Obama's Free college, who is paying for this??
In honor of Habs calling me out and saying I am an Obama hater, I thought I would start my own Obama thread on his new FREE college plan. YAY!
And the Liberals say he's not a Socialist. Ha Ha Ha

I think it is one of the biggest jokes ever. All it does is make a two year degree worthless. The market will be flooded with people who have them. Right now a two year degree is the way to go. After this happens it won't be.
Why not just extend high school an optional extra year and have practical courses for specific jobs?

beachbum - I only used you as an example because you had posted in this thread. Not personal, just convenient. As for this idea. I haven't read anything on it yet. Here's my question. If you want an educated society (I think we can all agree that is optimal) and the government already pays for your first 12 years of education, what is wrong with government paying for a basic college education? Just as the rich or those able to pay can send their kids to private school, they could still send their kids to the more prestigious colleges.
I definitely think it deserves a little study and thought before dismissing it as the dreaded "socialism" that you all hate, yet live with already.

All Americans can now have a shot at the very least SOME basic college and continue their education.
This Obama guy is clearly the devil and Hitler rolled into one!

I seriously wonder how today's conservatives would have reacted when ordinary citizens were finally allowed to even HAVE an education paid by the government....I'm sure their heads would've literally done a 360 degree turn.

I super collect Brett Favre.
I trade by BV. SV is for Ebay. If you tell me you can get it cheaper on Ebay, I will tell you to buy it on Ebay. Fair warning.

I don't really care, I was just surprised you used me as the Obama Hater when I am clearly more anti-Lib, doesn't matter I think the problem here isn't the education, it is the question I posed in the title. WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR IT??
We are already 18.1 Trillion in debt, what is the national debt of Canada?
