Senator Ted Cruz on Hannity Show ripped the first Democratic debate to shreds saying ‘the clown car is broken.’
The Senator stressed on Democrats extreme agenda at the first debate where majority of the candidates advocated for open borders, late-term abortion and free everything.
Below is a highlight of the debate:
Elizabeth Warren said she’d abolish private insurance, while Amy Klobuchar questioned “kicking half of America off of their health insurance.” Julian Castro attacked Beto O’Rourke for not supporting proposals to treat border crossings as civil and not criminal issues. And nearly everyone on stage went after President Donald Trump at one point.
The first Democratic Debate of the 2020 election quickly divided the 10 candidates on stage Wednesday night from those supporting more progressive proposals to those who chose a more moderate path, even as they broadly agreed on their goals.
Moderated by “Today” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, NBC Nightly News host Lester Holt, “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and “Noticias Telemundo” host José Diaz-Balart, the debate was held in Miami.
In the early moments of the debate, a couple candidates ducked the moderators’ attempts to get them to criticize fellow Democrats. O’Rourke, for example, declined to say whether he supported a marginal individual tax rate of 70% — first proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez— on individuals who earn more than $10 million per year.
But the debate soon turned heated, as their policy differences were put under a heat lamp.
Along with Warren, Klobuchar, Castro and O’Rourke, the debate featured Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan and former Maryland Rep. John Delaney.
