Wilbur Ross – ‘Billionaire Putz of the Week’

Via: Huffington Post

1

Take heart, downtrodden rich people of America: Another famous rich guy has heard your cries of persecution and is joining the small but growing 1st Percent Defense Brigade.

Billionaire bottom-feeder Wilbur Ross on Tuesday declared that “the 1 percent is being picked on for political reasons” and that poor people should stop their gripin’ and get themselves an education if they ever want to stop being part of the 99 percent.

“Education is the way that people get out of the ghetto and into, if not the 1 percent, something close to it”. (See photo)

Ross pledged his allegiance to another billionaire, the gnome king Sam Zell, who last week told Bloomberg TV that the 1 percent are “being pummeled because it’s politically convenient to do so” and because the poors are simply incapable of working as hard as the rich, leaving them seething with jealousy.

Lazy, lazy jealousy.

Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) – GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: TPM

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) says he supports student loans, so America’s youth can get a good education.
BUT, the government getting involved in education, he believes, puts the country on a slippery slope that could lead to, say, something like the Holocaust.

At a town hall event at a college in Maryland on Wednesday, Bartlett said he could not find “a shred of evidence” in the Constitution that the government should be involved in education.

It’s “certainly a good idea” to give students loans, Bartlett said in a video posted by the Washington Post.

“But if you can ignore the Constitution to do something good today, tomorrow you will be ignoring the Constitution to do something bad,” he explained. You could. There are more people in our, in America today of German ancestry than any other

The Holocaust that occurred in Germanyhow in the heck could that happen?

And when you start down the wrong road, it can be a very slippery slope.”

Student Loans Could Be America’s Next ‘Debt Bomb,’ Report Finds

Via: Huffington Post

Growing numbers of Americans are finding themselves bankrupt, with their college diplomas partially to blame.

Slightly more than 80 percent of bankruptcy attorneys say the number of their potential clients with student loan debt have increased “significantly” or “somewhat” in the past three to four years, according to a survey by the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. And there’s little hope those debtors will get out of their obligations; 95 percent of bankruptcy attorneys surveyed said that very few student loan debtors will be discharged from their loan as a result of undue hardship.

Take it from those of us on the frontline of economic distress in America: This could very well be the next debt bomb for the U.S. economy,” William E. Brewer, Jr., president of the NACBA said in a statement accompanying the survey.

As college costs spiral out of control and public universities cut back on financial aid, more students and their parents are taking on loans to pay tuition, according to the Los Angeles Times.

At about one trillion dollars, Americans’ student loan debt surpassed credit card debt for the first time in history in August 2010.
