*French friend: ...well, the total cost of me going to med school is 406 a year -
*American friend: THOUSAND???!
*French friend: Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?
*American friend: What the fuck?! What the actual fuck??!!
**Wow. It's almost as though Americans are slowly learning that America isn't the best country in the world...
Student debt will be an epidemic and the current administration only wants to make it worse. Betsy DeVos....wow, just wow.
While some are realizing the deficiencies here, I don't think there's a wide awakening that the US isn't the best. I read through twitter and other social media and see some horrible arguments regarding healthcare and other basic tenets of the US. The old argument 'everyone comes to the US for healthcare' comes up every time regardless of actual facts presented involving healthcare in France, Australia, UK and any and every other developed country with some sort of socialized medical care.
Just think if the billions that the Donald wants for a fucking wall were spent on education. Or maybe put together some true healthcare reform that regulates profits in the insurance industry. I'm all for capitalism and competition in industry, but healthcare should not be a for profit business.
Meanwhile another mass shooting just happened.
America, FUCK YEAH!
