Elizabeth Warren is running for the Senate against Scott Brown of Massachusetts.
She believes we need to spend more on education and admonishes Brown for taking the position that taxpayers should be getting their money's worth.
Paying Professor Warren is subtitled 'Scott Brown explains why college is less affordable':
"How refreshing to see a politician say that more money isn't always
the answer for American education. In Wednesday night's Massachusetts
debate, GOP Senator Scott Brown had the audacity to suggest that more
taxpayer subsidies for college education may simply transfer wealth to
colleges—and their faculty.
The fun began when Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, a law
professor at Harvard, attacked Mr. Brown for voting against the
umpteenth Senate bill to expand student-loan subsidies. According to the
New York Times, Mr. Brown responded that "she makes $350,000 to teach
one course" and received a no-interest loan from Harvard. This, he
added, is "one of the driving forces behind the high costs of
Rising federal subsidies have allowed colleges to raise their prices,
pocketing the increased aid that is allegedly intended to help
students. According to the College Board, average tuition and fees in
the last decade at private schools like Harvard surged a full 2.6% per
year faster than the general rate of inflation. Price hikes at public
universities have been worse—rising almost 6% per year faster than the
consumer price index.
Like health care and everything else that politicians decide to make
"affordable," higher education has become unbearably expensive. Kudos to
Mr. Brown for suggesting there may be a better way to make college
affordable, perhaps by requiring professors like Ms. Warren to spend
more time in the classroom."
Ms. Warren is all about saving the middle class and the educational system from Republican tightwads.
Is she working too hard and being underpaid at the same time?
I'll bet she thinks so. How dare we question how our taxpayer funds are spent by "public servants" like would-be Senator Warren.
And we'll never provide government bureaucrats with enough OPM to satisfy people like her.
In fact, anything less than everything she wants to spend won't be deemed to be "fair," regardless of whether any of it represents money well spent.
