Hillary Clinton has a new put-down for Bernie Sanders on her media tour promoting her campaign memoir

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday is set to introduce his Medicare-for-all bill, part of a burgeoning Democratic push for single-payer-style healthcare that has picked up several influential endorsements from potential 2020 presidential hopefuls.
