  1. Somebody gonna get real hurt.
    Be careful Hayes your showing progressive on MSNBC the guys that are like
    “Be careful Bernie that’s too strong” Matthews-MSNBC(indeed my friend indeed Bernie is too strong)
    Did Chris laughed when Bernie said that he is taking it too easy on the wealthy class?

    Bernie can win this. I am surprised that they even gave him an interview though seeing how much they’ve been ignoring him.

    • This anchor gives the platform.

    • Chris Hayes has been the most fair with Bernie. If anyone would have Bernie on, it would be Chris Hayes. He is quickly becoming my favorite MSNBC host. Not just because of this. But I find his discussion much more interesting than the others in primetime very often, and I think his Friday live format is terrific.

    • 2016 hayes was a chump though like the rest of them.

    • They’re tryna seem “fair” even tho we see thru their bs

    • Stealth Rated+  Just having Bernie on his show alone is an accomplishment–especially having him on and letting him express his point of view. Unless they are going to attack him or report something negative, the mainstream media generally ignores Bernie.

  3. Bernie giving free education to Buttigieg

  4. I doubt very many billionaires kids would need to go to a public college.

    • Ding ding ding!

    • Exactly!, Sanders should state that clearly next time this issues comes up.

    • How would they protect their investments without the proper education?

      @Paul Bernie doesn’t need to state it, because as you can see from this thread, everyone knows it already. This is just another strawman argument, being shoved in our faces by Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. But hey… if rich kids want to go to a public college for free, then that’s fine. Just so long as their rich daddy is paying more taxes, we’re happy.

    • @jack masri I don’t know if I’m answering your question, but most kids that come from economically privileged backgrounds go to “private” institutions, such as the Ivy League, as opposed to going to state colleges or trades and technical schools.

  5. #BERNIE2020
    + Green New Deal for All (the only candidate’s plan rated A+ by Green Peace)
    + Medicare for All
    + Medical Debt Forgiveness for All
    + Tuition-free Public Universities for All
    + Affordable Housing for All

    The ONLY way to make a society that does not betray the marginalized is to make a society that is not allowed to betray ANYONE!
    This is our one chance to elect a proven fighter for All. Keep your eyes on the prize!

  6. In civilized countries college and university has been free a long time.

    • @Tessmage Tessera Shhh. Don’t tell the Bernie puppets that. They’ll jump off the roof.

    • @Paul Heath he looks like us we like the ruppled look.

    • @Paul Heath They will do when any none republican gets elected. Remember they hated ghe center reichwing cuckservative in blue Barack Obama & called the self described “80’s style republican” a Socialist.

      Obama was no more socialist than Ronald Wilson Reagan.

  7. Bernie is the man

    • @Roger didit and …..The country is way too far right ……

    • @P A You can never be too far right. We side with police over criminals. But “too far” means criminal police over criminals, and WE STILL side with them. One innocent man dies on death row, while 99 get executed. We’re HAPPY with that. We side with the innocent unborn and not the slaughter by the foolish irresponsible.

    • @Roger didit am not talking to dumb people like you .. Go back to your mother womb and be kind to yourself .. … You got big emotional problem ….. Please do not answer

    • @P A I get it all the time from Bernie boobs. They are incapable of debate. They’re intellectual dwarfs that are convinced they know what’s best for our country, and the rest of us are stupid, and “just don’t understand” This senile old Bolshevik is the pied piper for a generation of Robin Hoods. The Democrat party desires only ONE objective, and that is POWER. That’s why they sabotaged Bernie in the last election. They KNEW he was a loser, and would NEVER be able to reach all democrats, much less independent and Republican votes which they needed. Even Hillary went down the toilet. Wait until we get Bolshevik Bernie under the microscope on the NATIONAL stage. Watch him crumple. Remember this… We will BATHE in your tears in 2020. Laugh now… Cry later.

  8. #Bernie2020

  9. If they are taxed for it (including millionaires), their kids should be able to go to public colleges and universities.

    • maybe you would get a stretch with Bernie and her being connected but I said opposite Bernie and trump are not connected and people in dem party are fake like Kamala and Biden maybe not Bloomberg but definetly not Tulse

    • @Paul Heath here’s your “progressives” after they con their way into power… Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have purchased a nearly 7,000-square-foot home on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts for $11.75 million, according to a report.

    • @Roger didit Thanks for replying Back, I can now see that you hold some misconceptions about Senator Sanders’s Plan

      1) M4A is not a reality, the US doesn’t have Universal Healthcare

      People shouldn’t be thrown out the hospital for not having Insurance.

      2) The Blue Collar Worker is not the one who shall be made to bear the weight of free college. The Common American Blue Collar Worker, is the one to benefit the most.

      Do you think Public Schools should be scrapped? Why did the Government decide to provide free Highschool? what’s the benefit of free school?

      A Nation Needs educated Citizens to make Productive Citizens, not only because the Citizens vote for the government but also to be able to compete on the Global economy.

      In today’s world, Highschool is not enough to give you a white picket fence, a family of 4 and a dog, a house and a car with international vacations.

      Now days BOTH parents have to go out to work, to make the amount a single parent did in the earlier generations.

      Nowadays, in today’s competitive economy you need a Bachelor’s degree atleast.

      As such, it is only logical, that the Right to Education be upheld and like it is with Free Libraries, Free K-12 and hopefully how it shall be with free Nationwide Broadband, that Colleges be made available to the financially unfortunate.

