    Make it cheaper and affordable. These Universities are making education as Business. Shame, no ethics. University education should be affordable to all the American Citizens. Tuition is way up. Greed. Greed, and Greed.

    Everything you want must be at a reduced cost and raise taxes on the rich.

    You might have a case if our government would lean how to spend within their budget and NOT GIVE EVERYTHING AWAY we are not all equal and you shouldn't try and play Robin Hood.

    The Government doesn't know how to run a business but they continue to want more money we don't have to spend and tell our business sector what they need to do.

    Obama could tax every rich person 100% of what they make and still wouldn't put a dent in our debt.

    You and your glories leadership team must stop all the spending you do and learn how to spend what we have and not what you want.

    You just don't get it all your expenses are paid for at our expense try and learn how to lead by example but I don't think you know how to lead anything but tax and spend.
