We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Bernie Sanders is associated, including Hillary Clinton, United States, and state. Most recently, Bernie Sanders has been quoted saying: “Inequality, corruption, oligarchy and authoritarianism are inseparable. Around the world we have witnessed the rise of demagogues who once in power use their positions to loot the state of its resources. These kleptocrats, like Putin in Russia, use divisiveness and abuse as a tool for enriching themselves and those loyal to them.” in the article Why Don’t Sanders Supporters Care About the Russia Investigation?.

Bernie Sanders quotes

Oct 31 2017

We've got to take on Trump's attacks against the environment, against women, against Latinos and blacks and people in the gay community. But equally importantly, we have to focus on the bread and butter issues that mean so much to ordinary Americans. Americans are not staying up every day worrying about Russian interference in our elections. They're worried about how they're going to be able to send their kids to college. They're worried about how they're going to pay the rent. They're worried about whether they can afford healthcare.feedback

Oct 31 2017

We are the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and our job is to create an economy that works for all of us, not just the one percent.feedback

Oct 31 2017

I worry very much about the attacks we're seeing every day in a variety of ways, not only from the Russians, on American democracy. We have a president who clearly does not understand the Constitution of the United States, a president who attacks the media every day, and media has a very important role to play in our democracy. Of all the enormous issues facing this country, making sure we fight to protect and revitalize American democracy and take on all of those people who want to undermine what men and women fought and died to defend, that is our major task.feedback

Oct 30 2017

I know that Canadians are well-known throughout the world as gentle and kind people. Be a little bit louder.feedback

Hillary Clinton couldn't do it.feedback

Oct 30 2017

I'm not taking sides, to be honest with you. I've got enough to keep me busy in Washington. I think it's the right thing to do.feedback

Oct 30 2017

I know you want to get me into a feud with the governor. We'll leave it be.feedback

Oct 24 2017

I am an independent and I have always run in Vermont as an independent, while I caucus with the Democrats in the United States Senate. That's what I've been doing for a long time and that's what I'll continue to do.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Inequality

This is not a bad budget bill, it is a horrific budget bill. At a time of massive income inequality, this budget provides $1.9 trillion in tax breaks for the top 1 percent.feedback

Oct 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

We're talking about a major political party now working night and day on behalf of the top 0.1 percent.feedback

Oct 17 2017 - American politics

Obviously there's been a whole lot of discussion about health care with the Republican effort to repeal and replace, with Trump's effort to try to sabotage. But what is not being discussed is we have a community health center program which now provides health care to some 27 million people all over this county.feedback

Oct 17 2017

Right now we have a very, very fragile primary health-care system in America, and that primary health-care system is being stretched to its limits.feedback

Oct 17 2017 - Obamacare

We are going to overturn what Trump is trying to do.feedback

Oct 17 2017

I look at politics a little bit differently than some of my colleagues in the sense that I believe that we need to build a national grassroots movement. So I think my emphasis is going to be more on grassroots politics.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Wall Street

You cannot be a party which, on one hand, says we're in favour of working people, we're in favour of the needs of young people, but we don't quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class. People do not believe that. You've got to decide which side you're on.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

Four years is a long time from now. We'll take one thing at a time, but I'm not ruling out anything.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress claim that their tax plan would benefit the middle class. Nothing could be further from the truth.feedback

Oct 15 2017 - Vaccine

American consumers should not be forced to pay the highest price in the world for a vaccine we paid to help develop.feedback

Oct 10 2017

Our system of higher education is in a state of crisis. As tuition and fees rise and states cut funding for colleges and universities, American families are finding it difficult to afford college. Millions of graduates have had to take on life-long debt for the 'crime' of getting the education they need. For most, this debt will take many years to repay, which not only impacts their career choices, but also their ability to get married, have kids or buy a home.feedback

