Buttigieg Blasts Warren: More Specific on Selfies Than Medicare for All

Buttigieg Blasts Warren: More Specific on Selfies Than Medicare for All”

Buttigieg was among several Democratic presidential candidates who took aim at Warren during the fourth Democratic primary debate hosted CNN and The New York Times on Tuesday night. The Massachusetts senator was constantly on defense throughout the debate, underscoring a marked shift in the Democratic race that has been underway for many weeks: while former Vice President Joe Biden has remained strong in the polls, the other candidates in the race clearly now see Warren as the real competition.

Buttigieg, who's criticized O'Rourke's proposal as a "shiny object" that distracts from implementing gun control steps that enjoy widespread support, argued that O'Rourke's answer showed a lack of clarity on whether a mandatory gun buyback program could work.

"Well, the important thing is that health care costs will go down under my plan, too, without blowing a multi-trillion-dollar hole in the Treasury", Buttigieg said.

"Yeah, I think just as in any law that is not followed or flagrantly abused, there have to be consequences or else there is no respect for the law", O'Rourke replied.

"If someone does not turn in an AR-15, an AK-47 - one of these weapons of war - or brings it out in public and brandishes in an attempt to intimidate, as we saw when we were at Kent state recently, then that weapon will be taken from them", O'Rourke said.

"We can not wait for purity tests", he said.

Presidential candidate and South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg on Wednesday blasted Sen. We need somebody to have - to really have this debate the right way, you've got to have two real heavyweights on both sides.

O'Rourke also implied that Buttigieg's caution on confiscations was the result of poll testing and focus groups.

"Everyone on this stage recognizes, or at least I thought we did, that the problem is not other Democrats who don't agree with your particular idea of how to handle this. The problem is the National Rifle Association and their enablers in Congress, and we should be united in taking the fight to them".
