Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is riding high (for the moment) in the Democratic presidential race, in part owning to his promise to offer so many people "free" stuff like college educations and health care.

But as most people know, there is no such thing as "free," particularly when it's a government program. There are very real, and sometimes very large, costs. Who will pay for Sanders' litany of free stuff? As Sanders himself makes clear in this video, the middle class will see their taxes rise substantially. But it's okay -- they'll like it, because they will be getitng so much "free" stuff in exchange for paying higher taxes.

It's all a part of his "new vision for America," which sounds a bit creepy, and a little menacing, particularly for those who would rather keep what they earn, rather than hand it over to the government.
