Young people have turned on President Obama. According to a recent poll, 71% of Obama voters regret voting for him in 2012: http://washingtonexaminer.com/poll-71-of-obama-supporters-regret-voting-for-his-reelection/article/2544165
Young people are realizing the massive debt is going to fall on them. What does government do? Give more presents!
Today in the ISU newspaper – the Daily Vidette:
Link cards reduce grocery shopping stress
The state of Illinois may be able to ease financial stress and relieve the “poor college student” title by providing a Link card for those who are eligible.
Illinois Link cards are directly related to cash assistance and food stamps. They work much like debit cards. Link cards are preloaded each month providing a source of money or credits for people or families that cannot afford to pay for groceries, rent, utilities or other necessary bills each month.
Link cards are accepted at most grocery stores and ATMs in the United States. The amount of money on the card is preloaded each month relative to the needs of families or individuals.
The State of Illinois is broke, the Federal Government is broke, but students are encouraged to use Food Stamps.
Remember when people would rather starve than take welfare? I hope these kids are smart enough to realize they are being used to destroy their futures with more debt.
Remember when people were embarrassed to be on welfare? Remember when people understood taking money from the government meant they were taking it from fellow citizens? Remember when being responsible for yourself was the norm instead of the exception?
Soon nobody will remember.
