Biden’s Top Running-Mate Contenders Emerge as He Enters Key Week
"So here's the thing with Biden's process. NBC reported that he is supposed to meet with all of these potential picks this week by midweek and judging counting on my fingers, let's see mid week that would be tomorrow. So if you're going to meet by midweek that's tomorrow. Hump Day. Kamala Harris, Karen Bass are two of the front runners Susan Rice. She's 100 front runner and then Additionally, NBC says Congresswoman Val Demings from Florida is under consideration. And Senator Elizabeth Warren. But there right now considered the also rans that he is in a position right now where he's thinking Kamala Harris, Karen Bass or Susan Rice for his top three Now, This is pretty interesting, because one we were familiar with Susan Rice. She's you know, a neo con, deeply conventional person in Washington D C very much to return to the status quo. She's very Lying comes very easily to her. She's been doing it for years. She doesn't mind doing it to the American public s o. She would do whatever it is that the Biden campaign needs and restore the status quo to Washington, which everyone's really amped up for. It can't wait to get back to the old days on. That's what Susan Rice would represent. And then there's Kamala Harris, who, for whatever reason, is under consideration in the midst of this giant conversation around police and law enforcement injustice. They decided to go for a prosecutor who treated people deeply unfairly left exonerating evidence off the table that would have helped people on death row in prison people for marijuana usage and then later laughed about her own marijuana usage, flaming hypocrite in all of those ways, so she's out there, both of them rather well known, but there's 1/3 person. And it's congresswoman, Karen Bass from California, and she is one of the least scrutinized people at the national level in all of American politics. And for that reason, Boy, have you noticed how many stories and headlines have popped up in the last few days about her past and about what she has said and done.

Joe Biden's Potential Running Mate: Who Is Karen Bass?
"Campaign Campaign 2020. 2020. We We don't don't have have long long to to wait wait for for Joe Joe Biden Biden to to announce announce his his running running mate. mate. It's It's expected expected to to happen happen next next week. week. As As the the list list is is narrowed. narrowed. California California Democratic Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass is considered a key contender. She's 66 chairs the Congressional Black Caucus. We talk about Bass with Washington Post political analyst and data columnist David Beiler, who has continued his Siri's looking at various potential Biden. Runningmate. Karen Bass would be governing choice rather than election choice. You know, she's a representative from California, California is not exactly a swing state so she doesn't have exactly those advantages. But her advantages would really come into play. Actually, when buying is in office so fast is widely known as someone who is a compromiser who sort of an incrementalist, not someone who is necessarily a purist, which really sets with Biden's governing style. He talks a lot about wanting to negotiate and compromise with the Republicans as much as possible. She is the head of the Congressional Black Caucus. On DSO. Dominating paths would be a real nod to multiple different groups that have been important to the buying campaign. There's black women who are the most Democratic demographic group in the country. There are black congressional leaders like Jim Clyburn, who helped revive Biden's campaign when it was really on the ropes in late February of this year. Andi. She's someone who I think you've seen in recent interviews has some instincts that are a little bit Biden esque When asked about the defund the police slogan she sort of did to step that. I think you reminded me. A fine one was to say, I don't like defund the police as a slogan, which is smart because that collection of words does not pull well. At the same time, we're sort of able to say they're these elements of the plans that I support. And those are elements of the plans that her constituents like so she kind of has a lot of stylistic things and a lot of talents and abilities that I think makes her sort of governing pick if you well, you alluded to this about the fact that she's from California, and you're not gonna get a Republican victory in California at least on this level. Is that the one downside to abiding bass ticket or are there others? I think the other downside is that the vetting Been relatively minimal compared to some of the other candidates. Now, Obviously, the buying campaign is doing their own betting with every candidate right now, and you know, putting him through the paces and seeing if there's something going on That they wouldn't want on their ticket. But Bass within the last couple months has come under fire for remarks where she called Fidel Castro commandant and Hef and sort of had a tone that lot of other people. Democrats from Florida in particular did not appreciate so the question with passes. Is there more baggage? When you look at someone like Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren? They've already been through the wringer and a presidential primary. Susan Rice has already gone through a Senate confirmation hearing. So the question with bass is also just Is there anything that you don't know that might be harmful, and the answer might be know that by knows everything and that there's nothing else there. But You know, there's some amount of risk in a pick that hasn't been in the public eye so much. David Beiler, political analysts and data columnist for The Washington Post, joining us on Skype.

"Just introduced a new bill and tells you everything you need to know about him and Democrats Racial and Economic Equity Act would require the Federal Reserve to enforce quotas throughout the entire US economy. Now under this act The feds would have to devise policies to minimize and eliminate racial disparities in employment, wages and wealth. The Fed will also have to prevent disparities and access to affordable credit. Now the Senate sponsors of this race based monstrosity are Elizabeth Warren Folk, a hospice and Kirsten Gillibrand in the House. The bill is sponsored by Maxine Waters. Now, instead of dealing with the nation's money supply, keeping watch on inflation, interest rates and old at the Federal Reserve would be transformed into an all powerful Social Justice enforcement agency. Using racial fairness is a cover. Democrats want to give the Fed a new mission to force banks and financial markets to adopt the radical left socialist agenda. They want centralized control over the economy without checks and balances from Congress. Or the executive branch. Right now, The bill won't get past the Republican Senate or President Trump. But if the Democrats regain power, the enactment of this thing could be a virtual certainty. This is all out and out Marxism. It's anti free market, It would mean the end of American prosperity. That's why Democrats love it. That's why they wanted more rush..
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get.

These are really difficult crazy stressful times, and if you're trying to sort of cope, it could be helpful to find something that gets beyond like doom scrolling and like obsessive worried. But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world.

