2:20 am
>> thank you for firing up the crowd at all of the work you are doing to deliver up to vote. let's give it up for rosa. [cheers] >> you heard from extraordinary public servants i am proud to serve with. you heard from our united states majority leader chuck schumer, the powerhouse who delivers rest every single day, and our great senator i have worked with for so many years, kirsten gillibrand. and did jim all fire you up tonight? how about our attorney general letitia james. tyler is on the ballot, let's get him elected. antonio delgado i need to have as my partner. is labor here? anyone from labor?
2:21 am
[cheers] i feel it. i am just a warm-up act for the president. i am really excited, a lot of you were saying why is president biden coming to new york so much? let me make it real simple for you, people. he comes here to announce because of their efforts working with chuck schumer and president biden and myself, he comes here to announce 50,000 new jobs because micron is coming here. the largest private sector investment in our state's history, we got that done. who is here not long ago, $20 billion in investment from ibm. he can come any time for that. >> [indiscernible] >> thank you, he is your tonight
2:22 am
because he knows there is no place better than the entire -- better in the entire united states of america then new york. of course he is here. this is the greatest place to be. everybody wants to come to new york. [cheers] >> i think about what has been happening in washington as well, chuck schumer, kirsten gillibrand and our president who is been described as the most transformational pieces of legislation to lift people up since the new deal. that is pretty bold, but that is a statement of fact. that is what democrats have delivered. the new deal reminds us of fdr. does anybody know he lived up the road a little bit? we think about fdr, we think about the new deal and we think about the fact that fdr became president, but he was governor first. he was governor of the state of new york during the crash of
2:23 am
1929, and he had to figure out a way forward. the country was suffering, but he had to worry about new york first, and he brought together some of the brightest minds, frances perkins, and everybody from labor knows the name frances perkins, and he said it plans and set the country on a different path. i am proud to have in my dna as a democrat all of the accomplishments that started back in this state with our then governor who became the president fdr and the new deal. let's think about what we got. support for workers, how about that? [applause] host: we make sure -- gov. hochul: we make sure nobody falls between the cracks, we make sure they have social security and other programs. i am proud to be an fdr style democrat, because that means things are getting done. people are taking note, the problem with democrats, they are
2:24 am
doing all of this good stuff, that have a lot of accomplishments but they do not message the right way. the republicans are better at the messaging. but i will make it real simple for everybody, ok? i can come up with a real simple message. do you want to have good paying jobs? [cheers] gov. hochul: vote democrat. do you want to protect our environment for nations -- for decades to come? vote democrat. do you want to make sure we invest in high-quality education and support are teachers anywhere in this country? then vote democrat. do you want to make sure that we get guns off the street and start saving lives? then you vote democrat. if you want to protect a woman's right to determine what she was to do with her own body? then vote democrat. if you want to protect the
2:25 am
sanctity of the ballot box and fight against voter suppression and protect the essence of our democracy, then you do what? [chanting cote democrat] host: is that a simple enough message for everybody? i am proud to be the governor of the state of new york. we have had some interesting times, i took office unexpectedly. we had to deal with hurricanes and the pandemic got worse, and we had a mass shooting in my hometown of buffalo. we had to deal with the supreme court overturning my right as the governor of new york to protect citizens under the law that was therefore 100 years that says you should not be able to carry a gun in your classroom or on a subway or in our churches or synagogues. i had to do with that. i did it with the fact that they tried to take away the right to
2:26 am
an abortion by overturning roe v. wade. and do you know what my opponent says? no, nothing changed new york. i voted against women's rights, i voted against abortion and all of that but nothing changed after the dobbs decision. do you know why nothing changed year? >> [cheering] gov. hochul: because i have the governor. you have heard from great speakers, you know what is at stake. you know we all need your votes, and all i know is one thing. when democrats turn out to vote in the state of new york, we win . it is that simple. you turn out to vote, we win this. and i am so proud to be joined by the president of the united states. [cheers and applause]
2:27 am
who is a person of great compassion and empathy but also has the strength and intellect to guide our country through the tough times. he has been an amazing partner of all of us. the money he had supported coming back to our state to help us get through the pandemic, lift up our communities, interest in health care in health care and education and infrastructure is all happening because democrats are in charge in washington, and we have to continue to make sure that the democrats are also in charge in the state of new york. and what i am going to say finally before i bring out our president -- he is coming, do not worry. one more minute. i know, i am just the opening i. there are a lot of maga republicans and a lot of talking points about we are going to make hedgerows, we are going to crush the strong blue fortitude in a place like new york. we can get a stranglehold in a place like new york.
