dishonest people. look at these numbers. hundreds and hundreds of dollars. jeb paid close to $3000 a vote. who is one of the lowest? i am just about the lowest. the lowest? the great donald trump. the great donald trump. [applause] donald trump: by the way, i'm very proud of the fact that i have spent less money than just about anybody else on the campaign. i'm going to start spending a lot for two reasons. number one, i don't want to take any chances. number two, i feel guilty because when jeb has now spent $119 million or some ridiculous number and much of it is theyrked to me, ads, cannot be very good because every time he takes an ad, my numbers go up. it is a crazy deal. [laughter] donald trump: nationally, i am
leaving every poll. honestly, other than iowa. i'm leading the states, leading here tremendously. but every single national poll, i am leaving. and just about every state poll, i am leading. i spent the least and i have the best result. [applause] donald trump: isn't that nice? others like jeb and a couple of others have spent the most, and they have the worst result. how can you put them in charge? think of this. we have a school system. we are getting rid of common core, by the way. [applause] donald trump: education in the united states is the most expensive per people in the entire world. right?
the most expensive in the entire world, and there is no second place because it is so much lower it is ridiculous. china, denmark, sweden, these are like the top four or five places for education. we are number 30. i used to say 28. we just went up two notches. we are now 30 in the world. byband the most per-pupil far and have the worst education by far. we are now number 30 and spend the most. when it be nice if they did like trump, where i spend the least and have the best results? [applause] donald trump: wouldn't that be good? so important. that is what i mean. our budget. they said we are working on the budget and we think within 25 years, we can balance the budget. i said, 25 years? these are serious people. they said 25 years to balance the budget. i'm talking about doing it relatively weekly.
we will have a better country. we will get rid of the waste, fraud, abuse, all of the waste, the disgusting waste and the frog. you look at the veterans administration. take a look at what is happening in phoenix, arizona. it is one of the great formula scams you have ever seen. the veterans administration. we are going to take such good care of them. what is going on is unbelievable. we are going to make our country so strong and solid. i said the other day we are going to make our country rich again, and woman said that does not sound nice. i say we cannot be great unless we are rich. we are a debtor nation. that horrible budget i told you about is worth $2 trillion. that takes care of our border. that takes care of the syrian refugees who we are never going to let in. i have a big heart, but we are never letting them in. we don't know who they are. we don't know where they come from. it's not going to happen. [applause] donald trump: it's not going to
happen. and anybody that comes in, i want everybody to know we have to send them back. we cannot take chances. we can't afford to make mistakes like that. we have the two people that were radicalized, probably she radicalized him, the married couple. oh, great, who in california killed 14 people with many badly injured in the hospital. we did not know this. we did not know anything about it. we had paris with a have the toughest gun laws in the world, because we are going to preserve our second amendment. we are not going to touch the second amendment unless we are going to make it stronger. [applause] donald trump: so paris has the toughest gun laws in the world, right? the toughest in the world. you can't have a gun. unless you are a bad guy, no problem. these disgusting thugs walk into various places and start
shooting people. move over, boom. 130 dead. many so gravely injured that they are going to be dying. they are dying now. other people are going to live a life of hell because they are so horribly injured. if we had a few people in this room, i can look at them. that guy right there, he's mean. if we had a few of the people, you, you. let me pick a woman. you. and if somebody had a gun on their belt or somebody had a gun wrapped around her ankle, and those bullets started coming at you or you see they were going folks, you shoot them, that is our form of protection. [applause]
donald trump: you wouldn't have the carnage you had there. how about the military base? five great young soldiers. a gun free zone. one of the soldiers is a world-class marksman, one of the best in the world. they are all top of the line soldiers. takeare told to disarm, their guns, put them 200 yards away. a whack job walks in. these five rate, beautiful soldiers. tough, smart, tremendous future. this whack job walks in and blows them away, kills all five of them. that was it. because you know what? when these crazy people see "gun free zone," that is like saying candy to a baby. that is candy to a baby. we are going to protect our second amendment. we are going to protect ourselves. we are not touching our second amendment. it is under siege.
they are playing now with bullets. they are playing with magazines. they are playing with a lot. we are going to protect our second amendment. remember that. [cheers and applause] when this all began on june 16 coming down the escalator, it was all about border protection. speaking of border protection, and coulter, she has been such a great help to me. where is our ann? ann, where are you? stand up. she is standing up. [laughter] donald trump: she is so great. "audios, amigo." bestseller. she is so great. she has been so supportive of us. she wants border security. she wants people to come into the country legally. they have to come in through a process. but there is nobody stronger on the subject.
i love the book. i read the book. go out and buy the book, everybody. great person. [applause] donald trump: she is a great person. when i started this whole deal, i talked about that. i talked about obamacare, repealing it. i talked about the military. i talked about the vets. i talked about social security because we are going to save our social security. i talked about trade like nobody else can talk about trade. when crowe icon endorses me and many of the best business people in the world want to endorse me, i say don't bother, nobody knows who you are. it is true. not like the great scott brown. nobody knows who they are, but they are the best business people in the world. when they endorse me, i talk about trade. china is making a fortune off of us. we cannot do it. vietnam, japan, mexico, both at the border and was trained. you have to see what is moving.
nabisco is moving the big player from chicago to mexico. four is building one of the biggest auto plants in the world in mexico. what are we doing? we are bringing back our jobs. now we have a case for corporate inversion where companies used to move from here to florida or from here to texas or from texas to hear. now we have a problem. now we have companies. they don't want to move to florida or texas. they don't want to move to new hampshire. boy, have you taken a beating? you talk about companies leaving. you are a prime example. what they have done to you is incredible. we are going to bring them back. we are going to make it so they come back. now we have corporate inversion where companies like pfizer, great companies are moving outside of the united states because taxes are too high. , my bill, i put in
tax policy. big cuts for the middle class. the middle class in this country has been decimated. big, big cuts for business. [applause] donald trump: we are the highest taxed nation in the world. big, big cuts right now, and it is going to pass. it is going to go through. i get things done. idea what followed -- i deal with politicians all my life. we will get it passed. i used to talk about that. when we had that horrible event in paris, and we had the horrible events, as you know, in california, and many other how herbal in events -- horrible events, i brought up the fact we have to start talking seriously about radical islamic terrorism. we have got to talk about it! liked it, and it was just what happened with illegal immigration.
i said it. two weeks later, now they are all trained to be tougher than me. nobody can be tougher than me, by the way. they are all trying to be tougher than me. now i talk about the whole situation. there is such hatred out there. when people are flying airplanes into the world trade center, when people are doing all of these acts all over the world, and i have friends that are muslim. they call me and say you have done a great service. there was tremendous hatred. you cannot solve a problem like that unless you start talking about it. we have a president that will not even discuss it or talk about it or use the word. he won't say "radical islamic terrorism." it is real. it is a problem. you can't solve a problem unless you're going to be able to talk about it. we have had tremendous -- [cheers and applause] i took a lot of
heat, and now everybody is saying thank you so much and it is under discussion. it is a big, big problem. you know what? we are going to get it solved. one way or the other, we are going to get itself. we can no longer be the stupid country. we can no longer be the country led by incompetent people. we can no longer be the country that takes sergeant bergdahl, a dirty rotten traitor, and take him and swap him for five of the biggest killers they have in the middle east, that they have coveted and wanted for at least nine years. think of it. we get bergdahl, and they get these five killers that are already back on the battlefield trying to kill everything in front of them, including us. we are not making deals like that anymore, folks. we are not making deals like that. [applause]
donald trump: just to finish off, you have to see the cover of "time" magazine last week. amazing cover. amazing writer. i never spoke to him. i do better when i don't speak to the writers. when i speak to them, they kill me. bring that appear. -- bring that up here. throw it. weak arm. that's ok. you have to go out and get this magazine. this talk about our movement, it is a movement. this talks about the movement. in the old days, they would have said silent majority. it is really the noisy majority. people are angry. they are upset. they cannot believe this stuff is happening. we are going to make our country so strong. we are going to make it so just. we are going to have a big heart. we are going to take care of people. we have to take care of people.
