  1. I always hear about the moldy walls, and how we can scrub it clean. But, I rarely hear about fixing the leaky roof.  Here is the leaky roof:
    We are a flawed democracy because of 1) The electoral college, 2) first past the post voting, 3) our over-powered Senate, that undermines the voice of the people from the House of Representatives.

    And, I think she must know…nothing will get done, with a Republican Senate. So, I’m not sure why democrat candidates are not talking more about how to win the Senate.

    Senate 2020  / 53 (R), 47 (D)
    Likely flips: AL will go (R), CO and ME will go (D)
    Democrats need 2+WH, or 3 for majority, and not lose any other seats.
    Best options for Dems: AZ, NC, and IA.

    • @GM Newbold remove the electoral college and all those states wouldn’t matter. Only California, Texas, and New York have a saying while the others dont because they are a person short.

    • @Isaac vitela No, not true, were talking about the Senate, not the Presidency.

  2. Get ready Warren, your time is coming🇺🇸

  3. So many trolls. Go Elizabeth!

  4. She’s still my favourite. Me thinks Warren has been laying low.

    I had an ear infection that got really bad because I couldn’t afford it ;.; please vote

    • Dear Senator Warren you seem like a nice person But I’ve seen you Shred Wells Fargo executives and lets keep doing the same if your lining your pockets off the backs of poor and middle class folks watch out Senator Warren won’t be so nice………

    • I will vote. For Berne. His M4A will help with your ear infection

    • Ok, I guess I will vote for Tulsi Gabbard then. And isn’t even better that we have a woman of color. These white liberal woman with their white privilege should not be in charge.

    • Cat Dooley Yeah tulsi and yang always illustrate how empty the identity politics wing of the party is. If there was a black AOC or bernie it would illustrate it even more, they’d smear them and silence them and support some old white guy who’s republican on half of the issues like Biden

      I can’t wait for more black progressives to get elected, there’s a few great candidates running democratic house primaries this time, jamaal bowman, mckayla Wilkes, Anthony ____ and more

    • @MIDAS64ful While I would love a women president, there is a massive MASSIVE flaw in your logic here. This is a nasty case of identity politics / sexism in disguise. Bernie is the originator of many of these policies, has a TREMENDOUS record voting on these things over the past 4 decades, hasn’t flip-flopped on any issues like Liz has, did not vote for Trumps bloated military budget, etc etc. While I like Liz, I think she’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and that she’s riding Bernie’s coattails while giving half-measures and light-versions of his policy proposals. We need a revolution to get these policies in there, and the movement on the progressive left is behind Bernie. If your only argument is that he’s an old white man, then I think you need to take a look at your judgment / morals.

  6. Jim Gaffigan’s inside voice is Elizabeth Warren’s everyday voice

  7. People in the US pay to go to the doctors? I can’t even begin to imagine what pressure that must put on people.

    • It’s over 200k just to become a nurse practioner in this country. We are all paying.

    • You have no idea. Not only do we pay to go to the doctor, but many families must pay $6k or more per year before their insurance will pay a dime. Per year. Also, stupid US citizens who fear the government making decisions about what healthcare they can receive, have no problem with a for-profit corporation making that decision. So many are so foolish in this country.

      It’s really quite awful!

      We pay several hundred dollars per month in health insurance premiums. Then we still pay hundreds to thousands in co payments, deductibles and coinsurance. About 25 years ago these costs were pretty low, and it was designed to help the insured share in the cost of their care. But now it seems the costs are intended to discourage receiving care. Major surgery can cost you tens of thousands of dollars, in addition to your health insurance premiums. One big problem is that most Americans get their coverage from their employer. The employer usually pays at least part of the premium and collects the rest in payroll deduction. People with health problems can drive up insurance costs, raising costs for the employer. This gives the employer an incentive to fire or not hire otherwise capable people. If we had some type of a national health insurance program, the employers would not be concerned about the cost to cover their employees, healthcare and the workplace would be more fair for people with health risks such as diabetes or heart disease.

