According to Paul Ryan, the until now unheard of fifth horseman of the apocalypse (riding a red, white and blue horse representing poverty), students should stop asking for rational and affordable tuition costs and instead work extra jobs. Three jobs to be exact.
According to Ryan the Pell Grants which provide millions of low and middle class students up to $5,500 toward tuition per year is no longer sustainable. What Ryan believes is sustainable though is billions in tax breaks for big oil companies, billions of tax breaks for income on investment dividends, tax breaks on corporate jets, as well as tax breaks for heirs of million dollar estates.
As Gerald Ford said, “a government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”
