Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders refused to disclose how his potential administration would finance his trillion-dollar entitlement programs Sunday night; saying he can’t “rattle off every nickel and every dime.”
“I think it’s about $30 trillion,” said Sanders when asked by 60 Minutes’ Anderson Cooper how he would finance his government giveaways.
“But that’s just for Medicare for All,” fired-back Cooper. “Do you have a price tag for all of these things?”
Here’s your front runner Democrats.
He has no idea how much his proposals will cost but somehow knows exactly how to pay for them.
Good luck with that.

“No I don’t. No… I can’t -you know- rattle off to you every nickel and every dime. We have options out there that will pay for it,” said Sanders.

BERNIE SANDERS: America Is ‘Not Great’ in ‘Some Very Significant Ways’
The political fallout from Bernie Sanders’ recent interview with 60 Minutes continued Monday after the far-left Senator said the United States is “not great” in some “very significant ways.”
“Your stump speech -your critics say- sounds like nothing works in America and it hasn’t for generations. Is America great?” asked Anderson Cooper.
“In many ways we are. In some ways, some very significant ways, we are not. We’re not great when half of our people are living paycheck to paycheck. When 500,000 people are going to be sleeping out on the streets, including 30,000 veterans,” said Sanders.

“Were you surprised by how unprepared he seemed for some very basic obvious questions at a debate in Nevada?” asked Cooper.
“Yes, I was. I was. And– and– and, you know– and if that’s what happened in a Democratic debate, you know, I– I think it’s quite likely that Trump will chew him up and spit him out,” said Sanders.

“I am worried about an unprecedented amount of money being spent on a campaign. And– you know, we’ve never seen anything like this in American history. And I just think though that the American people will rebel against this type of oligarchic movement. We are a democracy. One person, one vote. Not a guy worth $60 billion buying an election,” he added.
