The United States is a low-wage country. (Here a chorus of Republicans pipes up: Yes, but it’s the greatest low-wage country in the world, and don’t you forget it!) In fact, in 2009 the United States led developed nations, with 24.8 percent of workers earning less than two-thirds of the…

GOP presidential challenger Rick Santorum faced three tough questions from high school students Friday afternoon on his education, health care and economic policies.
The questions he faced afterward from reporters at an Italian restaurant in suburban Chicago about the year he lived in Illinois seemed almost gentle by comparison.
Seventeen minutes into his speech, the faculty advisor interrupted him.
“Excuse me — I know we’re on a tight schedule here. We have some students who would like to ask some questions if you’re ready to entertain those,” the faculty member said. Santorum nodded.
The 3 questions students got to ask:
“You recently commented on how you don’t believe everyone should go to college,” Becky Pauwels, 17, told Santorum. “Yet countries such as Germany and Japan, whose governments offer college to any motivated student, experience high rates of socio-economic mobility, which, by your own admission and all academic studies, is lagging in the United States.”
Since President Barack Obama proposes expanded access to college and training programs, how do his proposals differ from Obama’s, she asked.
“Your main competitor, Mitt Romney, donated 16.3 percent of his income to charity and you donated only 1.7 percent of your $923,000 salary to charity,” Vucicevic said. “Your explanation was that you have to provide for seven children, one of which has special needs. … How do you expect middle-class Americans who are in similar situations to pay for it? Isn’t your situation the exact reason why we need a universal health care system like most other nations have?”
The auditorium erupted in applause at the question.
Hannah Johnstone asked if Santorum’s economic policies weren’t “just giving the upper 1 percent more of the advantages they had under George Bush’s lower tax rates and deregulatory policies which is very similar to what you are proposing?”
THIS WAS ME! I WROTE THOSE QUESTIONS!!!
Proud to be among such an intelligent group of students.
I was there to ask a question, but got shooed away by Santorum’s staff when they decided that Hersey kids were TOO SMART for Senator Dumbass!
Although it’s clear that Rush has discovered my secret Crazed Female Sex Demons For Progressivism and World Domination weekly meetings, I will always be proud to be with the party that operates, to quote FDR, through the following premise: “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”
