Ninety professors from Georgetown have gone public with a letter attacking Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryans budget proposal but the bill of particulars in the missive does not match up to the content of his plan. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., chairs the U. S. House Budget Committee.
Cuts to anti-hunger programs have devastating consequences, they wrote. Last year, one in six Americans lived below the official poverty level and over 46 million Americans almost half of them children used food stamps for basic nutrition. We also know how cuts in Pell Grants will make it difficult for low-income students to pursue their educations at colleges across the nation, including Georgetown. At a time when charities are strained to the breaking point and local governments have a hard time paying for essential services, the federal government must not walk away from the most vulnerable.
Heres what the Ryan budget states on federal aid to higher education: The governments well-intentioned approach to higher education and job training in America has failed those who most need these forms of assistance. Federal tuition subsidies are often captured by (and to a certain extent drive) rapidly rising tuition costs for those higher-education programs that should be the first rung on the ladder of opportunity. Meanwhile, dozens of job-training programs suffer from overlapping responsibilities and too often lack accountability. This budget begins to address the problem of tuition inflation and consolidates a complex maze of dozens of job‐training programs into more accessible, accountable career scholarships aimed at empowering American workers with the resources they need to pursue their dreams.

What else can you expect from 90 Professors at Georgetown?
I wonder what these 90 Professors spend in donations to good causes?
Whatever 99 professors are against, I am for.
90 university employees make demands:
Empower the American workers with the resources they need to pursue their dreams! demand the aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky radical, psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue.
Would that be a SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS. I know how the last consensus the socialist democrats were peddling turned out. Have these professors are flat out commies. The other half were busy planning their vacation or getting stoned. That routine fits right in the with democrats work ethics.
Georgetown profs: “Things are working so well with so much poverty and need that we must keep it exactly the same.”
If 90 Georgetown professors are against it, it must be good for America. The more the left opposes an idea, the more organized they get in their opposition, the greater the likelihood that idea is both truthful and good. Ryan’s economic plans are great. Whatever is opposite Ryan’s plans is bad, very very bad.
Hey, why not post it all right here?
You can stop being a blogpimp and God will love you again.
