Tyler, Texas (KETK) — I like it when President Obama goes on vacation because he's playing golf with the beautiful people and not trying to get into my business.
Now, he has a new idea.
He wants to get the Feds into the nation's college system more than they already are.
CNS News reports, when the president was in New York, Thursday, campaigning or whatever he was doing, he dropped this little sugar plum:
"Speaking at the University of Buffalo, the president unveiled an ambitious new plan for the federal government to create a national rating system That system will define what a good college is."
You get that? The president wants to define what a good college is.
This rating system would financially reward or punish colleges depending on how they rank in the government's system.
Well. who runs the government? Bureaucrats and many of whom lean left.
He said he intends to have the rating system in placed by the fall of 2015 and intends to work with Congress to enact legislation linking federal aid to colleges to the rating system. As outlined by Obama, this rating system would look at essentially materialistic and financial characteristics of a college as opposed to intellectual and moral ones.
It's all about government control.
Just like healthcare.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
