Watching Paul Ryan’s House budget hearing, does one laugh, cry or vomit? Extreme Republican partisanship, ignorance, stupidity, inanity, obfuscation, all extremely displayed.

Only one of many, many items.

Everyone identifies education as a prime necessity. Corporations decry too few educated people to meet demands, yet ever-increasing numbers of students drop out of college as costs skyrocket and government investment decreases.

Student debt now stands at $1 trillion, and unlike corporations students cannot claim bankruptcy. Debt follows throughout their lives.

Also, unlike corporations, where money is borrowed at almost zero interest and loaned making money, student loan repayments will be increased from 3+ percent to 6+ percent under Ryan’s budget.

Ryan Republicans seem out to prove that indeed government is the problem, not the solution. Indeed, schools fail to educate. Logic, integrity have never been learned, at least by them.
