          I refuse to watch if Tulsi is not present. She should at least be there. Such BS.

            The problem is that the MSM takes an adversarial or non-informational position and does not explain the entire program that Bernie is proposing. That leaves much confusion for people that are not following the candidates' positions closely. Especially since the other candidates are naming their programs Medicare-for-All-(add something here).

                12:15 Exactly what bothered me about Pete Bootygag. He says he trusts the Americans to do what exactly? Fall in a deep pit of debts like some people who aren't savy enough with stuff like this? Because i'm pretty sure more than half the population of the planet have no idea what to do with their insurances and medical stuff,certainly not administration wise,and that's exactly what he's banking on,literally.

                  Why is Gregory Wilpert saying at the beginning that Warren supports Medicare for all? She clearly does not.

                      A pretty uptight bunch of people ,except for Bernie , he has the resolve to wade thru the muck regardless of what happens . He reminds me of an old professor , seasoned and wise , but most of all , patient and calm in the face of pandemonium .

                            3:25 - FALSE. Warren is NOT pushing for M4A, she has backtracked on that initial position and is now towing the softer line for an easement of the existing broken system that only works for the elites.

                              pete buttigieg plan for giving ppl a choice is so stupid ..if u give ppl a choice to buy in to medicare .. the ppl who are not sick or young ppl go with the insurance co.cause the insurance companies will make sure that the young and the healthy pay less than what they would pay in the medicare buy in and only the sick and old will go in the medicare buy in .. that would bankrupt the system and cause even Medicare to be stopped ... its a dangerous path !!! pete buttigieg is a piece of shit and he knows exactly what hes doing thats why he is one of the biggest recipient of big donor money .. THATS WHY THEY LIKE THIS CREEP !!!

                                  agree. Tulsi was polling higher than Harris in some "polls" But the DNC doesn't want the voters to know this.

                                I really love The Real News and am a long term Subscriber. As a foriegn observer and not being in the Left or Right of any politics, and being a keen observer of current events and history, your endless discussion of Race in this panel and the lack of any discussion of the US Economy, political and Government employee criminality, border control or the historic public and private debt, makes an observer understand why all peoples in the US seem to be still moving towards Mr Trump and then a Republican Congress (as Democat Poleticians and Government employees face jail for treasonous activity) in a stated hope for a brighter, shared 'American' future. Even the Soviet Union protected it's borders... .!

                                Universal Health care is dangerous to the core. Canada's citizens come to America if they have the money if they are diagnosed with cancer. People have to wait for months sometimes years to be taken care of in Canada. Sweden is the same. Just ask yourself why we the people will get government Health care while the politicians keep their private providers. Then ask yourself who is going to pay the bill? We are taxed so much that this extra tax will make a lot of people homeless. You will be forced either to pay taxes or eventually face jail time or go homeless. Health care is not a right and never have been. How did people survive before the government decided to take over health care?

                                  @Jason Dayton. " How did people survive before the government decided to take over health care?"? Before Medicare was enacted, people died without any affordable insurance, or the means to pay medical costs!!!

                                  Jason Dayton 😯 you work for somebody that’s paying you enough to spread propaganda. I’ve lived in the USA most of my life now I’m in the uk 🇬🇧 you are clueless I love the USA but all my school friends are living with the stupid health care system that is a sick dog you can’t rely on it. I have sold insurance and guess what if you pay out on every claim you’re fired so USA health care is a lottery and the bet is your life. Now you’re either paid by the system or hopelessly misinformed or a complete moron. My advice is go to whatever candidates you like and read their health care policy. Then see who donated to their cause just in case you’re challenged if a pharmacist company or insurance company is giving them cash you can’t trust them. My good deed for the day is done ✅ lastly I don’t care if you’re dying and losing everything because you’re voting against your own interests that’s on you it will not happen to me of my family or friends over here. So if you’re going say anything dumb back I’m still much better off than you because we voted for our own interest 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧✊

                                  There is a 4 year tier system in the bill Amy Boot cloud jar DID NOT reference.
                                  The 1st year people 55 and older would begin medicare coverage.
                                  The 2nd year people 45 years and older would be covered.
                                  The 3rd year 35 and older would be covered
                                  The 4th year ALL would be covered.
                                  During the transition and in Bernies bill NO ONE I repeat. ..NO ONE would not be covered unless they don't all ready have or have not insurance coverage. ..meaning people in the age groups that do or do not all ready HAD health insurance would be 100% covered with health care, dental, hearing,and vision care..
                                  No copy cats coverage allowed from private insurance company.
                                  Amy Cloud boot jar DID NOT READ Sanders bill....