Oct 10 2017

In the richest country in the history of the world, everyone who has the desire and the ability should be able to get a college education regardless of their background and ability to pay. This is not a radical idea. Many nations around the world invest in an educated workforce that isn't burdened with enormous student debt.feedback

Oct 10 2017

While not all middle-class jobs in today's economy require post-secondary education, an increasing number do. By 2020.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't know what world Trump is living in.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - Republican Party

It is unacceptable and we're going to fight it as hard as we can.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - Inequality

This budget is the Robin Hood principle in reverse. At a time of massive income and wealth inequality, the Republican budget takes from the middle class and those in need, and gives huge tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Affordable Care Act

The truth of the matter is the Affordable Care Act has done some very important things. Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater.feedback

Sep 17 2017

In my view, a Medicare for all, single-payer program will address those issues and guarantee health care to all people in a cost-effective way.feedback

Sep 17 2017

After endorsing Hillary Clinton, I went all over this country.feedback

Sep 15 2017

You go to the same doctor. You go to any damn doctor you want to go to. What's going to change is the wording on the card that you have. It will no longer be United Health Insurance or Blue Cross Blue Shield. It'll be Medicare-for-all.feedback

Sep 14 2017

We have a very, very exciting show! She's kind of a household name in America now.feedback

Sep 14 2017

He talks about rationing? We have enormous rationing in this country. When you have 28 million people who have no health insurance, that's rationing. When you have people who can't afford to go to the doctor or can't afford to buy prescription drugs, one out of five Americans can't afford the prescription drugs their doctors prescribe, that's called rationing. Except there's no rule on that; there's no law on that. It's just people don't have the money to buy what they need in terms of health care.feedback

Sep 14 2017

There is no doubt about it, momentum is on our side. We spend almost twice as much per capita on health care as any other nation on Earth and yet we have 28 million people without any health insurance and even more who are under insured.feedback

Sep 14 2017

While, depending on your income, your taxes may go up to pay for this publicly funded program, that expense will be more than offset by the money you are saving by the elimination of private insurance costs.feedback

Sep 13 2017

The American people want to know what we are going to do to fix a dysfunctional healthcare system which costs us twice as much per person as any other country and yet leaves 28 million people uninsured, and even more underinsured.feedback

Sep 13 2017

The American people want to know what we're going to do to fix a dysfunctional health-care system.feedback

Sep 13 2017

As workers shift into the new system, employers will be required to pay either 75 percent of what they are currently paying for health care costs for each of their employees who enroll in Medicare for All, or the 7.5 percent payroll tax, whichever is higher. A typical family of four earning $50,000, after taking the standard deduction, would pay a 4 percent income-based premium to fund Medicare for All – just $844 a year – saving that family over $4,400 a year.feedback

Sep 13 2017

We are not England. This is where the country has got to go if we want to move away from a dysfunctional, wasteful, bureaucratic system into a rational healthcare system that guarantees coverage to everyone in a cost effective way.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - American politics

To our Republican colleagues, please don't lecture us on health care. You, the Republican Party, have no credibility on the issue of health care.feedback

Sep 13 2017

I have no doubt, none whatsoever, that this nation, sooner than people believe, will pass a Medicare for all, single-payer system.feedback

Sep 13 2017

There's nobody who has all of the answers. Nobody has all the answers. What I can say is we are going to be listing a number of revenue-raising proposals, which will generate more than enough money to pay for what we want to do.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - American politics

I think in a democracy, we should be doing what the American people want.feedback

Sep 13 2017 - Women

The transition to the Medicare for All program would take place over four years. In the first year, benefits to older people would be expanded to include dental care, vision coverage and hearing aids, and the eligibility age for Medicare would be lowered to 55. All children under the age of 18 would also be covered. In the second year, the eligibility age would be lowered to 45 and in the third year to 35. By the fourth year, every man, woman and child in the country would be covered by Medicare for All.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I think the American people are sick and tired of filling out forms. Your income went up – you can't get this. Your income went down – you can't get that. You've got to argue with insurance companies about what you thought you were getting. Doctors are spending an enormous amount of time arguing with insurers.feedback

