Hillary Clinton exaggerated when she claimed Bernie Sanders “took about $200,000 from Wall Street firms” through the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

The Clinton campaign has made a series of misleading attacks on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ health care plan, saying he wants to “dismantle Medicare” and private insurance and that he would turn over “your and my health insurance to governors.” Not exactly.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says that “the 20 richest people in our country own more wealth than the bottom half of the American population — 150 million people.” We explain that statistic.
