Sen. Bernie Sanders shot back at critics of his economic proposals at a press conference at the Institute for Research on Labor and Unemployment at UC Berkeley Friday evening.
Sanders echoed his comments from the campaign trail about making tuition free at public universities.
“Right here at the University of California at Berkeley, I believe that in the year 2016, public colleges and universities should be tuition-free and we should lower student debt,” Sanders said. “Are these radical ideas? These are not radical ideas.”
During the question and answer portion of the conference, Sanders returned to his tuition plan. His frustration with Wall Street and some of his colleagues in Washington surfaced as he detailed his plan to cover those tuition expenses.
