Alongside Bernie Sanders, New York Governor Announces First-in-Nation Free Tuition Plan (from @Truthdig)
It is good to see Cuomo giving Bernie Sanders the credit he deserves for making this a front-burner issue in the Democrat primary. My concern is that Bernie is being played by Cuomo the same way the Working Families Party was played… Cuomo is a neoliberal through and through despite the conservative effort to label him as “progressive” or “liberal”. There is one difference between Bernie Sanders and the WFP, though: if Mr. Cuomo betrays him as he did the WFP Mr. Sanders will call him on it in a heartbeat!
“Our job is to encourage every person in this country to get all of the education they can, not to punish them for getting that education,” Sanders said Tuesday in New York. – 2017/01/03