Sep 12 2017

Rather than give a detailed proposal about how we're going to raise $3 trillion a year, we'd rather give the American people options. The truth is, embarrassingly, that on this enormously important issue, there has not been the kind of research and study that we need. You've got think tanks, in many cases funded by the drug companies and the insurance companies, telling us how terribly expensive it's going to be. We have economists looking at it who are coming up with different numbers.feedback

Sep 12 2017

When you have co-payments – when you say that health care is not a right for everybody, whether you're poor or whether you're a billionaire – the evidence suggests that it becomes a disincentive for people to get the health care they need. Depending on the level of the copayment, it may cost more to figure out how you collect it than to not have the copayment at all.feedback

Sep 11 2017

If you see more and more members of Congress saying, I support single-payer,' it is because now they know it is not as politically risky as it used to be. You're not being an outcast. You're not being a fringe member of Congress. If polling shows that a strong majority of Democrats support single-payer, what is the problem with coming on board?feedback

Sep 08 2017

[Is he open] to single-payer? Not in a million years.feedback

Sep 08 2017

As a result of our campaign, millions of young people began to vote for the first time, became engaged in the political process. We're seeing young people all over this country, working class people, running for office – from school board to Congress.feedback

Sep 08 2017

We have got to stand together again Trump's efforts to divide us up, take on the billionaire class and make that political revolution so that we have a government that works for all of us and not just the one percent. We need her help to go forward. Let's not keep arguing about 2016. Let's get together, take on Trump's desire to divide us up. Let's go forward with a progressive agenda. Ask her if she'll do that.feedback

Sep 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

Look, Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in the history of this country and she lost, and she was upset about that.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - DACA

Taking legal protections away from 800,000 young people raised in this country is absolutely counter to what we stand for as a nation.feedback

Aug 26 2017 - Affordable Care Act

People are saying 'the ACA did some good things, and the Republicans wanted to throw 22 million people off of it'. That's an absurd idea to most people. Brian is doing good work. I think we need to have short-term solutions to the health-care crisis, while working toward Medicare for All. I would hope we could get some support for making more people eligible for Medicaid. We need to substantially lower the prices for prescription drugs. I'd favor a public option, right now, and we're working on that in the [Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions] Committee.feedback

Aug 26 2017 - Trumpcare

The pay-for is going to be a separate piece of legislation. It will not be radically different from the proposal we introduced during the presidential campaign. It will exempt lower income people from making any payments at all. But people in the average middle class family, when they recognize they don't have to pay for private insurance anymore, are going to save tremendously.feedback

Aug 20 2017

The folks at Our Revolution had not done as good a job as they should at touting these things. I believe when we talk about revitalizing American democracy, we start with local offices and grass roots campaigns. The media will talk about congressional races, sure; but I think what we are seeing is a revolution at the local level, in the cities.feedback

Aug 12 2017 - Twitter

While this incident is alarming, it is not surprising. Hate crimes and shows of hostility toward minorities have recently been surging. Now more than ever we must stand together against those who threaten our brothers and sisters.feedback

Aug 07 2017 - Obamacare

What you saw was a rising up of the American people. That's why it was a victory.feedback

Aug 03 2017 - Democratic Party

Supervisors have called workers off assembly lines for one-on-one interrogations. Anti-union videos are being run on a constant loop in employee break rooms. Groups of workers have been called into 'roundtable' meetings to hear management disparage the United Auto Workers. Nissan has been saturating local TV and radio with anti-union propaganda.feedback

Aug 03 2017 - Democratic Party

This could go down as one of the most vicious, and illegal, anti-union crusades in decades.feedback

Aug 02 2017 - Abortion

We have got to appreciate where people come from and do our best to fight for the pro-choice agenda. But I think you just can't exclude people who disagree with us on one issue.feedback

