Rep. Dan Crenshaw slammed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders Tuesday for “buying off” young voters with “impossible” federal spending levels; saying his generation “knows better” than to believe false socialist promises.
“Maybe because my generation realizes Sanders’ policies are a false promise backed by impossible federal spending levels… Can’t buy off young people with ‘free’ everything. We know better,” posted Crenshaw on social media.

Crenshaw’s comments were referencing new polling that shows Sanders’ support among millennial voters plunging in recent weeks.
The self-described Democratic socialist has proposed a series of new programs on the campaign trail including debt forgiveness, Medicare for All, tuition-free college, universal child care, a federal jobs program, the ‘Green New Deal’, and more.
Leading economists place the price-tag for Sanders’ policies at more than $20,000 per US taxpayer.
“Maya MacGuineas, the president of independent and bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, warned on ‘Fox and Friends’ Tuesday morning that Bernie Sanders’ proposed policies could cost $20,000 per taxpayer,” reports Fox News.
“I don’t know whether they plan to finance all of that or add that to the very large national debt, but the costs are certainly high. I know trillion is kind of hard to get your arms around. But when you bring it down per taxpayer, we are talking more than $20,000 increase in taxes,” said the group’s leader.
“If you look at healthcare, free tuition, family leave, child care – those proposals will all have a price tag of over $20,000 per taxpayer,” MacGuineas added.
Sanders refused to accept the study that showed his “Medicare for all” program would cost US taxpayers over $32 trillion; releasing a video that claims universal healthcare would actually save $2 trillion over ten years.
CRENSHAW RESPONDS: Rep. Crenshaw SLAMS Ilhan Omar For Accusing Him of ‘Inciting’ Violence
Rep. Dan Crenshaw issued a fiery response to Ilhan Omar’s vicious comments Wednesday after she accused the Texas lawmaker of “inciting” violence against the controversial Congresswoman.
“1. I never called you un-American.
2. I did not incite any violence against you.
3. You described an act of terrorism on American soil that killed thousands of innocent lives as ‘some people did something.’ It’s still unbelievable, as is your response here,” tweeted Crenshaw.
Omar found herself in hot-water -yet again- this week after footage surfaced of her referring to the devastating 9/11 terror attacks as “some people” who “did something.”
CRENSHAW UNLEASHED: Dan Crenshaw RIPS Dems Upset Trump ‘NOT THE VILLAIN’ in Russia Probe
Rep. Dan Crenshaw slammed Congressional Democrats this week for their unhinged behavior regarding Mueller’s final report; saying all Americans should celebrate that the President “did not collude” with foreign officials during the 2016 race for the White House.
“If you’re upset that the President is NOT the villain you wanted him to be, you’re missing the point,” tweeted Crenshaw. “Our President did not collude nor obstruct. That’s a good thing.”
