Bernie Sanders on trade with China, health care and student debt


JUDY WOODRUFF: Independent Senator Bernie
Sanders of Vermont became a household name in 2016, when he ran a progressive campaign
for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. But much of that primary race was a one-on-one
contest. He is now vying for the Democratic nomination
again, but, this time, he’s up against at least 20 other candidates. And Senator Sanders joins us now. Senator Sanders, welcome back to the “NewsHour.” SEN. BERNIE SANDERS (I-VT), Presidential Candidate:
Good to be with you, Judy. JUDY WOODRUFF: So let’s start with our lead
story tonight. And that is the stock market dropping over
470 points, fears, analysts say, of a trade war with China, the president — President
Trump’s policies toward China. It appears to many people that your approach
to trade with China is very similar to the president. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: No, it is not. What I recognize is that, for many years,
our trade policies have been a disaster. If you look at NAFTA and you look at PNTR
with China, in fact, it’s cost us about four million decent-paying American jobs and helped
lead the race to the bottom, where wages were depressed in America. So, I think we do need new trade policies
that are fair to the working people of this country, not just to the CEOs. But, as usual, I think Trump gets it wrong
in terms of implementation. JUDY WOODRUFF: But you would be tough on China,
as he is. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: I would be supportive of American
workers. I think it is wrong that, when large corporations
are making huge profits, that they simply shut down in this country, throw American
workers out on the street, then look for cheap labor abroad. So, I believe that we have got to deal with
that issue, but not the way Trump is dealing with it. JUDY WOODRUFF: Well, let me turn to something
that you spend a lot of time talking about in this campaign, and that is Medicare, health
care, and, namely, a proposal for Medicare for all, guaranteed health care for every
person, man, woman and child, in the country. I think everybody agrees the current system
needs fixing. Everybody — more people need to be covered. But, right now, this is an economy that is
spending, what, $3.5 trillion a year on health care. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Right. JUDY WOODRUFF: It is a sixth of the American
economy. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Right. JUDY WOODRUFF: And even you acknowledge that
doing something like Medicare for all would be a massive disruption, do away with private… (CROSSTALK) JUDY WOODRUFF: OK. All right. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: That wasn’t my word, no. JUDY WOODRUFF: All right. Other people are saying it would be a massive
disruption. Do away with private insurance. Why not move incrementally, rather than moving
with what you propose? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Because you have a dysfunctional
system that is really rotten to the core. And let me tell you something, Judy. The people who are opposing Medicare for all
in the insurance industry, in the pharmaceutical industry, these are people who are making
huge compensation benefits. And they are seeing their corporations make
huge profits. Six — the 10 largest drug companies made
$69 billion in profits last year. Yes, they don’t like the idea that I intend
to lower drug prices by 50 percent. But here is the bottom line. Right now, you have got 34 million people,
no health insurance, even more underinsured. We pay the highest prices in the world for
prescription drugs. We end up spending twice as much per person
on health care as do the people of any other country. I live 50 miles away from the Canadian border. How can anyone defend a dysfunctional system
like that? JUDY WOODRUFF: But when you have a — as we
said, such a huge part of the U.S. economy — the Congressional Budget Office did a nonpartisan
analysis of your plan, essentially, universal coverage. They came away. And they concluded many people employed in
the health care system now would lose their jobs. They concluded that employer-based health
care service that most non-elderly Americans now use would be eliminated. And they say fewer people would likely go
into the medical profession because pay would be less. (LAUGHTER) SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: That’s exactly wrong. JUDY WOODRUFF: So… SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Right now, because of all
of the stress that the insurance companies put on doctors, you’re finding many doctors
demoralized. Doctors are trained and nurses are trained
to work with their patients and try to do well by their patients. Right now, before they can do any procedure,
they have got to call up three insurance company folks. Here is the bottom line, all right? The bottom line is, we are the only major
country on Earth not to guarantee health care to all people. We spend twice as much, and our health care
