Incredible! The presidential candidate pushing health insurance mandates for individuals and businesses didn’t pay the health insurance premiums for her campaign employees:
Among the debts reported this month by Hillary Clinton’s struggling presidential campaign, the $292,000 in unpaid health insurance premiums for her campaign staff stands out.
The Clinton campaign said that it was just a minor bookkeeping issue, but her rival for the Democratic nomination isn’t behind on his premiums. Nor is the presumptive Republican nominee:
Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, did not report any unpaid bills to insurance providers at the end of February.
Not a huge issue in the grand scheme of things, of course. But, for a presidential campaign with a metastasizing credibilty problem, the symbolism could hardly be worse.
