Worried about student loans? Mitt Romney thinks you should just find a cheaper college.

American Bridge, a Democratic-aligned super PAC, released the video above Tuesday morning that includes a sequence of Romney’s comments on education policy.

“My best advice is find a great institution of higher learning. Find one that has the right price - shop around,” Romney says in one of the clips that was shot in a Youngstown, OH townhall.

“In America this idea of competition - it works and don’t just go to the one that has the highest price, go to one that has a little lower price where you can get a good education and hopefully you’ll find that and don’t take on too much debt and don’t expect the government to forgive the debt that you take on. I know it would be popular for me to stand up and say Im going to give you government money to make sure to pay for your college but Im not going to promise that.”

An extended version of the video is below:
