(TRO FIRE) – Our next question comes from @TheAtomicSultan who asks, “Given that the majority of the country supports Medicare for All, why has the majority of the Democratic party rejected the idea? My guess would be the cost of it on the federal government ($3.26 Trillion annually.)” I think the reason we’ve seen so many Democratic hold outs on this particular issue is because up until, what was it, a week and a half ago, we didn’t know that 70 percent of the public supported this. At least on paper, we didn’t know that, or they did not. I can’t say we, because they don’t go out there and talk to people. That’s the problem. They’re not doing their job as politicians, as candidates, and going out there and talking to people. They’re talking at them.

Any time there’s a rally like what Donald Trump gives, Democrats to the same thing. They’re talking at the people, not to them. I think that’s the big difference, and I think that’s a big difference of what Bernie Sanders has been doing. Yeah, Bernie goes out and does speeches, but you can also find just as many if not more instances of Bernie Sanders walking around and speaking to people, talking to them like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is talking to the people. [inaudible 00:01:18], talking to the people. Andrew Gillum, Democratic candidate for governor in the State of Florida, talking to people. That’s the big difference here.
