You have the right idea if they would cut the defense budget by like 40% then they could pay for most of this. Over the last few yrs republicans have tried to add like 150 to 200 billion to defense Even the military says they do not need all of this it is a lot of waste

Not a bad idea. The correct forms of socialism should always promote the public good instead of private gain. Doctors and nurses would apply to this criteria.

Taxes don't fund spending. Spending is fertilized by the delusions of progressives. I'm so looking forward to their wonderful world of strawberry scented welfare checks and rainbow power love machines....

Millions of people get through college by working hard and minimizing their party time. That's what happens when it's your OWN money rather than Other People's Money.
If I might ask...how much did she pay for her masters.

Our students and young people today are struggling with huge loan debts when there is no guarantee of finding any jobs in this economy, and many even low-paying jobs; indeed, students who find jobs right after college still must pay their huge debts, or their parents' which isn't easy. Yes, community college is more affordable, and there are "scholarships" and "financial aid" out there, but still not enough and you could talk of tens of thousands of student loans after graduating despite all of this "free" money. Going to college is very expensive, and shouldn't be! Now those who chose to attend private college is different, and graduate school should be charged. Yes, I understand college isn't for everyone and surprisingly despite college being free of charge in many other nations, not all students decide to attend college or pick "crappy" majors.

I believe undergraduate degree should be free of charge for all students just like K - 12 in public schools. However, students must do good in high school to qualify. Public colleges should not be for profit!
I agree. I think college is the new high school. It used to be that if you wanted a decent job you had to finish high school. Today that's not enough

I think you are confusing the old system, with the new one introduced last year. Or are simply making stuff up now.
Quick Google check:

2.4 million college/university students in Germany, which has a population of 80 million.

21 million college/university students in the U.S., which has a population of 318 million.

Do the math.

An American is more than twice as likely to be able to go to college/university as a German.
