  1. Girl was on FIRE. On CNN they interviewed 9 Iowans and 8 of them said she won. Like no hemming or hawing, just "Warren" "Warren" "Warren"……
    Bernie reminded me why I love him a few times but mostly it was the same ol' long strings of numbers that average people cannot put into context. I mean it's seriously a waste of breath to say "the ______ industry took in 367 billion dollars over the past _ years" etc. Is 367 million a lot? My buddy and I were commenting about that during Bernie's first answer, and I said, "Now Warren will come in and say exactly what he did, but with names instead of numbers" and that's what she did immediately.
    I'm sorry, I know Bernie's actually more Progressive, I want what he has to offer and I probably will vote for him in the primary, but I do not expect him to be the nominee anymore. I sure would love a S/W or W/S ticket though!

  2. She is right… but also why does she flip flop on some issues?? In addition we still have to remember she will be taking corporate PAC money if she wins the Democratic Primary. Warren talks the talks but won’t walk the walk according to her corporate money is okay as long as it’s in the General Election….?!! Wtf! Warren was a Republican and her voting record had been all over the place, it seems to me she goes where ever the wind takes her….and during 2016 she didn’t endorse Bernie because she was promised possibly being Hilary’s Vice President…

  3. I liked Maryanne Williamson the best but even as a libertarian who hates taxes, she has a point. Nobody should go broke because they need to pay for an ill child even broke criminals get free health care in prison.

  4. Our White Trash Demagogue President, who is ostensibly emotionally unstable, is going to be flushed by Warren, or one of these potential candidates.

  5. Health care costs are high so the immigrants can get free health care. Some one has to pay for it. Cuts in medicare hurt seniors, but the gov has to take care of 13 million illegals. F the old people, they don't pay taxes anymore.

  6. No begging in Canada. Still have the biggest middle class by percentage in the world today. The lineups your Republicans talk about is BS cousins. They know how to scare you (the GOP) for all the wrong reasons.

  7. We need Andrew Yang.. not you. 1000$ well solve more problem then you think. Charge the rich more? And charge the poor less? I thought it suppose to be free? U don't make sense

  8. Planks of the Commiecrat platform: molestation of the American family unit, turning the entire U.S. into Calizuela with a flood of 2-digit IQs from central America, establishment of a Communist N. American Union, elimination of American businesses, taxing the US middle class out of existence, the racist dewhitification of America, covering America with tents, trash, disease, and piles of human excrement; molestation of our schools, promoting the Communist Fed's fake, fiat currency, gun confiscation, an entire battery of Commie redistribution programs, & a flakka addict on every corner.

  9. I'm going to call it: Liz Warren will be the Democrats' nominee for 2020.

    Hope she has a plan for the fake president's name-calling and lies.That's all he has.

  10. 💥The richest most powerful country in the world and health care cant be a right for your dad and mom and your kids? Lol that's crazy!

  11. 2019 and America is still debating whether people should have healthcare or not, while trump donors are raking it in…. Go Warren!

  12. 💥🙋‍♂️ALOT OF GREAT CANDIDATES IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BUT ELIZABETH WARREN HAS THE CLEAREST PLANS READY TO BE SET IN MOTION DOWN TO THE DETAILS IF ASKED SHE WILL EXPLAIN TO YOU CLEARLY. LOVE THAT!

  13. Trump went broke after blowing through his inheritance and billions of dollars because he managed his money and businesses like a complete psychopath. 😄

  14. If they grab the guns like they talk about we're going to really need their fabulous healthcare to have all of our gunshot wounds treated by being such defenseless victims. I think I'll set up a regular carpool route to the hospital with my wounded neighbors.

  15. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have a habit of agreeing on almost everything that the other says, at this point, as long as one of them wins the Democratic nomination, then the country can finally advance and take it's place as the best country in the world, also once Moscow Mitch is gone so we can secure our elections.

  16. People get out in vote 2020 blue wave coming goodbye trump and the Republicans party. Bernie Sanders president of the United states!

