My opinion on Free College/ Free Tuition
We all know the Presidential Debate is stirring up quite a bit of controversy among the American people, and Arguments are happening with each Presidential Candidate, and has American Citizens wondering, “Who is going to be our next President of the United States (POTUS)? One such Candidate that has caught my attention in particular, is Bernie Sanders and his apparent promise under “The Sanders plan”: to make tuition free at public colleges and universities throughout the country, and it would make college students lives much simpler, and wallets much thicker, but I have a problem with it. Nothing in life is free, or should be handed to you. As a college student myself, you would think I would be all for it, but think about it, if college is free, where is the money coming from? Everyone in America would be paying for your education. How you may ask? Taxes. The Tax rate would skyrocket if “The Sanders Plan” took effect. The money has to come from somewhere. As a College Student and a U.S. Soldier, I earned my free tuition by signing a contract and swore an oath to the U.S. Government. So it wouldn’t be fair for everyone to have free tuition/college without having any type of commitment or having earned it, that’s why I have a problem with it.
