Rep. Ilhan Omar Calls For GI Bill To Be Given To All Americans, Even If They Didn’t Serve

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar is once again allowing her socialism to show through by joining the call for the GI Bill to apply to all Americans, whether they have served in the military or not. This is essentially another call for the government to pick up the tab for folks to go to college, once again proving the left does not understand how basic economics works.

Then, of course, there’s the fact that such a call diminishes the sacrifice and honor given to our armed forces, but that probably doesn’t bother Omar too much.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The story, written by Marine and Iraq veteran Will Fischer, who used the G.I. Bill’s benefits to pay for his college education, argues that the benefits of paying for veterans’ education have far outweighed the costs — and covering all Americans’ tuition would benefit not only those avoiding student debt but the economy as a whole.

But Omar was quickly criticized for advocating such a massive expansion.

“I’m a recipient of the GI Bill,” responded Chris Manning, a veteran who ran for Congress in New Mexico as a Libertarian in 2018. “The GI Bill was earned by agreeing to serve my country for six years and to put my life at risk as an infantryman in Afghanistan. It wasn’t something just given to me with nothing expected in return. Don’t cheapen our sacrifice w/ this comparison.”

Cam Edwards, a gun-rights activist, also made the point that veterans earn their G.I Bill benefits, in contrast with those who choose not to go into the military.

Omar doesn’t seem to understand that when you offer free college to folks, you’re not only creating a bubble that has to burst economically, you’re also flooding the job market with “qualified” individuals. There aren’t enough jobs to go around for everyone with a college degree.

Part of what kept that marketplace so well balanced was that people had to pay to receive their education. This meant that people had to work hard in order to achieve their goals. Those who weren’t motivated didn’t go to college and thus, there was less competition for work.

So much is wrong with this idea. Let’s hope it doesn’t get any further down the pipeline.

Save conservative media!

Obama Now Demanding TV Stations Stop Running Anti-Biden, Pro-Trump Ad In South Carolina

Is he in a position to do this?

Is Barack Obama in a position to make demands? This is a guy who won’t even endorse or campaign for the man who served as his vice president for nearly a full decade, and don’t you forget that. From The Hill: Former President Obama’s attorneys say they plan to file a cease-and-desist letter over a pro-Trump group’s television ad in South Carolina that attacks former Vice President Joe Biden by using a portion of Obama’s book out of context. Obama is also demanding that all South Carolina television stations immediately stop running the ad from the Committee to Defend the President, which is aimed at supporting President Trump’s reelection bid. CONTINUED: “This despicable ad is straight out of the Republican disinformation playbook, and it’s clearly designed to suppress turnout among minority voters in South Carolina by taking President Obama’s voice out of context and twisting his words to mislead viewers,” Obama spokeswoman Katie Hill said in a statement. Biden is quite the card, even after all these years. Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes. WATCH: https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Michelle Obama is known for not being proud of her country. She made that clear a few years back, when she said she was finally proud of America once Barack was elected president. Wonders that did for the nation, huh, Michelle? Was America better off after eight years of your husband’s scandals and malfeasance? Yeah, good luck defending that simple question. In 2019, the wife of the former community organizer was in Malaysia. Why? Who cares? But while there, she managed to bash the U.S. of A. Such a proud American, this one… From Breitbart:…

Mayor Calls Bernie Supporters ‘Radicals’ & ‘Socialists’ And the Crowd Erupts In Cheers [Video]

They are all so proud…

Not exactly proud to be American. Certainly not fans of capitalism. But these Bernie Sanders supporters in South Carolina are friggin’ elated to be referred to as “radicals” and “socialists.” And no, in case you were thinking it, this isn’t like conservatives owning the word “deplorables” after Hillary Clinton spouted off at the mouth. This is different. It’s not a joke. This is how they really feel. You’ll just have to see for yourself.

They’re all on the “same page.” The figurative cat is absolutely out of the bag. There are no more true “Democrats,” as it were.
