Minn. Colleges Impacted by State Budget Shortfall

Dec 15, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KAAL-TV Austin

Minnesota finance officials say they are borrowing earlier and more extensively from one state higher education system and will pay another system late to keep the state budget from going into the red.

It is against our free market system to artificially subsidize these union liberal schools. If they can't stay open on what they bring in for revenue, they should be boarded up. This is more proof that unions ruined American Education!

Dems want to add even more to our deficits by spending and spending without a care for the consequence.

We need common sense like Palin to bring back sanity to Government. BHO has tripled the deficit and we now have 10% unemployment-the spendin ain't workin.

Rage at UC fee hike in L.A., Berkeley protests

"Although the protesters emphasized the impact the new fees would have on the neediest students, about 30 percent of undergraduates will pay no fees at all. That's because the university's Blue and Gold program covers tuition, though not living expenses, for students from families earning up to $70,000 - just raised from $60,000 "




I'll bet not one of these little socialist students would agitate to reduce college costs. They just don't want to pay for it. Here is a simple solution for CA colleges, 20% staff cut, and 20% pat cut for those that remain.


As long as the government is subsidizing the cost of a college education the cost will continue to rise.
Anytime the government distorts the free market, prices go up.It's not rocket science.

good luck

There are too many State colleges, junior colleges, and vo-techs in Minnesota. They should close half and consolidate to save tax payers some money.
