A Bernie Sanders surrogate confused viewers across America Tuesday; telling CNN there’s “money for whatever people want” and “it is going to come from somewhere.”
“Another issue that he did not address clearly was the exact cost of his Medicare for All plan. Less than nine months before folks go to the polls. Why isn’t there a straight answer for that question?” asked the CNN host.

“Let’s just be honest. There’s money for whatever people want to spend money on… It is going to come from somewhere,” she added.
