we have right now. i hope they know that's what we try to do every day. >> senator elizabeth warren is here. her book is "this fight is our fight." in it she say accuses the government and the wealthy. welcome back. >> thank you. it's good to be here. >> let me ask you the broad question in washington in terms of the attack as well as what happened at the game last night. is it possible, is it likely that somehow something very positive can come out of this? >> it is always possible. we're human beings and this is what we hope for. it is our job, republican, and democrat, and independent. we're there to try to make it a better country. >> what are you going to do? >> i'm going to stay in the fight i am, that's to make the government better for the working poor and everybody who needs a chance to get ahead.
8:06 am
>> that's not a question of what party you're in. it's what values you hold? >> i think that's exactly right. it is about values. what is the job of government. where is it we're trying to head. you know, there was a time when everything pretty much that happened in washington was filtered through the lens of does it help build a middle class, does it help create opportunity for kids like me. i'm the daughter of a janitor who got a chance to go to college because america was investing in opportunities. i went to a college that cost $50 a semester. 1935 to 1980 gdp goes up and 90% of america, everybody participates in growth. they get 70% o all the new income. 1980 forward, it just doesn't happen. the 90% doesn't participate in that growth. all of the growth goes to the top 10%.
8:07 am
that's not right. >> you say that nobody who works full time should live in poverty. >> yeah. >> and yet they do that and yet they do. that's exactly right. you know, u i'm somebody who lived this very personally. when i was and my daddy had a heart attack and my mom had been a stay-at-home mom and my three brothers were in the military. we were a paycheck-to-paycheck family and when that paycheck disappears, you learn pretty fast what that means. i remember the day we lost our car, we were about to lose our house, and my mom pulls on her best dress, walks to a sears and gets a minimum wage job and that minimum wage job saved our house and it also saved our family. but here's the deal. back when i was a kid, a minimum wage job would support a family of three. and the reason for that was because of the laws that were written in washington. today a minimum wage job won't
8:08 am
support a mama and a baby, won't let someone working full time rent a two-bedroom apartment anywhere in america. and the reason for that is because the minimum wage is now set in washington with an eye on the profitability of mcdonalddo, the profitability of walmart, not on what it takes for a family to survive. >> the passion that you feel in your position, the other side feels it. they say part of the was of this shooting was the heated rhetoric on both sides, that people were so angry and so -- there was so much acrimony in this country and so much hatred. to you think the dialogue we're having needs to be toned town on both sides. do you think the shooting attributed to that the other day many. >> i through we all have to take responsibility for what we say.
8:09 am
do understand there's a lot where we try to continue to work together. it doesn't catch the headlines in the same way. just this week, i have introduced three different bills this week. one is to increase pay for our enlisted military, and that's with joanie it gives domestic victims of terrorists access to military hospitals and to the help ha they need. you know, we're continuing -- sth that's the kind of thing that appeals to both republicans and democrats, isn't it? >> is that a bad thing, charlie? >> nobody says it's bad, but point is who could be against that. >> but there was a time in merge when the idea that someone working 40 hours a week ought to be able to support a family also
8:10 am
appealed to republicans and democrats, and that's what's changed in washington. >> is it fair -- >> let me ask you. you mentioned hospitals. what's happened? you mentioned -- not a lot of people are talking about the senate health care bill right now. >> it is absolutely the right question to ask when you're talking about bipartisanship. right now the senate republican leadership has 13 men locked behind doors negotiating what they're going to do on a health care bill, won't let democrats the bill shoo the president dud say the house care bill was mean. >> that's the same bill that he threw the party for right after it passed. i mean we need to be able to see this bill, not to be able to decide a month later that it's mean after it becomes law. and yet the republicans won't let the democrats in. and yet here's the thing. this is a bill that's going to touch every american family. everybody who's got an elderly
8:11 am
relative in a nursing home, everybody who has a child with special needs, these cuts to medicaid will touch millions of families. it's going to touch everybody. >> sorry to cut you off. it's good to have you here. >> thank you. >> her book is called "the fight is our fight. ""it's on sale now. >> there's a new study on what fats are good for the heart and what are not. dr. tara narula with the findings
