7:10 am
>> well first of all, you know, i adore my daughter and i know what she was saying because if you look at senator sanders' proposals going back nine times in the congress that's exactly what he's proposed. to take everything we currently know as health care medicare medicaid, the c.h.i.p. program, private insurance now the affordable care act and roll it together. >> but give health care to everyone. >> well but let's get the specifics, george. that's why i'm saying we are weigh now in the area where we have to go from generalization to specifics. i have said what i will do to improve the affordable care act and i've laid out specifics about out of pocket cost and prescription drug costs. what senator sanders has said and it's his perfect right to say it he wants a national health care single payer system. tell the people how much it will cost them. every analysis shows it's going to cost middle class families and working families and also
7:11 am
explain why after this historic achievement of president obama, we've been fighting to get some kind of a affordable care since harry truman. now he wants to start all over again and i think those are legitimate questions. that's what people are asking me out in iowa and new hampshire and we deserve to give answers. >> senator sanders says you're starting to draw these contrasts because you're getting nervous. >> you know what, i have a different rhythm about how a campaign goes and maybe it's based on my experience compared to his. but we have spent the beginning of this campaign for months now where i've been laying out my policies where i've been meeting with people listening to them about what they want the next president to do. and now we're in the sprint and it is time to draw contrasts so that look there's no comparison between what the democrats believe because we have some of the very same objectives compared to what the republicans are peddling but there are substantive disheses between us and i want people to know about that. this is -- you know this is all in the context of my deep
7:12 am
respect for him and his many years of service, but we have differences on guns on tax, on health care and i think people should have that information before they go to the caucasus or the primary. >> you've also been saying making issue of electability saying you're the candidate who can win in november. here's the ad you put in iowa last week. >> so ask yourself who is the one candidate who can top them? hillary clinton. tested and tough. to stop them stand with her. >> i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. >> that implies you think bernie sanders cannot win a general election. is that what you believe? >> what that ad says is that i have the experience the toughness, the resilience to be able to take on the republicans. i think -- >> it also says you're the only one. >> well i think i will do the best job of making sure we don't let a donald trump or a ted cruz become the next president --
7:13 am
>> why so many polls show bernie sander better against donald trump than you. >> i don't pay tensionattention to the polls. i know that's how folks keep up with it but my perspective they go up and down and i don't pay attention to them. i have a plan and implementing it in iowa and new hampshire and feel good about it and now it's two plus weeks until we know. >> your own campaign saying if you lose iowa it could change the course of the election. is that what you believe. >> you know i want to win but i have a very long view about this. i've been organizing in the states that come after south carolinaevada and in the states that come after that. i can't paint until june last time as we all remember -- i feel very strongly that we must have a democratic president to succeed president obama. that's what i'm going to be making the case for. >> before we go you buy a powerball ticket? >> i did. >> and if you win? >> well, i'll fund my campaign. >> senator clinton, thanks for joining us this morning.

checking account. and most people might say, probably kevin o'leary because he's such a wise guy about everything would say that's a stupid move because the bank only guarantees $250,000 and if the bank went under i'd lose but i figure citi bank wouldn' be going under. it gave me breathing space and time to assess what i wanted to do with the money and to to spend it and invest it wisely. going to my atm machine and seeing $44 million on my receive as i left the bank was worth the two-year wait just to have the thrill of all that happening. so you got to wait and take a breath. >> wait. >> and do something smart if you get lucky, that's one thing but to be smart is something else. >> okay wait and take a breath. >> that's a nice receipt to see, as we. now, kevin, you're an investor and but do you have the samery as barbara does on what to do with the money, how to invest? >> i never, i never agree with barbara and i won't agree now. let me explain what the thinking should be. basically i learned -- >> he needs an i.q. transplant
7:42 am
to agree. >> she told me years ago never spent the principal, only the interest. let's do the math assume it's 1.6 billion by tonight. to take all the money today you only get 800 million. after you pay your tax you're left with about 400 million. if you're wise about this you'll take it and put it into three or four large financial institutions because barbara is right you can't guarantee that much money but you can diversify it. here's the kicker. if you invest in government bonds which are assumed risk-free and a few aaa credits from corporations you'll make about 4% a month. that is $600,000 after tax a month for the rest of your life and for your children and their children's children. the key is do not spend the principal. don't let anybody tell you they need a check from you. just put it in the bank and don't spend anything till the first 600,000 comes in. that's good advice. >> that's good advice. good, sound advice. >> i'll listen if i win.
7:43 am
>> i agree with that guy and i never do. >> i think this is something you'll agree on. the guy i think in florida said hey, if you gave me 25%, i'll keep you anonymous. would you ever do that? >> that's a very bad idea. that. >> that guy is a cheapskate and ought to be in jail. i would get a face-lift. change my hair color and move a few blocks away and remain anonymous. give that guy all that money, what did you say, 25%? come on. guy in georgia should be examined. >> and you agree. the one time you really do agree, kevin, with barbara. >> i do. the key so this thing is family members will come and ask for money. here's the answer to that one too. when a family member comes after the first month, 600,000 comes in you say to them i am happy to give you money. it's not going to be a loan. it's a gift. but never ever ask me again. that's the key because families will keep coming. give everybody a piece. you decide off the first month's principal but never again.
7:44 am
that includes barbara. she wants me to invest in a restaurant. >> what i would do is put my accountant in the position of being a bad guy and saying no to me. i repeatedly with every 10,000 blizzard problem that people came to me with that wanted me to cure if it's okay with my accountant it's okay with me. he became the bad guy. everybody still liked me but i at least kept the money in my pocket and gave it to who i wanted to. >> barbara and kevin, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> we hope you both bought your tickets. >> everybody, coming up the ultimate mix-up, sir mix a lot. you know what what happens a lawyer accidentally gets the rapper's old phone number. ♪ in your face you get sprung ♪ for a dramatic transformation without the need for fillers your concert tee might show your age...
