  • Elizabeth Warren on paying for expensive program: 'C'mon, there's always money...'

    Elizabeth Warren has forgotten, if she ever knew, Margaret Thatcher's immortal dictum: "The problem with socialism is that sooner or later, you run out of other people's money." In what ought to be a career-ending slip, facing a friendly questioner, Lily Eskelsen García, president of the National Education Association, her belief in a fantasy world where money can be endlessly spent came out. Watch her brush off concern over funding an expensive education program with the words, "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there."

    Amid declining poll numbers, Elizabeth Warren seems to be attempting to tune up a few of her standard answers to questions about her budget-busting campaign promises. While it didn’t garner much attention at the time, Warren gave an interview to the National Education Association last month. During that meeting she was asked whether or not she supported some expensive new education programs and, if so, how she planned to pay for them.After all the damage she’s taken from her Medicare for All proposal and a (likely unconstitutional) wealth tax, Warren is clearly tired of being asked how she plans...

    The strongest indicator yet that Hillary’s mulling a 2020 run? She appeared Wednesday, for the first time ever, on Howard Stern. There was hardly a pretense she was there to promote the book she co-wrote with daughter Chelsea, long ago a bestseller. As those who listen to the show know, Stern publicly begged Hillary to appear during the 2016 campaign. After Donald Trump won, Stern said one guest shot could have moved the needle her way. “If she had come on the show …,” Stern mused in May. “The way I helped Donald was I let him come on and...

    WASHINGTON (WNDU) - VoteVets, the largest progressive group of veterans in America, is endorsing South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg for president. It is the first presidential endorsement for the group, which represents more than 700,000 veterans, military families and civilian supporters. "We need a candidate who will win," VoteVets Chairman Jon Soltz says in a release. "Bar none, Pete gives us the best shot at doing just that. It is time to rally around him, and stop the walking, talking national security threat that is Donald Trump." Buttigieg is a veteran himself. He took a leave of absence as mayor...

    South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, blasted a Black Lives Matter activist who started a fight at his campaign event organized by black community leaders. "It's unfortunate, and it shows kind of where politics is come to, especially for somebody to interrupt an African American woman who is speaking about her truth and her experience," the 2020 Democratic presidential contender told MSNBC in a Thursday interview. The 37-year-old was not present at the event. "But, this is the climate we are in," he added about the brawl. On Wednesday, the Buttigieg campaign held an event for black leaders, which was...

    A white Black Lives Matter activist appeared to cause a ruckus at an event being held by black leaders in support for South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Black Lives Matter supporters had gathered to protest the event just as a man stole the microphone from councilwoman Sharon McBride. 'Who chose these people as the black leaders?' the man shouted on the microphone. 'Who organized this?' The questions immediately drew cries and jeers from the gathered audience and at one point in the video, a black women held up her cane and threatened to attack he man.

    On the campaign trail for the Democratic presidential nomination, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg tries to portray himself as a moderate politician. By running ads against implementing a single-payer health system, Buttigieg would have voters believe he rejects the radical leftism of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. Don’t you believe it. Buttigieg recently released an aging and retirement plan that proposed massive amounts of new entitlement spending, including a program that the Obama administration couldn’t implement in a fiscally sound manner, with very little in the way of specifics to pay for all his ideas. It’s but the latest example of...

    ...A democratic socialist—Bernie Sanders—is among the top contenders to be the next Democratic nominee for U.S. President. His rival and fellow Senator, Elizabeth Warren, is also among the top tier of candidates, declaring herself a capitalist who wishes to transform American capitalism as we know it, with a wealth tax, a Green New Deal and the elimination of private health insurance. A more centrist candidate, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., illustrated the shifting winds when he recently declared that “neo-liberalism is the political–economic consensus that has governed the last 40 years of policy in the U.S. and U.K....

    Iowa pro-life advocates won a legal victory this fall when a federal judge ruled in favor of their right to free speech outside of abortion facilities in the state. Anthony Miano and Nicholas Rolland, both of Davenport, are pro-life advocates who stand outside Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities in Iowa to be a voice for unborn babies. They stand on the public sidewalks, read aloud from the Bible, preach and speak to people walking in and out of the abortion facilities. In 2018, they challenged a state law that prohibits “loud and raucous noise in the vicinity of any...

    Pro-abortion Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg blasted pro-life laws during a campaign swing in Alabama this week. He attacked the pro-life legislators behind a law the state legislature approved this year that would protect women and unborn children from abortion. In May, Gov. Kay Ivey signed a bill that bans abortion in Alabama. But, during a roundtable discussion with abortion activists and Democrat voters, Buttigieg went after the pro-life lawmakers behind the bill, falsely claiming they “ignore science” and just want to “punish women.” Here’s more: Buttigieg criticized the law, saying the legislature was “ignoring science, criminalizing abortion, and punishing...

    South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is being slammed — and also defended — after a 2017 Instagram post of him at a Holocaust memorial in Berlin, with the caption “This guy,” resurfaced Sunday on Twitter. The Democratic presidential candidate’s husband, Chasten Buttigieg, posted the photo of Buttigieg at what appeared to be the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, in Germany’s capital. Users on Twitter called the photo and caption “tone-deaf,” “inappropriate, “tasteless” and “disrespectful.” […] Buttigieg’s campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. …

    On Tuesday evening, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang celebrated the opening of his office in Manchester, New Hampshire, by squirting whipped cream into supporters’ mouths. The “uncomfortable” interaction was captured on video by ABC News reporter Christopher Donato. As shown in the video below, Mr. Yang squirts the cream into one kneeling young man’s mouth and then celebrates by shaking the bottle and joking, “That’s a full-service presidential candidate!” And he wasn’t done there, to the obvious displeasure of who appears to be the candidate’s campaign manager Zach Graumann. The businessman then squirts more cream into another kneeling male supporter’s...

    FULL TITLE: Military women are expected to be ‘good soldiers’ and have abortions. Pete Buttigieg’s plan would make it worse for them. On November 11, presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg revealed his plan to help veterans, including by eliminating what he calls “barriers to women’s success in the armed forces.” According to his campaign, the plan states that as president, Buttigieg would “ensure women’s health needs, including reproductive care, are accessible while they serve.” Abortion advocates have long been pushing for easier access to abortion for women in the military, claiming that women facing unplanned pregnancies need access to abortion in...

    The most persistent narrative of the 2020 race for the Democratic nomination is that it amounts to a battle between leftists (Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren) and centrists (Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and now Michael Bloomberg) over who is best suited to take on and take down President Trump. But what if there are no true centrists in the 2020 race at all? Oh sure, there are plenty of candidates who portray themselves as centrists — and other candidates, like Sanders and Warren, who delight in skewering these less left-leaning options for ideological heresy. But do the three Bs — Biden,...

The ad opens with a clip from an Iowa speech Buttigieg gave Nov. 1: “In our White House, you won’t have to shake your head and ask yourself: What ever happened to ‘I was hungry and you fed me; I was a stranger and you welcomed me’,” a reference to Matthew 25:35. The ad will be released on Tuesday in South...

Wendall Potter, who spent 20 years in the health insurance industry, told Hill.TV that both policy ideas would create much needed structural changes to the health care system.

    Kamala Harris was one of more than 20 Democrats hoping to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. She has a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record and voted against a bill to protect newborns from infanticide. And she told voters she would force Americans to fund abortions up to birth. But the California senator decided to drop after today after lackluster results, a low polling and fundraising standing, and the inability to make it to prime time debates. Here’s more: Hours before Harris announced she was exiting the Democratic primary, her campaign canceled a New York City fundraiser that was expected to...
