Give Gov. Perry credit for high tuition costs

Texas children and their parents can thank special interest driven Gov. Rick Perry for unaffordable tuition costs.

In his reelection bid [2010], Perry is proclaiming himself to be the hero who will reduce tuition costs. Unfortunately, the reality is that Gov. Perry is a major cause of increased tuition.

Is college for wealthy elitists only? The answer is, "Yes."

Three years ago Gov. Rick Perry and various legislators lobbied for their higher education special interests and approved the bill to deregulate tuition costs under the guise of creating free competition, which would result in lower costs.

Since that time the University of Texas raised its tuition costs at least 4 times and other universities and colleges followed suit. Today, fewer Texas families can afford to send their children to college for a higher education degree, which once again ensure that degrees will be held by the children of wealthy families.

All children have the right to complete a higher-level education and become productive citizens despite the opposing efforts of Gov. Rick Perry, special interests and wealthy lobbyists.

Thank Gov. Perry by NOT reelecting him in the November 2010 election!
