Klobuchar: Las Vegas Debate Was Short on Solutions, Trump Talk

By    |   Thursday, 20 February 2020 11:20 AM

Primaries and debates are about the candidates showing their differences, but there was not enough focus on solutions or defeating President Donald Trump during the Democrats' presidential debate in Las Vegas Wednesday night, candidate and Sen. Amy Klobuchar said Thursday.

"There [were] a lot of things said on stage last night that I hope are fact-checked because it felt like there was such a zest to get at the other person that there wasn't enough focus on Donald Trump," the Minnesota Democrat told MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I tried. I thought it was really important to keep on the Medicare for All distinction and on immigration, but lost on the cutting room floor was the fact that Sen. [Bernie] Sanders had voted against the first immigration bill."

Klobuchar also shot back at Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., for her "allegation that my healthcare plan was a few paragraphs long."

"I have an extensive plan, including mental health, long-term care, going after pharmaceuticals," said Klobuchar. "It was unfortunate I wasn't given that opportunity."

She added that she does not agree with Medicare for All plans but insisted that the Affordable Care Act, "which is nearly 10 points more popular than the current guy in the White House," should be expanded, not torn down.

Klobuchar said she is also sad that gun control was not discussed, considering the biggest mass shooting in American history occurred in Las Vegas in October 2017.
