It’s incredible to think that a man who knows so little about economics could potentially be the leader of the free world.
Bernie Sanders continued his assault on basic economics on Saturday with a tweet questioning how home refinance rates could be so much lower than the rates of student loans.
You have families out there paying 6, 8, 10 percent on student debt but you can refinance your homes at 3 percent. What sense is that?

Apparently Sanders doesn’t understand that a tangible product has actual value therefore it can be taken back by the lender and re-sold.
And, as one social media user commented “a home has actual value, whereas a $100,000 degree in ‘women’s studies’ is WORTHLESS.”

The rest of social media wasn’t much kinder.
@SenSanders if you fail to pay off your mortgage the bank gets your property,a student loan?the gov gets nothing.

@SenSanders B/c the default rate on mortgages is a fraction of the rate on student loans, which anyone who isn't a pot-addled idiot knows.

@SenSanders Probably something to do with the house being an asset.
