8:00 pm
it is our campaign that is creating the excitement and enthusiasm which will result in a huge voter turnout in november. let me just say for a moment a few of the very important differences between secretary clinton and myself. and one of them has to do with how you raise money for a campaign. [ applause ] when we began this campaign, we had to make a very simple decision and that decision was should we do what every other campaign does and start a super pack? we agreed with you.
8:01 pm
we didn't want a super pack. we don't need a super pack. we don't represent wall street, corporate america, or the billionaire class. [ applause ] so, we did it a different way. different than any other campaign. we went to the working families and the middle class of this country and what we said is if you want a candidate who's prepared to take on big money interests, protect and expand the middle class of this country, help us out and what happened was unbelievable. up to this point we have now received almost 6 million individual campaign contributions. [ applause ]
8:02 pm
more contributions than any campaign in the history of the united states of america. [ applause ] anybody here know what the average contribution is? $27. to paraphrase abraham lincoln at get getties burg, this is a campaign by the people, for the people. now, secretary clinton did it in a slightly different way. she established several super
8:03 pm
pack packs and her largest super pack recently reported raising $25 million in special interest money including 15 million from wall street. [ crowd boos] >> in addition, as many of you know, secretary clinton has given speeches behind closed doors to large wall street financial institutions for $225,000 a speech. [ crowd boos] >> now, i kind of think that if somebody's going to pay you 225,000 for a speech, it must be a mind blowing brilliant, earth shattering speech. it must be written in shakespearean, it must be a speech that will uplift the
8:04 pm
entire world. therefore, i think the secretary should release the transcripts of that speech. [ applause ] now, secretary clinton says she's preirpapared to release t transcripts if other candidates release their transcripts. so, tonight, here in this beautiful baseball field, i am prepared to make a dramatic announcement. are you ready? [ applause ] tonight in the beautiful city of seattle, i am announcing that i will release all of the transcripts of my speeches to wall street. [ applause ]
8:05 pm
there aren't any. no speeches. i just can't understand why secretary clinton gets $225,000 and i can't even get a dam invitation to speak to wall street. i don't know why. forget 225. what about 20 thousand, 18 bucks, can't get it. and maybe, maybe, maybe it has something to do with the fact that wall street would not be interest saided in hearing what have to say. [ applause ] so my cell phone is on. i am waiting the call from wall street. if i get that call and if i get
8:06 pm
that invitation, this is what i will tell them. i will tell them that their greed and recklessness and illegal behavior drove this country into the worst economic down turn since the great depression of the 1930s. [ applause ] i will tell them that the middle class of this country bailed them out because their banks were too big to fail but today three out of the four largest banks are bigger than they were when we bailed them out because they were too big to fail. [ crowd boos] and i will tell them that when a handful of financial institutions has so much economic and political power, it is time to a, reestablish, glass
8:07 pm
steel legislation and it is time to break them up. we need a financial institution in this country which provides affordable loans to small and medium sized businesses and to the working families of this country not financial institutions that exist as an island unto themselves worried only about their profits. [ applause ] now, this campaign is doing well because we are listening to the american people and not just wealthy campaign contributors.
