The communists know how to get their country at "full employment". They prohibit machines that take eliminate jobs of humans. Why allow a robot when there are 10 people that need a job?? How about making shovels illegal and forcing everyone to use a spoon??? That will create more jobs.

If the US tried that, China would launch an invasion the next day to get something for their money from the fire sale.

Just came here to say that I don't care what Sanders stands for, I don't want him to win.

This isnt the 1950s anymore where a high school education was enough to do well. Its 2016 and a college education is the equivalent of high school in the past. And high school is fully funded by the taxpayer.

what should be done is promoting trade schools because not everyone is college material. I would hope that one of the criteria of a free collage education is that you have to obtain a marketable degree and not graduate with worthless degrees.

But he does think middle-class taxes would rise if his universal health plan is adopted but the cost of those tax increases would be more than offset by obviation of insurance premiums.
You completely ignored the question,

WHERE WILL THAT MONEY COME FROM?

You arent raising taxes $1.5 trillion a year, no way in hell..

taxing the rich, doesnt come close since they dont even have that much wealth, let alone make it yearly...

stop and think before you post and promote such stupid ideologies.

Exactly. Sharpton? That's who Sanders reaches out to to get minorities on board? How f*cking old school racist is that?!?

haha

Bernie Sanders Momentum Grows After Strong Performance At CNN New Hampshire Town Hall | Politicus USA

Sanders was asked by an audience member if he was going to raise taxes on the middle-class. Sanders explained his comprehensive health care plan that would raise taxes by $500 but save $5,000 in healthcare costs. The audience member responded that he would be happy to pay more taxes if it would lower his health insurance premiums.

You'll still defend and promote him, while attacking others for pointing out his proposed solutions are completely ridiculous..

Is that why we have record numbers, living in poverty?

Bull ****.. PELL GRANTS, scholarships, and even the military provides college educational costs paid for.
