Clinton touts $350B college affordability plan, faces stiff opposition
Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton announced a $350 billion plan Monday to make college more affordable, calling for a “new college compact” designed to reduce the growing burden of student debt.
However, the plan faces a difficult sell to both liberal Democrats and Republicans, possibly not going far enough for the Democrats’ liberal wing, while turning off Republicans with a high price tag and increased federal intervention.
Clinton announced the plan at a town hall meeting at Exeter High School in New Hampshire, telling gathered supporters: “It’s ambitious but we should be ambitious.”
The campaign accompanied the announcement with a campaign video that featured a number of students struggling with student debt telling their stories.
Hillary lives a rich lifestyle, her foundation and speaking fees have made her a rich woman. America is broke we borrow from China to keep our government running. She is touting a plan that would cost billions on top of billions knowing America cannot afford it. She’s an idiot dangling a carrot hoping it will buy people’s votes.
