Hecklers are nothing new to former President Bill Clinton. He’s heard it all ever since the start of his appearances on behalf of his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Even last month, when protesters started shouting out in rallies, “Bill Clinton is a rapist,” the former president would give the protester a good-natured scolding, a dose of ridicule or a one-liner about the other side’s feeble attempts to disrupt the Clinton juggernaut.

Things have changed.On Tuesday, a Clinton opponent crashed a Florida rally to ask the former president about his comments criticizing Obamacare, leading Bill Clinton to angrily defend his remarks.

Last week, preparatory to defending his wife’s approach on Obamacare, Bill Clinton noted all that was wrong with the Affordable Care Act.

“Look, what are the problems with the law?” Clinton asked a crowd of Democratic supporters.

“We can all tick them off, right?” he asked.

“The co-pays, deductibles and premiums are too high,” Clinton said.

“And the drug prices are too high,” he added.

He had earlier trashed Obamacare at another rally, saying “So you’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It’s the craziest thing in the world.”

On Tuesday, during a rally in Immokalee, Fla., Bill Clinton was confronted with questions about those comments.

Gone was the easy smile and the flip repartee.

“What are you asking?” Clinton snapped.

“That is not at all what I said. Oh, really? Go read it. Go read it. And don’t read it on the Internet, don’t read it on the Internet, get the whole thing. First, I campaigned hard for that law. Second, I risked losing the Congress to pass universal health care. Thirdly, I defended President Obama in 2010 and 2012 and he went up 5 points in the polls after I defended what he did with health care.”

Clinton tried to attack Republicans who want to make changes in Obamacare, but came back to focusing on defending himself.

“We shouldn’t be in denial, the president said the same thing,” Clinton said. “I didn’t say a thing that the president hadn’t already said, or that the health care people in his administration hadn’t already said in his administration.”
