Clinton’s Free College Plan: How Would She Pay for It?

Hillary Clinton said during the debate that as president, tuition at public colleges and universities would be free for students from households earning up to $125,000, as part of a far-reaching $450 billion higher education plan.

So how would she pay for that?

Clinton’s campaign has said the candidate would reinstitute Ronald Reagan-era cuts on itemized tax deductions for high-income families. The Democratic nominee initially proposed a $350 billion plan, dubbed the New College Compact, that would provide money to states that guarantee “no-loan” tuition at four-year public universities and community colleges.
