There Was a Massive Difference Between How Mike Pence and Kamala Harris Addressed Healthcare During Debate

During last night’s Vice Presidential debate, Senator Kamala Harris took on current Vice President Mike Pence. And there was one detail many found particularly interesting…

Following the explosive debut presidential debate nearly 2 weeks ago, it was now time for the vice nominees to have their say.

A health and safety precaution requested by the Biden-Harris campaign, the Associated Press reported.

Many are worried about Pence’s exposure to the virus, considering the President was infected just a few days ago.

As should all future debates planned for this year.

Which is dominated heavily by the coronavirus crisis, the very thing that hospitalized the President just days ago.

Let’s meet our candidates, and get an insight into what we can expect from them.

Pence, a socially conservative Christian from the midwest, has been rehearsing for the debate with Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, playing the role of the Democratic candidate, the Axios website reported.

And some of his preparation has involved developing ways to strike his female opponent “without opening himself up to criticism that he is acting in a disrespectful or sexist way,” according to NBC News.

Harris, a former criminal prosecutor and progressive Californian, is widely considered to be a formidable debater.

So people were expecting a real show.

And it is anticipated that she will be rebuking both Trump and Pence over their response to coronavirus, healthcare, and beyond.

But, given the President’s ill-health, she will tone it down.

On one hand, there was an overwhelming wave of support for Pence.

The differing Republican and Democratic stances on public healthcare…

“On the other hand, Donald Trump is in court trying to get rid of the Affordable Care Act, which means that you will lose protections if you have preexisting conditions,” she pointed out.

“If you have a preexisting condition, heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, they’re coming for you.”

“If you’re under the age of 26 on your parents’ coverage, they’re coming for you.”
