Student takes on John Kline

I'll have more video coverage from Congressman John Kline's Town Hall meeting later, but I did want to pass along this short video. In response to a question from a college student about tuition costs, Congressman Kline said he was looking for ways to bring college costs down, but he didn't have any solutions and would welcome some. Be careful what you ask for, the student offered a solution.

I heard "you could roll back...." but couldn't quite catch the rest of it. Could you post a transcript?

That's because Kline's staff worked very hard to prevent the media from getting good audio of this event. More on that soon. Transcript will be coming.

I was at the meeting. The student said something like (and I am paraphrasing) "you could roll back the tax cuts you have given to the very wealthy and invest that money in making college more affordable.” The audience went nuts - it was perfect!

Dang, that was AWESOME! Good thing us WSU student's weren't there, we would've put Kline in his place as well :)
