It revolves around a $3,000 student loan program, where the loan converts to a scholarship if I maintain a grade point average of 3.3 or higher.
Call it what you want. We, as a country, have made a mess! We have created so many “entitlements” we are crippling and causing harm to our society and to those we seek to assist.
