Confiscate the endowments of all the universities and use them to lower tuition.

A private university is an abomination; a private university with THAT MUCH MONEY is even moreso. Harvard can meet its moral responsibilities not by sharing some of its endowment with one person, but by dissolving the endowment to pay for free tuition.

Endowments are places for people who think they’re smarter than the government to hide their money from taxes. Fuck that loophole-for-rich-people bullshit.

Charge state-mandated tuition set at the same level as a State School. I don’t appreciate your assumption that giving a fuck about what happens to a bastion of privilege is somehow my job.
