Among the senators grilling Secretary of Health & Human Services nominee Tom Price is Bernie Sanders, who disagreed with the congressman about the U.S. being a compassionate nation:

In the clip, Sanders told Price that just because somebody has access to something doesn’t mean they can get it, and used this comparison:
Sanders says "access" doesn't cut it "I have access to buying a 10 million dollar home, I don’t have the money to do that"

Price says he wants ppl to have "access to health care." Sanders says he has "access to buy a $10million home but I can't afford it."

Sanders could have thought that through a little more:
What with the upkeep on 3 homes valued at over $1 million and all. https://t.co/2qPfJpxaqu

@ChadPergram Well then how does he explain his new 3rd home on Lake Champlain?

So he bought 3 homes instead. Cool. https://t.co/EoDiwqer2i

Fact check: True. Sanders' 3rd home, that he bought last year, only cost $600k. https://t.co/3GFBYYsfVc

You’re gonna need a better comparison, Sen. Sanders.
