I am currently listening to the Democratic debate being broadcast on MSNBC. Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton have exchanged a lot of sharp words and promised a lot of things to the American people. Free health care, free college, among other things.
My friend Barry Foster likes to quote a former county commissioner, the late Archie Summers. The man had two questions he would always ask when something was proposed. Two questions that would be helpful when any politician proposes some brand new program or promises something "free."
1) How much is it going to cost?
2) Who's going to pay for it?
Am I the only one who thinks that these questions should be answered?
