Nearly all of the cost of tuition being paid so taxpayer subsidized students can enjoy years of leisure by attending Government colleges is paid by the increasingly impoverished California taxpaying minority. Students attending these Government in California schools pay only a token amount towards the actual cost.

Yet, this same hard working taxpaying minority must pay the same price at the pump as do taxpayer subsided students. Is this fair?

I would like to hear from anyone who can try to make an argument on this forum that this is fair. If not, please write a letter to Obama and demand he use his prestige, and the authority of his office, to create California equality and fairness at the pump. Let the word go forth from this time and this place.

What the hell is your problem? Most students today are studying our butts off trying to earn a degree, and are barely getting by on student grants and loans! You idiots are working full time, and can easily afford an extra buck or two to pay for your gasoline. We students cannot.

Uh, College Undergrad. I know your overpaid and under-worked taxpayer supported Government "professor" failed to inform you and your taxpayer subsidized fellow students of this fact, but those "grants and taxpayer funded guaranteed" - soon to be forgiven - "loans" are paid for with the hard earned tax money Government collects from the minority of Americans who pay taxes.

We will be the last if the government doesn't increase the amount of free student grants they give us. College tuition costs a fortune today!

Well if the government has any desire at all to see the next generation of young Americans obtain college degrees, they had better fork up! Most families and students could never afford to pay these insanely high tuition costs all by themselves.

Why would they do that???

It is much cheaper and the quality of work is better if they just import the educated for the jobs that MUST be done in the USA and export all jobs that can be done overseas.......

The economy slayer and liberals are more worried about teaching children how to have gay sex and fisting with his school czar kevin jennings..........LOL

So you would prefer that foreigners come here and take all our American jobs, and that the entire American population go on Welfare and Food Stamps? You must have spent your entire time in college smoking dope.

Either the government forces these schools to reduce their tuition, or they increase our student aid! There is no other way around it.

Well, if you want the unbelievably expensive taxpayer funded Government schools to reduce their tuition - most of which is paid for by the overburdened minority of Americans who pay taxes - then perhaps you should contact your overpaid and under worked taxpayer supported professors. It wouldn't hurt either, were you to contact some of your politician too, and demand they begin the process to thin out the herd.

Government schools are filled to overflowing with individuals who are no more qualified to receive an expensive taxpayer funded higher Government "education" than I am. Let's round them up and put 'em to work doing those things Americans don't "want" to do.

Well, with private schools the government will have no choice but to increase all our government grants and aid. When the economy turns around, the government will have loads of money to help us!

Hey clueless, high quality professors do not come cheap! If this country wants a college educated next generation, they will just have to find a way to pay for it.

Are you high? How are kids supposed to pay back these student loans, if all our good jobs are being shipped overseas? The only solution is that ALL of these student loans need to be forgiven, and a plan just for that is now being worked upon.

The hard working minority of Americans who pay taxes can no longer afford to support a voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer supported Thug people, even if they wanted to do so - and they do not - and still continue to shovel more and more money down into the bottomless $$$ Big School $$$ rat hole. One of the other must go. As long as millions of ever increasing numbers of "Black" babies are going to bed hungry every night, your self-serving position fails the moral test. Join with us. United we can end racism.

Don't be absurd, the Federal government can always find the money! If they can afford to waste trillions of taxpayer dollars on pointless foreign wars, they can certainly afford to spend a little towards the education of America's youth.
