[applause] were threeernible] aldermen. [applause] ms. klobuchar: thank you. ward seven.
ward seven. [applause] ms. klobuchar: i love how everyone is always selected here. my favorite was in -- i did a townhall and the moderator was there, he introduced himself and he said he had the town moderator. i made a joke, i said i suppose you were elected too? he said, i am. [laughter] ms. klobuchar: we were on the coast just now, quite a day to be there. talking about climate change at the science center. it is an amazing thing. kind of a climate seen these next two days going into -- we're going to have a 10mate townhall with the candidates who qualified. i am one of them i tell people it is like i have made the playoffs. it is a big deal. a lot of you had a role in that. excited because as
the field narrows, it is going to be a better chance to make my case. you know that i announced in the middle of a snowstorm because i knew that would be popular in new hampshire. they said come on, snow. i wanted to show i had the grits not to go inside. there in part because i wanted to make the case that we need to cross the river. i believe that more than i did then. as the president seems to escalate every single week with his negative attacks, and his chaotic rhetoric. i was on this morning -- i did face the nation and fox news sunday. on both of them, i was able to talk about his trade policy, and the economics of what is going on. month, onn of this
august 1, he announced tariffs of $300 billion. later, heweeks reversed themselves -- himself. on august 20, he announced he was going to reduce taxes because of a potential recession. the next day, he changed his mind. he did that on top of the fact that he is now given us trillions of dollars in debt and taken us to a place where we continue on this course. -- if we continue on this course we will be in the worst that we have had since right after world war ii. he is treating this country like one of his bankrupt casinos. we have to talk about that as well as the need to go back to the negotiating table with china as well as the target investment. things like infrastructure. crying out here with the
potential for commuter rail to this area. congested areat in the country that does not have commuter rail going to it. that is just an example of some of the green infrastructure and things that we should be doing. allowing for the independent of the federal reserve. was thember of years i democratic share of the joint economic committee with the house. i got to know the federal reserve chairs including -- got to have a long lunch with her once. we had many hearings devoted to this. i'm a big believer of the independence of the federal when my family and i came here for two days off and easter, we went up to the north country and yes we took the
, bretton woods tour, ok? i would like to point that out, to add that to my street credit when it comes to financial policy. but in any case, i really am concerned about the chaos. one of the things that i remembered this morning as i was talking about it, we have a lot of tribes in minnesota, and there is an old saying that i actually used at the national prayer breakfast when i was giving the prayer once at that big event, and that is this -- "great leaders make decisions not just for this generation, but for seven generations from now." [applause] sen. klobuchar: we have in place a president that is not even able to keep a decision seven minutes from now, much less seven generations from now. that especially comes into play not just with the long-term view of the chinese and what you have to be able to do to be able to compete with them on the world stage, when you are watching every single thing he does and they have this long view, which
we also have to have this long, strategic view. one of the things we have on our side is our democracy, our incredible innovation, we have the fact that we bring people in from all over the world, something he keeps trying to turn his back on -- all of these things have given us economic strength in our country. one of the things they asked this morning about economics is, well , hey, the economy is still hanging in there. i said yeah. that is because -- this was on fox -- that is because of our workers and our businesses, including many here in this great eight, -- in this great state who helped get us out of this downturn, right? it was tough. they were resilient. they got us out of the downturn, and then when you are a leader and you come in as resident, you do not just gloat about the work of others and like, stop the whining every day. it is just blaming someone else.
the federal reserve chair, the city of baltimore, jewish democratic voters, and then the ultimate, the entire country of denmark. who can piss off denmark? stop the whining. the gloating, then things go wrong, then it is the whining, instead of meeting the challenges of our day. that is what i really want to talk about today. this is a state that has a long haul view, where people think about, what do we need to do next to move us ahead? the first thing i will start i will start with is the challenges. i was here in the science center this morning to talk about climate change. it is a long-haul challenge, but it is not, because it is here right now. you see it in the rising sea level, the weird weather events, and the president had the audacity to make fun of me for talking about climate change in a snowstorm.
