The senator tweeted a thread explaining his proposal saying while over thirty million. Americans. Have seen their six hundred dollars a week and unemployment benefits. Expire emergency actions taken by the Federal Reserve to prop up the stock market have meant that four hundred, sixty, seven billionaires saw their wealth go up by over seven hundred and thirty billion dollars since the pandemic began while Amazon is denying paid sick leave hazard pay personal protective equipment to four, hundred, fifty, thousand of its Workers Jeff Bezos has increased his wealth by over seventy billion dollars.

Pete Buttigieg and Joe Bidens's Economic Policy

"Presumptive, Democratic presidential nominee Joe. Biden rolling out his economic policy today. He's going to travel the Pennsylvania near his hometown. Scranton the agenda slogan is build back better. His campaign team says that Biden will prioritize small business workers and plans to focus on inequalities that prevent minorities from reaching a fair economic plainfield. We're going to hear a lot more about the plan from Biden campaign surrogate. Buddha judge is going to the squad team and just. To remember that the broadcast news. What is it? Bring back better, a lot of alliteration for remember that quote from broadcast I can't remember what it was, but Yeah, BRING BACK! A lot of bs there. Build back better is the name of the former vice president's economic recovery plan. That is the work of task force between Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders the key idea. Bring critical manufacturing back to the United States with incentives for companies and seven hundred billion dollars in earmarked funding for government contracts for American firms and Research and development. The campaign says this will create eight million new jobs if that sounds similar to president trump's platform, it is. Thank you very much. Thank you all for being here. A. Last year trump signed an executive order that would prioritize American manufacturers. In certain federal contracts, the Biden campaign says trump's efforts are working and contracts to foreign companies are up thirty percent. Vice President Biden has said he'd raised three point eight trillion dollars by increasing taxes on individuals, making more than four hundred thousand dollars a year and reverse in corporate tax cuts. Now this roll today will include a speech outside Biden's hometown Scranton Pennsylvania and. And his one time rivals from the Democratic primary race remember that it was just a few months ago are out in force today to support the former vice president and his plan one of them join us on Squawk box, Mayor Pete, the former mayor of South Bend Indiana Peop- Buddha Jr here's Joe I'm just going to call you. Mayor Pete I guess we all just feel comfortable feel comfortable. Everybody does around here countering next radio. I'm going to so we understand the primary process, and you understand it as well as anyone and we've seen it on both sides. Sometimes, there is a tendency to move towards the. Basis with some of the programs, and then when when it comes to governing, maybe you become more centrist and I'm just gonNa tell you. Here's the headline for this mirror. A Biden to map and economic path delaying progressives, biggest plans and I think Kayla alluded to it that he's going to call for a moderate approach towards reviving the US economy. Is that how you see it? And is that the right prescription to win, but I think there's a lot of boldness and the level vice president. Biden wants to invest in America I. think that's not only progressive already, but it's something that people across the out. We're going to I. Think it's in keeping with Joe Biden's instance to bring people together, but I think it's also in practical terms. What makes sense early on? We need to invest in our own competitiveness. In order to grow your own, and in order to compete with increasingly powerful economic competitors like China, we need to make less dependence on Safai chains for critical goods and infrastructure light. We're seeing right now with armed soon which she's on countries like truck and we need to make sure that American workers come I to me that nets bedrock through what democratic are spout, but I do agree with you that you don't have to Iraq Democrats to see why this is a good at. was so in the plans were pretty expensive as you know. And it was pre pandemic, and it was pre-, twenty, five trillion wherever we are right now, so this is cost a lot and inflicted a lot of economic damage and. Hopefully we're GONNA. Come out of this, but it might take years so. I mean. Is there something to that that it's not the we're not in the same position to be able to maybe be as as as free-spending with some of the democratic programs. Do you think do you agree with that and? We're GONNA need to to try to pay down some of this that with our taxes. No Democrats go is one of the first to talk about deficits and the debt, but the reality is. We can't afford not to make these vestments score. We will see economy stagnate, and since we're in a moment of distort low interest rates, and since these kinds of investments every time America's none have paid off investing our competitiveness in our infrastructure in our manufacturing base. Frankly they have much irate return than tax cuts, so as economic stimulus goes. I think this is the right way forward. Of course we got to be smart about the investments remain, and of course you can't get something for nothing. But, if you look at the overall picture, where are headed? We don't have a choice and we can handle these kinds of investments if we make before it's too late to a the I think that lowering corporate taxes helped. Corporations, become more competitive. Bring money back I think it. It was somewhat responsible for what we're pretty good. Economic Times before the pandemic and terms of historically low unemployment rates across the board. And some of the deregulation. The vice president is going to reverse the at least a portion of the corporate tax cuts. Do you not think that that that that plan helped the economy, do you? Do you disagree that lower corporate rates were were a boom for the US economy, and it won't matter to reverse them. John, I'm very skeptical that those rate cuts should get hosted at credit. And by the way those rate cuts rent led directly to exploding deficits, and as part of the reason, why oddly enough not to be too partisan about this, but across my lifetime one hundred percent of democratic precedents seem. Deficits go down one hundred percent. Presences seem deficits. Go Up, but you can't get something for nothing. And will we gotta decide is what's a responsible at tat hats not deliver the kind of investments that make an economy. and. This isn't something we have to just use our imagination for we look at the evidence and the evidence across Merton. History is the one we're making robust vassals with responsible, but not excessive taxation, the gross but I. We've talked about it earlier that right now with where American businesses and how important it is to get the unemployment rate back down. It seems like not the most ideal time to raise corporate taxes now. We're going to need to pay down a lot of what we've spent. A and maybe. Rick Razor on wealthy individuals, but that may not raise enough either. Are you for a blanket raised in the marginal rate into what level? or What. What would you advise? Vice President Biden to propose for a marginal rate across the board. Well. I would advise him to look at the evidence and find levels of taxation. They're consistent with growth as they have been historically now, of course, in American history, the economy's growing much quicker under much higher marginal tax rates but I don't think we have to go back to what it was like in the in the sixties or seventies. Again. Period of in many of those faces product to depress looked online. Is You've got to pay for what you and we should be able to strike a balance in the United States, but what we can't do is continue with these deficit. Exploding tax cuts that we were told would pay for themselves. You can check. They did and now. That was before we got the situation. We are now the debts. It's why we need to make sure. We're looking at the investment side as well as the cost side what I really appreciate about the plan. That's vice-presidents laying out. Is it does? Mayor Pete just wanted to. We wrestle with this issue of taxes. All the time said it's one of the press. Two questions related to one is just simply the timing of a tax increase, and it's the question. We asked the vice president when he joined us now more than a couple of weeks back, and he said he would do it immediately. Even amidst this and the question I say is to the to the extent. There are small business owners out there right now. That are clearly struggling and trying to get up on their feet. Seeing a tax increase right in front of them. Just make the case if if that's the case you WANNA, make in terms of the timing. Of course there's going to be a look at conditions on the ground and a glass. Four months has shown us in really blunt terms. How quickly things can change and I know that a new administration will make sure that every step that takes this is consistent with what the right thing is to do based on what we see around us, but we also know is that small business will benefit from the kinds of investments that president housing. And that this country will be more competitive one and were not successful. When we're investing the foundations, no country can't get away with disinvesting in education in infrastructure and research the way we have, and for a very long and the longer you go disinvesting and all that. The the sooner it's GonNa catch to you for small and big business away, and you know we already reached a point. Where even when there were low unemployment rates, the American standard of living was not secure life expectancy down. It raises questions about how our economy has been lined up. This is a historic opportunity to make sure that it's working for more Americans and made just GonNa fall with with the other big debate around this table a lot. is about wealth, the the wealthy and philanthropy yesterday? Warren Buffett gave away two point nine billion dollars and. which is a great thing and philanthropy, and by the way has helped even during this pandemic in a meaningful way, but oftentimes those shares are never taxed as we all know, and so the government will never be a beneficiary and other taxpayers won't be a beneficiary of those successes. Do you think philanthropy should be taxed in any way well, it would make more sense for that to happen on the front end. Look, it's it's wonderful one. There are these major commitments such generousness by. Individuals, but we've also got to ask how things got so unequal in the first place, because if a little bit more that was making its way into a democratically guided process in other words, the kinds of Research and development that invent trillion dollar ideas like the Internet itself and Space Travel. Are we know our country is better off, and we gotta ask where the balances I would argue. Look thing about this. In the United States right now there is not one county, not one. Where a fulltime minimum wage were can't afford a two bedroom apartment time. There's somebody works for a living in a job fulltime. Can't afford to bed in the part. I would argue that if that were the case. If we had higher wages and more public investment, we wouldn't need to knots landing quite as much as we did. Mayor Pete the one thing that President Biden's plan has in common with President Trump says that it it really leans intimate in America and not just from a position rhetoric there looks like there are going to be real incentives real penalties to companies if they're not making things in America. Do you think globalization is dead? I don't think we have to choose between closing ourselves off investing in our own country on the contrary I think global. Market, we are more competitive when we are starting right here at home made in America is really news and the vice president's fine America initiatives. Really good news for us here. The so called belt where we know that we are Cape. Producing some the finest goods in the world, but there are so many loopholes or waivers in the system and. I think you all report it. You know. Australia's actually gone up an awful lot under this administration so I don't do this since. The president. Fighting. I view it as an opportunity for us to make sure that taxpayer dollars benefit American firms and workers first,