there are people that cannot take care of themselves. we are going to help people. but we are going to make our country so good. we are going to start winning. we are going to win with health care. we are going to win with our military. we are going to win with our veterans. we are going to win with every single thing we touch. we are going to win against china and trade. we are going to win against mexico at the border and with trade. we are going to win against japan where they send us millions of cars and we cannot send anything of value back to them. we are going to start winning again. we are going to win so much. and we are going to make our country -- we are going to make this great, great country even greater. we are going to make america great again. i love you all. [cheers and applause]
>> and o'keefe is joining us from new hampshire. thanks very much for being with us. caller: host: great to be with you. host: let's talk about the democrats. what does the landscape look like? theer: right now, it favors favorite son, or the favorite neighbor, bernie sanders from vermont. hillary clinton did when the new hampshire primary in 2008, but she is trailing sanders madly. she's going to have a difficult time here, convincing democrats to vote for and to send sanders back across the river. we should expect to see a focused campaign. we've heard her say words like of the people,
by the people, that kind of talk more than we had in previous days. she continues to stick to the pragmatic and practical solutions approach. while sanders may have great ideas, what he's trying to do is not practical. they will focus on his alternatives for medicare, for medicaid, for the affordable care act. he was not as supportive of new gun control measures as she was as first lady and as senator. with martin o'malley out of the race, there wasn't much to be had, but clinton does have a double-digit cap to close. she will have several opportunities to do it. there's a cnn for him, a debate. we are confident that theyhe waw gun control measures as she was as first lady and as senator. will have a lot of interviews between now and next tuesday. host: clearly a win is a win, but i the narrowest of margins.
earlier polls show hillary clinton with a wide advantage in i a lot. does she come into new hampshire with a very narrow win, with a strength or a weakness? guest: a sense of relief, frankly, that she won the contest and can afford to lose the second one. we will have to see whether -- there is as chance the sanders campaign will ask that everything went the way it was supposed to. there were concerns about the voter tabulation system from microsoft. that system seems to have worked. there were other concerns about these coin tosses in places where it was a tie. the fact that she won six of them in a row was seen as suspicious from some sanders supporters. at this point, she can claim one win. she has about a seven-delegate
lead. this does guarantee that the race will continue on well into march, perhaps even april. host: let's talk about the republicans, specifically the pac supporting jeb bush. soap are spending more than $26 million in new hampshire on advertising. the bush campaign spending close to $5 million in ads across the state. jeb bush didn't do very well in iowa. what is his strategy in new hampshire? what is the republican strategy? campaign don't anticipate winning new hampshire. they don't have the demographic they had in iowa. there are not a lot of evangelicals. -- he's going to south carolina tonight.
will spend less time worrying about the granite state. that leaves trump and rubio at the top. bush and john kasich and chris christie essentially vying for second or third. they believe they can make the argument of having executive experience, results oriented approaches to governing, whereas the two senators who did well in iowa have no legislative record. three of them say some version of that. the bush team does have the benefit of this super pac. i saw a wrong moment at a bush event this morning where an older woman showed up with all the flyers stuffed into her mailbox. she confronted a bush staffer and was waving a copy of a right to rise flyer that had rubio on it. she said, this makes people mad. stop endorsing this. stop supporting it. she held up a flyer sent by the
official campaign. said, this is good. it is the kind of literature that -- look, politics is a dirty sport. bush has made very clear, he's not going to apologize for the attacking. the democrats are going to be even more forceful. he's trying to does it just he's got the best record. slid backmbers have in new hampshire as the attack ads have aired. they also started to affect john kasich. in essence, they are working as bush's numbers start to creep up. host: talk about donald trump receiving the endorsement from massachusetts senator scott brown, who ran for a senate seat in new hampshire. does his endorsement carry any weight in the state? guest: that is a tricky thing to figure out. he was seen by many republicans
as a carpetbagger who took advantage of a weak field when he ran and was unable to pick up a seat in new hampshire against jeanne shaheen. he has played a gracious host over the last few months, with most of the candidates coming to his home or to some other venue near his home, to hold a rally. it was grilling meat and handing out chips and stuff. a republicanp is who thrives on celebrity and making boastful statements and coming out of nowhere very quickly to win a race. brown is compatible with trump. he's a northeastern republican and so is trump. agreement ideological . this may be the jerry falwell or
sarah palin endorsement of the race, the one that gets a load of short-term attention but might not result in any real award. o'keefe on the campaign trail in new hampshire. online. available thank you for being with us. guest: anytime. >> coming up, our road to the white house coverage continues in new hampshire. first, hillary clinton campaigns in nashua. after that, bernie sanders talks to supporters in keene. the white house coverage continues today in new hampshire. ohio governor john kasich speaks to the new hampshire business forum. bush00 p.m., we join jeb for a town hall meeting in laconia. at 6:30 eastern, new jersey governor chris christie holds a town hall meeting in milford.

thank you. well, we are here and we are awake. thank president jordan and everyone for welcoming us here. those of you of a certain age will remember it was at a community college in new hampshire i was the first president to deliver a commencement address to a community college. i love these places. [applause] believeson: hillary these colleges work the way america ought to work -- they are open to everybody, inclusive. you either do what you are supposed to or you do not. it helped you build your life and the country's life together.
fork you, governor hassan, your support. senator, thank you. i want to thank the leaders of our great teachers organization. lily garcia and randy weingarte n. [applause] you.linton: thank ellen malcolm, thank you. someone tells me it is your birthday. happy birthday. , i will be very brief and to the point. debate ining a big anxiety,ull of anger, because itnsion takes a long time to get over the crash that happened eight years ago. country, with the
exception of the 1990's, has been growing more unequally for a very long time. and we are now in a position to actually do something about it. are wequestion is, what going to do and who is the best person to do it? finally, in the last few days in iowa, we began to have a debate on honest differences, the lack of consequences, who is the best to do it? hillary can talk about all that. what i want you to know is that one of the things i learned that comes president instantly to her -- instinctively to her is that we are going to have some great days. when she signs the bill to give us 100% coverage in the health care law, we are going to have some great days.
[applause] mr. clinton: when you sign that legislation to make america the inld's leading country making a new economy based on clean energy. when we make college affordable for everybody and debt manageable and everybody gets to pay back a small percentage of their income. there will be some great days. there will be some tough days, when something terrible happens. in other words, the life of a president is like your life. there have been great days, tough days. then there are the other days. you have to show up every day. every single day. and make something good happen. i believe she is the best qualified person for this moment in history. that i have ever had a chance to vote for. [applause] and i believe it
not because she has had more to protect theng security of americans and protect our values around the world than everybody running in both parties put together. not just because she has had a lifetime of working to deal with the challenges of working families and children, and give women and girls equal opportunities, but because she is the best change-maker i have ever known. being a change-maker is different from holding a certain public office. you get upof office, everyday day and figure out how to make some thing good happened. based on my experience having done the job, in the whole series of debates we have had, the question that came up at the end of the last debate in
charleston south carolina, the moderator surprised them all. is there anything we have not discussed that you think we should? he called on hillary first. first, let me say i have no criticism of what senator sanders or governor o'malley said. made me proud to be a democrat. they were outraged about what was happening to the lead in the water. hillary said, when this happened, i was upset. i sent somebody to see you to see what they could do. someone says, yeah. i asked for this much money, and they gave me 10% of it. what can i do? you can go on television, do not talk about the campaign or anyone else. tell us why it costs this much
money to fix the problem. she did it and they got the money. now, i do not know if that is the only reason i got the money. all over america, there was this "oh my god." people learned what happened to babiest women, to their if they get too much lead. even if the children look healthy, they can be damaged. but the point is, her immediate instinct was, what can i do to make it better? the other guys gave good answers. said what the governor did was terrible. but her instinct was, what can i do right now to make it better? [applause] mr. clinton: look.
next month will mark the 45th year since i met hillary. was amazed at, i how she zeroed in on things and made something good out of it, whether it was legal services in againstol or working segregated academies in the south. or getting african-americans out of prisons. veryinging our state it's first kindergarten program. these are now all over the country just because she did it. there are young adults with that aretures rebuilding the education
standards in our state at a time when national experts said they had the worst schools. two of the most improved school systems in america. she made something good happen. [applause] so we got to washington dc, which is kind of like la-la-land. a good rule of thumb in american politics is the furthest away you are from the nearest community college, the crazier politics gets. [laughter] mr. clinton: look, you really do work the way america should. what are the problems? what are the opportunities? solve the problem, go, go. that is what america needs. and you need the best change-maker.