  8. Awesome interview with Elizabeth Warren! Sure makes sense to me what she’s saying about healthcare. I’m sick of being sick because I can’t afford care and of seeing so many others – including so many young people sick. MSNBC – get out of the way! We’re tired of your pessimistic attitude and loud sneering at anyone who poses a risk to your drug company advertisers’ bottom line.

    • So true on every point. I’d just like to add that they also have been very pro Bloomberg, pushing him like crazy. I wonder if that $37 million in advertising is why.

    • Among the rights of Americans, healthcare is the most needed right at. My age 40 son was laid off in a merger and cannot afford to see a doctor for a couple of real needs. Sure, mom and dad are helping, but we’re not rich.

    • @JRG2733 I’m medically disabled, with an amazing special needs 20 month old son. Our future, but especially *HIS* future depends on receiving adequate medical care. We have medicaid, and we *STILL* are forced to deal with insurance companies who “run” it for the state; which means we both get turned down for important things every day. The only answer is to kick these for-profit companies out of life and death decisions!

    • @Alexis B Bless you. In this matter, I have no ideological bias but have been through many family situational crises and know medical care is a basic right that will improve life for everyone. How could anyone deny that?

  9. She has policy points, plans already, put that against Pete’s philosophy leading to blah de blah de blah nothing, I would love a Warren/Sanders or Sanders/Warren ticket, progressive or not

    • Warren said she will get rid of the Electoral College votes. Are you OK with that?

    • @Geo Geo actually yes I am, I don’t think you should have a million more votes and still lose

      All i hate is you guys are falling for her back tracking. Warren will def not fight for Med For All and would consolidate.

    • whether she wins the nomination or not. No question that she would absolutely demolish trump in a debate dude. She would make him regret stepping on that stage, “bigly” regret it in the great words of our president.

    Build-in Medicare For All through the states!!! That’s how Canada did it.

    • Jennifer McGoldrick | December 5, 2019 at 3:16 PM | Reply

      Collin Ferguson there are 10 provinces in Canada, not 50, and far fewer people. It’s not fair for people born in Kentucky to not have the insurance we have in New York. We must do this on the federal level or millions of people will wait until their deaths just because of where their parents live and gave birth to them.

    • Collin Ferguson | December 5, 2019 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      @Jennifer McGoldrick, OK, then. Nancy Pelosi already said Medicare-for-all won’t pass in Congress, so what are you going to do?

    • Jennifer McGoldrick | December 5, 2019 at 8:16 PM | Reply

      Collin Ferguson not going to pretend Nancy Pelosi has a crystal ball.

    • I’m not gonna wait for 3-4 months after having a severe leg injury at work…

  11. Trump has finally shown us his favorite writer, since Agent Orange clearly wants to be Honore de Putin Ballsac.

  12. Looks like the crying billionaire is Leon Cooperman.

    Never heard of him…

  13. Also like to point out my sister lives in Maine and is a single Mom no help worked herself out of low income works with kids who have extreme special needs and got cut for her insurance because she “makes too much”…last January she was in a car accident we’re her car rolled and she walked home in a snowstorm because she couldn’t afford to have medical bills…..I HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR AND WE NEED CHANGE SO THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN🙏🏼

  14. I would like to hear from Bernie Sanders

    Love Elizabeth, but where’s Bernie MSNBC.

  17. Fair enough Elizabeth. That video of Brits reacting to the cost of American healthcare did not go viral for nothing.

  18. Message to anybody who opposes Medicare For All as somehow “socialist”:
    Just wait until you lose your great job and health coverage; and you, or your spouse, or your children are injured or get sick, and you can’t afford a doctor or hospital, or you go through the humiliation of asking for charity, or you have to file for bankruptcy.

  19. Elizabeth Warren is the Real Deal. She knows what changes the middle class need and how to achieve them.

  20. Warren has so many good policies!