Jul 31 2017

I see it as an intergenerational issue – it's something that affects everybody. Everybody can agree that it's hard to do anything unless you are healthy.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Women

I do hope, by the way, at some point within this debate, if we can, if not, certainly in the near future, to, in fact, be introducing a Medicare-for-all, single-payer program. It will be somewhat different than my friend John Conyers' bill in the House, but what it will do is say that in America, if you are rich or if you are poor, if you are a man, woman, and child, yes, you are entitled to health care as a human right and not a privilege.feedback

Jul 18 2017 - American politics

This is a great victory for the millions of Americans who stood up and fought back against this dangerous legislation.feedback

Jul 17 2017

If there's some veteran in South Dakota, or Vermont who lives a zillion miles away from a VA hospital, should that person be able to get their health care across the street in their community? Who would argue against that? But here is the problem: While we want to give veterans choice, we do not want to do it in a way which dismantles the VA. We want to strengthen the VA. What we don't want to do is dismantle the VA piece by piece and put that money into the Choice Program.feedback

Jul 13 2017

He knows that when we stand together, we can do enormous things.feedback

Jul 11 2017

The current model has failed, very clearly. We need new energy, we need working people, we need young people. We have got to stop the same old, same old.feedback

Jul 11 2017

A lot of folks go where the money is, and I understand that, we live in a time of Citizens United. People spend their lives running around the country, raising money to take on the Koch brothers, and the billionaire class. I understand that, but at the same time, Democrats have got to develop a strategy that supports the folks in Kentucky, and West Virginia, and in Tennessee and Mississippi and Alabama, and Wyoming, and Utah. That's something we've got to do.feedback

Jul 11 2017

Donald Trump told the people that he was going to be a champion of the working class. You don't win if you don't show up. If somebody opens the door, I think you walk in, but obviously you don't walk in if he's talking about tax breaks for billionaires. You don't walk in, if he's still talking about throwing 23 million people off their health insurance.feedback

Jul 11 2017

It's amazing, the degree to which, in this country, in states like West Virginia and Kentucky, Democrats have, to a large degree, forfeited these states, conceded these states to right-wing Republicans. In many cases, these are working-class states, these are states where people are struggling economically. The idea, that Democrats would not be fighting, and investing in, and working with people in these states, is to me, beyond comprehension.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Affordable Care Act

You do walk in, if by some chance, there are some Republicans who want to improve the Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act has problems. Deductibles, premiums, co-payments are too high. Prescription drug costs are much too high. How do we improve that? Let's do that.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Republican Party

Short-term we should lower the age of Medicare eligibility to 55 years of age. In the short-term, I hope we can work with Republicans to end the absurdity of us paying the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. Longer term, we need a Medicare for all system.feedback

Jun 27 2017

It's a scary thing – 60 percent of the American people don't know what's in that legislation. Your job, my job, is to make sure 100 percent of people know what's in that legislation – and tell Republicans what they think about it.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

You have to do your best to tell the truth, but at the same time you have to make it clear that violence of any kind is unacceptable. It's not me who's saying people are dying. They will. That's just a fact. You have Harvard University making that statement. And it's common sense – of course people are going to die. It doesn't give me any pleasure to say that Trump is a pathological liar. It's just the truth. I've never called any other politicians pathological liars.feedback

Jun 26 2017

I say this not to be overly dramatic. If you take away health care from 23 million people, what will happen? People will die, by the thousands!feedback

Jun 26 2017 - American politics

Democrats have to meet people where they are. My sense is that the Republicans understand that this bill is a disaster. You can't throw 23 million people off health insurance, give tax breaks to millionaires and not know it's a disaster. But I think what they believe is that with the Koch brothers, and with unlimited amounts of money, they will be able to survive. What Citizens United has done is change the dynamics of American politics so that anybody who runs against any of these incumbents will see massive amounts of personal attacks from Day One.feedback

