Let the online universities compete, and get the government out of the student loan business, and universities will either go bankrupt in a hurry (as it seems they inevitably will do longer term anyway per the Harvard professor of economics) or come up with better pricing.
That will never fly because it makes sense.
From the article:
"The president's plan will also take down barriers that stand in the way of competition and innovation, particularly in the use of new technology, and shine a light on the most cutting-edge college practices for providing high value at low costs," the White House said in a statement."
All he has to do is get government out of the way because that is what free markets do, but of course he is smarter.
