The latest ploy to pass this unpopular bill is to dump student aid into the health care bill. I’m still scratching my head and trying to establish what one subject has to do with the other? Wow!!! is all I can say at this point. Look at it this way. The Demwit health care bill is an attempt to take over 1/6th of our economy. So now they want to try to muscle through another top administration priority using reconciliation, which is absurd, to capture another segment of the economy.
Here’s what one lawmaker said. "Well of course it's a very bad idea," said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. "We now have the government running banks, insurance companies, car companies, and they do want to take over the student loan business." Enough of this bull sh*t is quite enough. They do seem intent in making sure they lose any hint of a majority position in the November elections. This is nothing more than another ploy for the federal bureaucracy to extend its tentacles further and further into society.
The student aid bill has been stalled and lacks the 60 votes needed to clear the Senate. This latest ploy is a way to circumvent the proper procedures to pass legislation and it is also a further insult to the American public to try to add it to a bill that has nothing to do with health care. The student aid measure makes it a requirement that the government originate student loans The role for banks and other private lenders who charge a fee would disappear. Supposedly these savings would be flipped into higher Pell Grants. Since when has the federal government ever worry about saving money? What a farce that is.
Porkulosi, our defacto POTUS, wants it spread beyond Pell Grants. Again the question becomes, “”Who’s in charge of this mobocracy?” Supposedly this new scheme would save $66 billion over a decade according to The Pork Queen. However, lets take a look at what the Congressional Budget Office says about the issue since some 2,300 colleges and universities have already gone over to direct lending. This has upped any cost of the legislation to $68 billion over a decade, eating up the cost-savings projected. More smoke and mirrors from The Queen of the Marsh Mice.
As our economy has continued to tank, what do you think has happened to Pell Grant requests? Have they slumped or risen? Risen is the correct response so Not only have they soared in the bad economy so it is conceivable the fiscal picture could worsen. So lets back track a little bit and ask again what all the lip service was about JOBS, JOBS, JOBS. As the economy worsens what happens to the entitlement programs? This is not nuclear science here folks. If I were a college student, I’d be very concerned about the federal government taking over the ability for me to finance my education. They have managed to do anything right lately except expand the federal deficit tremendously. The Demwits don't seem capable of picking their nose properly at this juncture.
Another bad idea from the Demwits with the LWNJ cheer leaders cheering them on I’m sure. But rest assured of one thing. The far left wing of the Democratic Party will be toast come November 2nd and they know it. They want to force feed the public exactly what they know we oppose. It may be the only chance they get to spend our tax dollars and try to expand their control over our nation’s economy. They have no business being involved in our free market economy. We see the results of their recent past efforts and it ain’t pretty.
