She's been working for the public most of her life.

That may be in her early years, but now she's catering to the banks. Any politician that's already a millionaire who receives 250,000 for wall street
speaking fees, and whose campaign is financed by millions of dollars from corporations, certainly is self-serving and is definitely not working for
the public's interest. If her $250 thousand speeches actually showed any concern for the public or the poor why didn't she release them? It would
only have helped her campaign! There's a lot of celebrities and well known people who don't receive anything near the amount she got for speeches.
Don't fool yourself, these bankers are getting something in return for those speaking fees. Lets also not ignore the obscene amount of money she
charged for her campaign fundraising dinners! You can bet your last dollar there were no poor or average struggling Americans present at that dinner!
Free college will bankrupt the nation.
...and enormous student debt and defaults won't bankrupt the nation? Bernie wants corporations to finance education in this country. They're the
ones who benefit from a competent and technically trained public! If education can be free in France and Germany, I'm sure the leader of the free
world can also put educating it's public as a number one priority. Without an educated and competent work force, we'll become a 3rd world nation.
Raising taxes is miniscule compared to paying monthly school loans of $250 - $700 dollars a month! It's the same thing with health care. Countries
who have free health care, citizens are paying higher taxes but they certainly don't pay office co-pays of $50 or more per office visit, and pay
insurance premiums of $200 - $800 a month!
Lets stop acting like Bernie is giving away the store. He's eliminating huge monthly student loans and premium healthcare payments with an increase
in taxes which in the end will benefit everyone. Insurance companies will no longer over rule your doctor, or decide what they are willing to pay
for. It's morally wrong to put a dollar amount on saving a life. It's also a basic human right to provide care for your fellow man.
Education and healthcare shouldn't only be for the rich.
