Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “In his debt: Bernie Sanders just made Elizabeth Warren look moderate”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Back in April, Elizabeth Warren proposed wiping out the first $50,000 of student debt for anyone with a household income below $100,000 a year. That would be a very real boon to poor, working- and middle-class Americans (especially those who took on debt and never completed their degree), albeit at the nothing-to-sneeze-at cost of $1.25 trillion over 10 years.

Not to be outdone, Bernie Sanders just thunked down a still bigger, pricier idea: Wiping out all student debt. No income limits, no caps. Cost: $1.6 trillion over 10 years.
