The ‘Free Stuff’ Party

Posted on | August 10, 2015 | 52 Comments

Democrats are Santa Claus, and it’s Christmas every day with lots of toys for good little boys and girls who vote Democrat:

With Americans shouldering $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, and about eight million of them in default, Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday will propose major new spending by the federal government that would help undergraduates pay tuition at public colleges without needing loans.
Mrs. Clinton does not go as far as her Democratic presidential opponents in promising to end tuition debt altogether, since her plan would still require a family contribution that could involve parents taking out loans to cover some tuition.
But her proposals, which would cost $350 billion over 10 years and include new refinancing options for those already struggling with debt, are an aggressive response to what many Americans — Democrats and Republicans alike — see as a worsening crisis forcing young adults to move back home with their parents and struggle to get out from under repayment bills.

(Via Memeorandum.) As has been pointed out by economist Dan Mitchell, Hillary’s plan will actually increase tuition.

This never-ending something-for-nothing hustle — the Democrat Party’s remorseless expansion of the Welfare State, so that the government is supposed to give everbody everything, for free! — is unsustainable, and is corrupting our national character. It is immoral to believe what Democrats believe, and it is immoral to do what Democrats do. It is sinful, wicked and wrong and, hey, did I mention that feminists are promoting witchcraft in Women’s Studies courses? This is relevant, because if the federal government is going to throw $350 billion at college kids, you know a lot of those the kids will major in Women’s Studies. This is what Hillary wants, more college-educated witches.

    If it’s really the leftists who are addicted to Uncles Sam’s teat, why do more red states slop up to the trough and take more than blue states and they take it from blue states? To hear your slant, one would think it’s the other way around.
