First they wouldn't redistribute grades, no they feel they don't owe anything to our national debt although Obama is making sure they will be saddled with a ton of it.

Would college students sign a pledge vowing to pay their share (about $47,000)? The answer?
Well, there was this: “I don’t contribute to the national debt.”
This: “I don’t have any debt.”
And this: “It’s not my debt.”
We’ll take that as a “no.” But those curious responses beg the question: Have these college students ever taken an economics class? “It’s not my debt.” Really? Watch below:
‘Not My Debt’: College Students Refuse Pledge to Pay Their Share of National Debt | The Blaze


This is our youth today, greedy, needy and plain out BRAINWASHED! They really feel that they are OWED everything, but OWE nothing.

It isn't their debt, and it's not mine either.

Sure, young people can be spoiled... Older folks said the same thing about us many years ago...

They kind of have a point though, it really isn't their debt.....

Unfortunately, America's greatest generation isn't all that great. They're expecting to get back money from SS that was already spent on wasteful programs, some to benefit them (Bush's socialist medicare program being one). If the youth is expected to pay their share of the debt, America's "greatest generation" has to expect not to get SS.

I bet a whole lot of them don't think it's their debt because they're grabbing up all the financial aid and freebies they can. They are the problem not the solution.
