Presidential hopeful Klobuchar wants community college to be free but not four-year college

Presidential hopeful Klobuchar wants community college to be free but not four-year collegeU.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar wants to make community college and programs designed to teach technical trades free, but stopped short of joining fellow Democratic hopefuls in backing proposals that would make a four-year college degree free. Klobuchar, who has tried to embrace a moderate lane in the crowded Democratic presidential primary, has criticized some of her opponents, including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, for pledging to make four-year college degrees free and erasing student debt. “We have to make college more affordable — but I don’t think that rich kids should get a free four-year degree funded by the taxpayers,” Klobuchar said on Twitter in June after being asked in the first Democratic debate about her opposition to free college.
