WOW, late to the Yang party. Great getting to know this guy. What's not to like? Make America Think Again. #MATH > I LIKE it! Also love Tulsi, Bernie too. Add Yang to list of sane candidates worth American hope. That is all.

I’m a Bernie supporter through and through but damn Yang is super smart and knows what he’s talking about! He’s definitely my 2nd choice ahead of Warren. I’d love to see him on Bernie’s cabinet if Bernie gets the nomination!

The answer to Katie's question about landlords shows clearly that Yang is just another neoliberal, just with a little bit more awerness of the world that his living in (so like Bill Clinton I guess). The core issue with housing is that it's prohibitively expensive to built a housing unit and only the large companies and richest people can afford to do so, and, at the same time, housing is absolutely indispensable for survival. One cannot "buy a fixer-upper" with a 1000 USD, even with "couple of friends". That's the same privileged "teach a men to fish" BS the neoliberal… Read more »

Very stimulating and not just rehashing. Hopefully, this Spurs Andrew Yang forward. As a Tulsi Gabbard supporter, I think exclusion of these two is the worst that can happen to our democratic process.
Katie: You're beautiful!
Love you guys. Important inclusions here. Thx

I have donated to Andrew and I am definitely in his camp. However, I do have a question for him or any of his supporters because I'm having trouble finding this information.
Part of Andrew's pitch is that 78% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Americans account for 5% of the world population and consumes 30% of global resources. So my question is, of the 78% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, what portion of that is due to overconsumption?

Question for Yang Gang, what's the strategy to avoid social welfare programs from being gutted? Politicians could use UBI as a way to say that no one needs other forms of govt assistance. If you're disabled (like my mom), your UBI could be eaten up by monthly care and prescription costs because it changes what help you're eligible for. I get the appeal of UBI, but it seems like it's only been attempted in places that have more regulations and a more generous welfare state.

32:55 "Do I think he abused his power & tried to pressure the Ukrainians to help out slighting Joe Biden? Of course, it seems pretty obvious." I like Andrew Yang but he's wrong about this. If it was 'obvious' he would have been impeached already. The Mueller report didn't find anything impeachable on Trump, the impeachment inquiry did not uncover solid impeachable evidence, most of it has been opinions and hearsay (which would not hold up in a court of law). That said, Yang is right that talking/pushing impeachment is good for Trump's reelection, and bad for democrats. Most of… Read more »

Careful, Andrew, you need to convince Trump supporters to support you. Claiming Trump "obviously" abused his power, when it isn't obvious, will not win them over. You have been walking a fine line so far and you need to keep that up if you want to beat Trump in the general election. Keep focusing on how you'll do better than Trump rather than attack Trump directly.

I like Andrew more and more every time I hear him. I'm still 100% #Bernie2020 but I'm glad to have an ally like Yang to keep the progressive wing in a mode of upward mobility. If Bernie gets hijacked again in the primary, I vote for Adam Kokesh to burn the whole thing down! #Crapitalism #Kakistocracy

This is exactly why the WINNER TAKE ALL election system is failing us!!!
When a candidate gets 25% of the vote and is considered the winner, they then absorb the votes and support of everyone else who DIDN'T want that candidate?!?!
It's the facade of democracy….not to mention the electoral college.

People aren't poor because they're lazy or drug addicts. They're poor because they don't have money. They're plenty of non-poor people who are lazy and on drugs. We should be helping all of them get on a path forward regardless.
