want. >> joe biden says that this is, what you are suggesting, an elimination of obamacare. is that accurate? >> it's absolutely not. >> biden reacted to her comments during a stop in sioux city. >> you are either on medicare for all which means obamacare's gone, gone, period, or you build on obamacare like i'm doing, and you provide a medicare option. what her position -- maybe she's changed her position, i don't know. >> senator bernie sanders takes on his rivals today talking about medicare for all. he's scheduled to speak at george washington university. meantime, cnn's first new hampshire poll of 2020 hopefuls shows joe biden, bernie sanders, and elizabeth warren all there at the top within the poll's five-point margin of error. the poll also showing, and this is key, a lot of uncertainty with 64%, a very high number there, still saying they are undecided. >> that's huge. we have got a long way to go. >> long, long way to go.
2:38 am
>> early innings. >> we'll bring in "washington post" congressional reporter coran demirgin, political analyst. thanks for being with us. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> we just heard kamala harris kind of explaining where she stands on health care. and then we heard joe biden saying it's either obamacare or it's medicare for all, it can't be both. harris saying it's medicare for all, but obamacare is not eliminated. who's right there? because how is it all correct? >> well, they're both viewing this from different ends of the spectrum. for harris, she's saying, look, i'm not getting rid of obamacare, i'm letting obamacare evolve into medicare for all until everybody who was covered under obamacare is still covered under this different system. and biden is saying, well, that's an elimination of obamacare which sounds like a scary thing to many democrats. and he's saying that he wants to stop basically at the medicare option or the public option, and not let the system completely shift toward being a medicare
2:39 am
for all which looks more like a single payer that looks more like the plans that the people on the more liberal side of the democratic party, the more left wing, are pushing. you're going to have this debate -- you will have a debate over substance, that is for sure. you also have this debate that's more over the philosophy of how you approach health care and whether to preserve the private insurance companies is kind of a paramount thing that must be done. for biden it is. for harris, she's saying, we can do the same. then the question becomes how do you pay for it, of course. >> right. >> the idea of is it a good thing to transition people off of private insurance to a medicare-for-all option or public option so everybody's there and can be covered, that's a debate hatch happen -- debate happening in the democratic party. >> this is a number-one issue to people, 180 million people covered by private health insurance. what kind of a program lies down the road perhaps in terms of coalescing around a candidate when you have such differing views on this central issue?
2:40 am
>> well, i mean, yeah, this is a -- a difficulty, also it goes to the complexity of health coverage and that i don't think it's ever been anything that you can distill into a sound bite and sell well because there are so many competing sound bites that you could choose from. this is why it's been problematic to hash out when a health care plan is going to look like. remember also whatever the president pitches has to get through congress to work and take effect. so this is a debate that is important to have, and it's taking place in the primary stage. but if it's the only thing that people make their decision on, yeah, it's going to be hard to get after the melee, the fight, to get everybody to rally christine romaaround whatever the health care plan is. >> we saw. that we saw the exchanges between nancy pelosi, the members of the house, on the floor last night. the back and forth. you're a congressional reporter. a lot of americans watch that and throw their hands up and say, oh, what's going on there, you know, it's --
2:41 am
>> i don't like parliamentary rules violation -- >> yeah. help us understand what that means. put it into context for us, is this commonplace? it's -- it's very rare for a house speaker to -- for them to say that she broke parliamentary law. >> right. look, there are these rules of decorum in the house which are supposed to prevent maligning and other members of congress, the president, and things descending to a free for all where you're just calling each other names. however, sometimes in extenuating circumstance, the members say i'm going to bend or try to break these rules. as we saw many people say yesterday. many people were calling the tweets a rift, calling -- tweets racist, calling the president a racist. it was remarkable in many ways to see the choice people are making about whether they did that on the floor, risking being told that their words had to be stricken from the record, and that precipitated the vote about whether nancy pelosi's words would ban her from the floor for the day. or whether they chose to amend the speech. you played the tape of john
2:42 am
lewis saying he knows racism when he sees it. i talked to him, and he told me the president is a racist, you cannot deny that. it shows he shifted won con son ant at the end of the word to apply what the rules of the house are. it tells you how much. a tightrope this can be. yet, those are the longstanding rules of the house which they would have to make a concerted effort to change. doesn't seem they have republicans on board given that only four republicans and one independent that afifiliates th republicans. >> you have to keep your eye on states that are key, particularly in michigan. when you have fred upton voting with democrats and justin amcintosh also joining with democrats. could this be an issue down the road for house republicans? we shall see. you will be covering that story ahead, as well. thanks for being here. >> thank you. >> thank you.
