What’s Really Behind Corporate Promises on Climate Change?
"And corporate America. And I'm curious how much of this is the big tech tail wagging the Fortune one thousand's What Ragging the fortune 1000 dog. In other words, you see Facebook and Twitter being more aggressive YouTube and Google, obviously, as well being more aggressive with censorship, and how much of that is saying, Well, you know, these are the cultural mavens and we need access to their communication channels. We don't want to run. Afoul of Their political mores. And so we're going to essentially follow the corporate culture of those big tech companies. Well, A lot of it is is in fact, as you say, being directed by a big tech, but a lot of is also coming from finance industry. Um, if you look at, for example, Black Rock, which is the largest Asset management firm in the world was almost $9 trillion. His assets under management for the past two years. Its CEO Larry think it sent a letter to the clients and two CEOs telling them that their primary Responsibility will be to, um Focus on specific sustainability, which is code for climate change a zoo their primary investment guidance. And so they expect for all companies to disclose any and all possible information about what they're doing with respect to climate change and how they're building their businesses around climate change and how they're preparing. Or this interpret to prevent this catastrophe on if they do not, uh Cooperate with what black rock demands in Black Rock will use its leverage to change boards of directors to change management to change the bylaws of the corporations there. Black Rock has an enormous amount of influence and with together with The other two large, passive investment firm, State Street and Vanguard. It can essentially impose its will on corporations and that's what they're doing. Yeah, I mean, this is this is just this is one big blob, and it's so one institution or institution or sector leader. You know, essentially serves the other. They sort of meld all together, and that includes We can't leave out the federal government. The nominee. The bite nominee for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau gentleman named RoWhite Chopper to, uh, who is a Elizabeth Warren protege. Has come up with a new idea to paper he opened he authored a couple of years ago for a think tank for a public integrity. Protection agency. The director would serve for 10 years subject to removal proceeding similar to that of a federal judge, basically like they envisioned for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, untouchable by the elected branches. And it would regulate political activities. Restrictions on advocacy, declaring that, for example, the use of think tanks, another nonprofit organizations to further the economic interests of its benefactors. Their policy research search should be impermissible. And it would look at issue based on profits progressive or conservative tea. Oh, identify whether they're advancing someone's interests, which, of course they always are, and if they are, then they could be subject to federal regulation. S O s. So you have that culture coming potentially from the federal government. I mean, that's just in idea form right now, but it gives you a new insight into the perspective and the mind's eye of Thies regulators at the highest levels of the federal government. Combined with what you're getting from some of the most powerful CEO owes and finance and tech and you, you know, it's sort of goes back to the question I asked previously. How does this all and other than badly like in some sort of Chinese communist authoritarian form of societal organization? Well, I certainly think we're moving too. Um or Authoritarian state, and that's that's the point of all of this is in the book. I trace the history of The, uh, anti Democratic nature of, UM administration but Public administration and business administration over the last Probably century and a half to arrive at the point today where we have not just government. But as you say, big tech and big finance on Big entertainment, all Intending. To do big things to change the way the world works and to go around the people in order to do so. That's the whole nature of this is its anti Democratic. It is. Intended to usurp the power of the people and to impose these political beliefs from the cop down against the will of the people. So it clearly it's authoritarians by nature. Um, I think before we end up in a totalitarian type state, however, were probably see Aiden. Natural backlash in the finance community. Where, uh, you know any type of investments, uh, that miss allocates capital eventually creates a problem and Allocating capital specifically based on social goals is clearly in this allocation of capital. And it will eventually cause problems. Um and well, you know? Well, that backlash be big enough. And soon enough is the question. Well, I think the backlash will be big enough and it will be soon enough. But unfortunately it's going to cost a lot of ordinary people. Ah, lot of money When I say Black Rock has $9 trillion in assets under management there that they're leveraging that that money isn't Larry thinks that money isn't isn't black rocks that money is yours and mine and everybody who Who investor has a four Oh one k or an I R a S o. I think that they're they're hard times coming. Um But eventually I think that will be a backlash against this on. Do you know the question is just gonna be how much will it cost us?

Imagine a life without Google
"Up one day and google. All of google is gone. G mail search. Google drive youtube google home. Google maps gone in australia. That world without google might not be that far off lawmakers. There are pushing for some regulations on the silicon valley giant and in response. Google has threatened to turn off its services in the entire country. Joining me discuss recode reporter and host of the new season of podcasts. You listen to called land of giants and it shrink affari history. Hey tiny so. The new season drops today. Congratulations everyone should listen to it right now. or after. this is over In this season you chronicle google's rise from tech startup to this global powerhouse that is now fighting with australian government walking. You tell us about australia. Tell me what's happening there with regulators and how this might play out. Yes so it's a real standoff between australian government and google and basically what the government wants is for google to pay publishers. More like newspapers magazines for new snippets. That show up. Google search but also and probably even more critically for google. They want google to open up their secret algorithms around how they rank results in search and notify any kind of news organization if they end up changing that algorithm and that is something that will really close chest and does not want to share and in land of the giants. We actually went into the origins of google's first revolutionary algorithm called page rank and You know why was it so important and something that you would never want to give away if you're google because that's exactly what makes you google. What would that mean to pull out of the country. Does that mean if someone in australia goes to. Google dot com. They don't get anything. Possibly it could mean that you cannot do a google search. You cannot Open g mail. I think that The full scope of it hasn't really been discussed because at this point they're negotiating right. It's a negotiation and google has said this is a last resort option. They would not wanna poll google's products. But who knows it could be something in between they could just block news articles from showing up so you could still find your local pizza hut. But you couldn't find an article about world politics. Yeah i mean it feels like this Matters to non. Australians which i assume is most of our listeners. apologies to those over there but for most listeners this is about one country. And you know they're fighting some tech giant. Whatever like. Tell me why i should care. The big deal is that this is kind of a template for how governments are going to deal with google in the future right because google and itself has become so powerful that it's almost like its own nation state and you know if a stray elia really wins in the standoff. It'll be a flex of power and so it could be something that we see happen. Not just a miss really about in england in the uk who knows maybe even in the us one day and it's a real test of who's gonna win and zooming out from this right. This is a conversation that's happening. Not just not just the united states but everywhere right about is google chew powerful. That's the theme. You look at during land of the giants. Tell me about how. Google might fair under a democratic administration that frankly like the republican administration that preceded. It is preparing serious. Antitrust action against the titans. That's rates for google right now. It is a very important critical and nerve wracking time. Because they're facing this historic lawsuit. The us government under president trump's administration has sued them. And said you know cues them being a monopoly and now this new administration under biden is inheriting that case and everyone is looking to see who is biden's new attorney general. Who is he going to pick to lead up. This google case is going to be even harder on google. Is he going to expand the scope of the case. How much attention is he going to give it. And we don't really know yet but we do know that there are really strong currents Within the democratic party pushing to be aggressive in breaking up google's power and that comes from people like elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. Who have campaigned around this idea and have a a strong progressive flank of supporters in the party so You know no one knows for sure. But let's say we do know that biden is feeling the pressure to take on big tech and to not be afraid to have his administration go after google and other big tech companies like amazon and facebook. So google is so big at this point that when we talk about antitrust action. We probably aren't really thinking big enough. Frankly i mean. Tell me if google were in australia or you know. Be broken up in the united states. Can you just give me like a sense of the vastness of google empire like. What are we taking for granted in this conversation. I think we take for granted a lot because we just use it every day. It's the calm this integral part of our lives. If google's products were to be pulled from the internet. I basically personally wouldn't probably be able to do my job or even get around with google maps or something like that right and google offers most of these products largely for free so to give google credit. You know they've made these tools. That are so incredibly helpful on the other hand. Are we to reliant on them should there be more competitors in the space. Those are the kinds of questions that politicians are asking right now.
Student Loan Forgiveness: Democrats Debate How Much To Cancel
"Five million americans have student debt and president biden has promised to do something about that. He's proposed cancelling up to ten thousand dollars per borrwer. Democrats in congress are pushing for more though fifty thousand dollars per person. Here's npr's listen Joe biden has made it clear one point six trillion dollars in federal student. Debt is a problem but the question of how much of it to cancel is still on the table. Let's take a look at the plan. The president supports cancelling ten thousand dollars in debt per borrower or. Who have the lowest suit deaths are the ones who struggle the most adam. Looney is an economist. At the university of utah he says not all debt is the same borrowers who completed. A bachelor's often have higher debt burdens but are able to pay that debt back. The ones really struggling are the ones in default. When you're in default government can take your tax refund part of your paycheck when you get older. You can even lose part of your social security. Roughly eight million borrowers are in default and most of them have less than ten thousand dollars in debt. The amount that you borrow is largely dependent on how many years you will often students who drop out after a semester or a year or two just on accumulate very much dead. If you never got that degree you can't get a job to help pay off that debt. Looney argues that anything higher than ten thousand cancellation runs. The risk of awarding borrowers. Who don't need help. He points to research that shows thirty. Six percent of student debt is owned by the top twenty percent of income holders but income is different than wealth household was student debt. Tend to have the least amount of wealth. That's the value of all your assets minus debt. Now let's take a look at the plans to cancel fifty thousand dollars in student at senators elizabeth warren and chuck schumer among those behind. This idea. they say a more forgiving cancellation policy is also about racial justice. And would target gaps in wealth especially among black families. Black households are more likely to have student debt and more of it than white or latino families. The debt crisis in is dish. Proportionally impacting borrowers of color and communities of color. Black borrowers in particular ashleigh harrington the senior policy counsel at the center for responsible lending. So when we talk about cancelation we have to start their black borrowers. She says can struggle even if they get their degree. Thanks to racism. In the labor market more debt cancellation would give them a up. You have families were the color who have never been able to build wealth. They don't have intergenerational wealth fender having intergenerational deck many black and latino families missed out on ways to build wealth in the past like homeownership and job training programs due to racist policies researchers who study and talk to student. Loan borrowers say now student. Loan debt is thing. That's holding them back in a forthcoming report. The center for responsible lending black borrowers. Who would have all of their debts. Raced at fifty thousand was forgiven. Have median assets worth just seventy six thousand dollars in most cities. That's not even a house and of course there's the pandemic we are in the list of a crisis it and so we're for the place where count out. Inauguration gonna cut it regardless of the dollar figure most advocates. For cancelling say the thing that makes it so appealing is it can be done by the president through executive action without congress. President biden has long said he'd prefer to use legislation but in early february. The white house signaled it was willing to consider doing it with the flick of a pen.