i wrote back "climate science is on my side, donald trump, and i would like to see how your hair would fare in a blizzard." [laughter] ms. klobuchar: i think humor is a very important thing to use against this guy. strategically, yes but humor -- he is not going to think this is funny. [laughter] the science is on our side, but it is a way you explain it to people so it makes sense to them, especially in the middle of the country. that is something i bring to this, as the leader of the ticket, which not many other people could bring to it. that is being from the heartland and being able to have said yes, i have been to the greenland ice sheet. i was there with a group of people, senator sanders was with me and it was a bipartisan group, and we went on a tour, basically in these little boats and we saw the icebergs, and the captain said, i will try
to be careful here, because if we hit an iceberg, we die in 30 seconds. [laughter] i was like, ok. but it was an incredible mass that we saw. and now with the news that we are losing in one day enough water from that ice sheet to fill over 400 million olympic olympic size pools. the fact that you see a changing of our ocean -- i was learning today at the science center about oyster fishermen and how if they are commercial, they have had to change the water they are using from the ocean, because it has gotten too acidic, and they have to make changes to it. these are the kinds of things -- these things might sound small -- it might be one oyster fishermen, but it is not when it is cumulative with your whole
world. and in the middle of our country, it is so important that we talk about this in a different way, right? that is the raging fires we have seen in places like colorado and arizona, where they sadly lost both firefighters, or when you think of northern california and paradise and the dad driving through the lapping flames with his little girl, with their neighborhood burning behind them singing to her to calm them . it is a one minute video, but it really says it all. as you see the fire over their car. or the flooding we have seen in places like missouri and nebraska and iowa just this summer. there is a woman named fran who showed me her binoculars, and she said, look through these. this is my house. i bought it with my husband. we are going to retire in his house. we lived there with our four-year-old. she said this house has been here for almost a century, it is so sturdy, there is still horsehair in the plaster. she said, i love my house, i love the way the light comes through the kitchen.
then i said, where is the kitchen? she goes no, no. it is all underwater. half of the house is under water. i say, where is the river? the water is raging by us. she said no, those are two roads. the river is two and a half miles away and has never come that close to our neighborhood before. that is climate change. that is climate change in the middle of the country, where in our nation, homeowners insurance has gone up 50% -- by the way, that is an economic argument to make to people. i think it is important that when people are seeing it right in front of them, we make the case for them. yes, it is about science and the temperature numbers and all of that, but it is also about what they are seeing and how it is going to change their lives, whether they are a farmer in the middle of nebraska or whether they are oyster fisherman off the coast of maine. these things are happening right
now, so that is the first challenge. you know what the answers are. day one as your president, i will get us back into the international climate change agreement. [applause] sen. klobuchar: when the president first announced he was taking us out of that agreement, there were only two countries not in it. nicaragua and syria, and now they are both in it. that leaves us. day two bring back , the rules president obama had worked on for years, and that is the clean power rules, as well as the gas mileage standards, which the car companies were ready to comply with anyway. they want them, a number of them, and trump just threw them out. those are things, these first three things i mentioned, you can do without congress -- hey. not right away. that does not mean i will do things like he does, that are illegal, but there are a bunch
of things you can do in the first 100 days. and i believe in 100 day plans. fdr is the first one that put one out. we were in an economic crisis, but he did it for another reason as well, because people had lost institutions and their government. he wanted to jumpstart it and make a very quick, different attitude and a different quality of our government and make very clear to people he was going to be a different kind of president. that is why you do 100 day plans, especially right now. i would start out with a promise that i would do no mean tweets, ok? and then we have climate change. legislation. and there is all kinds of things you can do there, from the investment in research and development, which we will need so dearly if we not just wants to get to the goals that we have for the year 2050, but there will be still co2, there will be problems even if we make dramatic changes, it will remain in the air. we will have to think through how we do that, appliance standards, one of my only climate change jokes i can give
you is that we will build a fridge to the next century. [laughter] sen. klobuchar: as well as a number of other things we have to do when it comes to putting a price on carbon and other things. i think this is doable. we have had these opportunities -- one of them was after 9/11. bush was president, people were ready to do something. they knew where the terrorists had come from and that we wanted to be not dependent on those nations, those arab nations that were involved in that. but we did not do it. remember what he asked us to do? he asked us to go shopping, you know? we got through 9/11 as a country in a big way, but to me, that was an opportunity where if he had said, we as a nation are going to come together and we do not want to be dependent on saudi arabia and we do not want to be dependent on some of these other countries, we could have done it.
