MP 1: Zine Growing up, I never really had to worry about how I spent my money. Sure, every so often my parents would say no to a pair of shoes or the newest pink bike with flowers, but it was never a huge issue. I didn’t have to pay for school, there was no extra housing fee, and I wasn’t worried about if I had enough money on my debit card to buy a textbook.

Student debt is not as high in other countries because their education has never been as expensive as America’s, and we still don’t know exactly where all the money is going to, but this plan would lower the debt for future college graduates, and with help from the government and the people, we would be able to pay it off eventually. The final step in Sanders plan is to impose a tax that wall street speculators would have to pay, and it wouldn’t even be a full percent. I won’t say much more about the plan, because it is all laid out on Sanders’ website, so if you want to check it out, the link is down
