I am a young lady who recently graduated from college and I must say I don’t understand why people don’t like Sanders, unless they are wealthy. If one looks around at the economy and how nothing is stays stable while the price of everything skyrocket and wages are stagnate why wouldn’t you be in favor of bigger government to stabilize things instead of having wild market swings, over priced college, healthcare that breaks a person up and housing that is beyond unaffordable. I just recently landed a job and I will never be able to buy even a small apartment as the prices have went up near 300% in the area since I started college.
I will never be able to afford it and there is no career in my field that’s not located in what is pretty much what people call a blue city. We need affordable housing, free healthcare, free college which I have around $100,000 in college debt to payback at making $35,000 a year with my human development & family studies degree. I will never be able to pay this debt, rent, and bills much less be able to eat. Free college is the only way young people like me can have a future and older people who had a way easier time getting ahead when the price of living was ridiculous cheap should pay for our college in student loan forgiveness since college was 100 times cheaper when you all went to school. Healthcare was cheaper according to my father he paid $100 a month and my job just pays a fraction of my healthcare and I have to pay the rest at $350 a month even though I am just 26 years old. Rent is $1500 a month for what is a one bedroom apartment that doesn’t even have it’s own kitchen or shower. We have a toilet and sink but not shower and I have to share the shower with 15 other residents. All I have is 340 square feet that includes a microwave and refrigerator.
It’s to much for the younger generation, capitalism is a massive failure that young people unless they become a doctor have no chance to make it in, and even then they have to pay back and insane amount of debt. We need help from the older generation, we need taxes massively raised on everyone making over $50,000 to make things easier or at least attainable for my generation. I like what Sanders is saying he wants us to have a chance and I have studied socialism and it is way better than capitalism if one just gives it a chance. I would argue communism would probably be better than the craziness we have in the country called the U.S. which really isn’t our lands to begin with
It’s time to vote with compassion we need a chance to have a future. We need a socialist to put the rich in their place and give the little guy and younger generation at least a chance. A person shouldn’t have to eat Campbell’s chicken noodle soup and Ramen noodles to get by much less the dream of owning an apartment much less and automobile. I have to take the bus to work and it takes close to two hours each way. This can’t go in it’s time for the rich to give back, it’s time to bring down this system that only awards the rich or those who came from and easier time when things weren’t so expensive, it’s time for Sanders instead of a crazy billionaire who just spends all his money on hotels and golfs while we try to make it just to starve.
Are there any republicans out there that has the compassion to see how this has failed. Even my father and mother have said it’s way to much and have offered me to live with them but there isn’t any opportunity in my field where they live. Try to search your heart and remember we are people to please this has to change and trust me literally 90% of college students agree with me and will be voting in mass join us let’s put this country to the path other civilized countries do that help with massive social programs and free college. At least with my college debt forgiven it at least give me a solid chance to have a small tiny portion of what once was the American dream.
