New Study Confirms Warren’s Free College Plan Would Leave Vast Majority Far Worse Off

It’s not a difficult concept to grasp.

If you’re a rational person, you understand that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. If you’re a Democrat, you demand that everything be free and paid for by the government. Of course, you’d be forgetting that free isn’t free when taxes start to rise. It’s not a difficult concept to grasp.

2020 Democrat presidential candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders would love to make college free, but all it would do is hurt workaday Americans. Go figure. From Free Beacon:

The “free” college plans touted by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and other Democratic presidential hopefuls will require radical tax hikes and leave 86 percent of American households worse off, a recent study found.

Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) often promise tuition-free higher education and student debt cancellation on the campaign trail. However, a National Bureau of Economic Research study conducted by University of Wisconsin researchers found that free college translates to a hollowed-out higher education system that leaves many Americans worse off.

Researchers simulated two scenarios: one in which the federal government forces states to adopt tuition-free public colleges and another in which it provides subsidies to encourage states to do so. They calculated how each plan would affect the welfare of American households. The welfare function was derived from, among other things, the positive and negative impacts of higher tax rates and lower education costs.

It’s as if Warren and her ilk are trying to secretly get President Trump re-elected. If that’s not the goal, then they are acting extremely ignorant. Which is more likely.

Here’s the deal…

Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren says Americans should have their hard-earned tax dollars go to pay for prison inmates to go through transgender surgery

Warren says the locked-up criminals are “entitled” to it

When you silence your opponents, you’re a fascist. For some reason, refuse to acknowledge that this is what they have become.

Warren drove that point home in less than 140 characters.

And it’s pretty bad.

LOOK:

The attacks against @KamalaHarris are racist and ugly. We all have an obligation to speak out and say so. And it’s within the power and obligation of tech companies to stop these vile lies dead in their tracks.

Here’s the only reaction necessary:

By this logic Trump should get everyone who promoted Russiagate banned

From Daily Wire:

NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Warren the question, and, when she dodged answering it, he pressed her about it again.

Todd asked, “You didn’t address, do you think the federal government needs to go and figure out a way to get the guns?

Unearthed Clip Shows Joe Biden Praising Group That Displays Confederate Flag [Watch]

What say you now, Joe?

The past always comes back to bite Democrats right in the back side. Whether talking about slavery or racism or their rhetoric on impeaching Clinton vs. impeaching Trump, it’s quite comical how an entire party can change views at the drop of a hat. 2019 Joe Biden might have a few words to say to 1993 Joe Biden about the Confederate Flag, something Democrats claim to hate. From Daily Wire: Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden praised a pro-confederacy group “who continue to display the Confederate flag” as “fine people” in newly resurfaced video highlighted by the Trump campaign. The video is significant in large part due to the number of times that Biden has engaged in smearing President Donald Trump with the patently false claim that the president said white supremacists and neo-Nazis were “very fine people” in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy in 2017. WATCH: Joe Biden called the United Daughters Of The Confederacy “an organization made up of many fine people who continue to display the Confederate flag.” https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1203753557444444160?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203753557444444160&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-biden-praises-group-who-display-the-confederate-flag-as-fine-people-in-resurfaced-video Back in 2014, when Biden was still vice president, he spoke at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. He said illegal aliens are American citizens. No joke. Biden: “You know, 11 million people live in the shadows. I believe they’re already American citizens. These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAH3hc-_arM#action=share Would Democrats be all in favor of illegal immigration if the majority of illegals voted Republican? NOPE! Biden didn’t vote in favor of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in 2011. What’s funny is 44 cared so little about Joe’s opinion that he went forward with the plan anyway. Listen to…

But they let other organizations share New Zealand & El Paso shooter’s manifestos…

Twitter has a funny way of justifying what can and cannot be censored – or outright banned – from their platform. For example, a conservative can say something most people wouldn’t look twice at and find themselves in trouble, while a liberal can call for people to be killed and Twitter will look the other way. How does that make sense? Could it be that the social media outlet leans left? It’s probably a decent bet! Check out what just happened to Fox News host, Pete Hegseth, a big supporter of President Trump – from Daily Mail: Fox and Friends host Pete Hegseth said he was banned from Twitter Saturday after he shared an anti-American manifesto said to have been written by Pensacola shooter Mohammed Alshamrani. The TV journalist, 39, posted screenshots Sunday which showed his tweet, calling the actions of the gunman ‘Islamist terror’, was ‘no longer available’. He followed up with a picture of his appeal regarding the decision. Continued: Saudi military student Alshamrani, 21, killed three people and injured 12 when he opened fire at Navy Station Pensacola on Friday.