Potentially billions of dollars. Huh? Huh? Huh? But he's not. I mean, not shorting but didn't like Romney do something like that, where him and his company would take over companies and they would borrow or spend off of their credit and then bankrupt the company, the company I don't know if Romney did it, but certainly that has been in the past What these hedge funds have done, and this is perfectly legal. They take a short position they without explaining how you're short a stock. They're basically betting that a company is not going to go well do well and that a stock price world will fall.

"Today. Millions of voters across fixed dates will cast their ballot for the two viable Democratic candidates. Left Joe Biden Bernie Sanders. What began as a contest but historic diversity? Along racial and gender lines has now come down to men. Seventy plus both white and as someone who covered Senator Kamla Harris and Elizabeth Warren Warren especially who wants lead in national polling. I'm left to wonder. How did we get here? How did it end up this way? Fancy doorbells where you look at it with your argument politics less three to name a stead. S Dead Yes. So the next day me and Producers Austin Mitchell and Jessica Chung Goto North Andover Massachusetts to meet with a pretty typical war and supporter. Lynn Literally Della One south on her husband. Tom Is there to ovaries and her cousin. Cathleen take your coat and we all sit down in their living room. Whether you do I am a nurse but I teach exercise. Now that's what Giving what exercise. Well I teach a class. That's about the first half is aerobic. And then there's some stretching and strength training. It's about an hour class at the senior center in Lawrence also. How long have you been in North Andover since one thousand nine hundred eighty nine? And when did you First Notice Senator Warren? I noticed Senator Warren years ago I think it was around twenty twelve. I happen to be reading the paper one morning and I noticed that A CONGRESSMAN NAMED TODD. Aken had said a horrible thing about women and pregnancy. Saying that if a woman were to get pregnant as a result of rape then her body has a way of getting rid of that it seems to be first of all from what I understand from doctors. That's really rare. If it's a legitimate rape the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down and my eyes just flew open and I said Oh my God. This man is in Congress. I was flabbergasted and I said to my husband who is that woman. There was at the same time I was not happy. With Scott Brown. Who was a senator? At the time he doesn't stand up for women's reproductive rights and economic security he co sponsored legislation to let employers deny women coverage for birth control or even mammograms. He had to and I said. Who's that woman that's GonNa run against Got Brown? I heard that a woman is going to run Scott. I'm Elizabeth Warren. I'm running for the United States Senate and before you hear a bunch of ridiculous attack and I want to tell you who I am like a lot of you. I came up the hard way and I said I have to do something to help her get elected but Washington. Still Ring for the big guys. And that's got to change change I'm Elizabeth. Warren and I approve this message because I want Massachusetts families to have a level playing field and so then becomes a volunteer for the war and Senate campaign. I was always on board with Elizabeth right after that. Why do you think you felt so drawn to the list with more because in many ways she's me she's me? She has the same feelings that I have. She's actually very close to my age. She has a wonderful way of kind of looking into your heart and mind. She's interested in you. She's interested in in the people before we're here for the chicken. I can very handsome. Elizabeth has that high end. She's brilliant and despite the odds you elected the first woman senator to feel. I mean she wins the race. Obviously how did that feel? Oh my God. It was so exciting. I still say that without crying. It was so exciting so then in two thousand sixteen I was for Hillary Hillary. I was very invested in having Hillary be president and she had all the qualifications she had. She was more qualified than anybody ever been president in my opinion but because she was a woman. I knew it would be difficult but I still thought she could win. Did you know people are? Did you hear people say I won't vote for Clinton because she's not like that but he is what I did here. I was talking to a woman who was kind of a stranger. But we were chatting and We were talking about politics and about how how we feel about certain things so I guess it was like immigration climate change and things like that and this woman was on board with all of the democratic ideals and then I mentioned Hillary Clinton and she said Oh I hate her and I said really because she's the one who stands for all of these things that we're talking about now no constand. I said well why. Why don't you like her up? I have no idea I said is it. Because she's an aggressive woman she too aggressive and she too loud does she. Express yourself too much and her reply was no. I don't know why so my a minute later. I mentioned Elizabeth Warren. She's only confidant her either. I was like a year. She agrees with you about everything all the things that you're saying you believe in. She is promoting no well. I cost Dander so I know I mean I. I've been women my whole life so I know very well that that is the reason. Even women will vote against women because they're women Nara people out there. Who have this idea that you're not trustworthy that they don't like you for some reason. What is that about in your opinion joy? Obviously I've thought a lot about it because I don't like to hear it so I need to figure out what's behind it. I am a more serious person. A more reserved person than is kind of in the public Arena these days so I think people say well you know. She's serious she's reserve. Can I really like? What does it in West Linton? What's in I don't understand? I understand that because I've been pretty much the same person my entire life. Better or worse right Clinton losing made a difference. Clinton losing did make it harder for me to think that a woman could win so this year with Elizabeth. Warren announces that she's running when has mixed feelings. I love that people were getting to know her all across the country. Hi Hi I'm raylene hybrid. I was wondering if there's ever a time in your life where somebody you really looked up to. Maybe a accept you as much and how you done fucked..

"Maker making heads for drake and Nicki Menaj and the woman trying to get her money back from Ben Nimmo planet money from NPR. He were back and we're speaking with Democratic candidate for the Presidency Elizabeth Warren. In this part of our conversation we dive into what she would do about immigration in her first one hundred days and how she feels about her performance so far. So we're going to talk a little bit now about immigration. You have one of the most comprehensive plans of any of the candidates out there you have called for a pathway to citizenship. But I'm interested in you know you identified previously years ago as a Republican by the way back many years ago. Some Republicans like Ronald Reagan. George H W Bush actually very progressive on immigration. If you will but can you explain how your opinion around immigration got formed so I was born and raised in Oklahoma I have three brothers. Two of them are still Republicans You know I'm like a lot of folks. I come from a family that has a broad range of political views. I like to think I'm going to get a vote Get the vote though from all of them so so. That's a good starting place. You know my views around Immigration. And the how immigration strengthen. Our nation probably started as a teacher and seeing in my classrooms. How how much stronger. Our classes are how much stronger. Our thinking is how much more we can do. When we're not all alike and that emigrants spring their own perspective. Their own world views their own energy and determination and I realized how they make our country stronger. Immigration did not make our country weaker. It makes it stronger stronger economically ties round the world. But I saw it. I in my classrooms and then I saw it in my own family. Would you my daughter? My daughter married a young man who immigrated to the United States In his early twenties he came from India From a family that was village. India and He didn't grow up speaking English. He taught himself English mostly in high school when he was near a place that had a television set. And watching SITCOMS A. That's that's how we learned English. He emigrated to the United States. None of his family had ever thought of such a thing but he came here to build and he ended up Getting his education over here he met my daughter in school They married and He He eventually became a citizen and mice. Three grandchildren Kerry dual passports. And it's not only the fact that my three grandchildren are the light of my life and also bruises but it's also to see how he adds to. America adds just another perspective another. It's like another layer of the growth. That makes America so extraordinary so this year for Christmas. You'll laugh but we had aunt Bee's Green Jello salad which dates back to somewhere in the nineteen thirties and promises. Same Dang Jello. I can give you the whole recipe if you want. Everyone makes fun of it but I will say everybody also eats it all up and at the same time. We had Tandoori chicken and Saga Pioneer and to me. What could ask for? That's better. That's an America that takes the old stuff and the new stuff? And you know what my granddaughter's will add another layer to it so at one point your daughters now husband. Before he became a citizen he had a green card which meant that he actually incredibly vulnerable gas because there was a time in this country when having greencard formed a kind of protection. But you know there isn't any so I WANNA get more specific with you in terms of your positions on immigration given where we are in the country right now. So will you call? If you are elected president an absolute halt to all deportations stop period. Yes so I am absolutely clear that we're going to stop deportations in the for the first hundred days until we can review every outstanding case and make certain that there is no one who is being deported in any way that is inconsistent with my overall views as president of the United States. The way I see it is that we need an immigration system that expands legal immigration that keeps families together that provides for a pathway to citizenship for the estimated eleven million people who are here who are undocumented. Not Not just for dreamers. This is for for everyone Who Fits in that and that we do not deport? Anyone If it is inconsistent with those principles of how we start so I'm trying to understand because that is you're saying one hundred days I guess the reason why I'm asking is because you understand kind of from a structural place that there is exists now an immigration detention and deportation industrial complex. It is multi multi million dollars. So that's why I'm getting very specific. You're like well a hundred days and I'm saying after one hundred days. Will you be prepared to start shutting down detention facilities to actually start and cleanness? I WANT TO SHUT DOWN. Four profit detention centers from the beginning. I don't believe that anyone should be making a profit from locking people up. I want to shut down for profit. Detention Centers. I want to shut down for profit prisons. I think they are fundamentally wrong. And that they are not part of the American legal system and should not be used and the point. You're making no one makes this point. I'm really glad you are because I want to. Underline the point you're making about money to be made in the current system of deportations as you say. A. L. Locked up and deport complex. That makes millions of dollars. This is a point I make over and over and over about the the decisions that get made in Washington and how they are influenced by money and that's true whether we're talking about immigration. We're talking about the price of prescription drugs. We're talking about getting Even reasonable background checks and getting weapons of war off our streets to to reduce gun violence whether we're talking about climate change over and over and over if there is a decision to be made in Washington it has been influenced by money by campaign contributions by lobbyists lawyers by bought and paid for experts by tilted think by PR firms. So I believe we need an anti-corruption plan to disrupt the influence of money. Here's the good news. I have to be biggest anti-corruption plan since Watergate. Here's the bad news. We need the biggest anti corruption plan since Watergate. It's got a bunch of moving parts to but the point is to disrupt the influence of money. So yes I make the commitment on closing for profit prisons. I'm there I'm willing to stand up to the deportation industry. But it's more than just an immigration. It's being felt all the way through our system and this is where we need to join our fights together to fight back against the influence of money in Washington. What about government run immigration detention facilities? Are you prepared to start closing those as well when you become president? Yes because we're not going to need nearly so many were not. We may need a small amount. There may be some people for whom this is necessary. But this deportation process has got to stop. Are you prepared to make a commitment to bring back? Parents who have been deported and separated from their children. What is your commitment specifically regarding for example? The children like all of these families that have been swept up zero. Tolerance would is the specificity of your commitment that you're making to them and to families who have been separated. We need to be a country that lives our values every single day and that means we do not separate children from their families. We do not take away parents from their children. I BELIEVE IN UNIFYING. Our families bringing our families back together. You Use specifically say things like we're gonNA open up these files and I want you to find the parents of these like that level of specificity. You're prepared to do this. Yes I am I as I said I have grandchildren. I can't imagine and I hear this in town. Halls must every town hall idea. Please remember the children who have been separated from their parents. Please remember the little ones who have been traumatized for life and we don't have a time machine. We can't undo the wrong things we to have done but we can at least try to get them back into their parents arms and offer the comfort of the family back together. That's what I believe in senator. We're GONNA talk about numbers And this is a little bit you know. The hard realities of numbers your fundraising is falling behind other candidates But of course you have candidates like Mike Bloomberg who don't have to worry about that and I'm sure that at this point you expected to be doing not only in terms of the results but in terms of the fundraising. What is your plan to drum up support to keep your campaign alive as you move in and difficult question. You're staying in absolutely and in fact since Iowa we've raised six million dollars online Think about what that means people who said through five dollar contributions and twenty five dollar contributions. I want you in this fight and I am in this fight with you now. Look I get it Michael. Bloomberg he can put his pocket change in and that's enough to buy tens of millions. Hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising and other candidates have decided they're going to finance their campaign by spending what seventy percent of their time with billionaires and corporate executives and listening to how they see the world me. I made the decision when I got in this that I was going to fund this entirely from the grassroots. If we're in America where the only way you get to be the Democratic nominee is either. You are a billionaire or you spend most of your time sucking up to billionaires then. We're going to have an America that works better and better for billionaires and worse and worse for everybody else's family so senator to close this interview when asked you. I've asked this to all the candidates who I've interviewed very specifically. What is your pitch to Latina? Latino voters in the United States and there are as you know several states coming up with large populations of Latinos and Latinas so of all of the candidates. Why should they vote for you? I don't believe anyone on. The Democratic side can get elected without the lat next participation in votes and Latinos and Latinas should make their voices heard. We have in America right now. That works great for those at the top. It works great for billionaires. It works great for giant corporations. It works great for those who want to make money by locking up children at the border It works great for them. But it's not working great for our families. We have this remarkable opportunity in twenty twenty to turn that around this remarkable opportunity to build an America where everybody gets a chance where everyone's child is worth investing in. I never thought I'd be in politics. I wanted to be a teacher all my life. My daddy ended up as a janitor. My mom worked a minimum wage. Job At sears. I wasn't supposed to be here. I wasn't supposed to have any of these trances but for me. The door open with a commuter college. The cost fifty dollars a semester. And that's why I got to be a special education teacher and from there was another door that opened in another door that opened. I believe in opportunity and I'm so deeply deeply grateful for the opportunity that was given to me by American taxpayers who made investments in our public schools. And the way I pay it back. Is I get up? Every day with a heart filled with gratitude and a heart filled with determination. The fight for all of our kids..

