Sorry, Kathi. I misspoke. I meant to say "should not subsidize people going to university at all." Funding to those institutions isn't the point. The notion that "everyone should be able to go to college" and all that nonsense and all the scholarships, particularly ones that have no merit base to them, and ones that have ANY condition that isn't merit, creates artificial demand, and since everyone has a degree, the degree becomes more and more worthless.
And considering how much everyone gripes about how much publics schools suck, I wouldn't be entirely opposed to it.
The government shouldn't subsidize education at all. It's inflationary to the degrees themselves, and further, it creates artificial demand, and thus, higher tuition at the expense of the middle class.
My stance on the gays doesn't change my opinion on mediocre chicken sandwiches.
