Give Warren a BS Degree in Vote Buying

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

Looking ahead, it would be fairer to require colleges to refund a portion of the loan money to Uncle Sam when a student doesn’t make it to graduation. Colleges need to have skin in the game, so they’ll try harder to get students through the course of study and into the working world. But don’t expect to hear that kind of idea from Senator Warren, herself a college professor and member of the ivory tower establishment. Instead she’s proposing more freebies. She’s offering free tuition in all public colleges and universities, partly paid for by federal tax dollars and partly by the states — a huge unfunded mandate that will hit state taxpayers hard.

Free College? Jeb And Hillary Looking More Alike Every Day

Most importantly, Bush and Clinton are competing for the support of the same corporate interests who favor Common Core and its focus on producing compliant workers, instead of citizens who have the information and thinking skills to actively participate in the civic life of a republic.
