Pell Grants and War

Email Print

I heard it reported on NPR (online here) that Tea Party Republicans want Pell Grants, which cost taxpayers about $35 billion a year, to be cut back. Not eliminated, just cut back. Fine. Good idea. But why no Tea Party Republican calls for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to be cut back? They cost us over $10 billion a month. And they kill our young people instead of educate them.