"And to people of Color look how it's generation after generation crushing opportunity. So we're saying young people go get a Go to college. If you have have to borrow money it's okay. It'll pay off. WHOA so I don't WanNa tell him not to go to college? College opens a million doors. How I think of this is it means? We can't just do this blindly so let me take two things that I said I'm GONNA do differently. I've got a plan for student. Loan debt forgiveness but of carefully worked it so we're forgiving debt for about ninety five percent of students and the reason for that is. I found the place ace where we can do it. That will help. Close the black white wealth gap. If you're not careful in how you do this. You actually expand the black white wealth else gap because there are some people out at the far edge who are well to do doctors. For example have a whole lot of student debt could afford to pay it back and More likely white and they drive it up in the drive up the cost of the program so for me it was important to look at the race data in making making a decision on where to draw these lines. So I get to sign that into law. We will close the black white wealth gap for or people who borrow money to go to school by more than twenty points. This is historic but that doesn't get to the root of the problem. So here's here's the rest of what I wanted. I WANNA make it possible for everybody to go to college without having to borrow money. So I've got tuition wishing free college at technical school to Your College for Your College at all of our state universities. That's great I'm expanding. The Pell grants grants so they would apply families with a little higher income and also provide a little more money but to me. That's not enough. I want to invest in the next generation of black leaders. I want to invest in the next generation of black teachers. So part of my education plan is all the things I described. Plus plus a fifty billion dollar investment into historically black colleges and universities so you could go tuition-free three to an historically black college or university whether it's public or private and they would have a special fund just for them and for those universities universities to do what they need to do whether it's invest more in their buildings hire more teachers. They may want more counselors more support staff new dorms but the point is make that investment. And it's partly for historic reasons. You know over a hundred years ago. We invested public dollars in all the state universities then turned around and mostly said to black people. You not welcome here the HPC's as you know were largely built through charity through the black churches people who pitched it a few extra the box and God bless the HPC's but they've been doing the most with the least for the longest time so so partly. I see this historically as saying let's level the playing field from all that we were doing wrong for so long but I also so think that is the investment in the future. This is about how everybody everybody gets shot at an education. How black women and whether they grow up in well to do families or they grow up in really poor families got a chance to get out there to get an education not take on debt and do with their lives? What ever it is they WANNA do one last question that I ask all of the guests? What advice you have even though being a white woman for the Brown girls and we have knob round girls listening out there that say I want to be like her? I want to be a teacher from Oklahoma who's able to become a US senator who's now running for president. What advice you have for those people were saying? I know I can and want to do so much more. Persist persist it is. It's they're always plenty of guys. He'll we'll tell you to sit down. He'll tell you to be quiet. Don't tell you why that's not a good idea. Tell you why that's too hard. We'll tell you why not to fight for that and they mean it only in your your own best interests dear but just quit you get plenty of advice like that. Don't listen to get out there and persist in the the thing is it doesn't mean you have to persist in the same thing. I knew what I wanted to do. From the time I was in second grade I wanted to be a public schoolteacher and by the time I graduated from college. My family didn't have the money for college application much less than me off to four years of university so I have a story that has logged bumps twists and turns and got married at Nineteen. I had scholarship college but got married at Nineteen and dropped out. Thought I'd given up on this. I found a commuter college that cost fifty dollars a semester finished my diploma and became a special education teacher. That was my dream job job but by the end of the first year I was visibly pregnant. The principal did what principals did in those days. He wished me luck and hired. I heard someone else for the job so there I am at home. I got a baby. I can't get a job. I can't get back into teaching at that point so I thought well I will. I will go to law. School found a public law. School cost me four hundred and fifty dollars a semester baby on hip when off three years of law school graduated visibly pregnant. took the bar. Pass the bar. You'll love his part practice law for about forty five minutes. It turned out just one for me but I didn't give up. I went into teaching law. My First Love was was teaching so I traded the little kids that I'd had in special Ed for big kids in law school and just just kept building it. I feel feel so blessed in my life so grateful for the opportunities that or in front of me a college that cost fifty dollars a chance to do something but most of all it was whenever I hit hit a wall I just feel around and figure there's a door here somewhere.

"Do you ever wonder senator if the things that make you such a potent communicator and storyteller and have earned you a significant base of support. Made you a front runner in the Democratic primary that that that might make it harder to actually solve the problems. You've been so nimble at diagnosing and that you've devoted so much of your career to studying all the way back to the eighty s and ninety S. No word alienating. No actually I don't and I'll tell you why cause your vision is very uncompromising to the question becomes are you on compromising look the Consumer Agency for example. Did we get everything. We wanted the consumer agency. No I can compromise. When it's the right thing to compromise? You know what I think. A lot of folks are talking about Anissa Nisa when you ask this question about kind of get along notion. It's how much are you going to yield to the corruption in the system the people who are handing out all campaign contributions and they've got all the lobbyists and they've got the bought and paid for experts whose voices they lift up and they give money to the think tanks cuss they liked. Wipe the system. How it works? And when they can't fight back on substance to go after the Messenger and they say oh well you to uncompromising well yeah if the question is do I think that Washington should be making policy policy based on a revolving door with wall. Street I yeah. I don't think it ought to be doing that. And we built a really great economy automomy for decades in which that didn't happen. What I'm asking for I believe is ultimately quite reasonable? The system has been broken for decades Donald Trump has just accelerated and now we see it big time that that means very much like following the crash of two thousand eight. The door for real change has opened a crack. Now now we could just say we WANNA go back to business as usual the way it was before Donald Trump came along. But not me. I see the door open to crack just like dead it following the financial crisis that it was hard to get through that door for you. It's not about me. Put Down your shoulder and hit as hard as you can at that door. Open it up up and make the changes. We need to make a country so the big question is if Elizabeth Warren is president. How hard you really going to lean into that door to try to crack it open? You know how much she gonNA stick with this. Principle based view issued a need help from the other side and issue willing to alienate. Not just the other side but our own allies in the name of principal. She's always been fighting as the outsider. And what happens. Once you become the insider doesn't uncompromising vision work for a president it's it's not about compromising compromising I think that's just not the key point here it's about having a vision about who you want to work for and then you make decisions as you go along their time time to compromise but you don't start out by saying you know what people are going to pose this so let's just start asking for only two percent that's just not the way to go about it. You lay out the vision and say that's where I'm going ahead in this because this is what I believe in. I believe in what we can do together. I believe in the America we can bill but we've got to have a vision for for that. It can't all be about just you know. Let's let's do slight changes because understand this. Republicans are going to fight us on slight changes ages. So if you're going to be a fight mega defy worth having an make a fight that will inspire millions of people to join. Thanks you bet. I think she signal here. The understands that being president is different from being an advocate pushing from the outside but if a brand fundamentally is to be be uncompromising if that is the brand the brand is to be principled. It's the thing that got her that public following in the first place even when she knew it was gonNA alienate her from some of the people. Closest you're what happens if she becomes president and she feels.

