Big Talk With Everyone Else’s Money

Washington Free Beacon

Democratic candidates for the 2020 nomination have promised more than $210 trillion in new spending across the field, analysis by the Washington Free Beacon shows.

Of the 26 declared candidates—including Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) who dropped out earlier this month—most have put enormous new government programs front and center in their campaigns. Totaling up these proposals gives taxpaying voters a sense of the budget priorities of the average Democratic candidate.

That overall figure is an undercount, as it is based only on proposals for which the Free Beacon could identify actual spending estimates. The true figure is much larger. For example, Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I., Vt.) Medicare for All proposal is included, while Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D., Calif.) is not, because no cost assessment for the latter could be identified. More

  1. I would plow Tulsi Gabbbbbbbbard


    I would leave the rest of them on an island with no electricity and one uzi!

  2. She’s pretty saucy,
    Got a brain too.
    The others, a small island with limited resources.
    And insects. Lots of insects.
    And Arthropods if there is room.

  3. Aren’t we so lucky to be taxpayers?

    210 trillion!

    It’s an unfathomable number of dollars. Even a dollar, a lone dollar, has long since ceased to have meaning for these people. I remember raises that were 20 cents. I remember raises that were two dollars. I remember raises that were 20,000 per annum.

  4. Money is a sexist racist capitalist imaginary construct designed by “some white man” to oppress women and people of color.

    The only difference between $210 Trillion and $210 Billion is 3 zeros – so who GAF?
    Zero’s nuthin, right?

    We need to brush up on our Marx – no need for “money” in the socialist utopia.

    izlamo delenda est …

  5. I think it is very nice of the sweet Marxists to offer to take all our money and dole it back to us in bits and dribbles!

  6. Where do the moneyless democrats get all their dollars to support such a myriad of losers. No bang for the buck.And I love it.
