So Bernie wants all of us who, paid for our own education to now pay for everyone else’s?

Is that correct?

Update:

I had loans which I paid off with interest as I agreed to. I most certainly wasn’t and am not rich.

    Well yes. He also wants those who don’t go to pay for college to pay for those who do. He’s a socialist. He promotes high taxes.

    A socialist think its okay to proposes a massive individual income tax increase. Good luck on that, look what happened to Francois Hollande

    We already pay for everyone else's K-12 education via our tax dollars. Why is college such a big leap for you?

    Yeah, kind of. I mean, it sucks that we grew up during the time where the government wasn't interested in having a college educated populace, but that's not the fault of younger people.

    Whether you think that people should have to pay for their own education or not, do realize that you benefit from living in an educated society. More education means less crime, more innovation, better infrastructure, more and better jobs, and more social amenities.

    Importantly, college educated people earn a significantly higher salary on average, which means that they pay more in sales taxes and income taxes. Over a working lifetime, this increased amount could actually pay for the education which that person received. In that way, people that benefit from Bernie's program won't get college "for free," it just means you and I will pay for our own education twice.

    What's wrong with that? A better-educated populace means we're all better off. And, better educated people don't vote for Republicans. It's win-win. NEWS FLASH: That's why Asian nations are kicking our intellectual bee-hinds; they all pay to educate their people and upgrade their skills as the market demands.

    As those of us with half a brain or more say, "Think education is expensive? Try ignorance." As you Trump toadies prove every single day.
