Yes, there really are people this stupid out there. How can no one understand that “Government funded” equals “tax payer funded?”
But perhaps no one is as inept in regard to economics than old Bernie himself. He tweeted this not too long ago:
Hey Bernie! Of course interest on student loans are higher than on mortgages! There’s no collateral! You can’t reposes a college education when someone defaults on the loan like you can a house when they don’t pay their morgage! D’uh!
