Former President Bill Clinton speaks to a group of supporters during a fundraiser for Democratic Senate challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, in Louisville, Ky.

WASHINGTON — The National Archives has released about 4,000 pages of previously confidential documents involving former President Bill Clinton's administration.

The release included memorandums related to the former president's failed health-care reform proposal in 1993 and 1994.

One document from Clinton's health care advisers, written in April 1993, said it was important to complete "a health reform package that can be sold in a timely fashion."

The papers could shed light on Clinton's presidency and provide insight into a possible future presidential candidate: former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The health care task force led by the first lady failed to win support, and the issue hurt Democrats in the 1994 midterm elections.

Read tomorrow's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for full details.

The Clinton's are just opportunists that prey on the weak minded and take everyone's money. Power hungry slugs that care about no one, probably not even family members.

Remember when she was asked about Hillary Care killing jobs and businesses? She said essentially that wasn't her problem.
