Bernie (and unfortunately, the entire left) have created this boogeyman ("the rich"). Promise free stuff and the boogeyman will pay for it! Win/Win!

It takes 10 seconds of critical thinking to realize that the free stuff he (and all Dem candidates) is proposing are way too massive for the "rich" to pay for. It would absolutely be paid for by the middle class. In some fashion or another.

If the left wants to defeat Trump and return to normalcy, like they claim, maybe think about running a centrist who works for middle class Americans?

Why didnít you guys run a centrist that cares about middle class Americans? Yeah...you first! How about that?

Then you can tell us what to do.

The rich kid didnít take loans, genius!

You found the 6 trillion for Iraq and Afghanistan that you have no complaints about, so Bernie can find the money in the same place...no need for you to complain about that either.

Complete BS. If the student on a scholarship is not performing they risk losing the scholarship as hardly anyone gets a scholarship in advance for all years.

There is an incentive to perform. No incentives will make people not work for things, lazy and will performance go down.

No simple, fail just one course and get kicked out. That's totally reasonable and will still motivate

OH, so past screw ups validate making future mistakes? Sounds reasonable.

It didn't exist then, it doesnt exist today, it wont exist if Bernie gets elected.

Stop ALL of the ridiculous wasteful spending.

In most European and Asian countries, college is free or very affordable.
However, these countries have very competitive admissions too. Those who are not college materials can be excluded in early years.
