Podesta tweeted in November 2013: “Just applied online for Medicare. Took 5 minutes. Single payer anyone?”

Sanders has said he supports a single-payer, Medicare-for-all bill. 


The senator has introduced single-payer bills in previous sessions of Congress, and has argued that his proposal would be cost effective. 

In a fundraising pitch, he has criticized Clinton for taking millions of dollars from the pharmaceutical industry for her presidential run.

As of late December, Clinton had raised about $1.1 million from the pharmaceuticals or health products industries this cycle, according to data from Open Secrets.