We thought to push Joe Biden in I think Progressive Direction as we can work on very very hot but after exit after the election the struggle continues for health care for all for an economy that treats workers with respect and dignity but they require that they must have as human beings that we deal with climate change and we deal mccreesh meatball criminal justice reform. All the issues on the minds of the American people You know my suggestion is my. My belief is somebody who has seven grandchildren. This fair is not an option. We can't turn our backs LAMETA. How depressed become how upset. We may become the struggle is going on one hundred years and all of us who are alive right now in these very very dark moments. We've gotTA stand up. We gotTA fight back and make sure that we keep our eyes on the prize which is creating a nation which leads the world in society based on justice and Fan of not greed and deception. Well Senator Bernie Sanders. I deeply deeply appreciate your leadership in that respect. It's been an honor lifetime Working with you and I know we're going to continue to work together. And I hope that we will continue to watch your leadership on the national stage and hope that We can fight right alongside you so thank you for joining us today. Thank you for that clarity. Around the role of Medicare for all the what we need to do to respond to the economic insecurity that this has framed upon a Lotta people and you know now. It's hope in what has been a really challenging time. Senator really really appreciate your time. Well thank you very much toxin as usual. I want to tell you what I'm watching right now. Driven by ASTROTURF coordinated efforts by right wing groups. We've watched quote unquote protests pop up around the country. About how long to continue social distancing these protests have no doubt helped encourage a number of plans to reopen businesses in southern states like Georgia and South Carolina to be sure I think these plans are premature and will absolutely put people at risk and if you live in one of those states and you can do it. Stay home anyway. But then there's this which takes irresponsibility to a whole new low for mayor Maryland Goodman of Las Vegas a city undoubtedly hit extremely hard by the pandemic. You're you're talking about encouraging hundreds of thousands of people to come to Las Vegas. I get the financial losses. People are suffering. Which is awful. But you're encouraging I mean. Hundreds of thousands of people coming there in casinos smoking drinking touching slot machines breeding circulated air and then returning home to states around American countries around the world. Doesn't that sound like a virus? Petri dish I mean how is that. No it. Sounds like you're being an alarmist. I'm not I've lived a long life. I grew up in the heart of Manhattan. I know what it's like to be with. Subways buses and elevators. I think you are by saying what you have just said so. You don't believe there should be any social distancing. You don't believe that this is a believe there should be of course casino. That's up to them to figure out. Sorry but that's just crazy. I understand how devastating these stay at home owners can be for a city like Las Vegas whose economy relies so heavily on services and entertainment but there is no way around covert nineteen. We just have to get through this next week. We've got another special guest coming on and I wanNA hear from you.

"senator bernie sanders" Discussed on America Dissected with Abdul El-Sayed

"And I think what we have got to do and we have been weak in this area but we need to put together a health camp movement in this country which tells all candidates Democrats and Republicans? You know what was sick and tired of the cruelty and this function and the waste in this system healthcare as a human right for all people and we have to underline the fact we are the only nation on major nation. That doesn't guarantee helped you at all. I I am fifty miles away from the Canadian. Border me too. I'm in Michigan Southeast Michigan. So both of US ironically or a few miles away from the Canadian border and somehow spending about up as much per capita managed to provide healthcare to all of their people And have prescription drugs that are substantially more affordable access. The question that we have got to keep pounding away and I think we bring people together. We're GonNa win this and let's be very clear about it. The only source of opposition if the healthcare industry drug companies insurance companies etcetera were made over one hundred billion in profits last year they wanted McCain this dysfunctional system to continue their puppets. We've gotta take them on and if we will all is well we will win this like. Yeah I believe that too One of the things that flabbergasted me is that opponents of Medicare for all seem to want to point to other countries namely Italy to make the argument that somehow Medicare for all wouldn't have handled this pandemic better. What's your response to that Margaret Stanford is fat is nonsense They have countries like Taiwan which is a single payer system have done very very well. and books And countries around the world going to have been better positioned respond to this crisis. This is a horrible horrible sickness. You know this better than are and there's no country on earth is all that they should have done but commonsense to just that in America. We don't even have a system we have a decent team Collection of health care Components are not well organized at all prepared to deal with the Democrat or virtually anything else. So I I reject that argument points. I think the countries that have actually done a fairly good job. Yeah the other part of this this point that I always like to like to bring up is just that you know in no other circumstance in the world. Have we ever compared ourselves to Italy because like if people WANNA compare healthcare system to Italy? I'd say fine fine. I'm fine with that as long as you're willing to then draw down our military so that it's the size of Italy's if you want to do that and then I'm okay with it but you know unless we're willing to compare apples to apples than it doesn't really make sense to me. And at the same time these folks will also appoint the Porno countries. They look we. We do everything better than everyone else in like. Good if you WANNA bring that bravado forward then we should be doing a national healthcare program better than everyone else you are aware you go to Europe for example the most conservative people the most Conservative Party right. Now the guy who's head of you know wars Thompson instead of the is the prime minister in the UK conservative. None of these people will tell you that they want to go to the American model. Boris Johnson talking. Because the truth or not. I don't know talks about strengthening our show hold surface. They're the most conservative parties all over Europe in those parties. Nobody believes that healthcare is lock. Your main right. We are the exception to that rule. Internationally yeah and I bet Boris Johnson particularly right now is pretty thankful for the NHS right. He got some great care out there on on the other side of it. This corona virus pandemic has very much transcended healthcare. It has demonstrated what I think is a fundamental vulnerability that we have had on the economic front for a very long time and We're seeing people being forced between Keeping their livelihoods working eleven dollar. An hour jobs that are we also deemed essential. When for a long time we've we've deemed these people expendable or or staying home saving lives. A lot of your work has been about economic security In in a in a lot of ways you come to Medicare for all from the position of of economic security. Can you speak to what we should have done? If we wanted to be able to support something like this and people could come out of this knowing that they were going to be whole. Well your point is well taken that suddenly we are very very grateful to the. Emt workers for the ambulance drivers the cops or the firemen charges grocery store clerks or literally putting their lives on the line just felt dealt with up. People know post office. We close those opposed wonders as a result of this crisis. That's number one and number two. Interestingly enough you know we're seeing much higher dose rates from the illness in the African American community among poor people say not a gotten the healthcare. They need a store and throughout their lives And they all have the preexisting conditions whether it is diabetes whether it is high blood pressure whether it is obesity whether it stress in general And a number of the illnesses which have low in their ability to the immune or fight back against this disease and we're seeing terrible numbers In the African American community much higher than the white community because some all of the illness that people are are living with and are now falling prey to the virus. That makes you understand what's going on Tho I think what we looked at the current moment we are asking ourselves. How does that happen that so people living economic? That's version you know the grocery small quirks out there. They don't see themselves as early appeals. They see themselves with somebody. Go out and earn the eight or ten dollars an hour that they make 'cause they're going to feed their families and so I think when we look at this crisis it really points out not only to the this functionality by hope Kansas from the gross inequality Santos of your Khanna today for half but people paycheck to paycheck where millions of people living in dire poverty. And you talk about. Who's getting sick with your crowded into a an apartment house where a whole lot of people living together and one person gets the virus. Get other going to get it as well. We have a deplorable housing situation. All under and on it goes I think what the crisis has gone to do in my judgment is kind of magnify. Put a searchlight if like the spotlight on just all of the inequities in the current economy and system that we look on my My friend quarry is a gentleman who we interviewed last episode and He was reflecting on his experience. He and his dad both had covert nineteen and he's African American and works in in social services and he used a word that I think is just is fundamental here that that I think your really touching on as well as the idea of trust and he basically said look. Do you want understand disparities. Ask yourself why. If you're black in this country you would trust the authority to both provide for you and or to give you the information that you need to thrive and so much of what you're talking about is the fact that like you know so many of Of Our black and Brown sisters and brothers in this country just have not been able to trust the system to provide them. The basic means a dignified life. And and here. We are right when the wind blows the House of cards falls and folks are themselves. Just fundamentally vulnerable because of choices that we've made absolutely I mean this. Just say things about this number one again. This unprecedented disaster from healthcare and economic point to where we are today exposes can profoundly painful way the inequities in our society at the same time. I would hope that in the midst of all of this pain and all of this death and illness that maybe the American begin to think that we need a very different way forward. We need very different economic and health care structures in our society that provide a decent standard of living all of our people. Not just the basle income and wealth inequality that we see today. Yeah I You know on on that front We just saw the Senate just passed a another trench of package. Focused on relief and You know it was really focused on refilling the paycheck protection program and added you know some some funding for hospitals and a little bit for testing. You know you've been a champion of course for a far more broad-shouldered approach to this. Can you speak to what's what's missing? What the prospects are to being able to get there. We are going to start a little league. Cuddle up the phone a few minutes ago. Real working extremely hard. I want the American people to know that some of us are more than aware of this horrific crisis. They seem people of our country especially working people and low income people and we are working as hard as we can could try to address this crisis from a healthcare point of view and from an economic point to the other from an economic point of view what we are working on on I think we should emulate. What a number of European countries are doing as well as what we did in the last major bill the criminal three bill which provided a continuation. Paychecks two million workers in the airline industry awards if you work in the airline which has devastated by this crisis. Your work your flight attendant your pilot or your gate attendant. Whatever you may be you on going to continue to get any check and benefits. They receive before questions to my mind. European countries are often doing the same thing to my mind. That is bliss. Eagles easily administered concept to get money into the hands of working people. Thing is you went out with Medicare bowl during this crisis at the very niece. Very least what I want to see is all Americans have all of the healthcare that they need without out of pocket expense. Not If you have private insurance that's fine but I'm taking it away when.

