Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: there is no such thing as free government handouts. When men like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders talk about free this or that, you have to understand someone is paying for it.
Democrats in Washington love to promise free health care, free housing and benefits, and even free college tuition for students. But they never get around to explain how the federal government, a bloated entity that operates in the red, can pay for all of it. What Biden is promising would cost more than the trillions he is throwing around.
And don’t think only the one percent will end up with the bill. Government spending always has a way of hurting middle and working-class folks. Something as expensive as free college tuition? Boy, I’d hate to see the tax burden on that one. The students benefiting from that will be so broke, they will never be able to buy a home.
Now, a major liberal voice in the media is slamming Biden’s big-ticket promise.
“[College] is a racket that sells you a very expensive ticket to the upper middle class,” Maher said…
“President Biden’s American Families Plan asks the taxpayers to pony up hundreds of billions so that everyone can go to college, and billions more for subsidized childcare so our kids can go to school while we go to school,” Maher continued…
“I know free college is a left-wing thing, but is it really liberal for someone who doesn’t go to college and makes less money to pay for people who do go and make more?”
“Yeah, I’m not f***ing paying for that,” Maher said. [Source: Daily Wire]
In a rare moment of clarity, liberal commentator Bill Maher bashed Biden’s plan of providing “free” college to American students. He accurately explained that modern “higher education” is a scam that has become “giant luxury daycare centers.” Maher even lamented how working-class Americans will have to pay for other people’s college tuition. Even he gets it, the rich won’t be paying for this, the rest of us will.
Maher even pointed out the elephant in the room: that most college students get worthless degrees that won’t help them in the real world. He mocked students who earn “visual and performing arts” degrees rather than something that could get them a job, like a degree in computer science or math.
In countries like China, they realize they need a solid education so they can compete in the global economy. But in America, braindead zoomers go to college to party and have an “experience.” The last thing on their minds is preparing for the future.
Maher echoes what many of us are thinking: should we be paying for that?
Yet the biggest idiot of them all, Joe Biden, pretends like this is a good idea. Never mind the fact that some of the best-paying jobs don’t require a college degree. Just as your plumber the next time you have a leaking pipe. He didn’t go to a fancy, four-year college, yet he’s earning six figures.
Perhaps Maher is on to something?
