Q18A: GOVERNMENT LOANS AND GRANTS

I'd like to ask about some SPECIFIC federal government programs. For each, please tell me whether you feel spending for that program should be increased, decreased or left about the same. How about loans and grants to college students? Should spending for that program be increased, decreased or left about the same? [IF INCREASE/DECREASE, PROBE:] Is that increased/decreased a great deal or increased/decreased somewhat?
