6:02 am
las vegas radio host joe heidi harris, radio show host. good to see you. thanks for joining us. what is your take on the election so far? >> ascend, i can't figure out this trump thing for anything. i don't get it. that's why some of my conservative friends are backing them. he is not a conservative and i don't understand why any conservative that back in. i know they are disgusted and tired of being lied to. i get that. i just don't get it. maria: he just doesn't go into specifics. the people don't really care. they don't want to get the specifics. >> he is projecting strength. but it has seven of weakness from obama and the republicans. john boehner has been ousted, cantor has been ousted.
6:03 am
the young guns are broken. people look at government and elected officials has failed. they have everything to the level of leadership. leave a vacuum which the republicans have done and project strength. whether you agree or disagree, he is projecting strength. maria: deck and coming up or without? dagen: that's right. the tram supporters are less ideological. connell mcshane was in some caroline over the weekend and he says they don't talk about the issues at all. he's strong, he's going to take charge. certainly supporters are more populist and the traditional voters in recent years. i will point out something very telling about donald trump and his ability to lure more people. i talked to them on the phone. it is a two-way street. i tell him what i think is overstepping. maria: what does that tell us?
6:04 am
>> he is kind of tipped his hat. he's going to be revealing slowly people who he sees as great as visors. maybe people who will be part of a trump cabinet, who will be part of a child white house. i think rudy giuliani is a very interesting republican. he certainly beloved in terms of him being a mayor. maria: what do you think about that? would you imagine a place for giuliani in a trump cabinet? >> i think a trump cabinet would be fascinating. it would do the same old. why not rudy giuliani for heaven sakes. people do while today because we love a good show. he's obviously got a bruise here hotel here. the circus continues. it is so unbelievable to me. maria: what is your take on the ted cruz story fire in a spokesperson targeting marker revealed. let me get your reaction. >> this morning i asked for rick
6:05 am
tyler's resignation. i have made clear in this campaign that we will conduct this campaign with the very highest standards of integrity. maria: the campaign lashed out at crews calling him a liar. what are your thoughts? >> i was at a ted cruz rally yesterday that ended about 2:00 in the afternoon and there was no mention at all. they must've been doing this behind the scenes of the morning. ultimately when you run for office you can't control everything that goes on. when something bad happens like that, heads have to roll. he did the right thing and fired his campaign manager. >> if you look at this in context, nobody has been fired. i have known rick tyler a long time. i've known him over the years. solid guy, worked for a lot of different people. i don't know what happened in the background. i don't think any of us can claim that.
6:06 am
it's hard to fire somebody when he's actually one of the top-ranked guys were running in campaigns. the fact he has something been look bad by the iowa secretary of state for the mailer sent out because it mimics a document. he's got to do something to restart their it's true or false or whatever. maria: i think that's true. being that getting rid of right tyler. senator crews that night is about him. he may not always be directly your fault of the will was in the of rick tyler perry is going to have to shake the thought of this has stuck with him for a very long time.
6:07 am
>> any impact to market so far? the insurgency is part of an overall insurgency markets are facing. you think this is part of it? >> it's a real dampening effect. you are not sure what the policies are. how can you make an investment of how you act without knowledge other than building the wall of his policies? then you take the other side with bernie sanders and hillary clinton and you are scared to move on top of china. it is really -- i don't want to thank the negative effect, but it didn't mean effect on the market. dagen: just want to add something. brick inspired by the cruz campaign. it shows none of these other politicians can compete with donald trump in terms of communication, the way he uses social media. they foul up and somebody gets fired. trump al-assad and he goes i don't care.
6:08 am
people go okay. >> he says they won't put up with what you want to throw at me. i agree with you. >> we are laughing on the fact. i was on the show one time and you gave a faint our name on the internet and it spit out some kind of offensive. dagen: was like the insult generator. maria: heidi, we'll keep watching. thanks so much. we will be listening. don't forget to tune in for special coverage of the republican caucus that all begins tonight at 11:00 p.m. eastern live on the thought that were. before we had to break them futures edged lower this morning that the dow jones industrial

