-This is the CNN Democratic Presidential Debate.
-Are we rolling? -Yep.
-The debate highlighted the deep divisions
between the candidates.
But when it came to the facts,
some candidates were more accurate
than others with their assertions.
Let's take a look at some of the biggest factual fumbles
from this debate.
The two-night, 20-candidate debate
took about five hours and covered a lot of ground.
There was a lot of talk about what would happen
under a Medicare-for-all system.
-Are you also "with Bernie" on Medicare-for-all
when it comes to raising taxes
on middle-class Americans to pay for it?
-So, giant corporations and billionaires
are going to pay more.
Middle-class families
are going to pay less out of pocket for their healthcare.
-The plan, no matter how you cut it,
costs $3 trillion when it is, in fact, employed.
-Candidates defended their biographies.
-Now, I come from one of the most rural states in America.
I have a D-minus voting record from the NRA.
Back in 1988, coming from a state that had no gun control,
I called for the ban of the sale
and distribution of assault weapons.
I lost that election.
-Immigration and standards of facilities
along the border took center stage.
-An unlawful crossing is an unlawful crossing
if you do it in the civil courts
or if you do it through the criminal courts.
But the criminal courts is what is giving Donald Trump
the ability to truly violate the human rights of people
coming to our country
where no one surrenders their human rights.
And, so, doing it through the civil courts
means that you won't need these awful detention facilities.
-After the last debate, for example,
I went to a place in Florida called Homestead.
And there is a private detention facility being paid for
by your taxpayer dollars, a private detention facility
that currently houses 2,700 children.
-Two Democratic debates down and many more to go.