outcomes are poor. Medicare right now, Judy, is the most popular
health insurance program in the country. All that I want to do over a four-year period
is expand Medicare to all of our people. We will save the average American significant
sums of money, give him or her freedom of choice regarding doctors and hospitals. JUDY WOODRUFF: But you say it’s freedom of
choice, but you’re doing away with private insurance. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Yes. JUDY WOODRUFF: And we remember the reaction. President — remember, President Obama said,
you can keep your health care plan. You can keep your doctor. It didn’t work out that way. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Yes, because those were junk
plans that he ended up doing away with. Right now, do you think the average American
has freedom of choice with regard to a doctor? If a doctor is not in your network, you can’t
go to that doctor. All that I want to say to the American people
tonight is, we are taking on the insurance companies and the drug companies, who make
huge profits off of dysfunctional system that is not working for the average American. They are going to spend, Judy, in my view,
hundreds of millions of dollars trying to preserve their profits and their outrageous
compensation packages. The guy who’s head of Aetna created a merger
with CVS. He got $500 million in bonus. I don’t think that’s where we should be spending
health care dollars. JUDY WOODRUFF: But your plan would call for
some form of higher taxes, no question? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Of course. Look, if I’m going to do away with all of
your premiums and your co-payments and your deductibles and we’re expanding benefits,
it has to be paid for. But when you eliminate premiums and deductibles
and co-payments and out-of-pocket expenses, the average American will be better off. JUDY WOODRUFF: Let’s talk about the cost of
college. One of your signature proposals, tuition-free
college, you would impose a financial… SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Public colleges and universities,
not every… JUDY WOODRUFF: Public. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Not Harvard. Public colleges and universities. JUDY WOODRUFF: Right. You would impose a financial transactions
tax, as it’s called, to pay for it. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: On Wall Street. JUDY WOODRUFF: But how much — what would
this mean for the, what, 45 million Americans who have college debt right now? How would they benefit? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Oh, they would benefit very
substantially. JUDY WOODRUFF: Because they have left college,
and they’re in debt. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: No, no, no. This $900 billion that we’re talking about
— look, here’s the story. Right now, Wall Street profits are very, very
high. They’re charging you 17 percent interest rates
on your credit card, real usury. We bailed them out after their illegal activity
nearly destroyed the economy. So, what I believe is, at a time when hundreds
— hundreds of thousands of bright young kids can’t afford to go to college, and millions
of people are struggling with outrageous levels of student debt, this is an issue we have
to deal with. So I am proudly — and I’m glad that more
and more people are following my lead. I believe that, in the 21st century, when
you talk about public education, public colleges and universities should be tuition-free, and
we substantially lower student debt. People should not be punished for getting
a higher education in a competitive global economy. JUDY WOODRUFF: And just quickly, the second
part of this is, right now, states would still have to pick up a… (CROSSTALK) JUDY WOODRUFF: … bit of the cost. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: They would have to, yes. JUDY WOODRUFF: But these — many of these
are states that have been cutting spending for higher education. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Yes, right. JUDY WOODRUFF: How do you get them to flip
and spend more? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Well, that’s another issue. Instead of giving tax breaks to billionaires
— you got Amazon and dozens of other corporations not paying a nickel in federal income tax
last year. So, my view is that large profitable corporations
should start paying their fair share of taxes. We will work with the states. But the bottom line is, in a competitive global
economy, every kid in this country, regardless of his or her income, deserves a higher education,
if that is their goal. JUDY WOODRUFF: Very quickly, a question on
foreign policy. You have been saying recently you wish you
had spoken more about foreign policy four… SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Yes. JUDY WOODRUFF: Two years ago, when you ran
for president. What would you do right now to punish Russia
for what they did in 2016? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: First of all, unlike Trump,
