this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the "overnight news." i'm meg oliver. democratic presidential candidates will crowd the stage again tonight for round two of the debates in detroit. there are so many people running the democratic field the debates were split in two. ten candidates faced off tuesday night, another ten will debate later today. four others did not make the cut. the headliners last night, massachusetts senator elizabeth warren, vermont senator bernie sanders, south bend, indiana mayor pete buttigieg, and former texas congressman beto o'rourke. here's some of what they had to say when pressed on key issues like health care, immigration, the economy and their view of president trump. >> right now we have a
dysfunctional health care system. 87 million uninsured or underinsured. $500,000 -- 500,000 americans every year going bankrupt because of medical bills. 30,000 people dying while the health care industry makes tens of billions of dollars in profit. five minutes away from here, john, is a country, it's called canada. they guarantee health care to every man, woman and child as a human right, they spend half of what we spend, and, by the way, when you end up in a hospital in canada, you come out with no bill at all. health care is a human right, it's not a privilege. i believe that. i will fight for that. >> so, look -- >> jake. >> -- let's be clear about this. we are the democrats. we are not about trying to take away health care from anyone. that's what the republicans are trying to do and we should stop using republican talking points in order to talk with each other
about how to best provide that health care. >> we don't have to stand up here speculating about whether the public op wbetter -- or a medicare for all environment will be better than the corporate options. we can put it to the test. that's the concept of my medicare for all who want it proposal. that way if people like me are right that the public alternative is going to be not only more comprehensive but more affordable than any of the corporate options around there, we'll see americans walk away from the corporate options into the medicare option and it will become medicare for all without having to kick anybody off of insurance. >> 15 seconds on the clarification. you are willing to raise taxes on middle class americans in order to have universal coverage with the disappearance of insurance premiums, yes or no? >> i think you can buy into. that's the idea of medicare for all who want it. look, this is a distinction without a difference. in this country if you have health coverage -- if you don't have health coverage you're
paying too much for care and if >>he middlss will noten re b of false choice. some who want to improve the affordable care act at the margins. others who want a medicare for all program that will force people off of private insurance. i have a better path. medicare for america. everyone who is uninsured is enrolled in medicare tomorrow. those who are insufficiently ensured are enrolled in medicare. >> two things. they will be better because medicare for all is comprehensive. it covers all health care needs for senior citizens. it will finally include dental care, hearing aids and eyeglasses. >> but you don't know that. you don't know that, bernie. >> second of all. i do know it. i wrote the damn bill. and second of all, second of all, many of our union brothers and siste nobod me now paying hig deduces
co-payments. when we do medicare for all, instead of having the company putting money into health care, they can get decent wageod >> ms. williamson, how do you respond to the criticism from senator warren that you're not willing to fight for medicare for all. >> i don't know if senator warren said is that about me specifically. i add viral very much what senator warren has said and what bernie has said, but i have to say, i'm normally way over there with bernie and elizabeth on this one. i hear the others, and i have some concern about that as well, and i do have concern about what the republicans would say. and that's not just a republican talking point. i have concern that it will be difficult. i have concern that it will make it harder to win and i have concern that it will make it harder to govern. >> you know, think that what we have to do is we have to be an america that is clear about what we want to do with immigration. we need to expand legal immigration. we need to create a path for
citizenship, not just forleho hg here in the farms and for students who have overstayed their visas. we need to fix the crisis at the border. and a big part of how we do that is we do not play into donald trump's hands. >> but -- >> he wants to stir up the crisis at the border because that's his overall message. if there is anything wrong in your life -- >> thank you, senator warren. governor bullock, your response. >> but you are playing into donald trump's hands. the challenge isn't that it's a criminal offense to cross the border. the challenge is that donald trump is president and using this to rip families apart. a sane immigration system needs a sane leader, and we can do that without decriminalizing, providing health care for everyone. >> are senator sanders' proposals going to incentivize
undocumented immigrants to come into this country illegally. >> yes. and right now if you want to come into the country, you should at least ring the doorbell. we have asylum laws. i saw the kids up in grand rapids not far from here. it's shameful what's happening, but donald trump is doing it. even if you decriminalize, which we should not do, ye statutory authority. the president could still use his authority to separate families. so we've got to get rid of donald trump. but you don'tnt the united states. if they're seeking asylum, of course we want to welcome them. we're a strong enough country to be able to welcome them. as far as the health care goes, undocumented people can buy health care, too. i mean, everyone else in america is paying for their health care. i think -- i don't think it's a stretch for us to ask undocumented people in the country to also pay for health care. >> senator sanders, your response. >> well, two things. a sane immigration policy moves the comprehensive immigration reform. it moves to a humane border
policy is policy in which, by the way, we have enough administrative judges so we don't have the incredible backlogs we have right now. but to answer your question, i happen to believe that when i talk about health care as a human right, that applies to all people in this country. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.
