No.

Have your ever heard of the EPA, or federal college assistance programs ?

The expert opinions I've read give a tax overhaul plan clearing congress this year a 40% chance. From what I read, trump has a 0% success record this year on major legislation. Even if it passes , it may not pass with quick repeal of EV tax credit.

Have you ever heard of something called state and local government?

Why yes, I have.

I also happen to live in a rural, Repub politics dominated area with public education so poor the local students are mostly doomed to repeat the same menial job existence as their parents and the local economy goes nowhere. So even though the state of Colorado has some good public colleges the locals are ill-equipped to take advantage. Of the few that might escape the rut or improve the community, you want to make college too expensive for them.

Way to go, bozo

If you don't like the way things are in Colorado why don't you either work to change them or move to some place more to your liking? Apparently somebody is content or they would be voting for different people. If you can't influence things at the state and local level how can you expect to affect things in Washington? That's how this country was designed to operate, push decision making down.
The problem with runaway college costs is the same as runaway healthcare costs, once consumerism is removed and it becomes "free" (or worse yet people are enticed to borrow for it with easy credit) it's Katie bar the door, providers have no incentive to keep costs in line and deliver value. There's no way college should cost anywhere near what people are being told they have to pay for it.

What is apparent, is that you do not have a clue about rural America. They vote on wedge issues like guns and abortions, fear of change, and racism; and they devalue education -- just like you. They are FAR from content, and it shows up in alcoholism, illicit drug abuse, obesity, depression and violence. They vote Trump because he tells them someone else is to blame for their unemployment or menial wage.

You mistake impotence for preference.

Why, I bet the capitalist free market will jump in any day now and fill that vacuum. Any day now ...

Have you noticed the state of public education in the Southern states, Florida included ?

Ripoff online "universities" like "The University of Phoenix" have been competing with public colleges and private brick and mortar universities for decades. They take billions in student loans, and in return students get a lifetime of debt and little more. I'm sure "Trump University" must ring a few bells...?

Our state and local government look at how each household votes and gerrymanders 40,000 liberal households into a strange snake like district then groups 20,000 republicans into another snakelike district.

The you can’t win scenario plays out locally each year.
