Skip to comments.Neil Cavuto Asks Student Protestor How U.S. Will Pay for Socialist Wish List
Posted on 11/12/2015 4:03:41 PM PST by Hojczyk
Fox Business host Neil Cavuto engaged a scholar in earnest Socratic dialogue Thursday.
Keely Mullen is a national organizer for #MillionStudentMarch, a movement that demands âtuition-free public college, cancellation of all student debt, and a $15 minimum wage for all campus workersâ in response to the crisis caused by rapacious corporate education.
â#MillionStudentMarch is a movement for a more equitable and fair system of education as opposed to the really corporate model we have right now,â Mullen said.
Mullen is a graduate of the prestigious Francis W. Parker School and political science student at Northeastern University, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Cavuto asked how this agenda would be financed.
âGreat question, I mean, you know, soâIâm not sure if youâre talking about a national level or per school?â Mullen said.
When pressed, Mullen said that the top one percent of earners needed to pay tax rates upwards of 90 percent, a rate 10 percentage points higher than that proposed by socialist Thomas Piketty. Mullen said it was worth it.
âI live in a world and I see a system around me where there is a population that is doing nothing to contribute to the progression of society,â Mullen said, referring to the freeloaders at the top who pay more in taxes than the bottom 90 percent of earners combined.
When Cavuto pointed out that even a 100 percent tax on the top one percent of income earners would be insufficient to fund Medicare for three years, much less free college tuition and a $15 minimum wage, Mullen delivered a devastating rebuttal.

You may need a drink will watching this!!!!!!!!!!!
The definition of a COTTON CANDY MIND: 5% substance and 95% air. I wonder if her professors are willing to work for free to make this utopia happen.
I am beginning to wonder if “higher education” only refers to drug usage. These kids are shockingly disconnected from truth and logic.
The 1% are supposed to for pay it. Along with health care, social justice, global warming, ending racial ‘uncomfortableness’, and Obama phones. Such utter nonsense.
I wonder if she would be willing to work for free to make this utopia happen.
Increased taxes is an assault on saving and investment by everyone, not just the rich.Increased saving is necessary to increase capital accumulation, which is necessary to fund childish libtard utopian fantasies.Also saving is necessary to continue the process of economic progress. Without that, there would be less and less income to tax.
This young woman might not like it, but we DO have government schools... They don’t work well - but that’s another subject.
So, is the solution to add four more years to high school? And abolish one of the best - if not THE BEST - University system in the world?
....if the 1% made it why should she take it ..it not her money
....and if the 1% stole it then it should go back to who it was stole from...it still not her money
in all cases it not HER money
Even factual numbers do not phase this brilliant young scholar. She will most likely chair a Business College at a Big 10 University soon. Of course, after she emerges from her “safe space” because of the many microagressions she suffered at the hands of Cavuto.
She is the spawn of a subsidized family aka Welfare, so it's not surprising she believes in Gimmedat.
She wasn't intelligent enough to follow what Cavuto was saying. She wants 100% tax on the 1%ers. OMG
No doubt she would vehemently disagree with you. You see, her theories on economics and wealth are based on Disney comic books.
I think she basically said that, at least that’s what I heard. Yeah she said, absolutely that would make for a more progressive social society. IDIOT
Looks like US colleges are a waste of timeâ¦unless taking Tech..Medical or engineering
No one will pay for it! That is what “free stuff” means.
Wait till the tide recedes on the US economy and all of these liberal zombies are stuck with 150K in student loans for degrees in “GLBT Dance Studies”. NAZI Germany all over again when our new socialist government arrives promising debt forgiveness as long as they do as their told...
My father was a graduate of Northeastern.....
His cousin was a professor there ........
Both are dead and dont have to see what has become of the
once great university
7 years of college down the drain.
That made my head hurt. We should really reconsider moving the voting age back to 21.
