Bernie or no Bernie, The message is pretty clear and the united states i the only FIRST WORLD country to not have affordable and universal healthcare, College tuition so on and so forth. What do you have to show for the lack of it? A trillion dollar investment in a new type of military aircraft and bases that do fuck all anyways because we have such military spending and military tech we could be in fucking the middle east without them in less than eight hours m8. Further addendum. Again, Just because you get a degree doesn't mean you're going to get a job in the field you studied in at once. Then it goes towards increasing the national debt and then you have some loans that have interest on them ontop of that and the next thing you know you're working double overtime in some shitty casino while you're studying so you can get the upper hand in paying the debt off. This "free shit" as you say is paid for by the tax payers as a significant lower price that if it were to be out of pocket right at the front counter. It also prevents the vultures that are insurance agencies from exploiting people who manage to even get insurance, never-mind private companies that give it to their workers and have to juggle deals and what not. Especially local companies. Honest question, Do you like the Affordable Health Care Act?
