    I'm not sure how a full-time college student is supposed to come up with $50,000 per year, unless it's selling things Virginia Foxx probably doesn't approve of.
    I'm not sure either, but why would a full-time college student need to come up with $50,000 per year?  College doesn't cost anywhere near that much money.

    Unless you intentionally go to one of the most expensive schools in the country, you will not need to come up this kind of money for school.

    •  Actually, it does cost that. (0+ / 0-)

      Here are the budget figures for an academic year at U.C.L.A., which is hardly the most expensive university in the country.

      If you wanted to go to a private school, like one of the Claremont Colleges, it would be more:

      Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers and pot smokers, though.

        ...in the USA.  Only about 120 colleges nationwide charge that much money for a year of college.

        So as I said, unless you intentionally go to one of the most expensive schools in the country, a college student doesn't need anywhere near $50,000 per year.
