Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders drew scorn from the right after a post he made on Twitter went viral. The post, which criticized the rates of home refinances versus student loans, was mocked by anyone and everyone with a clear understanding of banking, economics, and politics. Critics of Sanders, both conservative and libertarian, have attacked Sanders on his ignorance of basic economics; but rarely does he openly admit he does not understand how market mechanisms work.
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?
