This is an interesting move for a number of reasons, but this is in no way related to the conversation of free college for all.

1. This is a private school (no taxpayer money).
2. This will increase the applicant pool and it will attract a better group of students than previously.
3. We're talking doctors here. The chances are significantly higher that they will "give back" to the school after graduation as compared to a <<Fill in the Blank>> major undergrad. Especially if it is for free.

Smells a helluva lot like a free market solution though

klam, can we get a ruling?

Is this the free market figuring out higher ed (on the microeconomic level) or am I missing something

78% of my property taxes go to schools. And that only covers through 12th grade. The tax cost for the next 4 years will likely be at least 50% of the tax cost of the first 12 years (so $4k per year will jump to $6k per year - forever). People with 4 and 5 kids are benefiting. People with no kids are getting killed. How much more suffering do you want people with no kids to have to endure? Is that really fair?

Membership to the Green New Deal select committee would include a promise to not accept donations from any fossil fuel company.

Critics have blamed the industry and its lobbyists for binding the hands of Republicans in Congress who are either skeptical of the human role in climate change, or else argue moving toward renewable energy is not economically feasible.

Both Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez decried those as false talking points.

“First of all it’s just plain wrong, that idea that we are going to somehow lose economic activity,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

“It’s inevitable that we will create jobs. We can use the transition to 100 percent renewable energy as the vehicle to truly deliver and establish economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America.”

:shock: :suspicious: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :dunce: :dunce: :dunce: :dunce: :ohno: :ohno:

Considering climate change disproportionately affects the poor and people of color, she's completely correct. The climate gap isn't some made up thing - it's a well researched and written-about item. I forget we don't care about science here though.

I love this woman; she's the future and doesn't back down from conservative bullshit.

2016: The GOP proves they're not the party of facts by electing an ignoramous like Trump just because he "tells it like it is".

2018: The GOP is just afraid of Ocasio-Cortez because she speaks the truth and they don't like strawng wimmin of colour™. Ocasio Cortez for president!

It doesn't surprise me you love her. She sounds just like you. Blathering on and on about **** with zero comprehension of how ridiculous she sounds.

Even though she spouts falsities?


If she is the future, we’re ****. Her comments and actions have already proven that she doesn’t understand civics, Econ, history or how our Congress works.

What’s the difference between “people of color” and “colored people”? Why’s one bad but not the other??

I think she's kind of ignorant. I mean, everybody's ignorant but she seems particularly so. I think she's kind of a babe in the woods.

But I don't think she's like Trump. I think Trump is a psychopath. I'm not kidding either. I look at stuff like the discussion at https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog ... ychopath-0 and think, "THAT'S Trump."

I think this liberal babe is an idealist. Trump is NOT an idealist.
