And, now, two of the upper chamber's most liberal members (Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren), along with representatives Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), have jointly introduced a bill that would aim to make college more affordable for more Americans. "We stay focused on what they are doing to American families".

But Sanders did talk about the election he - and Democrats - lost previous year, as well as the contest that Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA will face in 2018.

"I grew up in an America which was not ideal, but every day we had a better than 90 percent chance that we would do better than our parents", Warren added. "What he did is he developed campaign rhetoric and proposals that addressed some of those issues", Sanders said.

He then issues a rallying cry, vowing to fight the order "every step of the way".

Warren, a Democrat, and Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, are among the top voices in the Senate opposed to Trump. "Yeah, they've got the money".

But she didn't endorse Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign, disappointing his supporters in the process.


"Bernie Sanders fights for what's right and he fights from the heart", Warren said in her introduction of the Vermont senator. He said billionaires should pay their fair share. "Our job is to encourage our people to get the best education they can, not punish them for doing that".

"There is a lot of beauty in this country, a lot of extraordinary people who want this country to be what it can be", Sanders said.

"How in God's name do they win elections?"

"If you sit home and think Donald Trump won because all of the people who voted for him are racists or sexists or homophobes, I think you got it wrong". Hillary Clinton frequently assailed the Sanders plan's lack of an income limit, often offering some variation of the line that "I don't think taxpayers should be paying to send Donald Trump's kids to college", as she said during one debate. "We are going to stand together" ...

"We don't have the tools", Warren said. "We are going to create an economy and a government that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent".
