GenOpp: Clinton Proposal A Bad Deal For Students

Today, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released a policy proposal that does nothing to improve the quality of our higher education system. 
Like President Obama’s “free” community college idea, Mrs. Clinton’s plan has a feel-good sound to it, but will actually end up driving up costs for hard-working taxpayers.

Generation Opportunity National Spokeswoman Patrice Lee issued the following statement:
“Empty promises of ‘free’ college is the Washington equivalent of pouring students another drink to cure their massive debt hangover. What’s being sold as a sweet deal for students is actually a repackaging of the same government programs that caused debt and tuition to skyrocket in the first place. Nothing is free, and any increase in federal funding for higher education will fall directly on the backs of the very students it’s supposed to help." 
Generation Opportunity is a national, non-partisan organization advocating for economic opportunity for young people through less government and more freedom.
