Here is a question for Elizabeth: how concerned are you about animal welfare? Is it on your radar at all? For example, did you support banning greyhound racing in the state or banning devocalization of dogs? Do you support regulating puppy mills, protecting wildlife versus grazing cattle slated for food or banning cruel roundups of wild horses? Scott Brown is very animal-friendly and i would like to know where you stand. Thanks!

I know you're a supporter of holding the line on college interest rates. While this is an admirable band aid to nominally mitigate student debt burdens it doesn't address the underlying need for reducing the out of control growth in college and university tuition costs vs. household income growth. What would you do to encourage and/or force structural changes in the college/university cost structure to truly make higher education affordable to middle and upper middle class families? Getting the borrowing rate down on a $200K four year experience is not a sustainable solution. Figuring out how to reduce that $200K expense by 50% and then allowing it to grow in line with inflation/income growth over time is a more sustainable objective in my opinion. The obvious challenge is how do you instigate this change. If I may lead the witness, I'd like to focus your response on ideas to reduce the tuition costs without government subsidies. I'd like to understand your ideas on restructuring the underlying cost of delivering higher education services. Thanks for your consideration.
