In One Eye

Needless to say, I'm not happy about this.
A change in the way the federal government calculates financial aid could result in middle-class Americans paying more for college at a time when tuition costs are rising sharply.Middle and upper class taxpayers make additional payments to colleges in order to subsidize those less able to pay. I have no problems with this, but I've always thought that the additional monies paid should be thought of as a charitable contribution.
Of course, the plutocratic politicians would never support anything like this. A tax cut (on dividends no less) is much more to their liking.
