  •  Financial Aid Laws (4+ / 0-)

    So the idea behind this law is obviously to suppress the vote.

    I guess I'm a little curious about the laws regarding applications for financial aid.  

    When I applied way back long ago, the rule had just been changed so that I was required to include my parents'  income.  REQUIRED.  I filled out a hardship form to say that I didn't have a mother, and that my father had sold our house when I turned 18, and that he had run off to Australia to begin his drinking again.  

    They didn't give a shit.  

    So, given that the federal government already makes the assumption that those students are dependents, would there be any way to make the argument that this constitutes conflicting rules when it comes to college attendance?

    I'm not sure how it would work, but it seems strange.
