In 2020, the White house hopefuls are trying to attacks and avoid dispute.

DETROIT-the Former Vice-President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., clashed in the opening moments of Wednesday night, the Democratic primary debate on the issue of health care, with Biden accusing Harris of “double talk”, and Harris to say that Biden was “”are confused.

Harris was asked about the Biden campaign, the criticism of your plan, all Americans health care was a “have to approach it in any way.”


“Well, you are probably confused because you haven’t read it,” she said, saying it was a “plan was in response to the needs of the American people.”

Biden pointed out in his answer, to warn the viewers, you should be skeptical of a plan that claims to achieve something, in 10 years: “you should ask why it takes 10 years.”

Then he said, it’s not a speech “on the cost of the plan, or, was” that the Americans would lose the employer-based coverage.

“Very blunt and very straight forward, you can’t beat, President Trump with double-speak, on this plan,” he said to Harris.

“Unfortunately, Vice President Biden, you’re just too inaccurate, what you’re describing,” Harris responded. Later, Biden said, was a plan of his own, as it was not every American-something that you said, “without excuse.”

Had Biden, warned before the debate that he was looking to avoid a repeat of the last month, the debate, in which he instructs the’ve savaged by Harris for his past in the search for common ground with segregation ists in the 1970s, and the opposition by the Federal busing.

He then saw a jump in the polls, though he retained his status as the front-runner, with Harris running in second place in many polls. He has to participate more, to beat, as the man, he has the biggest target on his back.


“I’m not so polite, this time,” Biden supporters said at a recent fundraiser.

Biden told reporters last week that he “was overly polite in the way I did, as a response to an attack” in the first debate.


And a source close to Biden’s inner circle, told Fox News that the former Vice-President was ready, and the “plans, and a bit feistier.”

When he entered the stage, he was, however, conciliatory with Harris, shake their hand and adding with a smile: “Go easy on me, kid.” Their campaign, though, with the exception of the term “child made” on Twitter.

But the positioning of the candidates on the stage, should the discussion be more difficult for Biden, who was accompanied on Wednesday by both Harris and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N. J. — who has the President already fierce in his criticism of the former Vice.

Also waiting in the wings, were candidates such as New York City mayor Bill de Blasio and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, were likely to push back against Biden’s brand of bipartisan centrism in favor of a progressive agenda.


De Blasio went to both Harris and Biden in his opening speech, the highlight of the statements in which he said Biden had said, wealthy donors, nothing would fundamentally change if he became President, and remarks, in which Harris said that you try, the restructuring of the company.

“Well, I am,” he said.
