Sanders clashes with Tapper: ‘Your question is a Republican talking point’

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) clashed with CNN moderator Jake Tapper during the Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday night, accusing him of using Republican talking points in his questions about “Medicare for All.”

Tapper asked the candidates if they supported raising taxes on the middle class to pay for Medicare for All.

“Thank you, senator, your time is up,” Tapper said.

“They’ll be advertising tonight with that talking point,” Sanders added.