maria: welcome back. new developments in the government's dispute with apple. finding 51% of americans say apple should assist the fbi and the first to unlock the iphone use with tim iphone use the san bernardino attacker. the government or in a commission to look at the problems posed by encryption. apple is reportedly bought another faith be a canterbury now. taking data from a dozen other items in criminal cases in dispute over to this one. protests planned across the country in support of apple's refusal to hack the iphone. in an interview with "financial times," microsoft cofounder bill gates says he is back in the fbi's request to get into the phone. he is talking about national security, saying this is something that needs to be done. we keep having this discussion
6:22 am
in the i.t. of civil liberties getting impacted versus the company helping the government with national security issues is a rail in port and sort of at a crossroads. >> we have these people, they call themselves elected officials who are representatives. they need to be brought into the picture. what we have this technology advanced to the point where legislative policy doesn't keep up with technology. that is part of the problem. we need them to match. they will never be perfect. i don't want to give up civil liberties, but we recognize about security you don't have a life. yet another country. there is a way to do this technologically speaking. they can compartmentalize, redo the court order. they can narrow it so apple does this within apple and destroys the code that they've written. of course the people you can't destroy in their head who create this.
6:23 am
you can compartmentalize us like you had a missile launch. you had two keys that needed to be used in the military. you can do the same approach and break into the phone. also another aspect into it. it is the property of the county. dagen: what is interesting about the pew survey is there pew survey as there's almost an identical share of republicans versus democrats favor of opening the iphone. 56% of republicans, 55% of democrats. tim caucuses and the pr battle. that is why he came up last week in the first place. he was trying to sway people. we're all such libertarians can the ranch by would-be republican nominee for the white house. the magazines in pain you have a terrorist who did this did not try to ask this communication the person has. it violates common sense. if you can isolate the phone it makes no sense.
6:24 am
>> encryption -- the government can't do it. take 10 tries to get it done. i want our liberties protect it. there's got to be a way to get this done without compromising a year but the bigger picture than one phone. what is that it may be perishable. dagen: apple should cooperate essentially. at&t has said the same vein, disagreed with apple and said he understands tim cook's decision, but it's his decision to make. it's an issue decided by the american people in congress, not by companies. telecom companies have regulations in place that laws require companies to design equipment to ensure they can comply with court orders. the smartphone makers had design equipment so they don't have to comply with court order.
6:25 am
dagen: telecom is not in the bag. maria: listen, the letters in the road if the companies to do their best to protect technology, but it would be relentlessly attacked by hackers and cybercriminals. allowing bad guys to get into their phone easily. i don't know. if there were just this one phone, it would be really easy. >> here's another say to the business end here but about other countries? what if china says get into the phone? if you are a shareholder buying the stock come to you trust that company. there is a business angle to this, which is the future of apple. civil liberties, security, business of the company. 85% of the operating systems out there. apple has got some serious concerns. i do say this that what i think
6:26 am
is a starting point here is to have apple's attorneys and experts in with the fbi in front of the judge. both have representation. the >> they are up or with each other. >> elise is being done in the corporate belongs. dagen: this isn't the first time. it's been happening time and again. maria: 175 funds that they can't unlock or they want more information from those found about drug arrests, criminal activity. we are going to talk with the former new york city police commissioner ray kelley. join us at this take on the battle between apple and the government coming up in the program. you want to stay with us for that. apple has until friday to respond to the court order. take a short break. the guidance sends fit bit shares crashing in the free market. the stock is about to open.

6:38 am
in 2011 as well,. >> got worse for banks. that's all i'm worried about. you're right on the defensive side but it's been played out in the correction. >> in 2011, maria, can tell you i was here, i was very aggressively optimistic of that stage. >> maria: yeah. >> there's a chess game going on here. you could make that call and you knew that they were going to restimulate, here, we don't have a lot of weapons on the policy side, i'm not worried about that in closing the economy because we don't really need them but we do have to have the markets and the economy clear on their own this time around, we can't rely on big central bank action. look at what happened at japan, they cut negative rates. >> maria: was that a little
6:39 am
desperate? >> well, that didn't work so well. >> maria: you like japan. negative rates. >> i know they're trying -- they're doing anything they could do to break the cycle of deflation whether you agree with them or not, what i'm interested is one of the euros was trying to get to pay companies in japan. >> dagen: did you see the market, deflation is not a concern anymore. and i think that'll be -- optimism will be to stephen's point. >> do i want to stress t banking system is in great shape here, we are not head to go an '08-'09

aren't going to have the money. when you're doing one state at a time, you can put your whole team there, you can chris cross even south carolina which is a big state, once you get to multiple states, we had to do an extra campaign. >> maria: right. you can't be at all places. >> you can't do that. >> the way kasich is presenting to the public is gathering momentum. he's still getting momentum in the general public. >> if i was him i would get a satellite truck and green screen and do local interviews in every network as oppose to do rallies because he will run out of money tomorrow. >> dagen: he's better in aurally than tv. >> fair point. >> dagen: you saw the exchange of the young man that gave him a hug, that's very effective but he needs dozens and dozen offense those moments. >> there's not enough time.

