USA Today: Hillary Clinton, campaigning here Wednesday with Sen. Bernie Sanders, worked to sway millennial voters by promoting a plan to make public college tuition-free for working families. In a University of New Hampshire gym packed with students, Clinton sought to connect with those facing sometimes insurmountable college debt. Clinton said that when she graduated from college herself, she repaid her loans as a percentage of her income, which allowed her to take a low-paying public service job with the Children’s Defense Fund. Clinton noted that New Hampshire has the highest proportion of students with debt and the second-highest average debt per student. She said she aims to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for families earning less than $125,000 per year, to make community college free, and to help students refinance their college debt.
I love free shit. Who is gonna pay for the cost of running a major public university? Doesn’t matter. Stop asking stupid questions. We have politicians promising idiotic 19 year olds free shit here. We don’t have time for reason, logic, or rational questions.
But seriously, how hard is Hillary Clinton trying to suck of Bernie’s government giveaway tits? Young people hate Hillary Cllinton. She’s only in the position she’s in now because they don’t vote. Hillary Clinton is elected by old white women who wanna see one of their own in the Oval Office before they croak. And Hill-Dawg knows that the only way she can please these dolts is by promising them free shit.
And where did they come up with that $125,000 figure? Newsflash – if your family’s combined income is $120,000 a year, they can afford to pay for your state school. If they can’t then you take out loans, apply for work study, or use your parent’s savings to pay for tuition. If your parents don’t have any savings because they’ve been living outside of their means your entire life, then the problem isn’t the high cost of college, it’s your irresponsible parents.
So what happens if your combined income is $126,000? Did we think that one through? So if I make $1,000 more per year than my neighbor, then I have to pay full tuition while he gets to send his kids to school for free? Yea, that makes sense. So what you’re gonna have is a bunch of people finding ways to waste money by the end of the year so they can qualify for the free tuition give away come tax season. Brilliant.
I love stuff like this too:
No one should ever have to borrow money to pay for goods and services. Why? Because…..we said so. And it makes us feel good to say that.
Anyone who thinks you shouldn’t have to borrow money to go to college is a moron. College is an investment in your future. It costs money. If you don’t think you’re going to leave college with a degree that can help you make more money than someone without a degree, then don’t waste your time and money on going to college. It’s perfectly fine if you don’t go to college. Plenty of people start their own business or learn trades and do better than people who graduate with degrees in Women’s Studies from Hampshire College.
This Turtleboy is in his 30’s, and he’s still paying back loans every month. In hindsight we should’ve just started this blog back in ought four instead of wasting time getting a college degree. But then again I got a four year party vacation out of it and I learned how to write. When I write that check to ACS student loans every month I think about all the Keystone Lights, lifelong friendships, and beautiful girls I met in college, and I don’t feel so bad because I’m paying for something that I actually enjoyed and got something out of.
Anyway, it’s pretty hilarious that these idiot college kids are still following Bernie around after he completely sold them out. Everything Bernie did was for nothing. Everything. Ultimately he knew he was going to lose the entire time, and he got all these morons to give him money so he could build his personal brand.Two years ago he was an irrelevant nobody Senator from a state no one cares about. Now he’s the Bern.
The only Bernie people keeping it real are these amazing angry chicks we met in Philadelphia when we hung out with protesters all day outside the DNC:
Bernie talked a big game about a crooked system and Washington insiders, but when push came to shove he ended up throwing his full support behind this two party system and the Washington insiders. And it worked perfectly because all these idiots are still following him, and they’re all gonna vote for Hillary just like they said they’d never do. More than likely Bernie took a nice little under the table pay off to bring his band of lemmings to Hillary. He got paid twice and you all fell for it. Nice going morons.
