Warren becomes subject of debate and Biden bumbles on

Washington Examiner:
Elizabeth Warren got her first taste of front-runner status at the fourth Democratic primary debate — and the heat that goes along with it.

Her 11 rivals in Westerville, Ohio, on Tuesday night blasted the Massachusetts senator on her approaches to healthcare, taxes, and foreign policy, among a slew of other issues. The negative light they sought to shine on Warren, 70, reflects her steady rise in the polls over the past couple of months to now run even or ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden.

Democrats onstage at Otterbein University hit Warren over her “Medicare for all” plan from points across the ideological spectrum. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, returning to the campaign trail after a heart attack, called her idea a pale imitation of his own proposal, which would eliminate private health insurance in favor of government coverage. Other candidates questioned how Warren would pay for the broadening of coverage without raising taxes on middle-class Americans.

“I have made clear what my principles are here. Costs will go up for the wealthy and big corporations," Warren said during the most crowded debate in modern U.S. political history. “I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs for middle-class families."

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg seized on her dodge, a move he foreshadowed ahead of the debate.

"A yes or no question that didn't get a yes or no answer,” Buttigieg said. “Your signature, senator, is to have a plan for everything, except for this.”

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who has been ribbed for not dropping her Midwest “nice” facade, piled on.

"We need to be honest here and tell the American people where we’re going to send the invoice,” she said. "The difference between a plan and a pipe dream is something you can actually get done.”
Meanwhile. shortly after Hunter Biden gave an interview in which he said he showed poor judgment in doing the Ukraine deal, his father said he was proud of the judgment he made in doing the deal to be paid $50,000 a month to set on a board of a company for which he had no experience or qualifications other than being Joe Biden's son.

The other Democrats did not have to attack Biden because Trump has already exposed him and his family business of selling access.