someone who got the republican leaders of the house to work with her to rewrite adoption laws to move children out of foster care and into permanent homes. [applause] mr. clinton: someone who works in the senate across party lines to rebuild new york after 9/11. who guaranteed us national ,uardsmen from new hampshire who were sent to afghanistan and iraq. someone who worked with john mccain on traumatic brain injuries and posttraumatic stress syndrome. [applause] mr. clinton: someone who is secretary of state. maybe the only thing that survives with russia, the new treaty. it is a good thing to have a smaller risk of nuclear war. took 67 votes in the senate.
job,er anywhere, in any and she will find a way to do more good than anybody else in the same job. [applause] mr. clinton: so you have to decide. who has got the right position on the issues and who is the right person to make change? all i know is, at the end of the day, when i walked out of the white house, the only thing that mattered, were people better off than when i started? if you want to say yes to that, i urge you to send a clear message to america and support the best change-maker i ever met -- hillary rodham clinton. [applause]
ms. clinton: hello. oh, my gosh. it is great to be here with all of you. and i am so thrilled i am coming to new hampshire after winning iowa. [applause] i can tell you -- i have won and lost there. it is better to win. and it is a great tribute to my organization and supporters there. we are bringing all that energy, rightment, determination here to new hampshire, where we will work hard up until the primary next week. [applause] gratefulon: i am so for all of you.
every single one of you who are here this morning to kick off this last phase of the primary in new hampshire. as you know, my husband and i are pretty fond of this we have made friends, starting back to 1991 who have been with us year after year. people we care about. people we know are making a difference in this state. to give your governor a big hug as she was heading out the door. absolutely thrilled about her campaign because we need her in the united states senate. [applause] clinton: this is an exciting week for a lot of reasons. it is, after all, the process by which we choose who each party
will nominate for the most important job in our country. and it is up to new hampshire voters to way and in the first primary in the nation. at we have seen the arrival the right time for you to understand what the contest of really is between my and my esteemed opponent, senator sanders. by that because that is the best way for you to make up your mind. what do we stand for? what do we think it to be done? how do we believe we can do it together? how do we make a really difference in people past lives? people's lives?
how do we make sure this country stays true to its values? it goes after the inequality, and not just economic inequality. we had to deal with racial inequality. with gender inequality. with the poverty of spirit that has too much influence over the lives of our fellow americans. i come to you with a lifetime of advocacy and service and getting results. i'm grateful bill was here because he does know a little bit about the job we are competing for. i have to confess, not just because we did meet 45 years ago, i am always surprised when i say that. because he produced results for the american people. he got the opportunity to do that because of the people in
new hampshire. and i want to make this case to you and i want to ask you, during these next of days, to go out and talk to your friends and neighbors and colleagues about what is at stake. it could not be more stark, between what i offer and what the republicans offer. between my record of results and their efforts to turn the clock back on all the progress we have made in america. let me just run through some of the basics. one of the things i love about new hampshire voters is you all sift through it, you take a hard look at what people are proposing, you ask ourselves, does this just sound good on paper or can it get done and who is most likely able to deliver what you need for yourself and your family?
i think the key issue has to be and must be the economy. that is something we democrats agree on. we believe we have to get the economy producing more good paying jobs and raising incomes again for everybody willing to work hard, do their part to get ahead and stay ahead. i think it is fair to point out that the facts are on our side. the democratic party produces presidents who improve the economy and give more americans a chance to live up to their dreams. [applause] ms. clinton: that is a convenient argument, but it has the benefit of being true. i'm not just standing here tell you this because i'm in new hampshire. we know the economy does better with a democrat in the white
house and we know the last two democrats were effective, turning us around and putting us on the right track. that is exactly what i will do. just a little brief history. i do think it matters what we have a contest in the past. that is how you can judge us. that is how our party can be judged. when my husband became president, he inherited a recession. the quadrupling of our national debt and deficit. when he got to washington, he said, what you bring to washington? he said, i guess arithmetic because we are going to make it at up for the american people. that is what happened. after eight years, 23 million new jobs. most importantly, and this is what i want you to hear because
this is what we were able to accomplish and must do again. incomes went up for everyone. everyone. not just those at the top. middle-class families. working people. most importantly, because of my long advocacy on behalf of kids, we lifted more people out of poverty in those eight years than in any other recent time in american history. that matters. and we ended up with a balanced budget and surplus. i think that is not only a good record for bill clinton, that is a good record for the democratic party and what we stand for and what we can do together. now, i wish this were a story that continued to have happy chapters to it. but along came the republicans
again. we must never, ever let anybody new hampshire forget that trickle down economics was a failure then and it would be a failure tomorrow. every single one of those republicans, that is the same snake oil they are peddling today. in came a republican president, and don't ever forget, close elections matter. it is little different when you get selected by the supreme court, but nonetheless, george w. bush became president and dismantled everything that had been built. get out of the way of corporations. take your eyes off wall street, the mortgage markets, and we know what happened because we lived through it. in came a new, young, dynamic democratic president. there were so much he had fought
for and advocated for during the campaign. the first thing he gets met with is, we are losing 800,000 jobs a month thanks to the failed policies of the other party. i remember talking to the president-elect when he asked me to come to chicago after the election. he wanted to ask me to be secretary of state but he said, it is so much worse than they told us and it was. we lost 9 million jobs. people wonder, why are folks in america upset? why are we angry? 9 million jobs. multiply that by family members. that is a lot of americans. 5 million homes lost. the most important investment you ever made, ripped away because of the mortgage finagling that went on. and then, $13 trillion in family wealth. people built it up. you want to pass it on. $13 trillion wiped away.
that is what president obama inherited. i don't think he gets the credit he deserves for digging us out of the debt we found ourselves in. [applause] ms clinton: i know there are those who say, well we should have done more. he should have fought harder. i watched it up close. i was in that. i watched him. save the auto industry and the millions of jobs that went with it. i watched him pushed through the toughest regulations on wall street since the 1930's. i watched him achieve the affordable care act and made sure americans have access to quality, affordable care.
now, where i come from, that was a lot of good work, my friends. that was an incredible accomplishment. but we have more to do. let's not let the republicans cast a pall of collective amnesia over america. honestly, i listen to them talk about cutting taxes on the wealthy, in fact one of them said recently, the problem in 2008 was not too little regulation on wall street, it was too much regulation on wall street. i listen to them. i watch them voting to repeal the affordable care act. make no mistake, we are in a fight to the finish about whether or not we are going to build on the progress we have made or watch it get ripped away. new hampshire is going to have to decide who can go toe to toe with the republicans to make sure they don't wreck us again.
but that is not enough either. it is not enough to tell you what i am against. that is the easy part of politics. we are all against bad stuff, however we define it. i will let you know what i am for. i will let you know what i will do. bill is right. i don't know whether it is my responsibility gene or whatever it is. i wake up every day, trying to think out, can i help one person? maybe i can help 100. i am blessed and i am grateful. i also feel compelled to do everything i can every single day to help as many people as possible and that is what i want to do as your president. [applause]
ms. clinton: number one, job one. more jobs with rising incomes. the american people deserve a raise and they have not had one. i think there are some things the government can and should do. we need more infrastructure jobs. we can put millions of people to work. good jobs that cannot be exported. we can make our economy more competitive. i am looking forward to coming up with some ideas that both work with congress and go around congress, like a national infrastructure bank where we have public and private dollars to make us more competitive. not just with physical infrastructure, virtual infrastructure. it is time we finally got high-speed, affordable internet coverage in every single part of this country. that is an economic issue.
i will tell you, i am one of these people who believe we could have a manufacturing base in america. i am not going to give up on making things. there are two mini good jobs and too many opportunities. i have been to community colleges like this one in new hampshire. i know what you are doing to help prepare people who are young or maybe not so young for the jobs of the future. i want to be a good partner for you. i want to change the tax code, which still gives incentives to businesses to move jobs overseas. told factories overseas instead of upgrading our manufacturing. bring new advanced manufacturing right here to new hampshire. i visited so many places in the state. here in nashua, i went to a venerable manufacturing company. it has been around more than 100 years. in addition to machinery they
had literally 100 years ago, they have some of the most advanced computerized machinery because they are keeping up with the times. they got some help during the great recession. the dozens of people working there and their families are so grateful they did. we need good work that gives people the dignity, not just the income, as important as that is. the dignity of feeling they are contributing to our society. i want more people to believe, once again, they are valued because of what they can do for themselves and others. the best way to get new jobs is to finally combat climate change by really going after clean, renewable energy. [applause]
ms. clinton: i am always just a little amused when the republicans are asked, as they are, what they think of climate change. and then they say, i don't know, i'm not a scientist. you have heard that, right? i have gone across the country trying to answer that question for them. i have said, you know you can remedy this by talking to a scientist. you can go to the universities. you can come to the community college. you can go to high schools and talk to science teachers and they will explain science to you and what we should be doing. [applause] ms. clinton: i have concluded that not all of them are that ignorant. i have concluded they are doing with the koch brothers tell them to. that is bad enough, to be in
that kind of denial. they are missing a great opportunity to grow our economy. some nation is going to be 21st century superpower. i figured is going to be china, germany, or us and i wanted to be us and i will do everything i can as your president to make that happen. i have set some big goals. i said, we are going to deploy half a billion solar panels by the end of my first term. and i was very proud to be endorsed by the league of conservation voters because they know what we can do and what we must do. i am most excited by seeing us begin to set the goals in america. have positive energy around what we can do with energy.
