Comments on: Rich kids pushed to pay bigger share for college http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/2011/09/22/rich-kids-pushed-to-pay-bigger-share-for-college/ Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:27:18 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: PapaDisco http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/2011/09/22/rich-kids-pushed-to-pay-bigger-share-for-college/comment-page-1/#comment-8169 Sun, 25 Sep 2011 05:50:38 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-money/?p=19867#comment-8169 This article completely misses the most important point: how the hell does the university system justify their outrageous price increases?

Both healthcare and college have grossly outstripped all other sectors for price increases over the last two decades. Healthcare we all know is screwed up, but at least it can make an argument that technology has played a part. What’s ‘College’s’ excuse? If you raise your prices consistently faster than inflation in the country then you’d better have a damn good reason.

Mom forking up all the tuition and book costs doesn’t exactly relate to the real issue. thousands of upper middle class youths who’s parents got absolutely hammered by the housing bubble are forced to come up with all the money for school. working full time and going to school full time might be the second hardest thing to do in this country besides raising kids which parents don’t take seriously any more. While these parents spent hundreds of thousands on taxes so that people could take advantage of the system, go to school for free, and in some cases even get paid for it, poor little johnny is forking up all his money and putting himself in debt just to better himself. It makes zero sense to punish kid’s because there parent decided to be productive members of society.

quit crying if your poor and do something
