                    LOL. He did. Just goes to show you how bad she is. She couldn't answer the question because it's not part of her prepared campaign speech. She pivoted to her speech as soon as she could.

                    Congress (and that means you, Warren) relieved themselves of the duty to declare war long ago, and have done nothing to retake that power.

                        @Kali to be fair, Newsom is a very skilled politician and rolls with the punches quite well but we should see more of this when it comes to political interviews.

                        @Kali Thank you. If you want to see a classic search YT for "Adam Carolla interviews Gavin Newsom". If you're not aware, Carolla (the Man Show) has a southern California based podcast. Newsom is a northern California political hack stumpin around the state for visibility for an eventual governor run. He's now California's very liberal governor. This is gold. :)

                        You have to interrupt politicians to knock them off their stump speeches otherwise they just drone on and don't answer the questions. Note how she pivoted to campaign mode as soon as he let her speak. He's a bad interviewer, at least when confronting his side of the political spectrum.

                          She needs to explain how a single payer health care system would actually work. Start by talking to experts in countries that have these systems. Some solid information would make people more confident.

                              "Seems" is the key word. She's a politician. Assume every word she says is a lie and assume she doesn't care about anyone. Most of the time, you'll be right.
                              Start there and you'll understand politics.

                                I lived in Finland almost 30 years and avg tax rate of 31,3% is awful. this avg of +-30% is something for middle class people pays, for salaries 5k/month and more you pay +-50%. Many people speaks about tax paradises like Malta (my current place) but rather tax paradise than the paradise of tax collectors !

                                  Good luck finding a doctor. We will end up with a two tier system. The rich who can pay for their care and the rest of us not having access to care. Doctors can't stay in business getting paid at Medicare rates for everyone. You will wait forever to get surgeries etc. These people are idiots. We can't allow them to have any more control of our lives. They don't care about us. They only care about power.

                                    Gotta love all the external countries commenting on America's way of life. Without us you wouldn't be able to afford your precious tax free tuition, or health care. We literally pay you billions of dollars in defense funds so that you can defend yourselves. God knows you cant or wont whenever you're threatened by a neighboring country. NONE of you would even exist if it weren't for the U.S. and Allies entering the 2nd world war. The United States of America, the only country IN THE WORLD where free speech exists. If you said half of the things you like to post like coward internet warriors, in your own countries, You'd probably be beheaded. America's the worst, just don't be gay in Iran because then they'll throw you off the top of a building. Americans and their love of guns, hahaha pewey, except hows that knife crime going over in the UK? Gun buyback yeah, Australia has a handle on that. Still having shootings and knife murders.
                                    So don't sit there on your high horse and down us Americans. Maybe the next time some dictator is knocking at your door, we'll sit here on OUR high horses and look down our noses at you. Just ask the French how well it went when O'l Adolph came a knocking. Their government, which you people want in every aspect of your lives, rolled over and played dead. Handed the keys to the country right on over. (NOT blaming the valiant French people. They fought for years to liberate their country after their government failed them)

                                      @SpecialistBR Yeah, and we pay most of those countries defense funds. Don't come at me with bullshit. Leftists, gotta love it when they only pull out one segment of an entire argument to TRY and make a point. WE PAY THEIR DEFENSE FUNDS!!! There would be none of those countries without the United States or the monies that we pay so they can afford to arm their armies. They had better come to our defense. BETTER meaning that in my mouth every god damned shit hole country that you listed above, BETTER get out of bed and walk on nails if we ask them to. When they STOP taking US dollars then you can talk shit. Until then, recognize, that you come from a 3rd world dirt hole that no one cares about. When you can support all your cute little free tuition and free health care on your own, then you can talk shit. Until then, if I want to hear shit from you, I'll squeeze your head.