8:08 pm
we are listening to working people who tell me they can't make it on 8 or $9 an hour. and i want to congratulate the city counsel of seattle, the people of seattle -- [ applause ] -- for doing the right thing and leading this country to what we've got to do nationally, 15 bucks an hour to every worker in america. [ applause ] this campaign is listening to senior citizens and disabled veterans. [ applause ] and they are telling me they
8:09 pm
cannot make it on 11 or $12,000 a year social security. republicans want to cut social security instead we have got bad news for them. we're not going to cut social security, we're going to raise social security benefits. [ applause ] this campaign is doing well because we are telling the american people the truth. [ applause ] and the truth is that today we have a campaign finance system which is corrupt, a system which is undermining american dem democra democracy. and that is why together we are
8:10 pm
going to overturn citizens united -- [ applause ] -- and why we are going to move to public funding of elections. [ applause ] now, this is serious business because when you have the koch brothers and a handful of billionaires spending hundreds of millions of dollars to elect candidates who represent the wealthy and the powerful, that is not democracy. that is oligarchy. we will not accept that. and this campaign is exposing the reality that today we have
8:11 pm
living in a rigged economy. millions of americans are working longer hours for lower wages yet almost all new incoming wealth goes to the top 1%. [ crowd boos] america must not be a country in which the top 1/10th of 1% owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%. we must not be an economy where the 20 wealthiest people own more weltalth than the bottom 150,000,000 americans. we're not going to be a country where the walton family of walmart owns more than the american people. together, we are going to create
8:12 pm
an economy that works for all of us, not just the 1%. [ applause ] but it is not just a corrupt campaign finance system. it is not just a rigged economy, it is a broken criminal justice system. i am tired. you are tired of seeing videos on television of unarmed americans being shot and killed by police. [ applause ] now, i'm a former mayor. i have wo worked with police departments inate my std all over this country. vast majority of police officers
8:13 pm
are honest, hard working, doing a very difficult job. but like any other public official, if a police officer breaks the law, that officer must be held accountable. in america we've got to demilitarize local police departments. [ applause ] we have got to make police departments reflect the cities of the communities they serve. we have got to rethink the war on drugs. [ applause ] over the last 30 years millions of americans have received police records for possession of
8:14 pm
marijuana. [ crowd boos] today, marijuana is listed as a schedule one drug in the federal controlled substance act. along side of heroin. [ crowd boos] and that is why i have introduced legislation to take marijuana out of the federal controlled substance act. [ applause ] as you all know, states makes the decision regarding legalization of marijuana but it should not be a federal crime. [ applause ] and when we talk about drugs, it's important to understand that we have a real crisis in this country, in my state, all
8:15 pm
over this countsry ry in additio opiates and we need to understand that drug abuse, alcohol abuse, substance abuse is a health issue, not a criminal issue. [ applause ] today the united states has more people in jail than any other country on earth. [ crowd boos] and not unrelated to that is that youth unemployment for our kids is sky high for white kids, 33%. for latino kids, 36%.
8:16 pm
african-american kids, 51%. [ crowd boos] together we are going to protect our kids by investing in education and jobs, not jails and incarceration. [ applause ] . this campaign is listening to women. [ applause ] and women are telling me they are sick and tired of working for 79 cents on the dollar compared to men. [ applause ] they want the whole dam dollar. [ applause ] and i know that every man here
8:17 pm
will stand with the women in the fight for pay equity. [ applause ] you know, we got republicans running all over the country talking about family values, how much they love families. everybody here must understand that when republicans talk about family values, what they are saying is no woman here tonight, in this state, in this country should have the right to control her own body, i disagree. [ applause ] they are saying that our gay brothers and sisters should not have the right to get married. i disagree. [ applause ]
8:18 pm
now, jane and i have been married for 27 years. we have four kids, seven grandchildren. [ applause ] and we believe in family but our views little bit different than republicans. when i talk about family values, i talk about ending the international disgrace of the united states being the only major country on earth that does not guarantee paid family and medical leave. [ applause ] this campaign, this campaign is listening to young people. [ applause ] and i am so excited that all over this country young people
8:19 pm
are standing up and fighting for their rights. [ applause ] young people are the future of our nation and they want a say in the future of our nation. [ applause ] young people tell me that their parents, teachers, everybody said to them go out and get the best education that you can. that it's important for you, our economy. you go to school and get all the education you can. that was the right advice. problem is many of these young people come out of school, 30, 50, $80,000 in debt. [ crowd boos]
