Skip to comments.Ohio Hospital Contests a Story Clinton Tells (Hillary Lies Exposed Again)
Posted on 04/05/2008 2:12:28 AM PDT by red flanker
Over the last five weeks, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York has featured in her campaign stump speeches the story of a health care horror: an uninsured pregnant woman who lost her baby and died herself after being denied care by an Ohio hospital because she could not come up with a $100 fee.
The woman, Trina Bachtel, did die last August, two weeks after her baby boy was stillborn at OBleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, Ohio. But hospital administrators said Friday that Ms. Bachtel was under the care of an obstetrics practice affiliated with the hospital, that she was never refused treatment and that she was, in fact, insured.
We implore the Clinton campaign to immediately desist from repeating this story, said Rick Castrop, chief executive officer of the OBleness Health System.

If she is forced to plead “sleep deprivation” again, her faltering campaign might never be able to recover. The Osama fans in the MSM will take care of it.
...but the Clinton version of the story is more interesting than the Truth!
I don’t know what to say!!!
I’ve attempted a few x’s but words escape me.
I can’t be flip. I can’t be angry. There is something wrong.
Who’s the guy on the right?
“There is something wrong.”
OPINION: Both Mr. and Mrs. Clinton are serial liars.
“Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady... is a congenital liar.”-——William Safire
Yep, that works, too.
“Hillary lies exposed again.”
Hillary lies,exposed again.
The first sent shivers up and down my spine, the second was no surprise
Snicker — good take!
First, the uglier-than-ugly one will lay it at the hands of the deputy ("Linda M. Weiss, a spokeswoman for the not-for-profit hospital, said the Clinton campaign had never contacted the hospital to check the accuracy of the story, which Mrs. Clinton had first heard from a Meigs County, Ohio, sheriffs deputy in late February") until the "reporters" uncover the fact that the lying wife of a lying president, oh so eager to have a pitch, never confirmed the story.
Then the Obama campaign can lay rightful claim attacking her irresponsible conduct and how it would spill over into the White House governance.
To survive the next few months gets more challenging each day!

Now, which candidate would you like to take that 3 a.m. phone call?
Gee, everybody is sniping at Hillary>
Barak (can't mention the middle name) Obama and Michelle (the racist) Obama aren't too far behind.
Another day another lie. When the rat is treated as a Republican by the ratmedia, he doesn’t know what hit him.
But Ms. Sontag has allowed the story into the press, in its entirety, again, without any mention of the hospital’s liability under the federal anti-dumping laws.
Will PA and NC have the good sense NOT to vote for someone who: Cries for a vote, Misspoke for a vote, Misheard for a vote, lies about a hospital for a vote, lies about were her daughter was on 9/11 for a vote and more lies for a vote and then on her MLK speech does the tear trick again for a vote.
I am dumbfounded that people keep falling for her tricks. There’s an old saying “Foul me once, shame on you, foul me twice, shame one me”
A story Obama’s MSM is only reporting because Hillary has not dropped out of the race.
