Dont sugar coat it; most of us have been active participants.
The majority of us went to government schools, went to federally subsidized colleges, maybe received government PELL grants, government backed mortgages.
I doubt there are many people in the country today that are not in some way dipping in to that great government feeding trough.
I will admit that I am reluctantly one of the many hogs at that trough.
we all paid back our loans, that’s the difference. nowadays people think that’s optional. i got private academic scholarships. also worked during college and was somehow able to study and work and have some fun.
