    The more students that go to college, the better jobs they can get.

    The better the job, the more taxes they pay, plus less reliance on public assistance.

    How many of our current economic woes can be attributed to young people just out of college saddled with so much debt they can't rent an apartment or buy furniture, much less get married and start a family like their parents did? Maybe Rick Santorum should be more concerned about that instead of availability of contraception.

    Now to try to end the wars we ask our gay and straight soldiers to fight. -- Chris Hayes (modified)