"I want to understand how you end up on that set. How do you become an authority on the US financial system? Where does that the interest really begin? So I grew up in a family that was hanging onto its place in the middle class by its fingernails els and always wanted to be a teacher start out as a public schoolteacher. I taught special education. I ended up going to law school. All practise law for about forty five minutes and then ended up right back in teaching so I teach contract law commercial corporate finance partnership finance bankruptcy horsey law debtor creditor law economics. That was about money. I was teaching in a question. That always was the center of what I did. Is What's happening to America's working families. Why is America's middle-class being hollowed out so piece at a time climb with this pulls me into his first studying? The families themselves that they're going up. Why were bankruptcy rates in the eighties? Going up and up and up. So during this period personal bankruptcies are skyrocketing people take it on way too much dead in fact individuals are going to personal bankruptcy court and asking for the equivalent of loan forgiveness to get back to zero and Elizabeth. Warren is fascinated need Bhai this phenomenon and what's driving it and where he came from and you know at this point. She's a registered Republican. I think so at this time. I've been registered independent registered Republican. And so she's going into this research project. She's making some assumptions that follow those politics so when I first started the research surge now this is before I quite all the pieces I thought Oh. My family was in a lot of financial trouble but we never declared bankruptcy courtesy so I was willing initially to kind of accept this notion that the people who ended up bankrupt up to people who end up pro did something wrong they are the prophets. Were the ones who went to the mall. And hooped it all off and they tried to buy a house possibly afford and four cars and then then it all came piling in on them and they took the easy way out and went bankruptcy and so she gets on a plane lane and literally start traveling the country and visiting bankruptcy courts. And I'm really thinking. Yeah I'M GONNA go check out these. The people who have carelessly run up debts and now they're coming to the court to be able to wash away these debts in a very generous bankruptcy program and is in court. I remember this in San Antonio Texas and a lot of courtrooms. They're quiet. They're often sort of dark and up at the front is a judge on a raised platform behind a heavy V imposing desk. And I'm sitting in the back and I watched the people who come in and they're the trust for church you can just tell. They've got on their finest there. Men and women who are clearly anxious must if the women are clutching tissues. Most people look just one step away from tears and as I sat there I started to think. Wait these are people. ooh who looked like my neighbors they look like folks in my family and they are so humiliated to be there. That was the part that hit me the hardest that it's easy for an economist to say. Oh bankruptcies great he'll yeah right you stand up and try to clearing publicly that you're you're a loser not just Out of money. You're in a hole. So deep that dead flat broke. Looks good to you. So you're realizing that your assumptions about who who is in trouble financially. Who goes bankrupt just wrong? There are many of them are solidly middle class. People who got good educations bought homes had families and then a serious medical problem a job loss divorce or death in the family and they were over a financial cliff and actually in ascending. It made me angry about it. That story of who those people are. It's one that was actively being pushed through the media actively being pushed by these bankers who put out Oh bought and paid for study to say people enrich themselves through bankruptcy as often as the law allows no the the committee will come to order so as this is happening. Washington is considering reforming the personal bankruptcy process. This year one in every every one hundred households will declare bankruptcy in other words individuals are falling deeper and deeper into debt with less and less capacity to get themselves out and she's watching this all play out and she's seeing the credit card companies and the big banks lobbying not to make it easier here for individuals to get out of debt actually make it harder. Federal Bankruptcy law is probably too liberal. It's grossly too liberal. And if you WANNA know how liberal it is compared with all the bankruptcy laws of western Europe and you'll see the ours is a kindergarten system compared to a very severe system over there air and so between her research and watching. What's happening in DC? I think it's It's too easy to go bankrupt. And it's too tempting. She decides I did not only not a personal responsibility story. It's actually something much more. Systemic it's a system that she sees as being designed designed to prey on people who rely on credit cards. It's the insurance companies that don't cover what you think they cover. It's the mortgage agreements with intentionally confusing. Fine print it's the whole system set up in a way that if you're not rich you're extremely vulnerable and on top of that. It's a system that she sees. He's as being put in place and paid for by the big banks themselves. It's so wrong and there's not a bunch of anybody out there the fight for these families. What happens to Elizabeth Warren in this moment is pretty remarkable? She changes her party affiliation from Republican to Democrat. She she changes stripes midlife and boy. That's how I got in a fight.

"My name's Jason Ross. And in the spring of two thousand nine I was a writer at the daily show with John Stewart and we had a big problem because we we had to make comedy about the financial crisis and that was hard much harder than writing jokes about something horrible like the Iraq war. Everybody understands war for nobody understood the financial crisis. It didn't help that we couldn't even trust the experts because they're the ones who got us into this in two thousand nine. Nobody had any credibility ability. The media didn't have credibility because they let it happen under their watch. Wall Street didn't have credibility they created it. Washington was creating something called a money bazooka so they didn't and have any credibility with us so we were kind of in a bind with some of these guests because we didn't trust them one hundred percent but we also didn't have the expertise to challenge them with much credibility so we had some limited options and it was always a lot of work but on April fifteenth. Two thousand nine. We had a guest coming on. Who would really give the goods? I thought what am I doing here. This is a really bad idea from the New York Times. I'm Michael Borrow. This is the daily hard three in our series on pivotal moments in the lives of the top four Democratic candidates for President Today Elizabeth Warren It's Friday December thirteenth Senator Erica we. Where do you want me right there? Yeah there's your hot water got so thank you for making time for us. I'm delighted to be here. Let's just jump in my colleague Andrew. Ross Sorkin so financial columnist at the time WHO's written a lot about your career told me about what feels like a turning point moment for you back in April of two thousand nine so that's where I want to start this conversation. Listen it's the height of the financial crisis and you get a call from the daily show with Jon Stewart. What do you remember thinking when you got that call really really I mean here I am doing this really wonky? Work as the financial markets Are In free fall. The question every day is whether the banks can survive. Millions of families are facing foreclosure. People have lost their jobs. Pension funds have gone down. And I have this little panel the Congressional Oversight Panel that what is supposed to bring some accountability to the system and I'm fighting the Treasury Department every day the Federal Reserve every day. And just try to talk about what's happening and frankly since there's no official legal power for that little oversight panel handle to try to get more people engaged so we can put some pressure on them to get some accountability in. What's going on list taxpayer? Money and with these big banks and with the bailout following the crash this seven hundred billion dollars that Congress had authorized authorized and when John Stewart called. I thought wow I could talk to a whole lot of people who otherwise otherwise might not be watching this and be able to talk about what's going on and start to put it in some context because it's not only think about where it is at that moment it's about the crash and arresting the free fall and trying to save the economy but it's also about understanding what went wrong so we do the right thing next in terms of how we changed the rules and regulations Around Wall Street and financial matters. So you see. This is a big opportunity to explain what is going on right to people. That's my first response and then and then I actually show up in New York to do the Jon Stewart Stewart. Show and I've been watching it for a long time. And frankly taken real delight in watching Jon Stewart skewer one guest after another me and all of a sudden it's like realizing Whoa I may be the Turkey at this Thanksgiving dinner. So so the closer I get to going on the more anxious like that and they put you back in this little tiny tiny hiney green were right where they have some food out and some drink salad and I sat there. It could hear through the walls. They're warming up the crowd and I thought what am I doing here. This is this is a really bad idea and go in the bathroom and threw up. Yeah and I thought I may look stupid and more importantly I make the work look stupid so once you kind of clean yourself. And that's what I had to do. I don't remember standing of its tiny little sake and washing my mouth you with my hand and putting cold water all my Chin and looking up look at myself in the mirror and thinking you think anyone can tell you just I grew up so once you get out on. How does it go? It's worse I thought I thought tonight. Eight professor of law at Harvard University. I'm standing behind this big heavy curtain and then Pune weeklies walking on the show Elizabeth Warren into them on stage and all of it is new to me. Welcome welcome to the show you are. You are the head of the Congressional Oversight Panel on this. This relief effort the money that is being funneled funneled to these companies. How much money has been sent to them? And what have these companies done with it. Well we think it's about five hundred ninety billion dollars and he just starts hampering me with questions I mean. He's a smart and thoughtful. Are you confident that the right thing to do was to hand over billions of dollars to these companies. Do you believe that this is going to work. Do you think this was the right thing to do. Are we already behind the eight ball. We started this process. When Secretary Paulson basically said here's three hundred and fifty billion dollars to the financial institutions? And he did it on. He's asking me this he's asked Nazi was the money stolen. Is that why he didn't want any of it was no nothing is feeling coherent. Some of the money is now being committed to peep it. Are you about to curse. Is that an acronym. I'm not even GONNA try right on this one what what is stand for. I don't remember it's an investment my heart rate slowed down and I thought well that's it. I'll call the leader read tomorrow. Harry Reid the head of the Senate and resign politely for having so humiliated myself and the Congressional Oversight Panel and I will resign and he can put someone in who at least can remember the names. I've watched you did you choked. Yeah I choked I checked I. I choked big time. Never it's Public Private Investment Program. I'm sorry it just took me Matt Public Private Investment Program Pip Peop-. Yeah so anyway we finish up and like I'm ready to get out of his chair and the guy comes over to hustle me off because because you remember Jon Stewart's interviews to be one segment and that was it when the commercials come show through with the the guest and he's looking at me any said so. What would you have said about this crisis? And I told him in one sentence and he said okay. Stay and you were granted a television elevation reprieve. Well a reprieve for a second firing squad. I mean who knows a little bit. So why isn't the first thing we do is to say. No one will be allowed to be too big to fail okay. So what you're asking is if we can get this bus pulled out of the ditch the economy. What does the road road look like going forward because this really is the big question I told him about? What's gone wrong in America every ten to fifteen years? There's a financial a panic in our history. You just look at it and there's a big collapse. Big trouble people lose their farms wiped out until we hit the Great Depression. We come out of the Great Depression and you say you know we can do better in this. We don't have to go back to this kind of boom and bust cycle. We come out of the Great Depression with three regulations. We go fifty years without a financial panic without a crisis. Then what happens is say regulation at. It's a pain it's expensive. We don't need it so we start pulling the threads out of the regulatory fabric. And what's the first thing we get. We got the S. and L. Crisis. And what is our repeated response. We just keep pulling the threads out of the regulatory fabric so we have two choices. We're going to make a big decision. Asian probably over the next six months and the big decision. We're going to make is it's going to go one way or the other we're gonNA decide basically. Hey we don't need regulation you know it's fine bloom and bust boom and bust boom bust and good luck with your 401k. Or alternatively we're going to say you know we're GONNA put in some smart regulation. It's going to adapt to the fact that we have new products. And what we're going to have going forward is we're going to have some stability and some real prosperity for ordinary folks and that's socialism. That is the first time in probably six months to a a year that I felt better on something. I don't know what it is that you did right there but for a second that was like financial chicken soup for me. That was thank you. Aw actually put things in perspective and I really do appreciate.

