    Sen. Warren On Health Care: ‘I Will Sign Anything That Helps’ | The Last Word | MSNBC


    1. Darrin Howard

      The mainstream media always seem to love a X republican who turn dem candidate or a Hillary type neo liberal candidate , they love Bloomberg and Warren both x republican candidates , its a pattern with the mainstream media SMH.

    2. Darrin Howard

      This is where Lawrence is stupid and really lives in his own mainstream rich media bubble, if Burnie becomes President and 75% of the population in the polls love Burnie Medicare for all and student loan plan Nancy and the Dems would be crazy not to sign it , not signing it and siding with the health insurance companies and lobbyist or settling for less would be the dems next election kryptonite in the polls, Nancy will also loose her seat , besides Elizabeth Warren lies a lot she would say anything in the moment a lot like Hillary, first she lied about being half native america then she said she was with Burinie on medicare until she was not she is like a pendulum she swings where ever, thats the Republican trait in her.

    3. roww10

      Sign anything, that what Obama did. We got the ACA, the mandate, the republican system. The question is what will she fight for. Anyone can sign anything. Sanders is the only choice in 2020.

    4. Jayantha Raj

      Warren is a big fraud. She attacked her colleague about wine cave where as she charged $6000.00 per bottle to raise money. Now she is warning about a huge tax increase.

    5. Beverly Vinson

      Bernie Sanders-President! LIZ Warren- vice president!!

    6. Mahir Rahman

      #Bernie2020 Warren drop out and endorse him

    7. Lorraine Roberts

      Why? Doesn't MNSBC have Bernie on.

    8. Mun Strum

    9. Treasure Trovel

      Anybody out there think Hillary is going to remain on the sidelines and let Lizzy be the first woman President? Not likely. As corrupt as Hillary is, at least she is smart enough to keep one finger on the pulse of America and is willing to be moderate on policy (unless it interferes with her globalist pay for play but that is another story). At least Hillary's proposed policies are not crazy like Liz's. Hillary is currently polling way above Liz so why would Hillary not step in? Who would I pick????? Hillary makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up but so does Liz but in a different way. Obviously, I would vote for the guy who loves our country. Trump 2020. He is not perfect and he is crass and a Washington outsider but he gets the job done for Americans and he loves his country. Contrast his slogan, "Make America Great Again" with Hillary's "I'm with Her". Ask not what your country can do for you, Ask what you can do for your country".

    10. Mark Musial

      The reason the rest of the world has no respect for Trump as president. Is because most the press only says negative, bad things.

    11. Always Winning

      The Democrats are doing a stellar job ensuring Trump gets another victory.

    12. Chris Chapman

      For all her flaws, she removed centerfold model scott brown from office.

    13. Deacon

      What she meant to say is, I will do anything thing that helps me with Big Pharma while flying on a charter Jet to her 3 million dollar home. You go girl!

    14. The Devils Playground

      I can't stand this lying pos. It puts a smile on my face to see her poll numbers tank.

    15. eddy bremer

      Deep down the democrats know that all their candidates are terrible!

      1. Vixen Victory

        I'll take ANY of the democratic candidates over Trump! Every. Single. One. Each of them is 100 times more intelligent and a better human than our current Criminal-In-Chief.

    16. Luke Sky

      Donald Trump 2020! MAGA!

    17. endwelfare

      So why is Healthcare such a Huge issue I thought Obamacare fixed our HC system

    18. Lift Weights Get Paid

      This Woman has been caught lying about her past numerous times. Sheep choose to support her. Sheep who are unable to do proper research on political figures who are in their own party. Bias sheep following the shepherd.

    21. Nico Pik

      She is a second Merkel and will have the same effect on the US: Massive illegal immigration, fatal economic decisions, exploding costs for social welfare, etc. This woman is a great thread for America. Keep away from her, America. Greetings from Germany!

    22. David Gatto

      Those billionaire's are so afraid, they may have to pay for all the weapons we've purchased over the last 50 years to protect their wealth.

