Young Republicans

Education for Everyone

Education for Everyone

At a recent Lincoln Day event in Jasper County, one of my advisers had an interesting experience.  One, I am sure, well-intentioned young attendee asked him why Republicans were not more in favor of higher education.  When he pressed him for what he meant, he cited that New York had just passed a bill authorizing free college education for any New York resident making an annual income of $100,000.00 or less.  The young attendee thought that might be a good platform plank to attract young people to the Republican side.
