    Liberals don't want citizens who can earn a living, and take care of themselves.


    Liberals have a very different view,…put your faith in government.

    “ We try and discourage people from self help." – Former MASS A.G. Coakley



    Here is Pelosi essentially saying the same thing:


    "Pelosi: Obamacare Allows You to Quit Your Job and Become 'Whatever'

    (CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that Obamacare facilitates the type of “liberation” that the “Founders had in mind” because it allows you to quit your job and become a “photographer,” a “writer,” a “musician”--or “whatever.”

    “As you hear from these stories, this is a liberation,” Pelosi said ..."

    Some students don’t have wealthy daddy’s to pay for expensive schools

    That is the conservative model

    True. But at least many of the degrees they’re in hock for are utterly worthless in the real working world, but I guess it can’t take all that many decades to pay off $20k from Uber driving earnings.

    It's a tough world out there considering all the terrible emoyers new workers need to avoid. I would surmise that well over 50 percent of employers are on the way below average side. Doesn't give much hope to this new high productive new working generation.

    This is a great idea! I think more schools should employ this but I have to wonder how feasible it is on a large scale. I’m trying to figure out the math here. If the kids here are only working 15 hours a week, and they are working maybe 42 weeks a tear (minus ~8 for the summer and ~2 for winter/spring break) and they make 15,900 at the end, that’s equivalent to making $25 an hour. No where else can someone without a college degree get that kind of payment. How could we take this program and expand it? Theres no way every college could afford to have their kids work it off.

    Trade schools need to be reinstated as a valid and valuable option. I am young and when I was in high school it was never even spoken about. It felt like that was what you did if you weren’t “good enough” to go to college.

    The first thing that would happen would be unions would raise holy hell.