"Some jail. Time is a massive improvement over. They get rich in never face consequences and even just the conversation of like holding them. Accountable needs to yes. Yes so that's my six page essay and Elizabeth Warren. Well well done Robert. Oh Yeah we did it. We did it but not quite because now. It's cody to talk about. We're GONNA compare a little bit between her and Bernie. Is that what you're doing just a little bit. I kinda wanted to keep it loose and see what you guys thought also of Just how how this situation we're in is 'cause I know get a year like a big a big Fan of Elizabeth Warren Fan and sort of wanted to go through her Her platform in a little more detail and sort of compare and contrast the two candidates Sam who I would say the most progressive available especially nabbed. Jeff ended up down. Yeah Yeah so yes yes leftwing firebrand Kamala usually a communist. YOU WILL BE MISSED COM KAMI KAMI LA Harris. Yeah it's Kamal leg a main headline today. No it's not Kamau La Harris. Okay right there's probably more But also more we're like can't Malla Harris all right. We could also draw a comparison between her and editor Mustafa Kemal and call her Kamala Harris. There wouldn't be any logical through line there because I don't don't think they're similar in any way shape or form that's nothing it just occurred to me but yeah so I think the main difference. That is very clear with the two is that I think that they're on. They're on the same track. And I think they have similar goals. But Bernie's just a little more socialistic. Listen she's a capitalist. I mean there you go. That's I was going to get at their you know. He's not going to mince words about what he thinks about. Capitalism and a a lot of the issues that arise from that whereas Warren has said that she is a capitalist to her bones. Yeah and one of the moments I really disliked from her was during the state of the Union. I was going to bring that promised. Yeah okay okay. I'll let you know. Yeah I think the best example of this is During trump state of the Union address he talks about socialism. And how social never gonNA come to America and at this moment Everybody stands up and gives him applause except for C.. Pretty Sanders Just sitting don't face just like You don't know the deal and I think that there is a I think there's a real problem when a fascist ashes says that socialism will never happen in America and a capitalist you're bones stands up and claps because that is I enlarge what fascism is ah protecting capitalism everybody else stood up everybody else for sure. Yeah that's that's the time for a principal moral stance especially if you're single. Most host noteworthy policy is literally wealth. Redistribution which is like the core of socialist politics. Yeah at this point in time. Yeah but her whole thing is bringing socialist. These practices policies but maintaining capitalism is overhauling the system ms ex wires. They shouldn't need it. Doesn't rub me quite as raw as you guys. I mean I see it as a real reason to worry. Not that she's not going to push for a lot of the stuff that she she says she's going to push for that. This will this income redistribution Medicare for all the actual like socialist. Things things that she's she's talked about will die on the vine because she's GonNa compromise with Republicans and we'll wind up with another four years eight years of Obama. Exactly that's a real concern again especially like if fashion says we're GONNA save capitalism. I don't think you should stand up for that Yeah Yeah it's not a good look. I don't like that she did that. It's the single moment that gives me most pause about her. Yeah and I think it sort of that. General idea. can be seen in the difference between them Although she does have a wealth tax that as you mentioned Polls very well obviously his more extreme hers goes Just it's two percent or six percent depending on your wealth. Sanders starts at two percent between thirty. Two million and fifty million and hers. Doesn't have anything in that category interesting. Also if you if you see like some celebrities it'd be like I actually. I think they're both great. But I like Warren Five. Because they don't follow him right. Sometimes you look like oh you. When you've you're worth is like forty million or something like that So his more progressive there but she has it and that's something so I think that there is a there's a progressive path. A half. Yes she's on. It's it's beyond arguing that based on assuming. She actually goes for the things on her platform. If she were elected she would be the most progressive passive candidate elected during our lifetime. There's reason to worry that she wouldn't go through with it but yeah right and so that's sort of we're getting there. There are other similarities like they. They WANNA get rid of the Electoral College they want to restructure ice. Both of them. I think his language is a little stronger but neither of them have said like. I want to abolish ice. Yeah I don't like that either. Don't like that either. That's yeah we talked about in that in the Bernie episode. They're both believers in borders. They're both fundamentally you know they want to be president of the United States. And there's only Bernie is about the most progressive you can be and want to be the president of the United States right right both. I think there should be president. Still Yeah Yeah. They both do. Fundamentally support aspects of ice does right and I think that also like even when when she he's talking about her meal planning for the military She her vision is a green military and the way she talks about it. I think is a little disconcerting because winching on her website like literally if you look at her foreign policy and military page the the first sentence is from endless wars strain military families to and then she goes on and if you're framing it like the endless wars are bad because of the strain on military families than that sort of indicates case that maybe he doesn't really he's not getting you're missing the point right and it's sort of like presenting this seemingly progressive idea but framed Republican language and. Yeah maintaining this idea and like her military plan also talks about getting them to green energy and Making make all the military bases safe from climate disasters and stuff without pointing out by the way we have way too many military bases around the world. It's all about protecting that institution institution as opposed to pointing out the flaws and the institution and also like pandering to certain sites protecting. Yes exactly like tapping into something that you know the Liberals would would respond to it in. This is one of those things where like so when I talked about like my issues with Warren. There's the stuff that like makes me question whether or not voting for her would actually help anything if she were to get elected which which is like the whole being like standing during that point in the state of the end right right but and then there's the things where I think her beliefs like the beliefs that are leading her to this are like wrong fucked up and she's not going to deal with big aspects of the problem but if she actually does that thing it would be huge and that the US military thing like it's it's one of those things you can hit on her because like okay so you're fine with us being imperialists and like bombing as long as we're green about it and yeah that's fucked up but also the US military? Harry is the single largest emitter of greenhouse gases on the Planet Ryan. There are aspects of that and you if you if you focus on reducing their footprint print and developing green technology for them. Yeah that'll trickle down to. You know people who really need install on one. It's also just like if we're talking about single actions that could be taken in order to stop. Climate change quickly. One of the things that has to happen very quickly is the. US military has to stop emitting greenhouse gases. Right So yeah I think there's a lot of that where I think that she Some of the things she wants to do our good and but like framed in a way and You just wish that it was a little more pointed in the criticism and really like leading the conversation about it. Let's let's talk about Medicare for all her. Yeah I I yeah let's get to that Because there are a lot of details about differences in their plans. And I think that that's the general idea is that Her our plan sort of our couched in this. Let's preserve what's going on despite framing it like a big structural change like she's very much like this is a grassroots movement of big structural change but actually she just wants to regulate capitalism while so they on the car right over. Here you were talking about boils down to Bernie being like yes medicare for all and her at this point point proposing it be a two step process so she is slowly without listening to two years so like get certain things started and then after two years push for the Medicare for all her plan and is is slow process. I think this is indicative. We're talking about where she is. Slowly got on board with Medicare for all. It wasn't like a big part of her platform when she's running for senator or anything but She has gotten on board with a single payer and sort of avoided talking about how she's GonNa pay for it and not just sort of full-throatedly being like this is the right thing to do. We're going to do it but she does say this is the right thing to do. We're going to do it. Make It. So this is a different development development. If a couple of months ago she wasn't saying it in two steps she was talking about it. We're GONNA do it. We're going to pay and not. I do understand being a little bit of a cause for alarm but I I pushed for you to bring this now because I just think it's interesting conversation that we should be having. I know that you're very much in the camp of yes and I am too I. Yeah I think pushing for Medicare for all is how you get Medicare for all Yeah I do understand I I I know that it is scary to a lot of people even if they do want it. They're not sure how. Oh it will work out and I'm wondering how off pudding is this idea of two years starting in the after two years pushing for going away and also how how long it would take anyways. Like how long would it take to get around to get asked Medicare for all maybe maybe it would be even harder to obtain. But I think it's the kind of thing though Katie when you're when you're haggling with somebody at like a bizarre whatever one of the parts of the world where that's the way buying is done you don't start with the highest you're willing to pay. Hey you start like you know you you start with as good as the best thing you can matt price you can imagine getting and you push for that so that you know when you you you're going to have to it gives you push for. We're going to start making these changes immediately. And obviously there's no public option and obamacare. Now I get that and I do agree with it. I think there's also so there's this article in the Washington Post a couple of days ago about the behind the scenes story of her struggle with like presenting the plan plan and and trying to sort of toe the line in a way where She wants to be this hyper progressive on medicare for all but also a lot of people in the party. They are pressuring her behind the scenes. Like this is a bad idea. You shouldn't do this And finally the end result is we're going to lower the age for Medicare to fifty and then eighteen below. You get it also and we're GONNA vote. We're going to do that and then in three years we're going to vote again and we're going to give it to everybody because by then it'll people will be like oh it's actually good Yeah but I mean there are several problems with that. I think Like you were pointing out Robert like you go with what you want to do and say here's what we want and what we're going to do and then you're probably going to have to back up a little bit. Because that's how the government works as he said like. Yeah one bill in Earl time so but also If you're waiting until your third year to push for it that means you need to maintain the congress controlled Congress in in in the midterms and that's hard for a person who was just elected real. Quick I just want to interject and say this because we don't talk about enough on the show but I hope we do in the new year that just as important if not more important than the presidential election. Well that's incredibly important Senate and I think that we should talk about that a lot..

