First off, if you knew you were going to get into a technical or community college for free, you wouldn't work hard in High School. You wouldn't be motivated to try and get a scholarship. Secondly, taxes. The states pay for most of the public colleges. But where does that money come from... The answer is TAXES! On average it would cost a total of $3,800 to attend a community or technical college for one year. A total of 21 million people attended community and technical college last year (2014-15). So, multiply the numbers together. Yep. That's a total of 79,600,000,000 (79 billion 600 million) Now, there are 209 million adults in America, but only about half of them are eligible to pay taxes. So about 105 million. So 79,600,000,000 divided by 105 million adults, you get the following: 760. So that $760 is added to your tax bill every year. After two years you pay $1520. Now, you may be a rich person, but $760 could be a lot to a lower income family. Even so, all of the 105 million people who can pay taxes would have to pay. If not, it would raise the taxes for everyone else even more! Take this for an example: Bill Gates is an extremely generous man who gives away much of his money. If he gave away 1 billion dollars every year for this cause, it would only take off $10 from the original amount of $760. So you would still pay an extra $750 in taxes. That is why I believe that, "In the U.S., you should not have two free years of tuition to a community college or technical college."

Hated this topic, neg wins so easy by arguing that no benefits can be accessed because tuition isnt the only thing keeping the poor out of schools.
