Are government subsidies really the reason why college tuitions are skyrocketing? Is the government really that stupid?

yes, i dont understand why liberals keep thinking that everyone should go to college, they're so stupid can't they see it's not working? not everyone needs to go to college, which is why it shouldn't be free. or just have scholarship based for the few geniuses that can benefit from college

no, its for all the reasons you listed, plus any boomer who didnt go to college watched as the nerds they bullied became the new 1% so they all became obsessed with having smart kids who go to college. you can be happy knowing almost all boomers are going to hell.

boomers never experienced hardship. they were born into a world dominated by the US, because everything else was destroyed in WW2 lol. it wasnt until the late 1980s, when boomers already had established, entrenched careers, and near total control, that the rest of the world actually recovered.

Government subsidies ruin everything. You can trace every problem with the US Bank to free government money. The whole reason the healthcare industry is fucked right now is because of Medicare. It was government price setting and insurance subsidies for boomers that caused the entire industry to balloon it off control

Feels like you need an entire generation of boomers to die off before being able to fix it.