8:20 pm
what this campaign is about is asking the american people to think outside of the box to think outicides side of the sta to understand that we can change in a fundamental way the status quo. it doesn't have to continue. plausz [ applause ] [ applause ] think about it for one second. why are we punishing millions of people for getting an education? why are we forcing them to pay off outrageous levels of student debt in some cases for decades? we should be rewarding people for getting an education, not punishing them. [ applause ]
8:21 pm
look, 50 years ago, 100 years ago, it was a great idea that we had public education systems throughout our country which guaranteed free public education to all from first grade to 12th grade. that was an enormous achievement. but in 2016 the economy and the world is different than it was 50 years ago. people today need more education. [ applause ] 50 years ago a high school degree was the equivalent of what a college degree is today. it enabled you to go out and get a decent job. the world has changed, the
8:22 pm
economy has changed and our conception of public education has got to change and that's why i believe that we've got to make public colleges and universities tuition free. [ applause ] now some people think -- [ crowd chanting "bernie"] -- some people think that this is a radical idea. it is not a radical idea. germany does it, scandinavia does it, countries all over the world invest in their yung people because they understand a well educated population is the
8:23 pm
future of their country. [ applause ] further more, wea've got to dea with this crisis of student debt, which means we've got to give those millions of people carrying student debt the opportunity to refinance those loans a thet lowest interest rates they can find. [ applause ] this campaign is listening to the latino community. there are, today, about 11 million people in this kwucount who are undocumented. and what the latino community is
8:24 pm
telling me is they are tired of living in the shadows. they are tired of being exploited. they are tired of living in fear. they want, i want comprehensive immigration reform and a path towards citizenship. [ applause ] and let me just say that if the congress does not do their job and pass comprehensive immigration reform, i will use the executive powers of the presidency to do everything i can. [ applause ] immigration reform is about bringing families together, not separating them. [ applause ]
8:25 pm
it is about ending the deportations we see today. [ applause ] this campaign is listening to our brothers and sisters in the african-american community. [ applause ] and they are asking me how it can be that this country has trillions of dollars to spend on a war in iraq that we never should have gotten into in the first place -- [ applause ] -- a war which i strongly opposed. [ applause ] -- but somehow we can spend trillions on that war but we
8:26 pm
don't have the funds available to rebuild crumbling innercities all over this country. [ applause ] well, we're going to change those priorities. no more tax breaks for billionaires and large corporations. [ applause ] we're going to invest indianaer citisi -- in inner cities, provide health care to all. [ applause ] i was in flint, michigan, three or four weeks ago and what i observed in flint and what i heard from people was literally something that not only broke my heart, it was hard for me to believe was occurring in the
8:27 pm
united states of america in the year 2016. in this country children are being poisoned with excessive led in the water in america in 2016. [ crowd boos] now, flint may be the worst example of a collapsing infrastructure but it is not the only example. all over this country hundreds of cities have inadequate water systems, inadequate waste water plants, bridges are deteriorating, roads are inadequate. our rail system fallen behind many other countries. levies and dams need enormous amounts of work. we can create -- we can create 11 million good paying jobs rebuilding our crumbling inf
8:28 pm
infrastructu infrastructure. [ applause ] this campaign is listening to our brothers and sisters in the native american community. [ applause ] now, i don't have to tell anyone here tonight who has read five minutes of american history that from day one when the first settlers came to this country before we were a nation, native americans were lied to, treated in absolutely disgraceful ways, treaties negotiated in good faith were broken. [ crowd boos]
8:29 pm
we owe the native american community far more than we can repay. [ applause ] some of the best parts of our culture come from the first americans, our understanding of the environment and the need to be part of nature, not to destroy nature comes from native americans. [ applause ] but today all over this country we find on in native american communities, extremely high suicide rates, horrific alcoholism, drug
8:30 pm
addiction, schools that are inadequate, health care that is inadequate. i pledge that if elected president, there will be a fundamental change in the relationship of the united states government to the native american communities. [ applause ] when we talk about the crisis of the nation, at the top of the list we understand that climate change is real. it is caused by human activity. it is already causing major
