Mark - My problem is with the "holier-than-thou" attitude espoused, not so much with the person. Anyone is free to live their life anyway they see fit and to pay any ridiculous amount to send their child to school if they want to. However, why is my child any less deserving of financial aid (or subsidized loans), because my husband and I go to work every day,and saved money to send our son to a decent school, than the kid whose parents are junkies or just idiots who never saved any money?? I am sick-to-death of the liberal, hippie-dippie crap that gets spouted anytime anybody tries to legally get what they're entitled to. I pay plenty of taxes, and if I can get any financial aid for my kid, I'm going to take it.
