    Romney's big 'four years tuition-free' college

    http://www.umass.edu/oapa/publicatio.../FS_chg_01.pdf

    This is just another lie. The facts shows that his plan covered around 20%. They did not cover the fees or room and board.

    Brilliant deduction there Jetdawgg!

    Seriously, it takes genius level thought to see "Romney's big 'four years tuition-free' college" and conclude that it means TUITION free.

    Plenty of students do not stay in the dorms. They commute.
    Fees do seem high, BUT if you perform in HS yoiu get help. Lazy bum=no help. Seems fair.
    My college cost nothing. Free ride. I worked hard to get that.
    All my children went to college for free. Full rides. They worked hard to get there.

    Yep. Guess he would get pissed if he was given a "free movie ticket" and then had to pay for the popcorn and coke.

    Now that I see this I am voting Obama. I thought both candidates felt everything in America should be free.

    Oh come on. How can you separate "required fees" from tuition. Room and board is optional, but anything mandatory should be defined as tuition. According to the statistics linked "Mandatory Fees" have increased nearly 3000% in 20 years. While "tuition" has increased around 50%.

    At what point Would you consider "tuition-free" misleading? What if tuition were a dollar, and they added another 1.5K "attendance fee"? That seems to be the way the trend is going here. Again, this assumes the source is accurate.

    Romney wants to take away peoples rights to free room and board at Universitys!!???! Only an evil 1%er would limit free tuition to just tuition. What about cell phones and laptops? I heard that Romney refused to give those students revieving the scholarship free cell phones. I can't understand why this right wing moderate flip flopping plutocrat would take away students rights to own a cell phone. Its crazy.

    Vote Obama 2012 - "Free tuition, room and board, Ipads and cell phones for all students!!"

    Next they will also want spending money. Need to buy beer and birth control pills, right?
    The NCAA is considering allowing athletes to get spending money on top of their full rides BTW. Are you kidding me.

    Romney made it sound as though college was a slam dunk for the people of Mass. They would be able to afford college.

    Now it is clear that it's just another scam. You can see that the fees went up during his term also.

    Why Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts Education Plan Backfired

    The cost of college is one of the major barriers for many poor students, so it seems logical that paying for their tuition would help more of them graduate from college. But research into the Adams Scholarship and the 12 others like it across the country suggests that these programs do little to improve college access because they typically go to students who already plan to attend college. If anything, these researchers say, the scholarships can widen existing income and racial gaps in college attendance.

    A study released this summer by Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government found that Massachusetts students were likely to use the scholarship to attend a state school with fewer resources than private schools they might have gone to otherwise. The result? Students who use the scholarship actually take longer to graduate—and they are less likely to graduate at all.

    “This is a very unusual example of a situation in which we make money available to students, and they actually end up worse off,” said report co-author Joshua Goodman, an assistant professor of public policy at the Kennedy School.

    How is it a scam? Holy crap, how much free **** do you people actually want?

    College fees went up during the 4 years he was in office??!? No, I refuse to believe that college fees went up at any point in recent history.
