UW System's Tuition to Exceed Inflation. Again.

No matter how DarthDoyle & Co. paint this pig, it still comes out....smelling.

Defending the indefensible Doyle "Tax-O-Rama" budget proposal, his mouthpiece:

State Budget Director Dave Schmiedicke said Doyle's budget would give the University of Wisconsin System $183 million more in state tax funds, which means that tuition should rise only about 4% a year for the next two years.

Inflation is generally predicted to be in the 3% area. So the System's increases will exceed inflation prima facie...BESIDES that, State taxpayers will kick in an additional $183 million.
