Harkin: Hillary Clinton's "Fingerprints Are All Over" Obamacare

"I want you all to know that her fingerprints are all over that legislation."

Posted on September 14, 2014, at 6:02 p.m. ET

Iowa Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin said Sunday Hillary Clinton's "fingerprints are all over" Obamacare. The Iowa senator was introducing Clinton to speak at his 37th annual Steak Fry.

"One of the things she always worked on was advancing this concept, this idea that health care should be a right and not a privilege in this country," Harkin said. "So, Hillary was not there when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, she was of course secretary of state, but I want you all to know that her fingerprints are all over that legislation. It would not have happened without her strenuous advocacy in that committee all those years."

Speaking at the high-profile event, headlined this year by former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is often seen as a sign of laying the foundation for a presidential run.
