General Obama has a mighty army of legislative minions ready to push through a radical agenda that will change America in dangerous and unfortunate ways. One area of contention is higher education. Obama is trying to take control of the health care, banking and automobile industries through his faux socialism, so why not higher ed?
The battle in higher ed begins tomorrow in the House Labor Committee. The Dems control the show, and have an army of witnesses designed to show that deep sixing privately subsidized loans, making Pell Grants an entitlement, and dropping more money out of airplanes will somehow help students and America. Don't believe it. I don't.
I will be testifying for the minority (in Congress) view tomorrow, and maybe CSPAN will cover it, beginning at 10 a.m. EDT. I expect some fireworks. Stay tuned.