you have to acknowledge the very seriousness of what they did. To try to undermine democracy in America and
other countries is simply not acceptable. And they have got to pay a price. So we have a president who doesn’t even acknowledge
that. But I think we should be looking at very tough
sanctions. This is an act of aggression against American
democracy. It cannot be accepted. JUDY WOODRUFF: Beyond what this administration… SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Yes, absolutely. JUDY WOODRUFF: So, and what would that do? I mean, are the Russians going to stop — are
you saying that’s going to stop them from… SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Well, I can’t give you a blueprint. JUDY WOODRUFF: … hacking? I mean… SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: But we have a president who
doesn’t even acknowledge — virtually doesn’t even acknowledge the reality of what they
did. Here is a — Putin and his friends are trying
to undermine American democracy and democracy in Europe. They have got to know that’s not acceptable. And the world has got to tell them they’re
going to pay a very heavy price for it. JUDY WOODRUFF: A question about polls. Joe Biden, you and he were running roughly
one-two in the polls. And then he got into the race officially. He has surged into the lead. You have slipped. What’s going on? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Well… JUDY WOODRUFF: Is he appealing to the moderates
among Democrats? What’s going on? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: I think you’re going to see
— here’s my prediction. You’re going to see polls that are very good
for Joe and for Bernie and polls that are not so good. All I can tell you is that we are working
really, really hard. I’m very proud that we have over a million
people who have volunteered to work on our campaign. I think, in our campaign, you’re going to
see an unprecedented grassroots effort, not only to help me win the primary and beat Trump,
but really to take on the powerful special interests, who control so much of the economic
and political life of our country. JUDY WOODRUFF: Are you at all concerned he
appeals more to the moderates in the Democratic Party? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: No. (CROSSTALK) SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: I think, at the end of the
day, we’re going to be fine, because I think our message will appeal to working people. We had polls out there that showed us, by
the way, winning in Pennsylvania, winning in Michigan, winning in Wisconsin. And I think we’re going to appeal to the heartland
— I was just in Iowa the other day — because our message of standing up for the working
class in this country, which has been ignored for so long, I think will resonate. And I think people are seeing that Trump is
a phony. He told the American people he would guarantee
health care to everybody. Then he wanted to throw 32 million people
off of health care. He wouldn’t cut Social Security, Medicare
and Medicaid. His budget did exactly that. So, we are going to expose Trump for the fraud
that he is. We have a message that will appeal to working
people, black and white and Latino, all over this country. JUDY WOODRUFF: Senator Bernie Sanders, thank
you very much. We look forward to watching you on the trail. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Thank you very much, Judy. JUDY WOODRUFF: Thank you. JUDY WOODRUFF: And now to another Democratic
contender. Our Amna Nawaz has been on a reporting trip
to Iowa. Last night, she caught up with former Texas
Congressman Beto O’Rourke. And here is part of what he had to say. AMNA NAWAZ: There’s a comment you made early
in an interview that has kind of stuck with you, is the idea of being born to be in this,
born to do this. People have said it about you, too. BETO O’ROURKE (D), Presidential Candidate:
Yes. AMNA NAWAZ: And when it came across to a lot
of people — you are, in a diverse field of candidates, a straight white man. It sounded little entitled. So I wonder how you look back on that now. How — what do you explain to people… BETO O’ROURKE: Yes. AMNA NAWAZ: … who say that maybe wasn’t
the right thing to say? BETO O’ROURKE: Yes. Well, I hope that you read the entire article,
because I didn’t say that I was born to be president of the United States. Whoever decides the headlines on the magazines
made that choice. What I said is that I feel like I was born
to serve people, you know, a small business owner, creating jobs in El Paso, meeting a
payroll week in, week out. I’m not entitled to anything. Every vote, every caucus-goer will be earned
by showing up, showing profound respect, by listening to their concerns, learning from
them, but also showing up with the courage of our convictions, talking about what this
country needs to do at this pivotal, pivotal, defining moment. JUDY WOODRUFF: And stay tuned for more of
Amna’s reporting from Iowa soon. And join us tomorrow for a conversation with
another 2020 contender, former Maryland Congressman John Delaney.

