BATTLE OF THE FREEBIES: Bernie proposes free college, Warren wants limited free college


Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced a bill last week, which would abolish tuition and fees at public four-year colleges and universities for students from households making $125,000 or less per year, and would make community college tuition-free for students from all income levels.

Sen. Warren wants free tuition as well is proposing free college and plans to eliminate student debt.

Washington Examiner reports  Warren’s proposal was somewhat limited — offering debt cancellation of up to $50,000 to more than 42 million people, or 95% of those with debt. She said that will completely wipe out debt for 75% of borrowers with student loans.

Sanders, however, wants to eliminate 100% of debt, both public and private, including graduate school. That means people with advanced degrees, from upper middle class families, with six-figure salaries, would benefit from the plan. Working doctors and lawyers would be getting a massive government handout under this proposal.

The big question is who will pay for it.

Cory Booker want to give Blacks money for slavery reparations tweeting: “Since slavery in this country, we have had overt policies fueled by white supremacy and racism that have oppressed African-Americans economically for generations.”
