We don't need students—we need soldiers!

The Republicans are proposing a $300 million reduction in funding for the federal Pell grant program, which was developed to encourage poor and working-class students to go to college. What will the kids do who can't afford to go to college? Enlist in the military!

That seems to be the whole idea, and it's a disgusting one.
