Sorry to talk politics but this whole national debt issue is really starting to wear on me. They are talking about making cuts in Financial aid for college students. The pell grant is the only thing keeping me in school at this point. I think there are other areas that can be cut. Why are we taking this whole issue out on the people who are trying to further educate themselves? They are messing with America's future. It really pisses me off. Okay.. vent over.

Thanks, I just really want to finish school. This fall will be my third semester as a full time student since I went "back". I just really want to be able to earn my degree without having to take out loans and put our family in debt. So far I've been able to go to school for free thanks to the pell grant. I've already got this semester and next semester paid for by the government (which I think is awesome that they have that option available for those willing to do the paper work). Honestly if they make a substantial cut and my classes wont be paid for next year.. I'll probably have to drop out. I don't want to put a financial burden on my family : ( I just hope they get things figured out.

So busy lately, I am damned near falling asleep sitting up. I think a nap is in order.

 I completely agree with you.  Granted I have been out of college for more than 15 years, but a good chunk of my education was paid for by Pell grants and without them I most likely wouldn't have gone.

Cutting education on any level pisses me off because it will effect all of us in the future.  Having a country of adults whose education has lacked will only make things more difficult on our generation as we get older and need to rely on the younger generation for our care.

Sorry... my son's therapy sessions may have to be cut because of cuts they are making to the DoD

I'm sorry.  Unfortunately the politicians only seem to make cuts that will affect the ones who need help most and help the ones that are wealthy.
