Hillary Clinton to Bernie Sanders: Explain Why You Want To "Start All Over Again" On Obamacare


Hillary Clinton speaks with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America about the president's State of the Union address, her plan to improve Obamacare, and her concern that Bernie Sanders wants to throw away that "historic achievement of President Obama" and "start all over again" with a single-payer health care system.

HILLARY CLINTON: We're now in the area where we go from generalization to specifics. I have said what I would do to improve the Affordable Care Act, I have laid out specifics about out of pocket costs, about perscription drug costs.

What Sen. Sanders has said, and it is his perfect right to say it, is he wants a single-payer national health insurance system.


Tell the American people how much that will cost them. Because every analysis I'm aware of says it is going to cost middle class families and working families.

And also explain why after this historic achievement of President Obama. We've been fighting for affordable health care since Harry Truman, and now he wants to start all over again.

These are legitimate questions. That's what people are asking me out on IA and NH and they deserve answers.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Sen. Sanders says you are starting to draw these contrasts because you are getting nervous.

HILLARY CLINTON: I have a different rhythm about how a campaign goes... We have spent months now laying out my policies. And now we are in the sprint and it is time to draw contrasts.
