In a crowded field of Democratic presidential hopefuls, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has managed to maintain and grow a following similar to his 2016 race against Hillary Clinton. Sander made waves again this week with a plan to handle student debt prompting much interest in social media.

Sanders announced his plan on Monday along with Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, entitled "The College for All Act." Under the plan, 45 million Americans who are struggling with their student debt would be freed from making those payments. To make up for the $1.6 trillion in standing debt from the student loans, there would be a tax increase on Wall Street transactions.

Sanders' proposal would also make two and four-year schools tuition and debt-free going forward. It would also make apprentice programs and trade schools across the U.S. free to attend.

Twitter had thoughts on Sanders' plan and what it could mean for the country, both good and bad.
