South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) are still going after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in a continuation of the most recent Democratic presidential debate.
Both candidates appeared on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, where they maintained their support for a public option in their health-care plans. Neither were satisfied with the Warren campaign's efforts to clarify how the senator plans to pay for Medicare-for-all, either. Both Buttigieg and Klobuchar reiterated they are wary of any plan that would kick people off their private insurance.
2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on his vision for Medicare for All: "The issue here really isn’t terminology, the issue is what is it that we’re going to deliver and does it give everybody access to Medicare and choice. My plan does both of those things.” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/Binacfgw3h

Klobuchar, for her part, also said her plan, which also includes a non-profit public option, would "build" rather than "trash" ObamaCare.