"Over nineteen in nursing homes continues to drive the death toll upward Congress passes another Toronto Cova nineteen relief but for whom and trump response to it all by suspending new green parts. This is America dissected. And I'm your host Dr Abdul El-Sayed. Congress passed additional four hundred eighty billion dollar interim package. It adds another three hundred and twenty billion dollars to the paycheck prevention program and funneled. Some of the small business loan money through smaller banks. An additional seventy five billion dollars is earmarked for relief hospitals many of which are currently facing bankruptcy as they battled both covert nineteen and revenue slashed because of the reductions in elective procedures that are the lifeblood of most hospitals and then like an afterthought there's a little left over for the most important most critical most pressing and most locking aspect of our Federal Cova nineteen response. We're nowhere near where we need to be on. Testing needs to be more testing infrastructure. More test kits more capacity to test. And I don't think you're gonNA find a governor in the United States who feels differently about that when you get out into the into the field for the People. Were actually going to do the swabbing many times. They don't have the swamp we still need assistance with testing supplies and personal protective equipment. We have the capacity to double or triple the number of tests that we are doing but we need some of these supplies. That's right the all important testing the package includes twenty five billion dollars for testing which to be clear. Sounds like a lot of money but is woefully inadequate to reach the scale of the requirements. Either now or for the future test. Kit includes a number of smaller parts. Things like reagents and swabs and those things can't be sourced without federal coordination as New York Governor. Andrew Cuomo puts it. The federal government cannot white the hands of this and say oh. The states are responsible for testing. I don't do China relations. I don't do international supply chain and that's where the federal government can help to his credit. Trump has finally used his defense production act authorities for the testing swabs that were holding up testing capacities at scale. But that doesn't change the fact that we just need more testing a lot more testing. But what's also missing from this package? I? There's no support for states and municipalities. As a former city health official. I got to work with some of the most committed. Mo- selfless in most inspired public employees in the world and because of covert nineteen. They're facing furloughs or outright layoffs in the middle of a damn pandemic those people will suffer because of this but the people they serve every day in the city will to also. Mia is support for everyday. Americans in the form of rent relief or hazard pay more direct support for Americans who are struggling right now congresswoman Alexandria. Cortez put it this way. Hospital workers do not have protective equipment. We don't have the necessary ventilators in but we have to go into this. Vote is white open. What did the Senate majority fight for one of the largest corporate bailouts with few strings as possible in American history shameful? The greed of that fight is wrong for crumbs for our families and the option that we have is either let them suffer with nothing or to allow this greed and billions of dollars which will be leveraged into trillions of dollars to contribute to the largest income inequality gap in our future. There should be shame about what was fought for in this bill and then of course there's no support for actual healthcare in the middle of a healthcare crisis. Unemployment numbers are nearing an all time. High more than twenty six point. Four million people have filed for employment in addition to the millions who lacked healthcare before the pandemic millions more will lose health care now and while some employers are doing all they can to keep workers on insurance benefits and some insurers are waving out of pocket costs this pandemic has exposed one of the deepest wells of insecurity in our society our healthcare system while many of advocated for covert nineteen testing and treatment to be affordable. One has to ask. Why wouldn't it just be free and even beyond cove in nineteen? It's not like all the other diseases. The heart attacks broken bones and appendicitis have just gone away. People still need care for those things to. Why shouldn't they be free? That's the question. My guest today has been asking his entire career. He's made the fight for universal government. Health insurance a hallmark of his political career. He's the reason why Medicare for all is even on the map into someone. I've looked up to since the first time I heard him speak a bill. A senator.

Stay safe just as a matter of disclosure I did endorse him for president this primary just as he endorsed me. When I ran for governor joining us today is a very special guest. Somebody I've looked up to For a very long time and who has inspired millions built the public conversation that we are sharing right now about where we ought to go with healthcare and that Senator Bernie Sanders senator. Thank you so much for taking the time to join us today. Bill you so much for having me on the PODCAST and thank you. All the great work you've been doing on this corona virus and fighting for Medicare for all you know this moment has in so many ways demonstrated just how fragile our for profit. Healthcare system is and I know that you hear from people all over the country all the time. And can you talk a little bit about how this pandemic is Is Hitting folks in what the world might look like if we had medicare for all instead of what we have right now. The American people understand that our help. Justice is wasteful. It's expensive it's dysfunctional. It's cool. They no not for a long time and increasingly understand that but right now because of the economic collapse. Where is up today? Some twenty six million people. How specially wash their jobs and applied find employment competition numbers actually greater than that reality that many millions of people losing their jobs. They're losing their healthcare also goes under our system for many people. Healthcare employee benefits. Not a human right so as the economy collapses and people lose their jobs. They're losing their healthcare. And what that means is that people now increasingly understand that we've got to move to a Medicare for all single payer system which means that whether you're employed whether you're unemployed young whether you're old you are entitled the healthcare because you are human big being in it would've changed so much about the experience that That people are having right now. You talked about people. Losing their Their their jobs and therefore losing their healthcare. Because you know we think about this as a benefit not a right But you also look at the fragility of of hospitals right. You've got doctors. Why talk to every day and they're struggling without P can you? Can you speak to How we would've been able to support them chose the the protective Equipment that are doctors and nurses need it also has to do with the fact that unbelievably in the midst of this crisis got millions of people who can't go to a doctor because they can't afford to go to the doctor on the normal circumstances we lose thirty to sixty thousand people a year because they don't go to a doctor when they should and right now somebody has the symptoms of culprit nineteen people. I'm coughing whatever. They can't afford to go to the doctor in states. Totally unfair and top of all that what you're seeing hospital at the hospital because elective surgery and procedures now being postponed. They're running out of money. How are we in a moment? We're in the worst healthcare crisis history and doctors and nurses are being laid off and hospitals on the verge of bankruptcy it is. It's devastating to watch and you know you're absolutely right. You can imagine a hospital right when it's in. Its time of Greatest. Need and in in greatest responsibility now has to worry about fighting the the bankruptcy That is imminent and fighting. Covert nineteen fact. We just had a hospital in Michigan. basically lay off something like twenty five hundred staff in the middle of this pandemic middle of a crisis. And you're like you mean to tell that those folks aren't needed right now But it's just that they can't be paid for they exactly. They were being in the middle of withdrawing troops beers. You can't afford bite. That's that's that's exactly right. I I WANNA I wanNA ask you You know as you've been working on this issue for a very long time and you know because of your leadership Medicare for all is something that is on the national consciousness. It's a it's a household Household idea you know a lot of folks look to your campaigns over the last five years as Where they went to be a part of the fight for Medicare for all. Where do you see that fight going from here? What I'll campaigns manage to do is sort of a candidate. I was given by the media. It's like they couldn't help it and I was able to talk about your aunts. People you know up there and you say to people. Do you think makes any sense at all that we have spending twice as much per person on health care for the people of any other country and eighty seven million uninsured or healthcare outcomes in terms of life expectancy infant mortality. Not Particularly. Good people have caught. This is crazy. Should the function of healthcare to make huge profits for the drug companies? The insurance companies know it should not. So you're asking. Where do we.