7:07 am
that plays, that's going to play all over the country because that just puts the democratic narrative about being the old-white man party to bed. i think rubio is going to have a slot. >> dagen: i want to know about trump's money spent, largely self-funded. he's gotten contributions from folks. in terms of how much more money does he need to spend in the southern states and is he there spending it? the play book has been thrown out for everybody but him. >> the one thing is he's not doing is idiot consultants, he was exactly right about the bush's and how much tv they spent. >> maria: now, that was unbelievable. >> when you're the one selling that tv, you get a legal kickback. of course, they are going to try to sell you a bunch of tv. trump is smarter than that. all the money that bush wasted on tv, literally trump has what
7:08 am
you think unlimited funds and he spent the least amount of money. i think whoever is doing his media campaign is smart enough -- >> dagen: what about the ground game? >> that's the question. >> dagen: cruz started building ground game middle of last year. people were still talking about it even football season what they were doing with snapchat during football games. >> cruz has had a bad few frequency where he is starting to get hillary clinton comparisons. >> maria: yesterday we had on sanders supportest, founders of ben and jerry's ice cream. i want to get your take on this. >> maria: it's important that they understand what they're talking about so i just want to make sure that you're understanding where we are in terms of -- what do you think the highest tax rate should be? >> boy, as i said u i'm not an
7:09 am
economist, i don't think anybody right now can say what that's going to be. >> but i will tell you, i do believe along with the majority of people in the upper incomes that we should be paying more taxes. >> maria: the majority of upper income should be paying more taxes. i don't feel that they actually understood bernie sanders' tax plan number one, they came out for bernie sanders and secondly, this whole idea that the highest earners do not pay their fair share is not true. >> correct. but when you get to say free all of the time, you get more press, i guess. by the way, the earlier segment for dating site for bernie sanders, feel the burn with

7:40 am
hands. when you start paying much more in tax and start looking at all the the policies you didn't want you can say that's because people decided they didn't want donald trump and didn't vote. >> just a few years ago donald trump said he wanted higher taxes on people and aban daned that because he wanted to run for the republican party. check out this footage where an escalator reversed direction. dozens of people went tumbling. >> no way. >> coming up, -- my shoe got stuck and my foot came out of it. irving missed a huge game.