but we lost that opportunity. then there was another opportunity, right before president obama won, we were one vote short in the senate. i was standing with maria campbell in the back, getting a renewable electricity standard which i had long supported for the whole nation. you can do regional differences. we lost by one vote, then president obama came in. i remember we met with him and i raised my hand and was the third person to speak, about doing a renewable electricity center. he said yes, he wanted to do it. so the decision was made to go , to cap and trade first, and i supported it strongly, but the problem is we did not cap the vote, so we did not do either. so we missed that opportunity. the next opportunity is now, and we are not going to have another one like this. that is the 2020 election. and so, i actually am excited about this, because i feel the change, the same change we are seeing
there. you have a low unemployment rate here in new hampshire, that is a blessing in some ways, but it also is a challenge because you want to have more incubators, more small businesses, more people here, more entrepreneurs, but you have a low unemployment rate. so how do you get at that? to me, the answer is workforce training. make sure people are getting trained in the jobs we have now. we do not have enough people going in the trades and a whole bunch of other things that are actually pretty well paying, and looking at how we make it easier for people to go to college. i figure if millionaires can refinance their yacht, then students should be able to refinance their student loans at a better rate. [applause]
sen. klobuchar: so that is everything from free one and two-year degrees, something that president obama wanted to do, which is the fastest area of jobs right now. and you can do that right up front with community colleges. and then doubling the pell grants. there are 6000 a year now. imagine the difference that makes. double them to 12,000 a year and make it so that it goes up to income levels of $100,000 from $50,000. you double both sides of it. that is a significant investment and that way, the money goes to the people who most need it, which is what i really want to do, and it will just make it better for all of us, especially in a state that has high student debt, like you do. that is one thing. and more with tax credits and other things you can do -- by the way, i would pay for this, i pay for everything that i put out there, because i will not be another donald trump presidency, ok? i am going to be much more careful about how we do this stuff. i would pay for this with the buffet rule, which is, as you know, warren buffett says, why do i pay lower rates to taxes than my secretary?
you just flip that, $124 billion right now, you get from that. the refinancing existing student debt. with that, i would actually again target it. right now, there is a public service free payment for 10 years. it is a good idea in concept, . not working really well. it is good for teachers and other things, but it is not working well, because it is a mess how they do it. let's make this work. that will be simple enough by getting rid of betsy devos, ok? [cheers and applause] sen. klobuchar: then expand this -- that was called a cheap applause line, but ok -- then expand this into in-demand occupations, nursing, things where we want more -- there is actually a list of them -- where we want more people to go into those jobs. then you work in one of those types of jobs, it does not have to be the same one, for 10 years, and then you get your remaining loans repaid. it is just hooking up what we need in our economy with the obvious problem of debt and the
cost of school. another piece of this, immigration reform. i think this is an economic driver for our country. helen was talking about her own parents -- we have been built on immigrants, this country, right? and when you look at the numbers, 70 of our fortune 500 companies are headed up by people who were born in another country. 25% of our u.s. nobel laureates were born in another country. why do we want to shut out the talent, when we need workers on our factories and our fields? we need workers in our nursing homes, workers in our hospitals. i lead a bill that allows people to do their residency in medical schools in other countries, if they are in good standing, they can do that residency in underserved areas or urban areas, including rural areas as well. and i have not been able to expand that with this administration, but it is a really smart way to help with some needs that we have in our economy. that is why, to me, the answer
is comprehensive immigration reform. not only would it give us a path to citizenship for people that obey the law, that don't have serious crimes, who are willing to work, but it would also give us some money. it reduces the deficit by $158 billion in 10 years. that is why grover norquist was for it. that is why the chamber cio and cfo were for it. it was the bill that was in speaker boehner's freezer that never got out. that bill, if we do something like it, that will help give us targeted resources for border security, and it will also help us when we switch the asylum to be sought in those northern triangle countries, so we do not have this chaos at the border , and it can also help us to work with those countries. this is a sensible plan. it is a new hampshire style sensible plan. it will be very good for our economy, which is the very reason that donald trump does not seem to want to do it. but a number of republicans have
supported it in the past. other challenges we can get at -- health care costs, i think you know what my position is, and i want to remind people with these debates -- i know they get a little bit like, how much division can we have? there is more that unites us than divides us. all right? [applause] does not want to throw out the ss not want to throw out the affordable care act and put people that have pre-existing conditions out there with no insurance, which is exactly what the president is trying to do right now in texas. with this public option, it would bring down the cost for 13 million people and add 12 million more people, give them access to insurance that do not have it right now, and would create a nonprofit option to compete with the insurance companies and allow people to transition over to that.
