    Go Bernie! People don't realize what a mess the current health care insurance system is until they have a medical condition that is very expensive..
    Most people just focus on monthly premium costs. Since most people have low yearly incomes, even that is a problem and what they complain about the most.
    We need Medicare for All so that the cost of health care is spread across the entire population. Who will get sick is a lottery you don't want to win.

    Climate change is kidding! We had a tornado in Washington and 40 mph winds in the interior. The average temperature where we live used to be in the70s during the summer, and 50s or so during the winter. We used to joke about having a single day of real summer weather. Now, we're above 90 and below freezing for the past several years. Snow on the Olympics disappears during the summer. I don't remember that ever happening before, and we've been here 30+ years.

    I was a huge Bernie supporter until he claimed that white people don’t know what it’s like to struggle. I fooled myself into thinking he was different, but he’s just another delusional left wing liar, and this is coming from someone who didn’t even vote for Trump and never will. And this show is just blatant propaganda at this point. Colbert could not be less funny nowadays, and he has lost all of his creativity and originality.

    The lunatic fringe idea is that good health care is the preserve of the rich and not a basic right bestowed by a country to its citizens at minimal cost. Single payer healthcare systems ARE the norm across the western world and have been so for the last 50 or 60 years at least, everywhere except the USA. I live in Australia and I cannot conceive how it is possible that someone with health issues can be personally bankrupted servicing their medical expenses!

    Yes! Bernie has the vision! Don’t be so scared by pundits who call him a “socialist” as if it were a slur, that’s just the status quo shaking in its boots because the corporate power structures know that they may have to be held accountable if someone like him takes power in America, so they try and scare good Americans with words like that without actually listening to the words and the message and mission being communicated.
    We need to work with the people who were hurt that supported Hillary Clinton, I voted for her. Because a lot of the more diehard “Hillary-Democrats” seem to think or assume that Bernie Sanders is a bad person or a bad figure not just “because he’s a man” or “he’s white”, but also because of that Russian meddling and attacking of Hillary and her campaign and blamed it on Bernie or his supporters throwing a monkey wrench in their system, and then acting misogynistic and blaming Bernie for it, but he is not at all for that, he is very feminist adjacent and would be a much better person in office than our current orange buffoon. Yeah, Bernie Sanders folks, he’s really FOR EVERYONE, he wants to make this country and world a truly better place for all of us and our grandchildren.
    We must Be the Change We Need to See in the World. Let’s life in a world with compassion and empathy and love for our fellow brothers and sisters of humanity sharing this great land together. We have far more similarities in our wants and needs and intentions for success and belonging and happiness, as people than we do dwelling on our differences that which will be used by people like Trump to divide us so they can rob us and our children blind. Bernie isn’t anti-women, if it comes to Bernie or Trump in 2020 (if he’s not impeached by then) and the confused democrats still think that “Bernie Bros” were a real thing so much so that they turn off of Bernie himself, than that’s just stupid on behalf of everything that we must protect in such a situation. Sure, I would love Ocasio-Cortez to run or Biden or Beto too, but Bernie should not be ruled out just because he unknowingly got roped into this “Bernie Bros hating Clinton-Gals” or something BS like that. Bernie supports everyone, he is a human of empathy and of compassion and caring, who actually has a relationship with his children and grandchildren and wants good things for their’s and your future alike. We truly can make this world a better place if we stop and think to live an existence embodying two simple facets, Peace and Love.
    I mean listen, a few wise-Beatles once said, “And, in The End, The Love You Take, is Equal to The Love, You Make” and “All You Need Is Love”

    Raising minimum wage does nothing. Canada did so, while I was away on vacation, and didn't know. By the time I got back, prices had skyrocketed and I was wondering what the heck was going on. Everything is so expensive now.
    When minimum wage increases, so does the price... of everything.

    • Jose Mendoza
      Jose Mendoza Месяц назад

      +Moe F. that's not how the regulations would work. We can do better. There's something called market value and we can institute something where the only way businesses can raise prices is because of inflation. The businesses would be required to maintain a price around a range of what they currently have and if they want to they can go lower (for the companies whose prices are higher than normal and want to compete) but not to low so they don't bankrupt small business and of course if a company has high prices they won't sell as well and the instinct of a consumer is a fair price and quality and sometimes the more economical but working options. In reality the regulations would apply more to big box stores because they're the ones that do the most cheating. In return this type of policy would most likely end up giving more small business an easier chance to climb the ladder while people who buy main brand will still go buy it anyways so they'll go with the more expensive option.

    I love Bernie and he was in 2016 my champion in the blue corner... but let's talk real for a second. When he says : "Trump's affinity for dictators all over the world based not just on his authoritarian tendencies but maybe financial interests in Russia and Saudi Arabia", in truth truth, like street cred truth truth, America always loved the authoritarian countries for financial interests. Now here here, some of you might say that's not true, well here's a list of the authoritarian countries supported by the United-States of America until this day. So, can we really blame the guy for doing what you guys always kinda did and.. still doing ? Question for the philosophers.
