do you guys really understand what you are asking? Most of you will probably try to counter my by saying "Oh these countries already get if for free such as Germany, Sweden, Etc. but the question is, is it really free? No it isn't, it will still need to be paid for by someone which will end up being the government. Now, for the government to pay for this, they will need the money to do so, how will they do this, raise your taxes because the money won't just pop out. if you don't believe me, go take a look at those countries that have that free education. Their taxes for personal are 15%-20% higher than you if not more so that is like if you make $50,000 a year, that is pretty much paying $7,500 - $10,000 a year. Here is a graph for you if you are too lazy to look it up (yes, this is 2005 data but still)
now, look at Germany, Sweden, and Belgium. Places where University is free. They are paying a hell of a lot more taxes than you. Now, are you prepared to pay that kind of tax for the rest of your lives or would you rather pay it for 4 years or whatever pay it off and then make more money in the long run?
You guys really need to start thinking instead of looking at the top layer before making statements and demands.
