Okay, it's a cheap shot, I know... but you have to wonder what they have in mind next.

Can we add a pacifier to the list?

I'd really like to get more than $13/week. But, if forced to choose something (because they had to do SOMETHING!!!!!!!!), ideally, they would pay off every student loan balance in the country.

Think what that extra $100-$500 (or more) a month could do for people's bottom lines. They could move forward with paying down debt, saving a 6 month emergency fund, saving a 30% downpayment for a house, etc.

But that would make too much sense. We have to build frisbee golf courses instead.

Education is too cheap (relative to what you get for it over the length of a career and assuming you finish). All it takes is one semester of teaching to let you know how little students appreciate the opportunities they have been given.

This doesn't even take into consideration the results we are getting from what we do offer.
