Nice to see others are noticng that there is a pattern to the RWs behavior and it isl direted at creating a feudal society here in America.
From WWII until the early 1980's, a college education was affordable to EVERYONE because it could be paid for with a summer job ad 10-20 hours a week while in school - student debt was near ZERO and the education loans that were held had amazingly low interest rates. This was because around 70% of colege operating costs were covered by Government Then Reagan eliminated the top dozen tax brackets, eliminated virtually all the midle class deductions and killed Revenue Sharing. Now Government provides 20% of college operating costs and the difference was passed to the students tuition, and only the scions of the Uberrich can attend without taking on crushing debt.
RWs rant that its the fault of the colleges because they increased their overhead costs, but that's because they must attract those Uberrich spawn who do not need financial aid and those kids demand accomodations just like their vacation spas provide. Also Government replaced funds for colleges with mandates to make all the buildings handicap accessable WITHOUT any funds to make that happen and colleges are expected to provide many other services to support disadvantaged students that were not required 30 years ago. Now the increased accessibility is a good thing - the refusal of RW politicians to provide funding for this improvement is not.
