Clinton goes after Sanders on taxes, health care

Hillary Rodham Clinton is offering fresh criticism of Bernie Sanders’ proposals. She says she’s the only candidate who wouldn’t raise taxes on middle-class families or scrap President Barack Obama’s health care law.
    
Clinton is speaking at a fall barbecue with Democrats following Saturday’s debate in Iowa.
    
She says taxes are a "defining issue" in the race and she was the only Democrat in the debate who wouldn’t raise taxes on middle-class families to pay for her proposals.
    
Without mentioning Sanders by name, she says Democrats shouldn’t suggest the nation "start all over again" with the health care system. Sanders backs a single-payer health system based on Medicare.
    
Clinton was joined by her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton. He joked after watching the debates, "I think I’m going to vote for Hillary."