  17. She is so good. I used to not like Warren, thought her time had passed. But boy was I wrong! She's got my vote!

  18. Lung cancer survivor here. Got it second hand ft my mother. Never smoked a day in my life. Was 28 when I was diagnosed. Has a left lung pneumonectomy March of 2018. $177k and will face medical cost for the rest of my life to stay healthy and alive. No chemo or radiation needed. I was extremely lucky and blessed but there are alot like me that don't make it or are financially wiped for life because of a illness that is no fault of our own.

  19. Healthcare is like the roads everyone can drive on, the water everyone drinks. A basic need that when you take the profit out of it, make it a service not a commodity, will cost less.
    Sure the wealthier people can pay for health insurance. I live in a country where there's both private and public healthcare.
    We have a higher life expectancy and levels of good health. Public health care pays off.

  20. Lovely woman, smart, direct and has already done A TON of work by scrutinizing big corporations, banks and corrupt CEOs.

  21. I have "good/great health insurance"; I'm still in debt for thousands of dollars for an operation I needed almost a decade ago for a congenital condition.

    FDA-approved naltrexone, in a low dose, can normalize the immune system — helping those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and central nervous system disorders.

    “I started on LDN as a patient in the MS clinical trial at UCSF. I continued on it and just had my MRI check up and have found that my lesions are disappearing. I have less lesions in my brain and the ones that do remain are smaller. This is just AMAZING and WONDERFUL news!”

    “Just 3 months of LDN & chemo and the stage IV bladder cancer is GONE….no scar tissue, nothing. Just gone! The doctors can’t explain it, they are baffled. The radiologist actually thought he had the wrong patient’s scan and asked the oncologist what on earth my Dad was taking. We told everyone….LDN!!! There is no other explanation to this medical miracle!!!”

    “I Have been on LDN for 2 months for primary progressive MS. For the past year and a half, I have been nearly blind. I would put on a pair of 2.75 reading glasses, then put a second pair of 3.25 on top of that. LDN has restored my vision and I couldn’t be more excited, as I’m driving again.”

    “My dad has been using LDN for PD since October 2004 with great success. I have started a Yahoo Group called ‘Healing Parkinsons’.”

    “I have had Crohn’s for 30 years (progressed after surgery) and have been unsuccessful with many treatments until now. I refused to go on Remicade or Humira because I feared the extreme side effects. LDN provided me with reduction of symptoms on the first day!”

    “I was diagnosed with SPMS and transverse myelitis and the first 8 months used Betaseron and in those first 8 months I went from using a walker, wheelchair to a Hoveround power chair. Then I started taking LDN and now I don’t have to use anything to help me walk or get around.”

    “The foot-long fistula (think of it as a really deep ulcer) that was connecting my small intestine to my colon is gone! My last colonoscopy was in February and in the three months of being on LDN, it healed.”

    “I have scleroderma, CREST syndrome and have been on LDN for almost 15 months. I also have Sjögren’s, and fibromyalgia. I have to say that within a week of starting LDN, I felt like I had my life back.”

    What’s is LDN, and why did I prescribe it for her?
    LDN is a medication that is very unusual.  It doesn’t work the way most drugs work.
    It evokes the natural intelligence in the body.
    Naltrexone blocks the opioid system of the body.  In high dose, it can help a heroin addict stay clean, because they can’t get high.
    In very low doses, (hence the name low dose naltrexone, or LDN), it tricks the body to produce
    more of its own natural pain blocking chemicals called endorphins and enkephalins.
    Some of these natural  molecules modulate the immune system.  LDN has been shown to reduce the level of inflammatory signaling molecules called cytokines.
    That’s why research suggests that LDN  is helpful in many chronic pain states, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and other chronic illnesses.
    So she started LDN. We do it at low low dose initially.  She called me when she had been on the therapeutic dose for about 2 weeks.  The burning pain was gone. She still had aching in her joints but it was tolerable.
    So what does that mean?  Did LDN work only partially?
    This is very important
    So pay close attention.
    She hadn’t been on it long enough to know.
    LDN, as I said, stimulates the body’s own pain blocking chemicals, and it reduces low grade inflammation that can cause oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction.