"And we've got to change it talked to you about sort of how you see yourself fitting into Democratic Party politics at this point interesting news today about Steve Bullock. He was in and out in a hot minute. And the presidential race and Democrats are ecstatic today about the reports that he is going to jump into that Senate rate send Montana because he's perceived to be the best shot at winning back that the Democrats which would go along way toward getting Mitch McConnell out of Control of the Senate now when he was running for president part of the reason he articulated for why he was running for president because he worried that the primary was two left he were the policies like Medicare for all your signature. Healthcare policy was going to be alienating to too many potential Democratic voters so in a universe in which you're the leading war one of the two leading candidates for the nomination you may be the nominee. Steve Bullock is a very important democratic Senate nominee. Potentially in Montana. Can you help him get elected or do you have to keep your distance that he will he will make decisions but of course? I can help them at the. I've heard this argument a whole lot of time. I believe that in the general election the way you be trump. Is that the largest voter turnout in history. This country do not underestimate donald trump. You'll have endless amounts of money. Because he doesn't believe in the rule of law He will combine federal agencies with his own campaign. He has loyal group of supporters. So it's going to be so easy to beat them but I believe that it will be very hard to beat him when you're running a old fashioned type of campaign when you're running a you know the same old same old. You need energy. You need excitement. We need to bring working class people into the campaign some of them may have voted for trump. We need to bring young people into the campaign. Maybe who never voted before? And you talk about Medicare for all Medicare for all is wildly popular with working class and lower income people who understand that we have a dysfunctional health care system. We are spending twice as much and by the way I would love to debate Joe Biden on this issue. Give us an hour on. Msnbc all right where we can talk about how anybody could defend a system in which we're spending twice as much per capita on healthcare as the people of any other country and yet eighty seven million uninsured thirty thousand die. Half a million people go bankrupt every year because a medically related debt and we spent far and away the highest prices the world for prescription drugs. You want to defend that system. Let's do it. I think that that is an issue that wins that speaks the needs of working families people the test the greed and the corruption of the pharmaceutical industry is president of the United States. I will take them on. You know I'm GonNa ask you the follow-up question now about turnout because you you as long as I have been talking to you about American politics you have made this case and I have. I believe it that turnout is the difference in that when it comes to progressive politics in particular increased turnout gets you and increase shot of not only changing Democratic Party but changing the country. And the turnout is not there for you. The turn out is the turnout does not look good. Thus far in the Democratic primary we can talk about that in detail. But I know you're aware of it but let me just say this in terms of young people. I mean one of the issues that should be talked about to his credit and I wish we could do better. Joe Biden is doing very very well with people. Sixty five rolled. We're not doing phenomenally. Well with people thirty or undone now. Which Group of people is there? More potential to grow the base the bring people in clearly. Young people historically have not voted in the kinds of numbers that one would like them to vote. It's going up but it is nowhere near as high as it is with all it's not going up and that's with your campaign right now. Firing on all cylinders and all the benefit you out from all the amazing organizing you didn't 2016. No states last night's on increase in young voters as a percentage of the electorate compared with twenty sixteen in in North Carolina and Tennessee and Virginia even here in Vermont Young voters made up a smaller proportion of the electorate than in twenty sixteen. Why are fewer young people turning out in twenty twenty? I mean what I will tell you is that an I what we tripled. We increase by thirty three percent. The number of young people who participate. I'm not familiar with these statistics. I really haven't seen them but look. This is the challenge that we have. We have the lowest voter turnout of almost every major country on earth less than sixty percent poor people in America by very big numbers. Do not vote. How do we bring them into the political process? Why do they not go? Why are young people not only? This is tough stuff. And you're right. We are trying to do that. I understand that it is easier to bring older. People have been voting for their whole lives but we are working really hard to try to bring people out. I think in the general election we will be successful. I WANNA I WANNA go back to that in terms of the general election how it might be different but on this question of working class voters in Virginia. Virginia was the one St yesterday where we actually did see a bit of a surge in voters without a four year college degree. In Virginia it was up in terms of raw numbers and the proportion from two thousand sixteen but Joe Biden carried. Those voters two to one and we didn't see a surge and working class voters and other states. And because it's the because it's so central to your idea of what your brand of politics is why people should get involved in the electoral process. But I don't understand is why and more while you're not this year and what I have seen. Is that in the previous states. In fact we did very well with working class people. This is the first one I'm hearing about that. But at the end of the day I have not the slightest out in the world that our campaign is the campaign that speaks the working class. People who have long been ignored with establishment has turned their backs on them. And if you look at the numbers Medicare for all is extremely popular with working class. People who cannot afford to pay in some cases twelve fifteen thousand dollars a year for the healthcare that they currently have so. I have zero doubt that our agenda which calls for raising the minimum wage to fifteen bucks demanding that the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes dealing with climate change through a green new deal in creating up to twenty million jobs. That is the agenda that will win the election of the trump and the argument is that the agenda will drive the turnout overall. You've talked about needing the biggest voter turnout that America has ever seen and that you needed in those specific swabs the electorate that are underrepresented. That don't feel politics. Works for them. If the agenda is working to spike turn out in those groups to bring it up overall and I will tell you. The data says that. It's not right now in two thousand twenty data in the state. The early three states that you won the turnout was either. It was either flat or it was statistically significant in terms of its Nevada. One hundred twenty percent increase. Voter turnout New Hampshire the largest voter turnout in the history. I always flat. I was flat New Hampshire. When you compare it with two thousand and eight you look at population. Two thousand eight was when Obama ran his campaign. Yes all right. Well that's fine well bomber ran and exceptional campaign but in the Vata turnout was twenty percent higher. Shot Lodges Voter Turnout in. Its history was slow in terms of. Do you think that you should be able to match two thousand eight voter turnout numbers? I would hope so and I hope that in the general election I think the fact that here's the point about the general election number one. I believe I know that every Democratic candidate will support the widow. Those who have left the race. I will support Biden Biden will support me. We will bring together ninety nine percent of all Democratic voters. That's not the question they've got to come in. Because trump is the most dangerous president in modern history doesn't understand the constitution doesn't care for the rule of law is a racist and sexist et CETERA. We will get them so the challenges. How do you expand the vase? And if anybody thinks you could do it through the same old same old type of politics I would respectfully disagree your energy. You're GONNA need excitement and I think that is the campaign that we have. And by the way I do not accept that Medicare Medicare for all polled very well. Yesterday among Democratic voters demanding the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes is extremely popular with the concept of a wealth tax that Elizabeth Warren and I have talked about is a very popular concept so I believe that not only. Are the ideas that I am talking about? Ideas that are long overdue ideas that exists in many cases in every other country. You're talking about Medicare for all you know we all right now. Fifty miles from the Canadian border go up to Canada. Everybody there has health care is a human right. The quality is good. They're spending less that fifty percent of what we're spending. Why why are you saying? And it speaks to the power of the drug companies the insurance companies who dominate because on and healthcare they make one hundred billion a prophet eighty seven million. People uninsured underinsured. I don't think it's a radical idea Rachel. I don't think making public colleges and universities as radical idea it exists in Germany existing countries and Scandinavia. All over the world and then you get the climate change. Is it radical to say that we should try to save the planet and tell the fossil fuel industry can't destroyed the planet? I don't think it's a radical idea so I reject problems that we have to use an extremist. There's nothing we are fighting for. That is extreme would exist all over this country it is what the American people want and are sanders. Have a lot more to ask you about including some news about corona virus a very surprising new proposal from the trump administration related to corona virus. That has a little touch on the Medicare for all right. Let's talk about that when we come back we're with Senator Bernie Sanders Vermont here in Burlington..

