Watch: ‘Million Student March’ Nat’l Organizer Stumbles on How to Pay for Free College and Debt Forgiveness

“Million Student March” national organizer Keely Mullen made an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” on Thursday and discussed her protest promoting free college, debt forgiveness and a $15 minimum wage for students.

When Mullen was pressed by host Neil Cavuto on how she finance this proposal, she stumbled with her response but eventually proposed a 90 percent tax on top income earners.

“Great question, I mean, you know, so — I’m not sure if you’re talking about a national level or per school?” Mullen said when initially asked.

“I 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,” she added.

She later admitted it was unlikely many would voluntarily sign up to pay such high taxes.
