Beware of any political party who seeks to limit access to higher education

Beware of any political party who seeks to limit access to higher education...

Here's the headline and story, and actions that I am referring to:

"The GOP bill to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, introduced by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) on Friday, would eliminate the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, which erases student debt for those who work for qualifying employers after making payments for 10 years."  (see link at end of article)

When I was living in Phoenix, I remember having a conversation with a young man, a young Christian man who was studying to be a church youth director. His opinion was one that shocked me to the core and provided further proof that our "religious" have been indoctrinated into a system that has little, if anything, to do with the teachings of their Jesus.

This young man said that it wasn't fair for people to get student loans and student grants, because it made his degree less relevant. Yes. He said that, and apparently, it's a popular opinion if the actions of Rep. Foxx are any indication.

In other words, the wealthy think that higher education should be reserved for them because they are the elite, and they want to keep it that way. It's part of what makes them "special."

Regardless of how they justify it, any limitations to higher education are the beginning of a landslide on a slippery slope.

As the apparent dumbing down of Americans continues...

The GOP wants to make it even harder to receive a university degree by crippling current pathways for repayment of college loans....

Only the wealthy should have access to universities... that is the apparent end result of new legislation limiting current help for student debt repayment.

Now if you're wondering if Rep. Virginia Foxx of N.C. considers herself a "Christian," she does. Certainly not by my standards or the standards of Jesus Christ, but definitely by today's standards as exemplified by popular evangelical leaders such as Franklin Graham.

Here's the link as proof of her (Rep. Virginia Foss) religious claims. If you read the book, remember her true colors are shining loud and clear by her actions, which certainly do not embrace the teachings, the life, or the heart of her Christ. patheos.com/gods-people-in-the-house

Say, or write, what you will. 

Actions speak louder than words.


I've never seen such a "lost" group of people as we are witnessing today in the GOP. If they weren't claiming that their religion was at the top of their priority list, then their actions wouldn't be as disturbing. They would still be disgusting, but not as disturbing

GOP bill would eliminate student loan forgiveness for public service

BY JACQUELINE THOMSEN - 

 Here's what it says on the 74 year old Rep. Foxx's government website:

The nonpartisan magazine National Journal has consistently ranked Foxx as one of the most conservative members of the North Carolina Congressional Delegation. She also has a lifetime 96 percent approval rating from the American Conservative Union.

Sad, isn't it? But conservatives think this is a good thing.

It's time for progressives to speak out, and we do that by showing up to vote on election day.

SMH at the elitist, conservative, idiocy spreading like the plague in our country.

May the force be with us.

who seeks to limit access to higher education 
by reserving said access for the elitists wealthiest.
