    There is nothing like starting off life deep in debt. The average student is drowning.

    Except the life guard isn’t sleeping. They know the college kids are drowning, but they don’t care.

    Change that to House GOP and you’ve got it right.

    Well, one at least.

    “U.S. Rep. George Miller, D-California, announced today he is collecting signatures from Democrats and Republicans, seeking to force the chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee to take immediate action on his bill to curb the rate hike.”

    I find these comments rather confusing. Aren’t these the same folks who are always complaining about government spending too much and Obama taxing too much? If you want Uncle Sam to bank roll higher education, then the big bad government will have to raise YOUR taxes! But if if’s some pork project “they” want, then “they” start whining to Uncle Sam to go into further debt to support it! I find that attitude very strange….!

    Education in the U.S. is costing far too much and in the future will pay the price in world competitiveness. They probably already are paying the price as U.S. students are falling behind world standards in many subjects and overall educational qualifications.
    Cost comparison Canada: My three kids all have degrees and graduated with almost no debt. They got summer jobs, I provided accommodation at home, and I kicked in a modest amount in assistance, probably less than $10,000 for the three. They are now all productively employed.