the bottom line is bernie sanders has said and making more than $250,000 you could see as high as 92% tax rate. >> if you think about their the socialism sorbet i don't think a lot of people will want to buy it. we know they can crush through taxes and mandates and the regulations that come out. i don't think the american people will buy this at all. >> it's unbelieveable to me. i understand tkeurbt almost seems like some of his strongest supporters don't understand his policies it' up clear that they have no idea about sanders tax plan. >> well, very few people do and that's why i think bernie sanders or hillary clinton would not be good as president in terms of the job, the economy -bgs nationality security, i think that we are seeing country heading in the wrong direction
8:04 am
and don't want to continue. this that direction or put our foot on the accelerator. >> you see a growth plan out there that you think can move the needle towards economic growth and job creation and it has with taxes an i think the president is heavy handed. it makes ate lot easier. . it's the private sector and ought to be seen in the economy >> let me switch gears and ask you about the nomination. the president staid any push back won't go very far. he won't nominate his pick. how codo you see this playing out? >> i ought to have a saying. >> the president should make a rough time appointment so --
8:05 am
that person should make up lifetime in the voters voices will be heard. >> let me shift on that you wrote recently and you took a look and the president's plan should plan. he wants to put a $10 tax on oil. you think it's a tax on america's oil industry. >> it goes right to the middle class hardworking taxpayers. the president in his budget proposed a 24-cent tax. it plays in the hands of russia and to iran. an the energy is called the master resource for a reason. it powers our economy, it powers our military. so when the president does this and puts it in a competitive disadvantage overseas, he is
8:06 am
seating the market to russia, to iran and to others at a time when we ought to be growing our own economy and using our own gin resources. hillary clinton has said that in terms of energy development on public lands as president she said it would be a done deal, there would be no more energy development of fossil fuels where 25% of all the the energy we use in this country comes from public lands and billions in tax revenue comes from that energy. >> senator, at the same time, it's daegan mcdowell, this is where the jobs are being lost is in the energy sector and you have rhetoric from elected officials and from those democrats from the campaign trail talking down our gin business. when will they get religion and realize this is about our fashional security, about job creation when we need those very job? es. >> you're right. energy security is national security.
8:07 am
we ought to be focusing on red, white and blue american gin. the president has this fixisat o*eu n with green energy and there is a huge gap between reliable energy and renewable energy. it's a vast gap that is not easily going to be closed. we need all the the sources of energy. we have an abundance of energy in the united states and we should keep that as competitive in the world stage. question have an energy -- this is a bill that has passed 18-4 in the senate with the democrats are holding it hostage now and they want more money from flint. this bill allows for us to export and make it easier to export and lick we tpaoeu natural -- liquefy natural gas. we ought to sell it to our friends overseas who want to buy it. >> are you going to be able to see things get done with the new
8:08 am
president? conservatives are upset by that. it basically blows off any push back and gives president obama an okay to all of his agenda whether it be the refugees or obama care, who out there do you think in the campaign is going to be the one to bring people together and will you be able to work best with? >> i will support who ever is nominate bid the republican party and any one of them will be better than hillary clinton and bernie sanders in terms of jobs, the economy, in terms of consumers, in terms of our national security, in terms of international activities. they are going to be focused on jobs and focused on the the economy. we have a president who hasn't really done that. that's why 70% of americans say that they believe the country is headed in the wrong direction and heading far change. >> this is david webb, i have a question about tax policy. the candidates have put out some
8:09 am
form of tax policy, we need reform in this country. if the tax starts working heavily on tax reform getting us to fix the tax code, will the senate stand firmly and fight with the republicans on this? the problem is it hasn't been fixed over the years. >> you're right the last time was done is when it was divided government when ronald reagan was the president and had tip o'neill as speaker of the house. that left a wonderful opportunity to get it done. any tax reform he wants to start with a trillion of new tax revenue. i don't think that's the way to do it. we need to lower the rates and there are things we can do to simplify the tax code. paul ryan is on the the right track as the speaker of the house and i want to help them. >> there seems to be a breakdown in the messaging coming from the republican party. a unifyed message that is driven
8:10 am
toward understanding things reich what a $10-barrel on tax oil needs. how can you fix the messaging coming from a party? >> well, i think it's pretty clear the american people see that the country is heading in the wrong direction and want to undo the damage that president obama has done to our economy. so when we talk about what the president is proposing with the gas tax, 24-cents a gal hon and said it's a -- gallon and said it's a tax on oil. the american people realize that that's going to be a tax on them when they see that they are paying 26 more at the tank. that's what the president has proposeed in his budget. even the democrats are run aeug way what the president is talking about. i think this debate is going to be about jobs, the economy, national security and i think that's a good ground for republicans to be fighting on when you see what this president

8:21 am
i'm loving this -- and thousands of people and lots of fun and lots all over the country. you're right, politics is what we do, it's supposed to be fun. for donald trump i have a questioning and a challenge for him. going in the primaries, he's got to come out 50%-55% of support or is it a question of can rubio or cruz keep bleeding away. >> rubio has not won a contest yet and there's people on television saying rubio has all the the momentum. i don't understand that. >> there's so much political gravity in this. you have to garner more and more as the support as the others

8:23 am
he tweeted this because his negatives are higher than hers are. he trails her in the head-to-head in a fox news poll at least the latest one. these are the same polls that were showing that south carolina was coming really close. there are going to be four points at end of the polls that we were showing. they rally behind the front runner it's the republican party wants to throw in with the democrats to throw off trump if these nominee, trump will have a difficult time. we will put together a new coalition, we will help trump on some of these issues but will move toward the grass roots of the country put a new coalition back together, i don't see how you don't feed hillary. i disagree with his analysis on globalleism, trade and immigration. i think trump goes into a city like chicago and he challenges what the democrats have done to
8:24 am
chicago, detroit, la, hartford, connecticut, atlanta. i think he has a tour of this country that turns politics upside down if he wants to do it. does he need to get more specific when he's up against hillary who will talk and tout her experience. i think he should and probably will -- but i think he should and he will. we have to get more specific. i was listening to raoub you at -- i was listening to rubio at his rally yesterday, you tellle me how that works with the trance pacific partnership and how that works that millions of people who are workers in the could country. you tell that to a 50-year-old guy who got laid off by disney to train a his foreign replacement. >> do you think there their ever

