Experts not impressed with Sanders’ $16 trillion global warming plan – New York Times

    16 trillion dollars for “global warming”, and what, 30 trillion for government run health care, and how much for a “free” college education ? Oh that’s right it’s all FREE . What your not a citizen ? No problem ! it’s still FREE ! Grab your family, grab your friends, grab your neighbors, grab your local drug cartel’s friendly neighborhood chemist, scoot around, under, over, or straight through our borders, and move here ! Hell, if your willing to fib you could probably figure out a way for us (the tax payers of the State of Vermont) to give you $10,000 to locate in Vermont ! Sweet ! Boy it’s a good thing that I’m a brazillionaire, so I can afford all the new higher taxes this will cost. Oh, I forgot, IT’S FREE!!!!!
