  1. Lawrence is not completely right. Of course, the president signs the legislation that is passed in the house and in the senate. But he also has an influence in the beginning, when the process starts, when he can set a path to which kind of legislation he wants to sign and which kind he would oppose. He also can influence the majority leaders to act in a certain way and he can convince the members of the house and the senate by his leadership and the means of communication he has. So he can not force it but he can encourage it in many ways. The candidates also can endorse the president on different issues prior to running to get help for the campaign. It then might get hard to oppose it after the election.

  2. MSNBC & CNN almost immediately started their spin campaign to favor Forrest Biden Gump. RUN Biden RUN, “because stupid is as stupid does." you go corporate media. Yes, everyone loves his or her Kaiser and Sharp health insurance premiums, I hated having to go on Medicare and give up my $250 a month premiums with up to $50 co-pays. Please- I have a right to go bankrupt from medical bills if I want to. This topic is going to cause me to have to go buy more $300 dollar heartburn medication, durn-it.

  3. THING's the don OF CON DOSE WITH HIS DAY WATCH T.V PLAY GOLF PLAY WITH TWITTER TRY AND THINK OF WAY's TO SUCKER PUNCH THE LEFT! ANYTHING THAT HURT's THE POOR AND NEEDY WORK's THE BEST!!!

  4. What Lawrence forgets to take into consideration is the public pressure that a president can bring for policy proposals that they advocate for. To use the bully pulpit of the office to press politicians to back popular policy proposals is how you get massive overhauling legislation.

  5. If only the Bully Puplit existed. No, you're right, the president has no power whatsoever. That's why Trump has had zero influence over what the GOP has passed this past year. Oh right…this is just shilling for Biden because thats what MSNBC does.

  6. Yea, but the presidency also allows you to utilize the bully pulpit to move Congress towards specific ends. We just need a president who's progressive enough and gutsy enough to use it.

  7. No. Not "whatever Democrats manage to pass". That's not how we got the Civil Rights Act, that's not how we got Medicare. Johnson got what he wanted.
    The president LEADS.
    The status quo of a warm body with a pen in the White House should end.
    You just argued for it to continue.
    Shame in you Lawrence. You know better.

  8. V.P. Biden knows what can be done. He stated this. Made it clear to two other candidates directly and to the audience incorrectly.

  9. I care nothing about what America represents, be it the corruption and greed or the support of homosexuality and drugs……..

    From the very foundation of America, the Constitution, I accept 666, rather than to ever claim to be a part of this Storyline or Narration. These people are all marked 666, which the very values of the American Gov and People…….

    America was founded for White trash…. Now, they all believe they are black….. That Culturally or Ethically, they want to make every living soul here, Black…. Both in their values towards society and Gov and their values towards family and sobriety……… Sorry, I am not interested in being black or seeing America be a Land, where blacks dwell…….. If these white people want to promote black culture and black values, then they need to be sent back to Africa, with the blacks……

    If they are not wiling to leave, then they will be forced to leave, but they are not welcome, nor or their values!

  10. Lawrence is a MORON! why doesn't he tell us that our congress is RUN by elite $$$$$. It's a BROKEN SYSTEM!!! The only person acknowledging this is Bernie Sanders. We have a corrupt system!!!

  11. Yes the surly waiter world hater, I must admit I care not so much, if at all, for this compulsively fastidious household flea interjecting himself excessively and rudely overreaching. The merit's of polite society yes and the demanding female difficulty. Back off before I plant your surly face in the de jour disgrace

  12. That you're hope taking guns away from law abiding citizen to make it safer for criminals oh baby you're one sick dude Lawrence

  13. Note how Kamala tries to shift the topic from discussions about each candidate's ideas on health care to a discussion of Trump's policies. Nice going, Kamala, but we aren't buying it. The primaries are so that those who care can listen to each candidate's ideas on where and how to lead the country. Once we get a fair idea of what each of you think, then we can make informed decisions for our candidate for the general elections. You will not be my choice for it is obvious that you are bought-and-paid-for by Corporate America, and that is the real enemy of the people. Trump will be gone in due time, no matter what else takes place…corporate influence, on the other hand, will require a concerted effort by a lot of people to get rid of and you aren't not one to take that challenge on.

