NEW YORK (CNNMoney)— Free education “for those willing to work for it.”

That’s what President Obama said he would like to see in an announcement the White House posted to Facebook and Vine on Thursday.

The president made the announcement from Air Force One as he left Detroit on his way to Tennessee and Arizona.

“Everyone understands that education is the key to success for our kids in the 21st century, but what we also understand is that it’s not just for kids. We also have to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages and better benefits,” the president said.

More details about the president’s proposal will be announced on Friday in Tennessee when he addresses the state’s education reform.

    There’s no such thing as “free”. Taxpayers, bend over and get ready to foot the bill for another government handout, courtesy of Barack Obama.

  • Fuck you

    XD Complain about how you have to pay for it via taxes all you want you stupid fuckers. You pay taxes no matter if Obama is here or not! The only people who hate Obama is the rich! Who would not have to pay shit and get paid more if it were not for Obama. Rich people, fuck you. You can give those kids who need college and food and a home. Stop being so fucking greedy you dick suckers! XD

    I crunched the numbers and this will cost the taxpayer’s only around 35,000,000,000 a year. Or as the POS in OUR Whitehouse called it FREE………
