COMMITTEE ON RULES -
I figure this would be useful and interesting to read.
"Section 2104. Investment in Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Serving Institutions. This section amends section 371(b) of the Higher Education Act by extending funding for programs under this section created under the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 for programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and minority-serving institutions through 2019, including programs that help low-income students attain degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics by the following annual amounts: $100 million to Hispanic Serving Institutions, $85 million to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, $15 million to Predominantly Black Institutions, $30 million to Tribal Colleges and Universities, $15 million to Alaska, Hawaiian Native Institutions, $5 million to Asian American and Pacific Islander Institutions, and $5 million to Native American non-tribal serving institutions."
COMMITTEE ON RULES -
Sec. 1001. Affordability. Improves the financing for premiums and cost sharing for individuals with incomes up to 400% of the federal poverty level. Subsection (a) improves tax credits to make premiums more affordable as a percent of income; and subsection (b) improves support for cost sharing, focusing on those with incomes below 250% of the federal poverty level. Starting in 2019, constrains the growth in tax credits if premiums are growing faster than the consumer price index, unless spending is more than 10% below current CBO projections.
Abort this Bill!!!
It needs a late term fifth trimester abortion!
The 'Cadillac Plan' 2018? LOL! They will never shive the unions like that. Only one of the points that make it impossible for the CBO to actually count costs.
were is the grants to the mostly white colleges?.....
Among other things Obama is proving he is a racist.
But it's really not "Obama's bill", it's the democraps bill. And nothing works better than pandering to minorities when you're a filthy democrat.
yes, I'd say that was interesting. I can't wait till we get someone white in control..I'm gonna write my congressman and ask that he formally ask for a congressional white caucus,, we need one.
The bill also puts a 3.9% medicare tax on all investment income - squashing job creation even further.