let young people feel they have a future to help pave the way. that is what i want to see. more stem in schools. more young men and women working as engineers. more people understanding this is the challenge of our time and if we put our minds to this, we can do it. we can overcome the denial and special interests and the oil lobby. we can do this but we need leadership that understands it and makes it a priority and accomplishes it. and let me say, as i have said many times, for those of you not from new hampshire, that is the name of a beer company. it is pretty good, too. i want to be the small business president.
that is where the jobs come from and we need to do more to support small businesses. give them the credit they need to get started. the two fastest ways to raise income are to raise the minimum wage, which is too low. and finally, guaranteed equal pay for women's work. [applause] ms. clinton: i am so adamant about this and i am thrilled we have some the great women leaders of our time here with us today. we have stephanie from emily's list.
a great group of women leaders who understand what is at stake for women in this election. [applause] ms. clinton: i feel it is a little bit awkward to be stating the obvious all the time. you do the work, you should get the pay. lilly ledbetter just endorsed me, the woman who fought for equal pay, she worked her way up in a factory in alabama. she worked just as hard, and got just as good a valuations and then one day by accident, she discovered she had never been paid the same as her fellow male supervisors. this is not some urban legend,
my friends. this is happening every day across the state and america. it is bad for women because it is unfair, and the mentally. it is bad for their families. and it is bad for the economy. we are a consumption economy. we need more money to make sure we are building a better future with good results economically. so everything i just told you, the republicans do not agree with. they don't agree with infrastructure, manufacturing. they don't care about raising the minimum wage or equal pay. it is a big difference. these are things i have worked on, cared about four years. i know how essential they are to making sure every american has a fair shot in the race of life. a fair chance to get that
promise of america made real. one of the other big issues we have to think hard about this week is health care. here is where i stand. before was called obamacare, it was called hillary care. [applause] ms. clinton: i tried to get quality, affordable health care. insurance companies and a drug companies, they beat us. that was disappointing. i knew so many people who were desperate to have health care who did not have it. i met a lot of those people in new hampshire, back in 1992. bill and i met people who were just desperate. they had pre-existing
conditions, could not get insurance. prescription drug costs they could not afford. they would get laid off. they would lose their insurance. they were young, starting off. they could not afford it, could not get it. stories have stuck with me so powerfully. after we were not successful, i said, we've got to do something especially for all the families with sick kids i met here. i got to work. worked with democrats and republicans to get the children's health insurance program which ensures 8 million kids. i meet these families here in new hampshire. i meet them because they, and they thanked me. this is what a country is supposed to do for people who need help. don't thank me.
you can understand why i was so thrilled president obama passed and signed the affordable care act. we had democrats, we have been him fighting to the path of universal health care coverage since harry truman. we finally have the base that will enable us to get there. but there are very different responses. on the one hand, the republicans have voted to repeal it 62 times per they sent a repeal to the president's desk everything goodness he was there and be doted. a republican president and republican congress will repeal the act as fast as they possibly can. thank you, thank you.
i want you to know, i want you to know i am not satisfied. i'm not satisfied with what we've got. we have to improve it. we have to get out-of-pocket costs down. co-pays, deductibles, we can't let those interfere with people exercising their right to health care. we can make sure that the insurance companies don't take it over again and say you are out of luck with a pre-existing condition. we have to keep young people on their parents' policies until they are 26 which has been such a lifesaver for them. so i bring out an agenda about how we go from where we are now, 90% coverage, the highest we have ever had. 90% coverage. senator sanders shares my goal of 100% coverage but he has a different approach. he wants us to start over.
he wants us to begin another contentious national debate about what to do with health care. i fundamentally disagree. i don't want us to go back to gridlock. i want to cure diseases. people can't wait for another debate. besides, i think it is a lot easier to get from 90% to 100% than from zero to 100%. i will continue to defend the affordable care act. and tell you what we need to do differently. one area in particular, getting prescription drug costs down. what we are facing today, we are facing skyrocketing drug costs. there are a number of reasons. one is because of a gimmick, that has nothing to do with big banks. speculators and greed.
the purchase of small drug companies, taken over by speculators who then get control of a drug that keeps people alive and increases the price as high as they possibly can. i have met people across america in who have told me this. i will give you a quick story from iowa. i was in clinton, iowa. a woman came to see me. she said, i have to ask you, what can be done about this? she said, i have been taking the same drug since 1988. it started off at $20 a shot. i was able to handle that. went on for years. last month, i go to the pharmacist to fill my prescription. the pharmacist said, it is going to cost you $14,000. i said, what?
show me the paper. she hands me this paper. i said, ok, i get it. the drug company that was making that drug for years, there was no research money going into it, no new discoveries, this was a tried and true drug that had been on the shelf helping people. it had been bought by a company and they proceeded to do whatever they wanted with the price. now, i think what they are doing is predatory pricing. i will have the justice department and every tool at my disposal to go after these companies that are doing this to people who need the help. we've got to be smart about how we prevent these abuses, but we also have to be smart about how we get lower prices. that is why we must finally give medicare in the right to negotiate for lower drug prices with the companies.
i've got to tell you, i know some people think these are just details. i should just fly at 30,000 feet and say, we are going to do this and that, thank you very much. that is not how i believe you should select a president. i want you to know what i want to do for you because i want you to hold me accountable for actually delivering for you. i will tell you something else. i think there was a lot of good work we can do in education and i am proud to have teachers and educators. thank you nea. i do believe that relationships with the teachers are so critical to children's learning. i think it's time we started
supporting teachers, not scapegoating teachers in america. [applause] clinton: there are things we need to do that will actually help more kids succeed. starting with early childhood education and universal prekindergarten. this is a cause for me. i know what a difference it makes. now we have all this rain research which makes it so clear, 80% of your brain is physically formed by the age of three. we have to do more. i found a program in israel and i brought it to arkansas. i want to do whatever i can because we have too many little kids going into school not prepared to learn, not able to take advantage of what their teachers have to offer and need so much help. we have to make college affordable again, something we haven't done.
debt free tuition, and any public or college university. i want to follow up on president obama's plan to make community college free so we get more young people going to community college. [applause] we will take on the student debt problem. we are going to help you refinance your debt and pay thousands of dollars and be happy move into repaying it based on your income, not a fixed interest rate. that is what is suppressing the earnings and opportunity of young people. [applause] sec. clinton: there is a lot to do here at home, let's not forget we have a lot to do in the world. this is a very complicated world. i know that, i was privileged to
be secretary of state for the first time a president obama. [applause] sec. clinton: i spent a lot of hours in the situation room working over problems that don't get to that room unless they are hard. if it isn't hard, somebody else handles it on the way up. once it gets there, and are sitting there with the secretary of defense, the cia director, the president, the vice president, the national security advisor, you know you're facing some hard choices. you have to figure out, pooling your experience, what will keep america safe. what will help our friends and allies and partners are on the world. i am absolutely committed to doing everything i can to deal with the main challenges we face, but also to seize the opportunities in this world.
i have laid out a company heads of approach for dealing with isis and defeating it. i take the threat of terrorism seriously. you saw it in the film. you know. you know what we went through. effort to keep america safe and keep our country safe and protect american families. i want to do it in a smart way that produces the kind of world that we are looking for. i want to go after them over there. i want to have an intensive american-led coalition to go after their leadership and infrastructure to support the arab and kurdish forces on the ground fighting. i will not send american combat troops to iraq or syria because
i don't believe that is part of a smart strategy. certainly work to cut off the flow of foreign funding and fighters. we have to take them online and we need smart young people with our technology companies and others to help us understand how to get underneath their propaganda, the celebration of violence. their radicalization of people in europe, the united states, and elsewhere. but i want to say something else about how we keep ourselves safe. 9/11, we had a public information program in new york called if you see something or hear something suspicious, report it. we had a unified front. we reached out to every community, one enforcement did. leadership did. call the police, the fbi, 911.
