Dr. Phil: Bernie Sanders' 'Everything's Free' Policies Create Vicious Cycle
Dr. Phil McGraw said on "Fox and Friends" this morning that Bernie Sanders is popular with younger voters because of his "everything's free" message.
Dr. Phil said that Sanders' young supporters don't understand that if they're getting something for free - whether it's health care or a college education - somebody has to pay for it.
He explained that according to Sanders' plan, for example, a person will get a free education, then get a job and pay extremely high taxes, which pay for the next person's free education.
"It's a vicious cycle," Dr. Phil stated. "Old sayings get to be old sayings because they're profound: 'There's no free lunch.'"
"They're just talking about the government getting bigger," he explained. "Free education? It'd be great if you could do it, but it's just not right."
Dr. Phil said that Sanders' "free stuff" plan actually cheats people, because it doesn't give them the opportunity to work for something, overcome obstacles and gain confidence.
