  • Judith Aldridge says:

    Buttigieg should drop out of the race if this is his keynote policy. All he is offering is a public option for what Medicare is today and it will go bankrupt. Why you might ask? Because all of the healthy young people will stick with their current health care insurance as they mostly cover things that Medicare does not. Then all of the chronically sick and those with pre-existing conditions will have to go onto Medicare as it is all they can afford: The result is that it cannot take in as much in revenue as it pays out to service providers; thus bankruptsy.
    Anything that does not have Bernie's name on it is not true Medicare For All, even Elizabeth's version is not the same as Bernie's.
    You have a Human Right to affordable health care and only Bernie can get you it. Do not listen to the Republican Party or the Democratic Party as both of them support Private Health Care Insurance because they get big handouts from the industry and also the Pharmaceutical Industry: They will never want you to have decent health care that you can afford.

  • What made social security work for FDR is that EVERYONE was included. Medicare "for all that want it" without eliminating the horrible private insurance companies – who fight against health care for anyone at every opportunity just won't work. Make it Medicare for everyone. and for those who are stupid enough to want private insurance to fight with when they need care can have it, good luck to getting care paid for.

  • Wow, Mika. You must really want Biden to be the nominee to call Warren's plan for healthcare "fanciful." Senator Warren is a lot of things, but I would never call her "fanciful." You purport to be all in for women, but when it comes right down to it, you're not.

  • I am rooting for Mayor Pete to take Iowa! He has certainly been underestimated but I am proud and impressed by his intelligence, policies and service to the country. He will get my vote!

  • Whoever wins, I hope Pete will be working in the WH. He would be an excellent chief of staff. He does remind me of George Stephanopoulos circa 1992.

  • Agree with Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
    A War Veteran Ivy league Mayor with brain, experience & humility.🇺🇸
    He understands unity, national & international geopolitic policies for stronger America.
    The energetic and classy 38 year old is not perfect but he can unite American -Black, Brown, white, Yellow & Mix Races Americans. #PeteForUnitedAmeica #Pete2020
    He will be an amazing President for all Americans 2020.

  • Biden is not a good candidate for the presidency. He is too old, which is worse than too young. He does not have the stamina anymore to be a good president. Yes, Biden has more common sense and decency than Trump, but that is a very low bar. I am not convinced by Buttigieg but he is a lot better than Biden and more than a lot better than Trump.

  • 9:55 …. you all just let the statement breeze on by? I thought it was a done deal, said CNN and MSNbc? Knowing what he knows?

  • Mayor Pete is the best candidate for President. Everyone knows that House DEM what someone from the House, but the American people don't want someone from the House of DEM. They one someone young, refreshing, and complete intelligent thoughts. Mayor Pete cares about everyone in America. He doesn't care if you are REP, DEM, and etc.

  • Only thing I disagree on here, and it's not like I'm anti-Buttigieg or anything despite hardcore progressives thinking he's the devil or something, is that Warren's plan doesn't explain where the financing comes from or that that it's some sort of ridiculous pipe dream. While I do agree getting any M4A plan through the Senate is neigh-impossible with McConnell in charge, if he's ever ousted, and the majority becomes Democrats, it's not too ridiculous since most of the people replacing those GOP members will be newer, less-political members. And that would change the political geography by magnitudes.

  • Pete’s comments on Trumpism, the cynicism that nothing really matters and breaking things is somehow inherently entertaining, was really profound.

  • pete is making some great points but he's still a small town mayor. can he get the job done? of course he'd be much better than trump, but so would others with more experience (and i don't mean biden)… so far for me, it's sanders/tulsi or a sanders/pete for electability.

  • Melissa Watkins says:

    I really think Pete is the BEST candidate for now, but even if Hillary were in Office and Pete was running in "normal" times… I would still think he would be a great President for the next decade

  • His rise is impressive but in the clutch the religious African- American base would be very reticent showing up at the polls (if he were to win the Nomination)..the world needs to go back to Normal..We all need Biden

  • Sorry dude, I'm a pass you sound like republican light…and we black people know your history in South bend…most of your decisions as mayor have been racist…just another liar

  • infamyseemsshort says:

    Wow Pete lying and being misleading about M4A. I’m so glad a person like you, mayor, are taking money from these insurance companies and pharmaceutical corporations. It makes it easy to discount your “thoughts” on the subject of healthcare. And it’s laughable that you think you offer an vision of Biden’s. You are just a younger and gayer version of the centrist Biden plays.

  • Mayor pete is not a progressive and is not the best candidate to take on trump. Mayor pete sold himself to big pharma and the insurance companies in a heartbeat and is all buddy buddy with the robot zuckaberg.

  • Will the system they use in Australia with low income on medicare it if they can't afford private health and once you earn so much it will be cheaper to be on private health with more benefits that way everyone has basic health care no matter how much they earn and if you still want private health your free to do that you just don't pay for the medicare thru your tax while on private

  • he's the one I trust to be President the most. he's not just a platform for one thing like the others and if you think he isn't saying anything it's because you're not listening

  • Trump needs to be removed from office. My vote is for removed because he's unable to perform the duties of the office. But the WH has to do that.

