Who won the GOP debate? social media on fire since then
Everyone seems to be asking as to who won the GOP 2015 debate tonight. There is no denying the fact that this was a very interesting and lively debate with no candidate ready to give in.
While the question that who won the debate is debatable, one man was debatable. Marco Rubio was the man who faced persistent attack from all sides. Rubio is under attack for not attending Senate meetings besides missing votes.
With time running short until the first nominating contest in three months, the Republicans were quick to leap to the attack at a debate that featured frequent personal criticism and many candidates talking over the moderators in their haste to make points.
Rubio, a U.S. senator from Florida, defended his record of missing about one-third of his Senate votes this year while campaigning for the White House and said a Florida newspaper’s call for him to resign was evidence of “the bias that exists in the American media today.”
Jeb Bush who attacked him in sharpest words asked him to resign.Â “Just resign and let someone else take the job…This is a six-year term, and you should be showing up to work. Was this a French work week?” said Bush.
CNBC moderators were also attacked by one of the presidential hopefuls for partisan questions. Â Ted Cruz, Senator from Texas ignored a question on the debt limit to criticize the CNBC debate moderators for the questions they had posed to candidates.
While attacking the moderator he saidÂ “The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media…This is not a cage match. How about talking about the substantive issues?”
In the meatime former HP boss Carly Fiorina vowed to reduce the complicated tax code to three pages. “Three pages is about the maximum a single business owner, or a farmer, or just a couple can understand without hiring somebody,” she said.
Carson who has become among the top contenders said his plan, which is based on religious tithing principles, would get rid of deductions and loopholes and constitute a flat rate of about 15 percent that would be sufficient to fund a sharply reduced government.Â “Remember, we have 645 federal agencies and sub-agencies. Anybody who tells me that we need every penny in every one of those is in a fantasy world,” Carson said.
Meanwhile Donald Trump came under sharp attack fromÂ Ohio Governor John Kasich. He called his tax plan “a fantasy.”Â “We are on the verge of picking, perhaps, someone who cannot do this job…You gotta pick somebody who has experience” he said.
