The former secretary of state, senator and first lady suggested the employer mandate (which requires businesses with 50 or more workers to provide health care) was potentially problematic if employers were "moving people from full-time work to part-time work to try to avoid contributing to their health care," she said.

Clinton said it would be "a great tragedy" to take away benefits that are in effect, and "I don't think we should throw the baby out with the bath."

"Part of the challenge is to clear away all the smoke and try to figure out what is working and what isn’t," she's quoted as saying. "What do we need to do to try to fix this?"
