STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Bernie Sanders wants the minimum wage to go up to at least 15 bucks an hour and he wants the federal government to guarantee everybody who wants a job should get one and they'll be paid that.

STUART VARNEY (HOST, VARNEY & CO.): It’s called a vote-buying operation. That’s what it is. $15 an hour, a government job with benefits guaranteed by the government.

DOOCY: Who pays for that?

VARNEY: I haven’t a clue.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): The same people that pay for free college.

VARNEY: I’m sure it will be, “tax the rich because the rich because the rich will be paying their fair share.” In fact, the rich already pay the vast majority of taxes in this country, and I’m sure that Bernie Sanders will be saying a guaranteed job for all paid for by the rich. It's a nonstarter.
