During her speech at the Democratic Convention, Hillary Clinton, in an attempt to woo Bernie Sanders voters, promised to work to have the government provide free college tuition. “Bernie Sanders and I will work together to make college tuition-free for the middle class and debt-free for all,” she said.
If this occurs, it could very well mean the end of many Catholic colleges. And please remember, for many on the left that would be considered a feature, not a bug.
Under Clinton’s proposal, the government would pay tuition for students of families earning less than $125,000 per year for in-state colleges and universities. This would obviously put private colleges and universities at a massive competitive disadvantage.
