Let’s face it, Hillary Clinton’s “free tuition” platform came from one place. If you had been paying attention to the Primaries, you’ll know it was one of the key Bernie Sanders components to his campaign platform. Now, Hillary is taking it for her own and going full steam ahead with the “Free S**t 2016” slogan.
Ok, not really, but the free tuition platform IS something she is beginning to put into her speeches and her proposals. The sheer logistics behind something like this are mind boggling. At the Democratic National Convention, she said that she was going to work with Bernie Sanders (read as: stole his entire freaking platform) to make sure college tuition would be free for the middle class and debt free for all, whatever that means.
How about we take a note from a college professor who thinks that’s total BS, shall we?
A private college president and Clinton supporter says that this free tuition plan could put her school out of business.
Patricia McGuire, president of Trinity Washington University, said on “Fox and Friends” this morning that she felt she had to speak out because her students are being left out.
“Trinity, like many small, private universities, educates a substantial percentage of low-income students,” McGuire said, pointing out that 80 percent of their students receive Pell Grants and their median family income is just $25,000.
She said she is concerned that all the money that funds grants and scholarships at private institutions – like Trinity – will be redirected by the federal government to public universities.
“Why would you leave out some of the school that are doing the best work with low-income students who have been on the margins of education?” McGuire said. “It doesn’t make any sense.”
I mean, who better to know than a professor at a university? Hillary’s plan indeed, makes no sense. Instead of working hard, possibly taking out loans and paying them back, this is the Democrats plan: let’s dismantle the entire educational system so that whiny, Liberal millennials can have free education at the highest level imaginable, funding their Lesbian dance therapy classes and making sure that they stay unemployable for the rest of their lives, while idiots like Clinton and Sanders tell them that they deserve the world because they exist.
This is just another case of Hillary simply not thinking anything through. Will the federal government teach all these kids? If so, they’re going to have to pick up the tab for each and every professor and teacher in the country. And with the national debt at 19+ trillion, I don’t see that happening.
But then again, if liberals were good at math, they’d be conservatives.
