At the first debate since Warren climbed into a virtual tie with former Vice President Joe Biden in many Democratic opinion polls, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar accused Warren of being evasive on her plan for universal healthcare.

Warren said she would not sign any bill that required a tax increase on middle-class families and promised the proposal, which is also backed by her fellow progressive, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, would lower costs for everyday Americans.
