Republicans like to think they understand the concept of “free shit” but actually don’t

it’s a phrase used by republicans to denigrate the left for wanting tuition free college or socialized healthcare, but they don’t really understand how these concepts are no different than programs already in place.

When a republican’s house is on fire or they need police assistance do they pay the responders personally? Uh no. They keep the “free shit”. You see, something like free tuition or socialized medicine are no different. All of these programs are paid for with tax payer revenue. Bernie, after all, has tax proposals to pay for his ideas.

They understand it very well they know it is not free rather it’s college tuition Medicare for all or the green new deal the taxpayer is picking up the bill for all of it and it is not going to just be the so called one percent footing the bill.

Hell, if the Democrats have jobs, they can buy their own shit, instead of demanding that I pay for it!!!

(And BTW, having a degree in Gender Studies, which teaches you that you can't look in your pants and tell what gender you are, isn't an education... The typical kid in kindergarten can figure THAT out!!!)

Hey, did you know that you can actually send the government EXTRA MONEY to pay for all that FREE shit you want to give away, instead of trying to force ME to support a bunch of lazy bums???

Maybe the Democrats should try that, since they're so generous...

(But, sorry, the government doesn't accept food stamps!!!)

Lol you keep talking about supporting lazy bums when you really aren’t. The large majority of us pay taxes. But I get it. It makes you feel manly and superior deluding yourself in that way.

Me giving more money to the IRS by myself won’t magically pay for these programs. It’s a waste unless it is a collective fund.

Free tuition means the people who are going to school don't pay...the taxpayer pays.

That means you pay for school whether you go or not. If you decide to NOT go to college...tough shit, you are going to pay for it any way...and you will continue to pay as long as you live!

That's what "FREE" means!

On average:
People who go to college earn substantially more than people who don’t.

People who go to college contribute more to the economy than people who don’t

People who go to college are less dependent on government services than people who don’t.

THAT depends on what you study...

A plumber with a year or two of trade school makes a lot more that someone who doesn't even understand human "plumbing" (and who has a college degree in thinking chicks have dicks!!!)...

Cool. There’s 100 million Americans without college degrees. What are we going to do with 100 million plumbers?

Obviously, you skipped the first two words of my post.

These crazy republicans keep talking about this "free shit." but I don't know what they are talking about. We pay into the system, we get what we need, education, police, fire, ambulance, food assistance, housing assistance, FEMA assistance when a flood or tornado strikes in our country. There is no such thing as "free stuff." When I see people standing in the ruins of their homes in Oklahoma, New Orleans, Houston, I have some comfort in knowing that help for them is on its way. I am dishearted by the treatment of our folks in Puerto Rico. What is this? Throw paper towels at them???? First thing for our government. Get everything to Puerto Rico.

Yes, they are free to someone. Not to others (who never see them, but pay for them).

Which is what YOU don't understand.

We fully understand what this is.

It's taking from some and giving to others.

Yep, that is just what Bernie wants to do.

How are you so stupid or drunk that you don't understand that.

Please feel free to move someplace where they share your values (and your money).
