Bernie Sanders unexpectedly released a fact-sheet Monday night explaining that he'd pay for his sweeping new government programs through new taxes and massive lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry, as well as by slashing spending on the military, among other methods.
The move sought to head off complaints from Republicans and some rival Democrats that his plans were economically unrealistic, especially after a head-turning CBS News interview in which the frustrated Vermont senator said he couldn't "rattle off to you every nickle and every dime" about his proposed expenditures.
He released his plan on his website just minutes after promising to do so during a CNN town hall.

[[massive lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry,]]
Awesome Bernie- force companies to raise the price of gas so high that only the elites can afford to go anywhere- that’ll Make America Stone Age Again- Gee, won’t that be grand?
I wish he would shut up until after Super Tuesday.
We need this guy to win the Dim nomination.
Now his future aint so bright.
Isnt that the deliberate plan? Spread the misery. 🤗
So, he needs, at least, 90-100 trillion dollars for his plans. Just raise taxes, that should cover it. (rolling eyes)
This guy Sanders is doing everything he can to burn through the #MSM firewall. They literally quarantined his kooky Kooba comments from 60 freaking Minutes, so what does he do? “Here’s how I’m paying for my next dacha, by screwing the American public.”
People will be urinating themselves with glee at that news.
the job losses from that one move would be epic.
.... gonna pay for something big by forced payment from an unwilling source by leveraging legal threats.
Que Homer Simpson line “it could haaapennn....”
The free stuff stops being free when you run out of OPM.
eventually he will run out of everyone else’s money and we are now venezuela
None of its going anywhere. This is just a dystopian nightmare on steroids.
Quite simply put, America cant afford Bernie Sanders.
Would be wonderful if we could vote ourselves everything we want. Unfortunately, the real world doesnt cater to our wishes.
Theres fantasy and theres reality and Bernie isnt a genie with a magic wand he can wave around to make our dreams a reality.
Hed tax America into bankruptcy long before America saw his free stuff. We dont want Santa Claus anywhere near the White House.
And this is good for the people... for our country????
How can such a platform even be presented!!!
It’s idiotic for anyone to vote for this...
bernie voters are without sense and definitely not thinking this vote to the end result!
Yeah. Let him hang himself a week later.
Rational people should run far, far away from him. Unfortunately, the Democrat Party is filled with brain-dead idiots.
No wonder Ragin Cajun James Carville, is genuinely frightened to death.