i believe in the doctor's creed, "first do no harm," and i think that is the smartest way to start. [applause] sen. klobuchar: second thing is pharmaceutical prices. pharma has two lobbyists for every member of congress -- think about it. they double-team them and double tag them. they give them money. i can only tell you right now, not only do i not take pac or lobbyist money, but the minute i got to the senate, i started to work on this. that is why i lead the bill for negotiation of prices under medicare to unleash the power of the seniors of this country, to get lower prices. [applause] sen. klobuchar: i also lead the bipartisan bill with senator grassley. it was with senator mccain, who i miss very much, and today is actually the anniversary of his death, which has been a big loss for those of us who were close to john. last time i saw him at his ranch with cindy, and my husband was there, and he could not talk very well, but he pointed to a line in his book that said "there is nothing more liberating than fighting for a cause larger than yourself." and that is what he did -- [applause]
sen. klobuchar: when he voted to uphold the affordable care act, and that is what he did when he made that decision to allow people to be released in front of him in that cell in vietnam that i got to stand in front of with him, and that is what he did on some of these issues like pharmaceuticals. he bucked his party. but we were not able to get that done, but we had republican votes. we had about 14 on an amendment vote that i did with senator sanders. the bill now, it is grassley-klobuchar, i think, and it is a bill that would allow for less expensive drugs to come in from canada, since in the northern states, we can see canada from our porch, right?
we can see the prices they have, and it would create the kind of competition that we would like to see. ok, that is another challenge and how we need it. i could just keep going with you down the line, but i will end with one big challenge, and that is the challenge of our democracy. we will not get anything like this done or be able to bring back world order and work with with our allies, like jeannie does so well when she leads our support for nato, because the president does not do it. or we will not be able to do something about iran enriching uranium when the president gets us out of that iranian agreement, leaving it in the hands of our allies and giving china and russia more leverage -- that is what he did. we are not going to be able to do any of this unless we can win. that would be my last plea to you, is our democracy. because right now, mitch mcconnell has a couple of bills sitting on his doorstep, and we are going to be going back there very shortly. one of them, unrelated to the democracy, is a gun safety bill. three bills -- one is a background check bill that is very similar to the bill that was sponsored originally by two a-rated nra members.
toomey and manchin. that bill passed the house and is sitting on his doorstep. the other one is the closing the charleston loophole, and in case you forget what that was, because the word "loophole" sounds so nice and sweet, that is not it at all. that was a white nationalist went into an african-american church, and gunned down the people. why did he have the gun? because they did a background check, and the rule was you only have three days to do it. they could not catch his conviction in three days, and he was able to get the gun. if they went up to 10 days, they believe they would have caught it, if you can believe this. that is the second bill. the third is my bill, and that is for serious domestic abusers -- right now, if they get convicted of domestic abuse against a wife or a husband, then they cannot go out and get an ak-47. but if it is against a girlfriend that they don't live with, they can. and yet half of the homicides have involved non-dating
partners, basically. dating partners, basically. that is what this bill is, in addition to stalking provisions. this bill got 33 votes in the house of representatives from republicans. that is why it is sitting there now. so he has no excuses on any of these bills, and the president could have just called us back in a second, since the republicans in the senate, when they say jump, they say how high, basically, and he did not do it, because he wanted to see if public opinion is going to ebb on guns. i don't think it is. like new hampshire, i come from a proud hunting state. i look at these provisions and i say, will this hurt my uncle in the deer stand? i can tell you that these would not, nor what a ban on military style assault weapons that i have long supported.
