Democratic presidential candidates Senator Bernie Sanders (L) and Hillary Clinton participate in the PBS NewsHour debate at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on February 11, 2016Democratic presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders locked horns early in their high-stakes debate, with the former secretary of state savaging her rival over his plan for universal health care. "Based on every analysis that I can find by people who are sympathetic to the goal, the numbers don't add up and many people will be worse off than they are right now," Clinton said in assailing Sanders' claim that working-class Americans could actually save money by implementing his single payer health coverage plan. The candidates split the first two nomination contests of the race, with Clinton earning a very narrow victory in Iowa but Sanders trouncing her in New Hampshire earlier this week.

Democratic U.S. presidential candidates Senator Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrive on stage ahead of the PBS NewsHour Democratic presidential candidates debate in MilwaukeeBy John Whitesides MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused rival Bernie Sanders in a debate on Thursday of misleading Americans about the costs and viability of his healthcare plan, saying he was making promises "that cannot be kept." In their sixth presidential debate, Clinton said Sanders' proposal for a single-payer, Medicare-for-all healthcare plan would mean dismantling Obamacare and triggering another intense political struggle. "You need to level with people about what they will have at the end of the process you are proposing," Clinton said. "That's a promise that cannot be kept." Sanders said he would not dismantle the healthcare plan known as Obamacare and was simply moving to provide what most industrialized countries have - healthcare coverage for all.