2:28 am
we can truly exercise our will and make sure that we have this continuation to talk about lies and scaring people and talking about dividing us and all of those things that we reject as democrats. they say that if they can be successful on tuesday that there is no stopping them across the nation, and that is why this election is important beyond our boundaries, my friends. this is about whether or not we are going to stand up and defend everything we have fought for four generations, why new york -- for generations, why new york is new york. that is what we note the torch pastor was from the women of seneca falls and the advocates of stonewall and the labor movement that started here and the environmental justice that started. all of that weight is on our shoulders as democrats in new
2:29 am
york, and the question is is that torches passed was at this very moment is the torch going to be extinguished or will we allow it to be passed on to the next generation? we will do the right thing and we will do it with the leadership of our great president, joe biden, the 46 president of the united states. let's bring out our president. [cheers and applause] ♪
2:30 am
♪ pres. biden: hello, new york. [cheers] what a great crowd. hello, sarah lawrence college. another great liberal arts school in america, you guys are really good. it is great to be with my good friend who spoke to you earlier today, the leader chuck schumer. chuck and i have gotten a lot done together, and one thing i can tell you, this guy never gives up, never gives up, and
2:31 am
that is good for all of us. and by the way, senator gillibrand, thank you for everything you do for this date. by the way, nobody has been a greater fighter for women's rights than she. she has taken on the military. i mean it, she is a game changer, and jamaal baldwin, lifelong educator, champion of the next generation welcoming us to his district. i had to get a passport from them to get into the district. folks, look, how about that governor of yours? she do something else. she is someone who takes action, she gets things done. new york, you have got two days, two days to make sure the rest of new york knows the good that they have in kathy hochul. two days until one of the -- i do not look at i know but i have
2:32 am
been around a while. somebody said my birthday is coming up, and i said that must be somebody else. [chanting] look, two days the most important election in our lifetime, one of those inflection points, and i mean this sincerely. what is going to happen the next couple of years will have more to do with what this country looks like 20 years from now than anything else. let's be clear.
2:33 am
[indiscernible] this election is not a referendum, it is a choice between two fundamentally different visions of america. i have said from the beginning, my objective when i ran was to build an economy from the bottom up in the middle out, and i will tell you what. it is a fundamental shift compared to that maga mega republicans trickle-down economics. what happened last time under my predecessor, the economy left in ruins. it is the first president in america since herbert hoover to lose more jobs than he had when he came to office, fewer jobs. an employment rate, 6.4%. he lost manufacturing jobs, hundreds of small businesses closed in this state alone let
2:34 am
alone around the nation, thousands, and a country in a pandemic with no way out. when i was sworn in only 3.5 million people would been fully vaccinated. now there are 220 million we got done. so we moved, our approach is working. since i came into office we created 10 million brand-new jobs. the unemployment rate at a historic low of 3.7%, and we are making things here in america again. we are shipping american products overseas instead of american jobs overseas. we have created 700,000 new manufacturing jobs. who is to say we cannot be the manufacturing capital of the world again? i am not joking, where is that written? i signed into law a bipartisan infrastructure law, by the way. the governor opponent --
2:35 am
governor's opponent voted against that. he will probably take credit for it along the line. the most significant investment since eisenhower's interstate highway system, and your governor is making sure all of that money is coming to new york and billions is getting out the door. she is building bridges, electric vehicle charging stations, expanding access to high-speed internet, cleaning up the water system. she is helping new york lead making things in america. i wish your governor -- i was with her a few weeks ago in syracuse, new york and guess what? [indiscernible]
2:36 am
[cheering] companies are investing across america, manufacturing semiconductors at home. one of the reason why inflation went up so much of the first quarter of last year was the cost of automobiles. they could not get computer chips. ain't nothing built these days without computer chips including our defense establishment. microchips, we invented the computer chip in the united states of america forgot about it. the fact is it will create 50,000 jobs are new york on top of the 700,000 we have already created. governor hochul pushed a similar law. we had just done the chips act.
