When Democrats start throwing the word “free” around, it’s time to get nervous, because someone is always going to get stuck paying the tab. Most often, that someone is taxpayers.
Such is the case with the case of New York’s free college program. Liberals claim that free college allows low-income students who could not afford college to expand their horizons. The mainstream media has also reported this news as if it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
The program offers free tuition to state and city universities of New York to students families with annual incomes of up to $125,000 per year, according to the New York Daily News.
But as most thinking people already know, nothing is free — including New York’s “free” college tuition program, which was passed Wednesday with the approval of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and cheers from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Daily News reported.
