Democratic Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley have proposed making college education free for all U.S. citizens, a model that is wildly popular in most European countries. This idea is also wildly popular among college students and recent graduates who are crippled by student loan debt.

But the Republican Party has a few ideas of their own to help students pay for college. Led by Marco Rubio, Republicans have proposed doing away with the federal student loan system, and replacing it with a model that would essentially turn college students into banking commodities.

Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
