Bernie Sanders makes stop in Covington, Kentucky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Senator Bernie Sanders made stops in Kentucky and West Virginia Saturday.

The Vermont Senator is trying to get Senator Mitch McConnell to ditch his efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. 

Sanders says getting rid of Obamacare would throw 22 million Americans off health insurance.

He says it would be a disaster for the country, and an even worse disaster for Kentucky. 

While in Covington, he also spoke about how repealing the ACA would make the opioid epidemic even worse. 

Meanwhile, the Kentucky Republican Party calls Sanders' single-payer health care proposal another example of an "unrealistic and radical agenda."
