  1. Nothing wrong with taxes if they pay for stuff. In Canada , we don’t go bankrupt if you get sick. My friend has an autoimmune disease and his medial expenses would be 20k a month and he pays nothing. Guess what, he pays taxes and he doesn’t mind. No one cares unless it happens to you.

  2. you know.. people just need to accept that if you want to live with health care and get all the benefits, you will have to be taxed for it. yes she does avoid saying it will go up, but thats just because she knows people will be upset about it.. but theres no other way around it.. im from canada, and i dont know life without healthcare, and its great, ive been told the taxes are high but i never had any money issues about it

  3. It’s sad to see Stephen echoing the Republican framing of CNN when he asks about Medicare For All. What happened to this guy?

  4. She can’t answer the damn question with a basic ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on whether middle class will pay more taxes. The answer is YES!! Typical politician. 🙄

  5. How you answer the "will taxes go up to pay for Medicare for all"?

    You say "No, Because you stop paying the private taxes to insurance companies, no copays no deductables and no profit motivation, you stop paying the private taxes, overall you save money as a working class/middle class citizen"
    No sound bite for MSM

  6. ​ Debby McCormack How do you know this is the way it will happen? The Obama administration told the american public a complete lie, and Liz warren was part of this bill. She actually said (along with many other democrats) that you have to pass this bill, so we can see what's actually in it. SHE is the criminal is this case, not our President.

  7. Warren can't even give Colbert an honest and straight forward response to how is she's going to pay for medicare for all…and he's a liberal!

  8. 4:03 Warren explains her plan to cover "Medicare for all" is to tax people that make over 50 million a year 2 cents for every dollar they make over 50 million. According to the Social Security Administration, in 2017 only 205 people in the USA earned more than 50 million dollars. These 205 people made a combined 19.95 billion dollars in 2017. Estimates for what it would cost for everyone to have medicare is between 28-32 trillion dollars over 10 years, or roughly 3 trillion per year. To put it all into perspective, Warren could tax these people 100% of what they earn and would still fall 2.8 trillion dollars short PER YEAR to cover the cost of medicare for all.

  9. Most people know back in 2016 that Hillary was corrupt and not fit to be
    president, but Warren betrayed the candidate for the people (bernie)
    and endorsed Hillary. Warren is just another Hillary, maybe just
    slightly better, but not enough to be president.

  11. Warren has some skeletons in her past… lying about her heritage to get into Harvard for one. She also said she'd accept corporate PAC donations if she were to become the nominee. To me, it's Bernie all the way.

  12. Yikes. "I accept your point"? She thinks he's fighting her, and he's really trying to help her understand that she has to have better answers, and better answers exist.
    She is not even listening. It's a real disappointment — I hoped for more from her, and I think he did too, from the way he keeps scratching his head. #ColbertTells haha

  13. "What would convince you that the Iranians did this?" Where the f did this question come from? Do people have to be persuaded by any possible means that Iran did it? To blame everything on Iran is the ultimate goal you are pursuing? WTF man? How can you not see thousands and thousands of Yemeni women and children and fishermen getting bombed to their death by US-backed Saudi-Emirati forces? How can you just ignore the economic terrorism the US has been waging on Iran for years? What would convince you Colbert that hundreds of thousands of people are getting killed everyday in the Middle East with US-provided weapons and by US-backed dictators and butchers who would saw a journalist into tiny bits? Of course you do not want to see any of these because you are paid to be blind…

  14. I feel lile he needed to let her speak, he didn't so this to Bernie, could be due to him amd Bernie having more of a rapport, seeing as Bernie has been on the show 9 times!

  15. Of course he can bomb .. and congress never EVER gets to decide on military force … unless its not under the state emergency or national security provision…. which it ALWAYS is … and congress is bypassed literally every single time for the past 100 years+ this old lady is totally full of crap .. id take trump at his worst over her at her best, any time.

  16. Families go broke because of Government regulations that States enforce to surpress the indigenous people of America.

  17. Elizabeth Warren is a Conspiracy Theorist as a rich ruling class Socialist she wants all the sheeple to be dipped for lice fleeced and fed soylent green.

  18. It's funny all these healthcare crisis' that Warren is talking about , I've never experienced… sounds more to me like she's complaining about socialized healthcare or HMO care… but I imagine she'll eventually tell us how the middle class is going to pay for it.

  19. This is the first I'm really listening to her. She's like a female Jimmy Carter. She's wholesome and relatable, will probably live to be 100 doing charity work but defeat the Donald monster? Gonna need a lot of 1-ups.

  20. They cant Declare War "DUH", but they can send troops in for 90 days. IS it possible people would actually vote for her as President? It would take this country years to recover from her.

  21. In Portugal we have both private and public healthcare and it works very well!. You don’t need to eliminate private in order to have public! Have both! And of course the rich will continue to use private cause its faster service, but at least you leave the poor with one way to get treated. Just don’t take private away. Lots of people will loose their jobs too. You will loose a lot of votes!.. America is all about having freedom of choice.

