Neil Cavuto Schools Student Who Wants Free College

Keely Mullen, one of the lead organizers of the Million Student March, spoke with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business on Thursday saying that “[t]he movement, the Million Student March, is a movement for a more equitable and fair system of education,” noting that others should have to pay for college students’ schooling.

Neil Cavuto had just one question for the young college student: “And how’s that going to be paid?”

“The movement, the Million Student March, is a movement for a more equitable and fair system of education, as opposed to the really corporate model that we have right now,” says Keely Mullen. “So, the three core demands of the national day of action are: (1) free public college, (2) a cancellation of student debt, and (3) a $15 an hour minimum wage for people who work on the campus.”

“And how’s that going to be paid?” asked Cavuto.

“Umm, great question,” said Keely Mullen. “Uh, I mean, you know, so. I’m not sure if you’re talking on like a national level or particular schools. I can sort of touch on both.”

“Well, if you want all that stuff, someone has to pick up the tab,” said Cavuto. “Who would that be?”

“Umm, the one percent of people in society that are hoarding the wealth and really sort of causing a catastrophe that students are facing. I mean, we have a relationship right now where one percent of the population own more wealth than the 99 percent combined … .”

Cavuto then pressed in further, asking the college student Mullen practical questions regarding the feasibility of the Million Student March’s ideals. Needless to say, Cavuto seemed unmoved by her answers.