  1. Judy, you should know after 2016, a moderate Democrat is a Corporate Lobby Whore eager to sell political favors even Uranium to the Russians (Hillary Clinton).

  2. Senator, how will you "lower drug prices by 50% without causing drug companies to stop seeking new cures and innovation?" Sanders: "Magic."

  3. I feel the Bern, but can’t understand why he is entertaining the entire Russia nonsense. The extent of Russian interference that was exposed is ridiculously small and not directly tied to the Russian government. So why go along with neoliberal centrist excuses for losing the the 2016 election especially when he was clearly cheated in California and New York?

  4. Public bipartisan uniparty support news hour. PBS! Reminds of coworker Judy telling a tale about Jim to watch him squirm and lose his job!

  5. Even if Bernie doesn't get the democratic nomination, I will still write his name in when I vote for pres, regardless.

  6. Bernie is such a liar. Did he really say Trump did nothing to Russia? When it happened under Obama…. The left is living in fantasy land as usual.

  7. there is now and has never been ANY evidence russia did anything. The DNC was not hacked, it was an inside job and it easily led to hillary's non secure set up and podesta gave his password.
    We have a president who didn't attack and punish a foreign country where there is nothing that shows they did anything wrong. Anyone with a brain would expect to see exactly what was done and with the intel the USA has we expect they easily would know….so the fact that they don't know is certainly suspicious. Bernie would jump to the conclusion and punish russia without even knowing what theydid or if they did anything.
    Government should NOT be involved in healthcare anymore than they are right now. What any other country, or all other countries do doesn;t matter, none of them have the best healthcare in the world, only America does. There is nothing broken about American healthcare, that is and always has been a lie. The professionals who gave us the best in the world should continue to manage it. NO ONE is denied healthcare in America. The only problem we have is foreigners getting free healthcare, that should be stopped.

  8. From what I've seen so far, most of Europe and Oceania are in support of Bernie. He's proposing to fix America's issues, and countries that have already fixed those issues see that.

  9. Galactic beligerance on how all this free stuff won't destroy America wind our freedoms. Socialism always leads to communism and destitution for the mass population of a country.

  10. Ugh. god dammit bernie. Just let the media run with this ridiculous shirtless Moscow vodka party thing. The average American worker could give less of a shit about sanctions on Russia.

  11. The Democratic candidates have to learn to speak MAGA-nese, just mention AMERICA being #1 several times with some other patriotic platitudes & diatribes, make some jokes about the opposition and they will cheer. Also keep mentioning "America is back" with some other lies, REPEAT them over, and over, and over, and keep pummeling them repeatedly and they'll be on your side.

  12. I like Bernie, but I do think we need higher Tariffs with China. Before the civil war the entire government was funded by tariffs and there was no income tax.

  13. This rich bitch is stupid or arguing in bad faith she is literally married to a rightwing economist. How is ANYTHING she said even journalism? That was class war. I’m so sick of rich journalists waging class war on the rest of us and pretending to be serious people.

    No doy you lose employer based healthcare under universal healthcare cause you don’t need it anymore. Fucking dumbass.

    And no that wouldn’t mean less choice this bitch thinks wage slavery is freedom. It’s not like the doctors are all gonna move to Indonesia. If don’t right it would LITERALLY mean LESS interference with choice.

    But to bitches like this? It’s not a choice unless THEY can decide for YOU. Choices are for them.

    Tell the rest of us how it feels to get to choose to lose healthcare if we need to leave an abusive job or try to move up in the world.

    What a disingenuous fraud for a person and journalist.

  14. Solution: stop giving free money to the banks through the Fed. Instead, give the money to students to pay off their loans. The banks will have to rely on their CUSTOMERS for money — not the Fed, and not the government. The government will help REAL PEOPLE, not corporations.

  15. What are you talking about. Those are fake polls. Bernie is winning every single poll you guys lie too much.

  16. Holy shit, what is with the glorifying of corporations and defense of the establishment in MSM these days? I expected better from PBS certainly not this!

  17. Bernie’s ideas have been tried and tested in many cases and many countries. It is very simple, look and see how it worked out…everytime. And talk to the survivors. Case closed to every rational, sane person.

