        only one candidate is God's answer to your prayers to God. The rest are liars who will make you have to pray more to God because they are selfish and represent their own benefit never your best interest and lie and say they care about you and have a plan.

          "Why Democrats Should Be Worried Elizabeth Warren Is The Frontrunner -
          Warren’s inability or unwillingness to answer questions about the cost
          of her major policy ideas is going to be a problem for Democrats"

          By John Daniel Davidson October 16, 2019
          The first big takeaway from the Democratic primary debate Tuesday night 15
          Oct 2019 was that Sen. Elizabeth Warren is now being treated like the
          frontrunner by her opponents. The second big takeaway is that the
          candidates’ angle of attack on Warren, together with her dismal
          performance under pressure, should have Democrats very worried that
          Warren could be their candidate in the general election in 2020.

          Warren was taken to task during the debate for evading basic questions about
          how she would pay for her signature Medicare-for-all health-care plan,
          and how she would implement her controversial—and constitutionally
          dubious—wealth tax. For a candidate who brags about having a policy plan
          for everything, it didn’t look good.

          Sen. Amy Klobuchar called Warren’s health-care plan a “pipe dream” and offered her a “reality
          check” on her wealth tax, attacks that were echoed and reinforced by the
          other candidates throughout the night. When Mayor Pete Buttigieg asked
          Warren, “yes or no,” whether her Medicare-for-all plan would raise taxes
          on the middle class, Warren hemmed and hawed, talked about her
          “principles,” and evaded giving a yes or no answer.

          Buttigieg and others seized on this, calling into question Warren’s trustworthiness.
          When Sen. Bernie Sanders jumped in to explain that his universal
          health-care plan would increase taxes, Klobuchar and Buttigieg noted
          that at least Sanders was being honest and straightforward about his
          plan. Through it all, Warren seemed defensive and taken aback that her
          fellow candidates were coming after her like this.

          The reason all this should concern Democrats is that if Warren can’t handle pointed
          questions about basic aspects of her major policy proposals in a primary
          debate, how is she going to weather the storms of the general election?
          If she can’t bring herself to admit that Medicare-for-all will mean
          higher taxes for everyone, which it certainly will, how will general
          election voters already skeptical of Washington be persuaded to trust
          her?

          Trump won a crowed GOP primary in 2016 in part by saying
          things no other candidate was willing to say and putting himself forward
          as an honest outsider who tells it like it is. If Democrats want to put
          someone up against Trump who can beat him at this game, their candidate
          had better have a credible answer for how he or she will pay for a $32
          trillion program that’s steadily losing support. The most recent poll
          from the Kaiser Family Foundation found just 51 percent now support
          Medicare-for-all, a two-point drop from last month and a five-point drop
          since April, even as the share of those who oppose it is growing.

          Questions about how Democrats plan to pay for these things are only going to
          intensify as we approach the general election, and as more Americans
          realize that they’ll certainly have to pay higher taxes for socialized
          health care and college, such policies will likely continue to lose
          support.

          Much has been made so far in the Democratic primary
          about “electability” versus “progressive bona fides,” with former vice
          president Joe Biden filling the role of the most electable Democrat in a
          one-on-one contest with Trump. Warren and Sanders, whose plans on
          everything from health care to the Green New Deal involve a massive
          expansion of government spending and authority over a sprawling array of
          activities, excite the Democratic Party’s progressive base.

          Now that Warren is the clear frontrunner, the problem facing the party is
          impossible to deny: the candidate who can win the primary by being
          furthest to the left is going to have serious problems in the general.

          The mainstream media aren’t doing Warren or Democrats any favors by
          continuing to treat her with kid gloves. The Washington Post’s Margaret
          Sullivan suggested that journalists’ questions about funding
          Medicare-for-all shouldn’t make Warren look bad or enable Republicans to
          exploit the issue. “Of course, it’s legitimate to dig into the costs,
          but not in a way that creates a nice GOP campaign ad, and misses the
          larger lens of overall costs. (Warren, notably, refused to take the
          bait.)”

          This sentiment was echoed by Jay Rosen, who claimed that
          trying to pin Warren down on whether her policies would raise taxes on
          the middle class should be a “credibility killer”—for the press!

          On the contrary, the idea that questions about the cost of major policy
          proposals might be exploited in the general election is a good reason to
          hash them out in a primary debate. It’s sort of the point of primary
          season. And it’s not “taking the bait” for Warren to give an honest and
          straightforward answer about how to pay for her signature policy ideas.

          The longer Warren remains the frontrunner, the more these questions will
          come up. Her inability or unwillingness to give honest answers should
          concern Democrats who need to persuade non-leftist Americans to support
          their nominee. As things now stand, Warren herself created a few nice
          GOP campaign ads Tuesday night.

                                            Democrats wants the government to raise your children by putting social workers in your home! I don't want the government to tell me how to raise my children.

                                              all I hear is tax, tax, tax and more tax. Taxes affect us all not just the top 1.5%

                                                      I love Yang's emphasis on the value of people. That's my favorite thing about him. He wants to value people.

                                                        Yang looks genuine. Others look fake.

                                                          So Yang is who people turn to when they realize Trump is right about almost everything but are too chicken to admit it. And yes the Democrats have controlled failing public schools, struggling inner cities for decades. And they have failed. Grade F!

                                                            The fall of Biden is accelerating. Can we just get to the nomination already? There’s only 4 candidates I can stand listening to at this point.

                                                              I really appreciate ABC for highlighting answers that actually matter instead of bullshit focusing on the frontrunners. LA Times posted a highlight that made zero sense and, in actuality, highlighted nothing except now biased they are. Thank you for that ABC, truly.

                                                                Why do they even call this a debate? They rarely debate each other. More like a 3 hr commercial for their personal branding/name recognition or hatred for the present President. Where is a single inspirational person on this stage? They are all rather boring and tedious and in some cases nonsensical. Free everything promises means new massive taxes on EVERYONE and EVERYTHING.
