Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz to Debate Obamacare

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) go head-to-head in a debate over ObamaCare on CNN Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017 at 9 p.m. EST.

The debate will be moderated by CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

Now that the election is over, open enrollment is over,  and repeal and replace efforts have begun, the debate will be an opportunity to hear different sides of the conservative and progressive view on the direction of healthcare.

Will “the government pay for it”? Will deregulation be enough to life the U.S. up the ranks of other developed countries who provide universal healthcare? Should Medicare debate drug prices? Will preexisting conditions be excluded?

We won’t find out the answers to those questions on Tuesday, but we will likely get clear cases made for all of the above… and who knows, a great and earnest debate might even influence upcoming ObamaCare replacement policy?

Stay tuned to see how these Presidential Candidates handle the heated healthcare debate. (It is also just a cool look into an alternate reality that almost was, Sanders vs. Cruz.)
