BAD BUSINESS: Home Depot Founders Say Bernie Sanders is the ‘Enemy of Every Entrepreneur’ in America
Home Depot founders Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone spoke with Fox Business this week; saying Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is the biggest “enemy of every entrepreneur” in the United States.
“Do you get annoyed when you have big old targets, not specifically on you, but that the rich, all these Democratic candidates, to a man and woman, they single out guys like you as, this is what has happened to capitalism. Unfair,” asked host Neil Cavuto.
“Bernie Sanders is out today with a plan that will tax Wall Street trades pennies on the dollar. But it’s a start to pay for, among other things, college debt and maybe free college down the road,” he added.
“Well, look, don’t bring up Bernie Sanders, because that’s a red flag in front of me, because he’s the enemy of every entrepreneur that’s ever going to be born in this country and has been born in the past,” said Marcus. “Our kids today don’t learn Western civilization. They don’t learn history. History repeats itself. You see things happening over and over again.”

Sanders continued his calls for free public college and the elimination of student debt Monday; asking his fellow Americans if they were “truly free to pursue their dreams.”
“Are you truly free if you graduate hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt? Are you free if you cannot pursue your dream because you don’t make enough to cover your student loan payments? We will #CancelStudentDebt because there is no freedom without economic freedom,” asked Sanders on social media.

Sanders unveiled his latest proposal Monday to cancel the nation’s entire student loan debt; a move economists say will cost more than $1.6 trillion for American taxpayers.
“Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will propose on Monday eliminating all $1.6 trillion of student debt held in the United States, a significant escalation of the policy fight in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary two days before the candidates’ first debate in Miami,” reports the Stamford Advocate.
“Sanders is proposing that the federal government pay to wipe clean the student debt held by 45 million Americans – including all private and graduate school debt – as part of a package that also would make public universities, community colleges and trade schools tuition-free,” adds the newspaper.
Sanders confirmed last week that his socialized health care proposal will “absolutely” provide coverage to every single illegal immigrant in the United States.
“We will organize the American people around the concept that all people in this country have the right to health care, and at the end of the day, we are going to win that struggle,” said Sanders during a recent speech.
“Senator, would you include the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America?” asked the moderator.
“Absolutely. When I talk about health care being a human right, the last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings,” he fired-back.
