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

Published

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:

Trending: Biden’s Plan Would Tax AR-15 Owners $200, Ban New Sales of All AR-15’s and Other Guns

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!

Biden: I Will Provide A ‘Pathway to Citizenship for Over 11 Million Undocumented’ Immigrants

He would try to do it right away!

“Elections have consequences,” as Barack Obama once noted. The problem with electing a Democrat to the White House, is that you know 11 out of every 10 policies will have negative repercussions on the American people – whether they’re smart enough to understand what’s going on or not. Joe Biden plans to get off on the wrong foot, almost immediately. Here’s the scoop, via The Daily Wire: Joe Biden announced during an NBC News interview that aired on Tuesday evening that he will immediately move to give citizenship to millions of illegal aliens once he gets into office in two months. “I’m going to make a commitment in the first 100 days, I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America,” Biden said. “I will also be moving to do away with some of the I think very damaging executive orders that have significantly impacted on making the climate worse and making us less healthy.” The odds of social media censoring this post are high. Anything negative toward Biden/Harris is almost instantly a red-flag. You can’t even read a Trump tweet these days without seeing a disclaimer. But facts matter. From Washington Times: A whistleblower claims to have seen a Biden-Harris van bringing ballots to a counting center in Nevada, according to the Trump campaign. The whistleblower said he went for a walk on his lunch break around the counting center and spotted a Biden-Harris van unloading boxes of ballots, said conservative activist Matt Schlapp at a press conference organized by the Trump campaign in Las Vegas.

Report Shows MSM’s Censorship of Negative Biden News Might’ve Cost Trump Election

Nearly 20% wouldn’t have voted for Joe if they knew the truth!

There was literally no reason for Hollywood, the mainstream media, and Congressional Democrats to have such vitriol for Donald Trump. His policies worked. Unemployment was at its lowest levels across the board, pre-pandemic. No new wars were started. Historic peace deals were made. The stock market soared. What more could a person ask for from a leader? Unfortunately, far too many people were working behind the scenes to ensure POTUS only served one-term. Sad, really. The guy was never given a chance, yet still accomplished so, so much. From The Daily Caller: The media’s censorship of negative President-elect Joe Biden news and positive President Donald Trump stories may have cost Trump the election, according to a poll published by The Media Research Center (MRC). Among those surveyed, one in six Biden voters said they would not have voted for the president-elect if they had been aware of one or more of the news stories presented to them, the poll found. MRC’s poll, conducted by The Polling Company, asked voters about eight news stories that “the liberal news media had failed to cover properly,” a press release from the MRC noted. CONTINUED: “A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six of the swing states won by Joe Biden,” the MRC determined. The poll found that a massive 82% of voters were unaware of at least one news item presented and 5% were unaware of all issues. The poll surveyed 1,750 Biden voters across seven swing states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. LOOK: If Trump is a one-term president, it will be a sad day for America. Then again, in just four short years, The Donald could potentially become the second man in American history to serve non-consecutive terms. Food for thought.
