The Second 2019 Democratic Debate: Key Moments, Day 1 | NYT News


“How you doing?” “It’s good to see you!
I’m good.” “Democrats win when
we figure out what is right, and we get out there
and fight for it.” “I think Democrats win when
we run on real solutions, not impossible promises.” “But I’m a little more pragmatic.” “If we embrace
a far-left agenda, they’re going to say we’re
a bunch of crazy socialists. If we embrace a
conservative agenda, you know what
they’re going to do? They’re going to say we’re
a bunch of crazy socialists. So let’s just stand up
for the right policy.” “We need to have a campaign
of energy and excitement and of vision.” “We are more worried
about winning an argument than winning an election.” “Folks, we have a choice. We can go down the road
that Senator Sanders and Senator Warren
want to take us, which is with bad policies
like Medicare for all, free everything and
impossible promises that will turn off independent voters
and get Trump re-elected.” “Democrats flipped 40
Republican seats in the House and not one of
those 40 Democrats supported the policies
of our front-runners at center stage.” “I get a little bit tired of
Democrats afraid of big ideas.” “I don’t understand
why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of
the United States just to talk about
what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for.” “Senator Warren’s plan, basically that she put out,
we would not be able to trade with
the United Kingdom.” “But why do we got
to be the party of taking something away
from people?” “No, no one is the party—” “That’s what they’re running on.
They’re running on—” “What do you say to
Congressman Delaney?” “You’re wrong.” “… Bernie, you don’t have to yell.” “But throw your hands up.” “All right!” “You haven’t—” “You don’t know that, Bernie. “Second of all — I do know,
and I wrote the damn bill.” “But you are playing into
Donald Trump’s hands.” “If you think any
of this wonkiness is going to deal with
this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred
that this president is bringing up in this country, then I’m afraid that the
Democrats are going to see some very dark days. There is an injustice
that continues to form a toxicity
underneath the surface, an emotional turbulence that only reparations
will heal.” “Thank you very much.
Senator Sanders—” “… Medicare for all
is comprehensive. It covers all
health care needs.” “I have a better path:
Medicare for America.” “I just have a better
way to do this.” “My plan, BetterCare,
is fully paid for.” “That’s the concept of my ‘Medicare for all
who want it’ proposal.” “Thank you, Ms. Williamson.
Thank you, Ms. Williamson.” “Hope you’ll come back
to me this time.” “Go ahead.” “Thank you, mayor.” “And Washington
can’t deliver—” “Thank you, mayor.” “You can’t expect—” “Thank you, congressman.
We’re going to move on. We’re going to move on.” “Stand by please,
stand by please. Please abide by the rules.”
