Sanders, other Dems want to make college free

One thing you will hear at the Democratic debates tonight and tomorrow is the subject of free college tuition.

Bernie Sanders wants to cancel $1.6 trillion in college loan debt. Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that too. Merrill Matthews with the Institute for Policy Innovation says it's a ploy to get voters.

“It is a blatant attempt to get voters on their side,” Matthews said.

Bernie wants Wall Street to pay for all of this with taxes, but Matthews says Bernie made a miscalculation.

“There’s just not enough money for them to pay for this. Bernie is probably on the low side in his estimates,” Matthews stated.

Bernie's plans may sit well with his supporters, but not people like Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, who spoke out on Fox Business Network earlier this week.

"[Bernie Sanders] is the enemy of every entrepreneur that's ever going to be born in the country and has been born in the past," Marcus said.

Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone agreed, saying “if the people in America today ... if they want to know what the future holds for them following Bernie Sanders, go to Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, Eastern Europe. Guess what? It doesn't work."
