    Will America join the rest of the civilized world and get Medicare for All? All it takes is to vote for it.

  2. 1st
    Please put Bernie and Liz on the same ticket, easiest win, best administration. IDC which is president.

    • LoL Pocahontas and the jew? They refused to say that MEDICARE FOR ALL INDEED WILL COST MORE TO THE TAXPAYERS.

    • @Jim Alley The DemWIT Cult begging for more free stuff that someone else pays for … guess Warren and her gang of fake Indians will dancing naked around a fire chanting prayers to their Lord and Saviors Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels … LOL

  3. Chris Matthews is a joke.

      @Treasonous Trump It only matters if the increase in taxes is less than the reduction in costs. That’s the point, and the question she refuses to answer. Someone who is intellectually honest would really be asking why she wouldn’t answer. So sorry he didn’t let her dodge the question, must be hard for you to fathom. And reality check, there is nothing that she can provide when examined by real financial experts that shows the costs would go down either. She’s dishonest on both fronts.

      @Matthew Hunter she DOES keep answering the question…both she and Bernie have explained it in great detail. Maybe you could have heard her express it better if he had QUIT interrupting

    • Treasonous Trump | July 31, 2019 at 11:54 AM | Reply

      @Matthew Hunter the whole point is that the increase in tax will be much less than the cost of healthcare. But the corporate dems and republicans only want the soundbyte so they can use just that part to mislead the public when the reality is overall costs for each family will be lower. She wasn’t giving them that soundbyte and she’s smart for that in this age of blatant misinformation.

      @Matthew Hunter last time I checked REAL reporters don’t keep interrupting so you have a chance to explain. Not that explaining anything has ever helped right wingers…you’d rather hear three syllable chants and vague promises to save you from the Boogy man. Too bad the Boogy man was playing you all along. Btw…better stock up on clean air and water as well as bullets, because he’s taking that away too so his corporate buddies can make a few more dollars…because a trillion a year profits aren’t enough!

    I dislike that old stupid man, Elizabeth should have said to him to shut up!

    • @Josef no silly. It means that it’ll become a civil matter not s criminal one.

    • @web angel Christ listen to what I said, once more for the dummies, it is not about what the costs are….it was about how it appeared!!!!

      She appeared to be avoiding the question, she was asked the same question several times and on each occasion she answered a question that wasn’t asked….instead of the question that she WAS asked…..
      When you are asked a question you MUST answer the question you are asked or you will look like you have something to hide….she had nothing to hide so why did she want to look like she did?
      I know what she was trying to say and I agree with her but all she had to say was yes, taxes will rise but you will be better off…..end of story and he would have gone on to another question, instead he kept asking the same question over and over again, he had her on the ropes, she had a chance to deliver a knockout punch and she let him knock her around,
      She is too good to make silly mistakes like that….how hard is that to understand????

    • @Henry Coy actually the dummies are the ones who fall for this spin.

      Could she have humored him and said ‘Yes, taxes will increase”? Off course she could but he’d have gotten the soindbite he was looking for. At the end of the day she did answer his question.

    • @web angel you are not reading what I said….or you are not or can’t grasp the concept……if you are going to make a run for President you must face interviews, you must give them the “sound bite” they are looking for(your words, not mine) Politicians need exposure, interviews need to do interviews, they need each other…….if Politicians don’t want to answer the questions the interviewer asks they should not do the interview…..
      He got a much better “soundbite” than he ever could have bargained or hoped for when she dodged the question,
      Interviewers love it when Politicians refuse to answer their questions, first they don’t have to think of another question, they just ask the same question over and over again and second, it makes the interviewer sound tough for asking a tough question and the Politician sound weak for not wanting to answer it
      Now Don’t write back, I am not going to explain it again, I like Elizabeth and I am not going to criticize her again, she would make a great President, she just made a little mistake this time

    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? I prefer the analogy mentioned by Cenk of The Young Turks: tonight’s debate was like a kung-fu movie, where the two heroes have their backs against each other and vanquish an overwhelming evil force attacking them from all sides. Sanders and Warren for the win!

    Mathews looks uncomfortable when Warren responds with logical and sensible answers. Chris Matthews is trying to phrase questions in such a way that it’ll mislead the poorly-educated viewers in order to negatively influence their opinion of Elizabeth Warren.

    • He just wants straight answers for once, instead of emotional fundraiser fluff. He knows that politicians think that they can just get away with stating their usual well-rehearsed talking points. But the point of an interview is to tell the audience something they may not know. So don’t education shame. Not everyone’s really into politics, outside of the debates, and immediate interviews. People just want the truth.

