Our country needs LESS entitlement, and more initiative. As a student I incurred over 40k in student debt, and paid it off in a little over 8 years. This taught me not just the value of my education, but appropriate money management. To just GIVE AWAY education on the backs of taxpayers is not just a disservice to our youth - it would put a substantial amount of power in our universities who would then be stewards of an even larger 'arm' of the federal government. So while in theory this sounds great - it would be one big victory for big government.
