Clinton goes after Sanders on taxes, health care

AMES, Iowa (AP) -

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."
