It was a treat to have a producer from Stossel on the Fox Business Network call me last week asking for my help getting Senior Fellow Joy Pulllmann on the program to talk about education policy. Joy is great at making her point in television’s time-limited format, and we’re pleased she was able to do the program.
From The Federalist, a brief recap:
College tuition has increased by 400 percent over the last 40 years directly because of federal education subsidies, so Hillary Clinton’s plans for debt-free college will only further inflate that college bubble, said Joy Pullmann on John Stossel’s Fox Business Network show Friday.
“If we want to reduce college costs, what we should do is get the federal government out of the college game,” said Pullmann, The Federalist’s managing editor and a Heartland Institute education fellow. …
“Hillary Clinton has never seen a problem that she doesn’t think other people’s money and more paperwork won’t solve,” Pullmann said during a show dedicated to discussing both campaigns’ economic proposals.
The video isn’t embeddable, so watch Joy on Stossel at this link at The Federalist. She talks about Hillary’s bad ideas for “free college,” as well as ruinous plans to give the feds even more control over K-12 education.
