Skip to comments.College students learn of Obama's secret Pell Grant cuts
Posted on 11/28/2012 8:43:39 AM PST by Baynative
Sorry, college students. President Obama has cut your access to Pell Grants by 33%; he just forgot to mention it before Election Day.
(Excerpt) Read more at examiner.com ...
They still won’t learn anything from it so what’s the difference?
They will learn, however, that it is Bush’s Fault(tm).
I guess students will have to borrow more to make up the difference.
Even when they are forced to live with their parents until they’re 40 years old they will NEVER learn and they will still vote for Obama or the next Obama.
The American Idol generation will follow Hollywood and the “cool” crowd right to the gallows.
A cut to 12 semesters of eligibility? Six years? Oh, how harsh.
I wonder if the young idiots who voted for O will read this on their smart phones, the same ones O campaign texted ‘I love you’ to them on before the election
“Twelve years of college down the drain...”
S U C K E R S ! ! ! ! ! ! !............
The only one who’s going to be laughing louder than Barack Hussein himself at all these little muslo-in-your-face-white-boy betrayals is me!
I just made a point of emailing the article to the young idiots I know who voted for Obama. hahaha, I love it.
Educations are wasted on anyone halfwitted enough to vote for Obama. Put them on the soviet plantation, and teach them how to work.
I actually agree with the reduction from 18 to 12 semesters. A student could do a 5 year degree in 12 semesters. The only reason it would take more then 12 semesters to complete a bachelor degree is if the student was working and going to school part time. If they’re working, they don’t need the grant for more then 12 semesters.
It is to laugh...
Most of the truly clueless won’t realize this unless Jon Stewart tells them about it....or until they apply for their next semester’s handout. It really doesn’t matter if you get a college degree when half the graduates are jobless.
They should eliminate Pell Grants completely. They should eliminate any and every kind of government sponsored or endorsed financial aid. The cost of post-secondary education rises much faster than it needs to simply because the free market has been tainted with “free” money.
Eliminate financial aid, especially these nasty Pell Grants, and the cost of a college education will fall dramatically. The federal government has no business inserting itself into the education “industry.”
I know what you’re you are saying, but they will learn somethings, like:
America is bad, capitalism is bad, being white is bad,
believing in Jesus Christ is bad, being armed is bad,
being hetero is bad etc.
Universities are the factories that continue to pump out
the brain-dead like Occupy-people, Sandra Slut, and Obama-phone lady. We continue to fund our enemies, sounds like a
losing battle doesn’t it?
If one applies for an ROTC scholarship, the government will only consider you for its best scholarships in highly technical fields of study. HOWEVER, if you get a Pell Grant you can major in Art History.
If you are middle class and need money for college, enlist and get a GI Bill. If you are poor, get a Pell Grant.
The Government chastised the banking industry as predatory lenders for giving credit cards to students in college. Some student ran up bills of $5K. Congress pass Frank-Dodd that basically outlawed credit cards to young people. However, the government will directly lend you up to $55K for college without any idea you can ever pay back the money. Simple tests like income potential of your major are NOT applied. By law, student loans can not be discharged in bankruptcy (your credit cards can). So who is more predatory, Banks or the government?
yeah...and so Romney’s campaign team which was able to collect and spend 710 million dollars..somehow “neglected” to put this data out in front of college students...which historically have voted for Obama?
IMHO...sounds like could be some form of professional malpractice/and or fraud...
” I wonder if the young idiots who voted for O will read this on their smart phones, the same ones O campaign texted I love you to them on before the election “
They are indoctrinated. Their “American Idol” won.
I would be very interesting to hear what they have to say about this news. I’d like to know what, if anything, they think.
It revealed that the number of semesters a student could receive a Pell Grant had been cut from 18 semesters down to 12.
I’ve made personal strides to stop “funding our enemies” like firing my daughters piano teacher after 6 years when I saw an Obama sticker on his car, changed barbers for the same reason and stopped getting barbecue at our favorite spot. I told all of these people why and they all seemed hurt and sad which pleased me greatly!