                                        I have private insurance and i hate it. Most useful stuff is not covered need prior authorization of doctors visits and prescription then whatever they do cover has heavy copays and deductibles so private insurance barely cover anything.

                                            Or to state it most simply, the corporations that are currently required to pay for the health insurance of their employees will pay that into the Medicare for all program instead.

                                          the democrats may be playing but BERNIE isn't! Why do we need insurance companies??? Middle man bribing politicians. IF non -citizens work, they will pay the expanded payroll tax necessary to pay for M4A so they deserve coverage

                                              Bernie is a deeply flawed, but well meaning politician and despite his flaws, the corporate State will crush him and ensure the American public will remain in bondage to the ruling elites (unfortunately).

                                              That's a losing bet because Warren is a weak, disingenuous, political opportunist, just like the rest of them. My bet is on the continued disintegration of the US empire and it couldn't happen soon enough. I just hope the working class can organize a revolution to overthrow this broken system befor it'ss too late.

                                            Warren has changed so much since her years in the Senate.
                                            She is talking like Obama did and then followed the centrist Democrats and Republicans policies.

What you NEED is health CARE!!! And under a Medicare for all Health care system ALL CITIZENS HAVE FULL HEALTHCARE AS A RIGHT!!!!
                                            All these other candidates are Shills for the insurance companies! This is a LIFE or DEATH issue!!!!!! I'm SICK of the misinformation!!!

The United States of America is the wealthiest (Empire) Country in the history of Earth! It is, therefore, IMMORAL for her to treat her citizens the way she has done. It's NOT about you! It's about US.

AND: Cost LESS per-capita then our current system with WORSE health outcomes.

                                            Sorry. Bernie might not be saying it, but I will.
                                            Warren is not the progressive she claims to be.
                                            She’s admitted already that she is a capitalist to the bone. And though she will not accept corporate cash in the primaries, she will absolutely in the general election. This is what is being fought! Eliminating corporate influence on our elections and legislatures!
                                            This will be what loses to trump! If she or Biden is nominated the Democratic candidate, it’s a guaranteed win for trump. Trump ran on lies denying he was bought. THATS what got him the win, along with election fraud. 23yrs ago she didn’t even believe in the progressive values the American people are for.
                                            Now, She’s standing on Bernie’s shoulders with MSM’s and the DNC’s help, as the one with HIS platform he’s been fighting for his whole life?
                                            Say no to Joe and the rest of the status quo and all the Johnny and Jane come latelys.
                                            Sanders/Gabbard 2020
                                            Middle of the ground didn’t work in 2016 and it’s not going to work now.

                                              @Sandy I upvote you and im happy to hope that bernie would potentially appoint Tulsi as secretary of defense if not VP, but in a counterpoint, MANY Republicans support Tulsi, and while they would rather have trump than the establishment dem pick, Tulsi would not only be a thoughtful and competent VP, she would open waaaaay more voters to the sanders campaign. Love Nina. Sec of state?

                                              Warren's position is not universal healthcare, single payer. Look at the plan she put up on her website yesterday. Talks about "access" and "holding insurance companies accountable." She's Obama 2.0.

                                                @Syndicat At this point, bringing the argument home that the "holy" private insurance that "so many people don't want to lose", are sucking the living daylights out of the middleclass and the poor, is the right thing to do. And Liz' is calling it what it is: CORRUPTION. Neither Obama, nor Hillary, nor anyone else besides her or Sanders have called it that.

                                                 Please, you all. Save your Bernie vs. Lizzy for AFTER we defeated BIDEN.
                                                We can of course discuss specific points, and disagree. But this whole cancel "culture" will only hurt Bernie et Al.

                                                Every totalitarian argument against Elizabeth Warren = JOE BIDEN WINS.

                                                Every totalitarian argument against Tulsi Gabbard = JOE BIDEN WINS.

                                                Anyone who continues to get all totalitarian, instead having a healthy conversation about policies, is feeding bad faith trolls.

                                                Warren has been talking many progressive ideas. That does get the ideas promoted to more people irregardless of how Warren follows through.
                                                Bernie will need Elizabeth's followers to join him to win. I would be for Warren as VP. Sanders delivers inspiration, Warren provides explanations.
                                                I realize that a lot of progressives like Tulsi Gabbard. Tulsi doesn't have the mass appeal of Warren for this election. We need Sanders to win.

If you as an American citizen who is visiting another country who practices a type of M4A system as a human right and you need medical care , large or small, you are taken care of without a medical bankruptcy hardship.

                                                Rashad Robinson pointed out, in a Democracy Now! discussion, that no candidate can promise any of their policies will be enacted, because it's still up to Congress to enact the legislation. With an anti-American, Retropublican-controlled Senate, no Democrat's policies will pass, unless they are totally pro-corporation and super rich.