"Part of it too is like it's the angst having decision being made so so it's like. Bloomberg talked before Bloomberg is on the debate stage off last week but it didn't go. Well that's what I hear. Well but here's the thing about that it's like you know there's always the image of a candidate. The initial part of the candidate is always nicer than like when they get when they get the muck. And you know that's just going to happen with. Everyone really happened to Mike. Bloomberg who has a lot of things that he's very active along had sixty seven billion other things that he can try and help people forget what they saw because he can micro target to use specifically with glasses who lives in Brooklyn or whatever it may be and help you miss remember. We saw if you were watching. Hopefully they don't tune in this week but some of the other some of the turnout anxieties and everything I think are also a product of an establishment and punditry that made this so much about this notion of electability which we know can get armed around identity. Gender race left Politics Center politics and this was made so much about league was GonNa win with this false. I know the path and I know who it's all fake all wrong but what it did was take away the process which as it should be people go out and vote for the people and who they want to be president and that's not happening so far and it needs to happen if we're going to get a candidate that people are really exciting. I think yes. I totally agree with that. It was like my one framework for entering. This whole thing was just like I don't know who's electable and you shouldn't worry about that because no one does and you should vote for and we end up with his. You end up. With a version of the housing bubble where people are buying homes flipped as opposed to live in them into the Nick Barmby Properties. Because some other spos- going to take them right. It's like but but I think Chris would especially with voters of color the day showing a lot of voters of color. Don't vote their first choice now because we have to think about voters are going to do and we've seen abusive misbehaved. Four leaf as far as the Democrats are concerned the independence and so the single issue sort of color is not Donald Trump in two thousand twenty. So it's like I made love Elizabeth Harris. But it's like but I know that you know the data shows white men. Women are not going to go for that so maybe I should just go with someone who's electable even if they're not my first or second choice and trump is was scoring in that regard rightly so it's like. Oh my God if we can get this and there's been a constant refrain that he is an existential threat to the country. True or not. I think it's very moderate. Certainly an existential threat to to different cohorts within this country directly. I mean people for caller caller. I think are like feeling the implications of that more and so the it does make some sense that electability even if you can't establish what it is you would aim fats thing. It's like if someone could give you a magic pill that says like here's the future. Here's the numbers for all these people. Then like yeah I can see taking the. I think I'd probably would vote with that. But there's no magic pill people who told you that that pill for example with Joe Biden is part of. What's on display right now? Sam Cedar Christina Greer and Rebecca traced her. Thank you for joining us this week.

"Sanders prepares for tonight's town hall in South Carolina. He'll be on the stage in about fifteen minutes. He's facing criticism. Following his comments about Fidel Castro. Sanders sat down with me for an interview for sixty minutes that aired last night here some of the report that air back in the nineteen eighties sanders had some positive things to say about the former Soviet Union and the Sandinistas Nicaragua and everybody was totally convinced. Areas explaining why the Cuban people didn't rise up and help the US. Overthrow Cuban leader. Fidel Castro educated. The kids gave healthcare totally transformed a society with very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba. But you know you. It's unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know when Fidel Castro came into office. You know what he did. He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing. Even though Fidel Castro did a lot of dissidents imprisoned in in that's right and we condemn that unlike Donald Trump. Let's be clear you're GONNA. I do not think that Kim Jong UN is a good friend. I don't trade love letters with murdering dictator Vladimir Putin not a great friend of mine supporters of Sanders. Point out that he's essentially saying something very similar to what President Obama wants said about education healthcare and Cuba my Bloomberg and P Buddha judge will kick to criticize sanders remarks and some Florida Democrats have also attack Sanders Florida's obviously a state vital to democratic coach for the presidency November Democratic Congresswoman. Debbie Mccarthy Sal Powell Powell joins me now her district is in south Florida congresswoman. Thanks so much for being with us. You're calling Senator Sanders. Comments absolutely unacceptable. Is Sanders wrong? What he said Anderson as the first South American member of Congress represent thousands of Cuban American families that have fled the brutal dictatorship under the regime. And and yes. They are completely unacceptable. The Cuban regime continues to oppress. Its people it continues to cause unspeakable harm to thousands of families. It's actually currently propping up another brutal dictatorship in Venezuela and Those comments are extremely hurtful to so many people here in my area and very offensive. But is he actually wrong? Factually a greed obviously everything you said about brutal dictatorships absolutely sanders did say we oppose the authoritarian nature of the regime. He condemns impressing dissidents. What he said was what? President Obama said about Cuba back in two thousand sixteen. Which is you know yeah. They have their literacy rates are very high and actually for country that poor that they their medical care is relatively good for Latin America. Look there's a saying here in south Florida by many Cubans that they say Gusto may have given US healthcare and education but he didn't give us breakfast lunch or dinner so the reason why the Cuban people have not been able to rise up is because he has targeted any of its dissidents by jailing them and many times even murdering them. So that is why the Cuban people continue to be oppressed and I will continue to send up for my community against any harmful policies or comments. Like the one the senator made. And that's why I have been continuing to send up to the trump administration because he has consistently targeted immigrants. That are living in my district. He has consistently consistently rejected any sort of a gun. Violence reform that we have sent him to the Senate and I will continue to do that. That is what I was elected to stand up for my community. And that's what I intend to do. I do want to play our viewers. The what President Obama had said which a lot of supporters or sanders are pointing to in the wake of this. Let's let's play that. I said this to President Castro in Cuba. I said look. You've made great progress in educating young people. Every child in Cuba gets a basic education. That's that's a huge improvement from where it was. But you drive around Havana. This economy's not working as offensive to you Anderson. I am going to be very strong against anyone making any comments giving any credit to Gusto. I mean let's be clear. Here we still have of Cubans that are here trying to be reunited with their families. The trump administration closed down a program which I actually introduced a bill called the Cuban reunification parole program to restart that program. People are trying to leave that country so again. They may have introduced literacy programs but what they also introduced a dictatorship that has targeted so many thousands of families that continue to suffer the pain and the suffering from that regime. How do you think this does this long term do you think this hurts? Senator Sanders certainly among the people who are presented in South Florida for me. Personally I'm GonNa continue to just focus on all the work that we've been doing in the House of Representatives. I do think that it may hurt the senator and I I would invite him to come down to south Florida and actually meet with some of these families so he understands pain that those comments costs a congressman. I appreciate your time. Thank you so much. Thank you so much Anderson. Quick programming notes spoke with actress and Activists Rosanna arquette. After today's filmmaker Harvey Weinstein.

"Pheno is the wonder of the world on that Diet thing. Beloved one ranked nine seventy five thousand fans any swept away by the way but they didn't stop the Casino. Take two million dollars. But I didn't last within a year. The Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy was eventually sold off for about four cents on the dollar. So it'd be understandable if trump may be lost his appetite after that and that's due in sixty seconds. All trump is a famously picky eater as far as we know his diet mostly consists of Meatloaf well-done steaks with Ketchup and handers which is probably making things real tricky right now all. He's in India where many people revere cows of course sacred some places meeting so taboo. It's not done in public. And according to people familiar with trips planning the Prime Minister of India. A devoted vegetarian plans to serve vegetarian. Food to the president now on previous trips trump's staff has intervened to make sure he gets food. He likes what exactly that means. We're not sure but a former officials said on this situation quote. I don't know what he's going to do this case. They don't serve cheeseburgers person close to trump. Who has done with him on? Several occasions said he has salad with the meal every now and then but other than that quote I have never seen him eat a vegetable now all this could be partially due to the fact that his doctor running Jackson never got the chance to help trump get healthier after that infamous physical because he was forced out following allegations about inappropriate behavior. Ronnie Jackson recently told The New York Times quote. The exercise never took off as much as I wanted it to but we were working on his diet. You're making the ice cream less accessible. We were putting cauliflower into the mashed potatoes. Apparently someone else intervening some people. Have you know? Just great jeans told the President that if you've got a healthier dot over the last twenty years two hundred years old I don't know I mean. He has incredible. He has incredible jeans. I just assumed you notice. There's a bit of a freakout among certain segments of Democrats.

