Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders spoke against the healthcare bill being considered by the U.S. Senate Sunday evening in Northern Kentucky.  The former presidential candidate addressed a crowd estimated at 2000.

Sanders says he doesn't understand why Kentucky senator and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Under Kentucky’s implementation of the federal law, the number of uninsured in the state fell from 20% to just under eight percent.
