ABC7
— NEW YORK MAKES COLLEGE TUITION FREE – WITH BIG STRING ATTACHED – AP  (DIERSEN: When I lived with my parents and brother in Crete and attended Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966, UIC 1966-1968, and NIU 1969-1970, in today’s dollars, my father earned about $40,000/year, and my mother was a homemaker/housewife.)
http://abc7chicago.com/education/new-york-makes-college-tuition-free—with-big-string-attached/1856637/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There’s a big string attached to New York’s free middle-class college tuition initiative: Students must stay in the state after graduation or else pay back the benefit. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that the requirement was added to protect the state’s investment in a student’s education by ensuring they don’t take advantage of free tuition and then leave New York. The tuition initiative, which Cuomo said is a national model, covers state college or university tuition for in-state students from families earning $125,000 or less. Students must remain in New York for as many years as they received the benefit. They must repay the money as a loan if they take a job in another state.)

— Pawar compares Rauner to… British colonialists?  (DIERSEN: If you are a Republican, the longer that your ancestors have been in America, the more that Democrats hint/imply/argue/shout that you benefited from your ancestors’ discrimination against minorities and against women and the more that you should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
https://capitolfax.com/2017/04/10/pawar-compares-rauner-to-british-colonialists/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: My father was born in India under British rule. The British were few, but they were wealthy. The Indians were many but they were kept poor. They were pit against one another based on what religion they practiced, where they lived, and what language they spoke. The British kept Indians jobless, uneducated, and without medical services. This was the world my dad grew up in, and it’s the world being created by the broken policies of Donald Trump and Bruce Rauner. It’s been 21 months and counting without a budget because Rauner wants there to be no budget. In his race to destroy the social safety net, he wants the chaos that comes from slashing school funding, closing health clinics, and encouraging companies to leave the state. I am running for governor because I’m tired of Bruce Rauner and his billionaire friends being the happiest they’ve ever been as millions of families suffer from lack of jobs, health care, and educational opportunities. I am running because I want to ensure my daughter doesn’t grow up in the kind of world that oppressed my dad.)
