Aren't universities in competition with one another? Isn't this an example of your precious free market system? Does it really matter who loaned the money when students decide to shop for a school? Aren't you just a government basher? How do you justify your post-meltdown love affair with a free market that almost brought this country to it's knees, were it not for the evil government rescue?
