UC would lose $9 billion for research, healthcare, education if Trump cut federal funds - LA Times

It looks like California is very dependent on federal funding to their higher education campuses.

It is amazing how much of a welfare state higher education is also when one university system gets 9 billion dollars in federal welfare money.

It also reinforces the fact that higher education is in a massive bubble right now and is dependent on federal government to continue.

Cut it off.

If they want the university to be a political organization, that's fine, but not with public funds.

I don't understand it...why wasn't it cut like yesterday and the traiors hauled off to jail?

The dems are importing Muslims and illegals to garner their vote. Combine the Muslims, illegals, homosexuals and the ignorant dem stooges and they see the light at the end of the tunnel. The fascist dems are a sick bunch that will sell out the USA...just for a vote.

Any cutting needs to be done for a 2 year minimum and I mean right now. Don't screw with these idiots. Trump is a puss, they are lucky I'm not in charge...I go Philippino on them.

The "higher education system" is VERY dependent on federal money. And a great percentage of them are indeed just leftist think tanks and indoctrination institutions. Particularly in CA. It really shouldn't be the way of things to allow federal funds to be used in such a manner as CA universities do,and many others as well. I'm willing to bet a lot of fed funds has been diverted to ward cleaning up the messes these "protests" create. That, in addition to funding "studies" of very dubious value to anyone but the ones conducting them. Breeding habits of the little fly that eats coyote cookies and such, and of course lots of politically motivated stuff skewed toward leftist agendas.


If they had to fund all that bilge without our tax dollars, oh my. I can hear the howling about suppression of free thinking and ideas already. And if the messes from the resulting protests had to be cleaned up all on internal school funds it rises to a din.

Only Trump would be stupid enough to cut off federal money that is used, in the UC system, for scientific and medical research. Including the Cancer Moon Shot.

That is what was said, when we told you Trump would be the Republican Nominee.

Tell Trump he cannot accomplish that and he seems to be determined to prove them wrong.

Use and transfer that funding to another place of higher education, without social justice and gender studies.

I will admit that I've seen funding used for good things at one CA university. UC Davis .In both medical and veterinary sciences. If I had a choice of hospital I could go to right now for help with the debilitating conditions plaguing me, I wouldn't hesitate to put that place on my short list.
