According to The Hill Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will go to battle next week in a debate over the future of ObamaCare.
Sanders and Cruz, who both ran for their party’s nomination in the 2016 presidential race, will square off in a debate airing on CNN next Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 9 p.m.
The debate will be moderated by CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. The debate comes as Republicans in Congress craft a plan to repeal and replace former President Obama’s signature healthcare law.
A promo for the debate aired during CNN’s town hall with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and news quickly spread on social media.
I've wanted a Ted Cruz / Bernie Sanders debate for over a year now. https://t.co/zkP52IUcCu