[applause] sen. klobuchar: and norwood magazine limits. think about that. that guy in dayton. in 30 seconds, he killed nine people. the police did everything right. they got there in one minute. something i have been doing around the country, in arkansas, south carolina, and rural parts of iowa -- is to go to areas , where it is more republican, and talk about this issue. one of my greatest honors from this was the little rock paper, on the front page it said last week something about -- i was standing with a bunch of legislators -- klobuchar brings gun control, but the subheading was, "she says it won't hurt hunting." it is important to appeal to people on those grounds because the nra has been telling people of lies, and it is important to get the facts out. doorstep, but the other bills on t, but the other bills on his doorstep are our democracy, and that is a path to move forward on backup paper ballots. that is a bill i have led with senator langford, and we have several versions of this bill, but basically, 11 states do not
even have backup paper ballots, or they have partial, new jersey has no backup paper ballots. the russians know what those states are, and it is just a mess. they could hack into a few counties, and the presidential race would be up in the air. that has to be fixed, as well as the social media companies who have initially resisted and are now kind of neutral on this idea that they have to follow the same rules as the tv, radio, and newspaper. if you are a little newspaper in nashua, or one of your radio stations can follow the rules and say, who pays for the ads and what they are so campaigns can see, why couldn't $1 trillion companies do that? they are getting paid for these political ads, and in hillary's election, $1.4 billion was spent on these ads. in 2020, they believe $3 billion to $4 billion will be spent on issue ads and on these campaign ads on the internet.
and they are voluntarily doing a few things, but it is not the same as what tv, radio, and your little newspapers are doing. when i asked one of them early on why they couldn't, they said they couldn't tell the difference between what an issue ad -- i had a hearing -- my little paper in minnesota could do it, so i do not understand why you can't do it. and just to give you an example of how bad this is, in the 2016 election, the "washington post" had this ad, and we had it at a hearing. we never knew about this for months afterward -- it was an ad of an african-american woman, and she called our office later. she was an innocent. they used her picture, and these ads were bought in rubles. it went on african-american facebook pages in swing states, and said this -- "why wait in line to vote for hillary? you can just text your vote at 86135."
that was the real ad. that is a crime. remember when the republicans in new hampshire jammed the phone lines, and someone went to jail over that? that is what this is. it is not just racist, it is not just anti-democratic, it is a crime. but who would have known that it happened? because they did not require disclosing the ads that have been bought in real-time, so no one knew about it. that is what we are talking about with the honest ads bill that i had with mccain and now, lindsey graham is the lead republican on it. but guess who doesn't want it through? mitch mcconnell and the white house. and so i bring these things up, because they are not, like, presidential 2020 things, i will get them done, but i know you are good citizens and you will care. that is my story. so, how do we win this? the number one concern for everyone. first of all, i think we take this on with an optimistic economic agenda. i have given you my ideas. secondly, we take this guy on by
standing our ground. when he says racist, horrible stuff. yes. but sometimes, when he just does his normal weird stuff, you just ignore him, ok? because he just wants to capture the news cycle every single day. he wants us to go down the rabbit hole with him every single day. and the third thing is, yes, you use some humor and point out how absurd he truly is. i had a high point last weekend when my tweet did better than any of his. [laughter] sen. klobuchar: and i actually wrote it in the parking lot in manchester outside the hotel. what it said was, "what's the difference between donald trump and greenland? greenland's not for sale." [laughter] sen. klobuchar: ok, so -- [applause] sen. klobuchar: that is how we win, and we also win with someone heading up the ticket that can win. you know this in the state. you have so many independents and moderate republicans that
can sway elections. that is why i look at those debates as you have to make the case with your economic agenda, but you also have to be able to make the case to those people who are watching, something like 10% of those trump voters, it is a range who voted for president obama. you have to show them what his unmet promises are, why he is so corrosive to our country, and you have to have someone at the head of the ticket that has shown a history of not only getting things done, which i appreciated that helen pointed out, and knows how to pass things -- by the way, people care about right now, because we have a president who has not been able to get anything done. but also that you can win. i have won every race, every place, every time. i have won in the reddest of congressional districts, never losing once. three times i won in michele bachmann's district, ok? and i did not do it by selling
out on our values, i did it just by going everywhere, by willing to talk to people who did not always agree with me, by making the case honestly, and i have won democrats, independents, republicans, liberals, i have even won conservatives. i have won over and over again, all the way back to elementary school -- [laughter] sen. klobuchar: yes. those guys on the debate stage are always saying i have done that. i have done this, i have done that. my slogan, which i have since abandoned, was "all the way with amy k." [laughter] senator klobuchar: it could make the viral moment with c-span viewers. yay, c-span viewers. hello. hello to paul who just wrote, "when are you going to be on on c-span?" so this is how i think we win, and we do it by acknowledging that our country is divided, that this guy is trying to
divide it, but that we know in our core, because we know some of our neighbors and friends that don't always agree with us, that there is more that unites us than divides us, we can appeal to the better angels, that we see ourselves as americans through and through, from the beginning to the end, and that what this guy is doing is not consistent with how we run our country. it just isn't. and when you've got a president -- and you always think about this from your past, when republican presidents would go on tv with a major announcement. you would tune in, maybe your kids would watch it -- ok, fine, you thought it was important for your kids to see, because they are president of the united states. you would tell them later, you never know what this guy is going to say at a rally. you want to turn down the sound, because you are afraid a kid is going to hear something that you do not want them to hear. he just does this because he
does not want to deal with things like alzheimer's, long-term care, or infrastructure, these bread and butter issues we know we have to deal with. he wants to distract you. i will make you one promise. that is when i am your president and i am on tv, you will never turn the sound down. i will never embarrass you, and you will be proud to have me as your president. thank you. [cheers and applause] sen. klobuchar: thank you, guys, thank you. wow, ok. ok. helen, we are doing something new. this is kind of our new way of doing this, because that way we found out we get more questions from women. [laughter] sen. klobuchar: ok, who is that? ok, let's see. i don't know if i can read this. from nashua -- what are your plans for affordable housing? that is a good question.
