Presidential party nominee runner-ups, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX, engaged in a heated debate about Obamacare's fate in a debate sponsored by CNN on Tuesday evening. 

In his opening remarks, Cruz blasted Sanders and the Democratic party for wanting to control health care.

"I trust you and I trust your doctors," he said.

The first question came from a breast cancer patient who fears that the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act would leave people like her--those with preexisting health conditions--without lifesaving insurance.

On the same subject, Sanders said it is the "moral and right thing to do."

Sanders shifted the conversation to health care costs, pointing out the accessibility of quality insurance across the income spectrum. 

"If you are very rich, you can get the best health care in the world," he said.

When asked about Obamacare's repeal and replacement during his weekly news conference, House Speaker Paul Ryan said the GOP plan to roll out new legislation could occur this year.

“The legislating is going to be done this year. We are going to be done legislating with respect to health care and ObamaCare this year,” Ryan explained. 


That, however, stood in contrast with President Trump's Super Bowl interview in which he said it could take the GOP until 2018 to replace the ACA.
