Elizabeth Warren became the one to be taken down during US democratic debate
Issued on: Modified:
Several Democratic presidential contenders launched an attack on surging U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren on healthcare and taxes during a debate on Tuesday, pushing her to explain how she would pay for ambitious proposals including her Medicare for All plan. At the first debate since Warren climbed into a virtual tie with former Vice President Joe Biden in many Democratic opinion polls, Warren was a repeated target for contenders trying to lift themselves out of the bottom of the crowded Democratic presidential pack. Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar said Warren was being evasive on her plan for universal healthcare and that it would mean higher taxes.
