Sanders: If Millions of Young People Demanded Free Tuition, It Would Happen

‘If millions of them stood up, started e-mail, writing and demonstrating without the slightest doubt that is exactly what would happen’

SANDERS: "I talked to the president about that and what he indicated, it’s tough and it is tough. It is really tough. But I think that one of the most important things that a president can do is to help ordinary people come together in a variety of grass roots organizations to put the pressure, the pressure wall Street and campaign contributors now expert. For example, let me just give you one example and on this one, I am 100% sure that I’m right. If the young people of this country stood up and were very loud and clear that they are sick and tired of leaving college 30, 50, $70,000 in debt, that they want public colleges and universities tuition free and if millions of them stood up, started e-mail, writing and demonstrating without the slightest doubt that is exactly what would happen."
