Does Santorum Know That Community Colleges Exist? May 21, 2015

Rick Santorum is lashing out at President Obama’s idea to make community colleges tuition-free, but his criticisms make no sense whatsoever. He thinks Obama intends to create “another layer of government schools” that will destroy the private sector.

Rick Santorum, speaking on the Iowa conservative radio show Caffeinated Thoughts in March, argued that President Obama does not want to grant free community college to all in order to raise the number of college graduates and create an educated workforce, but rather wants to “eliminate” private sector programs in order to make way for “another layer of government schools.”

“It’s the same old stuff from the president,” he said, “which is, ‘Our schools don’t work, our schools don’t function to educate our children enough so they can get a job, so we’re going to bring in another layer of government schools to try to do this and you’re going to pay for it.’”

Uh, Rick…community colleges already exist. Hundreds and hundreds of them. And they’re already government-run and already paid for by tax dollars. There is no “another layer,” that layer is already there. Maybe you could try googling it sometime.