Jun 25 2017

If you have cancer and your insurance is taken away from you, there is a likelihood you will die and certainly a likelihood you will become much sicker. There is no way on God's Earth that this bill should be passed this week. The people of Wisconsin don't know what's in it, the people of Vermont don't know what's in it. We need a serious discussion.feedback

Jun 25 2017

This was a story that just, amazingly enough, came out in the middle of my presidential campaign, initiated by Donald Trump's campaign manager in Vermont.feedback

Jun 20 2017

I very much want Ossoff to win.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - Immigration

That's a Koch brothers proposal.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - Trumpcare

During his campaign, Trump posed as a friend of the working class. Do not tell us that you are a friend of the working class when you throw 23 million Americans off of health care, and make devastating cuts to education, senior needs, nutrition, housing, and environmental protection.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Wall Street

Our job is to talk to people about the role Wall Street plays, the role the fossil fuel industry plays, the role that the Koch brothers play. Our job is to take that anger and transform it into a constructive role, to take on the ruling class of this country that has done us so much harm.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

All over this country, there are people who are furious. Those people are angry, and what Trump has done is take that anger and say: The reason you are hurting is because some Mexican guy is picking strawberries for $8 an hour. That's your problem. There's a Muslim over there – that's your problem. Our job is to bring people together, and say: If you are angry, because your standard of living is going down, because you're working longer hours for lower wages, you're worried about your kids, you should be angry. But take your anger out on the right people.feedback

Jun 14 2017

My hopes and prayers are that Representative Scalise, congressional staff and the Capitol Police Officers who were wounded make a quick and full recovery. I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm.feedback

The British elections should be a lesson for the Democratic Party.feedback

There's not a strong coalition for that here in Virginia to pass.feedback

Jun 13 2017

Ageism is the last 'ism' that seems to be acceptable to people, and I never felt that it was whether somebody was too young or too old. You win some. You lose some. And you keep on going and maybe you can win the next one.feedback

Jun 13 2017

I'm energized by the resilience of the message of the campaign. Our focus is we're not going to lose any ground. We're not going to stop.feedback

Jun 13 2017

Persistence is extremely important. Yeah, you run and you lose. So what?feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Wall Street

We may have lost the election in 2016, but there is no question that we have won the battle of ideas, and we are continuing that battle – and that is, brothers and sisters, no small thing. The Democratic Party must finally understand which side it is on, and that cannot be the side of Wall Street or the fossil fuel industry or the drug companies.feedback

Jun 11 2017

They won those seats by standing up to the ruling class.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Democratic Party

The Democratic Party must finally understand which side is it on.feedback

Jun 10 2017

People have got to understand that we're at a pivotal moment in American history, and it's not clear which way we'll go. There's an enormous potential to improve peoples' lives; on the other hand there's an opening for an austerity economy where everybody but the top one percent gets poorer. I will do my best to make people to understand that this is a 12-month a year operation, not about an election every four years.feedback

Jun 10 2017

I'm very appreciative of the support we have, but we've got to stay focused.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Labour Party

I congratulate Jeremy Corbyn for running a very positive and effective campaign.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Inequality

I am delighted to see Labour do so well. All over the world people are rising up against austerity and massive levels of income and wealth inequality. People in the UK, the US and elsewhere want governments that represent all the people, not just the 1%. What has impressed me – and there is a real similarity between what he has done and what I did – is he has taken on the establishment of the Labour party, he has gone to the grassroots and he has tried to transform that party … and that is exactly what I am trying to do.feedback

Jun 08 2017

In my view, the statement made by Mr. Vought is indefensible, it is hateful, it is Islamophobic, and it is an insult to over a billion Muslims throughout the world. This country, since its inception, has struggled, sometimes with great pain, to overcome discrimination of all forms … we must not go backwards.feedback

Jun 08 2017

I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about. I will vote no.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Labour Party

Corbyn is coming across as quite likable.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Labour Party

