Sen. Bernie Sanders headed west to drum up support for his recently unveiled "Medicare for All" proposal Friday, but first trained his sights on the Obamacare repeal bill currently gripping Congress.
Sanders (I-Vt.), whose speech was the cornerstone of a California Nurses Assn. gathering in San Francisco, blasted the Republican plan led by Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina as "horrific legislation."
"How cruel, how immoral it is, to say to those millions of Americans, we are going to take away that health insurance that keeps you alive," Sanders said.
