Board of Regents approves another huge increase

This week's Board of Regents 8-1 tuition vote pushes the cost of tuition at AZ Universities past $4,000 on an annualized basis. Add this year's increase to last years nearly 40% increase, and in-state tuition has gone up over $1,400 in the last two years alone.

For anyone who has college-age children, this should be a wake-up call about Bush's so-called "tax cuts". Did your taxes go down by $1,400 per child? No? What Bush's "Federal Revenue Starvation Diet" (TM) really amounts to is a way of hiding huge tax increases on the middle class by transferring the bite to State services. Retail psychologists would call it, "the old bait and switch." Apparently, the old dog still hunts.
