I know this is a bit old, but one thing that struck me about Senator Obama’s victory speech in Wisconsin was this portion of the speech,
It’s the dream of the teacher who works at Dunkin Donuts after school just to make ends meet. She needs better pay, and more support, and the freedom to do more than just teach to the test. And if her students want to go on to college, they shouldn’t fear decades of debt. That’s why I’ll make college affordable with an annual $4,000 tax credit if you’re willing to do community service, or national service. We will invest in you, but we’ll ask you to invest in your country.
Why is it that whenever a politician wants to make it easier for people to go to college they do it via indentured service?
