Given the amount of doctors and nurses needed in America, wouldn't it make more sense to make medical school free so we can get more trained professionals in the health industry? What is keeping the government from subsidizing medical universities to support students who want to take care of others?

So that they can become another useless plastic surgeon on the taxpayer dime? If there was some type of service requirement for X number of years in areas where they are needed I would have no problem with subsiding their schooling.

All public schools should be free and very well funded as well.
The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

No. People should pay something into it. Otherwise it will just attract leeches.
So much of the tragedy in human history can be explained by man's attempts to kill Cain.

Leeches typically don't work their asses off and get good enough grades to get into a quality medical school.

Any state funded school should be free. The only barrier to entry should be academic success, and the only fees should be room/board.
Please don't be creepy...

This is why people are against it TC. "Give a inch and they'll take a mile" is true.

Voted No b/c there's people who get the degree but leave the field so the taxpayer investment ends up being wasted, but this would be an acceptable compromise.

Especially the lower paid but needed fields like general practitioner.
If it was like... a 20 year service agreement to work in the field, and if you leave it or leave to work in another country before that time is up, you're on the hook for a prorated amount of the student debt remaining (like if you left after 10 years, you'd owe half of it...with interest), that'd work for me.