8:31 pm
problems in our country and around the world. we have a moral responsibility to leave this planet in a way that is healthy and habitable to future generations. [ applause ] this is not an american issue. this is a global issue. we have got to lead the way in working with russia, china, india, countries all over the world in standing up to the fossil fuel industry and -- [ applause ] and in telling them that their short-term profits are not more
8:32 pm
important than the future of this planet. [ applause ] we know exactly what has to be done. and that is to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy efficiency and sustainable energy. [ applause ] the future energy in america is not coal, it is not oil, it is not gas, it is solar, it is geo thermal, it is sustainable energy. [ applause ] and when we make that transformation, we clean up the environment, we combat climate change and we create millions of
8:33 pm
decent paying jobs. [ applause ] now, i have been roundly criticized for saying this, so let me say it again. [ applause ] i believe that health care is a right of all people, not a privilege. [ applause ] now, i'm on the committee that helped write the affordable care act and it has done a lot of good. we have done away with this
8:34 pm
obscenity called preexisting conditions. some 17 million people now have insurance that previously did not. [ applause ] we have done away with disscrimination against women in terms of the cost of their health care premiums. [ applause ] but, but today in imare cuwe remain the only major country that does not guarantee health care to all people as a right. [ crowd boos] the u.k. does it, france does it ir , holland, canada does it, scandinavia does it. and in my view, we have got to do the same thing here in america. [ applause ]
8:35 pm
today 29 million people still have no health insurance and many of you are underinsured with high deductibles and high co payments. that right? [ applause ] and we are being ripped off in an unkaungsinable way by the drug companies who are charging us the highest prices in the world for our medicine. [ crowd boos] and on top of all of that, we end up paying by far, more money for health care per capita than any other country on earth. in my view, we have got to have the curage to take on the insurance companies, take on the drug companies and pass a
8:36 pm
medicare for all single payer program. [ applause ] and when we do that, we will save the middle class families thousands of dollars a year on their health care costs. [ applause ] now, everybody here knows that real change never takes place from the top on down. real change historically always takes place from the bottom on up when millions of people come together -- [ applause ]
8:37 pm
-- when millions of people come together and say the status quo is unacceptable. hundred years ago, when workers were being ruthlessly exploited, when they were treated like animals, when they had no right on the job, when their wages were inadequate, they stood up. and they said we are human beings, we're going to form unions, we're going to bargain collectively. [ applause ] and when workers form unions, wages went up and every american worker benefitted. [ applause ] and i want to take this opportunity tonight to thank the international long shore and warehouse union for their support [ applause ]
8:38 pm
and to thank many other millions of union workers who are supporting this campaign. [ applause ] for hundreds of years, for hundreds of years african-americans and their allies worked together to say that in america segregation, bigotry, discrimination, was not what this country is supposed to be about. [ applause ] it didn't come from the top on down, it came from people who stood up, who fought, who went to jail, who were killed, who were beaten.. to say that in this country we will wipe out racism. plausz [ applause ]
8:39 pm
[ applause ] we forget this -- we forget this but 100 years ago a very short time from a historical perspective, 100 years ago women in america could not vote, could not go to the schools they wanted to, could not do the work and the jobs they wanted to do but women and their male allies said that in this country women will not be second class citizens. [ applause ] and change took place from the bottom on down. and then if we were here and i want you to think about this, we were here 10 years ago, somebody
8:40 pm
jumps up and says i think that gay marriage will be legal in the united states by the year 2015. legal in 50 states. very few people, very few people would have believed that would have been possible. but what happened is for decades the gay community and their straight allies said that people in this country have a right to love each other regardless of their gender. [ applause ] and against horrific bigotry and hatred, my state of vermont was
8:41 pm
one of the leaders in the fight for gay marriage and we saw the tension and the prejudices that took place. but because of the struggle of the gay community and their straight allies, we achieved gay marriage in 50 states in this country. from the bottom on up. [ applause ] and let me give you another example, another example that this city should be very proud of in terms of real change. this city. if we were here, if we were here seven years ago and somebody says bernie, the $7.20 minimum wage is a starvation wage, a disgrace. we've got to raise it to 15 bucks an hour. what most people around them would have said 15 bucks an hour? you're nuts.
