      chill will i am all for bernie 2020, but i think that we need to hear beto out. he’s an underrated candidate who’s captured my attention after this debate.

      furthermore, if bernie were to win the presidency (which i have high confidence he would if given the nomination) we must keep in mind that vermont does have a republican governor which means a republican appointee senator. this only makes it harder to pass meaningful legislation:/

  5. Feel the bern……..MSNBC….

    Let’s get realz, it’s not about the the Bills. The HealthCare, Immigration and Grean Deal Bills of the candidates…can easily be shot-down by the House and Senate. Their votes, and even decision to whether or not vote on it, is what determines a Bills life or death.

    That’s why most of the debate you possibly watched, barely gave us a chance to see the important criteria that’s needed within a President. My top 3:

    1. The ability to Unite
    2. A strong back-bone that can fight for what’s right.
    3. Calm, confident, humble, respectful and open-minded conversation skills. (The worlds most amazing invention and most difficult thing for someone to be truly badass at…communication)

    Take care everyone 👍

      Time2RiseUp 2019 but if you watch interviews like this you’re able to see beto fits all three of those criteria.

      i read a “winners” and “losers” article after tonight’s debate that had beto listed as a loser because he (at times) faded away and seemed “nonexistent” which i found to be incredibly stupid and ignorant seeing as CNN gave a ridiculous amount of time to congressman delaney, and beto chose to respect CNN’s rules and not interrupt others when they’re speaking.

      just some food for thought. i think that beto is an extremely underrated candidate and really is one of the only ones up there that could reach across the isle and pass meaningful legislation through a congress which has infamously been know for partisan politics.

      @Joseph Goodsell Mayor Pete and Harris, in my opinion, are stronger candidates than Biden. If Williamson had some military experience and was a congresswoman…she’d be a very strong candidate. She also impressed/intrigued me the most in last nights debate. I like Bullocks head-strong belief that corporate corruption is public enemy number 1…although the public itself is most likely our own worst enemy.

    Yeah that’s because of demographics.

    • Joseph Goodsell | July 31, 2019 at 5:14 AM | Reply

      Christopher James no, if you look at RCP’s last 3 polls donald trump has been polling in the mid 30’s-40’s with millennials as well as 65+.

    • Christopher James | July 31, 2019 at 6:36 AM | Reply

      Joseph Goodsell It’s demographics. And yeah you’re partly right. But when it comes to voting day, there’s more republicans in Texas(at the moment)

    Chris Matthews attacks on Bernie Sanders were completely unprofessional. MSNBC’s coverage of this whole election has been pure garbage.

    Stop asking Bernie the same stupid question, one he has answered many times. Yes middle class taxes will go up a with universal health care, nothing is free. Balance it, with no insurance payments, no criminally high cost of medicine and no cost for hospital treatments and doctor care. Long story short, stop the Republican talking point.

  10. There is a simple way to fund universal health care. The two in this video hit on it and glided away from it. Every single taxpayer “contributes” 6.2% of their “wages” to Social Security up to an income cap of ~133,000. Above that cap, the wealthy pay no more. Erase that cap and make the wealthy pay 6.2 of their entire “income.” and that pays for universal health care. Simply put, 6.2% of everything with zero deductions is more federal income than 62% of everything with deductions.

  11. Bet on my stork 🤷‍♂️ #Bernie2020.

  12. What bernie was talking about is that you’ll over all pay LESS.. No copays no deductibles.. No money lost in the system due to the greed of the insurance companies.

  13. Chris Matthews sticking the knife into Sanders when Bernie is not around to say “You’re wrong!!”.

  14. Bahahaha

    Same old talking rhetoric at Bernie. It’s old. What surprises me is once you understand the concept of higher taxes, less out of pocket expenses and better choices and care, why no one, even the companies who offer health care refuse to use their heads. The answer? The word taxes. It scares people and businesses. Once anyone hears that word, the fight is on. And no one can reason anymore. Businesses have to be competitive in benefit compensation in order to gain the best and brightest as employees. Each year they have to negotiate with insurance companies to fight for rates. Your employer pays out of pocket a portion of your premiums that you as an employee doesn’t see. Most companies pay half of your premium on average. Each year the total premium goes up. (Your payroll deduction per month and your employers contribution every month to keep your deductions as low as possible). Each year your premium rises and your coverage lessons, your annual deductible increases, and your employers contribution increases as well. Companies hire benefit administrators full time all over the country to negate those costs, but the privatized insurance industry keeps getting richer. This shouldn’t be rocket science folks. Your company and you pay more in taxes. Your employer now doesn’t have to negotiate premiums and tell their workforce your paying more this year for less coverage, but we did what we could. You don’t have to worry about getting the medical care you need because that facility isn’t in the network. I could go on and on. It’s time to fight privatized insurance companies and get on board that health care should be a right for all of us. BUT TAXES AND I REFUSE TO PAY MORE TAXES.

      Socialism/Communism are failed models .. they are great at producing mass poverty and mass murders.. historically.

  16. Mr. Hard ball(Christ) why are you pushing against medicare for all!
    I think you are too old to rep, the people of America.!!!

    Chris Matthews should try to hide his disdain for Medicare For All. Doesn’t make for good journalism

    That unions want to keep the corporate health insurance “they fought for” is the stupidest argument I’ve heard them come up with yet!

    As a Texan I can’t wait to vote, and get maybe 20 people who don’t usually vote, to get out and vote in the primaries. Beto is so deluded, and those polls will be proven wrong. #BERNIE2020

    Look out, Mr Trump ! Beto is coming for you.