8:31 am
san bernardino shooting in the fight against apple. >> the victims deserve access to the cell phone or to have the government obtain that information. there's a lot of unanswered questions here and this is the biggest terrorist act we've had in decades. at the same time, i'm hoping that this is going to propel the type of debate that we're seeing here and that needs to play out in congress. we need legislation to adapt and adopt procedures and protocols to deal with this changing technology. >> all of this as microsoft co-founder bill gates says this morning he is in favor of the fbi's efforts to unlock the iphone. and it's in line with how americans feel as well. a study from pew research say 51% of the american people support the fbi on this. joining us is former new york city police commissioner ray kelly with more analysis, good to see you, ray. >> good to be with you, maria. maria: i was struck by the fact there are currently 175 phones in new york that, you know, lawmakers are trying to unlock.
8:32 am
the d.a., trying to unlock them and you know, cyrus vance now saying his office has these iphones that he believes can, if he gets into these iphones, they can help them with some important drug cases, criminal cases, is that right? >> sure. i think this ultimately has to be solved by congress. i'm not certain they want to take it on, but it's an issue that requires a law. i think this particular case will go to the supreme court because tim cook really has no alternative now. he's drawn a line in the sand so he's got to show his consumer base he's fighting for them. i'm surprised it wasn't handled in private and it really is, as far as this case, it is about one phone. because apple will control the whole process. i think what the fbi is looking for is the phone to be taken and sort of turned over to them without this capacity to turn off after ten tries.
8:33 am
so that is totally within the baliwick of apple. i don't see why it raises the potential for it to be hacked. maria: let me read you something tim cook is saying because this really struck me because tim cook is saying, if the government can use the all rights act to make it easier to unlock your iphone, it would have the power to reach into anyone's device to capture their data. the government could extend this breach of privacy and demand that apple build surveillance software to intercept your records or health data, track your location or even access your phone's microphone or camera without your knowledge. >> you need a judicial decree. that's what the fourth amendment is all about. it's against unreasonable search. it's absent is warrant, that's based on both an affirmation. and that's the system of government that we have here. it goes back hundreds of years. so, just willy nilly do these sorts of things, no, it's know the going to happen, it doesn't
8:34 am
happen. dagen: are you heartened that tim cook is trying to frighten americans into his corner in part with this, but this, right now it seems like at least on that pew survey, they're siding with the fbi and the right, you know, to basically investigate a terrorist attack. maria: because it's national security. dagen: does that make you think, as a member of law enforcement does that make you feel better? >> everyone wants privacy, but the public is concerned about its safety and now they're moving to the side of security. this was a horrendous attack, 14 people were killed, it's reasonable to think that there's important information in that phone. the whole thing sounds very reasonable in my mind, as far as government trying to get this information. i think tim cook drew the line in the sand probably the wrong place with the 5 c phones, this technology is improving, 6, the 6s, apparently they say that
8:35 am
it's impossible to get into tho those. dagen: essentially with the newer smart phones that no member of law enforcement, or no lawyer could ever even with a valid search warrant search these phones, so this is going to have to be something congress-- >> it's important to note, this is what apple is advertising and said in their advertisements, it's not-- you can't reach it through a warrant, which is something for us all to think about because this is not the government, this is apple saying that you can't reach this information. maria: i think it's important, you know why? looking at this, this is why we need free market so much. i can't believe that apple and google, android, control 90% of mobile communications. this should not be up to apple. dagen: that's-- >> they're the ones that are making this determination. that's why congress has got to get involved. it's a little like gun control, i think it's seen as the third rail, maybe as the polls come
8:36 am
out and the public moves perhaps more towards the government's side, then you may see some legislation come from congress. >> that's dagen's point, you've got two main fear, your privacy fear and what's trumping that, sorry to use the term, is the fear of panic and associated with ta terrorist event and that's proving to be a bigger fear going along with what dagen is suggesting. >> the commissioner, the difference between intelligence and law enforcement and you kind of alluded to that earlier, but expand on that, we have an intelligence aspect to this, we want to find out what the terrorists are communicating with that. and it's a difficult balance. >> yeah, and law enforcement, of course, is doing all of their activity pursuant to the constitution and certainly restrictions abound in that area, but as far as intelligence is concerned, it's a little less restrictive. they have more options to get information than law enforcement does.
8:37 am
>> should they have done this in private then? if this was done in private it could have been dealt with as an intelligence operation. >> i don't know why they didn't do it in private. maria: because it's pr. i go back to my first instinct on this story, tim cook has to make a big deal of this, because of china, russia, otherwise they think that apple is in the pocket of the u.s. government. >> these countries could demand apple to do this. maria: pr, they want the customers, including international customers, we're protecting your data. >> and there are demonstrations right now, people in front of apple store, supporting apple. so, i think-- i love my iphone, by the way, i think it's a phenomenal instrument, but, yeah, i think it's good for business on the part of apple. maria: commissioner, i've got to ask you your take on the obama budget. this is unbelievable that the obama administration moved in
8:38 am
its budget to cut nearly $300 million from the urban area security initiative when schumer objected to the iran deal. what is your take on this cut to new york security? >> well, i think chuck schumer has been a stallwart for getting resources for new york city. don't forget, this city has had two major attacks, 2700 people killed here. on the bloomberg we had 16 plots and more plots against the city. and this is still the number one target, no question about it. the city needs those resources and this was such a dramatic cut, a lot of people think that it was done just to sort of stick a knife in chuck schumer because of his opposition to the iranian plan. that may very well be. maria: to play politics with something so important. >> with security. >> absolutely, that's washington. that's what happened all the time, but this city is still the number one target, still needs those resources.
8:39 am
maria: so, i mean, just because schumer said he was against the iran deal? >> who knows what the inner workings are there. maria: but he wanted to get new york back. but it was interesting, the vehemence with which he was attacked by josh ernest, the white house spokesperson, it looked like they prepared for this, looked like maybe they did it to goad him into it because it was a very, very direct attack. you didn't see that, schumer is a pretty important person in the democratic party. maria: in other words, they knew this was coming and people were going to say, hey, looking you cut money going to new york security because you don't like the fact that schumer went against your iran deal? >> it's certainly possible. we don't know with precision, but it looks like that. maria: commissioner, good to see you. >> good to see you. maria: thank you so much for joining us, former new york police commissioner, ray kelly. and check out jo vigilance", a

