Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz Debate: How To Watch Election Runner-Ups Battle Over Healthcare
Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz will face off in a live debate about health care in America on CNN tonight.
Sanders and Cruz, the respective biggest challengers to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, are engaging in a debate Tuesday night. The debate will focus on Obamacare and the Republicans' fight to remove and replace it under Trump's presidency.
CNN's Jake Tapper and Dana Bash will moderate the debate, which is set to take place at George Washington University.
"President Donald Trump has made repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act one of his top priorities while Congressional Democrats are opposed. Sanders, an opponent of repealing Obamacare, and Cruz, a supporter of the President's healthcare agenda, will join Tapper and Bash to debate the fate of former President Barack Obama's signature legislation and the GOP's approach to healthcare," says CNN.