    23. Sabavoon Fazli

      Warren is player of the system another Obama. Only bernie can do the job. That's why MSNBC and other media treat him as he who should not be named. #Bernie2020

    24. Collin Lawrence

      Diversity is our Strength !!!! Vote for more Democrats and allow for more immigration !!!

    25. Oblique Kick

      A few big differences between Warren & Bernie: Bernie has been committed to Medicare for All from the beginning. Warren only recently declared she is fully supportive of Medicare for all. Unlike Warren, Bernie is committed to small donor fundraising even in the General election. Warren has said she would only do small donor fundraising in the Primary, so Bernie won't feel any sort of pressure to bend on his policy stances once elected. Warren originally planned on voting for Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing, but then flip flopped when she was criticized. Warren worked with republicans to repeal the 'Medical Device Tax' which would have helped defund the ACA, in order to appease the Medical Device Industry in her state. Unlike Warren, Bernie has a long history of progressivism dating back to the 60s. Warren was a staunch Republican up until the late 90s. Bernie has also been one of the longest serving members of congress, he was a mayor in Vermont, and has a lot of experience in governance compared to Warren. Warren voted twice to increase the Military budget brought forth under Pres. Trump, which appropriated over $81Billion for purchase of Aircraft, Weapons, Missiles, and Combat Vehicles. On top of that it appropriated several Billion dollars toward other parts of the DoD. Bernie wants to cancel all student debt, Warren wants to implement a means-tested solution. A Means-tested program will likely further split people into the "haves" vs. "have-nots" and are easier to attack, dismantle, and weaken. Take a means-tested program like Welfare vs a universal program like Social Security as an example. Welfare is very unpopular whereas Social Security is very popular. Why the Differences Between Sanders and Warren Matter That Time Warren Cheered Trump. Well, this was disappointing... Elizabeth Warren gives standing ovation to Trump's promise that "America will never be a socialist country." Elizabeth Warren hates money in politics, keeps taking campaign donations from rich lobbyists and corporate executives Elizabeth Warren ripped Joe Biden’s big Philly fund-raiser. Last year, she did an event with some of the same rich donors. Leftover PAC money funneled into Warren's campaign Elizabeth Warren’s Campaign Turned To A Big Donor To Pay For The DNC Voter Database, Despite Her Fundraising Pledge Despite Fundraising Pledge, Elizabeth Warren Turns To Multi-Million Dollar Democratic Donor Dem front-runners [Biden, Harris, Warren] cash in on slippery definition of lobbying Here are the federal lobbyists who have funded Elizabeth Warren, despite her pledge to reject such money Elizabeth Warren's 'big money' rejection doesn't apply to general Warren’s Top Donors Include Individuals From Firms That Represent Corporations: Received hundreds of thousands of dollars from individuals in securities and investments; Wall Street lawyers Why Wall Street prefers Warren to Sanders Warren has a plan for Wall Street - and Wall Street isn’t panicking Wall Street Sees Elizabeth Warren as ‘Acceptable Alternative’ to Bernie Sanders Why Does Wall Street Suddenly Find Elizabeth Warren Acceptable?

    26. ideal92

      Did Elizabeth Warren sign onto enrollment documents as an Native American to personally benefit? Aren't there legal requirements to show documentation to prevent individuals from attempting to impersonate a different ethnic ancestry? Was Mrs Warren required to provide documents to verify her Native American ancesty?

    27. ManOWords

      Kamala Harris our next brilliant attorney general who will perform again and take down fraud traitor Trump and William Pepe murderer Barr and then proceed to indict and imprison the trump syndicate.

      If there wasn't extreme waste and benefits to politicians and it were used to help people the US would be better than now

    33. Anne Wyatt

      Politicians wanting to take tax money and wastefully spend it

    34. Johan Nilsson

      I like so many of the Democratic contenders, it's hard to choose a favourite. I'm thankful I'm not an American so I don't have to choose. :) I'm a little worried though. Whoever the nominee ultimately will be, will the supporters of the other candidates "bite the bullet" and actually go vote for the nominee that's not their ideal candidate. I'd hate for Trump to be reelected just because Democrats can't get along. I remember seeing many Bernie supporters that got super annoyed by Bernie when he officially endorsed Hillary in the end. Many of them ended up staying home, voting for Trump or third party instead of Hillary. I implore every Democrat, if for example you're a Warren supporter and Bernie or Biden is the nominee, don't stay home or vote for Trump -- vote for Bernie or Biden. Likewise if you're a Bernie supporter and Warren is the nominee, vote for Warren. Even though Biden maybe is not the most perfect candidate ever in the history of the universe, he is infinitely better than Trump.

