I really don't understand how people think Bernie is going to pull this off. He gets lambasted by the media 24/7, and says a whole lot of shit that sounds completely unfeasible. As per usual, I anticipate he will pull the money he needs out of his own ass while being already $21 trillion in debt. https://www.usdebtclock.org
His “free” plans for America involve: $35 trillion for healthcare, $16 trillion for climate change, $1.5 trillion for student loan debt, $2.5 trillion for housing.
Where the fuck is $55 trillion dollars just magically going to appear from? He certainly can't print that much without fucking the global economy and sending us all into a recession. Military spending in total is $600 billion per year, equaling $6 trillion over a decade, even though completely liquidating our military puts ourselves at risk from foreign invasion. Wall Street speculation tax would generate $400 billion over ten years according to independent analysis from tax policy center. Wealthy income (top 1%) tax at a rate of 70% would raise about $700 billion over ten years according to the Washington Post.
Assuming we eliminate our military, and jack up taxes on WS speculation and the wealthy, that provides an estimated total revenue of $7 trillion over a decade. That leaves $50 trillion still to be paid for in order to implement those policies.
At this rate the United States will tank like Greece by 2025-2030.