2:37 am
the syracuse investment may will of god, micron's investment may well have gone to texas, but you moved in the state to provide help as well. micron will build a semiconductor factory in syracuse, i began making a commitment -- ibm making a commitment, and this could not have happened without your governor. this is a big deal for the state of this country. for all of our progress, we know a lot of families are still struggling. that is why chuck schumer and with the help of your members of congress i signed inflation reduction act that will reduce the cost of everything that new yorkers pay for every month. congressman selden -- zeldin voted against that as well. it gave medicare the power to negotiate lower prescription
2:38 am
drug costs, the same power at the veteran administration as it has used to cut drug prices in half. they said a big farm that had too much power, they could never get medicare to be in that position. we tried to get it done for years. [indiscernible] would put a cap of $2000 a year on prescription drugs for seniors met -- no matter what their cost. no matter what the cost, some cancer drugs cost as much is that. there will never have to pay more than $2000, and we put a $35 per month cap on insulin to deal with diabetes. how many of you people know somebody who needs insulin for their diabetes?
2:39 am
they are paying an average of $400 a month for now. it caused $10 to make it, at $15 to package it, and they are charging $400 to $800. that is over now. we are coming back to make sure that it not only applies to folks who in fact are on medicare. we originally had it for everybody, but republicans jumped in and blocked, got two democrats to plug in for everyone. we will make sure everyone has a lifesaving insulin regardless of their age before we come back. we are making the biggest investment ever to deal with climate, ever, ever, ever. $468 billion. congressman zeldin voted against it. you know quico canseco's big
2:40 am
spending democrats. guess what, guys? i got handed the biggest deficit in history. guess what? i have cut the deficit $1.4 trillion just this year, it never has it happened before. we also cut $350 billion of the deficit last year and will cut another $250 billion the next year and we did all of these things without raising taxes on anyone who makes under $400,000 a year. not a single penny. i do not want to hear it from republicans. these are the same guys that passed it to trillion dollars tax cut when trump was president that overwhelmingly benefited the super wealthy and corporations and did not pay for one single cent of it, and we are the ones bringing down the debt. they are the ones who raise it,
2:41 am
allowing us to help provide ordinary middle-class citizens shot. we are finally making sure that because corporations begin to pay their fair share. [cheers] we raised the minimum tax on corporate america a staggering 15%. give me a break, firefighters pay more than that. again congressman zeldin voted against. he does not think we should raise taxes. corporates are being 0, 55 of the fortune 500 companies when i got elected the paid zero in federal tax. it is about damn time, they make $40 billion and they pay zero. because we reduce the deficit so much we are in a position to help millions of working and middle-class folks caught in the crossfire of a pandemic and an economic crisis.
2:42 am
and here on this college campus, and you are one of the best colleges in america -- you really are. [applause] and it is not just because my ambassador in japan keeps pounding in my head, it is true. because we acted, we are providing $10,000 debt relief for students, and if you had a pell grant a total of $20,000 relief from student debt. and by the way, 95% of that goes to people earning less than $75,000, so you can start a business, make a down payment on a home, just have a little bit of breathing room. and what about maga republicans doing about it? they are trying to stop it. congressman zeldin called it flat out wrong.
2:43 am
folks, their hypocrisy is unbelievable. that maga republican members of congress -- this is a fact -- check it out. they took hundreds of thousands of dollars or millions of dollars during pandemic relief loans. we were doing ppp -- we were doing ppp loans during the pandemic when their businesses were taking them. they are the ones trying to block student relief. and one of them, marjorie taylor greene, is she got $183,000 in ppp laons -- loans. . they have forgiven those loans. who in the hell do they think they are somebody getting $10,000 and struggling to get through school? that is some of the big stuff we
2:44 am
have done now. let's take a look at our republican friends. do you know what their number one priority is? it is not a joke. they're accidentally being honest, because they are saying it out loud what therefore. they went to get rid of everything we did, the power to give medicare the power to negotiate drug prices, gone. $2000 cap on prescription drugs, gone. $35 cap on insulin, gone. 50% corporate minimum tax, gone. $800 savings on health care premiums that we just got, gone. in fact, these guys want to get rid of the affordable care act altogether. it means that millions and millions of americans who only have insurance because they have a pre-existing condition because it exists the affordable care act, it is gone. no matter how hard they try to get rid of obamacare, i ain't
2:45 am
gonna let it happen. [cheers] and it gets worse, they are coming after social security and medicare. it does not affect you students unless you pay into it already if you have a job. you think i am kidding? do not listen to me. listen to what they are telling us that they're going to do. senator rick scott, the guy in florida in charge of electing republican senators, they put out a brochure. the brochure says just one thing, all federal legislation sunsets every five years. if a law is worth keeping, congress can pass it again. translation, if they do not voted back into existence, it goes out of existence. no longer any major program. and then along came ron johnson of wisconsin. as my mother would say, god bless his soul.
