Obama Launches Assault on Private-Sector Colleges

We don't need no ejumakashun.

If you want to go after institutions of higher learning that saddle students with massive debt and don't send them off with the earning power they need to make the expense worth it, you could start with - oh, I don't know - every university in America.

But the Obama White House is not going to do that because public-sector universities are employment factories for union-affiliated professors and others who are part of the Democrat orbit. Now private-sector institutions are another matter entirely. Organizations like the University of Phoenix, DeVry University and ITT - Democrats hate them because they provide competition for government-controlled schools and they don't use union faculty. So the Department of Education is launching an all-out assault on these schools,http://www.politico.com/story/2014/03/barack-obama-education-for-profit-colleges-104661.html  imposing new standards on them that threaten the ability of students to receive federal loans to enroll and take their courses.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

This appears to be related thread. He's against private schools at every level, looks like, whether K-12 or university.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
