Tennessee became the first state to make community college free for all adults. This will start fall of 2018. Good idea?

What I understand is that there are cities that have done this, but not whole states.

Great idea. Haslam hasn't been the best governor, but this is definitely a good first step.

Who's going to pay for said free college? Tennessee tax payers?

It's an investment in educating its population. It pays back in spades.

That's not how taxes work. You don't get to pick and choose what suits your individual needs and desires.

Really? I'm surprised that such a backward state would legislate a smart educational program.

Lol, what an asshole. Puts down an entire state even when they are doing something positive. I hope you drive your car into a power transformer.
