Democratic debate: candidates clash on healthcare and race


So how much is it going to cost? When you ask Bernie that –
I’ll ask him again tonight sometime – if you ask Bernie that,
he says: “Go figure. I don’t know.
We’ll find out.” I think that was on CBS, he said:
“We’ll find out.” Or something to that effect. Imagine you’re going to unite
the country, walking into the Congress saying: “I got this bill, it’s going
to provide Medicare for everybody. I can’t tell you how much
it’s going to cost. We’ll find out later. It’s likely to be double everything
we spend in federal government.” Who do you think is going to get
that passed? I busted my neck getting Obamacare
passed, getting every Democratic vote. I know how hard it is. – Senator Sanders.
[Applause] Well, for a start, what the studies show,
if we do what Joe wants we’ll be spending some $50 trillion
on healthcare over the next ten years. – I keep listening to this same debate
and it is not real. It is not real, Bernie, because two thirds
of the Democrats in the senate are not on your bill and because
it would kick 149 million Americans off their current health insurance
in four years. You said, Pete, as you were campaigning
through Iowa as three of us were jurors in that impeachment hearing, you said
it was exhausting to watch and that you wanted to turn the channel
and watch cartoons. It is easy to go after Washington
because that’s a popular thing to do. I just … I don’t think that’s what people
want right now. We have a newcomer in the White House
and look where it got us. I think having some experience
is a good thing. – Joe, I’m asking you to come with me
and the legislative black caucus and disavow Dick Harpootlian
and what he had to say. It was wrong and I’m asking you
to join us. Be on the right side. – I’m asking you to join me and join
in the support I have from the overwhelming number of
that black caucus. I have more support in South Carolina
in the black caucus and the black community
than anybody else. – And how do you explain that increase
in black arrests under your leadership? Well, the reality is, on my watch
drug arrests in South Bend were lower than the national average. The overall rate was lower
than the national average. – No, there was an increase.
The year before you were in office it was lower, once you became in office
in 2012, that number went up. In 2018, the last number of year that we
have a record for, that number was still up. – Yep. And one of the strategies that
our community adopted was to target when there were cases
where there was gun violence and gang violence, which was slaughtering
so many in our community. – Senator Warren, is that a substantial
answer from Mayor Buttigieg? – No.

  1. Trump became King of the North American Union when he signed USMCA into law and gave Americas sovereignty away.
    The TPP was also repackaged in the USMCA.
    Trump was the last President in the USA.
    King Trump 2020 and beyond.

  2. It is a strange system that they have in America. Less than 12 months from the election the opposition spend weeks and months in high profile attacks on each other.

  3. Waste of woke air, bickering children, none of the people on that stage will be president. thoughts and prayers to the Washington post, BBC and Guardian when Trump does it again. It's ok though, they can all "learn to code". I'm in the UK – I didn't like trump in 2015, but dislike all constant dirty democrat tricks during the election and the years since way more. Now I back him, all this has had the opposite effect. Democrats are as screwed as Labour. How about talking about things that people outside of twitter are interested in, twitter isn't global sentiment and you might stand a chance in 2028/32.

  4. If Democrats are stupid enough to nominate Pete or Bernie we deserve to lose. Elizabeth Warren thinks she deserves to win because she has a vagina and there are many who think it would be cute to have a gay guy with a husband in the White House. Folks, that is a fantasy. We need a candidate that can win and I think that candidate is Mike Bloomberg.

  5. WHAT THE PRESIDENT AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE PUT TOGETHER FOR AMERICA, AND NOT ONE OF YOU WEASELS, AND I DO MEAN WEASELS, WOULD BE ABLE TO HANDLE WHAT TRUMP HAS PUT TOGETHER, WANT TO JUST SIT IN THE DRIVER SEAT TO RUN THE SHOW. NONE OF YOU HAVE THE FORESIGHT OR INTELLIGENCE LIKE TRUMP TO SEE WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS. IF POSSIBLE TRUMP SHOULD SIGN INTO LEGISLATION THAT A PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE "TENURE" FOR THE OFFICE, LIKE FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT DID. BUT THE DEMS WOULD BE LOSING EVEN MORE LOBBYISTS MONIES. THEY WOULD BE CRYING AND SCREAMING AND TRYING TO FIND FAULT WITH A BOOMING ECONOMY. WHICH THEY CANNOT PROVE TO THEMSELVES………THE SEWER RATS, LIKE ADAM SHIFF, JERRY NADLER, NANCY PELOSI AND THE LIKE CAN KISS THE DEMOCRATIC GOODBY AFTER THIS MESS, THOSE PEOPLE WON'T BE AROUND MUCH LONGER. VERY SHAMEFUL AND YOUR TRUST AND CREDIBILITY ALONG WITH YOUR CORRUPTNESS MAKES YOU A MOLE IN THE HOLE, OUT OF DESPERATION. TRUMPS ARE ALREADY STARTING TO ROLL WITH TRANSFERS FROM TOP LEVEL SECURITY EMPLOYEES ,TO A SMALLER LESS IMPORTANT JOB, SO IF THEY CAN'T HANDLE THIS , THEY SHOULD SEEK OTHER EMPLOYMENT OUTSIDE THE GOVERNMENT.

