Best thing obama did for education is the ibr. Now I dont get punished just because I went to an ivy league. Romney flat out stated that we shouldn't go to good schools because theyre expensive which is bullshit. One of the key means of upper mobility is getting the best education possible. Good education shouldn't be a reward given to only those that can afford it. It should be given equally.<quoted text>
The problem is that simple-minded people cannot grasp that no president could possibly turn around such a devastated economy in four years. The fact is that repulicans love teabaggers because they fall for specious arguments; they don't look beneath what they consider "common sense", and this country is far too complex to run on "good old fashioned horse sense".
Case in point: Romney and Ryan don't want to help fund tution assistance. On the surface, this seems to be a good idea, because it puts more money on the bottom line, right? Wrong. tuition assistance means more Americans are better prepared to compete in the global workforce, and that means that - over their lifetimes - they will contribute far more in taxes than they ever took in student aid.
Obama fought to make it so students can handle the student loans with the ibr. Romney says we should just not go to college or be like him and have daddy pay for it. One of those approaches creates upward mobility and a stronger economic work force, the other is mitt romney's plan.