    35. Kathleen Austin

      What America is going's not democrats vs's ...Whats right...vs Wrong!!! Our Democracy is in peril!🇺🇸

    36. fo rr

      Come on Warren, Kamala VP? You will lose my vote (stop being a politician its so unappealing).

    37. Joseph DuPont

      DID SEN. WARREN Fart or step on something really bad?

    38. Robert Baur

      I love Warren when shes afighter for the people but this pandering to Kamala is gross shes going to talk her self into lowering her own polls

    39. The Summerland

      so tired of hearing people say if there is universal healthcare than they will 'have to ait' for healthcare like in people would rather leave millions to die rather than wait in line...sickening and the root problem in America, selfishness above all else, selfishness and rampant corp greed begun w reaganomics, where all the revenue was shifted to the top and working people struggle for healthcare, housing, food, etc..this is very much a third world nation for all but the top, who pay less revenue than any other nation's wealthy..the wealthy and corps love America bc it is set up for their rampant greed..this nation is SHAMEFUL..wealthiest nation and people and animals homeless explosion , uneducated, without healthcare but trillions to military and fossil fuels to further climate crisis..sick

    40. Peter Taylor

      I do like Bernie... but TULSI 2020 Integrity and Leadership.

    41. Peter Taylor

      Don't like Warren, she's an attention seeker without any depth in her Platform.

    42. Q Co

      My girlfriend got in her tent.

    43. Q Co


    44. David Peterson

      Is this liar calling President Trump a liar?

    45. Noor Nasri

      You'd never see Bernie given this fair treatment on MSNBC because they know he's going to go through with what he says. Warren already backed down from single payer to a "choice".

      1. Scout Regiment

        Yeah, I personally believe Warren, but with the favorable coverage from corporate media... I'm thinking she will be the Obama 2.0. Obviously Biden will be Hilary 2.0. My Favorite candidate is actually Tulsi Gabbard, but I like Yang and Bernie. If Sanders does win I hope he makes Tulsi his VP or at least a high position involving military strategy.

    46. mcr1jp

      An articulate, convincing candidate who would be a wonderful President. Wake up America and get Trumph out. He is an imbecile!

    47. Jane Pappas

      If you like Warren, you’ll love Bernie. He has never wavered on Medicare for all. He is not proposing any cap on student loan debt forgiveness (Warren caps it at maximum of $50,000 if you earn less than $100,000). His climate plan is an investment in keeping with the size of the crisis and he is talking about serious criminal justice reform. His workplace democracy plan will empower workers in all fields and double union membership. Please go to with an open mind.

    49. Ernest Heau

      I don't know if Warren will be the nominee, but she would be great in debate with What's-his-name. She would drown him in facts which he totally does not understand. He has no idea what a marginal tax is for example.

    50. gordon kainoa

    52. Kathryn Shaw

      I suspect that many are offended by Warren's term, "wealth tax". Since a lot of middle-class (?) Americans are about to find out that they were adversely effected by the recent tax cut, I believe that many would just be happy to see the super-rich return to paying their "fair share" of taxes.