He has gone to the grassroots and he has tried to transform that party. I am also impressed by his willingness to talk about class issues. Too many people run away from the grotesque levels of income and wealth inequality that exist in the United States, the UK and all over the world.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Labour Party

I don't think Jeremy Corbyn needs my advice. Nor do the people of the UK need my advice on who to vote for. I think they understand.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Labour Party

These problems are not unique to the US. Globalisation has left far too many people behind. Workers all over the world are seeing a decline in their standard of living. Unfettered free trade has allowed multinational corporations to enjoy huge profits and make the very rich even richer while workers are sucked into a race for the bottom.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Labour Party

How insane is it that we are telling people that they are going to have pay off debt for decades for the crime of getting an education?feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Labour Party

I don't think Jeremy Corbyn needs my advice. I think he is doing quite well. Nor do the people of the UK need my advice on who to vote for. I think they understand. But I have been very impressed by the campaign that he has been running and I wish him the very best. Trump's views do not reflect the views of the majority of the people in the United States.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Labour Party

What has impressed me – and there is a real similarity between what he has done and what I did – is he has taken on the establishment of the Labour party, he has gone to the grassroots and he has tried to transform that party … and that is exactly what I am trying to do. I am also impressed by his willingness to talk about class issues. Too many people run away from the grotesque levels of income and wealth inequality that exist in the United States, the UK and all over the world. We will never make the kind of changes we need unless we take on the levels of inequality that exist.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Brexit

What I think Brexit was about was a lot of people who felt left behind by the global economy and their voices and their pain was not being heard. What upset me was the Democratic party more or less ignored that reality. What Democrats have got to do is to have the courage to look at that pain.feedback

May 09 2017 - Wall Street

I think at a time when people are so frustrated with the power of Wall Street and the big-money interests, I think it is unfortunate that President Obama is doing this.feedback

May 05 2017 - Trumpcare

The president has just said it, that's great. Let's take a look at the Australian health-care system, and let's move – maybe he wants to take look at the Canadian health-care system, or systems throughout Europe. Thank you, Mr. President. Let us move to a Medicare-for-all system that does what every other major country on Earth does: guarantee health care to all people at a fraction to what we spend.feedback

May 05 2017 - Trumpcare

Yes, Mr. Trump, the Australian health care system is a lot better than ours and infinitely better than the disastrous bill you supported.feedback

May 05 2017 - Trumpcare

Thank you Mr. Trump for admitting that universal health care is the better way to go. I'll be sure to quote you on the floor of the Senate.feedback

May 05 2017 - Trumpcare

Thank you Mr. President ... Let us move to a Medicare for all system that does what every other major country on Earth does, guarantee health care to all people at a fraction of the cost per-capita that we spend. Thank you Mr. President. We'll quote you on the floor of the Senate.feedback

It just speaks to the power of Wall Street and the influence of big money in the political process.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Democratic Party

We need to transform the Democratic Party. We need to open the doors of the Democratic Party to working people and to young people. Our job is to take on the moneyed interests. And the only way I know as to how we do that is by bringing millions of people into the political process, with a newborn understanding that we have got to get involved.feedback

We'd have a rally with five or ten thousand young people out, a great deal of energy. Our job is to radically transform the Democratic Party into a 50-state party.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Populism

You're not a populist if you want to, as he did in his health care bill, raise premiums for low-income senior citizens. You're not a populist when you want to throw 24 million people off health care. You're not a populist when you want to do away with nutrition programs for pregnant women and children.feedback

In Kansas, it is true that the Democratic candidate lost. It is true that the Democratic Party should have put more resources into that election. But it is also true that he ran 20 points better than the Democratic candidate for president did in Kansas.feedback

Apr 17 2017 - Social security

So, what you're seeing in Kansas, what you're seeing in Georgia, I believe you're going to see it in Montana, I believe you're going to see it all over this country; in the many so-called red states, working people are going to wake up and say, wait a second. Republicans want to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and education, and they want to give hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the top 1 percent.feedback

