Two Nights of Democratic Party Debates Summed Up by a Single Meme

The last two nights we’ve been presented
with the finest that the Democratic Party has to offer the United States of America,
and to be honest it was scary. Each 2020 candidate seemed to want to outdo
each other when it came to offering free stuff and pandering to those who actually believe
fairy tales and money trees are real. Not a single candidate offered a viable way
to pay for any of their pie in the sky promises other than stealing from the rich. If you didn’t get a chance, or decided not
to watch here’s the entire two nights summed up by a single meme:
And that my friends sadly sums up the entire sordid thing. Of the 20 Democratic Party presidential hopefuls
on the stage the past two nights only Bernie Sanders was honest when he promised all of
the free stuff he was offering would require Americans to pay more in taxes. Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders
defended his big-spending plans for government-operated healthcare during the early stages of a debate
on Thursday, but acknowledged some Americans would pay more taxes to implement it. On the second night of back-to-back Democratic
debates, Sanders said his Medicare-for-All healthcare plan would be fully paid for and
reduce premiums for many but that some in the middle class might pay more. “Yes, they will pay more in taxes but less
in healthcare for what they get,” Sanders said as the debate in Miami got started. Democratic front-runner Joe Biden said he
would repeal Republican President Donald Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy. “Donald Trump has put us in a horrible situation,
we do have horrible income inequality,” Biden said. “I would be going about eliminating Donald
Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy.” Biden, the former vice president who is making
his third White House bid, and Sanders, a U.S. senator who failed in his first bid in
2016, were at center stage in Thursday’s debate. Biden has enjoyed a healthy lead in opinion
polls since he entered the Democratic race to pick a challenger to Trump in the November
2020 election. Sanders has been running second in most polls
but has seen his support slipping in recent weeks, with some of his supporters switching
to fellow progressive Elizabeth Warren. The two top contenders shared the stage with
eight other Democrats, including two other top-tier candidates: Pete Buttigieg, the mayor
of South Bend, Indiana, and U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California. The debate also included U.S. Senators Michael
Bennet and Kirsten Gillibrand, former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, U.S. Representative
Eric Swalwell, self-help guru Marianne Williamson and entrepreneur Andrew Yang. All six are polling nationally around 1% or
less. In a surprisingly heated first debate on Wednesday
night, 10 Democratic contenders including Warren clashed over healthcare and border
policy but agreed there was a desperate need to remove Trump from the White House. Please take a moment and consider sharing
this video with your friends and family. Thank you.