    53. Kathryn Shaw

      My first real job was paying health and disability claims for one of our largest insurance companies in 1965. I became convinced then that the private group insurance was an poor choice for America. It became a burden on small and medium sized businesses that were struggling to make a profit. Sometimes they felt forced to provide insurance on a par with union contracts in order to maintain their employees. Sometimes they failed to keep up with rising health care costs and their employees received only a pitiful payment that didn't come close to covering huge medical costs. Boy, was that a shock to those families. Especially, if you understand that still in the 1960s, the man was considered the primary "breadwinner" in the family. The woman was expected to be a "stay at home mom" and if she did work, she wasn't paid as much. Society had classified her as simply "paying for nonessential extras". If she did have insurance, her insurance automatically paid after that of the "head of household". Men frequently felt trapped in jobs that they hated because someone within the family had a "pre-existing condition", and their care would not be covered if the employee changed jobs. The goal of the private insurance policy was to get you well enough to return to work. It was not to keep you well in the long-term. At that time, Mayo (Minnesota), Kiezer (California), Veterans Administration Hospitals, and Congress were the only ones in the country with full and complete health care. Even the best of the private insurance plans limited benefits, particularly on the therapies; mental health, physical and occupational. Health care was further limited by copays, percentages, and policy contract limits. The attitude of health maintenance organizations (HMO's) was that it would be cheaper in the long-term to keep people well, than to allow their health to degrade. Now, almost everyone is aware that paying for anything these days is simply a matter of computer accounting. Standardizing the benefits we need available accross the country will lower costs and help make them more available. Taking that burden off of the business owners, will allow them to add that "benefit" back into the employee paycheck. We do need the super-rich to go back to paying their fair share. All of the other capitalist countries in the world have laid out the ground work for us. We profit from their mistakes. Our new President will steer but not determine the details of our new National Healthcare Plan. That's the job for the Congress that you and I elect. We've lost too many American lives in the last 55 years due to a broken healthcare system. Let's shove the riff raff out of the way and get this done.

    54. rlesss

      Yes Ms. Warren, be sure to thank Bernie for all your ideas. How about coming up with an idea of your own. Your tweaking of MFA still keeps you COZY with Drug companies, we see that. No thanks, not for me! BERNIE 2020 Even if media wont say his name.

    55. Parlez64

      Warren is a smart cookie. She needs to stop declaring she's not "political" each time she speaks. IT'S ALL POLITICAL, so get over it !! We aren't idiots out here....tell us how you will be practical and actually raise the business of normal Americans. F the wealthy issues. EXAMPLE: Who'll protect our hungry kids and SNAP users who cannot work 20 hrs/week "for food"? Employers won't hire unskilled or mentally deficient folks. Shoot, they won't hire PTSD vets! Where is THIS CONVERSATION in all the rhetoric? Change trains, DEMS, we're real people out here. "Last Word" isn't my end of day news source anymore. Switching to Lester Holt. Saw too much worn out Trudeau gossip at end of day.

    56. Jhon Shmit

      U people of USA should force feed to the people Michael Moore film how Europe live. From school to medical care to holidays.

    57. Ryan Newman

      That's right, folks. Don't expect her to fight for medicare for all. She has already given up and will sign whatever the GOP tells her to.

      Why did Liz vote for Reagan and Bush sr ( twice each ) while Reagan killed the Middle Class and rained genocide on AIDS victims? Where's the 40 trillion Liz claims she can easily find to fund her schemes?

    67. Simon Narode

      She just said yes, she would sign a public option that doesn't phase into Medicare For All. Listen to what she's saying - she's not committed to Medicare For All!

    68. Mary Smith

      I trust ELizabeth Warren to make the right decisions. Health care is a tough problem. Obama showed how hard it was to start toward justice; Warren will show us how to continue. Maybe along the way the plan will change but I trust her to do in the moment what will need to be done.

    69. Rapid Randy Hughes

      All but $150 of my monthly income goes toward health care costs.

      Don't believe those DNC Establishment polls , they are there to discourage people to Support Tulsi , she is doing much much better than we are told . Tulsi herself has called out the rigging of the polls and not being transparent ; Remember the people who are in control of the polls are the same people that smear Tulsi on a daily basis that being the DNC Establishment ; Does anyone actually believe that Mayor Pete a small town mayor (that he couldn't even run ) , who was humiliated by Tulsi in the last debate and who has absolutely NO experience in Foreign Policy which is the most important part of being President and has NO experience in dealing with Heads of States could actually doing better in the polls , you would have to be a complete moron to believe that : ;
