Sanders campaign selling ‘I wrote the damn bill’ stickers after viral debate exchange

Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) presidential campaign was quick to seize on a fiery moment from Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, selling “I Wrote The Damn Bill” stickers after his confrontation with Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio). 

Sanders maintained during the forum that his “Medicare for All” plan would offer more comprehensive health care coverage for people who would eventually lose their private plans, noting that it would include dental and vision plans for seniors.{mosads}

Ryan, his presidential opponent, responded, “You don’t know that, Bernie.”

“I do know that, I wrote the damn bill,” Sanders fired back as the crowd burst into applause.

The White House hopeful was referencing to the Medicare for All bill he’s introduced in the Senate.

Shortly after the now-viral exchange, the Sanders campaign tweeted that a donation of any amount would get the supporter a sticker.

The candidates participated in a longer debate about the federal government’s role in providing health care.

Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have both supported the Medicare for All platform.

The two senators both received more time and more opportunities to speak than any other candidates during Tuesday’s debate.
