Nobody, I guess, but what makes you think funding would become a "non-issue"? Every real academic is in that field because they have published research and wish to continue to do so, lest the sciences be dominated by their left-wing ilk. Can we really just teach our cares away, or does publishing and research still remain important? After all, losing the ability to make waves in the sciences by continuing research is no small deal, and any institution that did not put out research would become less relevant because of the fact that there is nothing tangible to show for the students' education. Part of an education, after all, is doing research that's relevant in the student's field, you know, in real life. If you take that away and just make it like a high school where students go to absorb knowledge and trust-us-we-graded-them-they-know-their-stuff, then you're taking away part of the core of what it means to be in university.
