The problem that has to be addressed is the money owed by people who have already graduated from college. I would be in favor of a government bailout of loans where what people owe would be cut in half but they would have to pay their half in 7 to 10 years. I believe that this would solve the problem and alleviate a lot of financial stress on families.

there is no reason (other than pure greed) for colleges to charge the fees they do...

but, who's going to attack liberal academia ...?
surely not Obama's lapdog media!

It's called MATH.
Like Elijah Cummings bragged, "For every black man to get a good job, unfortunately, a white man has to lose one."
The same applies to college. For every black to go for free, a whitey has to pay double,,,or triple.
It's Detroit in a nutshell.
"Ask not what your country can do for you"
"Ask what your country can do for the black man"
Simple. Don't go to a college that shakes you down for "diversity" goals....and stop complaining about Blacks.

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.

Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years:

-Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can be disappeared without a jury

-Out of control (((Crony Capitalism)))-government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not free market eg. Solyndra, GM, GE, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, Cancelling Keystone Pipleline, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags like Aurora CO to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

-Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

-A(((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)

-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the 2nd debate))) weak affirmative action President

- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not offering true immigration reform

Obama's 2nd Term

(((BenghaziGate))) Obama lied, our troops died -bigger than Watergate, this is outright treason -funny how Obama threw Clinton under the bus

(((IRS Gate))) Uses IRS storm troopers to go after political enemies by targeting foes for audits and leaking classified tax information -both felonies

(((Mediagate-Boston CIA Gate))) Trying to chill journalists by tapping their phone conversations -even spying on Associated Press and other old liberal allies

(((NSA/PRISM Spy Gate))) Persecuting whistleblowers like Snowden and now bumping off journalists who expose illegal phone/net wiretapping on public

(((Holdergate))) Is Holder is supposed to supervise all these hearings? He should be in jail over Oklahoma city, Fast and Furious, and Wall Street corruption. Laws without enforcement are useless.

What the hell does it take to get impeached or is Obama now a bonafide dictator?

Great news! Tuition rates can continue to skyrocket. No money down, no payments for 6 years. Keep the interest rate and monthly payments low enough and they will buy. A big raise for all tenured professors.
