ONLY CONGRESS CAN MAKE FEDERAL LAW.

ONLY CONGRESS CAN MAKE FEDERAL LAW.

Editor’s Note:  Partly RIGHT but attacking the SYMPTOMS will NOT cure the disease.  The regulations are not JUST outdated, they are UNCONSTITUTIONAL.  The regulations DEFY THE CONSTITUTION.  While American’s have been asleep at the wheel congress has been  delegating their responsibilities to unelected bureaucrats.  The language of the Constitution gives no authority to delegate legislative activities.  The Constitution does not give authority for Congress to SPEND money on MOST of the things it does.  The CURE is a Constitutional Republic, if we can restore it.

The problem is that millennials “often feel held back by archaic process and overregulation,” Stefanik said, suggesting reforms to help millennials such as changing labor laws to allow for greater work flexibility and making Pell Grant scholarships available year-round.

This is an opportunity for us. Let them do equity crowdfunding, let them know that the great socialist experiment is collapsing… on their backs.

Getting government out of education completely is the best move, but it will have to happen in steps.
