Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” Sunday that as the House GOP-passed health care bill is debated behind closed doors in the Senate, Democrats should do “everything they can” to oppose the legislation in “any way” they can.

Sanders called the current bill the “worst piece of legislation” against working class people that he can remember in his political life in the Congress, and that the reason Republicans don’t want to bring debate out into the public is because it was a “disastrous bill.”
Today is just bonkers in politics, and the evening with waiting for polls to close for the governor’s race in Virginia between Ralph Northam and Tom Perriello. As the Birdies know, Our Revolution, John Podesta and Bernie Sanders have endorsed Tom Perriello.
