Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took to Twitter Friday to celebrate the House Republicans’ pulling of a vote on their bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, calling it a “victory for all Americans.”

Clinton — who has kept a fairly low profile since her defeat last November, save for a few public speaking engagements and some walks in the woods — released a statement on President Donald Trump’s favorite social media platform, hailing the move to pull the bill as a victory for affordable health care and urging Democrats to fight on.

Following her statement, she shared the stories of those who have been helped by the Affordable Care Act.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