  14. Sorry Dems he is going to be reelected and continue the prosperity he
    began. Open borders, high taxes, bad trade deals, killing babies, and
    gun confiscation will have to wait 5 more years at least

  15. Come on. The candidates are not only campaigning to replace Trump by some Dem. What they say is also a campaign for replacing GOPs by Dems in Congress and state legislatures. It would be pointless to defeat Trump only to see the Senate continue in control of the Republican.
    So the proposals of AR confiscation, universal health care, progressive tax etc. are not "what I will do when President", but "what Congress must do when the Dems take it back".

  16. And the winner of this debate our great President Donald Trump. The clown car better known as the democratic can't didates have absolutely Zero chance

  17. I can't wait to see Biden debate Trump and Biden coughs a few times while Trump is speaking. lol…that will cause Trump to completely melt-down before the eyes of the nation. He could even run off the stage!

  18. Well you're right this is a Democrat wish list we're all advised now what they really think but we're still waiting for them to do something we sent them to Washington to do they've done absolutely

  19. Oh how sad it is to see this network lying their azzes off to our public….but even more saddening is seeing so many people still believe your lies. Just remember, the Lord sees the heart, and you can only escape all this evil world stands for through Jesus Christ. He's coming back soon and time is VERY short.

  20. You would think small businesses and even and even big corporations would like Medicare for all as it would save them money as they wouldn’t have to pay for their employees healthcare.

  21. Every effort should be on removing Trump from office. I’m sick and tired of these bickering. Democrats, both moderates and liberals should unite to ensure that Trump is not re-elected.

  22. Obiden is a Deep State, Swamp dream just like Mueller was, someone so freaking dementia-ed that the wolfs will rule the hen house!

  23. Beto – the moment you tell right wing gun nuts that you're taking their guns, they will work very very hard to ruin you.

  24. Biden always says he wants to get rid of Trump but so far as I can recall he has not criticized any of Trump's disastrous policies, most of all on trade and on immigration, and for sure he has never criticized Trump's racist rhetoric. How is he going to handle Trump in debate?

  25. I BET YOU DUMMIES AT MSNBC CRY YOURSELVES TO SLEEP , HAVING TO BE THE PEP CLUB FOR THE DEMOCRAT "ALL CLOWNS CIRCUS !" WHAT A JOKE !! 🤡 'S 4 U !!

  26. Not sure about that for every case! Republicans negotiated legislation with the democrats and trump said he wouldn't sign it so they didn't pass it, Several times. He didn;t veto it, just told them not to pass it! If the boss says to do a thing, you do it or suffer the consequences!

  27. It's a sad day that the only way to get things done is to keep a toll on the body count when it reaches 50,000 dead from 1 style of killing machine the AR MAYBE !

  28. LAWRENCE I FIND IT DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO NOT AGREE WITH ADLER THAT IT IS THE PEOPLE WHO PUT TRUMP IN TO DECIDE IF HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED! PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT PART OF THE ABOVE YOU DISAGREE WITH!

    Gun Control Preceded the Tyranny in Venezuela
    Some Venezuelans have expressed regret over the gun control policies the government has implemented since 2012. Naturally, this regret is warranted.

  31. mayor pete is for a new ERA amendment. it would make men and women's bathrooms illegal, men and women's sport teams illegal and men and women's prisons illegal. when asked about the danger of doing that to prisons, mayor pete just laughed.

  32. Poor Mrs/Miss/Ms Harris! Must be horrible to live in a country where there is one single man frustrating each of your favourite socialist fantasies!!!! I think her headache will get better in another sort of country.

  33. That debate was a long stretch of one terrible idea after another. They have one thing. They can convince many to hate and mistrust Trump. That's their one thing.

  34. Re the Healthcare comment: while there was SOME Congressional support for SOME Civil Rights legislation in 1964, it NEEDED LBJ's Vision, commitment and "Bully Pulpit" to bring it about.
    Similarly with What kind of Health Care reform – and the sense I get is that Joe Biden, left to himself, would do little or nothing on Healthcare!!!

  35. Where do they find these jokers who think they can run the country. Just because you live  in America doesn't guarantee health care, because the middle income pays for it with taxes.