where are you? say your name, right, so i don't -- >> [inaudible] sen. klobuchar: ok, very good. thank you. it is about housing. this is really interesting from a new hampshire standpoint -- oh yeah, i guess i can't put them all in my pocket. because i think you all know that you have issues with housing, and i do not think it is the first thing people would think about with new hampshire, but you have a low unemployment rate, you want to have people move here, you want to keep young people and families here. and it is the same thing all over the country in varying degrees. i think it is always thought of as an urban issue, and it is an urban issue. i was just in san francisco, astronomically high housing prices. but i think the key, and i have put a plan out on this, you can see it on my website at amyklobuchar.com -- hi, c-span -- and you can see that plan on housing. but for me, it is about housing credits and putting incentives in place to be working on housing, to be working on tax credits and other things. we have a whole plan out there. i think i will, instead of going
in the details on that, how do we get this done politically? this is a great example of the rural-urban divide bridge, because a lot of people think it is urban, or if you are rural, you think it is rural. it is both. while we have different needs, we need to merge them together, because there are so many issues in rural america right now. you have seniors in aging housing, and you would like them to move -- not all of them, but if they are willing to and they might want to move closer into town, into a condo or apartment, and then you could rehab some of the housing. families can move in, those kinds of issues, and we have to create incentives for that. and just look at where the housing is in the density areas, and i think it is actually exciting to do. i have got a bunch of rural areas in my state where literally we are bleeding work, because we do not have the housing for people to move into, and so the midsize companies are sending buses two hours away to
get employees, because they do not have them -- they cannot live right in the town, because there is not enough housing. i also have the urban perspective of when i was county attorney, and we had truancy cases, and we would help them, we worked with them and their parents getting them into school in a positive way, but when we look back, how did kids get involved? we looked at some of the more serious crimes, very serious crimes -- murder, rape -- and we looked back. what happened? it all started when kids started missing school, for a lot of them. then we looked at, well, why are they missing school? a lot of that was because they did not have a stable house. so much of that, when you have that job that i have, you have the cases in front of you, but you are not doing the job unless you figure out how to prevent crime from happening in the first place. that is how i got involved in drug courts and those things,
but housing was a big part of that as well. thank you for that question, and it has got to be a big part of what we do. the last thing i just want to mention, in case we don't get a question is long-term care. we have a silver tsunami -- i used that word, and aarp told me it was too negative -- silver surge. we have a silver surge coming our way, which is good because people are living longer, but there has not been one debate question yet about seniors and what we are going to do about seniors, and how we can make this aging transition a good one for everyone, which it should be. and that is about housing, it is about assisted living, and it is about making long-term care insurance more affordable. we put forward some ideas on that and making that a big option, so short of medicaid, which we have to keep strong, duh, but short of medicaid, that should be a big part of what we do. i am getting distracted by his
boston hat, because i am such a twins fan, but it is ok. just -- it set me back, but the twins are having a pretty good season. [laughter] so long-termr: care insurance, making that more affordable and creating incentives to buy it. then, of course, long-term care, period. and finally, alzheimer's, the most expensive disease in the country. 14 million people set to have it by 2050 if we do not do anything about a cure and we do not do anything about this. my own dad is struggling with it. he got it late, late, late, which makes it easier, but it is never easier once and when there they are in front of you, but they do not remember who you are. i am sure there are many people out here that know exactly what i am talking about. that all fits into housing, because it is about assisted living as well. all right? i will go faster. i am going to lose the c-span audience if we are not careful. ok, kate -- see what i mean
about more women when you write them down? tell me about what your ideas are for infrastructure improvement. ok, you want to see where you are, kate -- she is on a bicycle? no, i am kidding. she is over there. all right. this is something that trump promised on election night which made me so sad. i do not know if anyone i wasered that, because so sad. well, at least he mentioned infrastructure, trying to find some silver lining, but it wasn't one, because he has not moved on it. recently there was a meeting in the white house with speaker pelosi and senator schumer, and they came ready to go because our caucus really wants to move on that, and he just blew it up, because he did not want to talk about how to pay for it, which i think is really important. here are my ideas. i mentioned the importance of this community real project right here.
