Democratic Primary Debates Round Two: Top Candidates Take Aim at Healthcare

The second round of democratic primary debates has come to a close.

Some of the big topics hit on during the two-night event?

Well, Wall Street and Amazon were certainly two of them.

But the one issue that really took center stage?

Healthcare Senator Bill De Blasio, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Senator Bernie Sanders all shared their thoughts around the topic.

Here's a couple excerpts from the debates: "I don't understand why Democrats on this stage are fear-mongering about universal health care.

It makes no sense.

Ask the American people, they are sick of what the pharmaceutical companies are doing to them.

Ask them what they feel about the health insurance companies.

They feel it's holding back their families because they can't get the coverage they need.

They get a lot of noes.

They don't get a lot of help from health insurance companies," De Blasio said.

"The healthcare industry made a $100 billion in profits last year.

Tonight, as we speak right now, 500,000 Americans are sleeping out on the street, and yet companies like Amazon that made billions in profits, did not pay one nickel in federal income tax," Sanders said.

Former Vice President Joe Biden also did not shy away from sharing his thoughts on the U.S. healthcare system: "Obamacare is working.

The way to build this and get to it immediately is to build on Obamacare.

Go back and do -- take back all the things that Trump took away, provide a public option, meaning every single person in America would be able to buy into that option if they didn't like their employer plan, or if they're on Medicaid, they'd automatically be in the plan," Biden said.

Curious to know what other candidates had to say?
