Warren: Trump's Dangling Potential Gun Reform Is 'Corruption In Washington' | Craig Melvin | MSNBC 1

 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren at the 2020 Gun Forum in Las Vegas, tells Craig Melvin that gun legislation hasn't been passed yet because of the overarching issue in American government: Corruption. "This isn't hard," she says, "and yet it doesn't happen … what is so badly broken in this democracy that something that the overwhelming majority of Americans want to see done doesn't get done?" Aired on 10/2/19.

    Screw Americans! Look at what other western and Asian democracies do to keep weapons of war off their streets. They use common sense. Something that is prohibited in America.

      We don’t care about how other countries run themselves. Americans have the right to own the gun of the times. In the 1800’s, it was the muzzleloader. Today, it is a semi-auto rifle.

      Denmark’s progressive income tax tops out at 55.8%.
      Whether you’re single or married with children also makes no difference, high taxes!
      Most of you ride bikes cuz you can’t afford to buy cars because you’re government controls you.
      Denmark, a nice place to visit but I certainly wouldn’t want to live there.
      Too expensive!

      @Deplorable Do I just get the impression that Americans who live in a country that terrorizes the rest of the world usually give a s**t about the opinion from people in other parts of the world?! My brutal advice: Just learn sth. about all those “s**thole” countries (also the “extreme socialist” ones) and then about the people; their history and how they developed. I often gotta laugh so hard when I read things from Americans how they see countries in Europe. Misinformed, believing myths and overall ignorant in so many ways that it is quite entertaining, but also very sad.

    Lobbyists own our politicians. Pharma and nra own all politicians.

    Ssri’s + guns = mass shootings and suicides

    ssri’s are proven to be placibo by their makers and to cause suicidal ideation and violence.

    Can my neighbor on antidepressants, own a gun?

    Instead of unarming law abiding citizens, she tell us how she plans to keep weapons out of criminals’ hands.

    • Deranged Psycos with no criminal records and weapons of war. The type of people Timothy McVeigh spoke for. Especially his lover Brain damaged cult leader, David Koresh and his arsenal of Democracy. Deranged Nut!

  8. The Republicans are paranoid and projecting their own desire to damage and/or destroy the Republican party. Both parties need to slow down and listen to the other side’s view and seek common ground instead of meanly bull dozing the other side with hot “too fast to listen” harsh words.Stop being shrill. There is a shrill tone on both sides that is preventing progress.

  9. Warren is such a Sociopath. Really when you where a little kid filling out those forms and the question of race came up. Did you lie about it? No why because you knew who you where. Warren took scholarship money a lot of scholarship cash and used it to better herself at the expense of a real minority. Where is the outrage on that issue? Warren then apologizes with a fake quiver of her voice just go and watch the videos. She was only sorry because she was caught. After University that she hook or by crook paid for. She had the audacity to apply for a position at Harvard law school????? WTF who does this? A professional scam artist that is who. Warren is a very good Sociopath. Look up the definition of Sociopath and then watch her responses and her fraudulent rise in power. She will be the down fall of this nation without a doubt. Then and only then will it sink into her skull she is a fraud.

  10. 🚨WHAT’S THE PLAN 🚨to protect us from the Christian Fascist Neo-Nazi 2nd Amendment Army’s reaction to their Mega-Church Millionaire Televangelist Pastors’ calls for 🚨 unHoly Civil War ? 🚨. We CANNOT DEPEND ON HOMELAND SECURITY

  11. Pocahontas is just scared of guns because all she has is a tomahawk and a bow.

    Warren will give us four more years of Trump

  13. opioid drugs alone are causing the near-equivalent of two Las Vegas massacres PER DAY in terms of the number killed

  14. Maybe it’s time for a cold one?

  15. President Liz Warren. I love her. Let’s go after corruption. Liz Warren is the next President. We all feel it.

  16. What if we just removed Republicans from power by voting sensibly?

    You dimwitted sumbitch! You don’t tell your Trump how to court the electorate. We ain’t one-at-a-timin’ here. We’re MASS communicating!

  18. A few big differences between Warren & Bernie:

    Bernie
    has been committed to Medicare for All from the beginning. Warren
    only recently declared she is fully supportive of Medicare for all.

    Unlike
    Warren, Bernie is committed to small donor fundraising even in the
    General election. Warren has said she would only do small donor
    fundraising in the Primary, so Bernie won’t feel any sort of pressure to
    bend on his policy stances once elected.

    She originally planned on voting for Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing, but then flip flopped when she was criticized.

    Warren
    worked to repeal the ‘Medical Device Tax’ which helped fund the ACA,
    in order to appease the Medical Device Industry in her state.

    Unlike
    Warren, Bernie has a long history of progressivism dating back to
    the 60s. Warren was a staunch Republican up until the late 90s.

    Bernie
    has also been one of the longest serving members of congress, he was
    a mayor in Vermont, and has a lot of experience in governance
    compared to Warren.

    Warren’s
    plan to fund her policies through a wealth tax is potentially
    unconstitutional, therefore harder to implement than Bernie’s Wall
    Street speculation tax and higher income taxes on wealthy entities.

    Warren voted twice
    to increase the Military budget brought forth under Pres. Trump,
    which appropriated over $81Billion for purchase of Aircraft, Weapons,
    Missiles, and Combat Vehicles. On top of that it appropriated several
    Billion dollars toward other parts of the DoD.

    Bernie
    wants to cancel all student debt, Warren wants to implement a
    means-tested solution. A Means-tested program will likely further split
    people into the “haves” vs. “have-nots” and are easier to attack,
    dismantle, and weaken.

    There
    is also a more nuanced distinction between them I’d like to make,
    with all the political differences aside. The one area I think Bernie
    absolutely dominates where Warren doesn’t, is with rhetoric.
    They both are offering tons of plans, but to me Bernie is the only
    candidate with a strong message of how it will all be executed. If you
    want to implement even a fraction of either Warren’s or Bernie’s
    plans you need a radical change in voter engagement in this country,
    and I have never
    seen a politician who can rally young people and apathetic people
    into the political process as well as Bernie has. In 2015 he was
    nothing but a small Independent Senator from Vermont, and he went on
    to win 23 contests against the establishment backed former First
    Lady, Secretary of State, and Senator of New York. Now he is arguably
    one of the most popular politicians in America, and he has changed
    the political rhetoric among leading Democrats. Just look at the
    incredibly influential organizations that stemmed out of his 2016
    campaign:

    Justice Democrats

    Brand New Congress

    Our Revolution

    Warren better lose her crybaby sounding voice if she wants to challenge the Donald.
