in her campaign stump speeches the story of a health care horror: an uninsured pregnant woman who lost her baby and died herself after being denied care by an Ohio hospital because she could not come up with a $100 fee.
Um... Bullshit. Hospitals may not turn away emergencies by law, regardless of ability to pay.
The woman, Trina Bachtel, did die last August, two weeks after her baby boy was stillborn at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, Ohio. But hospital administrators said Friday that Ms. Bachtel was under the care of an obstetrics practice affiliated with the hospital, that she was never refused treatment and that she was, in fact, insured.
Uh-oh. Another little fact snafu, huh, Hillary?
“We implore the Clinton campaign to immediately desist from repeating this story,” said Rick Castrop, chief executive officer of the O’Bleness Health System.
I say the hospital should sue the fabulist for slander/defamation.
Linda M. Weiss, a spokeswoman for the not-for-profit hospital,(NOT FOR PROFIT? Why would they demand $100? Geez, Hillary's lies aren't even coherent.) said the Clinton campaign had never contacted the hospital to check the accuracy of the story, which Mrs. Clinton had first heard from a Meigs County, Ohio, sheriff’s deputy in late February.
A Clinton spokesman, Mo Elleithee, said candidates would frequently retell stories relayed to them, vetting them when possible. “In this case, we did try but were not able to fully vet it,” Mr. Elleithee said. “If the hospital claims it did not happen that way, we respect that.”
Yeah, I'm sure they vet everything whenever possible. LOL! And notice that they say they respect the hospital's stance? Just not enough to stop lying about them.
The hospital would not provide details about the woman’s case, citing privacy concerns; she died two weeks after the stillbirth at a medical center in Columbus.
“We reviewed the medical and patient account records of this patient,” said Mr. Castrop, the health system’s chief executive. Any implication that the system was “involved in denying care is definitely not true.”
So how can you tell when Hillary is lying?
This just goes to show even further that leftists do not think, but feel. Hillary is going to lie to her base in order to guilt-trip this country into Commie-Care.
This is just ridiculous. Watch this and just feel...
I feel just a little tired of this!
