If you mean without taking additional money from taxpayers, that is simple. Use the money that we are already spending on healthcare, $3 trillion a year, on private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, the VA and Obamacare, and make it Medicare for all. A tax on all Wall St transactions could pay for college, ending the wars, empire foreign aid and handouts to billion dollar corporations, and will give us over a $trillion in surplus revenue. As fo raising the minimum wage, that does not cost the tax payer anything, it would put more money in the hands of people who will spend it, that will attract business.

Because it really isn't that much to increase people's wages in the slightest. Our wage in concerns to the value of the dollar are really nothing.
When you consider that the ceo of McDonald's makes $9500 an hour. Honestly a lot of America's economic problems would be solved if we taxed the rich more and addressed the wealth gap.

He said people's taxes are going to go up tho lol he said that you'll save more by doing a direct tax then trying to work it out with other companies that charge up the prices for no good reason.

That's what I'm wondering, too. This seems like he's hoping for too much, because there's no way that all of this will just happen on its own.

I believe he meant to charge the mega-rich corporations 50 cents a share for traded stock. That would more than cover it. Hillary lives in their pockets so it won't happen now. I'm writing in anonymous so that by next election we can have a third party that represents the people. No way I'd ever vote for a criminal, rich man's pawn like the Shillary.

Bernie Sanders proposed taxes for several of those propositions. So, it is not "without" taking money from people, but considering the people bailed out the rich to begin with, they should to do the same for the people.

Just empty promises, like all politicians make...ALL of them. At best, he might improve things in some of those areas.
