    It’s Free, It’s Free, It’s Free!

    AEI’s James Pethokoukis looks at plans by progressives to help get young voters to the polls in 2016. How about “free” college for everyone?! This is exactly the kind of proposal which should make people skeptical of government. That’s right, make no demands on the higher education industry to…

    Think it’s rhetoric when we talk about the job-killing impact of over-regulation? It’s not, and here’s a prime example. Thanks to the EPA’s rules, power plants are closing.
