Education

Free College

Support free or very low tuition for community college for vocational classes.

Various ideas on reducing the cost of college.

Require all universities with endowments of over $30 billion to contribute 1% of their total endowment each year ($300 million+/year) to the founding and operations of a new university in Ohio until it becomes self-sustaining, at which point another community will be identified (the “Harvard Creates a New University in Ohio Tax”).

Not sure why this couldn't just support a college already in the state of Ohio? Also why Ohio?

Cancel Student Debt

A "Bailout for the People".

blanket partial reduction in the principal of school loans, especially for recent graduates with the largest debt levels

Numbers not specified.

Reduce student loan interest rates, the rates are not specified except for

students get the same interest rates as the wealthiest bank

Propose an act called the 10×10 Student Loan Emancipation Act which would let the federal government buy private loans from students, students then pay 10% of their annual income every year for up to 10 years, after that the debt is forgiven.

Economy

Tax the Rich

Does not support a wealth tax. Wants to enact a Value-Added Tax with a lower rate or exclusions for staples and a higher rate for luxury goods. Tax capital gains at the same rate as income.

Living Wage

Does not support increasing the minimum wage, instead wants to give everyone $1,000 a month. To look at how this would impact minimum wage workers, if we assume 21 business days in a month, with 8 working hours every day, that would amount to $5.95 an hour extra ($1000 / 21 days / 8 hours). With the federal minimum wage at $7.25 right now that would come out to a $13.20 "minimum wage" instead. Obviously this comparison is not entirely the same as you would not need to work to receive the Freedom Dividend. However this does mean that $15 an hour would be a greater benefit to people making $7.25 - $9.04. In 28 states the minimum wage is less than this $9.04 threshold. These 28 states make up 52.9% of the US population. The states are below.

Healthcare

His stance is unclear. Here is his main healthcare page. He also has a detail page that at the top says

I support the spirit of Medicare for All

and near the bottom says

Explore ways to reduce the burden of healthcare on employers, including by giving employees the option to enroll in Medicare for All instead of an employer-provided healthcare plan.

There are no specifics regarding Medicare for All however.
