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.”

Headlines like "Austin sex-ed curriculum teaches kids how to obtain an abortion" and "HuffPost writer considers Christianity 'dangerous'" give right-wing audiences fodder for anger to lash out at their counterparts.

The View’s Meghan McCain insists Democrats are too weak to impeach — and rants into commercial break

Published

on

The two conservative co-hosts of "The View" agreed the House hadn't turned up enough evidence yet to impeach President Donald Trump, but Meghan McCain erupted when she was interrupted for a commercial break.

Conservative Abby Huntsman has been more open to the impeachment inquiry, saying that Trump's actions toward Ukraine had been inexcusable, but she's not convinced he committed a crime worthy of impeachment.

But McCain, who has argued all along that Democrats were overplaying their hand politically, insisted Trump's opponents were too weak to take him down.

“One of the things that I pride myself in is we can’t get sucked into the Beltway in the media circles,” McCain said. “What I saw last night on the debate stage is not going to be good enough to beat him.”

As the House committee members took an extended break during testimony in the impeachment hearing this Thursday, a conspiracy theory reportedly emerged amongst some House Republicans, who felt the break was strategically planned to allow the Democrats' narrative to "sink in" for observers.

"Some grumbling from Republican House members that the current '45-minute' (it's been more than an hour already) #impeachment hearing break was strategic, to let the Democrats' argument and questioning sink in," Reuters reporter Patricia Zengerle tweeted.
