Pell grants aren't loans, they are grants and are not paid back Stafford loans are FederallyRead Morefunded- and are either Subsidized-no interest while in school, Unsubsidized-interest while in school no payments are made to either until graduation or non-enrollment. There is nothing in your link regarding Chris Smith the article is on Paul Ryan's proposed budget-

It appears this article is either intentionally mis-leading to hurt a GREAT Congressman, Mr. SmithRead Moreo r there was a big mis-understanding on the part of the author. I searched the internet and found NOTHING about Rep. Smith supporting this. It appears to be untrue.

There is a lot to be learned from our elders, seniors....respect for one another, accountability,Read Morego od work ethics. I could go on and on. Time is not taken to listen and learn from them. They are a very valuable piece to our community. Perhaps we get so caught up in our own day to day activities (which are also important) that we are slack in some ways and forget this. My time is spread very thin, but I am open to suggestions as to how we can continue to improve on this together as a community. Maybe spring clean up, help organize, have a baking day and share recipes along with conversation. Possibly have someone from the senior community give a speech on a topic and invite people to listen. Who knows, someone may need them in to help in their lives! We may ask them to assist us in something, there are children out there without a grandmother or grandfather.

LISA I FEEL THE SAME WAY YOU DO BUT AS YOU SAY, TIME IS A PROBLEM. HOWEVER, MAYBE SOMEONE OUT THERE Read MoreHAS A GOOD IDEA--I'M OPEN TO IT. ALSO, I HAVE NO GRANDKIDS AND WOULD LOVE TO HELP A KID WHO HAS NONE, OR, NONE THEY CAN SEE OFTEN. I KNOW KIDS ARE OUR FUTURE BUT WE CAN'T FORGET THE PAST; ISN'T THERE AN OLD SAYING THAT TO "FORGET THE PAST, IS TO REPEAT IT"? OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT? MY NIECES AND NEPHEWS CAN'T BELIEVE I HAD NO PHONE, TV, COMPUTER, ETC. WHEN GROWING UP. THEY SHOULD ONLY KNOW WHAT THE SENIORS HAD TO FACE. PERHAPS, ONE DAY...

MY BODY IS JUST THAT--MINE! I WILL DEAL WITH GOD IN MY OWN WAY WHEN MY TIME COMES. FREEDOM OFRead MoreCHOICE IS "A FREEDOM"--THAT IS WHAT MAKES THIS COUNTRY WHAT IT IS--FREE. YOU MAY RESPECT YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, YOUR POLITICIANS, AND EVERYONE WHO HAS A RIGHT TO THEIR OPINION--I DO. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO MY CHOICE FOR WHAT I DO WITH MY BODY, KEEP YOUR CHOICE TO YOURSELF!

Roe is in danger and that is fact. The states have been chipping away at Roe and in many statesRead Morewom en no longer have access to a safe abortion. Women must travel hours or days to find a facility to help them, they must undergo intrusive ultra sounds, films and lectures and after all that are asked to wait 24 to 72 hours. It is cost prohibitive and cruel for women and wrong. Back alley abortions are back. This is about choice and women and women exercising the right to choose what they need to do with their bodies. It is not the governments decision, a stranger with a religious point of view or anyone else. It is up to the women to decide her destiny and she can deal with god as she chooses. America is a democracy not a theocracy. Women are victimized, raped, abused and have circumstances that nobody but themselves can understand. It is about choice not abortion.

You are mixing up States Rights vs Fed regulations on Insurance to make your Talking Points aboutRead Moreab ortion and trump up what is at stake.. It has never been a national dictate that abortion be required to be performed in every state. Roe vs Wade made it legal, but they cannot control what a state chooses to allow by voter CHOICE in their state. Chris Smith has been elected because people like what he stands for-otherwise he would not be in office, he has never hidden that he is PRO-LIFE. Again you are trying to create an atmosphere of fear by your inflammatory headline. By the way being Pro-Life is not necessarily a religious viewpoint.
