Help begins at home

The cost of college tuition just keeps going up.

Hard-working young people have to bust their rear end to pay for college. If something is not done, the gap between those graduating high school and those able to attend college will just keep on growing.

I predict that in as little as 15 years college will only be for the rich, while young people would give anything to be able to afford a good college education.

Others flip burgers just so they can pay off their student loan debt.

The government needs to stop helping all of these other countries and start helping people right here at home. One way they can start is by making college affordable to all.
