She blasted Republicans in a tweet over the Senate GOP's recently unveiled bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare. “Forget death panels,” Clinton tweeted. “If Republicans pass this bill, they’re the death party.”

Clinton’s jab follows an earlier tweet urging her followers to “speak out” against the Senate GOP’s bill. 

“[President] Obama is right. This is a critical moment about choosing people over politics,” Clinton tweeted. “Speak out against this bill.”

Obama also slammed the Republican legislation on Thursday in a lengthy Facebook post. 

"The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill," Obama wrote. "It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.”

"Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family – this bill will do you harm," he continued. "And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation." 

Senate Republicans unveiled their healthcare bill on Thursday, which contains deep cuts to Medicaid, defunds Planned Parenthood for a year and ends ObamaCare’s individual mandate.
