Social Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders has engaged the insatiable greed of the Democrat base for ‘Free Stuff from the Government’ including ‘free’ college, ‘free’ health care, and a vast expansion of welfare.
‘How much would all of this cost to implement?’ might you ask if you’re a racist homophobic warmongering theocrat who supports rape-culture. Oh, not so much, only about double the current national debt.
In all, he backs at least $18 trillion in new spending over a decade, according to a tally by The Wall Street Journal, a sum that alarms conservatives and gives even many Democrats pause. Mr. Sanders sees the money as going to essential government services at a time of increasing strain on the middle class.