anything you see or hear. we saw that attacks were foiled and prevented. despiteork, thankfully, constant intelligence about potential new attacks, has safe. -- has been safe. when you have leading candidates whohe republican side wholt american muslims, insult muslim nations, and the religion of islam, that's not only offensive and shameful, that's dangerous. that is exactly playing into the hands of the terrorists. it isolates and marginalizes people that we want to be part of our first line of defense.
that's why been speaking about it everywhere i go and will continue to do so. it affects our ability to put together a coalition. it includes muslim nations, to go after terrorists over there. i know how hard it is to put together a coalition. i put together a coalition that imposed sanctions on iran and forced the sanctions, drop them to the negotiating table and led to the agreement of putting a lid on their nuclear weapons program. go to nations and ask them to be part of your coalition after you've insulted their religion. that's not the way it works in the real world. we have to be focused on those threats that exist and go after them in a way that rings our country together and brings the world together. this is not a clash between civilizations. it is a clash between barbarity and civilization. that's how we have to look at
it. [applause] finally, let me just say this. i have spent a lot of my life fighting to expand the circle of opportunity and the rights of people. when i listen to the republicans, it chills me. they are against so many of the advances we have made in lifting up the dignity of every person. i want you to know where i stand. i will fight for a woman's right to make their own decisions. [applause] i will fight against defunding planned parenthood, here and everywhere. i will defend marriage equality and fight to end discrimination against the lgbt community. rightsfight for voting and to overturn citizens united.
fight for comprehensive immigration reform. and a path to citizenship. i will fight to make sure we get criminal justice reform and end the era of mass incarceration. i will defend social security against privatization, which is still the goal of the republican party. i will defend the veterans and improve it but i will not republicans harper ties it -- privatize it and takeaway benefits that veterans have earned. fight fortinue to common sense gun safety measures against the gun lobby. so, my friends, this is where i stand. this is where i will fight. but i cannot do it without you. this is going to be a great week of campaigning.
tomorrow night, we have a forum on cnn. the next night we have a debate. i am looking so forward to engaging in the contest of ideas. side, we disagree about ideas. we disagree about how to translate them into positive results for people. on their side, its insults. thing youhe kind of want to hear when you're trying to pick who should be the next president and commander in chief. so new hampshire, come with me this week. make this journey with me. stand up for may. fight for me. when we win, i will stand up and fight for you every single day. thank you and god bless you. ♪
[applause] >> here's a look at the ad released by the hillary clinton campaign featuring former attorney general eric holder. when republicans weren't going after president obama, they're coming after me as attorney general. the cap that i served with hillary clinton, i've known her for almost the five
years. this is a woman who's fought her whole life for children, to
protect civil rights, voting rights. hillary is pushing hard for tougher gun laws and police account ability. if you want to make sure republicans don't take us backward, help hillary move us forward. hillary clinton:

and new hampshire. we don't set the rules in terms of which state is first or second. we have to cover the candidates where they are. there are a lot of people interested in the selection. every four years the american people make a decision to say who should be the leader of the free world. we should be our president. for those who want to follow the process and do it in a way that is completely unfiltered, we are the only place that does that. the other thing to keep in mind is that as you look at this campaign and look at these candidates, you're able to see how they are able to try to close the deal. during the final days of any campaign, there's a lot of everyion on every nuance, news story, every speech, every ad. how is it every candidate trying to rebut the other. in this day and age of social media and twitter, the news cycle is constant. we are the one place that can allow you to take a step back and watch it.
the analysis on other networks and hear of your calls and way in. we are the one place that allows you to see it as it happens and make up your own decision. on the next washington journal, congressman dan kildee who represents flint, michigan, gives us a preview of the house oversight committee meeting on the city's water contamination program. after that, representative ted yoho of florida talks about efforts to combat sext trafficking. and dave leventhal for the campaign 2016 fundraising and spending. you can join the conversation with your calls and comments on facebook and twitter. one of the things i saw throughout the entire timeline is that most of the founding
fathers and early presidents knew in their mind that slavery was wrong. they knew it. willing toren't inconvenience their own lives to make that come true. >> sunday night on q&a, associated press reporter jesse "thend discusses his book invisibles", the untold story of african slaves in the white house. majority of the founding fathers that became president were slave owners. they would bring in slaves from their plantation. george washington did this as well. to new yorkn slaves city and philadelphia from mount vernon. they served as the first domestic staff to the united states president. >> sunday night at 8:00 p.m. eastern on q&a. is covering this presidential campaign from washington post and he is joining us outside of haddock or, new hampshire.
thanks for being with us. day after the iowa caucuses, let's talk about the democrats. what does the new hampshire political candidate best landscape of light? right now it favors the favorite son, bernie sanders, the independents -- the senator fremont. however, hillary clinton did when the primary from 2008. not -- but the tight when she had in iowa suggests she's going to have a tough year commencing democrats to vote for her and send the sanders back across the river. we should expect to see a very focused campaign for her in the last 12 hours. it looks like progressives and of the people, by the people, that kind of talk from her a lot more than we had in previous days. but she is committing to this
pragmatic and practical solutions kind of approach. while sanders may have ideas and enthused a lot of democrats, what he is trying to do is not practical and they will focus on his alternatives for medicare and medicaid, the affordable care act, the fact that he, for years, was not a supporter of new gun-control measures as she was as first lady and a senator. with martin o'malley out of the race, there wasn't much to be had. but clinton really does have a double-digit gap essentially to close up and she will have several opportunities to do it. the cnn form wednesday night and msnbc debate on thursday. the airwaves will be blanketed by television ads and we will see both of them doing a lot of interviews between now and next tuesday. but by the a win narrowest of margins. this comes as earlier polls showing hillary clinton with a wide advantage in iowa. that she come to new hampshire even with a very narrow win with
a sense of strength or a sense of weakness? o'keefe: i think it's a sense of relief that she won the first contest and essentially can afford to lose the second one but what we will have to see is the chance of a recount, a chance that the sanders campaign will ask to make sure everything went as it supposed to. and there are concerns about the fact that the party was using voter tabulations from microsoft. that system seems to have worked, there were other concerns about coin tosses and places where was a tie. was that really the way it was post be done? the fact that she won six in a row was also seen as suspicious. onehis point, she can claim win and has a seven delegate lead. but this does guarantee that that race will continue well
into march, perhaps april depending on how things go after new hampshire. >> let's talk about the republicans and specifically the super pac, right to rise. according to jeb bush, spending more than 26 million in new hampshire and advertising. the bush campaign spending close to $5 million in ads across the state in a week ahead. what jeb bush did not do well in iowa. what is his strategy in new hampshire and what is the republican strategy with rubio and trump and ted cruz? o'keefe: you have those three of the top at least in iowa. the ted cruz campaign doesn't anticipate winning new hampshire. i don't have the demographic favors they have in iowa. there's a lot of socially conservative voters in new hampshire that could not be the type crews could win. so he will be in south carolina tonight and come back to new hampshire spending a little less time worrying about that. at least trump and rubio at the top. and and ohio governor hasek
chris christie are vying for third. the three of them believe they can make the argument that they have the executive experience, and actual result oriented approach to governing and presented themselves and whereas the two senators from iowa are smooth talkers with the legislative record. essentially there's some version of that out on the stump. the bush team does have the benefit of the super pac. i thought incredibly raw moment at a bush event where one woman showed up with all the fires stuffed into her mailbox and confronted a staffer and was waiting flyer that had rubio on it on a window pane. this stuff makes people mad. stop endorsing this. stop supporting it. then she held up a flyer sent by the official campaign and said this is good. we need more of this. it's the kind of literature --
look, politics is a dirty sport. bush has made clear he will not apologize for the attacking and everyone should be scrutinized because he has argued that clinton and the democrats are going to be even more forceful against the event -- eventual gop county. he says he is the best record and can take the blows and will not let up. rubio's numbers have slid in new hampshire after the attack ads supporting bush have aired and they have affected john kasich who has been targeted. in essence, they are working as bush's numbers start to creep up. onlet's talk about that much perceiving from the neighboring senator. massachusetts senator scott brown who ran for senate seat in new hampshire. does his endorsement carry any weight there? don't know. he lost the race here and was he by many republicans as a carpetbagger who took advantage of the weak field and ran an -- was unable to
