Think about it - what would happen if a college genuinely couldn't find enough students who could afford it? They would be forced to lower tuition, or close their doors. So long as enough students are willing to go into long-term debt to get an education, and federal, state and local governments keep throwing ever-larger amounts at financial aid, there is no downward pressure on higher education prices.- Jim Geraghty

 Market pressures forcing a prices that are closer to what they "should" be...that's crazy talk...oh wait, that's how we run the rest of the our economy...perhaps if the goverment stopped subsidizing education the prices might actually return to something people can afford.

 (everyday I'm glad my wife didn't finish her degree, she'd be making the same money, and we'd have 4 times the debt...is that evil of me?)
