Who says Bernie Sanders can't win? If he keeps coming up with simple mind blowing ideas like he did on CNN the other day , he is going to win a lot of votes! Simple yes, mind blowing, only if you are an elite pundit like Wolf Blitzer who apparently doesn't get out much... More after the psychedlic squiggly.....
On a May 19 CNN broadcast with Blitzer, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders unveiled a plan to eliminate college tuition by taxing Wall Street speculation.
Sounds pretty simple and straight forward doesn't it? Yet, Blitzer just couldn't wrap his mind around it..... watch......https://www.youtube.com/...
Blitzer asked time and again, " you mean you are going to tax Wall Street? as if he just heard that aliens had landed on the White House lawn. Yes Sanders replied over and over again. A small tax on transference of money that will in all likelihood raise about 300 billion dollars, more than enough to keep our college grads from starting out life deep in debt.
I confess I don't know much about Wall Street operations ( I just know they are crooks)
but maybe another Kossack who knows about this can explain it. I just know that it is a simple plan, and apparently would work.
It is so refreshing to hear a politician talk directly about how he or she would fix a problem. It is apparently so rare that it caught Wolf Blitzer off guard. Thank God we have Bernie in the race! He is going to bring a breath of fresh air into the campaign that with Bush and Clinton on the horizon, so desperately needs it!
By the way, who says he can't win??
