Times have changed, taxpayers should no longer be burdened with someone's college education. The UC system should be privatized and let the parents of these college students pay for their education. They can borrow the money but the idea of ripping of the taxpayer's to fund the educational system is no longer a viable option.

So, residents pay taxes that are promised to go towards education for their children, INCLUDING higher education.
Government siphons this money to pay for entitlement programs designed to get them re elected.
UC system starts taking more out of state students so they get more money.
Illegals demand a free ride or discounted tuition.

State citizens pay taxes and their kids have less chance of getting in.
US citizens pay out of state tuition.
Trespassers want a free ride.

What a great state of affairs. How about NO non-residents are allowed in to state schools until all academically eligible residents have a place?

While students suffer higher fees, U.C. employees are making a ton, and the vast majority of high dollar retirees haven't retired yet.....but soon.
It will get much worse before it gets better.
There will be no end to the state's "fee" hikes, while average Californian's incomes are dropping every year.
