Obama To Propose Two Free Years Of Community College For Students 

 

 

 

 

 

” President Barack Obama will need the approval of Congress to realize his proposal for making two years of community college free for students.

   So far, that plan doesn’t have an official price tag — other than “significant,” according to White House officials. If all 50 states participate, the proposal could benefit 9 million students each year and save students an average of $3,800 in tuition, the White House said.

  But administration officials insisted on a call with reporters Thursday evening that “this is a proposal with bipartisan appeal.”

  Case in point: Republican Gov. Bill Haslam, whose brainchild Tennessee Promise program strongly influenced Obama’s proposal. Beginning this year, any high school graduate in that state is eligible for two years of free community college tuition under the Tennessee Promise.”

 

 

    Regardless of the “bipartisan appeal” how the f**k is a government that is 18 trillion dollars in the hole supposed to pay for yet another feel-good , vote buying entitlement ? Simple mathematics puts a real figure ($34.2 Billion annually) to the White House’s estimate of a “significant” cost and as always with State spending we can be sure the estimate is a very lowball one . WTF ?

    And putting aside the cost , where in the Constitution is the “right” to a free education ?

   With that in mind , let us not forget what the Obama administration has already “accomplished” in the field of education:

 

 

Student Loan Debt

 

What could possibly go wrong ?

Don Young, And The Democrats’ Homer Simpson Problem

 

” The smart set at the Washington Post figures the Republican Party has an “Archie Bunker problem.”  The reason?  A single comment about “wetbacks” by Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), and the Washington Post springs into action.

There is only one Don Young in the Republican Party.  But the Democrats have a “Homer Simpson problem” that dwarfs any stupid comment by a single congressman.

” The Democrats have become the party of Homer Simpson — a party reliant on millions of low-information voters seeking something for nothing.  Like the Democrat dependency class, Homer Simpson (D-Springfield) relied on Mojo the Helper Monkey to feed him and even wipe the sauce from his face.  The pair eventually gorged themselves into a stupor.

The Democratic Party has become the party that promises millions of helper monkeys.  But those of us who work and pay taxes are the helper monkeys for Homer Simpsons across America.

Don’t think you should pay for your own college education?  Mojo will make sure people who long ago paid for theirs will pay for yours. Think your neighbor should pay for your health care? Mojo will take care of it.  Need a free cell phone?  Mojo paid for his, but now he’ll pay for yours.

Homer has no shame letting Mojo do all the work.  Homer’s on the take.”