  22. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis in my spine (and I’m only 40; it happens), spinal stenosis, severe spinal nerve damage from 6 impacted discs in my spinal cord, spinal bone spurs, degenerative disc disease, neuropathy, gastrointestinal problems from the Rheumatoid Arthritis, and I have continuing cognitive issues from having Lyme disease in the past. I have a good job with good insurance (that I pay $489 a month for), but because of my numerous health issues which prevented me from doing my job, I had to go on disability through my employee benefits which only gives me 75% of my original wage. AND I SPENT OVER $16,000 DOLLARS OF MY TAKE HOME PAY ON MEDICAL COSTS AND PRESCRIPTIONS LAST YEAR ALONE; JUST FOR ME ALONE! I have a young adult disabled daughter (who has schizophrenia) and a teen disabled step daughter (she’s Autistic) who live with us for their own safety, and both have special therapies and a lot of medicines that are outrageously expensive. But they must have them to survive! I cry so many nights when I’m trying to go to sleep from the sheer stress of worrying about how I’m going to take care of everyone. We live pay to pay, and many times I’ve had to choose between paying the electric bill, the mortgage, or the phone bill. And many time I’ve not gotten my own medicines because one of the girls needed a refill on theirs. And I always put my kids before myself and would go without in a second so they can have what they need. Sometimes it’s just impossibly hard and we just scrape by. Despite both my husband and I being college educated (we both have Master’s Degrees) people with decent jobs and having worked hard all our lives! But Healthcare is eating my family and I alive. We’re drowning and need a life preserver. I hope 2020 brings it. This is the perspective my vote will be coming from.

  23. Hahaha! the most pathetic trash i've seen yet today! Thanks Stephen for your memes. Trash anti American filth

  24. The govt does well and cheaper. Medicare is going broke the VA isn't doing a good job and they spent your social security money.

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

  26. "No President gets to declare war on their own"

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

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

  28. Hawi Jack: let me answer that for you. These are the tax rates in the Netherlands in 2019:

    Taxable income Percentage

    Up to 20,384 euro 36.65%

    From 20,385 till 68,507 euro 38.10%

    Above € 68,508 euro 51.75%

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

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

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

  31. EW would Wag the Dog first chance she got. She would be in for a rude awakening after her 1st meeting with the JCS. The next election is a formality of Trump's re-election unless gas at the pump and unemployment rise significantly.

  32. Actually the Constitution does not say the President must ask Congress to use military force, the War Powers Act puts weasel words on that. The Constitution is simpler, it says only Congress has the power to declare war. Which IIRC was last done for WW2, not Korea, not Vietnam, not any middle eastern incursion….weasel words.

  33. Cornholebert Spokesman for the yeast infected minds of the third bathroom party. Wipes with leaves, is not going anywhere.

  34. She is a lying toad ! And I am not even a braindead Yanks like most of her stupid naive supporters !

    She is not Native American.

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

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

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

  35. If Warren keeps lying about her past, including losing her teaching position due to pregnancy, her phony native American heritage, etc., she'll be an even bigger gift to the Republicans.  She will soon rival crooked Hillary for dishonesty…

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

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

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

  39. A President can not declare war on their own citizens – Opps I guess she forgot about Obama approving drone strikes against American citizens

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

  41. Stephen, quit being a tool. U know what the Hell she is talking about when it comes to healthcare. How many times do progressives have to explain common sense!

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

  43. The fact that these two people have the audiences that they do should be terrifying to anyone that cares about the United States of America!

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

  45. UGH, Stephen tried to help her, gave her a winning answer on Medicare for All and she refused to use it. She's bought.

  46. As a Swiss citizen, I have been most thrilled by the solutions of Andrew Yang. His analysis and ideas initiate the ground for a new humanistic capitalism.

  47. the military communist industrial complex shell's out 1.25 million dollars an hour on exclusive benefits for a protected class of people. … blame the corporations = blame the workers of the nation.

  48. Cool idea but it will never happen here, too expensive and we middle class folks cant afford more taxes which by the way will most certainly go up

  49. maslow hierarchy of needs
    raise min wage eliminate low class create a sustainable middle class and stop talking about it…

  50. As much as I like Bernie, Warren is by far the more energetic and physically capable candidate. Bernie has been important but he literally just had a heartattack. Warren's policies match up pretty squarely against Bernie's anyway. Warren has been very public for a long time, Bernie only does interviews at election time, thats why I like her.

  51. It's moronic to compare nations — each is unique and needs its own plan and solutions.
    Dummies don't understand that.
    Nice try 'netherlands'

  52. feckless and discusting this is why i cannot watch public tv and especially morons like stephen colbert, just pathetic is answers and leading questions without any real questions asked. he was just pandering a panderer. why not ask elizabeth has she ever been corrupt is she corrupt. when did she first start fighting for basic human rights? feckless every leading question. pathetic and disgusting!

  53. why not ask elizabeth warren what is her time line and ask if its several decades to present is that a form of her own corruption.

  54. Her credibility on her claims to native heritage used to advance her career to be false, claims of gender discrimination by claiming that she lost her job due to pregnancy was proven to be false. Her polices have proven to be flawed. So why is she so appealing ?

  56. My mom, a nurse, always said insurance companies were practicing medicine without a license, because they hadn’t examined the patient & didn’t have a medical license authorizing them to diagnose.
