At least one grizzled Wall Street veteran is not taking Bernie Sanders' anti-finance sector rhetoric lying down...

Stumping for her mother for the first time in 2016 on Tuesday, Chelsea Clinton directly criticized Bernie Sanders on health care policy, echoing Hillary Clinton's recent attacks on the Vermont senator.

That's right, the former McKinsey consultant who also worked for Marc Lasry at Avenue Capital, is really not Feeling the Bern... Mmm, k?

"Sen. Sanders wants to dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the CHIP program, dismantle Medicare, and dismantle private insurance," she said during a campaign stop in New Hampshire. "I worry if we give Republicans Democratic permission to do that, we'll go back to an era -- before we had the Affordable Care Act -- that would strip millions and millions and millions of people off their health insurance."

And while Chelsea is no longer "On the Street" (though she is married to hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky) she's still pretty sharp with numbers, so she's got some questions for Bernie...

"There's a $19 trillion gap, give or take, in what Senator Sanders has proposed and how he he's articulated paying for his proposals.So that to me is troubling" the daughter of Secretary Clinton said.

So hey Bernie, if you're having troubles making the numbers work on your "Tax Wall Street to Pay for College Plan," maybe see if you can get like a white shoe management consultant to come check your math.

Ask Hillary, she knows someone.