WHO's actually One of BRAC Obama's very first out of state fundraisers for his Senate Campaign The fundraiser have been put together by professor. David that Wilkins and he recalls quote one of the people who came was Elizabeth. Warren and I had told Barack that she was coming and he was very excited because he'd been working on predatory lending in the Illinois the state Senate and so when Elizabeth came took her over to meet Barack. And here's how Warren recalled meeting going In Two thousand eleven quote he holds his hand out. That's just like this is just like in the movies. And I as I hold my hand out and as our fingers touch she says to me predatory lending and then he just goes and I never get a word in. I never get a word in. And I'm just standing there.

You have to consciously consciously opt in to this program to have your audio clips reviewed by humans for quality purposes. That's why they say they're doing it.

"This online platform really creates an opportunity that amazon has taken advantage of and it's hurt a lot of little tiny businesses and start up businesses and small businesses and medium medium sized businesses that can't compete with giant like amazon that is sucking information out of every transaction information is today's comparative comparative advantage and amazon shouldn't be able to suck it all up and then dominate a free single market place in america. Did you think about be more specific in going after them today here in their backyard not particularly i mean i was here to talk about why i'm running for president in an you bet at least had the passing reference to the fact that we gotta break up the the big companies. We've got to enforce our antitrust laws but a lot of stuff we gotta do god you are indignant. <hes> are you serious. No man i would've loved to have had that dialogue in her actual speech and i get what you're going for their. It's like go ahead. Say it. You're right here. Call them out username us his use bezos his name and i wonder what that would done to the applause factor and and it would have been interesting to hear that i if for nothing more than the reaction and that was the thing a lot of what she said was reiterating things she said elsewhere but i think setting and context are extremely extremely important. Especially in today's political climate people are listening for signals and i think the signal back from the crowd would have been fascinating. I don't no it would have been booze or cheers but the sheer number of tech workers that were in the crowd amazon employees in the crowd it was i think a little bit of a missed opportunity <unk> -tunities now let me say i was extremely grateful to them for giving me a few minutes with her to ask those questions and also extremely impressed what candidate would stand there for four hours more than four hours taking selfies with everybody in the crowd who wanted one and frankly not only was it impressive but it was a brilliant social media strategy because every one of those thousands of people and by the way she took her fifty thousandth selfie of the campaign during that seattle title stint so yeah lots of impressive stuff there and i'm glad i got a chance to ask questions you know. Maybe the fact that she didn't get into this big tech. Thing is maybe because voters. I don't really care about it. As much as we do as tech industry insiders. Do people even care you know. I think it's a good point. You could take this as a litmus test for for her recognition of the voters appetite for this issue in general and the fact that she only makes a passing reference to it in her standard stump speech speech. I think is telling and perhaps after floating this whole proposal. They realized based on the reaction that it wasn't the kind of thing that really fired up any crowd. Yeah wonder how many he's selfie. Takers stood there and said hey <hes> you've got my vote but don't mess with my one day shipping <hes> yeah all right so that was my weekend adventure insure. Fortunately my family is back in town. So you get a selfie. I thought about that. I did not get a selfie been the fifty thousand self that she's he's taking our campaign did talk about controlling big data break up the elizabeth warren selfie machine. That's a good point <hes> no it was a lot of fun but i truly did regret it as i walked away because that would have been the perfect ending to the entire anecdote of i got my own self with her by the way i gotta say. This is a small knit but they aren't really selfies. Somebody hands their phone to you. Were staffer. A staffer takes the picture. It's much more efficient that way but to call themselves as as a bit of a stretch sounds like you need to submit a argument to the dictionary mary you know i think it's probably got an addiction years ago. So maybe you need to tweak the definition of what actually is associate or maybe elizabeth warren just need to say i'll take a photo with you coming up on geekwire.

"We're back and we were just talking about. Perhaps some of the ways in which was with warren could pick up ground with other are parts of the electorate and maybe it's a quench fashion win the nomination by convincing people that she is in fact electable. I wanna read a quote actually from in calmest henry olsen in the washington post and see what you if you think this is right and we'll go to you perry he wrote warren's tactic so far have more in common with those of evangelical religious just right republican candidates than with eventual nominees those men mike huckabee rick santorum and ted cruz used strong support from a large party faction to an early knockouts of other candidates that's with broader-based support but they each lost when the race winnow down to the final stage because the factors that earn them support from the religious right alienated them from the party's silent majority majority perry to you does that sound like warren and perhaps an argument for why she wouldn't go on to win the nomination not quite that idea i i guess here's a college educated voters in the democratic party or like evangelical party i don't i don't totally see it that way but i guess what i would say is kind of being the candidate of white people with college. Degrees is limiting about a third of the democratic voters hillary. I do think one natural place for warranty. Go is to go to there are college educated people who are not white so that's a part of democratic party that we don't talk about a lot but this one place where would be logical. You can imagine stacey abrams style person that came down to biden. Versus is <hes> warren one. I think would endorse warren overby over biden and i. I wonder if you get some more black elected. Officials hispanic elected did officials people who are prominent endorse warren down the line that she wanted to sleep in the black vote narrow the keeping. She can't have a gap that the sanders clinton gap was so big. It can't make up for that war and have a more narrow gap. That's the key is not. She can't be so henry's right this. You can't be so factual that you can't win. I i think the other th i mean talking about getting prominent politicians and surrogate of color in certain states would be powerful her for her people have made a lot sort of like back in the inside baseball baseball stuff about oh. Would she choose castro as a running mate. They seem kind of chummy. They seem kind of like they've complimented each other publicly so the hi dear that someone like dropping out and endorsing her you know that if you're playing that kind of game or getting certain prominent mayors like like andrew gillum alarmed that endorsement will will matter i think when it comes when it when it happens like there are people like that around the country who could basically like lent her credibility sort of like to be a little bit frank about it kind of do what obama does for biden which is sort of lend elizabeth warren like more reach in minority communities unity's and more credibility yeah i agree with that and i should also say in this to slightly correct what i said earlier in that pupil <hes> and i think this goes to the castro point warren did best among white voters like i said she got twenty percent of first choice support but she actually didn't do that much worse among hispanic onyx owners. She got fourteen percent of the first first choice support. She got four percent among black voters. So maybe maybe that suggests that hispanic voters are logical article next step for her which overlapped with what perry said about college educated non white voters the other thing though and i think just gets at clarice point and it's it's a key advantage warren has over bernie. Even though we're talking about in some ways they have the the same problem terms of how they build out their coalition. I do think it's more likely as claire said that warring can get elite endorsements then sanders has been able able to or will be able to for whatever reason she's just i mean there are a lot of reasons but she's just more part of the establishment and then the last thing i'll say to that point about is the kind of very liberal college educated white section of the democratic party akin to the evangelical section of the republican party and therefore is warren orna factional candidate in the way that ten dorm was. I think this gets out the conversation. We're having on the podcast last week about iwa right iwa in both parties he's defined by those factions right for republicans evangelicals for <hes> democrats very liberal white voters and yet i was been predictive in the democratic party but not predictive in the republican party and i think that's why is a complicated question book for whatever the reason it does suggest that the relationship between those factions and the larger party is different between the two parties perry as has elizabeth warren has gained steadily in the polls. Does it seem like concerns about her quote. Unquote electability have subsided at all. I mean <unk>. I read these polls to say more people think she's electable than they did six months ago i i read them but i don't dubious about them. I know we're data vocalist website but if you ask regular people and you just go to south carolina tomorrow ask people what are can warn a harris win. They'll say are you are. Are you insane. We just watched hillary lose. The women can't win as a really deep feeling among democrats and i think that's our biggest barrier. Is it more about her ideology or hurt gender at this point. Does it seem those questions. I think as people say it's got her ideology because that's safe to say in columns in on t._v. The actual voters talk about gender lock. They don't know much about ideology. I think we underestimate the truly elite pessimistic streak running through the democratic primary electorate in general just the idea of people not voting tilly for what they want in their hearts but what their brain tells them they should do because they're sort of trying to seek out other people want and yes i mean i think there's there's just just a lot of pessimism about who can win and where america is right now after hillary clinton and after obama's presidency i was interviewed by a <hes> vogue reporter declares point the the the sheet mica telling claire last week that i appeared in vogue doug with <hes> taylor swift wasn't yeah mica and taylor swift same and hit him hit the same day. I don't know if my quotas cover stories yeah one of us one of us <hes> but the the conceit of the article was about democrats who are resigned signed trump winning reelection which i think there is this streak in the in the democratic party of deep pessimism about what voters are ready for and i actually thought that the premise of the article is interesting because i mean it's not crazy bias to have the trump might well win the election. I mean he is the sitting the president know if he has a very good shot of winning. That's not crazy to think. It's like preordained. This is not supported. What at at this point can we do. The numbers tell us about how people view warren's electability. They view her as as not as electable as as people like biden right in our even or even like bernie i think bernie's viewed as more electable than warn is yeah and i think i mean we actually haven't talked his. I think in part because there's there's been a lot of talk about race right and joe biden and harrison booker in how they're going after joe biden's <hes> supporting the black community and we think we've he's like we haven't talked about sexism for awhile but to go back to the idea of electability yeah like member twenty sixteen like a lot of people there was there was was a lot of sexism and like odd nauseam from all the dudes who follow us on twitter. I got like well. Where's the numbers on that and it's like well you can't you can't apply apply numbers to sexism everywhere some of just like lies deep in your hearts but also like but there is but this is not a crazy thing to think that some of the electability notions surrounding elizabeth warren has to do with like she talks she talks kind of annoying and she reminds me of my teacher like people do like people people listening to this podcast might be like that sounds crazy but people say that stuff and people feel that stuff so yeah i just think if you went to the republican convention it in two thousand sixteen and sell the number number of signs that called hillary clinton a bitch you probably wouldn't question the exult to and worse and worse yeah section with him but just to put some numbers to what gail in a yougov survey asked people to select each candidate they felt could beat trump and warren was ranked second behind biden far behind biden sixty sixty. One percent of people picked biden forty six percent picked warren. Thank him harrison sanders at forty three percent and it was a survey in which you could just mark whoever you thought you can pick as many as you want and then a <hes> a monmouth poll from june asked people to assign a number value from zero to ten each candidate's electability and worn place third at six point four behind biden at seven point one and sanders at six point point five now. I think a lot of that perry's point is just like as her support has grown in the polls for choice support. There's more people i think are inclined signed to answer positively on warren's behalf in other poll questions such as these but look like. I don't know this is such a tricky conversation but like we know that all else being equal on average candidates further from the ideological center do have more trouble in general general elections. That's just true you know. Will it apply to warren if she's the nominee in twenty twenty. I don't know we also know that as claire said ed. There's a deep sexism within this country that manifest itself in a lotta ways now study showed that when women run they win win at at a rate equal with men right in similar conditions but all those studies are of councils house races and senate races and gubernatorial toya races and i think there are reasons to suspect that running for president is different but it's very hard to predict how how that will play out in in fact. It's hard enough to predict how that will play out that like i don't you know the probably safest best not to make a bunch of assumptions about who is electable in and who isn't. I don't think we know oh you make an asset of you and me exactly right also because at least at a you when you look at two thousand sixteen of course hillary clinton won that nomination relatively easily and came very very very close to winning the presidency and so to take that information and then say there's no way a woman could win feels like over emphasizing one part of the data and not allowing other parts of the data to speak as well no absolutely but i think this is sort of tied into other issues which is that there is a divide in the democratic party between it's it's sort of left left in its left center and audible. Don't warns big problem also is that i think he's gonna have a real problem. She wins iowa new hampshire. Also that the the a certain part of the party endorsed anybody else who's standing there to make sure she doesn't win the same way. Sanders had a big problem six different than warren but he had a big province sixteen the every black person in america who's looking at bishop basil's endorse hillary clinton today stands new hampshire and because the party does not like the party with the party elites would refer harris or biden to warren sanders. Yes they just. I think that's a really good point and i would..

