I’m curious as to the origin of some ideas from politicians. The latest from Hillary is that it should be free for anyone to attend a public university.
I have a problem with that – it will cost ~$350 billion dollars, which means we’ll see taxes go way, way up.
And the other problem is the blatant hypocrisy, which Hillary pulls off without shame over and over again. She criticized “for-profit” universities. (Side note, since when did it become evil to make a profit? that’s how capitalism works HELLO!?)
But in criticizing “for-profit” universities, is she forgetting that she benefited financially from Bill receiving more than $16 million from 2010 to 2014 as honorary chancellor of Laureate Education, a for-profit education company.
I guess they’re not just all Clinton ideas; Bernie Sanders has them, too – make college free, make all entry level jobs pay at least $15/hour. Why stop at that, give everyone free electric mopeds, free internet, free cable TV. Profit is evil, we must find people making a profit and stop them (dripping with sarcasm). Oh wait, hey, maybe we make it a requirement that ex-Presidents cannot be compensated for speeches. #freexpresidentspeeches
