I sometimes chuckle at dark humor. I found myself chuckling at this report that Sen. Bernie Sanders not only supports taxpayer bailout of student debt, but insists that all college should be “tuition-free” (i.e., paid for by taxpayers).
I chuckled because I remembered that his wife (Jane Sanders) had driven a college of which she had been president into insolvency and ultimately to close because of debt incurred while she was president of the college. While she was drawing a large salary that no doubt helped to pay for one or more of the three luxury houses the Sanders own.
Multiple sources, in case you think I’m not being fair.
It may not be entirely fair to blame a husband for the financial idiocy of his wife, but the idea that a guy who could not even help his wife avoid driving a college into insolvency is trying to tell the rest of us how colleges should be run struck me as darkly funny.Published in
