  1. America is the worst place on the planet you could be during this pandemic

    Bernie had it all: Plans for healthcare, education, inmigration, social justice, etc. And yet once again he has been cheated by those who are complacent with the power they hold, and they were aware that if bernie was the nominee, all their perks would be taken away.

    • This is the most blatant good ol boy situation. Deeply disturbing. ANd he knows it. He knows we are doomed. God love Bernie!

    • @Daniell Watson Younger voters who still do not understand how a delegate based party system works .
      They claim to support Sanders ,
      Then they spit in his face !!? ??
      Duhhhhh ?
      Instead of giving him the Power of being a Senator.
      not just a mouth piece under Mitch the Turtles thumb .

    • To many Sanders Supporters turn around & spit in Bernie’s face instead of helping him.

      Looks like Bernie may have control of the Senate if we vote .
      ” Na I’ll stay home or write him in . Huh WTF ???
      Duhhhhh .?????
      Your not Sanders Supporters
      Your part of the problem ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Good Job voting for the GOP & Trump .
      Dummies !!!

    • @Conspiracynutsmakemechuckle outloud Biden is going to pick Liz Warren !
      A great progresive leader !

    If this had happened a year earlier Bernie would be sailing away with the nomination.

      Angel mendoza I believe we are being tested and I also believe a new America will rise from the ashes. How do I know? Because of brave people like you. Safe passage my friend and thank you ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโœŒ๏ธ

    • @Angel mendoza thank you for your service and I agree

    • Ramiro Rodriguez I donโ€™t think so. The most recent primary, the Wisconsin primary, took place on April 7th, a month after the first reported corona case in the US and Joe Biden got 62.8% of votes, Bernie Sanders only got 32% of votes.

  4. Bernie knocking some truth into everyone.

    People seem to forget that a good many low income workers are pensioners that have to work in order to afford medications…and they are the most at risk..but then we’re just expendable trash past our expiration date…disgusting blob of evil running the country..let’s see how karma handles things…

      @Teresa S We were on our way towards such with the A.C.A. but the greed of the G.O.P. and the spinelessness of the D.N.C. put a stop to it.

      God Bless Trump. America is fortunate to have our strong leader during the China Virus. Imagine an Alzheimer’s patient who can’t speak at all, spinning round and round, and round smiling broadly in the ‘Oval Office Big Chair’.like a 3 year old. Yeah that’s just one difference.

      @thom wessels wow ….you are as sick as Trump

    • @thom wessels A common sign of a weak character on YouTube is the guy who gives himself a ๐Ÿ‘. And one more thing: the stupid don’t understand that they’re stupid – they know no other state. In this they resemble the senile.

    • Leonie Romanes | May 10, 2020 at 9:04 PM | Reply

      @A L I will take trump light over full strength, undiluted trump any day. At least Biden hasn’t told the US to inject themselves with disinfectant. Lol.

    • @Dionysus you would vote for trump? wow he has a good chance of losing. all of 2018 his numbers never changed but all he has is his cult. maybe a little over a week ago his # bumped up? they said because he was doing a good job with the virus? WHAT? he sabotage his own country.. wait until all this comes out. fri he told hospitals to lie & lower the death rate every day.
      and this who you would vote for? WAIT until they all hear this. how low can a person go? about as low as trump. i lived in N Y when he lived there & he is a LOW LIFE & N Y wants trump bad. N Y is going after trump, his family & his business. wow imagine all they will fine because his 3 children are as bad as he is & so is his son in law. his son in law father served time in prison for many cases of fraud. all runs in the family. if trump wins he will be a full time didctator. i have said for MANY months he is a dictator so glad people finallt found that out. he will never leave the W H. he plans on his children takeing over as dictator when he dies. does he really think we will sit here for years & let this happen? it will not happen. i want to see him come out feet first out of the w h. go ahead & make my day trump.

    • @Leonie Romanes true, but he did mention that kids should listen to the record players. Although back in 08 he called for the wall.

    • But a paper bag does also so it’s a low bar. That said, Mr Bernie IS indeed a leader. How I wish he was still running. He’s hammer the A Hole!