  23. With your healthcare plan u Democrats want it will Destroy America and u want to give FRES HEALTHCARE TO MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF UNDOCUMENTED I'LLEGALS AKA OPEN BORDERS PAID FOR BY US THE AMERICAN CITIZENS WHILE U TAKE AWAY OUR PRIVATE HEALTHCARE AND U WANT TO GIVE FREE EVERYTHING TO I'LLEGALS SND GIVE US A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT TAKE OVER YOUR NWO AGENDA TO FLOOD AMERICA WITH ILLEGALS TO DESTROY AMERICA AND TURN AMERICA INTO VENEZUELA OR SOMALIA WHILE I'LLEGALS LIVE LIKE KINGS IN AMERICA.NO THANKS I LOVE MY FREEDOM UNDER OUR GREAT WINNING PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO IS DESTROYING YOUR NWO AGENDA COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM.

  24. We just got a bill for almost 7000
    Of which our insurance company paid… 90%.
    We do not want to lose that.
    I love Warren, and believe Biden/Warren in the ticket.
    Basic human rights of decency, compassion, honor, ad strength of character is what matters here.
    A compromise will be in the works.

  25. She is absolutely right: health insurance companies are about taking in as much money as they can and paying out as little as they can!

  26. when you get a major illness, the cost of that will be much, much more than anything you save in taxes, by not having health care.
    When the number one cause of personal bankruptcy is medical expenses, something is Very Wrong with your system. When your citizens pay more for health care than anyone else in the world and yet you do not have the number one health care system, something is very wrong.
    What do you get for your taxes? A gigantic military, ratting infrastructure, gigantic financial benefits for the very rich and giveaways to corporations, while reducing food programs for the poor, a rich country with huge deep pockets of developing world poverty. that is what you get for the tax money you pay, in such a corrupt country.

  27. health care costs wiped out my 401-k, my IRAs, and the annuity I set up for way later. I now survive on $1000 a month from Social Security. I worked 40 years, but because the last 3 years I worked part time because I was physically unable to hold down a 40 hour a week job due to my disability. had I been working 40 hours a week I wouldn't need to 'survive' I'd actually be able to collect a living wage. no food stamps no housing assistance, I get medicaid/medicare that's it.

  28. Healthcare is not a human right. Healthcare is a service provided by a doctor. You can’t demand that another person provide you a service. This is a redistribution of wealth to reduce the middle class and allow more government control of our people.

  29. WHEN SOMEONE LIES…….THEY ARE A LIAR!!    THEY CAN NOT BE TRUSTED!!     THEY CAN NOT BE BELIEVED!!   THEY CAN NOT BE SUPPORTED!!   DO YOU SUPPORT LIARS????    WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SOMEONE THAT YOU KNOW IS A LIAR???     THEY LIED TO YOU ONCE……WHEN WILL THE NEXT LIE COME????     WE DO NOT NEED A LIAR RUNNING FOR POTUS!!         ELIZABETH WARREN IS A LIAR!!!                TRUMP 2020

  30. I don't know anyone who went broke over health care costs. If they couldn't afford the bill they just didn't pay it.
    I do know of a lot of people who went broke, lost their home, over gambling debts.
    Since most of the casinos around are run or managed for Native American Indian Tribes. And Warren is at least 1024th Native American, maybe, does she feel any guilt for the enormous & devastating impact on many peoples lives, and does she have a plan for that?

  31. Daton shooter was a Warren supporter and voted democrat in last 7 primaries, was a Satan worshiper. El Paso shooter voted Democrat in last 2 primaries.

  32. Costs Costs COSTS Communism has NEVER worked anywhere SUSPENDING IMMIGRATION for awhile that would help….

  33. republicans are ok with people dying because they cant afford their health care premiums and deductibles,,they only care about protecting the insurance and drug companies billion dollar profits.

  34. She never answered whose taxes will go up to fund this plan.. Soon there will be no middle class. It will be lower class heavy tax ridden citizens paying for their own healthcare which will cost way more once the government steps in and the wealthy class that will somehow get to opt out just like the government officials got with Obamacare!

  35. Most people know back in 2016 that Hillary was corrupt and not fit to be president, but Warren betrayed the candidate for the people (bernie) and endorsed Hillary. Warren is just another Hillary, maybe just slightly better, but not enough to be president.
