Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ office crafted and published a video attacking Fox News commentators for mocking Sanders’ claims that the proposed Senate health care bill — which was recently shelved due to a lack of votes — would cause “thousands” of people to die.
Sanders’ Twitter account posted the video, which reached almost three minutes in length, with the caption: “Fox News may not like it, but these are the facts: Thousands of our fellow Americans will die if the Republican health care bill is passed.”