"Talked before the break about Bernie Sanders victory over the weekend in Nevada. And what it may say about his chances in the racist to come he performed especially well there among Hispanic voters and with African American Center Sanders which is six percentage points behind Joe Biden which means he's making inroads among the very voters who biden has been counting on and he'll be turning out a much higher numbers in South Carolina back now with our political team. David is South Carolina. Doodo four Vice President Biden. I mean if you can't win. They're Kenny Kenny win. I do think that I think he is so pointed to South. Carolina is the place where he was going to have a good showing. He's underperformed in the first two states. He did the bare minimum in Nevada but got beaten pretty badly by Bernie Sanders. This is a state with fifty five to sixty percent. African American vote That is his base He should do very well in this state. If he were to lose here he was going to. He's going to have to reconsider his race. First of all he has to raise money and it's very and he hasn't done very well at it so far. He's not going to do very well if he loses this. I think he's going to have to reevaluate. They seem very confident that they can pull this off if they don't then it's very bad news. I mean if Biden winds in South Carolina does that I mean if you're Bernie Sanders. Does that really were you. It's not as I mean it sanders. Who has the Movement? Who's pulling big crowds? And who has you know a a lot of money right now Bernie Sanders forty five delegates and Joe Biden has about fifteen so even even if Joe Biden picks up some more and South Carolina. He's still probably going to be behind. Bernie Sanders. I don't think that this is a calculus for Bernie going into Tuesday. I think coming out of Super Tuesday is really going to be a testament to where things stand and who ends up staying in the race What's interesting to me too is that we're going to have to start talking more about the actual issues on the campaign trail right now. We keep talking about electability. And there's this presumption that the person who is more moderate in this case. Joe Biden is the person that people think is electable. I don't think that's the case I think that Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders are having conversations about real issues that young people and people of color care about and when Joe Biden starts talking about more of the same. He loses some of those folks and at the end of the day. I think that those issues are going to come back to the fore and matter in terms of mobilizing the base again and who's actually be able to have movement Senator Klobuchar Buddha judge. They've struggled to show that they can attract minority voters and both of them didn't do well with Latinos in Nevada if they fail in South Carolina does that I mean are they done. Does that cement the narrative that they just they can't build a diverse coalition. Yeah I mean it's horrid to think where they go from there. What states can p Buddha judge or Amy Klobuchar win on Super Tuesday or come close right? You've got states like California. You've got states like Texas. You need money. You need a coalition right. I mean that's the whole thing. Buddha judge talks about being inclusive candidate talks about people having a sense of belonging if he wins the presidency but he doesn't actually have a coalition and Amy Klobuchar of the same thing. I think they're in single digits. Four or five percent among African Americans in South Carolina didn't do well with Latinos so yeah for a lot of these candidates really is put up or shut up time. A particularly after Super Tuesday's those big big states California almost five hundred delegates. If you're any of these candidates that hasn't been able to really put together any sort of fundraising sort of energy any sort of crowds. Any sort of just outright victories. It's hard to see how you go on and David. What about Elizabeth Warren? Yeah go ahead. Yeah I was GONNA I was GONNA say I mean. I think she is an interesting question. She continues to do fairly well in national polls show was one out over the weekend where she was running. Second to Bernie Sanders. He's underperformed in these first few states she did and one interesting nuance of Nevada. Was she had a very strong debate and she did very well among those voters who said they decided at the end she. She was in the twenties with those voters. Can she have another strong debate? Performance tomorrow that translates into a surprise. Finish here she's the one candidate I would think Bernie Sanders would like to see out of the race because he competes with her. She competes with him for some of those votes on the left. So she's an interesting candidate but she has to pull off something of a surprise here if she has another fourth or fifth place showing. It's GonNa I think it's going to depress her ability to do well going into Super Tuesday. Yeah I just wanted to jump in and just add something to what name. Alita was just saying this idea about building a coalition so crucial and. I just don't understand where say a Bloomberg who has spent all of his time not talking to people not building a coalition on the ground that actually mobilizing a base but throwing adds up. I don't know where the folks who were just playing an add game think that they're actually going to get real voters from. I mean to start to Tom. Sires credit he's been buying ads but he's also out there talking to people my whole family and South Carolina's like we've been hearing from him But the idea that you can just run this as a marketing campaign. It doesn't work that way because you thanks very much David Thank you appreciate it at the White House pushing back on reports of Russia's preference president trump what we know and don't about a now controversial House intelligence meeting the one consensus by the election is that Russians are indeed interfering again but whether to any one candidates benefit. Well that's where the waters get muddy multiple conflicting reports now about a house intelligence briefing earlier. This month have only complicated. The matter one into detergents official tells CNN that the initial characterization of Russia actively aiding the president was quote misleading national security official went far. They're saying that Russia sees the president as a dealmaker to help untangle the story or bring. Cnn to Alex Marquardt so what went wrong in this briefing Biden. Intelligence official of Of Congress Well Anderson. This really seems to be a story of nuance and overstatement. And and this briefing took place behind closed doors classified briefing to the House Intelligence Committee by the most senior election security official in the intelligence community. Her name is Shelby Pearson. And what we're told including by an intelligence official who told me a couple of hours ago is that she did not go into what was a very routine briefing with talking points that included a possible Russian support for any of the candidates but it clearly came up and what she said. According to numerous officials is that there is Russian support and preference both for president. Donald Trump as well as Senator Bernie Sanders In the Democratic primary of course those things are not usually exclusive when your goal as Russia's is to sow discord and division. Now we're the nuance comes in. Where we have to be clear is that there's no intelligence assessment. There's no evidence that Russia is actively working to support any of the candidates including those two men. I spoke with the senior intelligence official and just the past hour. Who said that at no point did Shelby Pearson say that Russia is aiding in the reelection of president trump? Clearly Anderson? It was taken that way by some. And now we've seen Pearson's former boss. The former acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire get pushed out and now replaced by the present with ambassador. Rick Grenell who has no intelligence expertise? So is there. I mean it's confusing. Is their clarity on the goals and the tactics of the Russians. I mean they're interfering. What is the goal? What are the tactics? There is no disputing that. Russia is meddling. They continue to. They never stopped. Their goal is chaos division anger pitting us against each other an elections official at the FBI earlier today said that their goal is to watch US tear ourselves apart. And so what? We're seeing in terms of the tactics are some of the old tactics that we've seen before as well as an evolution in those tactics intelligence officials tell us that there will be an evolution in their playbook They're gonNA come at these elections with misinformation disinformation campaigns getting Americans on social media to share things that make us angry and divide. Us and misinform US There are going to be likely hacking situations in which they go after candidates campaigns parties election infrastructure. And one. Interesting thing that. We're keeping an eye on Anderson. That officials have talked about is Russians using servers here in the United States which means that agencies like the NSA and the over work overseas. We'll have a much harder time keeping an eye on and thwarting that Russian Threat Anderson. Alex appreciate it thanks. President trump is feeling vindicated. The second day in a row he lashed out at House. Intelligence Committee chairman. Adam Schiff here. He tweeted a link to comments by Congressman Jim Jordan. The president wrote quote setup by shifts lies and leaks. Same with Muller witch-hunt three years ago. Joining me now is former director of National Intelligence and National Security James Clapper. He's also author of the book facts and fears hard truth from a life in intelligence director. Clapper so you see a lot. See The fallout from this intelligence briefing. I know you had similar briefings. Lawmakers and president-elect trump's team back in two thousand and seventeen about Russia's influence in the two thousand sixteen election. How does something this important either misstated or misinterpreted? What do you think went on here? Well obviously don't know Anderson since Wasn't there and nobody's talking to me. for understandable reasons about what did happen. I think probably Shelby Pearson went in with kind of the under the operating premise which was the basis for setting up her office. The Dan Coats did last summer with the premise that the Russians are going to continue to behave as he didn't twenty sixteen interfering in our election. And we'll probably be supportive of president trump and the election isn't until November. The Russians will evolve their strategy and tactics as time goes on just as they did in the run up to the twenty sixteen campaign but their basic objectives have not changed and they want someone that they're comfortable with an in the White House that they can deal with and they want to so much doubt discord and Distrust in this country as a possibly clan can just as they did in two thousand sixteen and regrettable. Regrettably we are ripe target for that and of course what's recently happened with at Odeon. I with the firing essentially of a Joe McGuire Andrew Hallman. That's the opposite director National Intelligence Odeon and his acting director. Well this place perfectly to Putin's hand so now he is demonstrably weakened the US intelligence community and Succeeded in having the intelligence community cowed into reporting on those activities. So the winner in all of this is what Putin and Russia I mean. It's no surprise the president's pounce on this he's obviously going to be over any mistake by the intelligence community as it relates to Russia. And the election. Can you fault him on that? Can I fall president trump? Yeah for for jumping on this. I mean it does. It does seem the clearly whatever happened in this briefing. I mean it's not really clear what happened I guess? Well it's not your obviously it is. I mean it. It plays to his paranoia and and insecurity. I suppose but I mean it's correct for him to be sensitive about it.