  18. "every kid deserves a higher education" hmmm, Dear Bernardo Sanders, not every kid in America wants to go to college. Are you going to force college education on those that don't want to go to college?

  19. China is backing billions in "Green Bonds" the EU will likely sign on…getting to green energy and away from petro dollar. Russia is grabbing up gold…so as to remain sovereign outside sanctions and not forced into war…the axis of evil…israel usa and saudi arabian elites are going down…israel holds all usa gold…saudi arabia hold the backing for us dollar … Black gold…the US has only the military…when war is stopped…us hegemony will fail…and all three tyrannical governments will fall and their citizens will rise up and join the human race..these three governments are the trifecta of evil…and the more they show it..they expose themselves as nothing but a paper tiger…the truth about power is that it must for the sake of something real and "good" when the facade of "goodness and justice" falls away…power falls with it. Soon. The. rest of the world will drop the petro dollar and all alliance with usa hegemony while simultaneously investing in green energy…peace and humanity…the us elite economy will crash taking israel and saudi arabia with it…the profiteers in all sectors in usa will be undermined when americans invest in green jobs under worker control…its a beautiful future…bernie aoc and tulsi gabbard and the rest fully anti establishment candidates will undermine the corpotacracy from within…us citizens from outside…the world will be at peace and going green toward the thriving of all peoples and away from national hegemony…war…climate destruction…and greed.

  20. Bernie i love you…but you must not tow a line for establishment on russia …war and foreign policy…not only is our war machine evil and destructive to humanity…we cannot get your domestic policies until we end the war machine…they are intimately connected. Please bernie….stop this because your entire ability to effect change at all is incumbent on the end of war machine and petro dollar…cmon we need you to stay true globally….if not its like obamacare … Half measures that make things worse and prove you wrong…

  21. Tulsi cant win this cycle…how do we get bernie to understand that his foreign policy alignment with the establishment is not only why he is losing support…but that it isnt our purity tests that causes it…bit our knowledge that if he wins and doesnt completely end war …us hegemony and the petro dollar…he will not get any change we need domestically…if he does…it will only cause pain like half measure obamacare? We need him to stay silent…and then bring tulsi onto yhe ticket when he gets the nomination…which is what i assumed he was doing in order to play it safe…or just take a stand on the truth himself. But this crap? Taking a stand in the wrong direction…bernie WAKE UP! YOU CLAIMED YOU BELIEVED IN US! FOLLOW THRU… BECAUSE THE ELITES HOLD OUR ENTIRE FAKE WEALTH BASED ON THE PETRO DOLLAR…THE CITIZENS WILL NOT LOSE WHEN THE ECONOMY FALLS…WE WILL GAIN ACCESS TO THE 2/3 OF OUR TAXES SUPPORTING THE MIC…AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO INVEST IN OURSELVES…HUMANITY….PEACE AND THE FUTURE. THE CHINESE ARE BACKING BILLIONS IN GREEMEN BONDS…SOON THE EU AND RUSSIA WILL AS WELL. US CITIZENS CAN ENSURE PEACE AND OUR FUTURE BY USING THOSE BONDS TO BULID OUR OWN GREEN INDUSTRY…THE ELITES IN USA SAUDI ARABIA ISRAEL AND GREAT BRITAIN WILL BE CONSIGNED TO HISTORY AND HUMANITY WILL START TO THRIVE

  22. I cannot believe how loaded these questions are, the same echo we hear every day from corporate media; millionaires paid by Billionaires who only want us to hear what they deem acceptable. Horrifying.

  23. Bernie and Biden are too old to be the 21st century's leader, all their ideas are too old, may be good for 30 years ago's economy. Trump's trade war is a typical example, this was cold war tool, when Soviet Union and US have totally different industries structures, products made by Soviet Union are totally independent from US, adding tariff to Soviet Union's product, does have not any impact on US side, this definitely would put more pressure on Soviet Union. Today, US and China are intertwined, US in the high-end, China is in the low-end, adding tariff to Chinese goods will hurt US too. We need looking for people under 50 to be the leaders.

