good Scholarships that pay for most of your schooling are incredibly hard to obtain... almost no matter what your forced to end up hoofing 20k in debt by the end of it all AT LEAST 20k, that is..
the main way that kids could go to school 4+ years ago was that the parents would just be able to take out money on the house, and bingo, you're set.
Out here in california, where our house prices have dropped literally 70% from where they were in 2006, its just not possible (my parents cant do anything to help me with college, because they owe more on the house than its even worth... same with most people)
that, coupled with the overcrowded and severely underfunded state schools here in california (they arent accepting any new students SYSTEMWIDE -thats 23 campuses for the spring. awesome eh?), and the wayyyy too expensive (even with scholarships) private schools, i'm being forced to either wait out who knows how long until a spot opens up in a state school, move and get residency somewhere else, or hope i win the lottery in order to pay/even GET INTO school.
Oh, and I have a 3.4 GPA, and I like to think i'm pretty well educated... Being 'smart' doesnt translate to having more money...
according to the constitution if you help one portion of the populace you have to help ALL portions of the populace. thats from the Constitution........... it doesnt say it in the bill but it says it in our constitution so if government health care gets passed (with nothing about illegals) it will still have to cover them
AND, if they arent included in he bill why is it that whenever obama, biden, pelosi, or any of the other people open their mouths about the uninsured they INCLUDE the illegals in that number?
Do you think that every other news station is fair and balanced.? ha
I'm not hating anyone here, I just think it's funny when liberals just can't take fox news, one news station that bothers them so much. If fox news was full of lies, they wouldn't be doing as well as they are right now. Just saying.
I don't think it's completly broken. lol
15% of Americans don't have healthcare (fact), that includes illegal aliens and people who chose not to have it. 1-2% of Americans don't have healthcare who need it. Is that a completly broken system?
