But I have no beef with UVA for doing it. Don't hate the player, hate the game. This is why I have the opinions I do about educational lending.
Can we please not have that argument in the C/O 2013 forum? Because if we do it will go like this:
Stringer Bell et. al: Government lending artificially inflates tuition, exacerbating the problem
Everyone else: But we couldn't afford to go to school without such programs
Stringer Bell: You don't have a right to go to school, though, and private lenders would pick up the slack at appropriate rates
Everyone else: But but WE LIKE GOV'T LENDING
ARGUMENT ENSUES UNTIL LOCK, THE END
