ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders proposed plans to put Americans to work and in school during a campaign stop in Baltimore, Maryland on Tuesday (December 8). When asked about the militant group Islamic State, which he called ISIS, Sanders said the group is "a huge national problem," which the country needs to deal with. But he said the U.S. also needs to deal with the huge unemployment rate in poor communities. He called for changing trade policies so that U.S. companies are encouraged to invest in the U.S. rather than in China. He also called for eliminating tuition for post-secondary education. Sanders is Hillary Clinton's main rival for the party's presidential nomination for the November 2016 election, and his positions have pressured the former secretary of state to move more to the left on many issues.
