"The behavior of predatory for-profit colleges is egregious. They are private companies that can subsist entirely on federal dollars. I would think that my colleagues who decry crony capitalism would particularly object to this, especially since it comes at the expense of veterans, students, families and taxpayers.

"Last month, in what can only be described as a Freudian slip, the President praised the 'abolition of civil rights.' Unfortunately, that statement hits far too close to the truth."
