Hillary Clinton’s Adoption of Bernie Sanders’ ‘Free’ College Tuition would Cost $35 Billion

Considering that the U.S. government already is running a deficit, adding $35 billion to it is not conducive to financial stability or common sense. This from Reason:

Clinton is doing more of the same here, because it turns out that “free” college tuition is actually pretty expensive.

Under a plan she announced earlier this month (as part of a political deal to win Sanders’ endorsement), anyone from a family making less than $85,000 a year would get free tuition to public universities. The threshold would increase to $125,000 by 2021.

The project comes with a price tag of at least $35 billion annually.
