Democrats clash over moderate and progressive policies during debate
E2020 presidential candidates are back on the campaign Trail after last night’s Showdown. Moderate candidates, like Vice President Joe Biden, facing off against progressives like Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren at Okie, takes a closer look at some of the night’s most memorable moment. We have a problem Battle of the Big 10 Democrats in Houston, focused especially on the top issue of concern Healthcare, and how to pay for it, Biden and other moderate Senators, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders for how they would pay for their medicare-for-all plan. My friend, you got insurance they’re going to get back., not my way or the highway Asian. So I know a lot of doctors and they tell me that I’m being sued and navigating the insurance bureaucracy, former housing secretary Hulu on Castro, accused of flip-flopping on whether people who can’t afford Healthcare would be automatically enrolled in Biden’s healthcare plan and 4. Minutes ago. I mean I can’t believe that you had to buy the universe at historically. Black University included calls for stricter gun control in the wake of two recent mass shootings in the state of background checks and gun licensing, finding our children to El Paso and Beto. Love you for standing so courageously in the midst of that tragedy was shot by an Ar-15 an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa and Midland ambulances to get to them in time. He’Ll. Yes, we’re going to take your AR-15 former. Vice President Joe Biden Center is Elizabeth, Warren and Bernie Sanders. We didn’t see that I think we still have that top-tier. We were looking for for half the clash between Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren since they were at Center Stage for the first time in this campaign on the same stage together, important Health Care in the beginning, different vision for the future of the party and for healthcare. Elizabeth Warren, very supportive of medicare-for-all Joe Biden, of course, not willing to go that far. Instead wanting to build beyond that, we didn’t really see much from the two of them. I would say that someone that was needing to kind of show he was back in this race was Beto O’Rourke, and he did that. He was on home tour here in Texas, his native state, and he was able to talk about his recent experiences in El Paso. With the shootings there and talked about the issue of gun safety in America, about gun control, arguing for some pretty significant measure, some very controversial ones for sure., But he was able to show a case for his campaign, show that he was passionate about this particular subject. And show that he’s got some momentum get back. In this thing I kind of wondered if people were going to going to be taking aim at Vidant because he’s in the lead and Daniel. That’S what you do you target the guy who’s who’s that in the spot, that you want to be pretty much as it was before. The debate is very different. Fighting in this debate than we’d seen in pasta, face down to the point where he would stop and if he was mid-sentence we saw him yesterday said no, I’m going to go over time. Like my other fellow candidates here to, he seemed to have defenses ready for attacks on his record and attacks on him personally, and also going the offense on some subjects as well, particularly the issue of healthcare and Bernie Sanders plan. Wanting to contrast his with the the Vermont Senators, it was really interesting to his reaction to Huli on Castro, who was on the other side of the stage going after Joe Biden, pretty relentlessly bringing up that very sensitive subject, or at least alluding to it. The very sensitive subject of Joe Biden’s age asking him if he remembered what he had said two minutes ago. That was something that was very risky for the Hue on Castro campaign, because we’ve seen other campaigns try to go after Joe Biden on the debate stage and see little long-term return on those attacks. In fact, we’ve seen Canada to go after Biden either fall in the polls later on or drop out entirely. So that was an interesting, a very risky strategy and we’re already seeing some negative reaction to that. But that was why I thought Joe Biden was was in a different kind of position. Then he Ben and pasta base defensive himself, I’m kind of ready and prepared to answer a lot of questions. Isn’T it and I think, I’m curious what the Biden Camp thinks about how the former vice president answers questions that are generally elicited to get a reaction of issues that are facing people today that they’re questioning. That was why Lindsey Davis asked him about his comments that he made 40 years ago on the issue of slavery in the legacy of slavery in this country. He backed in 40 years ago said he is not going to be responsible for something that happened 300 years ago was to answer whether or not he still believes that instead, he sort of pivoted to a question to answer about schools and parents and social workers, and Ultimately, good players and it never really answered the question and it sort of makes me wonder. Sometimes if the Biden can thinks you know our supporters, the supporters and which include young people. But we don’t need to dress those kind of questions, because the people who are supporting us are not that interested of Joe Biden and they pointed his significant and enduring support among African-American voters, especially amongst older African-American voters. And, as you guys know, I’ve been on the ground with fighting and a lot of these early States, Iowa and New Hampshire in South Carolina. When I was with him recently, I asked a lot of Voters kind of what they made about Joe Biden’s gas, and a lot of them said that it made him more human that he was more relatable and he still has really a significant support. Their even as he’s falling behind and some of those earlier States, at least according to our CBS News, Rap Battle Ground tracker pull, but they certainly think that this is an issue where candidates other candidates have tried to go after him. On his record here. Remember Kamala. Harris and the very first debate successfully protect his record and brought it back to her own personal story. We saw her rise in the polls, but she hasn’t really been able to keep up so far. She has since Fallen Cory. Booker was very critical of Joe Biden’s. History on criminal justice, particularly that 1994 crime Bill and he’s really didn’t gain momentum, either from attacking Biden on that issue. That’S not to say that this is not a significant issue for the former vice president moving forward, but as it stands now, as we’re talking to voters now and as we’re seeing that reaction, it hasn’t really had a negative impact relief, not an impact that is causing Him to give up that front run status still a very long campaign, still several months to go before. Voters actually start weighing in, but as it stands now, the campaign at least as they tell us, I feel comfortable in that position all right Caitlin. Thank you.
