Sanders said, “I do believe that in the year 2016, we have to look in terms of public education, as colleges — as part of public education, making public colleges and universities tuition free. I believe that when real unemployment is close to 10%, and when our infrastructure, our roads, our bridges, our water systems, Flint, Michigan, comes to mind, our wastewater plants, our rail, our airports, in many places, are disintegrating, yeah, we can create 13 million jobs by rebuilding our infrastructure, at a cost of a trillion dollars.”

Hillary already has over half the superdelegates and is expected to gain more
BY KIT DANIELS
It doesn’t matter what the Bernie Sanders campaign does because Hillary Clinton is practically already the presidential nominee, a Democratic superdelegate admitted to Infowars reporter Richard Reeves.
Clinton already holds over half the party’s superdelegates, the top-level lawmakers and party officials who qualify automatically as a convention delegate because of their “luminary” status.
Of the 712 Democratic superdelgates, at least 394 have already pledged support for Clinton and more are expected to back the former Secretary of State.
“The people [party insiders] who have worked for Hillary for decades are big supporters of her, and if they have’t said so yet [openly supported her], they will over the next several weeks,” said Democratic National Convention member Bob Mulholland, who’s been a superdelegate since 1992.
He also mentioned that to get the Democratic nomination, a candidate needs about 2,400 delegates out of nearly 4,800 delegates total, which includes the 712 superdelegates.
“The way we work, anyone who gets 15% or more in an election gets delegates, so this election will go all the way to California [the nomination] and Sanders will end up with well over 1,000 but Hillary will get the nomination,” Mulholland added.
