From last night's debate I heard Romney say this:

"When I was governor of Massachusetts, to get a high school degree, you had to pass an exam. If you graduated in the top quarter of your class, we gave you a John and Abigail Adams scholarship, four years tuition free in the college of your choice in Massachusetts, it’s a public institution.

I want to make sure we keep our Pell grant program growing. We’re also going to have our loan program, so that people are able to afford school."

College would be more affordable if these grants and free tuition deals were eliminated. These politicians do not appear to grasp this fact. Provide grants and free tuition and the colleges simply ratchet up their tuition amounts. This is a distortion of the free market and is a no-brainer.
