Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has a proposal that would make a lot of newly minted voters quite happy.

Sanders, a 73-year-old Vermont senator, introduced a bill known as the "College for All Act" that would make all four-year public college and universities tuition free. According to the plan, 67 percent of the funding would come from the federal government and 33 percent would come from the states. 

The plan would cost approximately $70 billion in total. According to a USA Today article, student debt has passed $1 trillion and is approaching $2 trillion, which this plan would help cut.
