During a CBS ’60 Minutes’ Interview, Biden Claims ‘Free College’ Would Cost $150 Billion But His Staff Said He Misspoke

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

During an interview with “60 Minutes,” Joe Biden claimed that free college would cost $150 billion, but his campaign later retracted the statement, alleging Biden misspoke, according to The Daily Caller.

“I can send every single qualified person to a four-year college in their state for $150 billion. I can make sure every single person who qualifies for community college can go and we still have a lotta money left over,” he said.

“Mr. Biden’s staff told us he misspoke and that the cost of free public college could be twice as much as he said.”

The COST of FREE college.

That’s a six syllable contradiction right there.

So it’s free, but some corporations and/or people have to pay for it… perhaps I missed something, or it’s physically impossible for anything to be free without someone footing the bill.

No, no, that would be too sensible.

Sigh, at this rate, I could write a book about all the times Biden misspoke (or in other words, being fed lines and reading them wrong) but I’d be afraid of decimating all the trees in order to keep up with the babble.

From The Daily Caller:

Under Biden’s plan, the corporate tax rate would be raised from 21% to 28% and he would impose a 21% country-by-country foreign minimum tax and a 15% minimum tax on companies’ global book income.

However, questions have been raised as to whether or not Biden’s tax plan would raise as much money as he estimates. The non-partisan Tax Policy Center (TPC) updated an analysis of Biden’s plans this month, noting that Biden’s plan would raise $2.4 trillion over the next decade. The TPC originally estimated Biden’s plan would raise $4 trillion.
