During the most recent Democratic debate Democrats again disappointed many Americans even more than the left already does by stating that they were not only going to make sure they went to a single payer insurance Medicare for all type plan, but that they were also going to take away your AR-15 and AK-47 type rifles.
Both Senator Bernie Sanders (D) and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D) claimed they would put a single payer Medicare for all type plan in place at the cost of more than 30 trillion dollars. Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) asked them each how they would pay for it, and they each said the same thing, that they would make the wealthy pay for it and reduce the amount the middle class pays to do it. Senator Klobuchar sided with Biden in chiding Warren and Sanders for attempting to put a single payer healthcare plan for all in place on the backs of Americans who already have insurance.
Robert Francis O’Rourke (Beto) said he was coming for your guns, if elected he would make sure to take away all AR-15 and AK-47 style rifles from all Americans, pretty much assuring he will not be elected. Not everyone echoed his sentiment during the debate, but many clapped and knodded, which in and of itself was worrisome.
Julian Castro attacked Biden’s memory in what looked to be an attempt to prop his failing campaign up. Senator Cory Booker (D) later echoed the sentiment on Twitter, saying that Democrats cannot afford someone who in a long campaign cannot get the ball across the line. Most of the debate centered on each candidate trying to out Anti-Trump the others, with Tulsi Gabbard (D) most notably missing from the debate stage amid controversy that the DNC is again “fixing” the primary for it’s perceived favorites Warren and Harris.
