Democratic Debate: Sanders Hits Clinton on Iraq, Wall Street Ties

But Clinton has not outright endorsed Gillibrand's bill and has only said she will detail her plan in the future.

Senator Sanders said the donations to Secretary Clinton are compromising.

In Sat.'s 2nd Democratic debate, Clinton was forced to run away in no unsure terms from Obama's "contained" remark.

Sanders' campaign also questioned the reasons behind Clinton opposition to his Medicare-for-all plan, citing support she has received from pharmaceutical companies.

Sanders, for his part, quickly shot back, asserting that any tax hikes would be justified because of the additional benefits citizens were bound to receive as a result, the news channel noted. However, many of the member polls, conferences, and leadership discussions listed in the announcement happened before Sanders and Martin O'Malley, the third Democratic contender declared their candidacy.

During Saturday night's Democratic Presidential debate, candidate Bernie Sanders said he will "apologize to nobody" for his intent to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 dollars an hour. Let's be frank here... You know, not only do I have hundreds of thousands of donors, most of them small. They expect to get something. "I don't believe that the people watching were applauding the notion that Secretary Clinton was pumping up the smoke screen and wrapping herself in the tragedy of 9/11", O'Malley told CNN's Alisyn Camerota.

So, you know, it's fine for you to say what you're going to say, but I looked very carefully at your proposal.

During the Central Iowa Democrats fall barbecue on Sunday, Clinton's aides were put on the defensive over the controversial comment.

"As President, I will be proud to stand with SEIU and fight alongside them - to defend workers' right to organize and unions' right to bargain collectively, to raise incomes for working people and the middle class, and to ensure that hardworking Americans can retire with dignity and security", Clinton said in a statement after the endorsement.

The candidates were asked to talk about the horrifying terror attacks in Paris and weigh in on the statement made by Republican bet Senator Marco Rubio that "we are at war with radical Islam". It just seems like Hillary Clinton has too many ties to Wall Street. "It was good for the economy and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country", she said.

Clinton "vehemently offers support for Wall Street as post-911 recovery effort". "That is the sort of company, that is the sort economic advice that she would follow".


The SEIU said in its press release that Clinton has been a leader on such issues as immigration reform with a path to citizenship, voting rights, criminal justice reform and the Affordable Care Act.
