    Tuition is rising because of the law of supply and demand. In the last 10 years, the desire to see everybody get a college education has forced way too much tax payer money into the system. As long as tax payers are footing the bill, the university has plenty of applicants with plenty of money. They can raise tuition because they know the government will equally raise assistance. And way too way people suck up that free money for a year, maybe two and drop out because they should not have been there to begin with.

    The end result is only the very needy and very well off can afford to go to college. The middle class tax payer gets left holding the bill once again while they struggle to pay tuition or rack up debt.

    Now before anybody jumps on me about that being the only way some people will have a chance, yes, I agree with that. Good students with lesser means should be able to get some help but the amount of tax money in the system right now is ridiculous.

    This is yet another example of the decades-long transfer of wealth from the working and middle classes to the wealthiest few.