  24. with current huge productivity of everything,we can provide meds,food,living for everyone, so lets go communism system,and use all power to improve space tech.

  25. I used to contribute to npr and other public news until I found out that they receive Koch brothers support. A couple of years ago, there was a softball interview with the Koch brothers themselves. That's why this interview sounds just like CNN

  26. "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when their salary depends on his not understanding it" ~Upton Sinclair..

    That woman is the epitome of this quote.

    Also, I must wonder what have they cut out of the interview. We know that they edit out certain things and patch it in such a way to deceive people on what the actual and full context of the responses are. There's a video documenting them doing that to Jill Stein in 2016.

  27. She may be smart but omg another brainwashed paniced sad woman with a bunch of ignorant questions. What a long way to go for the usa. BERNIE 2020. You'll fight till you die for justice for all in your country. You are much admired in the rest of the world.

  28. Bernie is not finished his clarafying answer and the 'but' from that judy? woman is allready in her mouth. Sad

  29. AMERICAN PEONS – US CITIZENS new Border Patrol & the WALL for ALL.

    $1,000,000.00 at today's Money Value is Equal to somewhere between $100,000 to $50,000
    …. the average American to equal 1960 LIVING INCOME is over $150,000 yearly…..

    The Wealthy have INFLATION ATTACKS by Taxing our PRODUCTS Average 10% Yearly.
    The Wealthy Monopoly give FEW another option to buy BASIC NEEDS.
    ….. TAXING THE POOR THE MIDDLE CLASS OR STARVATION TAXING BY INFLATION

    AMERICAN PEONS – peon generally referred to someone working in an unfree labor system (known as peonage). The word often implied debt bondage or indentured servitude.

  30. 1971 the CONSPIRACY of the INSURANCE COMPANIES decided the MORE FOLKS DIE
    ….. More the CLINTONS – REAGANS – BUSH – KOCH – TRUMPS
    who can afford the investment could earn not just money but
    the THREAT of DEATH if everyone didn't buy their ANSWER to Health.

  31. Bernie is WAY more articulate than I've ever seen him. This is super encouraging to see. And yes, eve PBS is controlled by the corporate hacks……..they won't question other candidates like this……probably won't question Tulsi at all

  32. End private medical insurance instead of national healthcare. You are showing your corporate bend. This is a disgrace.

  33. Ask the American people — its is our money — would we rather pay for MORE military killing machines, or our neighbor's healthcare?

  34. The 20+ candidates is the democratic parties new strategy to dilute bernie's chances. Biden was always going to be the candidate. Democratic party corporate dinosaurs need to be put to sleep.

  35. US media is spreading lies about other countries everyday, when the Russians do then "they attacked our democracy" what a pile of bullshit.

  36. A PBS video with comments enabled? How did this happen? Was someone sleeping? Activate the rest so you don't look so thin-skinned and unaccountable to the taxpayers who support these productions.

  37. Does this mean "We the people" will have the same good insurance the government has that "We the people"e pay for?

  38. What is the big deal about cost? This is our heath. How much of the family budget do families spend on health care? How much would You spend to keep your children healthy? Rich rulers look at numbers for the petty psychological insecurity that no amount of cash seem to quench distant from the real affects. If we cant afford health what exactly is more important? The military just got an extra 430 billion dollars per year. i didn't hear anyone debate "how can we afford that". There is no reason why health care shouldn't be more of a priority than killing children in brown countries just to make rich people richer. As for the Russian interference in our sacred and pure election system where presidents are appointed by a panel of bankers, the idea that American corporations that have admitted to mass murder and manipulation of other governments all over the world to install dictators for corporate interest are somehow not a worry for our elections is the definition of stupid.

  39. How much is it going to cost the socialist in second place to buy him out this time. Burnie fans have a short memory. You can vote in socialism. You will fight to get ride of it

  40. Why is removing private insurance profiteering considered such a problem?Or put another way why is allowing profiteering off of healthcare a GOOD thing?

