CNN’s Jake Tapper showed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) a 2013 clip of the senator criticizing Republicans for trying to repeal Obamacare with a government shutdown.

“What they are saying to the American people tonight is, ‘Well maybe we lost the presidential election, maybe we lost seats in the Senate, lost seats in the House, it doesn’t matter,'” Sanders said in the 2013 clip of a Senate floor speech. “We can bring the government to a shutdown.”

Tapper pointed out that Republicans are accusing Sanders of hypocrisy for now supporting Democratic efforts to shut down the government.

The senator claimed the situation was different because President Obama was in office. “They wanted to repeal Obamacare,” he said of the 2013 shutdown. “Obama was the president. You know what? Obama was not going to repeal Obamacare.”