Yeah, but they get to stay on their parent’s health insurance until they are 26...
Awwwww. The Great Gift Giver took away some of his followers’ gifts.
The media deliberately and intentionally, with full knowledge and awareness suppressed mentioning it.
None of it surprises me.
I heard Jon Stewart was named for his parents piece of bathroom furniture.
He’s been talking S__t ever since!
Good for you, I do the same when given a chance.
Keep the faith.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
‘yeah...and so Romneys campaign team which was able to collect and spend 710 million dollars..somehow neglected to put this data out in front of college students...which historically have voted for Obama?

So you wanted Romney to keep this entitlement? Isn’t the conservative message ‘cut entitlements’?
Good job. Also need to tell them that “After all, Obama did say to get REVENGE”.......just doing what I’m told.
WOO HOO I am very proud of you. Especially the piano teacher. That is great. I am on the lookout for “enemies” myself, but so far, have found none to fire. My hairdresser and I always talk politics; he thinks 0bama is a bozo out to destroy us.
“... capitalism is bad,...”
The 10th plank of the communist manifesto calls for free public “education”.
America’s re-education system is a giant Marxist moron mill. They “educated” the electorate, and achieved the desired result.
Hopefully your daughter wasn’t sad and hurt about losing her piano teacher.
The thinning of the herd is about to begin. The parasites and fools will be the first to go. I just pray that the Good Lord allows me to live to see them starve to death.
Good for you!
I think you are missing our point. Our point is regarding young O voters who believed him. It's not about our views on education funding.
Technically Obama last year signed the bill cutting this next year after the split congress passed it, and the Romney campaign was not smart enough to call Obama out on his deception on it.
IF they respond, I’ll let you know. I expect to hear crickets. Because, you see, they are so much smarter than I, and Obama is cooler than all of us!
Romney to meet with Obama in the White House tomorrow morning, so this means Obama wants Romney to sell his agenda to the RNC. My guess is Romney will help him. Even if Romney won’t help Obama, Obama now can plaster all over the MSM that he had “reached hands across to the Republicans to solve our problems” What an IDIOT Romney is!
That is very interesting.
The most evil and destructive policies are always sold as something good. We can attempt to educate others, but it’s almost pointless.
I’m not sure discernment can be taught, but I heard a comment from an educator on conservative talk radio that was very disappointing. He said that children are not taught critical thinking skills anymore, but they used to be.
There is also a group of people that have no passion for truth whatsoever, so they accept and propagate preposterous lies from politicians and their propaganda media.
Who would take Romney's advise? And what on? taxes? amnesty?
Romney would not be credible on those if he took Os side.
To be honest I think it would be great if he tried to as long as its not kept secret to us. I would really have some fun here.
The Piper will eventually demand payment; free foams and fool stamps notwithstanding.
” Obama to Romney: “Thanks Mitt. We pulled it off. No hard feelings I hope as I had to put on a good act. You were much more help to us than Buffiet ever will be. I hope Chris Chistie is as good as you at this in 4 years”
No, I didn’t miss it.
And just by Romney showing up to chat, Obama has the perfect photo-op. I swear, we are cursed.
I think you are missing our point. Our point is regarding young O voters who believed him. It’s not about our views on education funding.
Do not get distracted by shiney things. Keep you eye on the agenda. Personally, I think it should be cut back to 8 semesters.
This is a step in our direction.........................
The Dem channels was showing some polls that said that Christies NJ approval rating jumped up to 77% after hugging O on camera.
Maybe unpopular Romney is looking for that same Os magic touch to transform him into a human being in American’s eyes.
Not likely successful.
We are not cursed, we are screwed.
Hey, I can post links to all the posts here claiming back in 2010 that O would not even run for re-election because he didnt care,and he would veto tax cut extensions too (2010)
Back then Rush was selling that Koolaid with the standard results. "Don't Doubt me"
