    That's nice and all, but doesn't answer the question.

    Yes, you should, I'd like to see your alternative.

    Your post is irrelevant to the topic. A reason oppose bad policy does not have to be supported by a good policy.

    In countries like Germany, professors and those in academics are considered civil servants, you can deduce how they are paid, and I should mention Germany and public and private universities.

    In a free market, nothing essential becomes overpriced to the point no one can afford it. It is only when the government steps in and pays for an essential product at whatever cost that the producer prices the product too high for the average person to afford it.

    If we want to help the middle class we get government out of the process so that the middle class can keep more of the money they earn. And if government isn't paying for it at highly inflated prices, the providers will find a way to make their products and services affordable to those who need them. Otherwise the providers make no money and there isn't any incentive to provide those products and services at all.

    So in that sense, however sincere or insincere the Republicans might be on any given day, they demonstrate that they do care about the middle class when they push for smaller, less expensive government, lowered deficits leading to a balanced budget, and allowing the free market to work.
    "I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it." --Benjamin Franklin 1776

    But the current system is destructive, the only thing viable to alleviate the problem is government intervention.

    So free education isn't really free. Sure took a long time to get that out of you.

    Spoken like a true socialist, but yet to be proven. And even if that's true, no one is required to vote for what they think is bad policy as an alternative.
