Free College

In an effort to pick up Bernie Sanders supporters, Mrs Clinton is now proposing tuition - free college education.  
Her platform lists a formula that says that by 2021, families with income up to $125,000 will pay no tuition at in-state four-year public colleges and universities. And from the beginning, every student from a family making $85,000 a year or less will be able to go to an in-state four-year public college or university without paying tuition.
That sounds like a good thing.  
Nobody is against education, right?
But -  
Officials from the Department of Defense have consistently testified before Congress that the G. I. Bill, which provides free education to Veterans, is an invaluable tool necessary in the effort to recruit members of our military.  It is probably the largest single inducement for young people considering joining up.
The Democrats plan for free college for all would almost certainly require the re-institution of a military draft.
