The House GOP budget targets grants for the neediest students - Washington Post Editorial Board

THE BUDGET outline released by House Republicans would freeze levels of financial aid for poor college students, on the pretext that the Obama administration’s expansion of student assistance is expensive and ill-targeted. It’s a bad idea built on a faulty premise. Even if that weren’t the case, the proposal is a poor way to achieve cost savings or increase the efficiency of federal student aid. The underlying absurdity is the notion that the federal budget can be balanced without both long-term entitlement cuts and an increase in revenue.