8:42 pm
you're trying to double, more than double the minimum wage. it's too radical an idea. it can't happen. think smaller. but what happened is that all over this country people in the fast food industry, people at mcdonald's, wendy,'s they went out on strike and i was privileged to march with them in washington d.c. [ applause ] they went out on strike. they protested, they went to the community and they said to america we can't live on $7.25 an hour. and then right here in seattle, your city counsel said we're going to raise the minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour. [ applause ]
8:43 pm
and then suddenly los angeles, san francisco, 15 bucks an hour. [ applause ] oregon, new york state 15 bucks an hour. [ applause ] and millions and millions of american workers will be able to live with the shred of dignity because of that movement. [ applause ] and that is what change is about. it is what change has always been about. it is when people look around them and say the status quo is not acceptable. and other people will tell them you can't do it. you want to wipe out racism, you
8:44 pm
want to wipe out segregation, wipe out homophobia, you want to ends discrimination against workers you can't do it. don't think so big. i disagree. [ applause ] and right now we are at a pivotal moment in american history where millions of people are looking around this country and they're beginning to see that grotesque levels of income and wealth inequality unacceptable. trade policy which costs us millions of jobs not acceptable. millions of people leaving college deeply in debt, not
8:45 pm
acceptable. women working for 79 cents on the dollar. not acceptable. the united states having the highest rate of child hood poverty of any major country, not acceptable. [ applause ] a corrupt campaign finance system, not acceptable. a broken criminal justice system not acceptable. [ applause ] the fact that we're the only major country on earth not to have health care for all or paid family and medical leave, not c acceptable. [ applause ] and that is where we are today. millions of people are saying the status quo is not acceptable. we need a political revolution. [ applause ]
8:46 pm
i am the only candidate for president who will tell you a simple truth and that is that no president, not bernie sanders, or anybody else can address the major crisis facing this country unless 10s of millions of people stand up, fight back. [ applause ] and demand a government which represents all of us, not just the 1%. [ applause ] and if we stand together, black and white and latino, and asian-american and
8:47 pm
native-american, gay and straight, men and women, people born in this country, people who came to this country. if we stand together, there is nothing we cannot accomplish. [ applause ] our job is to think big, not small. [ applause ] our job is to have a vision of what this country can be. [ applause ] and it is a vision which says that all of our people can have
8:48 pm
a decent standard of living where we have a vibrant democracy where all of us determine the future, not just the few. [ applause ] now, donald trump is not going to become president of the united states. [ applause ] he is not going to become president because the american people understand that bringing people together is what makes us strong and it trumps dividing us up. the american people understand that togetherness, supporting each other, that when you are in trouble, we are there for you. when my family is in trouble,
8:49 pm
you are there for us. [ applause ] ; that togetherness always trumps selfishness. [ applause ] and most importantly, the american people understand that we are not going to elect a president who insults mexicans and latinos who insults muslims. who insults women. who insults veterans. who insults african-americans. and there was a candidate running like he was in a
8:50 pm
cafeteria food fight in the eighth grade. [ applause ] but most importantly, i think, the american people understand what every major religion on earth has taught us, whether it's christianity, judaism, islam, buddhism, whatever religion has always taught us that love trumps hatred. [ applause ] tomorrow morning, 12 hours from now, people of washington will have the opportunity to make a very profound statement and that
8:51 pm
is that washington will help lead this country forward into a political revolution. [ applause ] if there is a large voter turnout tomorrow, we will win. if there is a low voter turnout, we will lose. please come out tomorrow, bring your friends and relatives. let's make history tomorrow. thank you. [ applause ] ♪ >> bernie sanders wrapping up a long and boisterous speech on a west coast tour there at safeco field in seattle, washington. you see him dismounting from the
