Former presidential candidates, Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, will debate the future of Obamacare on CNN.

Moderated by CNN anchor Jake Tapper and chief political correspondent Dana Bash, the Town Hall Debate will air at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7 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.

"Sanders and Cruz, runners-up for their respective presidential party nominations, will also field questions from voters around the country," CNN announced in a press release.

The news network recently hosted a primetime town hall with former House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif..

"I know I speak for virtually all Democrats in saying that we have deep concern about the Republican proposal, which would repeal the Affordable Care Act without having any alternative plan in place," Sanders said on the Senate floor Wednesday, according to Vox.

"And we think the idea of throwing some 30 million Americans off of the health insurance that they have — significantly reducing funding for Medicaid, which will not only be very problematic for lower-income people, but also impact middle-class people who depend on Medicaid to help pay for the nursing home care their parents get."
