    “Now let’s see what ideas the other side comes up with.”

    No need to wait – “Spend more or you’re DENYING people an education!”

      You forgot “Racists!!!!!”

      • Anthony

        It’s called belief with a purpose (low plane of living, cultural isolation, and opportunistic cumulative labeling) underlying specific rationalization needs.

          I notice no mention of personal responsibility in there…what a coincidence…
          Or not…
          I believe you are through here

            What’s your real point my man? Who are you really opposed to? What is compelling your roiling antipathy? Whatever is amiss? What connections are you entwining? America invites all ostensibly. And yes, I am if one can be through with pettifogging then…

    Can we say, “bargaining chip”?

    • Anthony

      Funding Higher Ed is public policy worthy of non partisan democratic give and take but not bargaining chip for opportunistic exploitation.

      • Jim__L

        Incentivizing tuition bloat isn’t worthy public policy.

        There needs to be a debate about this on the national level. Trimming Pell grants is as good a way as any to start the debate.

        Besides, I have nothing against Congress insisting that it has power of the purse, against “mandatory” spending levels.

        • Anthony

          Not about incentives of bloat because systemic bloat can be found… Equally, identifying a choice to start requires legitimate consideration of issue and its embedded interests. Nevertheless, Feed above provides scant information (there’s definitely no constitutional argument) and just an observation so for me on this I am through here.
