        Man this guy is just straight lying about supporting medicare for all. He voted against the importation of much cheaper prescription drugs from Canada, while recieving some of the most money from pharma companies in congress. He's a phony

                              He’s soooo right about the Russians’ strategy of using us against ourselves. If we are so divided that we can’t come together to pass legislation that protects us, our children and our future...if we can’t create a society in which we truly care about one another as humans and have each other’s well-being in mind, then we are absolutely doomed and we will be the cause of our own self-undoing. 😔 No bombs or wars required.

                                          Diversity of ideas has nothing to do with color, I respect his ideas and why we’ve been led to believe that but we can’t find division by pointing out our differences penises and vagina I get poor and rich I get but racial issues aside I know there a good and bad ppl of every shade. There are stupid ppl of all colors I think he should focus on the race the love all of that bank of their stupidity leave the race aside much as you can, I get it but I think after a retard we should get a genius not one who says what he thinks we want to hear some beliefs are best kept close until the time is right. Don’t be afraid to go in the turf and not bring out the race now that’s strong and that’s probably what your mom or most mom tells us no matter what you look like is inside what matters I mean with Trump it was what was inside is bank account but still I love for him to drop that and challenge them in their policies, corruption and segregation without mentioning he is black brown whatever see how they react. Just saying ppl voted for trump because they tired of the bs I didn’t but I get it so far this is the only candidate I would consider

                                              I hate that I struggle with Booker's "positivism" it feels fake...and that is frustrating. He comes off too polished for me. When he talks about hard feels fake. Not saying it is. Not saying I don't agree.

                                                trump's never punched anyone in the face nor has he ever been punched in the face. take it from someone who was bullied and came out the other end. i'd never feel bad punching that imbecile over and over and over and i'll take the felony charge with pride

                                                      have a great bunch of candidates. Bernie, Warren, Booker, Yang and even Tulsi. The mission now is actually getting one elected over bullshit like Biden, Trump, Harris, Pete and co.

Watch that Street Fight movie on Amazon Prime Video for free - it's worth it. I don't even agree with him on many policies, but he's really a neat guy. I used to live in the city he served as mayor, Newark.

                                                          So true, we have the ability and choice to fix things. And I wonder why we're failing! Yes, we allow it. Many are unaware, others play along and drink the kool aid. The country can not agree on one thing. But the proof should be on the facts. And we should be more united. But there are systems in place to keep people devided. Even from other countries. Most notably Russia. Which keep people on their political team like in football. So these cheerleaders will not leave their team no matter if their wrong. Trump supporters will gladly go down with the ship. And give the row boat to their captain. America is upside down, bunkers.

                                                          America is a Plutocracy, the government is as corrupt as the one in Mexico. Soldiers are treated as a comodety, veterans are discarded. Because the government sees the population as a renewable source of bodies. With great disconnect, no feelings for grieving families. War is BIG business. We have so much war surplus, it's being dumped on cops. Cops over armed! Cops with equipment that now feed their adrenaline and itchy fingers. They wake up praying for someone to look at them wrong.

                                                          Billions are being wasted with government embezzlement. Funneling money from one agency to the next. Billions have been wasted in mismanagement and misspending. This is all public information and some is leaked information. We have the money for Universal Basic Income, Medical and Dental Insurance plus College. The {BILLIONS MISSPENT}.

                                                          We have about 122 million tax payers. In layman's terms we need our money better managed. We can pool pay for College, medical, dental and universal basic income.

                                                          The way to a better economy is more money exchanging hands in the same country. Driving down wealthy money hoarders. You know this (U.B.I.) will improve our economy. By people having access and transportation. To jobs to aquire physical and social skills. And improve in their jobs and afford to start a career.

                                                          This will give a platform to creative thinkers. That will otherwise die off never changing the world for the better. The list goes on, you can not deny the benefits.

                                                          So the question is how. Well.. when people keep calling it free this, free that. It sends the wrong idea. Nothing is free, we the people will pay for these privilege; we already HAVE have the money. We need government transparency with how they spend our taxes. And a team of financial advisors. We need everyone questioning. Where do my taxes go?

                                                          United States still maintains nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad. Who pays for this?

                                                          At one point $36 billion of federal and state funds was wasted on improper Medicaid payments, including fraudulent or incorrectly billed claims. Who knows what it is now.

                                                          Billions wasted on infrastructure projects every year due to poor planning, dense bureaucracy, and failure to retain staff. The average amount wasted globally is about $97 million for every billion dollars spent.

                                                          Government Embezzelers. And billions from some of the world's most powerful figures, many closely-tied to heads of state like Justin Trudeau, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Queen Elizabeth. Were revealed to be hiding their fortunes in tax havens around the world with the leak of 13.4 million files, called the Paradise Papers. The offshore schemes that cost billions and billions in tax evasion also implicate multinational corporations like Nike and Apple.

                                                          In another instance of governments giving tax dollars to a profitable industry, U.S. states continue to subsidize film productions with tax exemptions that rarely affect film location decisions and often provide negligible returns on investment. Louisiana's subsidy cost taxpayers $1 billion in the past decade, while New York provided funds as high as $21 million to 74 productions in just the second quarter of 2017.

                                                          State and federal governments have spent $37.3 billion and counting on the war on drugs that haven't produced noticeable results in more than 40 years. That's without counting the funds spent curbing drug production abroad, as in Afghanistan, where the government has spent more than $8 billion on counternarcotics efforts since 2002, but failed to stop the nation's rapid increase in poppy production.

                                                          I mean... just Google. where united states wastes tax money. Or something like that.

                                                          Petroleum is no longer needed for fuel for vehicles. But the oil companies have bought out innovative alternative fuel small businesses. And bought or acquired patents from inventors. That would allow vehicles to get an isane amount of gas mileage. And other innovative invitations. That could have propelled the conbustion engine out of the stone age. Mind blowing stuff that was invented decades ago. With their patents the oil company can now take down, blacklist and destroy anyone. That even thinks about a similar idea. Mind boggling! I don't think I got to say how the government has had a hand in this.

                                                          I mean....:

                                                          The list is infinite!

                                                          Four million. That's how many Americans the US Census Bureau estimates live on five island territories of the United States.

                                                          Millions of them are of voting age. Many are veterans or active military. But they cannot vote to elect their commander in chief.

                                                          People born in Guam, the Virgin Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and Puerto Rico are all Americans. They vote in US congressional elections and presidential primaries.

                                                          But Americans born in these territories can't vote for president. Not unless they move to the mainland.

                                                          You tell me if we're treated any different. Than people in any other shit hole country. We have it good, but we need a revolt and government reform and revamp. The government needs to be reminded who they serve. We need our priorities straight. Because other countries follow our examples. Right now is a clown show. And we can not help other countries efficiently. A rule in a fire, is save yourself. Get yourself out of harm so you can then help others. With America up in flames. What can we do? So our focus should be on this corrupt Putocratic government.

In the 5 minutes and 48 seconds it takes Cory to respond, he never even gets close to answering Trevor's question. It's fine to invoke ethical principles and American ideals and all that in order to frame a response to a question, but it's a very different thing to use such rhetoric to *avoid* answering a question, and that's what it feels like Cory was doing here. It would have been great if Trevor had asked him again at 15:47, "So how do you differ from the other candidates on Medicare For All?"