  • Miss. Discovery says:

    Male Poop Pete is a filthy sodomite, dirty liar, and sick bum who stopped a highly beneficial pro-life from.entering South Bend. And more bad stuff. See my channel.

  • There is nothing fanciful about Medicare for all. If we the people can ever get our voice back in Congress it would be easy. It works in every other developed nation on earth that uses it.

  • Mckinley Williams says:

    PEACE,,, MSNBC,, LET MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG KNOW THAT THE BIRD CHIRPING IS ANNOYING WHEN HE IS COMMUNICATING, HIS MESSAGE AND FOR ME IT'S A TURN OFF, PEACE..

  • Alabama Mothman says:

    There is no question you and ANY democrat will be removed from office also. And when the Barr report is released, there is no question many democrats will be going to prison.

  • man i love this guy but i fear he wont make it but i could very easily see a ticket wish either sanders or warren as president and him as vice…would give him some more legit chops..i would vote either

  • What the heck was that framing?! Also, his numbers aren't realistic either. His plan would also keep Medicare denigrated with providers. Why not give Medicare for all as the default and let people keep supplemental insurance like most industrialised nations in the world?

  • I am liking Buttigieg even more. I would love to see him get the nomination and then take down Traitor Trump. But America is petty. Can his sexual orientation be a non-issue? While I hope so, I'm afraid the country is not there yet.

  • Trump needs to be removed before he does any more damage.
    As for medicare for all it would be cheaper for both workers and employers than private insurance especially for smaller companies and the self employed who are unable to negotiate bulk discounts.

  • Blah Blah Bland, feel-good sentences that offer nothing but establishment Democrat, poster-on-the-wall positive affirmations. Make America Think Harder. MATH. – an Army Veteran, Yang Gang 2020.

  • Stop attacking Warren you fool!!!! You have .000003 % to win the nomination and you are hurting the likely nominee. Shut up. Say your piece without attacking and pose for the next election, Mayor Pete.

  • Why don't msnbc just get a fire going get a pipe and biscuits and sing Pete we love you Pete feet up your at home here. Go Bernie go Warren.

  • To America's Black voters. Remember slavery is over, your vote isn't for sale. Whomever you decide to roll with, listen and read carefully. It's election time and this is when your going to hear things that your going to believe. Nothing but the end of slavery in America has happen for people of color, there still making money off us. Its called prison.how do you get a black father to not pay child support . Lock him up ,your children's new name, food stamps.

  • there's no question, the USA needs a civil war because each side believes they're right. Fight to the death, winner takes all.

  • Was surprised to hear that my conservative grandparents are planning to vote for Mayor Pete and even contributed to his campaign — first time they've ever contributed to any Presidential candidate. So yeah, maybe his appeal will carry. I hope so.

  • Every one with insurance wants it of course, how about those who don't have insurance or can't afford it? We all need health insurance Pet. Health care for ALL, everyone. I have Medicare and love it.

  • It's chilly out there! I'm always happy to listen to someone intelligent with a calm demeanor. So tired of the WH histrionics.

  • Jonathan Raithel says:

    Biden claims that his experience makes him the best choice, but I digress. Biden’s record clearly shows that he is a conservative centrist who believes that the Obama years and the 90s were utopian ages. And all his contacts just indicate that Biden wants to go “back to normal” instead of actually repairing the damage Trump and the Tea Party has created.

  • I like Pete and could live with him as president, but there are issues with having a "two-tier" health insurance system. It discourages actual equality in health care. On the other hand, ANYTHING we do to increase health insurance rate is progress.

    Don't forget a supported President, of qualified, honest, purposeful, respectable, staff and advisers, There is no "I" in team

  • Kathleen Austin says:

    Biden is very respectable…qualified. Pete has a fresh new approach. The disabled and social security recepitants need a raise!!! No one is talking about this!!! Help our veterns!!!!🇺🇸

  • U know what I think I think that everyone should put there ideas together and get a an come together as 0ne agree to disagree to make the country work everyone has a plan they should pray read and meditate come together and put this country back into proper order

  • Very adult-like, Mayor Pete … I keep waiting on some foolish statement (media conditioning) no matter who is speaking, and he remains solid every time.

  • I like Elizabeth Warren; HOWEVER, she is a U.S. Senator and does not have to use Medicare!! If she (and Bernie) did, they would realize how F***d up that system is. I pay over $200 a month from my Social Security. Then, I pay through my business (or employment if and when I am employed). I also have to pay over $200 a month to my Medicare Supplement plan. When I had the "free" option for a supplemental plan through Medicare and had to be hospitalized, I had massive doctor bills from doctors who weren't in my plan network. As senators, these candidates have the best medical insurance in the country and have no idea what the rest of us peons have to live with.

  • Attention everyone. Just because Pete can speak good doesn’t mean he’s a good candidate. Just because he’s smarter than Donald Trump which by the way a three is smarter than Trump, doesn’t mean he’s a good candidate. He can’t get the minority vote. Has accepted PAC money backing corrupt insurance companies. Corruption within his own police department. Sorry to say this but he is not a good candidate no matter how much MSNBC and CNN try’s to promote him.
