Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, whose campaign was sidelined last fall when he suffered a heart attack, says he won't release his full medical records -- going back on a promise he made four months ago.

At a town hall event in Washington, D.C., Tuesday night, Sanders said he doesn't intend to publicize any more of his health records -- adding that he has so far released more than any other Democratic candidate.

"I think we have released a detailed medical report and I'm comfortable on what we have done," he said. When asked if he will release more, he added, "I don't think we will, no."

Sanders, who will be 79 by election day, was hospitalized on Oct. 1 after leaving a campaign fundraiser in Las Vegas with chest pains. Doctors said he had a heart attack and Sanders remained in a hospital for several days, effectively suspending major campaign activity in the interim.

The Vermont senator released three letters from physicians in December that described him as being in good health.

His refusal is an about-face from his position last October, when he said American voters "have a right to know about the health of a senator, somebody who's running for president of the United States -- full disclosure."

If he's elected, Sanders would be, by far, the oldest candidate to win the presidency. Trump is presently the oldest, as he was 70 when he won the White House in 2016. In fact, no U.S. president has ever occupied the White House at any time at Sanders' age. The eldest, Ronald Reagan, ended his presidency at age 77.

But he believes Trump’s tax records should be completely open and public. Hypocrisy, anyone??

A simple and pertinent question:

What is Bernie trying to hide from his potential voters?

Voting for Bernie is voting for a dead man. The chances of living out even one four-year term is practically nil.

We MUST litigate this issue until the cows come home. His medical information is a RIGHT of the people to know about.

He should pay off a doctor to say he's the healthiest person in the world like the idiot orange dotard did.

He shouldn’t have to disclose anything personal if he doesn’t want to.

If you are worried about his health, don’t vote for him.

Sorry, this is a deal killer for me and it should be for you as well. The man is 78 years old and he just had a heart attack. He’d be pushing 90 assuming two terms.

Remind you of anyone? - Aka the Orange Blob who wrote a phony letter for his nutty personal physician that he’d be the healthiest president EVA??

Bernie was already our worst bet to beat Trump. We nominate him, and we will LOSE (which is why Donald & his Russian troll buddies are rooting for him).

Please THINK Dems. No old fuckers. No Democratic Socialists. No billionaires. Think centrist & younger. Two choices: Amy or Pete.

He's old. We know he may not last 4-8 years. There isnt a viable alternative. I wish there was a younger Bernie (maybe Gabbard but she never got traction) but there isn't.

He doesn't want the public to know he has no brain.

While easy on the eyes, Tulsi is a Putin/ Assad stooge. No thanks on either!

Bernie recently had a heart attack. It's amazing how Democrats will overlook the frailties of their masters while making a mountain out of a pimple on a Republican's ass.
