That would leave students still bearing the cost of room and board, which makes up more than half of the average $18,943 sticker price at a four-year public university, according to the College Board.” (“AP FACT CHECK: Clinton On Debt-Free College,” Associated Press, 9/26/16)

The only two we have show that he hasn’t paid a penny in taxes. ‘And yet he goes around talking about ‘make America great.’ You know, that means paying for our military. That means paying for our roads. That means paying for the V.A. That means a lot of things. And if you’ve got someone running for president who’s afraid to release his tax returns because it will expose the fact that he pays no federal income tax, I think that’s a big problem,’ Clinton said.” (C.
