Was struck by this comment:
Without subsidized education for students not to mention the funds for research and development of technologies our modern economy would be... well not very modern (and we would have lost every war post-WWII).“To call us state universities is an interesting use of the term,” Cox said, adding that the amount of state funding for UC’s budget is 17 percent and dropping.
At what point is a state school no longer a state school? How much of a subsidized education is "too socialist" for the tastes of GOP primary voters? Seeing as how the bulk of those voters are recipients of Nanny State Socialism at its worst(best) should we ask for our money back for all those years of free-riding?
