The Obama administration's default position always happens to amass more power for big government. An example is the White House's proposed set of new regulations for higher education.
The Education Department is expected to issue a final rule this month against for-profit colleges such as Phoenix University and Strayer University. The move would reject loans for programs whose previous students have shown, via a rather arbitrary formula, a propensity to accrue debts higher than they can repay. The theory is that these pre-professional programs demonstrate their ineffectiveness by their students' subsequent failures.
