Amy Klobuchar lashes out at Warren at Dem debate: ‘You are making Republican talking points right now’

Published

on

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) clashed with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over health care on Tuesday at the Democratic presidential debate.

Warren became the target of several candidates after she refused to say that she would have to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for her Medicare for All plan.

“We owe it to the American people to tell them where we will send the invoice,” Klobuchar told Warren. “I’m tired of hearing whenever I say these things, it’s Republican talking points. You are making Republican talking points right now in this room by coming out for a plan that’s going to do that.”

Warren, however, pointed out that she was focused on bringing down the total cost of health care and taxes for middle-class voters.

“The problem we have got right now is the overall cost of health care,” Warren said. “You can try to spin this any way you want. I have spent my life on working on how America’s middle class has been hollowed out and how we fight back.”

Only hours earlier, Mori had said he expected a decision from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) during the course of the week.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics were due to open on July 24 this year and run for 16 days, but the coronavirus pandemic forced the first peace-time postponement of the Games.

Published

President Donald Trump railed at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during a phone interview with Fox News.

The president called in to "Fox & Friends," which he regularly watches and promotes on his Twitter feed, and complained that Pelosi had criticized his response to the coronavirus crisis.

"She’s a sick puppy, in my opinion," Trump told the hosts. "She has a lot of problems."

Trump pushed the emerging Republican attack that claims Democrats were too distracted by impeachment to respond to the COVID-19 threat in its early stages.

Don’t believe the polls — Trump is killing his re-election chances with his pandemic floundering: columnist

Published

on

According to longtime political observer David Leonhardt, Donald Trump's chances of being re-elected are diminishing every day as the economy continues to crash and Americans are dying because of the COVID-19 pandemic despite "snapshot polls" saying voters are still supportive of him.

Writing for the New York Times, the columnist notes that the full horrors of what is now occurring won't fully be revealed for months to come -- and for Trump, the resulting damage may be too much to overcome in November when voters head to the polls.
