i want to build on it, get the cost down, get the prescription drug cost down. senator sanders wants us to start all over again. >> i am on the health education labor committee. that committee wrote the affordable care act. the idea that i would dismantle health care in america while we're waiting to pass a medicare for all is just not accurate. patrick: this is the first time clinton and senator sanders have debated without former candidate martin o'malley, who suspended his campaign after the iowa caucuses. on the republican side, marco rubio as in a big bump in the polls. in that new poll from our sister station wmur, he is up seven points from likely voters in the new hampshire primary. donald trump remains in the lead at 29%. ted cruz, john kasich, and jeb bush have also risen in the polls. allyson: richard harpootlian is throwing his support behind bernie sanders. you may recall harpootlian is the former chairman of the south

the highest priced ticket at this super bowl is pushing $200,000. you can get a relatively cheap ticket in the nosebleed section for about $2900, but if you want to get closer, you are looking at $10,000-$12,000 a ticket. brad: the average price is just shy of $5,000 per ticket. it is obviously, very expensive and the players are offered 15 tickets, not for free, but to buy. trey boston had to purchase 15 tickets at $800 a piece. that goes for everybody in the family. it doesn't matter if you are 40 years old or seven months old. the prize does not change. marc: a historically expensive super bowl 50.
