Sunny Side Up - Beto O'Rourke Name Game

The former Democratic congressman, from Texas, is fresh off the campaign trial in Iowa.

Monday afternoon at 3:30, O’Rourke is scheduled to make an appearance at Gino’s Cento Anno on Denison Avenue. This is a first-time visit to Northeast Ohio.

Much has been said of the candidate who narrowly lost to Ted Cruz in the Texas U.S. Senate race. Much has also been said about his name and just how to pronounce it.

Sunny Side Up hit the streets of Cleveland to put people to the test.

O’Rourke recently sat down with CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King. The two discussed a wide range of issues including taxes and healthcare.

King asked the candidate how he intends to provide affordable health care for all Americans.

“So the-- the goal should be universal guaranteed high quality health care. I think we complement, supplement those who have private employer insurance with the ability to be covered under Medicare," O’Rourke told King. “That allows us-- sooner than almost any other plan to insure every single American has the ability to see a doctor, afford their prescriptions, or take their child to a therapist. I think Medicare for All is one of the possible paths.”