"It's not the way. The campaigns work there are people so I understand that sanders tweeted about the democratic establishment. Can't stop us and Republicans can't stop us. I think there's a sense that the senator has people around him that there are powerful forces. That don't WanNa see them. Be the president of the nominee. But I want to. I want you to address people that don't feel that way but have faith concerns. Okay people who I talked to be people out there who are like this guy is going to get creamed. Are you out of your mind? A seventy eight year old democratic socialist. This is going to be McGovern again. Like there are people who don't eight Bernie Sanders might even like some of his policies. Who genuinely just worry about that. What what is the talk you give to a person who approaches you in good faith and says that well so first of all Bernie Sanders run for President before ninety nine percent of people in this country know who he is. And that's a wonderful asset to have certainly benefited us over the course of this campaign and when you ask people what do you know about Bernie Sanders. You often get a substantive answer in response you either get. Oh he fights for Medicare for all or he fights the corporate special interests and billionaire power. That means that when you look at head to head polls around the country is built on a spine that number that you see of him. Beating trump head to head in Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania. Nationally suggests that people know who he is and so for any concern that might be out there about. Oh this label that label socialism. Whatever you know what outperforms that the name Bernie Sanders. They know who he is. They know what he fights for and that means when the assault and the attack common all know that they will. He'll hold up to them because his support has been based off of such substance. So here's so that segues to the one of the things happening today so there's also a fear right that there's like he's been around for thirty forty years. He said a bunch of stuff. He's written a bunch of stuff. He's praised various world leaders. Some of whom were heads of Marxist insurgencies in Latin America. He said that Fidel Castro part of the popularity of the early years revolution had to do with the provision of literacy and health. Care that was. He was asked about that Anderson Cooper interview on on Sunday night. There was a bunch of Florida. Democrats basically saying today no red. Line Castro's terrible. We don't want a Democratic Party that's phrasing Castro and the merits of the sting aside. Isn't that exactly the kind of thing that worries you or worries people about Sanders electability so from my perspective Chris is one of the reasons that I love and fight for Bernie Sanders. There's integrity and honesty that you get with him and what that means is when you ask them a direct question. He gives you a direct response that comes from his heart and from his soul tells you exactly what he's thinking right and that means that sometimes you may disagree with his perspective. But you know he's street he's shooting straight with you. He's not playing a political game. So when you ask them about. Hey how about Cuba Castro? Oh well he's an authoritarian. He's engaged in human rights abuses however there was some good things that happened in Cuba and so we should acknowledge those two. And that's an honest answer and then other people play political games. And that's why for instance Chris. I think over the course of this campaign. We benefited from the fact that his shooting his integrity. Honesty rises above other people's efforts to try to a offer political barbs and try to throw cheap shots in the kitchen sink. Adam he rises above it. Because what he's telling you is what he believes and what he will fight for old. We're going to be tested. But I think it's a pretty good answer. I you care. Thank you very much. Thank you Max. New reporting the president's purging of anyone not ready to fall in line and the administration's motives are just as corrupt as we feared the details in two minutes. So you WANNA be president. I've watched many candidates for their party's nomination but only a few knew how to get it. Hey for this microphone. My podcast is about what it takes to get the nomination. Six episodes six timeless themes that separate the few winners from the many losers hope still lives and the dream shall never die.

"I'm Chris as we are one week and one day away from Super Tuesday. The biggest day of the two thousand twenty primary season day that when all of a sudden could create a delegate lead for one candidate that then becomes surmountable essentially giving them the nomination over the weekend. Senator Bernie Sanders one big in Nevada. Coming off of strong finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire he now has significant delicately just a small number of delegates. Have been a portion. But he's got a lead headed into South Carolina. This Saturday Vice President Joe Biden has been the favourite in South Carolina. Since the very moment he announced he was running. Probably even before announced. It's been seen as the one early state of the first four that he was absolutely sure to win. Latest NBC polling shows Biden Sanders Neck and neck Biden has a four point lead and the latest national polling. Sanders is in the lead in. This race is set yet people with my job. Have a tendency to overreact. With every new incremental movement and declare. It's over it's finished before it is but it seems like there are many people both inside and outside the Democratic Party who are shocked Bernie. Sanders is doing so well. This success those should not be that surprising. Let me explain why if you want to win. The Democratic primary. Two Thousand Twenty there are three fundamental things you needed to do to come out on top one. You need to put up wins. You got to win states get more votes than any of the other competitors because you have to get more delegates than the other people were running against you to you have to have an organization and crucially money that can allow you to play in a dozen different states at the same time because Super Tuesday is so massive this year and come so early and three. This is crucial. You need to have a multi-racial coalition in the diverse Heterogeneous Democratic Party of the Twenty First Century Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who is checking all those boxes. It was the third one that tripped him up. The last time I remember that was his problem he had the first two he did get some wins and he did have money. Raised a lot of money from the grassroots. He just could not make real inroads with black and Latino voters and that's changed him just look at Nevada because the new morning console national polling sanders has at least a ten point lead on his next closest rivals remember. There's also a very rich history. Where the runner up and a previously contested primary becomes the nominee of the next time around. I mean that's literally what happened between two thousand and two thousand John McCain in two thousand eight and two thousand twelve Mitt Romney and two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen with Hillary Clinton and that makes a certain sense. You have a leg up on the field. The second time you run for President Bernie. Sanders is huge name. Recognition the country. He was just running for president for years ago. He was on the ballot. Tens of millions of votes. He spent years campaigning. He has high favorability ratings. Sanders campaign has been impressive to get to this point and it's not by accident. Bernie Sanders and the people running. His campaign did not just stumble into it because they very much understood what they needed to do differently this time around and so far. They've been doing it. And so far. It has been paying dividends. That's why Bernie. Sanders is currently front runner in the race and to Democrats. Who are freaking out. I'd say this is what democracy looks like. It's what primers four. So Far Bernie. Sanders is the most support of any of his competitors. And someone is going to have to beat him in order to stop him joining me now. For more on how Senator Bernie Sanders built this early. John Ralston editor the Nevada Independent. Who's been covering Nevada politics for more than thirty years and Jennifer Medina national political reporter for the New York Times her latest piece which is Great. Titled how Bernie. Sanders dominated the needed in Nevada. John let me start with you. The final numbers for Sanders and the delegate apportionment are enormous partly because other people missed the cutoff but are you surprised by the significance the size of the victory here. I'm not that surprised Chris and I'll tell you. Why did three things that you mentioned in the intro about what he has this time that he didn't have last time but one thing that you didn't mention that he has more than any other candidate is the enthusiasm of a core group of supporters? Who would never support anybody else but him when he did pretty well here in Twenty Sixteen Chris he had a ragtag campaign. Not Run by political pros. You put the Organization of the. Has THIS TIME RUN BY POLITICAL PROS? Two hundred fifty people on the ground way more than any other candidate tapping into that enthusiasm which by the way as you mentioned. Iran in two thousand sixteen. He's got the name recognition. A lot of those same people are even more enthusiastic this time right and so you tap into that. I don't think it's that surprising that he did so well. Plus there is the brilliant way that he tapped into the Latino vote here which which Jedi Medina and others have written about. And I think that's a prescription for a blowout win. Which is what he got. Yeah Jennifer piece in the Times was Great Ida Chavez at the intercept broke something along the same lines about the sort of organizing effort among Latino constituents what was sort of program there that in the first sort of genuinely divers multicultural electorate in this calendar. They were able to do so well. The main thing that they did so well was to get out early and to get how often they opened an office in East Las Vegas months before others did and many voters that I talked to said that they were the only campaign the sanders campaign was the only campaign they had ever heard from so they had they were reaching out to people. They were organizing soccer tournaments. They were going to high schools and they were doing things that some democratic operatives had been urging campaigns to do for years but hadn't actually happened before so it wasn't some sort of magical thing it was just going out and talking to people in the communities that they live in. You know it's an interesting thing. John the ways that these early states test different kinds of abilities to campaign and that may or may not transfer to national campaigns. Where you gotta run a whole bunch of states with a lot of money but one of the things is has tested this sort of organizing capacity and also sort of outreach in the ability to do that in that respect I think the three early states this was the most impressive showing from the sanders campaign. I think so. And that's almost I know you're throwing me off all the talk about how Nevada should be the and is the most important state but also it happens to be true and what Jenny said is definitely true about how we got here early. They had a real strategy in terms of the coalition that they were going to build a multi-racial coalition. And if you look at those entrance polls and they can be flawed but they appear to be right this time about how. Well he did with the Latino vote and even with the black vote as well not losing by that much to Joe Biden and the fact is that it's not he's not running against one well-known candidate this time and so the Anti Bernie or the Non Bernie vote is being diffused right among other candidates so he benefits from that too. And that's partly why Chris as you and you use the right term. There's this freak out going on among us some establishment Democrats because they see what's happening and they want candidates to get out of the race right so they can coalesce the Non Bernie vote. Although I'm not sure if you look at the math that adds up because a lot of the second choices of the other people supporting other candidates are sanders which is one of the things that Jennifer that I thought was interesting. The entrance polls right that that Sanders wins moderates and self-described Moderates and Conservatives and he wins Latino voters by quite a bit he also wins some of the big caucus. The Culinary Union has in the hotels and they had kind of gone out of their way to not endorse a candidate to take some shots at him for Medicare for all and yet. They seem to have some campaigns significant support among the actual rank and file. Absolutely I mean to me that was one of the most interesting subplots of the Nevada Caucus. Which is that the Culinary Union which is the largest and most powerful union in the state and a huge player in democratic? Politics made no secret of its disdain for Sanders over Medicare for all. They have a really good healthcare plan and the the leadership really wants to keep it but I spoke to many many Culinary Union members the rank and file who said that they were with sanders regardless of what the leadership was telling them. And you saw that play out. I saw that play out in early voting at the Culinary Union Hall itself and then of course at the sights on the Strip where you had people showing up in red culinary insurance voting for Bernie Sanders very person. The leadership had told them not to vote for John. Do you think Harry Reid is called for the to get rid of caucuses? He's also called for Nevada to be first in the nation. What do you think the future of this state particularly this crucial moment as you look at? What the Democrat. Coalition is in two thousand twenty th so important to understand that there's two coalitions in American life and like one of them is genuinely multiracial. The other really barely is that this state seems to say in some ways a lot more than maybe some of the traditional early states. I think Harry Reid Chris and other Democrats here are really worried about the early state status that read achieved when he was at the summit of his power for us in two thousand and eight is really in jeopardy. Not just because of the caucus but because the Democrats wanted to shake things want to shake things up next time but you know people still have this view of Nevada as being this Quirky Weird State with casinos and brothels and all the rest of it all. That's true Chris. We're also the way that Las Vegas has evolved. We are very diverse cosmopolitan city with with with a quarter of the population being Latino and then ten percent each or so with black and the Asian vote which is become more and more popular. We do look more like America than a lot of different places. Do it would make sense for us to go I. I'm not just doing this because I am a partisan for Nevada. I do think it actually makes some sense but I do think read made that announcement followed today by the chairman of the Democratic Party. Were done with caucuses. It's as if to say to the DNC. Please please let us keep steady state. Says we'll do it right next time. All Right John Ralston Jennifer Medina. Thank you both really appreciate it. Thank you joining now. Fetchacure the campaign manager for Senator Bernie Sanders. I want to start on this The sort of how you conceive of what lessons you learn from the last time around particularly making inroads among populations and demographics and parts of the Democratic Coalition that frankly centers had a hard time with last time. But that could be a very long conversation with Chris. I'm but I'll start with a few one is obviously you have a candidate ran before but I think there's still some building out who Bernie Sanders is for a lot of people. Think this is somebody who's life experiences. We're not even still fully known to everyone somebody who's fought racial justice and really wanted to campaign that reflected that diversity so we certainly accomplished that and feel good about the composition of this staff and who we fight for and how we represent them but in addition to that operationally. You're talking about a movement right. Chris I've been in these spaces you're trying to basically take movement and confided into the trappings of a presidential campaign which often comes with discipline and message and all those things that movement agitators sometimes go against. So you're trying to kind of blend the two which from my perspective as a campaign manager you try to harness what is the best of a movement while operationally trying to make sure that you're executing it presidential campaign which I think hopefully we're doing decently well so far but we haven't yet accomplish what we came for. No and it's it's early. I like I said in the intro. Like people have a tendency to take whatever happened that day in the campaign and projected forward at..

