Dems Act Like More Education ‘Solves Everything’ — College Is ‘a Scam’ Where People Don’t Get Educated
On HBO’s “Real Time,” which aired Friday, host Bill Maher said President Joe Biden’s student loan program will exacerbate income inequality and the problem is that higher education is being “sold as the golden ticket to the upper middle class, But they’re not really getting any education.” He also argued that “education is to Democrats what tax cuts are to Republicans, who think it’s going to fix everything.”
“I know this should address income inequality, but it kind of does the opposite,” Maher said.
He added: “I keep saying it’s not about affordability. Yes, college is unaffordable, [but] It’s about making college more unnecessary. This is a huge scam. It’s a consumer product that they sell you as a golden ticket to the upper middle class, but they don’t really have any education. “
Maher further said, “I’m just saying, most jobs, they don’t really need it — it’s a scam. And I — you talked about nurses, I’ve talked to a lot of nurses…administrators, teachers , they all have this complaint that at some point they need more education to advance their careers when in reality, they know exactly what they’re doing. They don’t, it just gets you back to school One way. I think education is to Democrats what tax cuts are to Republicans, who think it will fix everything.”
