Just a quick update from Washington on this Tuesday morning. In keeping with traditional government incompetence, we’re rapidly approaching the end of the year – and the end of this term of Congress – with major hurdles that still need to be cleared.

Update on Biden's Student Loan "Forgiveness" Program

| Posted in Blog

As promised, here’s a brief update on President Biden’s effort to transfer other people’s student loan debts to you, the taxpayers.

This is a longer post, I’m sorry, but I’m concerned about this issue and people need to know what’s going on here. 🔶 First, a little background information: Parents are almost certainly familiar with vaccine schedules for their children.
