5 Topics for Democratic Debate No. 4
Gabriella Schwarz / January 16, 2016
Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley will meet on the debate stage Sunday amid the fiercest Democratic rhetoric of the presidential cycle to date. The tightening of the race between Clinton and Sanders has escalated the political jabs between the once-cordial adversaries. Clinton released an ad this week reasserting her stance on guns, a swipe at Sanders, whom she has criticized for not being tough enough on the industry. A disagreement over health care also gained traction this week, with Sanders calling for a high-priced “Medicare for all” plan, and Clinton claiming an increase in taxes to pay for the plan would only make it more expensive.
With these disagreements expected to spill over onto the NBC debate stage on Sunday, follow these Flipboard topics to stay up-to-date.
