Sanders added onto Podesta's Tweet Monday, "If you ever want to work for a campaign that shares your values on health care, there's always room at Bernie 2016."

Sanders is proposing a "Medicare for all" single-payer health care plan, which, particularly before the implementation of Obamacare, many liberals favored.

During her presidential campaign, Clinton has suggested Sanders' plan amounts to a tax hike for the middle class and in a speech this week, suggested that it was a "risky deal" that would turn "over your and my health insurance to governors."

Sanders campaign spokesman Michael Briggs told the Washington Post that the Vermont senator's plan would put forth national legislation that all the states would follow in offering health care coverage.

"Secretary Clinton is inaccurate in suggesting that Republican governors would be able to circumvent the law and deny implementation in their states," he said.
