With Day 1 and Day 2 of the Democratic Debates well behind us, the big takeways are unbelievable at this point. Candidates (as many as their are) touched on everything from immigration; gender issues, healthcare, and more.

Some of them even suggested one monumental change to healthcare in the United States that if it ever occurred it could have potentially life-changing effects for millions of people.

Some candidates (including Julian Castro and the like) suggested that it shouldn’t be illegal to cross the border, but instead just a civil violation. Of course, the American public had allot to say considering that would mean immigration as they know it would forever be altered.

Day 1 Recap: Click Here

Elizabeth Warren:  Gun violence in this country is a national health emergency. We need to treat this like a virus because it is killing our children.   

Secretary Castro:  Common sense reform is the answer.   Parents are tired of their children going to school to learn math; reading, and how to basically survive an active shooter situation. 

Despite his conntroversial remarks about immigration — Julian Castro posted the best fundraising day post Debate than he did before.   The Hill reports.

Tim Ryan: We have to grow our way out of climate change.  We have a huge perception problem within the Democratic party on issues like this.  We’ve lost all connection.

Kamala Harris:   Perhaps the most notable moments from Harris surrounded the idea that she was not happy with Biden and his recent comments on segegration among other things.   Check out this article from the New York Times for a further rundown of what was certainly a shining night for Harris.  Harris’s open discussion about her record as a prosecutor;  diligence towards Biden, and several other key points indicate that she is willing to step out of her comfort zone.

Joe Biden:   Certainly struggled

Joe Biden, although long having led in the polls for Democratic voters, appears to have struggled the most in the debates.  Often referred to as being “old”, Biden also has a controversial record on his own issues with race and the black community (a focal point of the debates).

 

Senator Bernie Sanders: Problematic, yet a fairly successful night.

Perhaps like many outlets have already pointed out, uh, this quote from Bernie Sanders sticks out the most.

“Look we have a gun crisis right now. Forty thousand people a year are getting killed. In 1988, Rachel, when it wasn’t popular, I ran on a platform of banning assault weapons and — in fact — lost that race for Congress. I have a D-minus voting record from the (National Rifle Association) NRA. And I believe what we need is comprehensive gun legislation that, among other things, provides universal background. We end the gun-show loophole. We end the straw-man provision. And I believed in 1988 and I believe today, assault weapons, assault weapons are weapons are for the military and that they should not be on the streets of America.”

Here’s the problem with that.

[This particular additional quote comes from a 2013 interview given by Sanders to a Vermont newspaper].   During last nights’ debate,   Maddow, questioned Sanders over the very same quote that he now claims has been mischaracterized.

My own view on guns is, everything being equal, states should make those decisions.’ Has your thinking changed since then, do you now think there’s a federal role to play?”

In 1993,  Bernie Sanders voted against strengthening background check laws for gun owners in North America. In fact, he additional in 2003 and 2005 voted in favor of bills and legislation that ultimately in the end protected gun manufacturers.

Keep up with us for more debate coverage as we continue to unpack some of the stand out moments and fact check experts.
