Policies on student grants, minimum wage hurt taxpayers

Published 12:00am Saturday, December 29, 2007

It is so nice to see that Sen. Brown is so proud of what they did in year one.

Look what they did for the Pell grants. By increasing them it was to help the student for his college bill that would be OK, but thenSen. Kennedy said it would be OK for the college to use some of this money for lobbing Congress.

Good news for the senators, but bad news for the taxpayer. He also said that they increased the minimum wage, but all this did was give them all more money to give away.

Good for Congress, but bad for working man again as everything will rise in cost for more salary and social security. As before, good for Congress, bad for working man.

The word of the day is Hydrofluosilicic acid.
