Pete Buttigieg has apparently decided that the way to fight free college tuition is to invoke the idea of means-testing. This plays well with donors and the upper-middle class, and it provides the illusion of being based on fairness. But it is a cruel and deeply cynical scam to undermine the type of effective universal social programs that best serve a democratic society.
I wrote this a few weeks ago about how Bernie and Warren disagreed on means-testing in one instance. This difference applies in spades concerning the difference between Bernie and Buttigieg or Bernie and Biden on this fundamental issue.
