In New Haven on Monday, a fourth-year Yale medical student named Liza Goldman approached us excitedly to report on a conversation she had with the New York Senator on the rope line.
According to Goldman, she told Clinton, “I’m sure you know that single-payer would save billions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
Clinton, Goldman says, responded in agreement but said, “It’s not politically feasible.”
So Goldman offered her a hypothetical: “Would you sign it if it came across your desk?”
“She said yes, and shook my hand,” Goldman said.
A Clinton spokesman did not get back to us about whether Clinton remembers the conversation the same way.
