More education is an investment into our future, if every student receives a free college education funded by a increase in taxes from the rich and ultra rich, we'll have more skilled workers and people that will benefit and advance the future of our country.

 @9F8D49D from New York agreed…3mos3MO

A majority of students spends their entire life trying to pay their student loans. Most of the money they make goes into student loans. More than 50% of students not be able to pay off their debt, living their life not having enough money.

 @9F7GL3L from Virginia agreed…3mos3MO

College is the minimum for most jobs now and education for high school is not sufficient. It’s being filtered and much life survival information is being withheld.

 @9F7TV93 from Washington agreed…3mos3MO

The government should be supportive and provide financial help to its students because it will benefit the future of the nation. Education should be the number one priority for financial support from the government since it will help to build up citizens that will become great future workers.

 @9F8BTF9 from Virginia agreed…3mos3MO

More than 10% of American students going to school struggle from the debt that comes from student loans, college funds, and scholarships. I think people of higher income are more than capable of committing to this, as it might be beneficial or effective even if the efficiency is minor.

 @9F7WDMH from Washington agreed…3mos3MO

There have been several court cases leveraged against student loan companies that show payment from students being intentionally misplaced in order to increase interest on loans. Interest rates are already incredibly high, and these loans are targeted towards young people without fully developed cognitive abilities.

 @TealMadelynfrom Georgia agreed…3mos3MO

 @9F8Z5MK from California disagreed…3mos3MO

I disagree with increasing funding to pay for college because people that aren’t sending their kids to college or are already paying for college shouldnt be forced to pay for another persons education.

 @9FCM29C from Florida disagreed…3mos3MO

I don't believe in free College. College is already expensive enough as it is. And I firmly believe that free College would take away the accomplishment it takes to complete College and earn your degree.

 @GrudgingM1norityGreenfrom Tennessee disagreed…3mos3MO

I understand your viewpoint about the sense of accomplishment that comes with completing a degree. However, the key argument for free college is about accessibility and equal opportunity. It's not about diminishing the value of a degree, but about leveling the playing field so that more people have the chance to earn that accomplishment.

Consider countries like Germany and Norway, where higher education is essentially free. These countries still have rigorous academic standards and their degrees are highly valued globally. The accomplishment isn't in being able to afford education…  Read more

 @9F7SRTWDemocrat from Texas agreed…3mos3MO

People with the right education has more probability to create more jobs for other people and generate money

 @9F8D55P from Illinois agreed…3mos3MO

really? you statistics? Most if not all even the rich had to grow up poor at some point. There are many people who commit suicide over financial stress for loans

 @9F82ZRKRepublican from Utah agreed…3mos3MO

some students are desperate to get an education and don't have the money for it they need some kind of help.

 @9F8CQ2TLibertarian from Arizona disagreed…3mos3MO

Yes, it would be better to increase government funding so that many others have the opportunity to have a college education. The main reasons why young adults don’t start is because of money.

 @9F82KZ8 from Wisconsin disagreed…3mos3MO

I think families should instead save to send there own kids to college and not pay taxes for everyone to go.

 @9FB7XGR from Illinois disagreed…3mos3MO

It doesn't make sense to force the rich to pay extra taxes for the poor kids who can't pay the extra taxes.

 @9FBD2QC from Connecticut disagreed…3mos3MO

I don't think that our government's money should be spent on providing students a free college education. I feel that our country's money should go to more important issues.

 @9FFPLCQ from Georgia disagreed…3mos3MO

I dont think goverment should raise because college at some places are a privlagge and people work hard to get in there.

 @9FGKNQT from South Dakota disagreed…3mos3MO

some places are a privlagge and people work hard to get in there.

  1. There is bias against poor students in these institutions regardless of skill level
  2. Allowing everyone to have a free college education (Ex. community college) would not remove the status nor cost of prestigious institutions.

 @9F8CS5P from Colorado disagreed…3mos3MO

The government doesn’t fund anything, taxes do. It’s your responsibility to pay for your stuff, nobody else.

 @9FFTB66from Northern Mariana Islands disagreed…3mos3MO

No, because students should learn their own way to pay for their loans. That is part of how this works and also a part of what they should learn.

 @9FBPBNL from Minnesota disagreed…3mos3MO

Going to college is not a complete necessity to Americans and the fact that they want to tax the people who have more than likely worked the hardest, just so people can go and get an education that sometimes is almost completely useless is simply crazy.

 @9F8LNPS from Connecticut disagreed…3mos3MO

Although the situation would be ideal, the consequences of raising taxes would cause an uproar throughout the united states.

 @9F7VGDB from Rhode Island disagreed…3mos3MO

If we have our free college education then taxes will soar through the roof that and citizens will pay a big price

 @9F7PXF3 from Kansas disagreed…3mos3MO

If we hope to see out future citizens progress our community, they should have the ability to get their education since the costs of college are a major deterant.

 @9F7PVJ3 from Minnesota disagreed…3mos3MO

They definitely should have very smart people not going to college because they can't afford it and their talent is wasted

 @9FFPTZF from Georgia disagreed…3mos3MO

Trump's Stance on Student Loan Debt
Besides using the HEROES Act to suspend student loan payments and stop interest from accruing due to the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, Trump also extended the student loan payment and interest pause twice more before he left office

 @9FBZCZ4Peace and Freedom from Texas disagreed…3mos3MO

The government should not increase funding so every student receives a free college education because having to work for your education makes you more qualified. If college were easy everyone would go.

 @9FBVF7N from Minnesota disagreed…3mos3MO

Some opponents of free college argue that the government shouldn't be subsidizing people's degrees in majors that aren't likely to lead to a good job. They might be okay with subsidizing STEM degrees but not, say, theater degrees

 @9F6CMJGLibertarian from Wisconsin disagreed…3mos3MO

College is expensive. It is the responsibility of the student to make smart financial decisions. If a student makes poor choices and decides to major in a sector that doesn't make much money and go to a university that's too expensive, why are taxpayers who made smart financial decisions, being forced into paying for someone else's poor choices, when they did it the right way? It's almost as if you are punishing the people who did it right. It is not the job of the Government to subsidize bad decisions.

 @9F6CFGG from Tennessee disagreed…3mos3MO

I feel like this is not smart considering the U.S. is already in trillions of debt and this will just dig the hole even deeper.

 @9F7DWK8 from New York disagreed…3mos3MO

You should be able to pay for college, or at least eventually pay the debts for it by working afterwards.

 @9F77DJQ  from California disagreed…3mos3MO

Increased taxes on people who do not need or want the education plan and pressure for families and making college seeming mandatory and dismissing different careers

 @9F77CFTJustice party member from California disagreed…3mos3MO

Why, because some students can’t afford the whole tuition for all 4 years so the government should be able to help out because they will get more money any way.

 @9F6XDZR from Washington disagreed…3mos3MO

there is no drive for students to want to go to college and work to pay their debt off if college is free.

 @9F6SVWL from Iowa disagreed…3mos3MO

That will force taxes way up, collage students are adults and should be able to pay for their own education that they choose to receive.

 @9F6R822 from Indiana disagreed…3mos3MO

You can make money any way in America. If you really want to go to college, then you can make money other ways to afford it. Also, many scholarships are available to everyone if you are willing to give enough effort in school. College is affordable for the poor if they are willing to work hard in school. There are also many different forms of financial aid given by the government already.

 @9F6SBRQRepublican from Florida disagreed…3mos3MO

There will no longer be any competitiveness within the high schoolers for grades and scholarships because everyone will get free college.
