Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders Debate Obamacare on CNN

On Tuesday night CNN did something extraordinary.

They took to seasoned politicians from opposite ends of the ideological spectrum and had them debate a controversial subject – Obamacare. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) went toe-to-toe over Obamacare and several other political issues that the healthcare law affected. Sanders, from a socialist perspective, defended the overreaching government takeover of America’s healthcare, and Cruz opposed the legislative monstrosity from a free-market point of view.

It made for good TV and should have cleared up at least some of the debate.

I, for one, hope that we’ll soon be seeing more of this on our TV.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
