WATCH: Joy Behar says she supports free college — but not for future Tucker Carlsons

The ladies of The View collectively expressed their support for forgiving all student debt on Tuesday, telling viewers that large amounts of debt are even following people all the way to their earthly demise.

“It goes with you to the grave,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said of the “crippling student debt.”

“You should be born with the guarantee of higher education if you want it,” she further proclaimed.

Co-host Joy Behar, however, felt the government may need to take a more strategic approach.

“I think that we need to target it a little bit,” she claimed. “I dont wanna subsidize somebody who’s going to go to college, no debt, and then become a hedge funder or Steve Bannon or Tucker Carlson.”

“But if you’re going to work for UNICEF, if you’re going to work for Doctors Without Borders, if you’re going to become a social worker or a teacher or something of that ilk, yes, then I’m happy for it,” Behar continued.

“Why are we not investing in our own people?” co-host Sarah Haines chimed in.

Haines suggested that the United States should use loan forgiveness for those in the public sector as a means of incentivization.

“It is shameful to do this in the United States,” Goldberg added.

According to co-host Sunny Hostin, President Joe Biden may be making a decision regarding student debt in the next few weeks.

“You talk about ‘People can’t get gas, they can’t buy food, they can’t put their children through any kind of college’ — that’s because they’re paying off these freaking student debts,” Goldberg then told the audience.

She further suggested that the government consider getting rid of interest payments as a starting point.
