6. I know she's my candidate.... But Amy is winning the debate, by far

 



Steyer is trying to prove he has the most black friends.


Joe started strong, but is fading.


Pete has been very solid, except a little shaky on the drug busts in South Bend question


Bernie just keeps shouting his standard stump speech. Tired and dull.


Yang should just go home. He's useless, and his "pardon Trump" answer was a campaign killer


Liz has been solid.




But Amy is clearly the best tonight. I am sorry she doesn't have more support.

as a talking point.

So Yang's hammering on the fact that 78% of us live paycheck to paycheck and how to change that as fast as possible is smart.

Fact check: Warren claims 36 million Americans can't afford prescription drugs

The high cost of health care was front and center at the Democratic debate in New Hampshire Friday night.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said that ď36 million Americans last year couldnít afford to have a prescription filled, and that includes people with health insurance.Ē

Facts first: Multiple studies show that millions of Americans canít afford their medications. While itís unclear which study Warren is referencing, Warrenís campaign did previously tell PolitiFact that she was referencing a 2019 Commonwealth Fund report when she made a similar point late last year. And by that measure sheís close ó that report found that 37 million adults age 19 to 64 did not fill a prescription in 2018 because of cost. The study notes that many people with insurance coverage still face financial difficulties because they have high deductibles or out-of-pocket costs. 

Other studies also show that Americans have trouble affording their prescription drugs. A 2019 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report found that 11.4% of adults age 18 to 64 did not take their medication as prescribed to reduce costs in 2017, while 19.5% asked their doctor for a lower-cost alternative.

Meanwhile, a 2019 survey from Gallup and West Health found that 58 million adults reported an inability to pay for needed drugs in past year.

One bright spot: Things used to be worse. Before the Affordable Care Act went to effect in 2014, even more Americans had trouble filling prescriptions, according to the Commonwealth report. In 2012, some 50 million people did not fill their prescriptions.


President Trump and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have said they want to reduce the cost of prescription drugs, but little has been done.

81. I vacillate between saying just FIX the ACA and #MFA. With Trump's suit in court against

 

the ACA and pre=existing conditions, I am very scared--and have been for LONG time.

66. Wow! Informative debate and now Emanuel and Christie

 

Is the thread hunting round for the analysis by ABC news?

This was by far the best debate this year.

Thanks to the thread moderator, really appreciate you!!!

I switched to MSNBC as soon as the debate was over. Chris Hayes is talking to New Hampshire voters. Its like a town hall.
