Huckabee: Free College Means Students Will Cut Class
Speaking to Iowa radio show host Simon Conway Mike Huckabee wants you to know what moochers students are who get free education.
When Conway asked Huckabee about voters wanting “free stuff” from the government, the presidential candidate responded by recalling a conversation that he had had that very day with a “young lady” who wanted “free college.”
,,,I think, ultimately, we have to make the case to the American people. And this is one of the reasons, I feel like, that I would be the best candidate, because I can speak to the common-sense language of the people and explain to them, as I did to a young lady today who asked me, she said, ‘What can you do to maybe see that I can have free college?’
And I said, ‘I would never try to get you free college, because if we gave it to you free when you were 20, you’d be paying for it when you were 30, 40 and 50, and the fact is there’s no such thing as free.’ And I went on to explain to her that if we gave it to you for free, you wouldn’t appreciate it, you’d probably cut class.