"At the heart the civil rights movement from NPR white lies. Listen and subscribe, now, this is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson. We are speaking with Senator Bernie Sanders, also a candidate for the democratic presidential nomination. You have sent in plenty of great questions. I'm gonna get to as many as we. Can before we have to shift gears and I will take moderators progress to ask the last one. But let's dive into some of your questions. Now, let's see Heather tweeted what common sense gun laws will he support to end gun violence in America? Okay. Well, thank you for that question. How the this is an issue that has on the mind thunder of so many adult Americans but whole lot of kids who are increasingly nervous, when they walk into a school, so his some of what you gotta do, which is kind of commonsense stuff. Number one gotta have the guts to take on the RA. And that's something I've been doing for a very, very long time. And by the way, I think the American people are catching onto what the NRA really is second of all you have to expand background checks. It is not a rocket science suggests that somebody who has who should not own a gun. Somebody was mentally unstable. Somebody was guilty of domestic violence or the crimes should not own a gun. A number three, you got to get rid of the so called gun show loopholes, which allows a whole lot of people in this country to avoid a getting a background check by buying their gun at a gun show. You gotta do away with the so-called straw, man provision, which allows you legally to walk into a gun store today. You can leave. Really do that. In by dozen guns, you can then sell those guns to people in gangs, or drug dealers, or whatever got to eliminate that is well, and there are a number of other things that we have to also for many, many years now for, like thirty s I have believed that assault weapons of weapons military weapons, I designed to kill people as rapidly as possible few years ago in Las Vegas. We saw what, what is about? I do not think that those country be sold distributed in the United States, the civilian population. So the other thing that we have to do is understand that you got a lot of people who emotionally disturbed today in this country, walking the streets, who cannot get the help that they need. And we have to make sure that people in the United States, get mental health counseling. They need when they need. So they don't do destructive acts or self destructive cells as some of the things we should be doing carrying on Facebook page would really like to hear his thoughts on women's reproductive rights are under attack and another listener tweeden. Considering the current assault on women's reproductive rights and freedoms, the Senator Sanders support and will he push for ratification of the equal rights amendment and of course, by way of context. Alabama's governor signed into law, the most restrictive abortion law in the nation, which could send doctors to prison for performing abortions. Well, let me very briefly Karen, yes, I do support equal rights amendment..

"But I think if we can ring the American people together and a lot of Republicans who support this and stand up and demand that we do what every other major country on earth those guarantee healthcare to all people. We will win this fight now a Ron s Ron asked the question. I think it was or about a magic about the taxi Matthew. I'm sorry. Good question how you pay for it while we saw off by understanding? And asking about how do we pay for health care right now? And as I mentioned a moment ago right now, we are spending twice as much as neighbors in Canada. And our friends in Europe spending, they managed to cover health care for all people. And the reason that they can do that is they do not have what we have is a huge complex in wasteful bureaucracy within the healthcare system, which waste hundreds of billions of dollars a year, a meta Cording to variety of studies, even from some conservative think tanks Medicare for all will end up being less expensive than the current system we have right now, there are some projections right now that than in a ten year period, we will end up spending fifty trillion dollars a year on healthcare, unsustainable and Medicare for all will be less expensive because we eliminate the profiteering of the insurance companies and the drug companies we lower. Drug prices by about fifty percent. And we do away with all of the administrative wastes, in terms of building and the entire bureaucracy around billing, and administrative costs, which are about five hundred billion dollars a year. The how would they were here in terms of taxes? I mean, I, I hear you go eliminating administrative waste. But that's you know, it's, it's it seems like we either pay it as you know, health care as insured people just do the cost of care, or we pay it in tax dollars. Glossed of be talk. You're right. How do they compare? Well, they were there is that ninety five percent of the people will in all likelihood under our plan. Pay less for healthcare. We will eliminate premiums. You're not gonna panic premiums. Your employer is not gonna play premiums. We're going to eliminate deductibles and co payments. We're going to expand benefits we are going to pay for that. And that's something that we're going to be discussing with. And I it's a complicated issue there different points of view is that how you pay for it. But one of the. Ideas that we were brought for what is a seven percent,.

"Can't afford prescription drugs, or they're terribly worried about the criminal Justice system, which is largely racists or the right of women to control her own body, and you sit here, and it's another world entirely, so maybe the profound separation of the reality impacting American, the American people. And what goes on in here? That is something you have to see to believe let's dive into some questions from our audience. Glad you brought up medicine because we are healthcare because we got a number of questions about Medicare for all. Let me read two of them, Ron wrote on our Facebook page, do you seriously believe that you can dismantle the entire medical insurance infrastructure in the United States and replace it with Medicare for all? I'd love to see that, but I'm pretty certain it will never ever actually happen. And Matthew tweeted how do you plan to pay? For Medicare for all. What's the expected tax increase for the everyday American to implement something like this Senator questions, let me slow with Ron's question. And, and run says, how can we do this? And I think the implication of Ron's question is, look, we're going to have to take on the pharmaceutical industry, which has unlimited amounts of money and power an industry, which made sixty nine billion dollars, the top ten companies made sixty nine billion dollars profit last year Joshua while. One out of five Americans cannot he threw for the medicine that the doctors prescribed. That's crazy. These guys have unlimited amounts of money. They're gonna put it into lobbing put into campaign contributions insurance industry top five insurance companies they.
