Although the candidates used buzz words like college affordability, marriage equality, and LGTBQ rights, eliciting immediate applause, Bernie delivered the most comprehensive vision for how millennials would benefit from a Sanders presidency. His focus on climate change as the world’s greatest threat to national security, making college tuition free, and stating that black lives matter in response to a video question proved to be significant moments when the 74-year old senator connected with a much younger demographic. He discussed his plan to make public college tuition-free, funded by a tax on Wall Street speculation, and how it was inspired by countries like Finland and Norway that have implemented universal higher education. His hope to reform college affordability is a pressing concern that amounts to $1.3 trillion in outstanding student loan debt for young Americans, causing recent graduates to question whether college is really worth the cost.
Maybe millennials should stop being indoctrinated in school and then they’ll see that Sanders is a moron.