2:46 am
this is real, i cannot believe this. he thinks five years is too long. he thinks social security and medicare should be on the chopping block every single, solitary year. and if congress does not vote to keep it, it goes away. it is not just social security and medicare. he wants to put veterans benefits and everything else at risk. if democrats get control of congress we guarantee veterans will always be cared for. and by the way, as long as i am in the united states presidency i will veto it if they get it anyway. there is one more thing i have to mention. i have signed with is called the pact act. it helps millions of veterans exposed to toxic substances like the firefighters and -- in 9/11 work. these are veterans in iraq and
2:47 am
afghanistan exposed to a burn. -- burn pit. a burn pit is the size of a football field 8 to 10 feet deep. they burned in that everything, poisonous chemicals, tires, jet fuel and so much of the ways. the law guarantees health care for those exposed to those burn pits, and on a personal note, as we used to set when i was a senator, a point of personal privilege. my son, beau biden, was the attorney general of the state of delaware. he should be the one talking to you today, not me. and he gave up his seat as attorney general to go with this group, his regimen from the national guard. you work for the president or you work for the governor. she give up his job and went with his group for a year in iraq.
2:48 am
i was in iraq and afghanistan over 35 times, and i saw him. the place they live in, a little tent, and was only about 250 yards from the burn pit. he was extremely fit, one of the most for guys it is regimen anti-came home with stage iv cancer, which there is no for -- no cure for. and he died. and so many others are in the same situation as he was in without the kind of help families were able to have with our family. this law guarantees health care to those exposed to those burn pits, and if they were to pass it guarantees tuition benefits and assistance to families for their children to go to school. that is the least we can do, it
2:49 am
seems to me. [applause] and, folks, there is more. republicans in congress led by south carolina senator lindsey graham already introduced legislation for a national ban on the right to choose. [booing] governor hochul is the first woman to serve as governor of new york. [cheers] and on tuesday night with your help she will be the first woman elected governor of new york. before the dobbs decision came down your governor took action to protect patients and doctors to be sure the right to choose for women in new york would be protected. and her opponent, meanwhile, believes there should be no exceptions even for rape or incest. none. his position is extreme. he has been down at washington
2:50 am
voting over and over again to defund planned parenthood. and look, here is the bottom line. if republicans gain control of congress and pass a nationwide ban on abortion, i will veto it. and if you give me two more democrats in the senate and we keep control of the house we will codify roe v. wade in january and make it the law of the land. governor hochul's opponent talks a good game on crime, but it is all talk. it is all talk. i cheered the judiciary committee for years. i introduced money for police officers at reforms, but let's look at the fact. on march 2021 as covid with any of the economy hard, mirrors all over the country said they were going to have to lay off thousands of cops because they did not have budget money coming
2:51 am
in, they did not have taxes coming in, so i came up with a plan called the american rescue plan for gave states and local governments money they needed to keep cops on the beat, school teachers their jobs, firefighters on their job, when again time to vote for this plan in congress, not a single republican voted for it. and they talk about the reason why we were able to keep your cops and firefighters and first responders is because of that legislation. that is the reason, and then they voted against it and they whine about how they are so tough republican leaders decided to play politics. governor hochul's opponent had a choice, to keep cops on the job or give to republican leaders. i will give you one guess to what he did. he caved, he voted against keeping cops on the beat, and intimate governor hochul and i were together in buffalo. i have visited every mass shooting site in the weeks after
2:52 am
that senseless, people mass shooting. we met with the families, spent four hours, you could feel the anger and disgust. it would've been easy to feel helpless, governor hochul decided to do something about it. less than one month after the shooting the governor signed a package of bills strengthening new york's gun laws. her opponent's plan for public safety is to put more guns on the street. he opposed red flag laws, which would take guns out of the hands of people who pose a danger to themselves and others. what kind of sense does that make? on the federal level we passed the most significant gun legislation in over 30 years, and zeldin opposed it. i am the guy that got the assault weapons ban for 10 years , and when we had that been mass shootings -- ban mass shooting
2:53 am
