See, he chides Romney for supporting a plan to take action to save these programs, which will go under if we do nothing, like he wants. But when you say you are against cuts, you are misleading people into thinking that you are trying to save the programs, while the opposite is true. That's the democrat way. So, maybe he's just evil.

Could Wikipedia be wrong?

"Education in the People's Republic of China is a state-run system of public education run by the Ministry of Education. All citizens must attend school for at least nine years. The government provides primary education for six years, starting at age six or seven, followed by six years of secondary education for ages 12 to 18.[clarification needed] Some provinces may have five years of primary school but four years for middle school. There are three years of middle school and three years of high school. The Ministry of Education reported a 99 percent attendance rate for primary school and an 80 percent rate for both primary and middle schools.[citation needed] In 1985, the government abolished tax-funded higher education, requiring university applicants to compete for scholarships based on academic ability. In the early 1980s the government allowed the establishment of the first private schools."

It is true that the cost of education is not fully borne by the state and must be subsidized with tuition payments.

That would have been the way to do if the govt had started that rather than borrowing decades ago.

Raising taxes is not the answer, it would add to the problem. It would hurt the economy and wouldn't come close to slowing the debt growth.

Obama has added a trillion dollars a year to the deficit. It is quite obviously a spending problem. We were able to get along spending a trillion less a year before Obama got into office.

"The cost of the wars did not help either."

You have a gift for understatement. ;-)
