President Barack Hussein Obama tweeted earlier today that he is making college more affordable in many ways, one of which is "double funding for Pell Grants." But is it helpful to students to be taxed by the government and then given back that money, as a gift of sorts, for the schooling that many times is too expensive regardless?
Perhaps President Obama could lower gas prices, allowing students to pay less for gas and more on college tuition. Or perhaps President Obama could stop using tax dollars (paid by college students) to travel and indirectly campaign for the next election. Maybe it is possible that President Obama could take fewer vacations and play less golf on the tax payers (college students) dime. Thus, giving struggling college students more money for their college tuition. These are a few ideas that could be a partial solution to the rising prices of higher education.
