In Ohio Monday, Mitt Romney said that students are "pulling back" from President Obama and predicted that Obama will try to win students by promising "a lot of free stuff," reports ABC News.
Romney said that the answer to financing higher education "is not to say, 'Let’s have the federal government give unlimited loans, no interest to everybody who wants them.'”
“By the way, you’re going to hear that," Romney said. “In an effort to try to get them engaged, he’s going to promise to give a lot of free stuff to them. And to say, 'I’ll pay for your education,' or 'I’ll get rid of the loans.'”
Romney suggested he would try to lower tuition costs by increasing competition between universities. Romney has said he supports an extension of the subsidized government student loan program currently pending in Congress.
