Spending limits = big tuition hikes

Not that this is any surprise, but at least the regents are speaking out early against TABOR 2.

It is clear to them (as it is to most people) that tuition will continue to go up if the state continues to cut support to our universities.

The republican sponsor says that UWs aren't too expensive, and that all that debt that students have is because of bad financial management.

I'm wondering how THAT statement will play with the average citizen in this state. They instinctively rally around "reining in taxes," but I cannot imagine many taxpayers agreeing with THAT statement. It may just be the dumb move that begins to undermine the whole anti-intellectual sentiment in state government. Clearly, the person quoted is "out of touch" with the average taxpayer in Wisconsin.
