Sanders’s Proposals Cost $18T

The total cost of programs proposed by presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders could run as high as $18 trillion over a decade, according to The Wall Street Journal. Much of that money would go toward implementing universal health-care coverage for all Americans, as well as increased infrastructure spending and free tuition at public colleges. The candidate has said these programs will ease stress on the middle class, and has unveiled tax proposals to pay for them.