8:52 pm
makeshift stage on the baseball field and walkingen the field. this was a much celebrated rally. we now have a crowd estimate of 15,000 people in a very large baseball stadium that holds up to 54,000 at its max. 15 making this one of the larger, though not the largest bernie sanders rally. it's a cool 48 degrees in seattle now as darkness has descended on a stadium that was full of light in the earlier hours as people filed in. we heard a speech from bernie sanders. we're watching before hand. a stub speech that was pretty standard in its emphasis on economic inequality in drawing policy contrast with hillary clinton for the most part and he mentioned what he views as her refusal to turn over the speech
8:53 pm
scripts from her addresses to wall street. he did not mention the other big event today in the mind of bernie sanders' supporters, the bird that landed like a scene out of a movie and that immediately spawned a trenditrendin trending #birdie sanders. we're looking at shots of bernie greeting a few of the people with lucky seats. probably the most hard core fans that got in early and you can hear the crowd there still cheering for him. this was a classic bernie sanders rally in every way. >> i thought that he did more than he often does to really bring us through the entire sweep of social movements in this country. he really spent a lot of time on african-american civil rights struggles, women, lgbt, labor. he really placed his own run in the context of social movements that over time changed this country and over time made it a much better, stronger country.
8:54 pm
i haven't feel like i've seen him do it with quite the sweeping grander. >> and what seems impossible can be done and on economic issues, we hear broadly his talk on wall street. and he taylored one thing seattle has done which is a $15 minimum wage and things that congress says will have all thesed ad verse effects and you can't do it. >> well, let me do a couple shameless puns in terms of his speech. he covered all the bases, right. and he spoke at home plate. and seattle is home in terms of the minimum wage movement. that was ground zero at one time, so it was important to acknowledge that. and i think you eluded to it
8:55 pm
earlier to are o this is wherep. we know stein has offered overtures to bernie sanders, the green party nominee of president in case he doesn't get the nomination. but i think what all of that does and what he represented tonight is that this is a movement he knows is important. some have said he may not have realized how big it was going to get. the question is how to sustain it, how to keep the movement alive and i don't think it's going to be very easy to contain this movement after the nomination, whom ever that is. i think it has to continue. >> we have 20 seconds. do you think bernie sweeps tomorrow? >> i think he probably sweeps, yeah. she's put up a fight in washington, so the delegate margin i'm not sure of but i
8:56 pm
think he sweeps. >> that's a big day for him tomorrow. caucuses being a place he feels he organizes well and waur washington, a place for many reasons, we feel he will do well. and tane that is our show tonight. i will tell you tomorrow, there are those elections. i will be back in the chair anchoring at 5:00 p.m. eastern. you can get the preview, the during and the after. i'll be on 5:00 to 7:00 east coast time tomorrow. we'll have all the results and that does it for us but straight ahead is "the rachel maddow show".
8:57 pm
hundreds of crash simulations. thousands of hours of painstaking craftsmanship. and an infinite reserve of patience... create a vehicle that looks, drives and thinks like nothing else on the road. the all-w glc. the suv the worlds like nothihas been waiting for. starting at $38,950.
8:58 pm
8:59 pm
the possibilitof a flare was almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores.
9:00 pm
don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. we allegations about the candidate whose wife the front-runner just insulted. that candidate is denying the "national enquirer" story, but blech, that is apparently how the republicans are trying to decide on their presidential nominee this year. so that story's ahead. or at least as much of that as we can stomach is ahead this hour. we've also got news this hour that is totally outside the political realm but it's potentially a very big deal in national security news. that's ahead this hour. we've also got news this hour which has not been reported
