Tech/Automation is the issue that is underdiscussed. Andrew Yang is the only one who is seriously speaking about this with the priority it deserves.

what I want to know is why it looked so obvious that when Kamala spoke everyone shut up and let her but every other candidate tried the same and they all just kept talling over them. many different times it was like they were all coached to let Kamala be heard.

Robert McCarthy Am not sure what you do mean by "Is this only 5 minutes". This episode is 37:30 long. If you can only hear about 5 minutes, then please try to clear the app cache and try again. If this doesn't solve your problem, feel free to contact us again.

Medicare for all is the only option. profit health care has failed the country. I have had private healthcare my whole life and I have had better than most, it falls short in many key ways. Healthcare today for most people is tied to their employment so as soon as I change jobs I can loose my doctors. Medicare for all covers all Americans and makes healthcare a human right. People want comprehensive coverage. Private for profit healthcare is not for people it’s for profit. With the Medicare for all people can take additional insurance if they want but few will need since healthcare will work for people not for profits.

Is this guy for real? I don't even know where to begin... the republicans held power for eight years resulting in the greatest financial crisis in 70 years (Clinton also to blame). Also, they accused moderate Obama as a kenyan socialist for eight years.. and now they start this again on the democratic candidates. The hypocrisy is mindbending. And of course the scaremonging about the green new deal, which isn't even a binding bill. In what twisted world is this person living. wtf, and he is forgetting the morally bankrupt presidency of 45..

Nate Silver's establishment dem bias shows strong in this episode, TYT could have done a better job but he misreps what the young Turks said, you can hear the loathing in his voice. TYTs response here: https://youtu.be/9bppXajlK20

Maybe Hillary lost because she was UNLIKABLE. So tired of the sexist tropes. Put a strong populist leftist on the platform and the broad coalition will come.

Very disappointed that the bulk of this conversation was about the political calculations involved in making DC a state and less about the gross injustice of taxing the residents of DC while denying them a vote! This is the very reason we declared independence and went to was with Britain. What is wrong with these people?!

Andrew Dias Bud, are you okay? You do know that they vote, yes? That they have electoral college representatives? They literally start the episode by stating that their representatives vote on some floor issues and vote in committee.

You talked about how it's odd that republican voters like outsiders considering it's the party in control most of the time, but did you guys consider that the GOP and it's base always acts like it's the victim? They might have power but they don't believe they do. The GOP feels like Christianity is under attack even though the vast majority of the country is Christian. They play the victim of the establishment, it doesn't matter that they're the establishment. It's about feels over reals.

SC and its Justices' Clerks need to consider all Moon's points made here and in supporting documents, and not only the lawyers' interpretations: unassisted opinions will be worthless.