                                      I don't know if you were even born before 9/11/2001, because you sound like a toddler. But after that day, when more than 3 thousand americans were killed by terrorists that your government helped create back in the 80s, every member of NATO stepped forward in helping the US and most of them even sent troops to Iraq and Afghanistan to fight alongside US troops. So you better wash your mouth before talking about Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland, Georgia, Ireland, North Macedonia, Switzerland, Sweden, Ukraine, Australia, Bahrain, El Salvador, Jordan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Mongolia, Singapore, Singapore, South Korea, Tonga and the United Arab Emirates because they also literally spilled blood in foreign soil to help defend your personal safety and freedom to come here to Youtube and say stupid shit.

                                        Btw, i am waiting to die and already told I don't qualify for disability. Obamacare changed my doctor's and the new ones I have now told the government there was nothing wrong with me and I should go back to work and pay more taxes. The Democrats are just trying to make it worse.. if I were illegal, they would put me on public assistance. But I'm an american so that makes me a deplorable human being..don't understand how you all can lie to yourselves about healthcare for all...

                                              The Harvard Crimson, the daily student newspaper of Harvard University, was founded in 1873. It is the only daily newspaper in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is run entirely by Harvard College undergraduates.

                                              In 1996, Harvard believed that Pocahontas was a Native American. Here's the extract of the article. "Of 71 current Law School professors and assistant professors, 11 are women, five are black, one is Native American and one is Hispanic, said Mike Chmura, spokesperson for the Law School.

                                              Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American."

The Constitution is simpler, it says *only* Congress has the power to declare war. Which IIRC was last done for WW2, not Korea, not Vietnam, not any middle eastern incursion....weasel words.

                                                        I think what she missed saying is that yes, your taxes will probably go up a little, but your out of pocket costs (insurance, co-pays, etc) will go away. Any increase will come from money you were already spending and now won't have to spend. So you will actually end up paying less.

                                                            I hope that's a joke and I hope you can handle it when she fails. Seriously, there isn't one candidate yet that can beat Trump as of today. Not even close. Trump's slaughter meter is pegging at 200% for the win.

                                                            She will not. She will lose to the dotard !
                                                            She has no charisma and lies as much !
                                                            You are stupid to believe that she will be.
                                                            You are a poor judge of character !

                                                          Somebody should have told you guys nothing in life is free.what are you people going to do when the wealthy and industry move their money and your jobs out of the country or they go broke over these stupid ideas and we become a third world country? This country was built of off hard work never quite figure it out on your own no help no handout God fearing people. It's taken generation of people sacrifice to build the greatest country man has ever know and you snowflakes are trying to destroy it. You cannot take something from someone that's not yours . That's called theft . You cannot spend what you don't have.

                                                            Hawi Jack: let me answer that for you. These are the tax rates in the Netherlands in 2019:
                                                            Taxable income Percentage
                                                            Up to 20,384 euro 36.65%
                                                            From 20,385 till 68,507 euro 38.10%
                                                            Above € 68,508 euro 51.75%

                                                            Not specified here are various rebates e.g. anyone earning less than € 20.384 gets a tax rebate of 2,477 euro. There are also housing (rent) and health care subsidies. And if you own a house you may deduct the mortgage rent from your taxable income first.

                                                              She refused to answer the question. Multiple times. Also, the president is allowed to use military force if whoever is sitting in office deems it necessary; they just can't declare war or utilize a prolong engagement without congressional approval. "Prolong engagement" isn't really defined though; but if the president wished to conduct a strike without congressional approval he is well within his power to do so.

                                                                "No President gets to declare war on their own"

                                                                Right, except the fact that EVERY President has done this exact thing while you've been in office and NOT ONCE did you have a problem with it.

Clearly the same thing, but since Congress doesn't want to run things and defers their power every chance they get, this is where we're at.

Elizabeth Warren is a lying witch, almost as bad as Killary, except she hasn't ordered the murder of anyone ... yet. She, like the vast majority of Democrats is also a traitor to America and the American people. Politicians who use their political office for personal gain can be impeached; Therefore, most of the Democratic party (Probably all) can and should be impeached.
