It doesn't seem to occur to them that short of being absolutely broke with no income or assets, financial aid comes in the form of loans, and most of those are unsubsidized, so increasing financial aid tends to come in the form of loans.

The only thing being impoverished changes is that it is more in subsidized loans than unsubsidized. :P (and the option of work/study - but the student has to find a work study job on their own, and they make the offer for work-study to way more students than there are job openings)