  7. Here in PA we havenโ€™t been tested, I donโ€™t know anyone who has. I donโ€™t know anyone who knows someone who has. STILL NO TESTING. And yeah they are winding down pandemic team. The stimulus was barely enough to catch up let alone stimulate economy

      They tested my daughter she had strept throat and was pretty positive she didnt have covid but tested her as a precaution anyways I’m in Lancaster (and no I’m not rich or even close to middle class) but as a whole definitely seems we are slacking.

    • Crystal Telf | May 10, 2020 at 1:10 AM | Reply

      Don’t know anyone who has been tested…now we know trump hoarded all the tests…that were unnecessary! Yes we need more stimulus to live!

    • Colin Kepple | May 10, 2020 at 3:19 AM | Reply

      It is almost as if there is a ‘grand plan’ to wipe out the elderly and the slum-dwellers, to benefit the tax-payers.

    • From PA also, I donโ€™t no anyone who has been tested either. Why does Trump and all his disciples get test constantly? He is all for himself, not for the people!

  8. The GOP: That’s it, that’s all we’re going to do.
    Americans: That’s correct.

      @Vibeke Carstensen well the taxpayer will have to go to work before they can do that. Do you realize how amazingly, tremendously stupid it is to give every American 2000.00 a month whether they need it or not? My family for example is not rich but we do ok and have been blessed not to have missed a paycheck. It is stupid to send us a check for 4000.00 for nothing! I have a child who is a teacher, also has not missed a paycheck and is doing fine, yet with kids included would receive an additional 6000.00 a month for nothing! Help people who need help, who have lost jobs, but this other miss is pure idiocy!

      Because your so called leader is supposed to do that!blame this all on don the con!

    • Lisa C. Humble spot on,everybody with a voice should be speaking out,and loudly, the mishandling of this crisis is such a disgrace.

  10. I voted for this man, Bernie Sanders in the primary and sent many supporting contributions. The Democratic elite didn’t want what Sanders had to bring to the table. Nooo. They wanted mainstream and nominated a person that isn’t up to winning an election. I am happy to see Mr. Sanders is still out and about. Maybe he could win on a write in ballot.

    • Millions have to do it to work, @Josie Tetreault. Otherwise the votes will be lost to Trumpski. We have to start a movement.

      Jim Burig agreed!!!

    • In order for that to work, @Josie Tetreault, millions would have to do it. otherwise the votes would be lost to Trumpski. We need to start a movement for this to happen.

    • Real Time Biblical Interpretation | May 10, 2020 at 10:25 PM | Reply

      Yeah I know. But all is not lost. The time has come for universal health care and I hope in the Senate Bernie can help to bring this to fruition

    • Thank you, @Real Time Biblical Interpretation. I really appreciate your upbeat feedback.

  11. I am Swedish and I just watched sen. Sanders to propagate that every American should be able to visit a hospital and get medical care without having to pay any significant amount of money for that.

    It still amazes and shocks me more than ever that a highly industrialized and technologically advanced country like the U.S. still has such a problem.

    • What is amazing and shocking is that 40% of the country think free health care is communism. They WANT to pay $???/month for dodgy insurance. Still, there is deductibles, copay, and out of network fees. Lose your job, lose your healthcare, or pay through the nose. This, in the richest country in the world. Some strange priorities indeed.

    • It is heartbreaking to think of the families suffering in the US.

    • @Joe Strat One of the many differences with America compared to other industrialized nations is that the US Neve sustained any mass casualties of civilians during World War II. For example, the United Kingdom was ruled by Conservatives and had very limited healthcare for ordinary people until after the war. With so many wounded from the fighting, the war at sea and the prolonged bombing of British cities, so many were injured and regardless of their economic and social standing. It was easily discovered that the private sector and not the least private insurance companies could not cope with the costs and trying the insurance claims for every individual would cost more than the financial gain. Also, a refusal to provide healthcare for all would be detrimental to the British economy and its rebuilding from the ashes of the war.

