Maybe there's something wrong with me but I wish the government would stop promising and get the fck out of these matters.
I wonder when a politician will say he will end grants to college kids and get the government out of student loans all together, remove taxholes that subsidize poeple's lifestyles (ie the mortgage interest deduction), cut the army down and get out of countries America shouldn't be in. Instead each group panders to their group and promises things we simply can not afford.
