The Democrat Party has basically one electoral platform; “We will take money away from other people and buy you stuff with it.”* Democrat Frontrunners Hillary Rodham Clinton and Bernie Sanders are promising to raise taxes on other people (to 90% of income in Sanders case) so they can offer free college tuition to feed their voters’ ravenous appetite for Government programs.
The plan—dubbed the “New College Compact” and estimated to cost $350 billion over 10 years—would fundamentally reshape the federal government’s role in higher education by offering new federal money, but with strings attached.
States would have to increase their own spending on higher education, and universities would be required to control spending…
The increased availability of subsidized loans and federal aid is itself the primary cause of rising tuition. After all, the price of higher education can only keep rising if people somehow keep finding money to pay for it. And it is the loans and grants that provide most of that money.
It is precisely because of the Federal Government’s bottomless subsidies that colleges have become bloated with unnecessary administrative staff and useless degree programs like Womyns Studies and Queer Migration Studies. The economy doesn’t need more degreed social justice warriors, it needs more skilled tradesmen and engineers. But then, the Democrats are equally determined to flood the country with cheaper foreign labor to keep Americans out of those jobs anyway.
Sanders, by the way, is now beating Hillary in the polls. Can we admit the Democrat Party is full-on Socialist now? Not even the Swedes have the magnitude of tax-and-spend policies Clinton and Sanders are proposing.
Here’s a chuckle from Hillary: “As President, I Would Model The Kind Of Behavior I Would Hope All Americans Would Have.” So, I guess that means we’re all supposed to commit felonies, lie about them, and destroy the evidence.
*”And in return, you will turn a blind eye to our massive corruption and cronyism.”
