Michael F. Shaughnessy –

One of the things that a lot of people agree on is the cost of a college education. Some people feel that parents should be paying, or should at least have started saving after the child was born; others feel that these students should be working part time during the school year, or perhaps during the summer and saving money, and others feel that instead of spending money on movies, and parties, and beer, that they should be saving frugally so as not to end up in debt at the end of their college careers.

In one of his latest posts, George Leef takes on these issues and the issue of one Representative Tom Reed, who apparently has figured out the difficulty and who may or may not report back to us after April 1st- we shall see what kinds of responses he gets.

I often think of the phrase ” making a molehill out of a mountain or making a mountain out of a molehill. In this instance, I am not sure. Often some representative want to show their constituents that they are making a lot of legislation on Capitol Hill – whether that legislation will make a dent or make a difference remains to be seen. In any event – enjoy reading George Leef’s posting below !
