"In the way they’re kind of writing it right now out of the Senate Finance Committee, some people could spend their entire five years on welfare – there’s a five-year work requirement – going to college. Now, that’s not my view of helping people become independent, and it’s certainly not my view of understanding the importance of work and helping people achieve the dignity necessary so they can live a free life, free from government control."
That quote, ladies and gentlereaders, was brought to you by your duly miselected “Education President”.
Just cause the Shrub spent his four years at Yale binge-drinking, tokeing, sleeping late, and gropeing the ugly sorority sister, doesn’t mean other people don’t get some self-respect and ambition out of college.
So unless we’re seeking to breed a class of illiterate peons to clean our toilets, maybe the president shouldn’t be trashing schooling while speaking from the lecturn in a public school.
Heaven forbid this country had intelligent people creating new products and ideas to propel the economy and the planet into the future.
