Very few things in this life are actually free. I think what you mean is that somebody else should have to pay for college. That is an interesting sense of entitlement to other people's money.
It also devalues a college education for those who get one. You get out of your education what you put into it, and if you don't have to work for it, it doesn't mean as much for you.
I might not be in the states but I had to work my ass off in order to pay of college, and I had to sit by people tat had it all paid for.
There is that huge trend that show that in most (not all) cases the people who have to work for it value it more than the people who just have it given to them.
Also if my taxes were used fund everyone else's college education I would be mad. Because the value of the piece of paper you get at the end will mean nothing anymore.