    • @Tom Krohn LOL … Warren is a walking load of feces. The problem with making everyone equal is that it requires an enforcer—someone has to MAKE people remain equal. Being equal is not the desire of most. It goes against human nature. Socialism and Communism require a tyrannical government to MAKE people do what they would not wish to do left to their own desires. Bernie/Warren supporters would allow these clowns to turn them into government chattel. Of course many of them already are … Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    • @Remy Mafia The DemWITS have never met any truth. They are kept ignorant and angry by their left-nut Media propaganda masters.

    • @J N then why didn’t she answer the question? Because it will indeed cost more

  7. Chris Matthews is obnoxious.

      Why? For pushing Warren to answer a real important question like where the 40 trillion will come from to pay for medicare for all and whether taxes will go up? How dare he. He should have stuck to the script. He’ll probably get written up by his boss Rachel Maddow today.

    • Ernesto Porras-Polo | July 31, 2019 at 12:15 PM | Reply

      gangigirl1 why , because he asked an obvious question?

  8. If this cocksuckers attack republicans like they attack progressive we would be on a working government.

    • Sabine Katsavrias | July 31, 2019 at 7:57 AM | Reply

      perfectly spoken!

    • Real point , act like pitbulls with progressives and turn into poodles when it comes time to question republicans about corruption and corporate welfare polices

    • Saint Scanderbeg | July 31, 2019 at 10:03 AM | Reply

      Sure, if it was true but it just isnt. Republicans get called racist, and any other phobes you can imagine. Yea they have it easy lol

      Triple_Fun – They do. It’s called the mainstream media and Twitterverse. They’ve been attacking Trump’s administration since November 2016. Yet he keeps them dancing. About time the Dems got the same treatment.

    Jeez he needs to retire. I don’t know why he’s always working – worst interviewer for an amazing candidate

    Chris if you’re going to ask a question let the person answer sheesh.

    • Saint Scanderbeg | July 31, 2019 at 10:00 AM | Reply

      She literally avoided answering the question by asking a different question in return. Chris knows that taxes MUST be increased to cover it, Warren knows it too but she wont admit because she knows that middle class doesnt want taxes increased.

    • Right Wing of the Nut House | July 31, 2019 at 11:15 AM | Reply

      @Saint Scanderbeg Its a question that, while having the simple answer of ‘yes’ is more complex and needs to be answered with the complex version to be understood.

      Paying more in taxes and not having to do copays or get price gouged by an insurance company is cheaper than being stuck in the current situation we are in. It’s a minute tax increase and Bernie plans on putting the taxes further away from the lower and middle class with a tax on the stock exchange.

    • Chucks Grace | July 31, 2019 at 11:41 AM | Reply

      @Right Wing of the Nut House Wrong. In order to pay for Medicare for all every person in america would have to pay an extra $10,000/yr in taxes. I’m sure a family of 4 struggling to make ends meet would love that. LOL

  11. MSNBC’s bias for insurance and pharmaceutical companies is gross !!!!!!

  12. Chris Matthews dropped out of grad school because he couldn’t hack it and yet he’s been enabled to use the color box to try to hypnotize people toward his neo-liberal propaganda for over 30 years. It’s obvious his career has just been one long corporate advertiser controlled infomercial to trick the American people into supporting his trickle down economics candidates.

    Now let’s use the same method of asking and chasing the truth when interviewing Trump instead of letting him get away with everything

    • Not just Trump, but all Corporate Dems and Reptilicans. MSM is such a joke.

    • Saint Scanderbeg | July 31, 2019 at 10:05 AM | Reply

      They dont question Trump. You just make up their mind first, call him the worst thing on the planet then they pretend to be neutral. Give me a break.

    Can you say “TIME TO RETIRE” Chris.

  15. ZIP CODE 48204 | July 31, 2019 at 3:04 AM | Reply

    Medicare for All. Chris sound like a rich people PR guy. Bernie 2020

  16. Wow, Matthews asking hardball questions to Warren but kissing balls from Delaney, cereal name guy, and Ryan. A-hole

  17. How much does Chis Mathew is worth?
    You would think that he is the only person who would pay the cost of healthcare for ALL.

  18. Sieglinde Eilserv | July 31, 2019 at 4:49 AM | Reply

    Could Chris Matthews make any more of an obvious attempt to get a gotcha soundbite? Neo-liberals be neo-liberaling.

  19. He is so stupid 😂😰 oh no how much my taxes will raise that’s all I care about 🙄 people dying.. I can’t relate because I’m rich 🤷‍♂️🤮
