    She wants to go to Churchill College. She's 62 and retired. Many seniors want to go back to school and learn something new so they can get a job the are physically able to handle.

    The college dropped it's senior discount this year. That means the cost just increased by a factor of "5". I'm going to pay for her college.

    You see, government funding for the college was slashed. Republicans don't understand the benefits of education. Without an educated population, without research, innovation or technology, what would we be? What is the plan for the country without those things?

    Give rich people tax cuts only goes so far. Then what?

    Was this a federal or a state subsidy?

    Oh, they believe in the benefits of education, all right – but they believe only a select few should benefit. If one can’t afford to go on his own, one has no business going at all.

    According to the news, senior looking for jobs are doing pretty well. Most seniors don't need retirement plans and if they're on Medicare, they don't need healthcare plans, nor pregnancy leaves. This means really big savings for businesses. In addition. seniors have better attendance records than younger workers and they have loads of experience.
