Clearly enjoying the raucous, rock-star welcome given to him by students at the University of Buffalo on Thursday — and even cracking a Millard Fillmore joke — President Obama outlined his plan to steer federal student aid to colleges and universities that meet government-approved criteria on tuition, graduation rates, minority enrollment, and graduates’ earnings and student debt.
“We’ve got a crisis in terms of college affordability and student debt,” the president said.

“And what that means is, state legislatures are going to have to step up.”
