  • Cuts and Gains: Budget details at a glance
    Munsterball
    Education is the worst thing to cut. A lot of kids who uses this Pell Grant will not be able to because it will eventually become a "first come, first serve bases." USA students already lag behind and even some of the third world countries has surpassed this country education standard. What a joke with cutting the education. Now that the budget funding has been passed to Sept. You wonder what other types of cuts the republicans are going to cry over. fed Employees had better start saving at the monent while one can now. I got a feeling that we will be facing the bs again. I say go to ther polls and vote, vote these radical congress idiots out.

    Reality
    Additional cuts prevented include: NPR, AmeriCorps public service program, food safety inspections, the National Endowment for the Arts, Head Start, Community Development Block Grants and Pell college tuition grants. Where does it cut the free money Pell Grants? The ENTIRE education budget should be cut because public schools don't educate anymore, they indoctrinate kids in a socialist marxist agenda.

    C'mon, give Paul Ryan a chance. He'll get around to it. Kids won't need an education in 'Sweatshop America' the Republican'ts are building.

    There will be no "Sweatshop America" under Ryan's budget. Even those jobs are going to China.

    Schools don't educate because they are denied the funds and resources they need to teach kids. The solution? Cut their budgets even more! I bet you served in the Bush II administration.

    Where do you get the idea that public schools indoctrinate socialist marxist agenda. The only way I can figure that one is that you are so far to the right that anything left of the John Birch Society is socialist in your mind.------------------------ Sorry, I am a public school graduate. I was a conservative in the 60's compared to my compatriots at that time. I moved a li9ttle to the left under Reagan, but am still only moderate. The country has moved a great deal to the right.--------------------- My children went to public schools recently. Tell me what socialist agenda is taught.

  • What Budget Cuts??
    Retiredmsg
    Based on what I am reading, obama and harry reid kicked butt. The republicans didn't get any of the crap they were crying over and "we" taxpayers are left holding the bag. What will happen when we run out of credit?

    ...Pell Grants are generally obtained by the 'third world' immigrants that come here legally or otherwise...and also by people out of work and barely surviving but try qualifying for one unless you're homeless and living under the 14th Street bridge! As for other countries allegedly surpassing us in education, I say, big deal! We employ quite a few of the braniac's from other countries, either here or through outsourcing! So, the Japanese can build robots, etc...it didn't help them with nuclear power and tsunamis, did it? While they're still learning the 3-R's, we're ahead of them in development of some of the best test-takers in the world (re: SOLs, etc...)! Our 'hang-up' with 4 years (or more) of college for our young people is quickly getting reversed by technology! I say return our education system to what the Germans have, for example...you become an 'academic' or a 'tradesman' at a point in your secondary education career...enough of this elitist attitude of trying to turn us all into a bunch of Einsteins! If you want it, go for it...if not, pick a technology, trade, etc...and receive training appropriate...THAT's how we build our base of solid workers and achievers! Academics is only as good as the brain that is receiving it and some of us aren't hard-wired to design deep-space vehicles or search for the cure for cancer! Don't make our kids just another 'brick in the wall'!

    The government does not force anyone to go into academics. Those who want to go into trades can do so. The problem with your comment is that those who want to go into academics will not be allowed to do so due to lack of money.--------------- Do the Germans force those who want to go into academics, but do not meet some unknown standard, to go into trades? Or can they still do academics if they want to?
