Supporting access to education doesn’t make you progressive. Who actually wants to make access to education harder? Probably no one. What makes you progressive is if you make the logical leap to “education is good” to “therefore we should get the state to hold guns to people’s heads to make it accessible”.
Same thing with PPACA… access to healthcare is good, right? No one disagrees. You become “progressive” when you make the logical leap from “healthcare is good” to “therefore we should force everyone to purchase insurance products that we approve of from corporations that we also approve of”.
I personally cannot find any support for these MEANS of achieving those ends in mormon doctrine.
