BENNET ON THE ISSUES
Criminal justice: “I'm proud that I'm the only candidate that has put forward a police reform plan because we have a police system that is broken and we need to fix it.”
Immigration: “There's not a single person on this stage, if we were president, would ever separate a child from their parents at the border. They have turned our border into a symbol of nativist hostility.”
Health care: “It doesn’t make sense for us to take away insurance from half the people in this room and put huge taxes on almost everybody in this room when we pass a public option.”
Racial divide: “Our schools are as segregated today as they were 50 years ago. Equal is not equal.”
Trade: “It’s not just about trade. We need to invest in America again.”
