Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have competing “free” college proposals, except there’s the usual problem:
AP FACT CHECK: In Democrat debate, Clinton, Sanders pitch free tuition that actually costs a bundle: http://t.co/oXmnKaaH6f

So…they lied? Right? If it's not free, that means they lied. https://t.co/kUqdBjzDye

Dems like Sanders and Clinton don’t appear to be pushing Economics 101 as a “free” college requirement.

THIS. Seriously, as much as we all wish it was true, free tuition isn't just going to happen. Someone always pays. https://t.co/yfkkwuU27h

There is no such thing as "free" anything from the govt. The govt gets money via taxes & then allocates it https://t.co/5pgpADm5mt

The White House has also proposed a “free” college plan that would be anything but.
