Should the national government pay college tuition costs for all its citizens?

  • Yes they should pay.

    Getting a college education is becoming increasingly expensive and is out of reach for many Americans. A college education is also required for almost any job these days. In order for Americans to be able to get a decent job the government should be required to pay for college tuition for all citizens.

  • No. I do not believe the national government should pay college tuition costs for all its citizens.

    No. I do not believe the national government should pay college tuition costs for all its citizens, because that would be economically impossible for a country like the United States that is trillions of dollars in debt. The mere thought of such a policy is laughable at best. Citizens should pay their own college tuition..

  • No, this would add a burden to the already-strapped economy.

    It would be nice if everyone could go to college for free. But this just isn't practical. The government is already strapped for cash, and this would add another burden to it. Thankfully, there are many ways people can go to college even if they don't have cash. They can take out loans, get scholarships, or possibly even qualify for grants. And need-based and academic-based support don't always need to be paid back.

  • The national government should not pay college tuition costs for all its citizens.

    It is unrealistic for the government to be expected to pay for college tuition. If college were free, at lot of people would attend college who are not serious students would attend anyway. It is important for people to pay tuition so that they have a vested interest in their education.

  • No, the national government should not pay for college.

    The cost burden on tax payers would be to much. The government definitely should not be paying for majors that we don't need such as music degrees. To many students take a bunch of classes that they don't need and the government should not pay for this waste. A lot of students drop out and that would also be a waste of government money.

  • They should not.

    The national government should not pay the college tuition costs for all of its citizens. This would put additional strain on the government and its funding. If you want to go to college, then you need to pay for it just like everyone else. The government does not need to hold you hand in everything.

  • No, that is too socialistic.

    No, the national government should not pay college tuition costs for all of its citizens, because the universities will just demand higher and higher tuition, and there will be no incentive for them to be efficient. Also, students who choose to attend school should have some kind of ownership interest in making good choices about secondary education.
