Fox News Hosts Hate Obama's Free College Plan, And Their Reasoning Is Painful

During the State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Obama proposed a plan to offer two years of free community college to U.S. students.

While others have critiqued the president's plan for potentially high costs to states and unlikelihood of increasing the graduation rate, "Fox & Friends" co-host Steve Doocy had a slightly different complaint.

"Here's the thing that really bothers me about this," Doocy said Wednesday morning. "I made my final two college tuition payments about two weeks ago!"

And according to co-host Brian Kilmeade, this whole free college thing is just pointless anyway. I mean, it's not that hard to just pay for it. Right?

"If you want to go to college, you can get a part-time job and make that tuition payment even without a loan, which available to you, and even without grants," he said.

Sure. When you find a part-time job we can do on top of a full class load that will let us afford tuition out of pocket, let us know.
