Klobuchar: Obamacare is more popular than Trump

Sen. Amy Klobuchar spoke on the Affordable Care Act and how she believes it's better to build on the plan than try to bring in something new, splitting from Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren who back Medicare for All.

"The Affordable Care Act is 10 points more popular than the president of the United States. The answer is to build on it."
— Sen. Amy Klobuchar

Sen. Amy Klobuchar said on "Meet the Press" Sunday that she will support the Democratic nominee but that Sen. Bernie Sanders should not be "leading the ticket."

What they're saying: "I think Senator Sanders' idea of kicking 149 million Americans off their current health insurance in four years is wrong. That's why I don't think he should be leading the ticket. I think I should be leading the ticket because my ideas are much more in sync with bold ways of getting things done," Klobuchar argued.

Six candidates squared off at Tuesday night's Democratic debate, which took place in Iowa but began with a global policy discussion on war and America's record in the Middle East.

The big picture: Recent tensions with Iran offered candidates the opportunity to draw sharp contrasts between their stances on foreign intervention. On more personal issues, like the rift between Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, the candidates were more subdued, emphasizing the importance of solidarity against President Trump with just three weeks until the Iowa caucuses.
