"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Romney's "Sketchy Deal" for Higher Education

 StudentDebtCrisis.org Email:
With only two weeks left until Election Day, it is extremely important that voters be made aware of what a Romney/Ryan Administration would mean for higher education. That is why we put together a new video, detailing Romney’s “sketchy” attitudes on the topic. 
For those voters who care about making higher education more accessible and affordable, Governor Romney's rhetoric on the campaign trail with respect to higher education has been shockingly tone-deaf and utterly detached from reality. 
It should come as no surprise that StudentDebtCrisis.org believes that a Romney/Ryan Administration would be an unmitigated disaster in terms of making college more affordable, easing the burden of exorbitant levels of student loan debt, and going after for-profit schools for their fraudulent practices. 
Because this is an issue that matters a great deal to us, we just released a brand new video highlighting Gov. Romney's ill-informed and wrong-headed positions regarding higher education.

Republicans keep asking why students are deserting the Republican Party -- all they need to do is look in the mirror as they have gone hard left.  Most students could care less about social issues but they do care about student loans.  In today's Romney world all you have to do is ask your parents to put you through college and it is going to magically happen which is not the case in most families.  

The Middle Class is making less while the rich get richer but now the wealthy Mitt Romney wants us to pay for college for our children and bankrupt the family because if you cannot pay for it, you shouldn't go to a non-profit college. There is one caveat to that scenario as it is okay to take out student loans to go to for profit universities who are owned by Romney's big donors.  

It is mind boggling that Republicans are falling for Romney -- have they collectively quit using their brains to figure things out?  It is as plain as day but they act like that everything is okay and Romney is this great candidate some even comparing him to Reagan.  When some Republicans swallowed the Romney koolaid, they threw common sense out the window.

Once again Romney has his facts wrong on the cost of for profit versus non-profit universities with non-profits being much cheaper.  It might be easier to say when he is right which is not very often it seems.  Easier to lie then tell the truth for Mitt Romney.
