Obama Cuts Pell Grants
Obama has cut Pell grants.
Betcha didn't know that being as how he was making an issue of how he wouldn't do such a thing during the campaign and how college kids had to vote for him to stop the evil Republicans and save their education.
And of course this was reported at face value by the propagandist who many still believe are the watchdogs of government.
Well, the Dallas County (Texas) Community College District has just sent an email to students declaring: On December 23, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74). This new federal law states that the amount of Federal Pell Grant funds a student may receive over his or her LIFETIME will be reduced to the duration of a student's eligibility from 18 semesters (or its equivalent) to 12 semesters (or its equivalent). This new law applies to ALL Federal Pell Grant eligible students effective with the 2012-2013 award year beginning July 1, 2012. (DCL-GEN-12-01)
It is now being circulated throughout the nation via the new independent media outlets.
Did Obama really sign such a law? Is this just a Texas thing?
Here's a link to a PDF of a press release from the Association of Community College Trustees saying the same thing as well as itemizing other Obama cuts.
Obama voters, you were lied to, not that our telling you will convince you otherwise.