      The luck of which family you are born in and how much money you have should not decide your future.

      All Americans are Equal, and it is the job of the Government to make sure each citizen has the ability to achieve the American Dream.

      The govt. could do this tomorrow, without a single tax increase, tomorrow, if it wanted, the same way we burn mountains of money giving tax cuts to wealthy donors and corporations or in pointless wars.

      But nevertheless, it shall be funded via a Progressive Tax scheme that will make the Billionaires pay their fair share and hold corporation responsible, Amazon and Google shouldn’t be able to get away with paying $0 in taxes, due to fancy tax loopholes.

      and Rich fat cats should not pay $0 in taxes, by ensuring their income tax is $0

      This is why we need a Wealth Tax on the Uber Wealthy (this is not the common man) whereby Hoarded wealth is taxed, wealth that cannot be hidden from the IRS.

      And we need the Estate Tax back. and we shall Tax “gambling using shares” with a very tiny sliver that due to the sheer volume will pay for a LOT.

      I read the Two articles you sent me…. they’re Pro-Bernie, did you read them before sending them?

      Both talk about how the Washington Post lied and tried painting Senator Sanders in a bad light, I’ve known this bit from before.

      The WaPo had put out an article talking about how the US healthcare system sucks, Senator Sanders then used that WaPo article and the stats inside to make his case. Corporate not wanting Bernie to win (MSM as you call it) then attacked itself, i.e. WaPo wrote an article against the WaPo article that senator Sanders stated, because it was Inconvenient, while finally admitting under the bias that Senator Sanders was technically correct about the facts.

      The article you sent me talks about a failed hitjob…

      (this is regarding the Link you sent me)


      Back to your Original Question of here to draw the line (and that is a good question, we can’t build heaven on earth afterall)

      I would say the things enshrined as basic rights in the constitution should apply.

      i.e. Food, Housing Education, Speech and Healthcare

      So I would say that the Government has the mandate to ensure that every citizen has:

      ■ A good House (so free houses?)
      ■ Food (so food stamps/rations?)
      ■ Education ( Free Pre-K, Middle Schools, High School and College? And Free Internet/Broadband [10MBps]{The UK is planning to have once they elect Jeremy Corbyn or Like South Korea}, and Public Libraries. )
      ■ Speech ( Net Neutrality, and Free Broadband? Free Postal Service?)
      ■ Water ( Free Water?)

      These are the basics. If you’d like 20 Yachts a mansion in the mountains and a legion of personal maids and butlers, then that’s something you’d have to pay for on your own.

      I’d also have the Govt. make UBI ( not Yang’s FD but actual UBI) a right of American citizenship

      Thanks for taking the time to converse with me, I hope you a Good Day and would like to urge you further on your journey discovering Senator Sanders.

      Try reading up on his policy platform, compare it to Trump’s, check out some video lectures on Socialism by Prof Richard Wolff or things by Noam Chomsky.

      Try watching the JoeRogan interview with Senator Sanders and some of his other interviews and listen to some YouTube channels like:


      The Questions to ask yourself are these:

      1) Is America Perfect as it is or can it do better?

      2) If We can do better, Why aren’t we?

    • @Roger didit The US Doesn’t have Universal Healthcare, Only Senator Sanders supports Medicare For All.

      He is the ONLY person wanting to replace Obamacare with M4A.

      Trump only wants to remove Obamacare, and although he has eluded to wanting something similar to M4A or the UK’s NHS, he has NO plans to replace it with.

      SO Trump will remove Obamacare and then let people suffer.

      Now the Tory party in the UK (Boris Johnson, one of the fellows who laughed at Trump at Buckingham Palace along with other leaders) wants to privatize the NHS and sell it off to US Big Pharma in a deal with Trump and the US, post Brexit. (Biden ad, not a supporter, but meh, threw it in just for fun)

      His main opponent is the Socialist Labour Party, led by the UK’s Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn.

      The Labour Party built the UK’s NHS right after WW2, I see no reason why we can’t have M4A in the US.


  10. Go Bernie !!

  11. Bernie completely dismantled Mayor Pete’s talking points very succinctly

  12. Even Iran has FREE college!

  13. Love when Bernie talks like this. He should be this way in the debates.

    • It’s my biggest criticism of Bernie… Yes he doesn’t get called on enough but he sure could be more aggressive… Not his way I suppose

    • Thrasher Ali-ns | December 6, 2019 at 4:14 PM | Reply

      @Dylan Pattyn I think he gives the perfect amount of sass where its necessary. If he responded to every critism like Warren or did more direct attacks like tulsi, it would only hurt him. He needs to maintain his strategy. It’s been working well for him.
      As remained in top 3 since he announce. Most of that time spent in 2nd place. Emerging into 1st now. Has maintained or rised In polls and donations, volenteers, and continues to open offices.

      #SassyBernie is a treat.
      We can have a little bit of #SassyBernie. The rest of the time we need #RealTalkBernie.

    • Racer BR You get more time in a debate when you go after someone or someone goes after you.

  14. Bernie for the win.
    Pete for trump.

  15. If Pete is really against the rich, then he should introduce wealth tax.

    • If he is against the rich, he should not accept their money! Pete has 23 billionaires sponsporing him!
      Him preaching against universal free education with the rich rethoric is rich Hypocrisy at its highest!

  16. Warren and Pete backed away from medicare for all and Bernie is the only once cancelling all medical and student debt.
