Obama's college tuition plans face tough fight

Washington (CNNMoney) - In his re-election campaign, President Obama says he wants to cut the growth of college tuition in half over the next decade.

But he faces hurdles toward that goal over which he has little control, even if he wins Nov. 6: dire state budgets and a gridlocked Congress.

    Just replace all the congress animals. These guys do not need you educated, it as simple as this. They want you to drop out, and be a dope, and go to Iran War and die. Not their five sons. Any time, I am supporting Obama. Period. Obama12.
    PS: America, If you have guts, buy only Made in USA stuff. Greed us hurting this nation.

    Those who want to attend college have to pay for it. That is how it WORKS!

    The question is WHERE DOES ALL THE MONEY GO??? Add up the tuition for all the students, all the money the feds give to the schools, all the money the states give, the money the boosters give, the money they get from their sports programs, etc etc...AND YET THE TUITION STILL GOES UP AT INCREDIBLE RATES YEAR AFTER YEAR. Before we throw more money into the system, MAYBE someone should look into where all the money goes.
