It’s the debate that never happened during the election season, but next week former presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz will throw down in a CNN town-hall meeting on the future of Obamacare.
Moderated by chief political correspondent Jake Tapper, the debate will take place in front of a live audience next Tuesday at 9 p.m. Sanders, the senator from Vermont, is opposing attempts to repeal the landmark bill. During his White house run, Sanders advocated for the adoption of a single-payer healthcare model on a par with Medicare. Cruz, a the senator from Texas, has been a vehement backer of repeal legislation.
It should be a fun debate, as both have a record of hours-long filibusters on the Senate floor and fiery performances when squaring off against their primary rivals.