      Similar conclusions were drawn across the continent from Germany to Italy, France, Greece, and so on. Japan drew the same conclusion.

      But America being protected by its seas and long distance from the theaters of war did not draw the same conclusions. As the US economy dominated every other nation on earth, it was thought that economic growth alone would enable good healthcare for all, but that never materialized.

      Now, during an “attack” by the coronavirus, the true inefficiencies of a healthcare system mostly relying on jobs and market prices are cruelly shown to everyone. Plus, poor and unemployed people who can’t afford healthcare will spread the virus to others.

      Now, if ever, should it have become abundantly clear that free healthcare is in the interest of everyone except for some within the rich elite.

      @Thabo Muso No such thing as free healthcare we in England pay NI contributions as well as taxes and VAT on goods,and council tax…this illusion that healthcare is free is absurd all tax payers pay towards the health care system,and Americans were fattened up with junk food so they get plenty illnesses due to their poor diets which the Private Hospitals make most of their income from and the bad air,processed food also is why we have way more people with cancer now then ever before…but people being as stupid as they are,thought they was living the high life with all this junk food,big cars that cause so much pollution..people are playing right into the hands of the current health care system..

    • @cheetah8667 well you British surely pay taxes for your healthcare, just as we do in Sweden. No need to get so aggravated.ย 

      The common, although disputable definition of “free healthcare” is that it is financed through public authorities.

      @lauren vega-cruz Lauren, please do not do anything to yourself. I don’t know what your situation is, but as a suicide survivor, I can tell you there is hope and beauty to life after the storm. What is happening in our country right now is almost unbearable but this storm will past too. Keep putting your loved ones at the forefront of your thoughts. They love and need you in their lives. Please reach out to a trusted friend or family member for support. Right now it is especially difficult to find a mental health professional to work through things with, but not impossible. Perhaps a support person can help you find a professional to work with. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You matter to more people than you even know. You matter to me ! I have had tears in my eyes just trying to write this reply. I understand your pain, I really do. I will be praying for you. God Bless You sister.

      @Aeleks Johnson Well, as a fellow country woman, I’m glad they’re so many people I can beg for money in a couple of months, and I have no clue if I’ll have health care next year if I’m unable to pay my fees. It’s the old comfort zone clientele politics here, plan your summer vacation, and buy a new car (again), not a national Marshall Plan, we will become visible eventually, enjoy.

    • @chevy vett You misspelled “communist.” Australia is a communist country. That’s why they’re getting free money, which breaks the laws of nature and will soon lead to total collapse. If Australians were allowed to carry loaded firearms in public, they might have a chance against coronavirus, but with their current socialist system, their country is about to cease its existence.

    I think its a misunderstanding, on so many levels, that the US is ‘richest’ country of the world.

      @Edward Miessner Your absolutely right that the US is OR will become a third world country. To me its also impossible to have a FAIR democracy when you only have two parties.

    • Interesting too that our health care system has resulted in the US being just slightly ahead of Cuba (which has Universal Healthcare for its people) in life expectancy, according to the US government.

  16. You are seeing, very clearly, the fragility, the lack of “depth” in the US economy, the largest proportion of the money is circulating in a very ‘thin layer’ in the top 0.1% of the population. When a disaster hits, as now, there is NO resilience in the population at large, as most people live month to month, paycheck to paycheck, and the credit card companies sucking 15x the current interest rate from those same people…

    We should be turning to Bernie for everything during this pandemic! Heโ€™s our voice of reason. Trump and Biden are stooges

      Boo hoo. FALSE EQUIVALENCE-bot. Tired troping.

    • @Carolyn Westlake America has a SEVERE problem with misinformation and astroturfing. Half the people in the country are convinced Bernie wants to take all their money away.

    • corrupt to the core. God help us

    • Why would Democrats nominate a Socialist? He needs to run for the Socialist party.

  19. Bernie Sanders, You have never been more correct… TRUMP is a murderer…Arrest TRUMP… I am so sorry for your loss and your fellow Americans. Lots of love from Australia.

  20. If you vote for ANY Republican this November you are PART OF THE PROBLEM
