The cost of a college education in the United States has skyrocketed over the past 15-20 years, and more and more of our young adults are starting their lives drowning in student loan debt. Instead of helping American citizens, President Obama has decided to send $20M of our tax dollars to Indonesia to help their citizens get Masters degrees.
Worst of all, these Indonesian students will be attending United States’ universities, so they will be graduating with the same credentials as our citizens. They’ll have an advantage because they’ll be willing to work for less salary than their American counterparts, because they don’t have thousands of dollars in student loans to pay back.
In other words, our tax dollars are now working against us, and for Muslim people in Indonesia.
Is this what you would spend our tax dollars on?
