    MSNBCannibals talking education while preaching how great Open Borders are .. Open Borders Bankrupts the USA in the same way our trade deals siphoned out 12 trillion in wealth out the US domestic economy the last 20 yrs (Not the stock market economy!! Them stockholders are invested in human rights abusing countries like CHINA and MSNBCannibals never report on it)

  2. So what you are saying is taxpayers should pay schools more , because you are going to have free college, so taxpayers need to pay a lot more to make up the difference. so it’s not free after all

    The US is spending so much on the military that the army can’t spent it all. Why not use it on education?

  4. Clinton will be the nominee.

  5. Steyer is right. The GOP has been cutting the education budget for decades.
    They want a permanent underclass that is easy to control…

      Did you know he started a NON-PROFIT bank? When ppl pay back the loans, they funds help the next person.. unlike the other candidates, he has a 100% track record on and for helping others and still making millions on his own ventures. Unlike stealing from his organizations… Trump university anf other ORGANIZATIONS including the $$ for the election..He has been sued so many times, refusing to take paychecks because the courts would take it. Instead of paying back on his debts with his paychecks, he’d rather rip everyone off. He’s another KEVIN TRUDEAU.. Russia will be his home soon.

    • Wrong, decades ago the Republicans made their biggest mistake, they conceded The Department of Education to the Democratic Party. American History isn’t even taught in Public School now, Unions are enriching themselves with continuing pay raises and then paying democrats kickbacks at election time.

    Cut funding to “publick skuls,” until they start actually educating our kids, rather than indoctrinating them, and until the education produces better results than graduating seniors who cannot read at third grade level.

  7. I just found out that Trumps supporters don’t know what a constitution is, what war we are engaged in, V.Pres name, or even the name of the country we are aiding, why & where it is ! Egads ! They are so easily manipulated w/ propaganda by sheer ignorance, we are being trampled in a round-up of sheep being led to the slaughter house. Educate these imbeciles !

  8. Considering the billions that have been spent over the decades on education and where the US students rank among other nations
    students I would say the money is not the issue. I would say the problem is thinking that the Federal Government has a clue.
    I suggest you put Education back in the hands of the States where elected officials can be held accountable by the voters.
    The Bureaucracy of a Federal ran education system is a large part of the problem. Teacher unions are another.
    No worries though. They all talk a great game and the kids get the short end of the deal LOL Then again, a large portion
    of kids would prefer to just skip school and education.

    You go, Tom, stand your ground!

  10. This dude has a better chance winning the world series.

  11. Tom Steyer looks like the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz.

  12. Bull 💩

    Bring home our troops. That will save money.

    Daddy’s cash made you “great” ? You know the left isn’t accepting Boris Johnson’s victory in England, either. But they don’t dare try that Russia bit.

  15. The crowd response to Steyer’s answer shows America does not value education. That is sad. Happy to have gone to school when it did matter.
