    Yeah, I am sure the mega corporations like McDonalds will be fine. It's the small businesses that will go under. Like the one AoC worked at.


    If you really want to see what Democrats version of America looks like economically look at France. Absolute **** show over there. They have everything American liberal dream of and they are still protesting. They should be protesting against themselves for voting for that crap in the first place but voters never blame themselves for voting for bad policies.

    $1,560,000,000,000.

    1.56 trillion dollars. That's the total student

    loan debt in the United States.

    We have a crisis on our hand — and predatory loan

    companies are profiting off of it. We need bold ideas:

    we need free college for all.

    Why would you imagine we have this much debt?

    Would do you think would happen if college was free?

    Will Trump Trade the Future for a Hill of Beans?

    The outlines of a potential trade deal with China suggest President Trump once again is prioritizing superficial gains over America’s long-term economic interests.

    It’s easy to sell soybeans to China. The Chinese are voracious consumers of the world’s raw materials. Until 2018, shiploads of soybeans from the American Midwest streamed to the processing plants that dot the Chinese coast. So there is no reason to applaud the news that the Chinese government has offered to guarantee large purchases of American soybeans as part of a potential trade deal with the United States that the Trump administration is pushing to complete by late March or early April.

    Instead, it is a worrying sign that the administration may settle for an ephemeral victory at the expense of America’s long-term economic interests.

    People just need to be smarter and realize that college for the most part is a scam.

    The textbook industry has essentially destroyed the second hand market. They require you to buy a code to even participate in the class. And some teachers who have tried to go around this by printing their own textbooks have gotten in trouble by the uni's.
