Here is the truth tuition free college: It makes total economic sense. First, graduates, like many veterans with the GI Bill, come out of college debt free. What does this mean to the real economy? Well it frees up capital, that would have been spent paying back loans, that is spent in the real economy. The one you and I live in. People spending money, not tax cuts to the rich, actually create jobs. Secondly, you have highly educated work force that will create new businesses and technologies; which creates jobs; which turns to more spending and tax revenue which pays for college tuition.
Then, the question of how do we pay for it? Well those people are going to go out and get jobs, make money and spend money. This money will be taxed. Thus paying for itself. This is why the GI Bill doesn’t cost the tax payer money. And that is why it makes economic sense.
Now who would be against this? Very simple: Wall St. You see banks give out student loans and tact on high interest rates that the students have to pay back. This is money that is not being spent in the real economy. This is houses that are not being bought. This is jobs that are not created.
Free tuition is one of the best things we can do for this country. It just makes economic sense and it pays for itself.
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is really bad at communicating ideas. This being one of them. Tuition free college pays for itself because the people that go to college get jobs and pay taxes thus paying back their tuition.
Also, it isn’t about redistribution. It is about fair distribution. The reason you are not making a good money is because money funnels to the top. This is what trickle down economics look like. You work hard for little so that the top become wealthier. This is why the Republicans have not had any new ideas on economics since Reagan.
Also, about taxes and why I am for the wealthy paying their fair share; which they do not now: Those of benefit the most from society should pay the most. It is that simple. They benefit from the military, infrastructure, our courts, labor, security and I could go on.
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders Is has been terrible at communicating that. He just runs around saying he is going to tax the rich. Which taxing them just because they have money without cause would be pretty unfair. But they benefit the most from America so they should pay the most.
It is true,I want Indiana and Arkansas to keep their Religious Freedom Restoration Act to in place. It allows anyone to discriminate anyone they chooses base off their religious beliefs. That mean LGBT, black, minorities and whomever they choose to discriminate. The reason I want it to stay in place is because of the backlash it is and will cause. We see business, conventions and other groups boycotting these states; which hits them hard economically . This will make other states to think twice if they are thinking about passing their own RFRA.
These bills also show what the Republican party is really about. They have become a religious party who, like ISIS, believes in strict social codes. The GOP and ISIS are vehemently against homosexuality and feel that it is an abomination to God. This is based off of their interpretation of their religious text. This opposition will drives people away from the GOP,because America has became a more tolerant nation. We are progressing in that way; which is nice to see.
I have no problem with these people, and here is why, we will get smart, hard worker people that will contribute to our nation and help boost the economy, which I am all for. We get a lot of smart immigrants who go to our colleges, get out, start businesses and contribute to the economy. Excellent.
Also I do not want to take a mother or father away from their kids. That puts pressure on our desperately sad social services. I do not want to send a kid who came here as a child, grew up here and is American anyone else. All that kid knows is our country and being an American . He is an American.
Also immigrants do jobs that Americans will not do. Plan and simple. That crop is not going to pick itself. And this was recently proven when a farm put out a call for workers to pick their crops and they got no one to pick it. And that is just a hard fact.
I don’t get the hatred that is generated over people trying to make a better life for themselves in the supposed Land of Opportunity. .
These people are trying to obtain the American dream which, if they do, America is better for it, and boosts our economy. Which is a great thing. Also the business community wants something done because of just that.
We need to get over ourselves.
So you hear #GOP politicians say “I’m not a science when it comes to climate change” So my question is are they instant scientist if a doctor would say their child had cancer? Or is that somehow different.
Truth is if we did something about Climate Change, and invested heavily into renewable energy it would be an economic boom for our country, because people would be working and spending their paychecks into the economy. Remember, consumer spending is what creates jobs, not rich people.
