GOP on Education: We Ain't Payin' for It!

Click on graphic for enlarged view.

Yet another reason to vote against the wrongheadedness of the Republican Party, where education of the American middle and lower classes is seen as a ballot box threat (as it should be):

"Mr. Romney’s response to a high school senior worried about college costs is arguably even more significant [than Rick Santorum's bias against a college education], because what he said points the way to actual policy choices that will further undermine American education.

"Here’s what the candidate told the student: 'Don’t just go to one that has the highest price. Go to one that has a little lower price where you can get a good education. And, hopefully, you’ll find that. And don’t expect the government to forgive the debt that you take on.'"
