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?

Watch: Pelosi Gloats As She Fist Bumps Bill Maher, Says Trump Is Now ‘Impeached Forever’

Is she still feeling ‘somber?’

The goal of impeaching President Trump was never to kick him out of office. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives knew from the start that POTUS would be acquitted in the Senate. It’s only a matter of time. The whole point was to stain his record because they have nothing else to go on. The economy is great. Unemployment is in the basement. Jobs are abundant. Enemies fear America. Like I said, they have nothing. Check out Pelosi on Bill Maher, via The Blaze: In the days leading up to the House of Representatives passing the articles of impeachment against President Trump, Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi told members of her party to appear “solemn” during proceedings. “Don’t cheer, keep it solemn,” Pelosi said, according to a swing-district Democrat. One month later, and the appearances of solemnity appears to have gone out the window.

The LSU Tigers are fresh off a college football national championship after defeating Clemson on January 13. Unlike other teams, collegiate or professional, LSU didn’t shun President Trump in order to gain some credit with far-left loons in the media. The team showed up to the White House and created a memory that will last forever. On top of that, a video of some of the players dancing in the Oval Office has since gone viral.

From Fox News: On Friday the players danced in suits and ties — joined by the woman, whose daughter later identified her on Twitter as her mother, Gemi Bordelon, wife of former LSU Tiger offensive tackle Ben Bordelon, who went on to play for the NFL’s San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers in 1997, Heavy and WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge reported. The Bordelons joined the team on the White House visit because they’re close with members of the Louisiana congressional delegation, WBRZ reported.
