  • >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY, WE'RE HERE WITH BERNIE SANDERS

  • IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW FOLLOWING HIS SUSPECS OF HIS

  • CAMPAIGN THIS AFTERNOON.

  • SENATOR, THANKS AGAIN FOR BEING HERE.

  • I-- HERE'S MY NEXT QUESTION: GIVEN THE UNPRECEDENTED CRISIS

  • THAT WE'RE IN RIGHT NOW, WHAT DO YOU THINK, AS A SENATOR-- AS YOU

  • SAID, YOU'RE NOT GOING AWAY-- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU AND YOUR

  • COLLEAGUES IN CONGRESS SHOULD DO NEXT?

  • WHAT IS THE NEXT BIT OF LEGISLATION?

  • >> ALL RIGHT, THIS IS WHAT I THINK.

  • I THINK FROM THE HEALTH CARE PERSPECTIVE, WE NEED TO FORCE

  • THE PRESIDENT TO USE THE DEFENSE PRODUCTION ACT TO PRODUCE

  • EVERYTHING THAT OUR DOCTORS, OUR NURSES, OUR MEDICAL PERSONAL

  • NEED.

  • >> Stephen: CAN HE USE THAT TO ACTUALLY STOP PRICE GOUGING?

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: BECAUSE RIGHT NOW THE STATES ARE COMPETING AGAINST

  • EACH OTHER FOR VENTILATORS, AND THEN FEMA SWEEPSES IN AND THEY

  • TRY TO-- THEY RAISE THE PRICE BY BIDDING AND OTHER COUNTRIES BID.

  • CAN THERE BE A SET, FAIR PRICE?

  • >> ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY THEY CAN.

  • AND THIS IS AN EMERGENCY.

  • THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED DURING WORLD WAR II, YOU KNOW, FORD AND

  • GENERAL MOTORS STOPPED MAKING CARS AND THEY STARTED MAKING

  • TANKS.

  • RIGHT NOW, WHAT WE NEED IS TO MAKE THE MASKS, TO MAKE THE

  • VENTILATORS, TO MAKE THE GOWNS, TO MAKE ALL OF THE EQUIPMENT AND

  • PRODUCTS THAT OUR MEDICAL PEOPLE NEED.

  • THAT IS NUMBER ONE.

  • NUMBER TWO, I HAPPEN TO BELIEVE THAT IN THE ECONOMIC CRISE,

  • WHERE WE'RE SEEING JUST IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS, OFFICIALLY, 10

  • MILLION PEOPLE APPLIED FOR UNEMPLOYMENT, BUT THE NUMBER OF

  • PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR JOBS I BELIEVE IS A LOT HIGHER THAN

  • THAT, THAT THE EASIEST APPROACH, THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVE

  • APPROACH, IF YOU LIKE, IS SIMPLY TO DO WHAT MANY EUROPEAN

  • COUNTRIES ARE DOING AND SAYING, "YOU KNOW WHAT?

  • WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE THE PAYCHECK THAT YOU GOT BEFORE YOU

  • WERE LAID OFF."

  • NOW, WE DID THAT WITHIN THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY.

  • IN THAT LAST BILL, WE TOLD TWO MILLION WORKERS IN THE AIRLINE

  • INDUSTRY-- AND THAT INDUSTRY, OBVIOUSLY, HAS BEEN DECIMATED BY

  • THIS CRISE-- WE TOLD TWO MILLION WORKERS, "YOU WILL CONTINUE TO

  • GET YOUR PAYCHECK FOR SIX MONTHS IF THE CRISIS LASTS THAT LONG."

  • I THINK WE SHOULD DO THAT FOR EVERY WORKER IN AMERICA.

  • AND I THINK THAT IS, FRANKLY, THE EASIEST, LESS-BUREAUCRATIC

  • WAY TO GET MONEY OUT TO PEOPLE TO EASE THE STRESS THAT SO MANY

  • PEOPLE ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW.

  • THERE ARE PEOPLE-- MILLIONS OF FAMILIES IN AMERICA TODAY,

  • STEPHEN, THAT ARE WORRIED ABOUT HOW THEY'RE GOING TO FEED THEIR

  • KIDS TOMORROW, HOW THEY'RE GOING TO PAY THEIR RENT, HOW THEY'RE

  • GOING TO PAY THEIR MORTGAGE, HOW THEY'RE GOING TO KEEP THEIR CAR.

  • AND I THINK IF WE CAN SAY TO THOSE PEOPLE, "YOU'RE GOING TO

  • CONTINUE TO GET YOUR PAYCHECK," THAT WILL BE THE RIGHT THING TO

  • DO ECONOMICALLY, AND CERTAINLY MAKE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

  • BREATHE A CIPH RELIEF.

