Modern Healthcare

When the Democratic presidential candidates take the stage in Las Vegas Tuesday night for their first primary debate, they’re likely to tangle over their willingness to tweak the Affordable Care Act and how to tackle rising prescription drug prices.

Front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton will be flanked by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is surging in the polls, and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. Also debating will be former Sens. Jim Webb of Virginia and Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, who are considered long shots for the 2016 nomination.
