The liberal senator couldn’t explain why he wanted universal health care for the country, when his home state didn’t have the program.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) couldn’t tell CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday why his home state of Vermont had not enacted universal health care while Sanders advocates for a national program.
“Politically, this is difficult,” Sanders said.
The Vermont senator then pointed to California as a test case for universal health care, before reverting to his usual talking points.
To enact their health care proposal, the California state government would have to double their state budget to account for the extra $200 billion in costs.