struck precipitously. i am coming back and getting that ban again. kathy's opponent is siding with the nra. he voted against the assault weapons ban, and as i point out all the time what comes out the muzzle of an assault weapon is five times faster than what comes out of the muzzle of another gun. it can peers kevlar vests. there are not a lot of deer wearing kevlar vest. if a politician will not stand up to his party leaders and to keep cops on the beat, if you will not stand up to the nra and get assault weapons off of the street, do you really think he is going to take and help your families keep safe? i tell you, he will not, but kathy will. folks, as i spoke about a few days ago, democracy is literally on the ballot. i have been making this case
2:54 am
since i ran. there are more than 300 republican candidates for state, local, and federal office who are election deniers, who say i did not win the election coming even though the hundreds of attempts to challenge that apple failed even in republican courts. kathy's opponent is one of those election deniers. these deniers are not only trying to deny the right to vote. they are trying to deny your right to have your vote counted. i am not joking. these election deniers, there are only two outcomes for an election. either they win or they were cheated. i am serious, think about it. you cannot only love the country when you win. and folks, these are the same guys, many of them, who said what happened on january 6 two
2:55 am
years ago, the people who engaged in that were patriots. [booing] all kidding aside, you are all students of history, most of you have not lived it but your students of it. can you think of any other time since the civil war where someone said that, where violence is condoned? look what happened. my friend, paul, nancy pelosi's husband -- look with the republican said, some of them making fun of it or making excuses. there has never been a time in my career when we have glorified violence based on a political basis. let me close with this. today, as i said earlier, is one of those inflection points.
2:56 am
it comes around every three or four or five generations. we all know it in our bones that our democracy is at risk. the latest was a 76% of american people worry about maintaining our democracy, and we know that this is your generation's moment to defendant, to preserve it, to choose it. and i want you to know we will meet this moment. remember, the power of america lies where it always does, with you. that is not hyperbole. with you. the pope. -- vote. everybody asked me why i'm so optimistic? and i'm not joking, i have been saying it for a year. because of you. you are the best educated, the least prejudiced, the most engaged, the most involved
2:57 am
iteration in american history. [cheers and applause] and you look at all of the polling data, if you all show up and vote, democracy is sustained. it is not a joke. this is not hyperbole, it is the second time. not a joke. it matters. it is in your hands. look, you are one of the reasons why as i said i have never been more optimistic about the future of this country. i look at america reasserting itself to lead the world in the 21st century. i have traveled this country and i have traveled the world before and since i have been president. i will tell you one quick story. i showed up in february after i got elected in january, got sworn in to the so-called g-7, the seven largest democratic economies in london, and i sat
2:58 am
down with the other heads of state, most of whom i had known before because that was my job as vice president and chairman, and i said america is about. and one of the leaders looked at me and said for how long? i am serious. think about it now. i think it was schulz of germany, i cannot remember for certain, but one of them said, mr. president, what would you think if you went to bed tonight here in england at this meeting. i woke up and found that a model of 1000 people wrote down the doors of the british parliament, went down the halls, ended up killing two police officers and ended up injuring scores to stop the outcome of an election. what would you think? ask yourself what you think
2:59 am
tomorrow morning if you turned on the television and found out that the bundestag had in fact been moved, they had been rated -- raided. what would you think? someone is saying i got it. we will get some help over here, do we have any folks out there who can help out? raise your hands. where he or she is. ok, come on. you have been standing a long time. we have any medical help here -- do we have any medical help your -- here? here they come. i do not think we can get through that way. >> [indiscernible]
3:00 am
hang on a minute. it will be ok. coming through both ways here. [applause] it is a lot of standing. ok. >> would daughter. -- we got here. pres. biden: you got her, ok. thank you. look, like i said. i look out at our country and i see how the rest of the world looks at us. they still look at us as a shining hope. they look to the united states. we have got to demonstrate who we are. i see a great nation, because we
3:01 am
are great people. we just have to remember who we are. we are the united states of america. [cheers] and there is nothing beyond our capacity if we work together some -- together, so vote. get out and vote. god bless you all and may god protect our troops. there is no more drilling. i have not performed any new drilling. >> [indiscernible] pres. biden: that was before i was president. we are trying to work on that and get that done. thank you. ♪
