Why is college so expensive? Well, subsidize anything like we have a college education in this country and the price of that thing will rise. It’s not complicated and nothing’s “free.”
This is an excellent piece and pings directly on what we have seen firsthand. Millennials are being regulated, by many means, right out of home ownership. The author makes the point that despite the spin, Millennials actually want their own homes. They want families. They don’t necessarily want to spend their lives in tightly packed cities.

The citizens just didn’t understand you see…When the president said you could keep your plan and your doctor what he actually meant is that most of the plans would be canceled and you wouldn’t be able to keep your doctor… See it’s kind of funny if you think about it.
The further we go along the uglier a mess Obamacare seems to be.