Today what Gov. Cuomo is proposing is a revolutionary idea for higher education. And it's an idea that is going to reverberate not only throughout the state of New York, but throughout this country. Higher education in America should be a right for all, not a privilege for the few. If we are to succeed in a highly competitive global economy and have the best-educated workforce in the world, public colleges and universities must become tuition-free for working families and we must substantially reduce student debt.feedback

Tom's victory will be a signal all across this country that we will not be a nation that gives tax breaks to billionaires, that scapegoats minorities and cuts programs for working people and poor people and the sick. Tom's victory will show that America's moral compass is pointing in a very different direction.feedback

You are going to have to roll up your sleeves, get your hands dirty and get into this fight.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Democratic Party

Running for chair, Tom said that his views were not substantially different than Keith Ellison's, who I strongly supported. I'm sorry he did not win. But during that campaign, Tom said that the Democratic Party had to be refocused, had to be rebuilt, and I trust that he will keep those promises. The fact that he's prepared to travel with me around the country and pick up half the cost of this is a positive sign.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Democratic Party

We'll be traveling – and Tom will be traveling with me – to traditionally conservative states. It's absolutely absurd that the Democratic Party has turned its back on working people in literally half the country. This is part of our effort to revitalize the Democratic Party, to turn it into a grass-roots party – to tell people that Donald Trump's agenda is not what he promised them. On issue after issue, he's turned his back on working people and sided with the millionaire class.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Supreme Court

I don't think there was a speech I gave where I didn't talk about the importance of the Supreme Court. The message, I think, is: We don't change America unless we increase voter turnout, and we get greater public consciousness. It'll be difficult to do that with Citizens United still standing, and with voter suppression taking place. And those are issues that come right before the Supreme Court. I think a lot of people are not fully aware of the impact of the Supreme Court on workers' rights, on the environment, on women's rights, and we've got to do better at communicating that.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Supreme Court

Four years ago, Democrats, facing incredible, unprecedented obstructionism, decided to change the rules. But with the Democrats in control, what they also said – I was in the room, and there was a debate – was no, not the Supreme Court. It's so important that it does not become a place where you can just ram someone in.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Inequality

We need to elect progressives at every level of government if we are going to beat back the dangerous agenda of the Trump Administration and its Republican allies. Tom is committed to fighting the rigged economy and income inequality. He was the first major statewide candidate in Virginia to run on a $15 minimum wage and the first to say two years of community college should be tuition-free.feedback

What my young people tell me – and nobody over 12 really understands this – is video is increasingly important. And I'm not particularly happy about that.

So clearly the Democratic Party needs a top-down overhaul. And that top-down overhaul means that instead of becoming dependent and being dependent on big money interests for campaign contributions, it has got to become a grassroots party.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Democratic Party

The Democratic Party today, programmatically, in terms of how it does business, has failed. Perez has got to capitalize that and that's the kind of party the Democrats have to create. I was elected in Vermont as an Independent. But let me just say this, the Democrats will not succeed unless it attracts many, many millions of Independents. The number of people who are now moving in the Independent direction as opposed to Republican or Democratic, it is growing. So if the Democrats are going to be successful, in fact that party is going to have to appeal to a whole lot of Independents.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Supreme Court

It's not a question of filibuster. I am for the Republicans obeying the rules that currently exist, and not changing those rules. And the rules right now, for good reasons, are 60 votes. You're using the word filibuster. All it is, is there will be – no, it is not. There will be a vote. If he doesn't get 60 votes, he does not become Supreme Court justice. That's the rule right now. It's not like people are going to be there standing for months and months, bringing down the government. That is what the current rule is. And I think it's important that it be maintained.feedback

Mar 26 2017

President Trump said a whole lot of stuff on the campaign trail. One of the things he talked about was lowering the cost of prescription drugs. There is wonderful legislation right now in the Senate to do that. President Trump, come on board. Let's work together.feedback

What we're starting to do, for the first time in the modern history of the Democratic Party, is active grass-roots organizing.

