Unhappy with cost of college tuition

After 30 years of Democratic control of our state government, let’s clean the barnacles off the body politic. College tuition in Washington state has been rising unmercifully since 1986. However, the Democrats will just continue to scream for more money, which seldom if ever results in a lowering of actual tuition for the students and their families.

College has gone from $500 a quarter for tuition to, on average, $2,700. It is time to clean the bottom of our ship of state, so it and our students can cleave through the waters ahead for a better tomorrow.
