Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced that families who make up to $100,000 now and $125,000 in 2018 will be eligible to send their children to state universities for free.
What a great deal for state residents who can afford to pay something toward college tuition. And what is cruel is the requirement that a student will have to attend college full time, because that leaves out poor children who would need to work to support themselves while attending college part time.
Why do Republican legislators always want to punish our poor and give help to those who don’t need it, and why don’t our Democrat legislators rail against such injustice?