  6. The guardian has cut off Bernie’s answer to Biden😤…he immediately goes on to explain Medicare for all gets rid of private healthcare premiums and saves taxpayers money compared to the status quo

  7. “We have a newcomer in the White House and look where it got us.” ??? America is doing great and getting better everyday. You can’t fix a broken country in a short few years.

  8. Healthcare: People should either pay for insurance, or PAY CASH if they want care. If not, they SHOULDN’T get care. Doctors should be able to deny care, if people are deadbeats: grocery stores don’t have to give away food to those who don’t pay for it!

  9. From what I understand they didn't have the United States flag showing anywhere at that debate, these people are just plain evil for our country, we need to eradicate the Democrat Party from our government once and for all

  10. Do the people of NH understand that Bernie and Yang are communists, that Buttcrack is gay, that Warren lies whenever her mouth is moving, that Joe has never had any support from Obama… that the others have no chance. This is just a race to see who sinks to the bottom and all are near that point.

  11. 🇺🇸🤬
    I am getting sick of how all candidates are DISRESPECTING the people they are responsible to:
    1) debates should be un-timed and uninterrupted .
    2) candidates should be required to fully elucidate their thoughts and policies.
    3) Panels of academics should be asking questions… not puppets with ear pieces.
    4) Debates should go on as long as they have to.

  12. This is soooooooo funny!🤣🤣 they are all a joke. They are all fighting to see who gets destroyed by Trump!

    Trump 2020 easy win baby!

  13. Waw… All the democratic debates are ridiculous and pathetic. And trust me, I really pray for a democratic candidate election.

  14. It's ironic how the Democrats defend NOT arresting people for drug crimes. What planet do these people live on? It's like the twilight zone.

    Democratic candidates zero in on Buttigieg and Sanders at tense debate ► https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/feb/07/bernie-sanders-pete-buttigieg-debate-new-hampshire-iowa-latest

  16. Obamacare insurance companies are making the best profits ever. Burnie Insurance is a cool $75 trillion half of your paycheck will take care of that. Plus your second Amendment and your 1st amendment, and government run everything, including you. Then the whats his name who came out on top.
    We have to look at the company who counts the votes??? Give up, the one we all love who loves Planned parenthood, and gay rights, yep Hillary Clinton it's her company. But remember the Race is not the President its about the House and Senate seats.

  17. YANG is the only one who will END ABJECT POVERTY. Survival crimes of thefts are going up as the homeless/penniless become more and more desperate. Perhaps you don’t need $24K/year but others do! Vote for their relief! Vote YANG 2020🧢!!!

  18. Bernie I call him the humpback of notre dame he talks like a pastor he should be in church collecting money from the poor.

  19. My son’s medical deductible is $1,800 before his medical insurance pays anything. Once the $1,800 deductible is used, the following year, he has to come up with another $1,800 deductible. That’s expensive but he only pays $14 every payday for medical insurance. His prior medical insurance (through the Marketplace) he paid $308 per month but his deductible wasn’t high. The following year, the insurance rates went up to $508 per month with a low deductible but my son couldn’t afford $508 per month for medical insurance. My son was making $9.35 an hour so he lived with us (parents). If someone could make the current medical insurances more affordable without taking most of your paycheck and without high deductibles.

  20. I'm not a Biden fan but he is right about these fantasy budgets. Bernie is simply out of his mind. Maybe he's on drugs and hence can't do math.

  21. I have heard in a previous debate, the democrats choosing carefully
    their candidate in order to defy Trump and, so they say, his
    feminist/racist/homophobic politics … then I have heard the same
    democrats discussing winning the chances if their candidate would be
    black or hispanic or woman or homosexual. Hmm !

  22. For campaigning on wokeness and gender issues (which are controversial to say the least)
    Trump has gained support while they try to out woke each other

  23. I'm thinking that we need something like peach care you pay to the state some like $50 per month and will help with the expenses but Obama care is killing me because I have to pay 250 per month and if a got kids an other 150 per child or get penalized when i do my taxas and end up been the same amount but they take it all in 1 time and you don't get the benefit so I'm whith Sanders Medicare for all and pay $50 per month with all your family that will be great

  24. If you don't know who you go into vote for you just go agents what the media say like right now they going against Sanders I'm gonna vote for him because he is not a puppet so they don't want I president that don't play ball so that's why they trying to get him out, they think out of sight out of mind

  25. Pretty hilarious the Democratic party has reverted to all agreeing on openly highering taxes and banning guns……no thanks. Im a democrat who will be voting for trump

  26. Joe looks like a corpse that crammed a set of teeth in its skull. PLEASE, family or friends, tell him he needs to spend some time with his grandkids before dementia robs him of what time he has left.
    He is an embarrassment to himself and his "party." And they wonder why Obama hasn't endorsed him??

  27. "sen. Warren is that a substantial answer from buttigieg"

    I thought this was an even platform. Why did u give Warren that easy loaded question that was meant to jab at Buttigieg