"Somebody else like that but i think if you win those first two primaries that gives you the momentum and help sur sort of grow her basement me. She gets them endorsements after that yeah. I think the question is how does she grow her forbe's outside of what you described the some early wins probably help with that yeah like i could potentially see warren doing kind of well in nevada likes likes getting maybe a big big union endorsement because she speaks the language of unions her having an organized team on the ground turning people out to those caucuses that could would be good and then you could get momentum. I agree with like there's a lot of votes in the south and she probably are isn't going to get those but she could win. A few super twos one of the two super tuesday's used as you know. She could get some of those midwestern states. I could see her winning michigan. I mean sanders one michigan in two thousand sixteen. Who's not to say that she. She couldn't win a thing like that so you could see her making her way through oklahoma. Let's just states aware where we don't think about their votes hiding and i actually think to her credit actually to a lot of candidates credits that you are seeing them say i'm campaigning here in mississippi or alabama and i'm gonna comeback comeback right like the idea that they are warren as a as the kangra as a white candidate and the current candid of like white college educated people is cognizant the fact that she it would be embarrassing if she had no black support or outreach like that is an important part of the democrat coalition roy not just embarrassing but also perhaps not viable her candidacy to win the nomination so we've talked about. Maybe a strategy in terms of just the secrets of primaries but where does she actually have upside in terms of voters like which other candidates could she gain support from they altered. You know 'cause even where she is now. She still wouldn't win candidate caucus who's who gets there. Who's cards. Does she get when they fold okay so one. There's a share of biden supporters who are mostly with biden now just because they think he's the most electable so if warren wins iowa new oh hampshire you would imagine all of a sudden. She seems a lot more electable because he's winning elections. You know she picks up. Let's say a handful of percentage points from <hes> from biden. Sanders has been sort of like hovering at around. I don't know what you've been at like. Thirteen fourteen fifteen percent <hes> <hes> in national polls you know if he is stuck there all the way up until iowa. What what does he do. I think that's a really interesting question. I mean do you think there's any circumstance in which elizabeth warren could make the argument to sanders if you don't drop out by windsor if you believe in your cause yeah and would that be would that be convincing to bernie sanders bernie. I don't totally possible bernie sanders endorse warren if she he definitely does not get endorsed by them so i think there's not until the salon until the spring billy but i don't think it happens until like after dr march that and that's more reading into like the psychology of bernie sanders as a true believer in his <music> singular bernie yeah and i don't i mean they're all listen. This is not to like extra all believers in themselves. It's crazy but like we also have the template of two thousand sixteen as some sort of indication of how bernie might make a good decision which is to say like he was a little like play to the whistle kind of guy so i don't know. I don't know what he's gonna do this time around. Here's another way to think about it is what demographic perfect characteristics does warren over index with right now and could she improve her support among the opposite of that in other words right now warren does disproportionately well with very liberal voters and when you go to somewhat liberal she does worse and when you go to moderate conservative she does way worse. Could you see her doing a little bit better with somewhat liberal voters. Maybe but she's really liberal you know so so i think that'll be tough. Look at race right. She does really well. She does disproportionate well with white voters worse with black voters worst with hispanic voters. How could you reverse that. That's a little hard to see to honestly. It's the same problem. Bernie had the one area where i where i can imagine the happening more and remember that these demographic groups all overlap right so this actually isn't a perfect way to think about it but she over indexes right now with with very well educated voters but you could imagine if she does it right her kind of populist structural change message edge resonating with voters without a college education voters who just have a high school degree in the same way trump's right populace message did still it is a little bit of the of the bernie problem. The only other thing i'd say is if you look at like how it this this resolve from a a really interesting pew report that came out but right now the support by candidate isn't super differentiated by gender. There's not a candidate. That's doing really well among women or men relative to one another <hes> and i'm curious to see if that stays the same or or or changes inches depending on how the field windows i think the i think the point about warren i don't frankly ever see her. Excelling or competing with biden her harris like like perry sort of predicted with black voters in the south but i do think she has an opportunity to win over moderate white voters and end to make an argument that in the general election she could do something to appeal to more moderate people and what i think is interesting that her campaign hasn't hasn't done more of is is play up the fact that she used to be a republican play up the fact that she took a little bit of a winding road to get to her liberal positions she in fact almost like a full lifetime to get to those positions and i think that that's actually it's less of a neat narrative then single working mother which she is which is currently sort of the the threat of her stump speech grew up in a you know household teetering on the edge of the middle class in poverty but i think that idea that she was republican looking for much of her adult life is very compelling. If you wanna win over those more moderate voters and i think this is where some of the like the weird how women and men are perceived when they when they try to do populism is really interesting because while warren grew up super middle class and spent most of for life as a as a republican she sort of reads as woman harvard professor whereas joe biden who has been a senator since he was thirty. You know it's been in the national spotlight for a long time is still scranton joe in a lot of people's eyes middle-class joe and so it is just a little bit of a different valence on those two things all right..

