Senator Elizabeth Warren delivered her first nationally televised town hall event in Mississippi Monday night; offering a series of proposals that the nation’s top economists predict will cost US taxpayers over $100 trillion.
Warren was speaking with supporters when she offered her series of solutions for the nation’s most pressing problems; promising free healthcare, universal childcare, debt-free college tuition, reparations, the Green New Deal, and more.
“That’s how we build a future. And I’ll add one little piece to it and say when you take a look at the Green New Deal, understand this is about building the infrastructure for the 21st century, for a sustainable world,” Warren claimed.
“I believe it’s time to start the national, full-blown conversation about reparations,” Warren added: “ignoring the problem is not working.”

FREE MONEY! Sen. Warren Calls for Free College, Cancellation of Student Debt, Will Cost $1.25 TRILLION
Senator Elizabeth Warren outlined her plan Monday to offer free college tuition to all Americans while forgiving pre-existing student loan debt; admitting the expensive proposal would likely cost $1.25 trillion over the next decade.
“We got into this crisis because state governments and the federal government decided that instead of treating higher education like our public school system — free and accessible to all Americans — they’d rather cut taxes for billionaires and giant corporations and offload the cost of higher education onto students and their families,” writes Warren.
“Experts estimate my debt cancellation plan creates a one-time cost to the government of $640 billion. The Universal Free College program brings the total cost of the program to roughly $1.25 trillion over ten years,” she adds.
Warren’s proposal would provide cost-free tuition for public colleges and would cancel up to $50,000 in student loan debt for Americans earning under $100,000 per year.
