American Presidential Candidates

If we want to afford the increased operating costs because of an ever-growing pile of federal regulations, increased taxes (especially income taxes year after year), and keep giving our teachers raises instead of watching them leave the state like everyone else, then yes.

I'll give you a recent example of something the government is doing to screw us. For decades we've been receiving a $250,000 grant that went out to applicable students through our financial aid office, paying for the majority of their tuition costs. At the end of the year every penny is paid back. We have never failed in the 50+ years of its existence. The state of Connecticut decided in the last year that since private schools are considered a business they are no longer qualified to receive this money. That eliminated 40 students overnight, which did a number of things. Several classes were merged, a couple teachers were laid off, and tuition costs for everybody else went up 30%. I'm doing the job of 2 people now. We are one of the last private schools to continue operating here since the Democrats did this because nobody knows how to deal with it. Statewide, more students are leaving and not coming back. Teachers are leaving. Schools are closing and the surrounding businesses that rely on them are closing.
It gets even better and bleeding heart libs like you are responsible love this. The taxes that pays for those grants is still in existence (and increasing). But the money is no longer going to financial aid to help dozens of kids. The $250,000 that previously helped put 40 students through college is now giving a free ride to a single non-citizen at a bloated state college. Money that will never be seen again paid for by the people getting screwed by it. All in the name of your false "equality" bullshit.

Ok, so you work for a place that got a publicly funded tax-free loan repeatedly, and the administration never thought it would be a good idea to save up enough so that they didn't have to keep sponging off taxpayers?

He said that the money was paid back in full. So it was a subsidy.

Private schools are oddball entities. For example, in England they are considered charities and pay zero tax.

A lot of public funding goes into private school enterprise departments too. Small businesses incubators are run on them. A surprising amount of private enterprise survives on the back of tax payers.

It's got nothing to do with liberal or conservative politics though, not on a global scale. The real problems lie with institutional corruption and post-recession policy changes.

Oh I know, I was just using the kind of rhetoric that the American right uses to see what reaction I'd get - they usually can't take what they dish out, see exhibit a:
