"Imagine what our public universities could look like with solid funding increases"

The reason we're having this conversation in the first place is precisely the "funding increases" they've been experiencing. If this isn't enough "funding increase" for them: https://rpreschern.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/college-tuiti... then I'd have to suggest "funding" is not their problem. What they'd look like with "solid funding increases" is pretty much what you're seeing right now.

Thank you for posting this. As in healthcare, the problem isn’t so much the inability to pay as it is that costs spiraling out of control for no added value.

Prices tend to do this is a supply constricted market when demand is artificially boosted by government subsidies.
