Our country is going through a really bad time economically. Everytime you turn on the tv, you hear about one large company or another having to lay off THOUSANDS of people. We're starting winter, and so far, it's been pretty brutal for much of the country. So how can this make sense? How can it make sense to cut utility aid, which people need in order to stay WARM this winter? I don't understand where politicians expect for us to get money from, when many of us have lost our jobs and cannot find another one because of all the layoffs. My school is going to raise tuition again - something like 20% over last year!!! - and yet, the school President just gave himself a $93k/year RAISE, making him the HIGHEST PAID University President, I believe in the entire COUNTRY. Is it just me, or are the 'little people' of this country getting majorly screwed?
