Duty to Share

Speaking from Texas, Bush reminds the nation that it is a good thing for those Americans who have to give to those who have not.

"We're grateful for our beautiful country, and for the prosperity we enjoy. We're grateful for the chance to live, work and worship in freedom," Bush said.

"We also recognize our duty to share our blessings with the least among us," the president said.
But that's just vacation Texas talk I guess. I wish he could remember it all when he gets back to the Whitehouse.

I think a lot of college students across America are feeling the money changes. I'm in college myself. I'm not poor by any means, but nobody needs to work more hours a week than they can study. Pell Grants help out a lot. I cover the rest of my costs with loans. So it makes sense that the more grant money I get, the less I go in debt.

Does anybody remember back in February 2001 when Bush proposed to increase Pell Grants by $1 billion? I bet not. He never kept that promise though. I wish he would have. Now after the election he is asking to reduce them by $300 million. Thanks, George. It's sad that Bush has kept more promises to reduce spending than he has his promises to increase spending.

Mark this as another grand vision of the Bush Administration. Encourage movement to high-tech jobs and higher paying work. Encourage higher education. Under fund lower-education. De-fund higher-education assistance. This math just doesn't add up. Posted by Adam Ducker at November 27, 2004 12:47 PM
