Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just went where no sane politician would ever dare to venture.
Omar is now suggesting the G.I. Bill apply to all American citizens.
“Imagine what it would do for our country and those who live here if we were to take the ethos behind the original G.I. Bill and apply it to everybody—canceling all student debt and making public colleges, universities, and vocational schools tuition-free.” 💪🏽 https://t.co/P6LNRv6h9w

It’s NOT FREE College
Dems are trying to get elected to office by offering a bunch of freebies to voters.
Omar, in her never-ending effort to turn this country into a socialist haven, is now saying our G.I. Bill should apply to everyone.
The fact of the matter, though, is that even though we are picking up the tab for veterans education, these men and women have paid a price to earn that benefit.
They have served our country, many of them putting their lives in jeopardy for the right to have a free education.
Chris Manning, a veteran who ran for a congressional seat in New Mexico responded to the idea, stating, “I’m a recipient of the GI Bill.
“The GI Bill was earned by agreeing to serve my country for six years and to put my life at risk as an infantryman in Afghanistan.
“It wasn’t something just given to me with nothing expected in return.
“Don’t cheapen our sacrifice w/ this comparison.”
It’s Just Not Feasible
The only way this is even possible, along with free medical care and every other freebie Dems want to offer, is by taxing the hell out of hardworking Americans.
It all sounds great, but it would put our country into an economic freefall that would have people in bread and cheese lines before you know it.
This entire idea is built upon the idea of removing more responsibility from this new generation that thinks they are entitled to everything.
Most of you reading this paid your way through school and may even be paying your child’s way right now.
What about all the money we paid out? Will we get that back?
On the flip side, this is a HUGE benefit to offer people for serving… so what is the new incentive? How can we take something that is both an incentive and reward for our veterans and cheapen it by making it a freebie for everyone?
Virtually every program Democrats propose these days remove the incentive to become successful, to do something for your country, and to be a hardworking American.
They have to be stopped and come election day, we are going to do just that.
