Rangel: ‘There Is No Reason Why a Young Person Should Have to Pay for College’

President Obama made some proposals Thursday about how we can reduce college costs around the country.

Speaking about this on MSNBC’s Martin Bashir show hours later, Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) actually said, and I quote, “There is no reason why a young person should have to pay for college.”

JOY-ANN REID, SUBSTITUTE HOST: I first want to get your reaction to the President's education proposal today.
CONGRESSMAN CHARLIE RANGEL, (D-N.Y.): I think it's exciting, and certainly it’s going to bring in accountability. You know, we have universities scattered all over the world. Sometimes you think that tuition means nothing to a large group of people who pay these enormous salaries to college presidents. But if you're talking about production, if you're talking about what is the college really giving someone that doesn't want a worldwide education, they just want to be able to compete, this makes sense.

But you know something, Joy? There is no reason why a young person should have to pay for college education, because who does it benefit except a nation? Who are we competing against? Not ourselves, but China and other industrialized countries, they decide what they need, and they provide the incentives. Here we don't have nurses and doctors, and then when a person gets out of health school, I mean out of medical school, they can’t get the money to pay off their debt. It doesn’t make sense.
"To find out who your real rulers are, simply look to those whom you CANNOT criticize..."

I've concluded that the only thing Charlie Rangel has to offer is division. He (and unfortunately most democratic politicians, or should I say most career politicians?) seem to focus only on the differences that can be used to divide people, rather than focusing on all our similarities that could be used to unite us.

Career politicians like Rangel are focused on creating problems that empower themselves and government, rather than finding solutions that empower and unite the people. Rangel is a good example of why we need 1-term limits for congressmen (and there are plenty of republican examples as well).

This goes right along with Rangel's stance on him paying his taxes.
Tolerance now means OBEY!!!!

fire starters.

They go around starting hundreds of little fires for the people to run around, stamping out or avoiding because they are too big.

We need to go after the arsonists and get them out of office so they can't harm anyone else. Let them wallow in the misery of their own bad choices instead of torturing the souls of others.
If you can't trust people with freedom, how can you trust them with power ?
