The December edition of the Democratic debates take place on Thursday, Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. ET.

Seven of the 15 Democratic candidates will take the stage late Thursday.

The seven include Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Andrew Yang, Amy Klobuchar, and Tom Steyer.

Senator Warren has ruffled feathers with her proposed wealth tax and her call to break up big tech—such as Facebook (FB) - Get Report, Apple (AAPL) - Get Report, Amazon (AMZN) - Get Report, and Google’s parent Alphabet (GOOGL) - Get Report.

But besides for Warren, what other candidates have proposals that could impact Wall Street?

Well, here are the top three proposals for each Democratic candidate that will take the stage during the December debate.

Watch the full video above for more.

Elizabeth Warren

We have already touched on two of the top three topics that have caught Wall Street’s attention from Senator Warren.

But there’s one more proposal that she’s pushing – she wants to hold CEO’s, such as Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, accountable when they fail to protect user privacy.

Joe Biden

Unlike Warren, the former Vice President doesn’t think that now is the time to break up big tech.

However, he wants to hold social media companies liable for posts. “I, for one, think we should be considering taking away the exemption that they cannot be sued for knowingly...promoting something that's not true,” he’s said. 

But what about the other candidates such as Sanders, Buttigieg, Yang, Klobuchar and Steyer? Well, watch the full video above for more.
