The Cost of “Free Stuff”

By: Suzanne Hamner – – July 31, 2019

Another Democratic Party presidential nominee debate has ended among the cookie-cutter contenders offering “free stuff”.  Again, unable to sit through the lies, deception and outright disdain for the majority of Americans, others suffered through to fill the internet alternative news pages full of the CNN (Corruption News Network) aired liededis-fest (lies, deception, disdain).  But, one thing can be said for the candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, they have tapped into the one thing that most Americans love – free stuff, in order to “buy” votes without ever being questioned on the cost or who is going to pay.

Let’s be honest here – who doesn’t love free stuff?  The answer is none;  only there is nothing in this material world that is ever free.  Do you want free shipping on items?  Yes.  Well then, you have to spend the required amount in order to get it, which that required amount is more than what you would normally spend plus the added shipping.  Gotcha!  Do you want this wonderful four-piece tote bag set?  Yes;  then, you must spend a minimum amount to get it using a code and forego free shipping.  Again, gotcha!  Either way, you end up paying for something that is billed as “free”.

The same goes with these Democrat hacks offering their “freebies” to any and everyone inside the borders of the united States of America.  But, the difference is that none of the candidates ever places a price tag to their “vision”, which ends up dancing around the eyeballs of millions of gullible Americans like sugar plums dancing in the heads of children at Christmas time.  Fortunately, John Stossel and his team calculated the costs of these “federal freebies” offered by the candidates during the CNN liededis-fest.  And, the numbers aren’t pretty.

WND reports:

Never before have presidential candidates offered voters so much “free” stuff.

Kamala Harris wants you to “collect up to $500 a month.”

Elizabeth Warren says, “We need to go tenfold in our research and development in green energy.”

No one has tracked the cost of all of the promises. So my video team did!

Who will spend the most?

Here are the new spending proposals from the five most popular (according to candidates.

In my latest video, we break it down by category, education spending first:

Joe Biden wants to “triple the amount of money we spend for Title I schools” ($32 billion) create “universal pre-K” ($26 billion), provide “free community college” ($6 billion per year) and double the number of psychologists and social workers in schools ($14 billion) – $78 billion total.

That’s a lot, but much less than what Kamala Harris would spend.

She too wants to “make community college free” ($6 billion), but she’d add debt-free “four-year public college” ($80.1 billion), “increase government’s investment in child care” dramatically ($60 billion) and “give the average public school teacher a $13,000 raise” ($31.5 billion) for a total of $177 billion.

Pete Buttigieg rarely says what his proposals would cost, but he at least seems to want to spend less than Harris.

He touts “free college for low- and middle-income students” and would give teachers more money. Assuming his plan is like Harris’, that brings his education total to $87 billion.

Elizabeth Warren would spend much more.

“You’ll be debt-free!” she tells students. Taxpayers, unfortunately, will be deeper in debt, since she would “forgive” most existing student debt and make public college tuition free ($125 billion).

She also wants a “Universal Child Care and Early Learning Act” ($70 billion).

These big-ticket items put her in first place so far.

But wait! Bernie Sanders would spend even more.

He’d completely “eliminate student debt,” “make public colleges and universities tuition-free” and provide universal day care and pre-K. That totals $280 billion, so Sanders “wins” in education spending.
