Bernie versus Bernie: Home Depot cofounder blasts prez candidate over economic policy

2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has long been a proponent of democratic socialism; an economic policy that seems to resonate heavily with America’s youth.

Sanders, who has long touted the often-disastrous ideologies of socialism, has used this political powder keg to garner massive interest from the democratically-voting youth demographic, making the Vermont Senator one of the de facto frontrunners of the 2020 election.  These young voters, who often are only a few years removed from the “socialism”-adjacent economic reality of living with your parents, tend to see Sanders’ proposed system as a way to ensure that their future will be flush with prosperity.

Apparently, they’ve not quite gotten to the history of communism in their academic careers.

And as Sanders looks poised to make a long run in the 2020 primaries, a number of prominent and successful businesses leaders are sounding the alarm on what can go wrong, nah, very wrong, with the concept of socialism.

The co-founders of Home Depot believe if Bernie Sanders were president when they tried to open their business in 1978, the home-improvement retailer may never have existed.

In an exclusive interview with Neil Cavuto, Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone explain why.

When asked about Bernie Sanders’ plan to have Wall Street pay for $1.6 trillion in student-loan debt, the two had a few things to say about the self-proclaimed socialist’s plan.

Langone agreed, “if the people in America today … if they want to know what the future holds for them following Bernie Sanders, go to Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, Eastern Europe. Guess what? It doesn’t work.”

Sanders’ socialism isn’t the only radical idea held by the failed 2016 presidential candidate either.

During a town hall event earlier this year, Sanders told the crowd and host Chris Cuomo that he would like to see voting rights restored for incarcerated felons…including terrorists.
