DETROIT — sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on Tuesday, the debate was not to pull happy at the 2020 democratic debate audience’s reaction to your, back to your story of a friend who suffers from ALS, while fighting against his insurance — the listener does not say: “that’s funny.”

Warren, who is a passionate critic of the current private health care and insurance, said she wanted to suffer to talk, Ady Barkan — a 35-year-old activist AS the. Warren said: “it is to kill him.”

You responded by saying billionaires and “huge company” would pay more but middle class-pay families less out of your own pocket. You then tried to drag the topic back to her friend.

“Medicare-for-all fix,” she said.
