AUDIO: Ben Jealous Once Again Dodges Questions On His Reckless Spending Plans

Jealous has been caught once again refusing to detail how much his “free” college plan would cost – this time, on tape.

The RGA writes:

Maryland Democrat candidate for governor Ben Jealous has already been called out for refusing to say how much his Bernie Sanders backed, state-run healthcare system would cost taxpayers. Now, Jealous has been caught once again refusing to detail how much his “free” college plan would cost – this time, on tape.

Asked by a constituent how much his “free” college plan would cost Maryland taxpayers, a quivering Jealous replied that, “the exact cost will be, uh, tallied up by the, the legislative analysts when I’m governor. Um, you know, there’s a reason why the government has those things. It’s expensive to figure all that out.”

Listen here.

Ben Jealous knows that his “free” college plan is really just a massive tax hike Maryland can’t afford – that’s why Jealous is refusing to answer the question. The Washington Post has already called it “irresponsible,” “reckless” and a “pie-in-the-sky” proposal.

Meanwhile, Jealous’ primary opponents – including Kevin Kamenetz – refuse to comment on Jealous’ wild spending proposals. Do they too share Ben Jealous’ radical ideas?

Maryland voters deserve answers from Jealous and Kamenetz.
