With Hillary Clinton losing in the polls in both Iowa and New Hampshire, the still-presumptive Democratic nominee has stepped up the attacks on challenger Bernie Sanders. In recent days Clinton and her surrogates have been attacking Sanders on the issue of healthcare.
On Tuesday Clinton's daughter Chelsea took on Sanders by name while campaigning for her mother in New Hampshire, saying she never thought she would be debating Obamacare inside the Democratic Party.
"Senator Sanders wants to dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the CHIP program, dismantle Medicare and private insurance," Chelsea Clinton said.
Sanders has long been a supporter of universal or single-payer healthcare, the kind of government healthcare practiced in Canada, Britain and several European countries. In response to the Clinton attacks Sanders released an old photo on Twitter.
The photo shows Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders sitting across from each other; underneath the photo is a handwritten note and autograph from Hillary which reads, "To Bernie Sanders with thanks for your commitment to real health care access for all Americans."
Clinton has seen her polling numbers slip consistently in recent weeks. She now trails Sanders in the first two states to vote while the national contest continues to narrow.