pick up a seat in new hampshire. he has played a gracious host over the past few months with most of the candidates coming to either his home or some other venue near his home to hold a rally. he had a barbecue with brown and was grilling meat and handing out chips and stuff and the candidate would come and speak. clearly, trump is a brown like republican. i'm making postal statements and coming out of nowhere very quickly to win a race. i think brown is compatible with trump and a northeastern republican and so is trump. there's an ideological agreement when you tie to their records that was just brown is more in line with trump. thatffect it will have is this may be the jerry falwell or of thealin endorsement new hampshire race. the one i get short-term attention but might not help. on the campaign
trail in new hampshire, the first in the nation primary a week from today. his work available online at washington post.com. thank you for being with us. o'keefe: anytime, steve. >> democratic presidential candidate senator bernie sanders narrowly lost the iowa democratic caucuses to hillary clinton. tuesday, he spoke at a get out the vote rally in keene, new hampshire. ♪ [applause]
bernie sanders: thank you. sen. sanders: thank you, keene. me take you are ready for a political revolution. [applause] me like you are tired of establishment politics and establishment economics. i don't know what to say because giselle and eliza said it all but i will try. ont night, in iowa, we took
the most powerful political organization in this country. last night, they came back from a 50 point deficit in the polls. [applause] and last night, we began a political revolution, not just in iowa, not just in new hampshire, but all over this country. [applause] what is this campaign about? it's not about spin. it's not about 32nd tv ads. it is about the american people. it is about the woman i met new hampshire a number of months ago who said, bernie, i am not just
paying off my daughters student debt, i'm paying off my student debt as well. peopleout millions of who are being drowned in debt because they chose to seek a higher education. it is about the united states of america being the only major country on earth that does not have paid family and medical leave. about the workers in vermont and new hampshire who today are working at two or three jobs, trying to cobble together some income because real wages for millions of workers have gone down over the last 30 years. [applause]
it is about a rigged economy. folks and working families are struggling, to keep their heads above water , while almost all new income and wealth is going to the top 1%. it is about a nation today which has more income and wealth inequality than any major country on earth and it is worth here today -- worse here today than any time since 1928. it is about addressing the disgrace. i want you to listen to this. now owning1/10 of 1%
almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%. outrage of the 20 wealthiest people in america now owning more wealth than the bottom half of america, 150 million people. acceptabilitye on of one family, the walton family of walmart, owning more wealth than the bottom 40%. when we talk about a rigged economy in which the rich get richer and almost everybody else let me tell you a little worried about walmart and the walton family which kind of demonstrates what a rigged economy is about. today, walmart is the largest private-sector employer in america.
millions, many of their employees are forced to go on food stamps, medicaid, and the subsidized housing that you pay , becausegh your taxes the walton family refuses to pay their workers a living wage. so, when my republican colleagues go around the country and they talk about welfare abuse, let's be clear. the major welfare of user in america is the wealthiest family in america. the walton family. [applause] sen. sanders: so i say to the
walton family, get off of welfare and pay your workers a living wage. when we talk about what's going on in this country, when we talk about why we have one of the lowest voting turnouts of any major country on earth. so manytalk about why of our people have given up on american democracy, they look at washington and say i am hurting. i am struggling to keep my head above water economically. my kid cannot do college. i cannot afford childcare. what are they doing in washington? i will tell you. getting large campaign contributions from the wealthiest people in this country. know, six years
ago, as a result of one of the most disastrous supreme court decisions in history, citizens united. what the supreme court says by a five to four decision, but they said to the wealthiest people in this country, the billionaires, corporate america. they said you guys already own much of our economy, we will give you the opportunity to buy the united states government. that is precisely what they are trying to do right now. ][booing] ago,sanders: eight years as all of you remember, as a result of the greed, the recklessness, and the illegal behavior of wall street. countryayers of this bailed them out. because the banks were supposedly too big to fail. as a result of the greed of wall
street and the illegal behavior, millions of people lost their homes, they lost their jobs, and they lost their life savings. that's the reality. the wall street journal, two days ago, this is what they said. wall street is emerging as a particularly dominant funding source for republicans and democrats in the presidential campaign finance reports filed with the ftc show. pac's haveer received more than one third of their donations from financial executives, according to data from the nonpartisan center. here's the story. the story is that wall street's brought this country into
the worst economic downturn since the great depression. the story is that the business model of wall street is fraud. the story is that wall street has unlimited sums of money to spend in any way they want, including campaign contributions and speakers. let me tell you a story. this really a couple of five everything that this campaign is about -- this really exemplifies everything this campaign is about and why we need a political revolution. a couple of weeks ago, some of you may have noticed, goldman sachs is one of the large financial institutions on wall street. it was one of those institutions that helped destroy the american economy. reached achs
settlement with the united states government for over $5 billion. they reached that settlement because they were defrauding the american were defrauding the american people and selling worthless packages of subprime mortgage loans. the agreement they reached. i want to tell you what goes on in government and why the american people want a political revolution. particular firm, over the last 25 years, has been a powerhouse in politics. not just that they make enormous amounts of campaign contributions, they are part of the revolving door of wall street to washington. that means that wall street executives go into government, do the services of wall street
and then go back to wall street. in the last 25 years, goldman sachs has provided a democratic and republican administration with secretaries of the treasury. and dozens of other high-ranking officials. two years ago, the ceo of goldman sachs, who himself is a billionaire, came to washington congress are in going to have to cut social security, medicare and medicaid and give huge tax breaks to the wealthy and the large corporations. here is the other side. when we talk about a rigged economy, when you talk about a corrupt campaign-finance system, this is a corrupt campaign-finance system with wall street putting all kinds of money into republican and
democratic candidates. when you talk about a broken criminal justice system, here is where you are. this is why the american people are so angry. some kid gets picked up in new hampshire for possessing marijuana, that kit will have a police record that will stay with him for his entire life. but if you are a wall street behaviorhose illegal destroyed the lives of millions of people, nobody will prosecute you. we are living at a time when not only our banks are too big to fail, bankers are too big to jail. we are going to change that.
[applause] the american vision from way is a vision of justice, of vision of fairness. that means whether you are rich and powerful or whether you are , under oursperate system of law all people should be treated equally. that is what we will bring about. [applause] economy,alk about the it is not only talking about a massive and grotesque and immoral level of wealth and
inequality, it also talks about income inequality. vermont, and here in new hampshire, i know, we have so many people who are struggling hard economically. i have talk to seniors who are trying to get by on $12,000 a year social security. they cannot do that. at a time when mom is out working and dad is working and 58% ofs are out working, all new income generated today is going to the top 1%. oo} creater, we are going to forconomy that works working families and not just the 1%.
[applause] what does it mean? when you have millions of people 9, nineo get by on 10, dollars an hour, not a family or an individual can make it on those wages. that means that we have to recognize that the federal minimum wage today is a starvation wage. we are going to raise the minimum wage to a living wage, $15 an hour over the next few years. [applause] it is not a radical idea to say that is somebody in america works 40 hours a week that
person should not be living in poverty. when we talk about equitable wages, i will hope that every man in this room will stand with the women in the fight for pay equity. [applause] we will not accept the injustice of women making $.79 on the dollar compared to men. there is no rational, economic reason why that is taking place. it is nothing more than
old-fashioned sexism, and together, we will and that. -- end that. when we talk about the economy, it's not just income and wealth and equality. from a moral and economic reason we have to address. it is not only low wages, in which millions of people are struggling and going nowhere in a hurry economically. that also the simple fact unemployment today in america is much higher than the official statistics tell you. everyone month there is a month -- there is an official report, says that unemployment in america is 5%. anybody believe that? no.
buried away there is another report. and that report includes not only people who don't have any jobs, but people who are working part-time when they want to work full-time or have given up looking for work. then you add that together and real unemployment is 9.9%. even worse that we never talk about. unemploymentouth in this country. what we have today is kids graduating high school if the kids are white, 33% are unemployed,r latino's 36%, african-american kids 51%. tied to that reality, is another national tragedy. we have more people in jail than any other country on her.
the wealthiest country in the history of the world and we have more people in jail then do the people in china four times our size. thatybody here thanks there is not a correlation unemployment,outh this portion that lay latino and --, are youican, ready for the second radical idea of the day? here it is. investing in education and jobs for our kids, not jails or incarceration.
