I remember he inserted an amendment to Obamacare to increase funding for community health centers and today he let us know how that's going:
Sen. Bernie Sanders announced on Thursday that the federal government designated three new community health centers in Vermont. The announcement will increase from eight to 11 the number of health centers that will provide primary care for some 163,000 patients throughout the state. Nationwide, the latest round of grants awarded today totaled $150 million for 236 new community health centers around the country to serve more than 1.25 million additional patients.

A Sanders provision in the Affordable Care Act authorized $11 billion to build, expand, and operate community health centers throughout the United States.
