Bush Will Sign Student Aid Bill

It's official, folks: The rules are changing.

At a press conference with students on Capitol Hill today, Rep. George Miller (D-CA), the chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, announced that the Bush administration plans to sign the College Cost Reduction and Access Act into law if the Congress approves it as anticipated.

Today’s news is proof that elections can make a difference. Last November, Democrats promised to make college more affordable for every qualified student, and with this bill we are making good on that promise. This is not only an exciting day for students and families, but also for the direction of our country.

Well, education isn't necessarily cheaper for students... but more money is being paid by the government (aka tax payers(aka me)). I wonder if the proposed increases in the Pell Grant are going to outpace tuition growth?

Unfortunately this going one step futher in insulating students from realizing the cost of their education, which will encourange even more borrowing - and ultimately - more debt.

When will people learn that throwing money at a problem isn't always the solution? Sometimes... every once in a while... it pays off to treat the problem rather than the symptoms.
