Their debate may be over, but the fiery moments between Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, are going strong off stage.

After the Sanders campaign announced their “I Wrote the Damn Bill” sticker during the Democratic debate on Tuesday night, Ryan's team hit back with their own accessory reading "You Don't Have to Yell."
Both stickers are nods to biting moments between the two candidates, with the Sanders' jab a reference to their debate over Medicare for All, while the Ryan piece came after the two feuded over the fossil fuel industry.
If we truly care about lifting up every voice and fighting on behalf of the issues that keep Americans up at night, let’s start by making our conversations civil and productive. #YouDontHaveToYell pic.twitter.com/OLsP1qeSze— Tim Ryan (@TimRyan) July 31, 2019
The squabbles didn't stop there.
People for Bernie responded to Ryan's sticker with, "It took Tim Ryan's campaign over 12 hours to make this bad sticker. It took us 5 minutes to make this good graphic: Yell. Vote. Organize."
Ryan then responded by saying, "Bernie organizers can make a sticker in 5 minutes but it took his campaign 8 months to pay their workers $15 an hour.”
During Tuesday night's debate, Ryan asked whether Sanders could guarantee that benefits of Medicare-for-All for union members, who he said would lose their private health care, would be as good as the benefits that their representatives fought to negotiate.
Sanders replied that the benefits would be better because of the comprehensiveness of Medicare for All, before Ryan cut him off.
“You don’t know that, Bernie,” Ryan interjected.
“I do know it," Sanders shot back, to roaring applause. "I wrote the damn bill.”
Ryan, at another point, told Sanders "You don't have to yell" in response to Sanders -- saying the U.S. can't ignore the pollution that was caused by the fossil fuel industry.
