CNN published a fact check on Friday against Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), saying he has repeated the same “false claim” about health care spending since at least 2009.

Fact checker Daniel Dale said Sanders has falsely claimed multiple times over the last decade that the United States spends “twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation on Earth.” Politifact rated the claim “false” in 2009 and 2015, according to CNN.