in a big way, we have roads, bridges, water infrastructure, sewer infrastructure -- think about what we have just seen going on in new jersey with their issues with water, what we have seen in flint -- i visited flint recently and talked to the mayor there and some of the electorates and saw firsthand what was happening. it is not always these glamorous ribbon cuttings, sometimes it is the pipe under the ground. it is rural broadband. explain why i cannot do emails in northern new hampshire when i can do them in iceland. true story. i can, i went to iceland. and they have volcanoes there, but they were still able to hook everything up. you can do this by 2022 if you put the money into it. my plan is a $1 trillion infrastructure plan. it is paid for by rolling back the parts of the republican tax bill that were very regressive, like the corporate tax rate -- if you bring it to 25%, you save $400 billion in 10 years. you save $150 billion if you go back to international taxes the way they were, before they changed them.
you can do the infrastructure financing authority, which is an existing bipartisan bill. you put a little in, you get a lot in matching funds from states and other entities. that is $300 billion. then you have buy america bonds basically for infrastructure. you can get easily to $1 trillion. instead of talking about it and swaggering around about it like he does, i will actually get it done. [applause] sen. klobuchar: ok, let's see. [laughs] sen. klobuchar: ok, this is tom from amherst. where you are, tom? there you are, hiding behind the tree. what is your biggest challenge in dealing with the multitude of democratic candidates and positioning yourself within that group? not a challenge at all, no, no. so this is the way i look at it. we are in the playoffs right now, and that is important.
there are only 10 candidates that have made that debate stage , and so for me, especially from a state that is not as big as some of the other states, especially from a situation where i was not running for president for years, or i did not run for president before, so you have to build in a different way. and so for me, time is important so that i can keep building and , talking to people like this. and you are my ambassadors to go out there and explain what my views are and why i can win. it is old-fashioned grassroots politics. i would note, thanks to some of the early states in the past, some very successful candidates were in single digits at this very point, including jimmy carter, including bill clinton, and there's a number of others as well. because it is just
not automatic the first name that you know. people have to get to know the candidates to figure out who the best president would be. secondly, as for how i position myself, i am from the midwest. from the heartland. and i think when you look at what went wrong in the last election, there were a lot of things, including a foreign country invading our election and slowing down the momentum of our candidate when all of the emails were revealed from her campaign chairman. i am not going to go into all of the issues, but part of this is that we cannot leave the midwest behind. my husband is the third of six boys. his mom had four boys, and she wanted a girl, and she had identical twin boys. they lived in a mobile home for most of his time growing up in triple bunk beds, and they would go on one vacation every single summer in their station wagon. he was always the good boy, the
one in the middle. the rumor has it, that maybe once or twice, he was so quiet he might get left behind at the gas station. [laughter] sen. klobuchar: so if you want to win nationally, even though we are in this great state of new hampshire, i will not leave the midwest behind at the gas station. [laughter] [applause] sen. klobuchar: and i can win in those states like wisconsin, where my mom is from, because i know those states, and i know how to win in those states. that is what differentiates me from most of the field, actually, except for just a few others. i am someone who is honest and to the point. we have heard about that. i push things, i get them done, and i think that is really important. but mostly, we have a guy in the white house that has now made over 10,200 lies and having someone who is honest will be really appealing to the people of this country. having someone who is willing to set out the goals with deadlines, that is one of the reasons i did the 100-day plan,
and i have done it before in other jobs i have had, because i think it is important to make changes right away and make it clear that we are bringing back our country to some sanity. and then finally, i love your two senators, so there you go. and if you like them, you will like me. i just think that you have to have a solution-based approach to what we are doing, and you have to have a bold vision of for this country which i have. i do. but you also have to remember , hey, we have to bring people with us in how we talk about that bold vision and have the ability to do that. [applause] sen. klobuchar: so i'm going to end with one thing, a different little different story, because i told it over the seacoast. because someone asked about bringing young people in. that is a story i heard actually at my daughter's college graduation, and it was -- your red sox hat has me going on baseball -- it -- it was theo
