Bernie Goes Too Far – Top GOP Official: “Now It’s Personal”

Rep. Dan Crenshaw blasted Sen. Bernie Sanders after the Vermont independent weighed in on veteran’s issues.

“Watching Bernie pander to different groups to get their vote has always disgusted me, but now it’s personal,” the Texas Republican said Tuesday on Twitter. “I didn’t go to war so that you would take care of me, Bernie. I went because I wanted to serve and our country needed it.”

Crenshaw, a 35-year-old Navy SEAL veteran, was responding to Sanders stating, “If you can’t afford to take care of your veterans, then don’t go to war.”

A moment at a Sanders campaign event went viral last week after a veteran talked about how he was considering killing himself because of debt over healthcare costs.

“So how are you going to pay off?” Sanders, 78, asked the 58-year-old Navy veteran, John Weigel.

“I can’t, I can’t. I’m going to kill myself,” Weigel responded.

“Hold it, John. Stop it. You’re not going to kill yourself,” Sanders said.

Sanders took to Twitter the same night to rail against the healthcare system. “Some in Washington say I am too angry about our broken health care system,” he said. “I hear stories like this every day in America. My question is: why aren’t they angry about it?”
