And what happens to family's making 130k a year? Their kids get the shaft?
They'll probably set up a graduated system around whatever dollar value, decreasing aid as income rises from that point.
If you're making 6 figures though, it's pretty much expected that you fund your childs education because no need based grants (which are most of them)
will apply to your kid until they're 25.

True but would you rather make coffee for a large Starbucks for 8.75$ or make axle seals for Dana @ 15.50$? Both would be unpleasant, but $ is what
makes the world go around.
I don't believe in are sacrificing your future for the sake of your present
I also don't believe in going to work and doing a job you dislike just because you need to pay rent.
Some people want to work in a factory, and that's great for them. We should have that type of labor available and it should be viable. I want to do
something different in life, if you gave me the choice between those two jobs I would pick Starbucks because it has less responsibility, and neither
is what I want to do. I'm much more comfortable sitting in an office and white boarding logic problems all day long or building 3d models.
I don't agree with forcing people into a field they dislike. If you like the field you'll be more productive to it or at least you'll be more
enthusiastic about the work if your only interest is a paycheck. Doing a job you hate every day for 10, 20, or 40 years only because that's what's
necessary for survival sounds like hell to me. I'm lucky enough to have avoided that fate so far (seriously, I can't stress enough how unbelievably
fortunate I've been in life... I'm pretty much the luckiest person alive), but many others aren't. A college education that doesn't bury them in debt
could change their direction in life.
