Typical Republican approach to EVERYTHING. If the top 5% don't need it -- CUT IT or even better, ELIMINATE IT.

I can hear them now: those whiners should get a job, get a haircut, be self-sufficient and not a drag on the economy, fend for themselves, work 3 part-time jobs AND take classes, et cetera et cetera ad nauseum.

As to the business owners who cannot fill some skilled positions -- heck, they're not multinationals, so why should we pay to educate THEIR workers?

And some wonder why America is falling further and further behind other industrialized nations!

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( http://goo.gl/44kQUQ ) too my friends and family.

Hard working American Citizens are tired of paying for other peoples kids college with their taxes when they already pay for their living expenses through welfare with their taxes. No one gave our kids taxpayer money for college and no breaks either. You paid for it yourself. Get a job and pay for your own college. Or take out a student loan and Pay it back which is the right way to do it. Too many freebies on the taxpayers back. Our Government seems to think everyone who works is rich. Wrong, they budget their money and only buy what they can afford. There is a huge difference between Want & Need.
