As a current Trump Supporter, I really like Bernie. He is very genuine and I believe he wants to do good in the world but could you guys help me understand where all the money is going to come from?

I like Bernie but I found a comment in an AskAnAmerican thread that got me wondering how he is going to pay for everything…

"It's hard for a lot of people to see how the government could afford to pay for single-payer healthcare, and $ 1.6 Trillion in student loan debt forgiveness (his numbers), and $ 2.5 Trillion to build new federal housing (his numbers), and $ 70 Billion to renovate current federal housing (his numbers), and $ 200 Billion to the Green Climate Fund (his numbers), and $ 16.3 Trillion to basically recreate the CCC (his numbers), and $ 62 Billion in new VA infrastructure (his numbers), and $ 81 Billion in medical debt forgiveness (his numbers), for a total of $ 20.81 Trillion at least. His proposed billionaire's tax would bring in $ 4.35 Trillion over 15 years (his numbers), that still leaves us with over $ 16.4 Trillion (not including the cost of healthcare) needed.

All of the reasons listed would help people, there's no question, but how is it paid for? And before anyone brings up the military budget: 1. Bernie's website says nothing about cutting military spending. 2. One over-inflated budget doesn't give you carte blanche to ignore costs.

Some other issues like a bank in every post office just don't seem very logistically viable."

How can he fulfill these promises?

Introverted stay at home mom who’s bad at debating. What’s text/phone banking like?

As the title says, I am a stay at home parent who has supported Bernie since 2016. The thought of calling strangers absolutely terrifies me, and I have a hard time articulating my thoughts when conversations get tense. However, I believe in this movement so much and have had a nagging feeling that I could be doing more to help the campaign. I donate what I can but I want to help more if possible. Would love to hear other introverts/stay at home parents experiences with volunteering.

Are just normal text posts allowed? If they are, I’d like to say how excited I am about the possibility of Bernie winning and what it will bring in the future

As a ‘young person (can’t vote yet, almost!)’ I’ve had to watch people I looked up to share social media posts about Trump 2020 and stuff like that, which hurts me physically for some reason. Besides chasing that god roll Last Hope (!!!!), there was not really much to look forward to. And then I saw how popular Bernie was getting and how good his ideals are and his plan for everything and I finally had something to believe in again. I’m just so excited for the future.
