Biden Warns Progressive Lawmakers That Free Community College Probably Won’t be in Spending Bill

Legal Insurrection: Little by little, the wheels are falling off the Democrats’ massive spending bill. In the most recent change, Biden informed progressive Democrats that free community college probably won’t make the cut.

This is an issue that senators like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have been pushing for years. They are not going to be happy about this.

CNN reports:

Biden discusses $1.9 trillion top line for economic package and tells Democrats free community college is out

President Joe Biden informed House progressives Tuesday afternoon that the final bill to expand the social safety net is expected to drop tuition-free community college, a major White House priority, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

And the President discussed a $1.75 to $1.9 trillion price tag for the sweeping spending package, according to a person familiar with the talks. While the number is not finalized, it is far closer to West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin’s $1.5 trillion top line than progressives’ number, which was $3.5 trillion…

Biden had called for making two years of community college free — a long-time priority for many Democrats. Some progressives — like Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats — have pushed for even more, calling for making tuition free at public, four-year colleges. more

  6. I’m confused – why the need to remove anything from the spending bill? I heard that it was free because it had already been paid for.

    What gives?

  7. GOOD! I’m wasn’t able to attend college as I didn’t stay in school. I didn’t sweat my tail at work starting in ’65 to get where you fly around easy on hard working people’s coattails! As we said when we were younger when people wanted to do something stupid. “It ain’t that kind of party!”
