Charles Krauthammer blasted President Obama’s speech on college affordability today, deriding the increase in regulation his proposed policies would bring.
“[I]s the federal government not intrusive enough in all other areas of our life and now it’s going to regulate graduation rates?” Krauthammer said on Special Report.
In a speech earlier in the day, President Obama proposed a new government system that would rate colleges on many factors, including average tuition and graduation rates. Krauthammer accused the president of wanting to nationalize higher education and said he was skeptical of the plan.
“I’m not sure it’s a good idea. I think there are things that ought to be organic and independent and higher education is one of them,” Krauthammer said.
