Sen. Sanders, House progressives propose bill to cancel student debt

Amid controversy Biden gets support from highest ranking black member of Congress

Beto O'Rourke of Texas and John Delaney of Maryland, along with Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and ex-Obama housing secretary Julián Castro. Kamala Harris (D-Calif), Andrew Yang, Marianne Williamson, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), and former Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.).

The liberal firebrand from MA has steadily risen in polls over the last two months and is drawing crowds on the campaign trail by using an expansive portfolio of proposals on a series of issues to brand herself as a candidate with a plan.

Here are some key moments to watch for during the matchups.

A wild card could be President Trump, who said last week he might tweet his reactions live during the debate, which will take place as he flies aboard Air Force One to Osaka, Japan, for a G20 summit, and a visit to South Korea.

The Sanders proposal comes two days before the first debates involving candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for the right to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in November 2020.

Per NBC, candidates will be given 60 seconds to answer each question and 30 seconds to respond to follow-ups.

In the crowded field, Mr Sanders is now running just behind former Vice-President Joe Biden in the marathon race to become the party's standard-bearer. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen.

"The cost will march toward $3 trillion and benefit a lot of wealthy families and future high-earners", Brian Riedl, an analyst at the Manhattan Institute, a libertarian-leaning think tank, said, according to the report.

Candidates in primary contests have long embraced more extreme positions to try to appeal to their base before moderating ahead of the general election to win over independents.

Of those surveyed, 56 percent of Democrats said that they would prefer a candidate who could beat Trump rather than a candidate they would agree with.

As England's Eoin Morgan breaks record, Twitterati has some fun with memes
Afghanistan have lost their opening four matches, but they are far from a pushover and we can't afford to underestimate them. They now have the highest ever total in ODIs, most sixes in an innings by both a player and a team.

That could lead to some fireworks.

Candidates have been brushing up on their policies and rehearsing their zingers for weeks. "So it's very hard to break through".

With a field this big, some strategists expect the attacks among opponents to start early and come often.

Biden, who is the front-runner, could take the bulk of the fire.

Sanders' support for this latest plan represents an escalation in his policy arms race with Warren, who released a plan in April that would eliminate up to $50,000 of student loan debt for people earning less than $100,000 per year. Pramila Jayapal, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, hopes to tax Wall Street at 0.5 percent on all trades, fees on bonds and derivatives.

"About a third of all student loan debt is owned by the top 25% of incomers, so people who are quite wealthy", said Dr. Schaff. Candidates needed to either have 65,000 donors or have at least 1 percent of the vote in a series of polls.

The system left Warren as the lone representative of the five top-polling candidates on Wednesday night.

Which candidates appear on stage each night was chosen at random.

"For some of them, this might be their best opportunity to land a blow", said Joel Payne, a Democratic strategist.
