Students Learn Obama cuts access to Pell Grants by 33%

LINK

quote:

President Obama has cut your access to Pell Grants by 33%; he just forgot to mention it before Election Day.


quote:

The email states that the cut in eligibility was part of an education bill President Obama signed into law in 2011. "On December 23, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74). This new federal law states that the amount of Federal Pell Grant funds a student may receive over his or her LIFETIME will be reduced to the duration of a student's eligibility from 18 semesters (or its equivalent) to 12 semesters (or its equivalent). This new law applies to ALL Federal Pell Grant eligible students effective with the 2012-2013 award year beginning July 1, 2012. (DCL-GEN-12-01)"


Sorry you college lemming Obama voters

Wait, I was assured by this board that Obama doesn't cut spending ever and that the only reason anyone voted for him is because he gives them free stuff.

Glad to see he is making the cuts. Really it's a program that should be discontinued. It is ripe with abuse.

That specific cut was a GOP proposal during the debt ceiling fiasco.

The GOP'ers here aren't decrying it.

They are laughing at the college kids who thought Obama was going to bail them out of debt.

Less Pell=More loans=More debt

You might think that a student who had been informed of this fact might of thought twice about voting for Obama but I'm pretty sure there is no amount of logic on the planet that change the mind of the lemmings.
