Bernie Sanders slams Howard Schultz

Bernie Sanders slams Howard Schultz


Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: “We’re going to win” So senator Sanders, you’re gonna run for president. I am going to run for president. That’s correct. What’s gonna be different this time? We’re gonna win. We are gonna also launch what I think is unprecedented In modern American history and that is a grassroots movement. John to lay the groundwork for Transforming the economic and political life of this country. That’s what’s different And that’s your theory, which is that without the groundswell without the grassroots. You can’t change the politic. That’s exactly right Look young. Somebody can come before you and say look I want to do a and I want to do B and that’s fine but at the end of the day the only way that real change takes place is when millions of people stand up fight back and say Enough is enough. We’re gonna have a government that works for all of us. Not just a few but bottom line for me is I think Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: “We’re going to win” It is absolutely imperative that Donald Trump are be defeated because I think it is unacceptable and unamerican to be frank with you that we have a president who is a pathological liar and it gives me no pleasure to say that but It’s true. We have a president who is a racist who is a sexist who is a xenophobe Who is doing what no president In our lifetimes has come close to doing and that is trying to divide us up But all of your opponents will say we’ve gotta get Donald Trump out of the White House. That’s not your distinguishing characteristic So that is not my distinguishing characteristic. I think what I am very proud of in and since this campaign John is a continuation of what we did in 2016 you will recall you may recall that in 2016 many of the ideas that I talked about Medicare for all raising the minimum wage To $15 an hour making public colleges and universities Tuition-free all of those ideas people was all Bernie. They’re so radical They are extremely American people just won’t accept those ideas Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: “We’re going to win” Well, you know what’s happened that over three years all of those ideas and many more are now part of the political mainstream So you’re saying the party came your way? Well, I don’t want to say that I think Most would say is that your argument then against your competitors, which is I was Medicare for all before Medicare for always cool haha, I guess that’s one way of looking at but it’s no I know many of the people certainly the senators who are running and Without exception. I am fond of them. There are some cases my friends Let me ask you on your Medicare for all you have talked about the fact that polls show 70% are in favor of Medicare for all but that number drops to 37 if somebody hears Private insurance is going to go away which is what your which is what your plan offers So I guess my question is your offering something that the polling shows people can get very spook very quickly No well, but that’s because we’re going to be taking on the insurance companies and the drug companies We’re gonna spend a whole lot of money distorting what we believe in the bottom line is the average middle class family will save money will spend less money on health care will have more choice and Have broader coverage than it’s currently the case the other challenge to your health care plan will be cost. People will say my goodness There’s no way this is everybody’s gonna get covered and there are the estimates Help us explain the truth no more out-of-pocket expenses no more deductibles The cost of prescription drugs is going to go down. We expand the kinds of coverage available for senior citizens It’s a good deal Howard Schultz has now said he would not run as an independent if the Democrats moderate Why is Howard Schultz on every television station in this country, why are you quoting Howard Schultz because he was a billionaire All right. There are a lot of people I know personally Who work hard for a living to make 40 $50,000 zia who know a lot more about politics than all due respect as mr Schultz but because we have a corrupt political system anybody who was a billionaire who can throw a lot of TV ads on television Suddenly becomes very very credible Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: “We’re going to win” So what mr. Schultz, what is he blackmailing the Democratic Party if you don’t nominate Bernie Sanders, he’s not gonna run Well, I don’t think we should succumb to that kind of blackmail the other reason is that he represents an argument that some people make which is If you’re worried about Donald Trump The Democratic Party to win voters in various parts of the country needs to pick somebody who is not so radical That’s also what his theory? Well, I think his deeper theory is hey, I’m a billionaire Leave me alone and let me make as much money as I can without paying my fair share of taxes. He’s a billionaire It’s thinking of running for president. Something is a very famous guy. That’s that is a problem with our political system You have to appreciate the fact that Bernie brings up the point There’s other individuals you make far less money than Howard Schultz to understand the political system a lot better the point that We shouldn’t be someone is credible just because they make a lot of money. Yeah, he may understand a fair amount about investing He might understand a lot about running a business, but that doesn’t necessarily means he understands the political system There can be Public school teachers and professors that know far more about politics than a lot of businessmen Some of the businessmen may know again how to run a business they might understand so my deals with Finance and Accounting and a little bit of economics, but the idea that Successful businessmen make great politicians. It’s problematic. A lot of these individuals may lack and understanding a basic history, which is essential for Developing a correct opinion of politics today if you don’t have an understanding in the past Faulty understanding of the present and so political opinions that are important history are going to Definitely be less accurate less grounded on reality Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: “We’re going to win” Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: “We’re going to win” Lot of academics aren’t rich But they understand reality and intercepted political system and so I’m glad that Bernie brings up those points Howard Schultz knows far less about politics than some individuals who knows you make $40,000 a year and the idea that Howard Schultz received a lot of hype just because it’s a Bernie Sanders announces 2020 run: “We’re going to win” Starbucks of CEO and it’s because he’s extremely wealthy that’s problematic for so many reasons and it’s good that Bernie brings those ideas up
