President Barack Obama is proposing to provide a free community college education as an entitlement to millions of students at a cost of $60 billion over 10 years.

Obama unveiled the plan today at a community college in Tennessee, a state that provides free tuition for community and technical colleges for high school graduates and served as the inspiration for the administration.
