I wanted to ask you about something we saw on the campaign trail in the past week i was covering the no malarkey tour with former vice president biden, and you may have heard at one point. He said pete buddha judge stole my health care plan. Now, as the author of medicare x plan in the senate, i wonder if you respond to that, i've been robbed blind by everybody. I mean if, if me repeat, stolen for ...
joe biden, joe stolen from me, because as bernie says over and over again he's the guy who wrote the damn bill on medicare for all. Well, i'm the guy that wrote the damn bill on the public option and bythe way. This is what i've been for for 10 years. You know mayor pete was for medicare for all for 18 months before it was for the public option, i'm not sure where joe biden was, but we didn't get it done and - and i didn't need to take a poll or get ready to run for president to Know what i believed about it: health care or the other issues that were confronting in this race. I think that's! That'S, because i'm the only candidate in the race he's actually won two national elections in a swing state. Nobody else has done that and when you've done that, you learn to say the same thing in a primarythat, you say in a general election and and yet you suck it up and tell people what you think and and in the end i think people respect you For it, even if they disagree with your particular position on any given issue, hey nbc news viewers, thanks for checking out our youtube channel, subscribe by clicking on that button down here and click on any of the videos over here to watch.