when we talk about our economy, it goes without saying that in the united states we should have the best educated workforce in the world. these kind of a no-brain are. 30 or 40 years ago, we did. to date -- today we do not. hampshire and vermont and all over this country, we are hundreds of thousands of bright young people who have the desire, who have the ability and the qualifications to go to college but who are unable to do so for one reason. their families lack the funds. that is unfair to those shown people, it is unfair to our economy because who knows what kind of scientists and engineers and teachers and business people are sitting there that are not
getting the education that they need. 100 or 150 years go brave people, intelligent people, they said we have to fight for public wrong for that it is wealthy families to be able to send their kids to school law our kids are working at factories or on the farms. they fought and they said we will establish public education in new hampshire and vermont, for kids from the first grade through the fourth -- 12 grade. the world has changed over the last 100 years. , aay, in many respects college degree is the equivalent of a high school degree was 50 or 60 years ago.
it seems to me to be obvious that lonely talk about public education today, what we have to be talking about is making public colleges and universities tuition-free. [applause] by the way, it is less expensive to send exit to the university of new hampshire then lock him up. [applause] o'er the university of vermont, whatever. as a nation, we cannot ignore
what this campaign is about, really, is urging the american small,to think big, not not to take for granted what we see every day. out onpeople sleeping the street, that's the way it is. --have a just functional dysfunctional child care system. that's the way it is. we have a young lady here $183,000 in debt, not the result of going to las vegas and losing at the casino, no. that's because she wanted to get a decent education. that that we is are punishing people like that shown woman and millions of others around this country because they wanted to do it
every human being should do and get as much education as they should. [applause] so this is what we are going to do. what we are going to a is right now people who are cheering a lot of debt also very often are paying high interest rates on their debt. i spoke to a guy in nevada a couple of months ago. and unbelievable and sad story. 55 years of age and he has been paying off his student debt for 25 years, he is more in depth today than when he took it out and he is worried that when he gets to cysts -- social security, he will garnishee that payment. what we will do short-term is enable people who have high refinance ats to
the lowest possible interest rates they can find. you have people paying 10% ,nterest rates on student debt and you can refinance her home for 3% or 4%. people should have the right to get the lowe's interest rates they can and will save them substantial amounts of money. criticized, every day know,riticized -- you that sounds great, you will help this young lady out there and you'll make sure that the young people in this country can go to .ollege tuition free thank you, santa claus. but how are you going to pay for all of these things. i will tell you how we are going
to pay for all of this. we are going to impose a tax on wall street speculation. [applause] when wall street posy illegal ourd nearly destroyed economy, you were kind enough to bail them out. very nice of you. know how many of you wanted to do it. now, it is wall street's time to help the middle class. [applause] people say, there is unfair to
our good friends on wall street. here is the reality. you what we can afford to do and what we cannot afford to do, i am being criticized a lot for this. this is what everybody has to understand. well my republican friends and some democrats shudder at the , ia of wealth redistribution want you to understand us. in the last 30 years, there has been a massive redistribution of wealth. the problem is it is gone from the pockets of working families to the top 1/10 of 1%. we are talking about trillions of dollars in wealth.
i don't see the wall street journal, the washington post or any of establishment elite having very much concern about that redistribution of wealth. it is ok when it goes from the middle class to the top 1/10 of 1%. i think maybe it is time that it goes the other way. we need to think big. nobody denies the fact that for us to survive economically and for us to do well economically, we need educated workers for our democracy to thrive, we need an educated population. wall street, you are going to
have to pay more in taxes so our kids will get a good education. let me tell you something else about a rigged economy. you have a enormously profitable corporations. in some cases, making billions of dollars i gear, paying zero .nd federal income tax that is because they stash their profits in the cayman islands, bermuda, and other tax havens. we are losing $100 billion a year in tax revenue. view, when we have an infrastructure in our roads and parts of theany
country is in massive disrepair. rael, airports. we need to rebuild our infrastructure. when we do it to a trillion dollar investment, we can create up to 13 million decent paying jobs. you know how we are going to create those jobs and rebuild we will enducture? this outrageous loophole, and have multinational, profitable corporations start paring their fair share of taxes. [applause] when we talk about the issues facing not only the united states but the world, let me be very clear as a member of both
the environmental committee and the senate energy committee. real,s, climate change is it is caused by human activity, and it is already causing problems all over this country and the world. [applause] and this is what the scientists are telling us. this is scary stuff. but they are telling us is that we do not get our act together by the end of the century, this planet could be between five degrees or 10 degrees fahrenheit warmer. you may think that is not a lot. that is an enormous increase in temperature. that will mean more floods, more droughts, more acidification of
the ocean. right now we are in the process of restoring our oceans with all of the implications. that means rising sea levels, and people throughout the world will be engaged in more conflict as they fight over limited natural resources. view, we have the moral responsibility for the sake of our kids and grandchildren, and future generations to work with china, russia, countries all over this world and taking on the possible fuel industry, transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy efficiency and sustainable energy. [applause] let me connect a few dots. i mentioned before the power of
wall street in getting what they want because of their enormous campaign contributions, and because of the revolving door which places their people and government. today, we have many candidates on the republican side running for president. it is rather amazing that given the fact that virtually the entire scientific community recognizes that climate change is man-made and already causing devastating problems, we do not have one republican candidate for president acknowledging that reality. the scientiste donald trump -- who has analyzed the situation thoroughly, spoken
to many scientists and he has concluded that climate change is a hoax pushed by the chinese. much,hocked me very because i would have thought that trumped -- trump believed it was a hoax was by the mexicans or the muslims. but the chinese? it is laughable in one sense, but it is not laughable in another sense. when you have people ignoring science, i don't know how you make rational, public policy. here's the point. have work with republicans, i am on committees with republicans. they live in this world, they ask sensible questions. how does it happen that on this
change, none of them is prepared to deal with science. the day that any republican candidate told the american people that climate change was with,nd have to be dealt on that day that candidate would lose his campaign funding from the coke brothers, exxon mobil and the fossil fuel industry. that is what a corrupt campaign finance system is about. it is about allowing people on wall street to do illegal, dangerous things with impunity, and to enable presidential candidates to ignore science. that is why together, we are going to overturn citizens united.
here is the issue. thaton the committee helped to write the affordable care act and in my view, and this has done a god of good things. ita lot of good things fit and it absent a the of pre-existing conditions. history will look back and say, i cannot believe it that people went to get an insurance policy, which promised to insure them for everything except what they needed insurance most four. it's like getting fire insurance, but they are not paying if you have a fire. gone. what we have also done is added some 17 plus million people to the ranks of the insured. we had also protected women
against being discriminated against for the crime of being a woman. but, every major country on , our neighbors to the north in canada, thank you canadians. u.k. and france, germany, scandinavia, holland. you name the country. every major country has said that health care is a right for people. in our country, today we have this by the aca, 29 million people without any help insurance. we have even more people who are under insured with large
detectable and large copayments. in that status? people, withany high deductibles mean you don't go to the doctors you when you should. thousands of people a year just for that reason. they go to the doctor when it is too late in the situation is terminal and they die or end up in the hospital in great pain and suffering. furthermore, when we talk about capitacare, we spent per on health care almost three times what the british spend. they guarantee health care to all. 50% more than the french, far more per capita than our canadian neighbors. then on top of all of that -- or as part of that -- we are eating
ripped off big time by the pharmaceutical industry -- yes. we just love the drug companies, don't wait. -- don't we. they tend to charge you any price that you want to any price they want. walk into the pharmacist tomorrow and the price of your medicine is double. nothing you or anybody else can do about it. one out of five americans today cannot afford to fill the prescriptions their doctors are ready. elderly people are cutting their pills and have to try to make their medicine go longer. some of you here in new hampshire may remember a number of years ago i took a group of women from vermont over the canadian border. anybody remember that? i was the first member of congress to make the point about the price differential in canada
and the united states for prescription drugs. i took working-class women who are struggling with breast cancer. i will never forget this. these are women who are struggling for their lives. walked into the pharmacy they are, they got the same medicine they were using in vermont for 1/10 of the price they were paying in the united states. this is more than an outrage. people are dying because they cannot get the medicine that they need. top drug companies made $45 billion in profits. view, health care is a right of all people, not a privilege. in my view we should move to a medicare for all single-payer program.
