    Skip a couple of generations? no. I didn't say that. Let's discuss what I say, not what you wish I had said. We need a better managed program that returns to it's loan roots. If Democrats think of it as a gift, or step up,it's no wonder the program is in trouble.

    Obama changed the way we count deportations. He added in people turned away at the border. Other presidents through history have listed them different. If you don't count his creative bookkeeping, he drops below Bush's last 4 years. Add to that his violation of the 14th amendment "equal justice under the law" and his enforcement record of immigration has caused states to create new laws.

    In 2010 he gave 3.5 million green cards and visas. At a time of 9% unemployment. Obama scares the middle class.

    So richard your answer is to skip a couple generations education, they'll catch up later?
    Obama has shamed GW's illegal labor enforcement, and yet fruit rots on the trees because jobless Americans won't do that kind of work?

    Trickle down, torrent up is what has destroyed this counties middle class.

    Mayor Julian Castro doesn't get it. Like him I knew people in high school that had the ability, but not the means to go to college. Facing one trillion dollars of past due student debt, we need to question student loans. We need better assurance that they will be paid back. They were never meant to be a hand up, but a loan.

    Nothing has affected our middle class more than the lack of enforcement of Obama on illegal labor. This country doesn't need another 1.7 (or more) guest workers to take jobs from Americans, and live off our social programs. Obama is destroying the middle class, and will continue with his executive orders. Students are just the beginning, next come the parents.
