Wait, Clinton's "Free College" Plan Isn't Really Free?
The old saying "Nothing in life comes free" should be top of mind when considering Hillary Clinton's "free college" proposal. As IWF's Charlotte Hays writes, it's not Clinton, but taxpayers (particularly millenials) who will be on the hook for covering tuition costs:
And, yes, my dear millenials, you will pay longer than I will because the deal on offer is, as the Wall Street Journal sums it up in an editorial ("Free College, Dude"), subsidies now and higher taxes later.
Under Mrs. Clinton's plan, an attempt to get Sanders voters on board, taxpayers will pick up college tuition for state institutions for families with incomes up to $125,000. This is about 80 percent of U.S. households. With the promise of all this money, colleges inevitably will raise tuition costs.
