I don't like to talk politics here much, or anywhere for that matter. It's just too frustrating to me. But I will step on my little soap box for today.
As those who live here in Boise and Meridian know (at least I hope you know), there is a levy for each city up for vote next week to create extra funds for education. This is to help cover some of the budget cuts made recently. I have already sent in my absentee ballot. Please go vote next week (preferable yes, but it's up to you).
Related to that, I just read an article about costs for higher education here, and the Republican candidates' views on that. Anna is just three years away from college. I have a niece who started this year. Although we have been saving for Anna for a long time, and I started a small account for my niece some years ago, I am still very anxious about the high and continuing rising costs of college.
My niece will not escape incurring some debt. I hope Anna won't incur any, but I don't know. From the article, it doesn't look like the situation will be helped by the Republicans anytime soon. Instead of trying to help America, it's politics as usual.
