Dr.Öz and Fetterman Share Their Cards live on air
Famous doctor Mehmet Öz, who entered politics in the USA, and Fetterman, his Democratic opponent in the by-election, came face to face on the television broadcast.
In the midterm elections to be held in the USA on November 8, the Turkish-born Republican candidate from the state of Pennsylvania, who is running for the American Senate, Dr. Mehmet Öz and Democrat Deputy Governor John Fetterman shared their trump card in the live election debate program on television.
The focus of the live broadcast, which took place in the city of Harrisburg, was the economy, abortion, public safety, immigration, education and foreign policy. In the opening speeches of the much-anticipated debate, not only among the Pennsylvania electorate but throughout the United States, Fetterman accused Öz of being a television character and lying, while Öz also criticized Fetterman for being in an “extreme position”.
Öz said, “I want to bring literature, balance, things you want to see to Washington. “John Fetteman overdoes everything, and these extreme positions hurt us all,” he said.
Dr.Öz and Fetterman TAX DISCUSSION
In the question posed to the candidates on the subject of economy, Öz pointed out that Fetterman tried to raise the taxes to 46 percent as the deputy governor and said, “He did this by not paying his own taxes 67 times. Again, he didn’t pay taxes 67 times, but he raised mine and yours. “These are radical and extreme positions,” he said.
Oz criticizes Fetterman for being disconnected from Pennsylvanians’ values, saying, “As a surgeon making tough decisions in the operating room, I’m going to get them to cut the budget so they don’t have to raise taxes on a population that is desperately suffering from high inflation.”
Fetterman also stated that it is necessary to fight inflation, “However, Dr. Öz cannot understand, you know, he has 10 huge honorable mentions,” he preferred to bring up the claims about his rival’s assets.
Abortion and Migration, Dr.Öz and Fetterman
The issue of abortion, which is one of the hottest topics on the country’s agenda, came to the table in the election debate between Öz and Fetterman.
Emphasizing that he is against the federal government’s involvement in abortion discussions, Öz said, “States should make their own abortion decisions. “Women, doctors, local political leaders… democracy must be allowed for our nation to come up with the best ideas.”
Fetterman also stated that he believes that the decision on abortion should be between women and doctors, and said that he will fight to re-enact the 1973 “Roe-Wade decision” that constitutionally guaranteed the right to abortion across the country, which the US Supreme Court canceled in June.
From the use of underground energy sources in the state to the rising crime rates in the cities, the issue of immigration also came to the fore as candidates tried to establish their positions throughout the debate.
Pointing out that the Democrats created a huge disaster on the border with their immigration policies, Öz said, “I understand the difficulties at the border. “My parents were also immigrants, I know what legal immigration offers us, but the fully permeable open borders that John Fetterman promotes created a human crisis where cartels take advantage of their human smuggling operations.”
When asked about foreign policy in the live broadcast, Fetterman stated that he sees China as the biggest threat to the United States, while Öz, referring to the nuclear agreement with Iran and Russia, which caused the energy crisis with the Ukraine war, said, “It is the best way to push back Putin. The best way and the best lesson to be taught to China is the superior dominance of American energy,” he said, adding that the underground energy resources in Pennsylvania and the country should be used for this.
