Here, I'll help you out:
"Free education" means if you're too poor to owe taxes, it's completely free. If you owe enough to pay taxes, you pay for it indirectly from a percentage of your taxes. If you're wealthy, you may pay more for it indirectly than you would if you paid just for yourself privately, to offset the costs of others. Wealthy people tend to be against this. Everyone else generally sees it as a good thing.
Still not "free" just because someone else is footing the bill... so helping.. not-so-much.
But more to your latter point, liberals are good at spending other peoples money to make themselves feel good.
Socialism is great until you run out of other peoples money to spend..
