Think college is expensive? Wait until it’s free
Has the time come for free college?
Democrats certainly think so. President Obama called for tuition-free higher education in his State of the Union address in 2015, and it’s already a reality in some form in at least 17 states. Among progressives, support is almost obligatory, so it’s no shock that Democrats who want to challenge President Trump in 2020—Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, former San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and counting—have jumped on the free-tuition bandwagon.
