Virginia Foxx

Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has "little tolerance" for people with student loans because she worked her way through school:

That world doesn't exist any more, and she is among the people who have destroyed it! Has she checked college prices recently? (E.g., does she have any children or grandchildren?) College costs, particularly at public (state or local) colleges, have skyrocketed. Here, San Jose State was $98 a semester in the 1970s. It's thousands a year now. Private colleges have gone way up too. It's really not possible to work your way through any more. And it's worth pointing out that the cost increases at public colleges are due to reductions in state funding...and those reductions were sponsored and put in place by Republicans.

I think she spoke about a less than $2k loan which was paid back over time. She is so bad it takes two xx's. A great example of women being able to be equally awful with men.

Yep, when you say "thousands" it could easily get to $10 thousand if you take summer classes.

And that's before books (and parking!)

And you could also live off campus cheap in those days not to mention eat cheap even at restaurants and cafes (and they had "real" food). I could see rescaling the economy back to that but it would upset all those who are hooked on the "fluff."

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
