“If these cuts go through, the people that are going to feel the cuts are the low level employees at the University of Missouri and the students. At a time when student debt is at $1.3 trillion in the United States, we can’t continue to tax the middle class by cutting education funding and increasing tuition. That’s what would happen.”
