Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders to Debate Obamacare Live on CNN

Sanders Cruz

Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders are set to debate each other on the merits of the Affordable Care Act live on CNN on Tuesday, February 7.

The Republican and independent who caucuses with the Democrats both ran for president in 2016 before losing to the eventual nominees for their party. Cruz ran on a platform of repealing and replacing Obamacare, while Sanders voted for the law in 2009 and continues to support it.

The 9 P.M. EST debate will be moderated by CNN hosts Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. It comes a week after a CNN town hall with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi hosted the same time and day of the week.