8:41 am
newt campaign? >> well, doesn't get any-- >> frankly, i don't want an obama nomination, i want somebody the caliber of a scalia. francly my suggestion, i've been public about it, i would put andrew napolitano on the bench. >> they ought to stick to making ice cream instead of tax policy. if you think about their socialism sorbet, i don't think a lot of people are going to want to buy it. shouldn't what makes each of us a unique individual,

8:48 am
happiness, and that's why their ice cream taking a spoon and distributing that chocolate and that chocolate is you and they're going to break it up and throw it to the masses. maria: and that's no secret, distribution of wealth. >> i think there's an intellectual dishonesty what he's talking about. socialism in europe is a broad value-added tax on everybody, what you consume, services and goods. everybody gets hit. they think that, bernie sanders' supporters think that the super rich are going to pay for everything for everybody else, it doesn't work that way economically. >> we know that everything can't be free with everybody, they believe in the idea behind bernie's philosophy, that self-sacrifice, that your life doesn't matter and bernie says that explicitly, greater good, you are your brother's keeper. your money isn't yours, but
8:49 am
your neighbor's kids are yours, they're your responsibility. maria: and they kept comparing it to social security. in social security everybody pays in and i said are you aware that social security is on the way to bankruptcy? >> and a triumph. . those of left of center of social security, and trillions of dollars of bankrupt, to be a triumph under their watch. it's all about in my opinion, eliminating the individual. socialism is the reputation of the individual. america is based on your life and liberty and happiness, none of that matters. dagen: who makes better decision about you, your life, your money, you or the government? and bernie sanders and his followers think that the government deserves to make decisions about your money and health, that's the direction we're going. >> we have jonathan from the capitalist pig next to us. i love that about jonathan.
