tv Question Time CSPAN April 18, 2016 12:35am-1:01am EDT
who work weekends already. what we are to move toward is an nhs where the individual has 70ess to their family doctor days a week. and where hospitals work on the seven-day basis because that will save lives. catherine west: the governors play a key role in local schools supporting the children's education and performance of an important civic duty. is the prime minister aware of the sadness and anger that it resulted from the force academy's announcement that the duty for each school to have governors will be removed. will the prime minister urgently review this attack on parents? cameron: i actually delighted the honorable lady asked this question. we support. governors. governors have a great role to play. but that doesn't solve the
problem about how to engage with parents. there is something in the labor motion today that is actually inaccurate and should be withdrawn. labor motion says that the white paper proposes the removal of parent governors from schools governing bodies. it does no such thing. as well is not getting his tax return on in time he is bringing forward motions in this house that are simply wrong.
sen. sanders: in case you haven't noticed, there are a lot of people here this afternoon. thank you for coming out. i want to thank tanya stephens, eric sermon, rick leber. justin long, sally kellen, congresswoman gabbard, some assemblyman williams, and one of the great actors in america, danny devito.
[cheers and applause] welcome to the political revolution. you know, when i was a kid growing up in flat rush -- -- flatbush -- [cheers and applause] our parents would take us to prospect park. they still have the fields in the elephants? all right. but i was never hears speaking to 20,000 people. so, thank you all very much for being here. [cheers and applause] this is a campaign that's on the
move. [cheers and applause] this is a campaign that one year ago was considered a fringe candidacy. 70 points behind secretary clinton. well, they don't consider us fringe anymore. [cheers and applause] this is a campaign that has one eight out of the last nine caucuses and primaries. [cheers and applause] and with your help on tuesday, we are going to win right here in new york state. [cheers and applause] this is a campaign that will defeat donald trump.
mr. trump will not become president of the united states. [cheers and applause] this is a campaign that is bringing millions of people into the political process. working people and young people who are sick and tired of establishment politics and establishment economics. they want, we want a government which represents all of us, not just the 1%. [cheers and applause] this is a movement of people who are prepared to think big, not
small. people who want to elect not just the new president, but to transform america. [applause] this is a movement where people understand why it is that we are not addressing the real issues facing our country. and that is that we have a corrupt campaign finance system. there is a simple truth which everybody understands, whether you are progressive or conservative. that is that you cannot have a super pac raise many millions of dollars from wall street or special interests and then tell
the american people with a straight face that you are going to stand up to the big money interests. not true. let me say a few words about some of the differences between secretary clinton and myself. when we began this campaign we had to make an important decision. that decision was -- should we do like every other campaign, democrat and republican, and establish a super pac? [crowd says no] we said no. [cheers and applause] we do not represent the interests of wall street, the billionaire class, or corporate america. we do not want their money.
we're going to do it a different way. [cheers and applause] what we said was so revolutionary. what we said to the american people, the working-class, the families, if you want candidate that will stay with you, -- stand with you, stand with us. in the last year we have received 7 million individual campaign contributions. [applause] that is more campaign contributions that any candidate in the history of the united states of america. [cheers and applause]
anybody here know what the average contribution is? [cheers and applause] that's right, $27. that is what the political revolution is about. that is how we are going to win this thing without being dependent on wall street or the big-money interests. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton has chosen to raise the money of different way. she has not just one, but a number of super pac's.
last reported, they listed 25 million from special interest. 15 million from wall street alone. but it is not just super pac's receiving -- giving her substantial sums of money. it is the fact that today she has reported that she has given speeches before wall street for $225,000 per speech. now, if you give a speech for $225,000, must be a pretty dam good speech. [cheers and applause] must be a brilliant and insightful speech analyzing all of the worlds problems.
must be a speech written in shakespearean prose. that is why i believe that secretary clinton should share that speech with all of us. [cheers and applause] it is not just how we raise our money. policy issue of our time in which we disagree. in 2002, secretary clinton was in the senate and i was in the house. we heard the same evidence from george bush and dick cheney about whether or not we should go to war in iraq.
i listened very, very carefully. i didn't believe what they were saying. i voted against that war. [cheers and applause] then senator clinton heard the same evidence cited. she voted for that disastrous war. [crowd boos] the worst foreign-policy blunder in the modern history of america. but it was not just, as congress were often -- congresswoman gabbard often reminds us, she was active in overthrowing the government of libya without thinking about what happens the day after. [crowd boos] a no-fly zone in syria, which in
my view will get us sucked into a never-ending war in that area. something that i vigorously vigorously oppose. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton and i disagree vigorously on trade policy. she has supported virtually every disastrous trade agreement, from nafta to permanent normal trade relations, to china. agreements that have cost us millions of decent paying jobs. if corporations shut down here and throw american workers out on the street and moved to china and other low-wage countries. [crowd boos] i not only oppose these trade
agreements, i lead the opposition to all of them. [cheers and applause] and if elected president, we are going to transform our trade policy. corporate america will start investing in this country, not just in china. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton and i disagree on minimum wage policy. the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour is a starvation wage. [cheers and applause] she believes we should raise the minimum wage to $12 per hour. not bad, but not good enough. we need to raise it to 15 box
15 bucks an hour. [cheers and applause] i am proud of the fast food workers who went out on strike. who had the guts -- and i've been on the picket line with them -- [cheers and applause] who had the guts to tell you american people that if you are worth 40 hours per week, you should not be living in poverty. thank you, fast food workers. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton and i disagree on a major, major environmental issue. one of the great environmental crises of our time is the need to preserve clean water. we are not going to do that with
fracking. we have got to get rid of fracking. [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "bernie"] the people of our country and the people of this world need to know that there will be clean drinking water for them and their kids in the years to come. we have got to send up -- stand up to the fossil fuel industry and tell them that fracking is eliminated across this country. [cheers and applause] related, i'm a member of the u.s. senate committee on the environment.
anyone who comes before you and tells you that climate change is not real, is not caused by human a committee, is not already causing massive problems in our country and around the world, that person is lying to you. [cheers and applause] we have got to understand that leaving this planet healthy and habitable for our children and grandchildren is a moral issue. [cheers and applause] we have got to tell the fossil fuel industry that their short-term profits are not more important than the future of this planet.
we have got to listen to the scientific community that tells us that we have got to be bold, got to be progressive now in transforming our energy system. i have introduced the most comprehensive climate change legislation in the history of the united states senate. [cheers and applause] that legislation includes a tax on carbon. [cheers and applause] secretary clinton does not support a tax on carbon. i am right. she is wrong on this issue. [cheers and applause]
everybody here knows that it is a result of the greed and the recklessness and the illegal behavior of wall street. this country was plunged into the worst economic downturn since the 1930's. millions of people lost their homes, their jobs, their life savings. the united states congress, against my vote, voted to bail out wall street. [crowd boos] and they bailed out wall street because the major banks were considered too big to fail.
