I don't know about you guys, but I actually measured every dollar I earned/spent last year.

Then I took all of my expenses and categorized them into their tax rates.

Add it all up, and include mandatory fees (health insurance, car insurance, mortgage insurance, things I can't get away without paying...) and it comes to about 50% of my pre-tax income

I can't afford much more, sooner or later I'll be too broke to tread water.

Why worry about college, when a trade school as they are called here, are way cheaper? A local county technical institute (vocational school) depending on the proghram is a quarter of the the cost and sometimes a quarter of the time (vs a bachelors). You can push these people out and make them middle class contributing "taxpayers" faster than what a college ever could with whatever degree they crap out.

What seems clear to me is that you know far more than you claim. You plead ignorance but have plenty of answers when confronted with the reality of what a Sanders utopia actually means.

Perestroika is essentially what Bernie is offering. How did that work out?

Don't play coy millennial.

If this is really of interest to you, you might want to take a sociological theory class. It gives a good basis for the answers you seek. But to answer your question, its all about capitalism. We live in a capitalist society. And thus why states or government can provide the cheapest medical, education, and transportation.

No, he's offering something more along the lines of the Nordic model.

But in the Nordic model everyone pays taxes. So everybody no matter how little is paying into the system. Bernie conveniently leaves that part out.
