Tax Notes's position is that you either pay the $2,000, or you are out of luck. If Harvard or a non-profit hospital tried that, the Senate Finance Committee or the IRS would be on their case faster than you can say audit.
Actually no, there's no law that states Harvard can not say "tuition or take a hike" and there are countless examples of people who have beend saddled with huge bills by non profit hospitals.
If you want to make those statements, you need to provide some links to back them up. Otherwise it's just convienent hyperbole.
