Cutbacks and fees

CambriaJuly 17, 2013 

The Republicans are cutting back on the amount we pay for food stamps, and thus many children will not have enough food to eat. To make matters worse, they are allowing college fees to rise, and the rates of interest to rise above what most students can afford to pay.

Fortunately, when I went to college, I paid very little to get my degree, but the Democrats controlled Congress then and a poor kid like me got a college education . That was due largely to then-Gov. Pat Brown, who helped build a system of colleges in California. I say bless him.
