  1. The reason college cost so much is that ”professors” like Elizabeth Warren (fake indian ) get 400k a year to ”teach” (=indoctrinate) one class
    These schools should have their tax exempt status revoked.
    They have Billions in endowments and expect the plumbers and electricians to pay off the debt of irresponsible student college loan borrowers getting their useless degrees in humanities

  2. Survey:
    100% of Democrats keep voting into office the people who are driving the cost of education out of control… then they complain about the cost, confused as to why it is so high.
