Issue Analysis: The Fight to Make the Public University System Work for Students

Over the last few decades, the cost of higher education in the United States has grown at a rate outpacing inflation. According to Department of Education statistics, the average cost of an education at a four year university has gone up by 34 percent over the last decade.  Taxpayers are also footing the growing bill for higher education. Every year federal and state governments spend tens of billions of taxpayer dollars on direct grants and payments to individual colleges and universities.

Cracks in the Ceiling: The Real Issue Behind the Debt Limit

The next major debate scheduled to rock Washington is the issue of the nation’s debt ceiling, or in other words the level of aggregate debt the government can legally accumulate as stipulated by Congress.  The current debt limit of $14.249 trillion is fast approaching; the federal government will run out of budgetary measures to avoid default this August.  The fast approaching deadline has many worried about whether or not the ceiling will be raised in order to sustain continued federal spending.  Is this concern correctly placed?  Should we be worried more about reachin

Tangled in the “Grapevine”: Obama caught campaigning on misinformation?

President Obama stopped in Annandale, Virginia this week to hold a town hall meeting with students and staff at Northern Virginia Community College.  He made some particularly interesting remarks in an attempt to connect the coal industry to the disease asthma.  In an attempt to defend greater regulation of coal based electric power production, the president claimed that coal emissions can cause the disease asthma.  This is simply not true as the actual cause of the disease is unknown.