"Com, again as recon show at vox dot com, but here is Senator Elizabeth Warren, how are you? I'm doing great. How's it trail? You know I love it. It's, it's fun. Because you get out and do two things. One is your to tell people about ideas, a Ah-ha that matter to them, and you watch people's eyes as they try it on or known work through it, and the other is you feedback. And, and sometimes it comes in the most intimate ways, but it's a piece of saying, yeah, I get this to give you an example of that. Or is it a town hall on Sunday, ill, lots of people coming through the line afterwards tuna bay self Yuan? Huge self dilemma, bathe vigorous townhall, I talked about mental health in the town hall, and in the selfie line. A woman said, I'm so glad you talked about mental health issues of plus buff, my children, because they've had serious mental health problems. And she said my son killed himself, two months ago just awful. And she says. Said there was no place for him to go. She says going to question she said, we have actually we have good insurance, but there's no place to go there. No beds, there snow help, and he ended up killing himself, and we hugged, we talked a little, she went on and about eight more people d- Marin line. Begun shook my hand he said, I'm really glad you talked about mental health. And I said, why? And he said, always said, I work as a corrections officer. He said, but that's not what I really wanted to. He said, always a mental health worker, and he said, and then lack of funding the closed us up and laid off two hundred people, and that he looked at me and said, the same thing he said, a now there's no place for people with problems to go, and you just watch this pieces come together in close and intimate ways. We talk about funding in Washington in the numbers are in the billions that tens of billions of dollars. But bind every one of us is a mother who Austa son a guy who lost a job and a good person has now gone. You know, something that has always struck me about politicians. I've covered is there is a huge difference between the ones who see campaigning, as a one way project, and those who see it as a to a project is a real big difference between campaigning, just a broadcast, and then using campaigns as way of getting information and getting a sense of what do people need you to do, and it's not something I think we cover well and terms of candidates like, are they actually hearing anything, but it does seem it does seem important to me? He not just a funny part in that, and that is for me why it's important, the rooms, be lit. So I don't I there's a big difference, sometimes of answer set up in fear. Spaces for hep chairs are not the not minute stage and then a big audience. And the question is, whether the audience is in the dark as it would be if you were watching performance, or did keep the house lights up, and I insist every time, keep the house lights up, I need to see faces because that's another part of the interaction. It's, it's more than just words. It's everybody who gives in the middle of when you're talking about something about the dress or minimum wage, mental health the small nods that say, yeah. I'm I'm with you on that. And that I learned as I give talk how it migrates over time to where where the people are. And if I'm not getting a response. I know I'm not explaining it well, or not a point that resonates with people. So. It's a there's a lot of is, it's actually a very close intimate interaction, even with a thousand people at a time or couple of thousand it's the Idaho by face to face. It's the nod. I know the story it's the confirmation. Yeah. I, I get this and yeah I'm ready to get in this fight. So I'm gonna jump as PASOK survey, it is day. One of the Elizabeth Warren administration. You've got a lot of plants, what comes first. So I've already promised. I'll do the things that I can do as president on my own so day, one, I will sign a moratorium. No more drilling. No more mining on federal, lands, our national parks. No offshore drilling. Oh, and secretary of education who's been a public schoolteacher, somebody who believes in public education. Oh, and head of the EPA, who while is not a coal lobbyist. You know, it's this is how I think it is look at the tools in the toolbox, right? What are all the tools, what are the ones that a president can do? I love this word by herself. And what are the ones you gotta get congress? And then what's the plan to get congress onboard finance, you know, part of what I do right now and all of the town halls. I'm not just in the early states. This is not only about winning the primary, although it certainly that it's not only about winning in November of twenty twenty it's about building the national momentum the energy, the demand side to start making real change in January twenty twenty one, so I wanna I wanna put the toolbox because I wanna come back because I do want to talk about executive authority, but you've a bunch of big legislative projects, one of them will have to come. You'll have to put your political capital into something I got of them, what comes first. The best place to start is with the corruption baggage. And the reason for that is. That the rich and the powerful been calling the shots in Washington for ever and ever and ever it feels like I mean many, many decades and they're not gonna turn loose easy. They're gonna just say, oh, well, okay. Now, you need a wealth tax. Now, you want to make these other investments. So part of it is to disrupt the influence of money in Washington. It's to push back against the lobbying industry. It's to say to all those congress people and their chiefs of staff. Hey, this is your job and you're not gonna have an opportunity to lobby afterwards. So don't be looking over the horizon at your next job, and adjusting your behavior accordingly right now. I want everybody in the game right now for the people, not for the folks with money, not for the billionaires, not for the giant corporations, and I. Think going straight up the middle on the corruption plans, the first one knock them back and while they're all scrambling then start passing the rest of it. Do you need to start with the filibuster before he can do any of those plans depends? That's that depends on whether or not we have a maturity on our side in the Senate. And it depends on what Mitch McConnell does. But, you know, Mitch McConnell will do. Yeah. Okay. But I always want to say he's he, he is the one who will determine now but I'll say this for sure. And that is this business that Democrats play by one set of rules and Republicans play by a different set of rules, the stays Rover when I'm president, we're not. We're not doing that anymore. So I walked into difference in the rules with he says, oh, come on. I watched Mitch McConnell, when the Republicans were in the minority in the Senate, and President Obama was in the White House. And the Democrats obviously were in the majority in the Senate. He used every rule every trip. Every blue slip every right to delay to hold back to keep anything from passing and Democrats, largely respect. That's well, those are the rules, then when it flips, and the Republicans are in majority, it all starts to look different. And then when the Republicans are in the majority now they steal seat. Ready still supreme Coursey when the Republicans were in the majority and Barack Obama is still president of the United States. Now, the Republicans have Donald Trump is president, and they're in the majority and the in the Senate, and the rules are entirely different from where they were before, so watch. What's happening, not just with the supreme court with judges up and down the line. So Mitch McConnell has made clear that there is no point of principle for him. It is all about power. So here's my push back against that. When I get elected, it's not to go to wash. To talk about change. It's to go to Washington to make change that, that is what the electoral process is all about. And I think that's going to be the demand side. What millions of people across this country are going to say, okay, now let's get this done. So I think the role of the president in that case is going to be for me to say, here's our agenda. Here's what we go after we start with the corruption, we go to the two cent wealth tax universal preschool, universal healthcare. A universal child care. We go to these big pieces, and we have enough demand side enough people around the country who are still engaged who don't just say, well, November twenty twenty got rid of Trump, let's quit now but who say I'm still in his fi-. So if you are looking of majority, it'll be fifty one, fifty two Amine outside fifty three in the Senator. So. Then you get into the filibuster, you were the first Senator to call for its abolition this time your colleagues are not there. What, what argument would you make to them to say get rid of it, 'cause you're not going to get that Krupp Shen package passed the filibuster in place? Like, I think this is one of the reasons to run on plans because if you get elected on those plans, it gives me the capacity to turn around and say to my colleagues. Hey, that's what I ran on. That's what the majority of the American people voted for. That's what they got out and fought for. So as a Democratic Party. That's what we got to. There's an argument that you hear a lot lately that before anything else happens in ex president needs to focus on climate change. Because climate change has a ticking clock attached to it. What do you think of that? So I think there's a lot of truth in it. That's why I've said on the first day that I am sworn in a put a moratorium in. In place. So they'll be no new drilling. No new mining on federal lands. No offshore drilling that something within the capacity of the president of the United States. It's a difference to make from day one. And remember that's pretty significant putting all our federal lands. Nearly a quarter of our land mass on the side of helping the climate instead of being a source of more carbon in the air. I also think that it's not just a point of I and I day it's having a big enough vision of what we need to do and how we're gonna get it on. And that's, that's a big part of what I'm working on tell me about your, your theory of how the power sequences because there has been for a long time. I think of you that presidents have up to one hundred days they have maybe they don't even have that anymore, but, but in theory, you know, you have this hundred as you can do a lot, then but every single day or their power drains out of the office controversy builds people get tired, get nearer to the next election. Give it different theory. That do you think that there's a way to sequence your agenda, such at your building momentum as opposed to losing it, or d really have to say, you know, it's going to be these one or two or three legislative fights, and that's all the system can handle in a big way. And I term. No. So here's my theory of. It starts now. That's what true grassroots building is about right now. When more and more people get engaged in specific issues green new deal. More and more people were right in that fight and say that matters to me Medicare for all in that fight that matters to me student loan debt cancellation forty three million Americans who would be affected by my proposal there. That matters to me, twelve million kids who could be affected by childcare and universal pre-k for all our three year olds and four year olds that matters to me as those issues over the next year and a quarter, get clear sharper, their issues worth fighting for and issues where we truly have leadership on it have people out there knocking doors over. That's where the legislative agenda starts searching year and a half before the election. Then the idea is to take that energy from the election and take it straight into congress and let me just do one more about the laying the foundation were a big part of that right now. I am. So, for example, I have got a plan to just attack this opioid crisis head on for far too long, we've been nibbling around the edges at every year, you watch the number of Opio a deaths, boomer dictated, keep going up every year government spends a little more money, but the government's always behind the curve, and today in America. What is it an estimated hundred in ninety three people or so will die from an overdose like plane crash happened again tomorrow in the next day and the next day? And yet if a beloved friend of yours, your sister, your brother came to you. And said okay, now I've got a problem, they have a less than one in six chance getting the medical treatment. They need not because we don't know what to do. But because right now it's just not there. The facilities aren't there. The help is not there with built the help that people need so that we can break the back of this crisis and deal with it in a truly effective manner..
"elizabeth warren" Discussed on Serious Inquiries Only
"But as always after the primary, I will vote for whoever it is even if it's Joe fricken Biden, I am not. I am really hoping it's not going to be him. Absolutely. Am not supporting him in the in the primary, but whoever whatever democrat, I don't. It might be a socialist. That's again, I all I care about is the country being better. I don't care about like, oh, you didn't choose my candidate of Elizabeth warrants. I'm not gonna vote. I'm gonna. Let Trump president ruin lives, ruined millions. People's lives because I'm mad that my favorite can't. It wasn't chosen. No, I don't care if it's an outright socialists or something that I mean again, I kinda liked that, but whoever I'm trying to think of the example, whatever, whatever liberal it is and Biden would be one of them. I'm not rooting for Biden in any way, shape or form. But if he's the, he's the guy, then I will be voting for him in the general. So. All right. Let me know. I feel about this again. I absolutely mean no disrespect to any native American tribes. I fully think what Elizabeth Warren said is is valid that they determine their citizenship. I don't think anyone should be taking a test and utilizing some minor DNA result to say that your native American you shouldn't be doing that. Don't do that. I wouldn't do that, but I just think we're being all too fair to deal with more did. So that's my view. Oh, and then Finally, I wanted to bring up Aaron rabbi, of course, the philosophies in space said it really great. I. Think and this is just in in regard to the like, oh, you played into Trump's hand thing. That's, that's another thing people you. He played right into it and said, can everyone please clarify for me what the correct game is to play against the pigeon shitting on the board while thirty percent of the country laughs and calls that winning is that the Rousseau gambit. I really want to understand the move that all her detractors are sure would have worked better against the people who are lighting, the whole game store and fires we speak as I don't. It's so funny how man I, I really gotta get out here, but because it's been such a long episode, but it's people think that unless so in a battle with Trump's of, let's say there's one of these altercations which they're like with stormy Daniels, like with Elizabeth Warren. In this instance, it's almost as though people think if Trump doesn't immediately catch on fire or somehow quit the presidency that he that just means he want like whatever it is he want Elizabeth Warren see at backfired. Did it? What decides that? What? What determines that? The fact that he's still president? Yeah, we'll, he will still be present no matter what he's proven. He can say any number of stupid, factually inaccurate things. And then you can take the fact that he's still president and used that to say while I guess he was right about that. He knows. As planning a hell of a game? No, he's president because people keep him in office because he has Republicans protecting its, there's no game you can play as as Aaron. His capturing that really funny comment. There's nothing you can do that's going to ever heal trouble just stop. Oh, you're right. You got me. I apologize. No, he will never do that. There's nothing sh she didn't play into his hand or out of his hand or any combination of that. She, I think did something that I don't blame her for doing. Maybe you could argue strategically she should have done something else. I'm open to that argument, but I think that this will be a strong way to have the media not do a bunch of fifty fifty articles about her for two more years articles like, well, Trump claims that she's made it all up about our ancestry and she claims that she hasn't..
