I know why tuition costs what it does. It's too bad that so, so many think that it's due to capitalism.

The government makes money on loans; at least thats the simplified reason (unless you know something I don't, which we'd all appreciate if you'd share). So, yeah, the reason is basically the exact opposite of capitalism.

And that's why there are no congressional hearings. They'd have to admit to their own corruption, which isn't their strong suit.

Obviously, your sides ideology in practice doesn't work.
LOL. My side? ideology? And what part has been put into practice?

I find your comment to be ludicrous. Im not a "side" Children pick sides in games. As a adult I recognize the complexity of things. No politician will represent my "side" 100%. Do you honestly think Romney would have lowered inequality? LOL. He laughed about how he didn't represent 47% of us.

Stop picking sides. Start asking questions, and making judgement calls. Start talking about how if we don't change the direction of our country we're going to end up eventually electing a extremist that does something, and understand why thats bad.
