New York Governor Proposes Free State College Tuition For Eligible Students

One of the central issues on the Democratic platform is making free college education a reality. The national student loan debt is already massive and doesn’t look to disappear anytime soon, and a large part of that is because college tuition prices are only going up.

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, who some see as a potential presidential nominee, recently made a proposal that could make free college a possibility in the future for hundreds of thousands of New York residents.

Wali Camara, a deli worker at A&M Deli Grocery in the Bronx, was shot and killed with a NYPD officer’s pistol on Aug. 9. But the person pulling the trigger wasn’t an officer. It was a panhandler that took the officer’s gun out of his holster and fired 15 rounds.

No one would’ve expected that Jarrett would soon be the victim of a violent assault.

To say that the language coming out of the Donald Trump campaign this election season has been obscene, racist, and sexist is an understatement. It has reached every depth of disgusting that political language could possibly reach (*cough* “p-ssy grab” *cough*). Even Trump’s surrogates have taken up the language of their leader.

Carl Paladino, President-elect Trump’s New York co-chair and ex-Republican candidate for NY Governor, recently suggested Michelle Obama was actually a man who should live in Africa with gorillas and that he would like President Obama to die of mad cow disease after Valerie Jarrett dies of decapitation.

I’m not making this up.
