The debate - involving 10 candidates on July 30 and another 10 the next evening in Detroit - was the second of a planned 12 debates as the party selects its nominee for the 2020 election. "Everything landed on his desk but locusts", Biden said of Obama. "If they don't, they can buy into the Biden plan".
Most Americans agree their health-care system is ridiculously expensive and shamefully unequal.
A recent Marist Poll shows that over 60 percent of people believe that decriminalizing border-crossings and eliminating private insurance for Americans is a "bad idea"-positions both defended by the senators". It's not enough for some young voters, including the young black voters Biden needs to push to the polls if he wants to avoid the fate of Hillary Clinton, another Obama loyalist.
Biden also came under fire after he declined to share the details of conversations he had with with Obama over immigration deportations, only offering that the former president "moved to fundamentally change the system" but that "much more has to be done".
Bottom line: It's true Harris has a more disruptive plan for health insurers, a group that has seen rising insurance profits under Obamacare.
Wednesday night's Democratic presidential candidates' debate was marked by infighting over the specifics of the candidates' health insurance proposals. On both nights of the second debate, multiple candidates attacked the present health-care status quo created by the Affordable Care Act, Obama's signature legislation, by demanding its dismantlement and replacement with Medicare-for-all, isolating Biden as ObamaCare's primary defender. Newborns and uninsured people would be enrolled into the public Medicare plan during a 10-year phase in period, which Harris argues gives the country time to transition. The hopefuls for the nomination are running against the president in order to raise their profile and win disaffected Democrats to their banner. "We want the understanding of what will be different, of what your plan is".
Harris is solidified her position as an adversary of Biden Wednesday, clashing with him on a number of issues. They attacked his record on race and criminal justice, also on immigration from his years in Congress and as Barack Obama's vice president. "'I'll probably have a target on my back, so maybe I should get a red suit so I'll be easy to find.' I didn't need a red suit to be easy to find, it turns out", she said.
Booker's gain and Harris' pain fine with Joe Biden.
US withdraws from Reagan-era nuclear arms agreement with Russian Federation
Moscow denies it has violated the treaty with its new 9M729 system and says Washington is withdrawing to pursue a new arms race. Washington announced past year it was withdrawing from the pact, accusing Russian Federation of failing to comply with it.
Biden said he'd rather Democrats focus on the future, saying his old stances are being brought out of their historic context.
Shapiro said Harris was "incredibly defensive" about the moment in a post-debate interview, where she mocked Gabbard's low polling numbers and referred to herself as a "top-tier candidate".
"She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana", said Gabbard.
Harris blocked evidence that would have freed inmates on death row, Gabbard said.
"The cost of doing nothing is far too expensive", she said, adding: "Your plan does not cover everyone in America".
The former vice president said no. But I'm deeply concerned about this record.
Laughable as it may seem, Biden is the not-crazy one in the Democrat field. "But these debates, that's the kind of thing it rewards". "And they deserve something better than a bully in the White House". Officers working for SecurAmerica protect Bedrock buildings downtown Detroit and went on strike in June to protest alleged unfair labor practices. "And secondly, it says that you can not raise that price beyond the cost of inflation from this point on". "Maybe if they continue to change their attitudes and actually work with @realDonaldTrump they could do some good for American workers for a change", he added. "What we should do is flood the zone to make sure we have people to make those decisions quickly", Biden said.
