The Hill reports:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday took a shot at his presidential rival Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) after she said she was not “comfortable” with his “Medicare for All” plan. Sanders’s tweet comes after Harris pushed back on Sanders’s signature health care plan at a fundraiser in the Hamptons over the weekend.
“I support Medicare for All. But as you may have noticed, over the course of the many months, I’ve not been comfortable with Bernie’s plan, the Medicare for All plan,” Harris said at the fundraiser, according to remarks provided by her campaign.
Harris co-sponsored Sanders’s Medicare for All bill in 2017 and again earlier this year. But since introducing her own Medicare for All plan last month, Harris has been touting that plan as better than Sanders’s.
I don’t go to the Hamptons to raise money from billionaires. If I ever visited there, I would tell them the same thing I have said for the last 30 years: We must pass a Medicare for All system to guarantee affordable health care for all, not just for those who can afford it.
