    I agree I think Warren Buffett says a lot of really non-intelligent things for a guy as smart as he is.
    I just thought it was funny in this case as the left parrots this guy around left and right.

    now he is saying the opposite that we shouldn't raise the minimum wage that it hurts workers. basically the opposite of what we have been
    hearing.

    Why? Your side controls education. Your side gets the money from the teachers unions that keep crappy teachers employed. Your side despises school choice. Its really sad.

    Liberals need to apologize for turning the best school system in the world into the 30th....its pathetic how far we have fallen.

But they'll also graduate with the capability to service that debt AND to have a long higher paying career.
    Yes. Because that is exactly how it works

    pretty much it right there. if everyone has it then it loses value.
    already companies are seeking master degrees over 4 years because there are so many 4 year degree's flooding the market.
    you can still get good job with a 4 year but you need something for you to stand out.

    How is something that so fundamental to society, be unaffordable to so many? Why should education be freely provided only to some certain point? Why should education be something that only some can obtain but others cannot?

    Liberals should be apologizing for what they have done to schools in this country.
    It "failed"? I mean I want to a public school... How'd it "fail" me?

    "Investing" in education is the leading cause of college tuition inflation.
