Michelle Obama urges high school students to apply for federal aid: ‘Don’t leave money on the table’

As part of its endeavor to provide cradle to grave federally funded education, the Obama administration had First Lady Michelle Obama and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan get the word out that almost all students are eligible for federal aid for college.

The First Lady and Duncan appeared at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday to kick off the new federal college aid campaign. Mrs. Obama told students that applying for federal student aid is easier than they think and well worth the effort because almost every student is eligible for some kind of aid.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics.

John Adams

Especially since it's not HER money on the table. And the first Wookie ought to know. She's been raking our money off the table for five years of weekly vacations. Only thing she and Il Douche haven't done is change the National Anthem to "Movin' On Up"!  :whistle:
