The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire: GOP Targets Hillary Clinton With Obamacare Attacks

CBS News: Hillary Clinton Open To "Evidence-Based" Obamacare Changes
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a baby step into the radioactive politics of Obamacare on Wednesday, using a pair of speeches in Florida to stake out a nuanced defense of the law that Republicans have used to criticize President Obama for years -- and one they hope to deploy against Clinton if she runs for president in 2016. "I think we are on the right track in many respects but I would be the first to say if things aren't working then we need people of good faith to come together and make evidence-based changes," Clinton said during a speech in Orlando before the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, according to CNN. She singled out Obamacare's impact on small businesses for review, particularly the law's requirement for businesses with over 50 employees to provide health coverage to those employees (Miller, 2/27).
