Oh, that Bernie Sanders – thanks to his dopey thinking, he is our time's ultimate reverse indicator. His latest scheme is a guaranteed job for everyone that is wildly impractical. This is coming at a time when it is now dawning on economists and market-watchers the United States is entering a multi-decade labor shortage – the kind that will drive up wages for low-income minorities and others who most badly need to be in the workforce on a regular basis. That most American of all industries, fast food, is even facing an existential employment crisis thanks to this permanent worker shortage.
This new economic reality will really hit home if Trump is successful in reducing marginal skill immigration, especially the illegal kind, that competes against native-born, entry-level workers and limits their opportunities, as Harvard's George Borjas has studied for years.
President Trump's policies of low corporate income tax rates are also going to help keep things humming along, something Ronald Reagan long advocated, especially as this tax most hurts domestic manufacturers.
This is not the first time Bernie has been spectacularly wrongheaded. I wrote a few years ago about how unnecessary his free college plan had become. Private organizations have already taken the lead, and the cost problem of college is being successfully addressed. We may even see the last of crazy professors like Randa Jarrar. Much as the energy crisis was ended by the frackers , we are getting to nearly free college, all no thanks to the feds.
Bernie, if nothing else, is an extreme example of how little our leaders in Washington are able to think, grow and take in new information. His world has not changed at all since his 1960s days goofing off at a hippie commune.

The insanity and stupidity of radical Marxist left on parade for all to see. Keep talking Bernie — and be reminded that the USA is NOT A SOCIALIST COUNTRY and will never be. No matter what it takes to prevent it.
It is a good thing so many are paying taxes, you can put more people on guberment rolls.
the lovable grandpa Bernie routine makes me sick

“Hey little girl.... You want some free college?”
Democrats have chosen to implement socialism in a country where capitalism is chugging right along.
But they are not jobs obtained because government makes them available!
It’s like how private charity is insufficient, not because government welfare is sufficient but because it isn’t provided by the government and paid for by force.
Voluntary participation is against progressivism.
There are over 50,000 truck driver jobs open in the US today - over 500,000 warehouse jobs - thousands of equipment mechanics and maintenance jobs open today across the country. But the word is work - you need to show up on time, every day and do your job. These are not the free hand outs Bernie and his followers are looking for.
What Bernie is really saying is “paychecks for everyone”. They’d just as soon do without the jobs if it involves showing up someplace on time and passing pee tests.
Here is a guy who never took a job until he was elected mayor of Burlington VT in 1981 by getting 10 more votes than the Democrat candidate in a 3-way race. Unemployment was at about 3% the Burlington area in those days, so it was not because there were no jobs to be had, it was because his royal Marxist Highness was too special and Marxist to take a job, even though he had a young son to support.
Now he wants to hand out Gubmint make-work jobs to deadbeats, riffraff, and n’er-do-wells on your dime. Do you suppose a guy who has never had a real job in his life has any idea of the true value of work or money? If you really think so, I have a bridge in New York to sell you, too.
Bernie Sanders is Karl Marx’s ugly stepson. He is the new kind of Marxist Democrat, where Marxist is euphemized as “progressive.”
Look America is running a MASSIVE trade deficit with China.
$375,000,000,000 last year.
That means America bought $375,000,000,000 of stuff from China, not from America.
This is NOT a great economy. Trump really does not need us all to be cheering him, on this issue.
America needs to be for America once again.
