Especially when most of them benefited from the same back when they were young?
The best reason for choosing Bernie over Hillary on Tuesday is the arrogant and dismissive behavior of her so-called surrogates and longtime political supporters, many of whom on TV are also her “superdelegates.”
Sanders is 100 percent correct about the need to eliminate public college tuition. That any Democrat would take umbrage at such an idea to the point of expressing mockery and ridicule at the guy only proves how morally bankrupt this party has become. We need no further example that it’s clearly time for a change.
Sanders is also right about how “rich people” should benefit from free college tuition as well, something that has many Hillary supporters tied up in knots of phony self-righteousness, as if Sanders is being a clear idiot about the idea. Not only are the rich paying into the same pot, but if the more affluent population in this country aren’t allowed to have some kind of skin in the game then they’re not going to support the effort. Quite the opposite. FDR realized this reality back when he refused to exclude the super-affluent from Social Security consideration.
We don’t means-test K-12 either, and for the same good reason. Think we should, Dems? So many of you like charter schools, so who knows…
So send a message on Tuesday morning: make it Bernie over Hillary. It’ll be good for her and good for the country. These mainstream Dems have blown it. If Bernie weren’t in the race she’d be going out of her way to deny that she was a “liberal.”