  • >> Stephen: NOW, YESTERDAY WAS THE PRIMARY IN WISCONSIN, WHICH

  • WAS A COMPLETE MESS.

  • GIVEN WHAT WE SAW YESTERDAY, HOW IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP THE

  • POLLING STATIONS OPEN WITHOUT ENDANGERING THE POLL WORKERS,

  • HOW DO WE MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE A SMOOTH ELECTION IN NOVEMBER?

  • >> WELL, WHAT I SAW YESTERDAY IN WISCONSIN WAS UNBELIEVABLE.

  • IT WAS PROBABLY THE UGLIEST THING THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN FROM

  • A POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE IN MY LIFE.

  • BECAUSE WHAT THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE OF WISCONSIN WERE FORCED

  • TO DO IS TO LITERALLY PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE, TO WAIT ON

  • LINE IN ORDER TO CAST A BALLOT.

  • AND I AM-- YOU KNOW, WHAT THE REPUBLICANS DID, THE GOVERNOR

  • THERE TRIED TO DO THE RIGHT THING, TRIED TO DLAIT ELECTION,

  • REPUBLICANS, FOR THEIR OWN-- I GUESS THEIR OWN PERCEIVED

  • POLITICAL GAINS-- FORCED THAT ELECTION TO GO FORWARD.

  • AND THEY GOT A RIGHT-WING SUPREME COURT THERE THAT OKAYED

  • WHAT THEY DID.

  • SO I THINKUE KNOW, I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE WORLD IS GOING TO LOOK

  • LIKE IN NOVEMBER.

  • NOBODY DOES.

  • BUT I WILL TELL YOU THAT I AND MANY OF MY COLLEAGUES ARE

  • WORKING AS HARD AS WE CAN TO COME UP WITH THE MONEY AND THE

  • LAW TO MAKE SURE THAT IN NOVEMBER, IF IT IS NECESSARY,

  • THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN VOTE BY PAPER BALLOT.

  • AND I WILL TELL YOU-- AND IT DOESN'T GIVE ME ANY PLEASURE TO

  • TELL YOU THIS.

  • YOU WOULD THINK THAT'S KIND OF A NO-BRAINER.

  • YEAH, OF COURSE YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE

  • LINE TO HAVE TO GO OUT AND VOTE IN PERSON.

  • BUT I WILL TELL YOU THAT THERE IS STRONG RESISTANCE COMING FROM

  • REPUBLICANS.

  • AND YOU KNOW WHY THAT RESISTANCE IS COMING?

  • THEY UNDERSTAND THAT THROUGH PAPER BALLOTS, THERE WILL BE A

  • LARGE VOTER TURNOUT, AND THEY DON'T LIKE LARGE VOTER TURNOUT.

  • THEY WANT A SMALLER VOTER TURNOUT, BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE

  • THEIR PEOPLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO VOTE THAN LOWER INCOME PEOPLE OR

  • YOUNG PEOPLE WHO MIGHT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE PAPER BALLOT.

  • AND I THINK THAT'S PRETTY PATHETIC, TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH.

  • I WOULD HOPE NO MATTER WHAT YOUR POLITICAL VIEW IS YOU DO

  • EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO MAKE SURE THAT AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE

  • PARTICIPATE IN OUR DEMOCRACY.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, SENATOR, LAST QUESTION BEFORE I LET YOU

  • GO, BEFORE YOU MADE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT, DID ANYONE NOTIFY

  • LARRY DAVID?

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> YOU THINK HE'S PRETTY UPSET

  • THAT HE'S GOING TO LOSE HIS FOUR-YEAR GIG THERE?

  • I DON'T KNOW.

  • >> Stephen: I DON'T KNOW.

  • >> NO.

  • ACTUALLY, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, I JUST TOLD-- JANE AND I JUST

  • TOLD OUR KIDS THIS MORNING.

  • SO...

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • WELL, LARRY, THIS IS YOUR NOTICE.

  • SENATOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR WORK IN THE SENATE, IN KEEPING THE TORCH

  • ALIVE AND HOLDING IT HIGH.

  • AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING US THE HONOR OF THE FIRST

  • INTERVIEW AFTER YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT.

  • STAY SAFE.

  • >> THANK YOU.

  • THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  • YOU KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK AS WELL.

  • >> Stephen: THANK YOU, SIR.

  • SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY, WE'RE HERE WITH BERNIE SANDERS
