Because democrats are idiots.

I’m tired of these clowns talking about free college. Let’s work on some literacy and math skills for our high school graduates first, eh?

Exactly. My husband and I paid his student loans off. We did this....no one else. I should not have to pay for a professional student (and there are some who do this) when we've been saving for our kids to go to college when their time comes and they want to.

I read that it's working pretty well.

New restaurants opened, more workers hired, those who worked full hours before were making more $$$, of course. Those who worked less hours had their hours cut more, but they still home the same money as before, for fewer hours.

Long term results aren't in, but it's working well.

If businesses would pay the workers decently, a law wouldn't be necessary. But that's the story of business in America.

Leading to knee replacements due to being obese.