[applause] [applause] now, is all of you know, there are a lot of people out there who say we cannot do these things. bernie sanders is thinking too big. health care for all? free tuition for colleges and aiversities, creating world-class child care system leading the world in terms of climate change, ending the absurdity of having more people in jail, dealing with income and ingth inequality, end ending racial injustice.
addressing the fact that 11 million undocumented people in this country deserve a path toward citizenship. standing up to the republicans who want to deny a woman the right to control her own body. standing up to those who say that our a brothers and sisters should not have the right to marry -- gay brothers and sisters should not have the right to marry?
saying. opponents are they are not bad people, but they say this is too ambitious. don't you understand that wall street rules. don't you understand that the fossil fuel industry and the coke brothers dominate the political process. i do understand that. but i believe in the american people. am the of you know, i most progressive member of the united states senate. if i go around this country and outrage thatmy billionaires are now buying elections, that wall street has so much impact over our political process. it is not just progressives and
democrats whose share those issues. a lot of moderates, and a lot of republicans who disagree on the but no sensible america believes that the coke brothers and a few of their friends should be able to spend $900 in this-- $900 million election cycle. nobody believes we should accept the reality that the coke others and their friends will spend more money on this campaign than either the democratic or republicans. that is not democracy, that is an oligarchy and the american people know that. what is this campaign about? it is a very simple principle, called political revolution. what it means is that if we
continue along the path of what 2014, ourn november last national election, we are 63 of dust 63% of the people didn't vote, we continue along that path the code brothers, wall street, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, they are as happy as can be. because if we don't get involved in the political process, they will continue to dominate the political process. none of the ideas that i am pie in about our radical the sky ideas. these are the ideas the americo -- american people believe in. ideas, go tocal the republicans. they want to cut social security, medicare and medicaid
and give you tax breaks to millionaires. that's a radical idea. raising the minimum raise, creating jobs, health care for .ll, those aren't radical ideas that is mainstream american ideas. [applause] where are we today? where we are is an understanding that nothing significant will change. no president -- i am the only candidate who obtain this. no president, can do this alone. street andon wall the coke brothers have so much money and power that no president, no matter how well intentioned, no matter how much he wants to make the change will
be able to do it. what do we do then? will we do is wage a political revolution. millionsthat tens of of people, including many who had given up on the political process, many who say i'm not going to vote, these guys won't do anything for me. young people who have not yet in theo become involved political process. working people who are working so hard they don't have time to get involved in the political process. it means that we have got to do a lot of hard work. to our got to go out friends, our coworkers, our neighbors and family. we have got to say that the future of this country is at stake. the future of the world when we deal with climate change. democracy for which by the way, many people fought and died to preserve. democracy is not a spectator sport.
there all deeply grieving new england patriots loss. ok? got it. sport, is a spectator democracy is not a spectator sport. is way we transform america to understand that every person in this room is enormously powerful. yes, wall street, fossil fuel industry has all the money and the corporate media is the corporate media. but you know we have? we have the people. when people stand together, when we do not let the donald trumps and the others divide us up on whether we are born in america, born in mexico, where -- whether
we are gay or straight or male or female, black or white or latino or asian american. when we come together in force and we say to washington, we demand a government that notesents all of us, and just a handful of billionaires. on the day we transform america. [applause] next tuesday, new hampshire will hold the first primary in the country. and you will have the opportunity to help lead this country in a very, very, different direction. please come out and vote, please bring your friends and everybody you know.
shortly after the rally, senator standers spoke with reporters on his narrow loss in the iowa democratic caucuses. >> good afternoon. how are you? let me just say a few words if i might. i -- as i go around this is an issuet i find that brings people together. corruptutrage of a campaign-finance system. just had a report that came out yesterday from the wall street journal analyzing super pack
funding, it turns out that wall street was again is pouring huge amounts of money into the political process. it seems to me that at a time when we all know what wall street did to the economy of the united states of america, and now what we are seeing is trying to protect themselves by spending huge amounts of money in super packs and in other ways to it is clear to me that we need real campaign-finance reform which overturns citizens united and in my view moves the public funding of elections. that will be a major, major, issue that a sanders administrations will -- administration will do what. we cannot continue to have a handful of people in wall street, the fossil fuel industry and the drug companies huge campaign contributions determine what happens in washington.
that weud and gratified have up to this point in the campaign received more individual campaign contributions than any campaign in the history of the united some 3.5 america, million campaign contributions, averaging $27 of peas. myt contrasts very much with opponents on the republican and democratic side. iowanight in i will, -- in , we started off in that state, , 50, 60g on the poll 40 points behind. no money or political organization and note name recognition. we fought secretary clinton to a virtual tie. we have not even seen all of the breakdown of the election results.
i am proud of the 15,000 volunteers that we had on the ground who made that victory possible. establishment in this country, the political establishment, economic establishment is getting nervous. what they are getting nervous about is that millions of people will now become engaged in what i call a political revolution, that voter turnout will go up combat working people will become engaged, young people will become engaged. we will not only when the general election, but we will create a government and washington that works for all of us and not just wealthy campaign contributors. thank you. are you conceding the race and i walked? we want to look at some of the numbers. as i understand it, there were some precincts where della gritz were one with a flip of a coin.
were one with a flip of a coin. we will take a look at it. again -- i was- on a plane last night, our people in iowa are taking a look at that. i just think it is kind of unfortunate -- again, i don't want to misspeak. it may be the case that some delegates were based on the flip of a coin. you, monday? are secretary clinton won here in 2008. secretary clinton has a formidable political the politicalnd establishment on her side.
we are taking nothing for granted, trust me we are not. we are going to work as hard as we can. we just did this wonderful meeting here in keene. we will be all over this state. volunteersk with our to bring out as many people as possible, and we look forward to winning. we take nothing for granted. has calledclinton herself a progressive with a plan. do you think she is a progressive? >> on sundays, yes. days, yes. i think it is very hard to be a real progressive attitude take on the establishment in a way that i think has to be taken when you become as dependent as she has to her super pack and in other ways on wall street. >> do you think people should
read the new book buyers remorse, a critique of obama and liberals should be looking for more. is the heir tok barack obama, you are hillary clinton? >> me ist is disturbing to that the republican party, in a partisan way, and issa reality of where we were seven years ago and where we were seven years ago is we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. the world's financial system was on the verge of collapse, and a 1.4 trillion dollars deficit, the largest deficit in our history. i believe that under obama and joe biden we have made huge progress. the economy is not anywhere near i want it to be but nobody can deny the fact that we has made
-- we have made progress. .he resident deserves credit i think the next president of the united states has got to be aggressive in bringing people into the political process. that is what i mean by a political revolution. unless we changed that political dynamic, it will be wall street and the drug companies and the fossil fuel industry because of their great power, they will be able to continue the legislative process and washington. that is what i think, i wrote and what i believe the next president has got to do everything to bring more people into the process. yes? later, --e debate i want you to remember this. if anyone wants to argue with
me, find your the dnc decided that they wanted to do six debates. we were not consulted in we were told a few hours before that is the way it is. six debates. day one along with governor o'malley, i think we should have more debate. clinton campaign was not interested in more debates. go -- a week ago secretary clinton decided she wanted to change the rules and was no longer happy with what the dnc had proposed and wanted the debate in new hampshire. i like debates. everybody in vermont knows i like debates. i enjoy it. about whatne with me we said, ok if you want to do another debate in new hampshire, i understand.
but we will do other debates as well. we propose the a debate in california, we proposed a debate michigan whatn the clinton people said is they wanted to do the debate as i recall after the primary. that did not make a whole lot of sense. now we are back to what i think makes sense. that is secretary clinton represented new york state in the senate for seven years, i believe. i would like to see us do at debate in new york city. amazed thate bit secretary clinton does not want to have a debate in the state that she represented seven years and the senate. that is what we would like. to answer your question, i hope it will be was all that we will have three more debates and i hope they will be in california, michigan and new york's date. -- new york state.
hope in new hampshire. i hope so we are still working on the details. debate agree to have a in the state that she represented for seven years. >> if it turns out that you did hold 2/10 of 1% short in iowa, how long are -- will that keep you up at night? >> not at all. i slept like a log last night. in all due respect, it is all i will. what about new hampshire -- it is all iowa. iowad phenomenally well in last night. we made history. we overcame a 50 point deficit in terms of delegates, i don't know what it is, one or two points behind, what do you need 2500 delegates. what does that mean? we are fighting in new hampshire, then in nevada and soh
