Sanders should address that nothing Clinton has said in the opener has "gone beyond" what he said to open.

You have read more than a press release on Trump saying we should build a wall for these Primaries, no?

Btw, he gave his reasoning in the answer.

Free tuition would imply that more money would go into the colleges, and therefore they would be able to accommodate more students.

That's true, but you still get students who aren't serious.

The point isn't to make students more serious. The point is to make it easier for young people to enter job markets.

That's not the point I'm making.

If students will be able to go to college for free, they all will want to go, because they wont have to pay, so you will get various types of students, including ones who are just going because its free (probably because their parents are obligating them to go)

I honestly dislike Clinton, even though I'm a feminist. She is making herself look like a douche. It's like "I'm a Women, and therfor, you should vote for me!! YES WOMEN RIGHTS EVREYBODY!" there are more important issues to worry about than electing the 1st Women president.

This is a matter of positives and negatives where the positives are much greater, not throw it away because there's a stoner in the back of the classroom not paying attention.

You're not getting what I'm saying.

Those who can afford college, let them pay.

We have fee-waivers, we have Pell-grants that almost *any* student can obtain *if* they actually put the effort into filling out the paper work.

Making tuition free, would also increase our taxes. All of this free tuition money has to come from somewhere.

You dont need a college education to succeed at life or to even get a job depending on the field. Cop, fireman, truck driver, farmer, cab driver, construction worker, bodyguard to name a few. They arent glamorous jobs sure, but you dont need a college education for any of them either, and there are millions of all of those things in this country.

This is a matter of positives and negatives where the positives are much greater, not throw it away because there's a stoner in the back of the classroom not paying attention.

Rosalie's argument is dumb as hell, but what about Sanders's complete inability to actually fund free college education, let alone the odds of even enacting it into legislation in the first place should he get elected?

Of course it has to come from somewhere, but the budget isn't managed just by adding taxes. It's managed by cutting where we don't need spending, and moving money to where it's really needed - like education.