Russia played a very heavy role in attempting, successfully, I think, to impact our election. That is unacceptable. We need to know what kind of influence the Russian oligarchy has over Trump.

Here he is, seemingly in strong disagreement with Australia, with Mexico, with long-term allies; but he has nothing but positive things to say about Mr Putin who is an authoritarian leader.feedback

Mar 03 2017

What I'm going to be saying is that the facts are very clear; that workers in America who are members of unions earn substantially more, 27 percent more, than workers not in unions. They get pensions and better working conditions. I find it very remarkable that Nissan is allowing unions to form at its plants all over the world – well, if they can be organized everywhere else, they can be organized in Mississippi.feedback

I fear about that statement and what is something we should all worry about, is when Trump talks about three to five million people voting illegally he is sending a message to every Republican governor in this country to go forward with voter suppression.

Let me just talk to you after the primary here in California where we hope to win. Let's assess where we are after tomorrow.feedback

I heard that he was going to debate me, then I heard that he was not going to debate me, then I heard that he was going to debate me. Now you're telling me that he is not going to debate me. Well, you know, I hope that he changes his mind again. Well, Mr. Trump, what are you afraid of?feedback

May 26 2016

He was delighted that Trump accepted. Let's do it in the biggest stadium possible.feedback

May 26 2016

I believe that if we win here in California, and if we win the other five states that are voting on June 7, we're going to go marching to the Democratic convention with a hell of a lot of momentum. I believe that if we do well here in California, we'll march in with momentum and we'll march out with the Democratic nomination!feedback

The media often takes words out of context. The context of that was that democracy is messy. That people will have vigorous debate on the issues.feedback

We think we have a path toward victory, and that path absolutely must go through California.feedback

May 11 2016

Let me be as clear as I can be, we are in the campaign to win the Democratic nomination. We are going to fight for every last vote.feedback

It is not only in national polls where we defeat Donald Trump by bigger numbers than Secretary Clinton, it is state poll after state poll after state poll. Mr. Trump will not become president because the american people understand that our our strength is in our diversity. We are a great nation because we are gay and we are straight. We are a great nation because we are women and men.feedback

May 04 2016

May 02 2016

It is virtually impossible for Secretary Clinton to reach a majority of convention delegates by June 14 with pledged delegates alone. In other words, the convention will be a contested contest.feedback

May 01 2016

We have an uphill climb, no question about it.feedback

May 01 2016

He would fight to persuade superdelegates to flip their support to him ahead of and during the convention. If I win a state with 70 percent of the vote, you know what? I think I'm entitled to those superdelegates.feedback

Apr 29 2016 - Democratic Party

Our job is to revitalize American democracy. And the Democratic Party has to reach a fundamental conclusion: Are we on the side of working people, or big money interests?feedback

Apr 28 2016

We are trying to run an issue-oriented campaign and a campaign means that you talk about your record, what you believe in, as opposed to your opponent's. That's what Clinton does. Of course we're going to do that.feedback

Apr 27 2016

We are going to fight for every delegate.feedback

Apr 22 2016

Frankly, I am very surprised that Secretary Clinton would support this regressive tax after pledging not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000. This proposal clearly violates her pledge. A tax on soda and juice drinks would disproportionately increase taxes on low-income families in Philadelphia.feedback

Apr 20 2016

I am really concerned about the conduct of the voting process in New York State and I hope that the process will change in the future. I'm not alone in my concerns, the Comptroller of the city of New York talked today about voter irregularities.feedback

If you can believe this, in New York state today, about 27 percent of the eligible voters in that state are unable to participate in the Democratic or Republican primaries because they have chosen to list themselves as Independents. That's wrong.feedback

Despite the fact that the entire, virtually the entire New York political Democratic establishment is standing with [Clinton], you know what, we're gonna do just fine tonight in New York.feedback
