The Sanders ran out of other people's money

© 2016 Jim Spence - My oh my. It looks like Jane, the wife of avowed Vernont socialist Bernie Sanders, ran out of other people’s money. Of course this is what happens when socialists are put in charge of anything. Basically they run things into the ground and then……..they run completely out of other people’s money. Puerto Rico is a great example of this.
The story is all too familiar. For some odd reason Vermont keeps sending Bernie Sanders to the Senate to represent them. And for an even odder reason Jane Sanders was chosen to run Burlington College. Jane Sanders, who never saw any government proposal to manage something she did not like, decided that Burlington College needed a new ultra expensive campus on Lake Champlain. And apparently Jane Sanders became so ego invested in this idea, she began to make promises neither she, nor Burlington’s small list of donors, could keep. The results were predictable. The college closed and people lost their jobs while millions of federally insured bank deposit dollars were lost.
The investigation into the ways that Jane Sanders duped bankers into giving her control over millions of dollars that Burlington could never repay is escalating, while both of the Sanders claim the entire process is about politics. Sadly, all of the lost jobs at Burlington and the money lost by the taxpayers on the defaulted loans are the farthest things from the Sander’s minds.
The Washington Post picked up this story and quoted David Dunn, one of the school’s trustees, as saying that although Sanders’s fundraising figures were inaccurate, he thinks she had, “good intentions.” Dunn also said, “For me, personally, I don’t believe she (Jane Sanders) had malicious intent. I don’t think it rose to that level. Jane had an agenda that she wanted what was best for the college," he said. "And she stretched it beyond its capabilities.”
That pretty much sums up what happens with Democrats and socialism. Their intentions are good. Kind of like the lovable idiots we all know who piss their money away as a matter of routine. There are almost always gross miscalculations made by Democrats with an agenda, that do not have to include any financial realities. We see this process unfolding everywhere. Places like Detroit, Chicago, the entire state of Illinois, Puerto Rico, are pretty much the same. These locales are either bankrupt or moving quickly towards bankruptcy by people like Jane and Bernie Sanders. It is sad that Sanders devotees are so clueless they refuse to even acknowledge the possibility that Bernie will run out of other people’s money........like Jane did at Burlington College.
Oh and get this. After moves that bankrupted and closed the school, moves that cost taxpayers a fortune, both Bernie and Jane have decided to blame......get this.....it is so creative........Donald Trump.
