Higher Education for Taxpayers. WebMemo. Number 1547
Foster, J. D.
In this brief essay, the author reacts to a recent bill from the House Education and Workforce Committee by praising its identification of wasteful spending on higher education programs while expressing unhappiness with its creation of new entitlements and subsidies. In the author's opinion, the savings produced by the spending cut should instead be returned to taxpayers through education-oriented tax relief or used to support the core federal higher education mission of helping students pay for college.
