What is Fair?

To: Steve Moore

Watched you on Stossel and I agree with you 100%.  Personally, my wife and I have saved all our lives in order to send our twin boys to college.  Because of being “virtuous” and responsible parents (knowing that sending two kids to college at the same time), we hurt ourselves to the point we don’t get financial aid in the form of grants.  On paper, we can afford college. What they don’t take into consideration is that we have never taken vacation and we drive cars that are over 15 years old.  We sacrificed and we are punished.  If we lived hand to mouth, we probably would have gotten real financial aid.  And on top of this, I have been unemployed for over 4 years and not eligible to collect unemployment.  But by doing the right thing, we lose.  Only in America!!!
