Brian Kilmeade Says In State Texas Tuition "Basically Free"

Reported by Priscilla - November 1, 2011 -

Fox & Friends is an official Fox opinion show during which the curvy couch crew articulate all manner of opinion, some of which is different from those who don't reside in Foxworld. But I suppose it's not their fault. Take, for instance, Brian Kilmeade. Last week, Fox & Friends ran a segment with various stories related to those scary, evil "illegal aliens." In what seemed to be a contest for how many times the term "illegal aliens" was used, Kilmeade noted that while Rick Perry was criticized for the Texas policy of allowing instate tuition for undocumented immigrants, Mitt Romney is facing some heat over the Massachusetts health care plan which covers the undocumenteds. Kilmeade, in referencing the Texas tuition, said that it's "basically free." There are many Texas colleges and universities but the cheapest is Collin County Community College which charges $1180.00 for Texas residents. Instate tuition for the University of Texas at Austin is a pricier $7670. Neither of these sums is "basically free." I guess that if you live in Massapequa, a community where the median income is $107,181, your perspective might be a bit skewed?