You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

The Consumer Financial Protection Provisions Collapses in the Way Elizabeth Warren wanted. It's structured and interestingly enough. That is John Roberts. Giving a big conservative win in theory, but has actually small ball now. How is that well? Conservatives had advanced the case on separation of powers in a unitary executive, and Roberts has conceded all of that in his decision on this. But at the end of the day it's not the wind. Conservatives wanted conservatives one of the win on the on the abortion clinic

I noticed Senator Warren years ago I think it was around twenty twelve. I happen to be reading the paper one morning and I noticed that A CONGRESSMAN NAMED TODD. Aken had said a horrible thing about women and pregnancy. Saying that if a woman were to get pregnant as a result of rape then her body has a way of getting rid of that it seems to be first of all from what I understand from doctors. That's really rare.

I was flabbergasted and I said to my husband who is that woman. There was at the same time I was not happy. With Scott Brown. Who was a senator? At the time he doesn't stand up for women's reproductive rights and economic security he co sponsored legislation to let employers deny women coverage for birth control or even mammograms.

It was so exciting. I still say that without crying. It was so exciting so then in two thousand sixteen I was for Hillary Hillary. I was very invested in having Hillary be president and she had all the qualifications she had. She was more qualified than anybody ever been president in my opinion but because she was a woman. I knew it would be difficult but I still thought she could win. Did you know people are? Did you hear people say I won't vote for Clinton because she's not like that but he is what I did here. I was talking to a woman who was kind of a stranger. But we were chatting and We were talking about politics and about how how we feel about certain things so I guess it was like immigration climate change and things like that and this woman was on board with all of the democratic ideals and then I mentioned Hillary Clinton and she said Oh I hate her and I said really because she's the one who stands for all of these things that we're talking about now no constand. I said well why. Why don't you like her up? I have no idea I said is it. Because she's an aggressive woman she too aggressive and she too loud does she.

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

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

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

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

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

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

"We're back we will we ever gone. These are episode logical questions in two thousand eight still while still teaching being at Harvard. Elizabeth Warren met Barack Obama for the worst time rock accidentally punched him in the face. It was horrible now for the first time time now. This was at a fundraiser. WHO's actually One of BRAC Obama's very first out of state fundraisers for his Senate Campaign The fundraiser have been put together by professor.

Warren and I had told Barack that she was coming and he was very excited because he'd been working on predatory lending in the Illinois the state Senate and so when Elizabeth came took her over to meet Barack. And here's how Warren recalled meeting going In Two thousand eleven quote he holds his hand out. That's just like this is just like in the movies. And I as I hold my hand out and as our fingers touch she says to me predatory lending and then he just goes and I never get a word in. I never get a word in. And I'm just standing there. My hands still in his hand and he's talking finally gets all the way to the end and he gets this big grin and he says well and I say you had me at predatory lending. I don't think that.

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

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

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

"But as always after the primary, I will vote for whoever it is even if it's Joe fricken Biden, I am not. I am really hoping it's not going to be him. Absolutely. Am not supporting him in the in the primary, but whoever whatever democrat, I don't. It might be a socialist. That's again, I all I care about is the country being better. I don't care about like, oh, you didn't choose my candidate of Elizabeth warrants. I'm not gonna vote. I'm gonna. Let Trump president ruin lives, ruined millions. People's lives because I'm mad that my favorite can't. It wasn't chosen. No, I don't care if it's an outright socialists or something that I mean again, I kinda liked that, but whoever I'm trying to think of the example, whatever, whatever liberal it is and Biden would be one of them. I'm not rooting for Biden in any way, shape or form. But if he's the, he's the guy, then I will be voting for him in the general. So. All right. Let me know. I feel about this again. I absolutely mean no disrespect to any native American tribes. I fully think what Elizabeth Warren said is is valid that they determine their citizenship. I don't think anyone should be taking a test and utilizing some minor DNA result to say that your native American you shouldn't be doing that. Don't do that. I wouldn't do that, but I just think we're being all too fair to deal with more did. So that's my view. Oh, and then Finally, I wanted to bring up Aaron rabbi, of course, the philosophies in space said it really great. I. Think and this is just in in regard to the like, oh, you played into Trump's hand thing. That's, that's another thing people you. He played right into it and said, can everyone please clarify for me what the correct game is to play against the pigeon shitting on the board while thirty percent of the country laughs and calls that winning is that the Rousseau gambit. I really want to understand the move that all her detractors are sure would have worked better against the people who are lighting, the whole game store and fires we speak as I don't. It's so funny how man I, I really gotta get out here, but because it's been such a long episode, but it's people think that unless so in a battle with Trump's of, let's say there's one of these altercations which they're like with stormy Daniels, like with Elizabeth Warren. In this instance, it's almost as though people think if Trump doesn't immediately catch on fire or somehow quit the presidency that he that just means he want like whatever it is he want Elizabeth Warren see at backfired. Did it? What decides that? What? What determines that? The fact that he's still president? Yeah, we'll, he will still be present no matter what he's proven. He can say any number of stupid, factually inaccurate things. And then you can take the fact that he's still president and used that to say while I guess he was right about that. He knows. As planning a hell of a game? No, he's president because people keep him in office because he has Republicans protecting its, there's no game you can play as as Aaron. His capturing that really funny comment. There's nothing you can do that's going to ever heal trouble just stop. Oh, you're right. You got me. I apologize. No, he will never do that. There's nothing sh she didn't play into his hand or out of his hand or any combination of that. She, I think did something that I don't blame her for doing. Maybe you could argue strategically she should have done something else. I'm open to that argument, but I think that this will be a strong way to have the media not do a bunch of fifty fifty articles about her for two more years articles like, well, Trump claims that she's made it all up about our ancestry and she claims that she hasn't..
