Ryan asked whether Sanders could guarantee that benefits of Medicare-for-All for union members, who he said would lose their private health care, would be as good as the benefits that their representatives fought to negotiate.Sanders replied that the benefits would be better because of the comprehensiveness of Medicare-for-All, before Ryan cut him off.“You don’t know that, Bernie,” Ryan interjected.“I do know it. I wrote the damn bill,” Sanders shot back, to roaring applause.Supporters can purchase the sticker by donating any amount of money to the Sanders campaign. The average contribution for the sticker is $9.57, according to his campaign.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
