President Barack Obama led a town hall at Ivy Tech community college Friday, Feb. 6. He discussed his new budget proposal, which includes plans to make two-years of community college free to every American who maintains a 2.5 grade point average and meets attendance requirements. “This is not two years of free goofing off,” Obama said. He also took quetsions from audience members, which addressed such varied topics as his basketball skills — ”My game’s a little broke; I’ve been a little busy,” he said — to his number one priority for the remainder of term, which is to ensure wages are going up.
