Supporters of Bernie Sanders are fond of his platform because it advertises free healthcare, free college, and the redistribution of wealth. However, when the consequences and misleading nature of these propositions are revealed, they are not quite as appealing. First, free healthcare and free college will raise taxes for all, including those who do not want to go to college. This is because free college would have to be payed for somehow, and this somehow is taxes. Second, the redistribution of wealth would essentially make it so everyone gets the same amount of money in their income. A fast food worker would be making the same as someone who works at a harder job, such as a doctor or neurosurgeon. This is completely unfair because the lazy would making the same as the hardworking. In conclusion, there are several hidden aspects to Bernie’s platform that are not seen by many of his supporters.
