Democratic debate: Fiery exchanges over costs of health care

13 Septembre, 2019, 07:56 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

The third Democratic debate seemed to end in a 10-way tie.

The two debates this summer did nothing to dislodge former Vice President Joe Biden from the top of the polls, but the field has begun to winnow and voters are increasingly tuning in, potentially giving challengers an opening in the ABC News-sponsored face off. There were more attacks on President Donald Trump than on each other.

Biden took on the most fire, but parried it and, as front-runner, benefits the most from a no-decision. Sen. Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were both crisp but got lost on the crowded stage at times. Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) endorsed a Medicare buy-in, without picking up any flack from his competitors. Amy Klobuchar, New Jersey Sen.

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang made a proposal that sounded like paying doctors a flat rate per patient, though the specifics were unclear.

The likely result: little change in a primary that has been remarkably static for months.

Sidestepping the opportunity to attack Biden, Warren chose to be gracious - complimenting the work of the Obama administration on health care.

At the center of the stage will be front runners former Vice President Joe Biden and Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Sanders' argument is that most USA households would pay less overall under his system, even if their taxes go up. Biden's health care plan, according to his campaign website, would insure "more than an estimated 97% of Americans". Biden punctuated the point with one of the quotes of the night: "For a socialist, you've got a lot more confidence in corporate America than I do".

Buttigieg piled on Sanders, too. "Why don't you?" he asked Sanders. It forced Biden to pause on stage until they were escorted out. She would not - at the moderator's prompting - say that middle class Americans' taxes would go up, but she defended her plan.

"We can not ask our military to keep solving problems that can not be solved militarily", she said. Castro said, an apparent dig at Biden's advanced age - he is 76 - and well-documented tendency to misspeak and mix up his words. "They said that was true". He continued to suggest Biden didn't remember what he'd just said about his own plan.

He added, "I'm for Barack", emphasizing his idea that former President Obama's "Obamacare" should be updated, not replaced.

Answering a question about what some of the candidates were proposing for healthcare policy, Castro said Biden's plan would leave10 million people uninsured by requiring people to opt into health insurance.

"Play the radio, make sure the television, excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the, make sure that kids hear words, a kid coming from a very poor school, a very poor background will hear 4 million words fewer spoken by the time we get there", Biden said.
