Recent polls show that many of Barack Obama’s mascot groups, including the wet-behind-the-ears starry-eyed, fresh-faced children that he is fond of using as wallpaper for his TelePrompTer readings, have soured on the One. The usual reason given is the Obamacare rollout fiasco, and the fact that they are starting to realize that after getting worthless college degrees, they are thousands of dollars in debt, and the only jobs they can find make them endlessly repeat the phrase “would you like fries with that?”
And guess what, my callow friends, the federal government is making big bucks on your misery. From USA Today:
The federal government made enough money on student loans over the last year that, if it wanted, it could provide maximum-level Pell Grants of $5,645 to 7.3 million college students.
The $41.3 billion profit for the 2013 fiscal year is down $3.6 billion from the previous year but it’s a higher profit level than all but two companies in the world: Exxon Mobil cleared $44.9 billion in 2012, and Apple cleared $41.7 billion.
If it’s any consolation, I’m positive that no one feels worse than Barack that you find yourselves in this situation.
Remember, as Barack himself has said, that hopey changey thing is real.
