Clinton's Plan For Free College Looks Like Sanders' Plan — But Cheaper
The Clinton campaign estimates her plan would cost $350 billion over 10 years, and there's a plan to pay for it.By Stephanie Liebergen | July 6, 2016
Hillary Clinton is trying to woo Bernie Sanders voters by adopting one of his big campaign plans — free college. So how much money are we talking about?
The Clinton campaign announced plans to provide free in-state tuition at public colleges for families with income up to $125,000. There are about 700 four-year public colleges and 920 public community colleges in the U.S.
The first year the plan is implemented, families making up to $85,000 a year would get free tuition. Then that family income threshold will increase by $10,000 each year until it hits $125,000.