epstein, who was the general manager, who became the cubs' general manager. he was the speaker at her graduation. and i kept going -- seriously? you know, this twins fan. then it was somebody, i think it was dick durbin, who said no, he is an interesting guy. so i am sitting there, and he starts speaking, and he told this incredible story, and i will make a political argument out of it, but it was not really his argument -- the team, the cubs that year, it was a cataclysmic moment, because they of course they had been trying to win the world series for over a century and had been unsuccessful. he said there were thousands of people that literally had radios on the graves of their ancestors so they could hear the seventh game, and everyone thought they were going to win, and it
was this -- he is sitting with his son, and his young son is really into odds, and he is telling him the numbers, we are going to win, dad -- 70%, 80% of as the game goes on, and they somehow blow a three-run lead , and the clouds are coming in, and the odds are looking bad. all of a sudden, they have to have a rain delay. the water was pouring down. he said when there is a rain delay and the game is going bad, a lot of the times that people are looking at their phones -- but he stood outside the locker room, and he said the youngest team they had ever had, the most diverse, and the player with the worst season was leading the discussion. they were talking about their season and what it meant, and how no matter if they won, it was a season like no other and how proud they were. and they went out and they won that game. and then he said, so that is what you have to ask yourself -- to all of the students -- what do you do when there is a rain delay?
he said, do you look down and withdraw, or do you look at each other and go forward as a team? ok, that is the end of his story, now i will tell you mine. we are in one big rain delay. ok? our democracy is in a rain delay with the clouds coming down. we have delayed taking action on these things that you know in your heart, that america knows in their heart that we have to do, but the question is -- what do we do? are we just going to withdraw and going to this divisive world of donald trump where he pits us against each other? or are we going to rise to the better part of our nature? are we going to rise to the american way, which is finding a way to work together as a team? i think we are going to get through this rain delay, but only if you do not give up. and we remember the march we were on. the day after the inauguration, where i was standing on that
stage, i sat between john mccain and bernie. i took a selfie. i remember this day. i took a selfie and some reporter took a picture of me taking a selfie, and the picture went viral because it said -- "woman takes selfie with john mccain and bernie sanders." and the next day, it became viral with the words "this is why we march." and the next day, millions of people marched, including in this stage. and the day after that, 6000 women signed up to run for office. and then on day nine, when that mean-spirited muslim order came out, people spontaneously showed up at the airports. on day 100, my favorite march, the march for science. what do we want? science. when do we want it? after peer-review. that day in summer where john mccain and two other republicans joined with every single democrat to turn down that
eir mean-spirited effort -- then to repeal the affordable care act. then you go into the fall and the first glimmers of hope in these legislative races in new jersey and virginia, where these incredible candidates that no one thought could win win in these tough races, including my in my favorite in new jersey where the legislator was up and said on the day of the women's march, i hope they will be back in time to make dinner. he got beaten by an african-american woman. [cheers & applause] sen. klobuchar: ok? that happened. then you fast-forward to parkland. where those students did not just march and become icons. they motivated students all over the country to talk to their dads, who were hunters, and say, maybe we can do background checks. they then voted at record levels in the midterm, which gets us to 2018. where things to your good work in new hampshire and iowa and other places in the country
, including orange county, california, where they did all of these house seats. they did it because they believe, and they did not give up because there was a rain delay. they kept working. this is how we turn the people's house back into the people's house again. [applause] sen. klobuchar: all right? this march does not end on this beautiful new hampshire sunny day. it continues into november 2020. don't give up. what do you do when there is a rain delay? you rise to the occasion. you work as a team. i believe in our country. i know we can get this done. so please join us. sign up. do whatever you can. we are in it to win. we are going to win it for the country. thank you, everybody. [cheers and applause] helen: thank you, all. if anyone would like a picture with senator klobuchar, we have a few amy things here. down, and thank
