Biden’s boondoggle a brazen ballot box buy

OPINION — When I graduated from high school, my parents owned a humble mom and pop retail shoe store in Salina, Kan. Consequently, I attended a state supported college, at my own expense. I would have to take out student loans, apply for grants and work several jobs to make it happen. (Academically, I was not scholarship material.)

So, I borrowed money through the National Direct Student Loan program. I received several income-related grants. I worked at a dorm kitchen. After classes, I delivered furniture. On Saturdays I sold furniture. Later in my journalism education, I took a paid internship at a farm publication. And, I had several paid positions at Kansas State University’s daily newspaper, The Collegian. I worked more and borrowed less.
