Brilliant Idea

I mean, what could possibly go wrong with making sure everyone with a high school diploma gets a "virtually free" college education?

It almost as if they want to ensure that college degrees become virtually worthless.

If they did that, you would see an awful lot of professional students who would never graduate. If a person changed their major enough times, they could probably go to school until retirement age without ever getting a degree.

Heinlein wrote a fine Novel called Friday back in the early 80's. The Section about her Adventures in the People's Republik of Kalifornia could be taken from Today's News.

They claim it will be revenue neutral, and will not result in any extra taxes, but will be paid for by eliminating "tax loopholes."

This is classic government doublespeak. If you change tax law to "eliminate a loophole" and that causes my tax bill to go up, you just increased taxes.

What are they going to do when students complain that they can't afford to not earn a paycheck while attending college? is paying them to go to college the next step?
