Buried deep in President Obama's 2016 budget (page 41) is a proposal to cut up to 30 questions from the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The Obama administration has already done a lot to make the FAFSA easier — if not shorter. Online technology now allows students to skip questions that don't apply to them.
