AS DEMOCRATIC presidential candidates prepared for their first debate Wednesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) unveiled a sweeping plan to buy 45 million votes with your money.
Sanders is using tax money to bail out college graduates who spent too much money on their worthless college degrees.
Funded by $2.4 trillion in taxes on financial transactions over 10 years, Mr. Sanders’s plan would accompany another proposal to guarantee tuition-free public colleges and trade schools.
This goes well beyond the already ambitious vote-buying plan of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) — which may be no coincidence. Mr. Sanders has been losing ground to her in the polls and needs to rekindle voter interest.
Alas, despite its progressive packaging, Mr. Sanders’s proposal is a formula for a massive upward redistribution of your money and most people won’t ignore that.
