Cuomo has proposed actually implementing the Bernie Sanders (and later Hillary Clinton) plan to make college tuition free for students whose families earn less than $125,000 a year.
Even if it’s just a ploy to jump start his 2020 bonafides, I’ll take it.
Cuomo was joined for the big unveiling by none other than Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who popularized the idea of eliminating public college tuition during his run for the presidency. However, the governor’s proposal is actually a bit closer to Hillary Clinton’s free-tuition plan, which was also aimed at families earning less than $125,000.
If Bernie Sanders can make Andrew Cuomo do progressive things he might be up for sainthood.
