MSNBC anchor Savannah Guthrie shut down Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand (D-NY) during the second night of the first Democratic Party debates.
“The debate we are having in our party right now is confusing because the truth is there is a big difference between capitalism on the one hand and greed on the other,” Gillibrand explained. “So all the things we are trying to change, is when companies care more about profits than about people.”
“If you are talking about ending gun violence, it’s the greed of the NRA and the gun manufacturers that make any progress impossible. It’s the greed of the insurance companies and the drug companies — when we want to try to get health care as a right and not a privilege,” she continued.
“Sen. Gillibrand, thank you,” Guthrie interrupted.
“There may not be disagreement in the party, we want healthy capitalism,” Gillibrand continued.
“We don’t corrupted capitalism,” Gillibrand added.

As House Democrats move closer to indicting President Donald Trump on articles of impeachment, many Trump supporters continue to insist that Trump did nothing wrong when, on July 25, he tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Moreover, some impeachment critics still claim that an investigation of the Bidens’ activities in Ukraine is warranted. The Bidens’ connection to Ukraine was brought up this week by a man at a Joe Biden campaign event in Iowa — and the former vice president and U.S. senator from Delaware wasted no time calling him out.

Progressives fire back at Pete Buttigieg’s ‘bad faith’ claim that tuition-free college proposals are elitist
"The type of attitude that Mayor Pete Buttigieg is exhibiting here is in fact elitist in itself."
Progressives and supporters of tuition-free public college plans on Wednesday denounced South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg's recent claim that offering a free public college education furthered an "elitist" worldview.
At a campaign stop in South Carolina on Monday, Buttigieg told the press that plans to offer public college to all Americans tuition-free push a "narrative" that one must attend college to succeed in the United States.
