According to a report out today by Big League Politics, Appointed Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, the former Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter, worked for a leftwing lobbying group that backed Obamacare.
Patrick Howley reported for Big League Politics:
Interim Republican Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith worked for the pro-Obamacare lobbying firm the National Coalition on Health Care.
The Coalition is comprised of member chapters including the AFL-CIO union and the pro-Obamacare AARP, the National Council of La Raza, and the NAACP.
Cindy Hyde-Smith worked as a “Washington lobbyist for five years,” according to an article in the Clarion Ledger in January 2000:
A Cindy Hyde-Smith ad in the Clarion Ledger on August 22, 1999 lists her previous work with the National Coalition on Health Care:
A Los Angeles Times article reveals that the National Coalition on Health Care supported Obamacare:
John Rother is the President and CEO of the National Coalition on Health Care, so he was Cindy Hyde-Smith’s boss. In 2014, he wrote an op-ed for US News and World Report touting Obamacare’s success:
Millions of Americans have been able to obtain coverage who were previously uninsured, and competition among insurers seems to be robust in many, though not all, state marketplaces. Medicare’s drug benefit and coverage for preventative services has been substantially improved.
This new evidence is just more proof that Cindy Hyde-Smith is a lifelong liberal Democrat who only changed parties for political advancement.
Mississippians should be wary!