  41. Senator Sanders, Please talk more about Jobs, Jobs, and Jobs, clean water, and that Biden is a Corporate Democrat and don't let up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and then talk about your record, and how you have fought the Corporations, and keep hitting them with your voting record. Please lower deductibles for prescriptions with Medicare.

  42. Sanders is an idiot. Never had a real job in his life. Poster child for Term Limits. There sould not be any career politicians.

  43. Main Stream Media, ( aka the Propaganda wing of Corporate America) – NEVER STOPS ATTACKING BERNIE !!!
    If WE don't fight for an economy and a government that works for all of us – then who will ??
    Where's the "Propaganda wing" – for the Working Class ?????????????

  44. PBS is awful. If you donate to PBS, you are essentially donating to this Woman's Cadillac healthcare plan, while she argues against the same for you.

  45. Who is this Judy from PBS,
    Do all of them against healthcare all?
    This bitch does not care, the USA can afford.
    Fuck Judy policy go to Canada bitch…

  46. And Judy would go back to ducking college to learn how to be a reporter the woman is clueless!
    FUCK this idiot!

  47. FOR THOSE WHO DIDN'T GET IT, MEDICARE FOR ALL WOULD PROVIDE QUALITY AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE FOR ALL, AND LEAVE THE AVERAGE FAMILY WITH A SAVINGS OR BETTER QUALITY CARE AT A LOWER RATE.

  48. Joe Biden dropped 10 points in the polls since this interview, due to his regular public foot in mouth syndrome.

    His management has since changed strategy: campaign less.

  49. BERNIE SANDERS , MORE THAN ANY OTHER CANDIDATE MUST REALIZE THAT WE NEED TO RESPECT & ASK HELP FROM CHINA TO WIN THEM AS A FRIEND .
    ONCE THEY LIKE & TRUST US IN A MATURE ECONOMIC PARTNERSHIP THEY WON'T BE WORRYING ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF US MERGING WITH CANADA SOMEDAY .
    IF WE ARE MANNERLY & SEEK FRIENDSHIP , RATHER THAN ISSUE CARELESS ULTIMATUMS OF ANY BODY HAVING TO COMPLY WITH OUR TERMS….

  50. That lady needs to retire she is so out of touch and seems proud of the status quo that gave us trump.

  51. Impeach this piece of garbage and. Trade to China send him there. He would be supportative of China. Socialism is communism and dems want to take over the govt.

  52. Let us guess…free everything, let's punish the Billionaires, class envy, pro-workers… let's all be Comrades.

  53. Bernie you will F-up the economy for sure. Medicare for all is a crap …
    Get rid of the insurance companies! Next!!!!

  54. PBS, please listen to the American peoples' needs and promote Bernie Sanders more. I will not be tuning in anymore as I've done with CNN and FOX.

  55. @5:56 the tuition free public college should be merit based. i wouldn't want to tax money to pay for some meaningless degree of ghetto school failing kids…

  56. And, I would like to add to Bernie's comment: students are not buying cars or homes because they can't afford to add more debt to the debt they are already paying for school. As a result, the auto industry is looking at the automated car and competing with public transit agencies to remain profitable in the future. Perhaps the solution is the making community college and undergraduate education free and lowering tuition debt for graduate students. What you will realize, all the sudden, people will graduate with good enough credit scores to buy cars.

  57. Socialism is not ask, and receive, that Jesus talked about. Money, that is Mammon, is still used with socialism, and capitalism.. Christ in us, the hope of glory. Jesus saw money, as an idol.

  58. Calling the ACA "junk," is really disrespectful to President Obama. If you don't believe me, ask the guy with a pre-existing condition or the woman who now gets cheaper preventive services and reproductive care. On trade, behind the "Standing up for American Workers" mantra, Bernie will create zero jobs if he doesn't embrace fair but free trade (deals like NAFTA and the TPP).
