I think the method of providing the means to pursue higher education has faults, but not the purpose or responsibility of the government.
The main weakness of the extreme right wing is their view of government as evil, when in fact the government is us and neither is perfect.
Government is not evil in and of itself. When it oversteps it self to the point that citizens are not being served, but instead being kept it becomes evil. If you choose to bury yourself in debt, it is not the government's job to bail you out. The feds already back student loans. What more do you want? You want them to guarantee student loans so you can get them in the first place then you want them to pay them off for you too?
