  • >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY!

  • WE'RE BACK WITH THE SOON-TO-BE CHAIRMAN OF THE SENATE BUDGET

  • COMMITTEE, SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS.

  • IT HAS BEEN A LONG FOUR YEARS, AND AMERICA HAS CHANGED IN A LOT

  • OF WAYS.

  • WHAT, IN YOUR OPINION, HAS BEEN THE GREATEST CHANGE YOU'VE SEEN

  • WROUGHT ON THIS GREAT COUNTRY OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS, AND

  • WHAT HAS STAYED THE SAME, DESPITE THE ATTACKS?

  • >> WELL, I THINK WHAT HAS UPSET ME THE MOST IS NOT JUST DONALD

  • TRUMP.

  • TRUMP IS A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR AND A DEMAGOGUE, AND I GOT THAT, BUT

  • WHAT UPSETS ME THE MOST IS SOME 73 MILLION AMERICANS SUPPORTED

  • HIM AND THAT HE DID BETTER IN MANY DEPRESSED AREAS OF THE

  • COUNTRY THAN HE DID IN 2016.

  • NOW, HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

  • WHY DO PEOPLE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT SOMEBODY WHO IS A LIAR,

  • WHO GIVES THEIR BENEFITS -- MAKES POLICY TO BENEFIT THE RICH

  • AND THE POWERFUL AT THE EXPENSE OF WORKING PEOPLE?

  • HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?

  • HOW DO WE RESTORE FAITH IN GOVERNMENT SO THAT PEOPLE

  • UNDERSTAND THAT THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO BE

  • WORKING FOR THEM?

  • HOW DO WE BRING A NATION TOGETHER WHICH TRUMP HAS DONE

  • ITS BEST TO DIVIDE US WITH HIS RACISM AND HIS XENOPHOBIA?

  • SO WE HAVE AN ENORMOUS TASK IN FRONT OF US IN THAT REGARD.

  • I THINK, YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE ASKING ME WHAT'S POSITIVE ABOUT

  • ALL OF THIS, AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU HAVE HAD GOVERNMENTAL

  • OFFICIALS, SECRETARIES OF STATE IN GEORGIA, ARIZONA, OTHER

  • REPUBLICAN STATES WHO, AGAINST AN ONSLAUGHT OF VICIOUSNESS AND

  • TREATS FROM TRUMP'S BASE, HAVE DEFENDED THE CONSTITUTION, AND

  • THAT'S NO SMALL THING.

  • BUT GETTING BACK TO YOUR POINT ABOUT REINVIGORATING DEMOCRACY

  • AND VOTING RIGHTS, AT THE VERY HIGHLES LEVEL OF PRIORITIES HAS

  • GOT TO BE THE EFFORT TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN CREATE A VIBRANT

  • DEMOCRACY WHERE IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME, THAT'S FINE, YOU'RE NOT

  • MY ENEMY, WHERE WE HAVE FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS, WHERE BIG MONEY

  • DOES NOT BUY ELECTIONS, WHERE WE END THE KIND OF RACISM AND

  • XENOPHOBIA THAT WE'RE SEEING RIGHT NOW.

  • >> Stephen: THERE WAS SOME SPECULATION THAT YOU WOULD BE

  • SECRETARY OF LABOR, BUT, WHEN BIDEN NOMINATED, INSTEAD, MARTY

  • WALSH, HE DID SAY THIS ABOUT YOU MORE PASSIONATE AND DEVOTED ALLY

  • TO WORKING PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY THAN YOU.

  • DOES IT EVER SURPRISE YOU THAT THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED THE

  • PRESIDENT, THOSE 74 MILLION PEOPLE, MANY OF WHOM ARE WORKING

  • CLASS WHITE PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES, THAT YOU CAN'T FIND

  • COMMON CAUSE WITH THEM BECAUSE MANY OF THE POLICIES THAT YOU

  • PUT FORTH WOULD BE BENEFICIAL FOR EVERY WORKING CLASS PERSON

  • IN THE UNITED STATES, MANY OF THEM FOR ALL PEOPLE, BUT

  • CERTAINLY SPEAKING OUT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE POWER

  • OF THE CORPORATE MONEY BEHIND THEM IS SOMETHING YOU'RE KNOWN

  • FOR.

  • WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THEM?

  • >> MY MESSAGE IS LET US WORK TOGETHER ON HEALTHCARE, LET'S

  • WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE ALL OUR KIDS REGARDLESS OF INCOME

  • CAN GET A HIGHER EDUCATION, LET US NOT ALLOW THE DEMAGOGUES

  • DIVIDE US UP.

  • WHETHER YOU'RE BLACK, WHITE, LATINO, YOU WANT YOUR KIDS TO

  • HAVE A DECENT EDUCATION, YOU WANT CLEAN WATER, YOU NEED

  • HEALTHCARE AND YOU CAN'T MAKE IT ON STARVATION WAGES.

  • WHAT OUR JOB HAS TO BE IS TO BRING PEOPLE AROUND AN AGENDA

  • THAT IS IN FACT SUPPORTED BY THE MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

  • AND VIGOROUSLY OPPOSE THOSE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO DIVIDE US BY

  • THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN OR OUR RELIGION OR WHERE WE WERE BORN.

  • >> Stephen: IN 2016, PAUL RYAN SAID REPUBLICANS SHOULD BE

  • SCARED OF DEMOCRATS CONTROLLING THE SENATE BECAUSE BERNIE

  • SANDERS WOULD BE THE BUDGET CHAIR.

  • BEFORE WE GO, WHAT'S THEONE THING THAT YOU COULD SAY THAT

  • WOULD SCARE PAUL RYAN THE MOST?

  • >> WELL, I WOULD SAY TO PAUL RYAN IS THAT WE ARE GOING TO

  • START AN EFFORT TO TAX THE WEALTHIEST PEOPLE IN THIS

  • COUNTRY AND THE LARGEST CORPORATIONS WHO, TODAY, ARE NOT

  • BAYING, BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION, THEIR FAIR SHARE OF

  • TAXES.

  • >> Stephen: SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, EVERYBODY.

  • BACK WITH A PERFORMANCE BY FINNEAS.

  • SENATOR, THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
