The latest debacle-in-waiting hidden in Congress' $1.1 trillion CRomnibus bill is a massive cut to the much-beloved Pell Grant program. The Washington Post reports:
Since 1965, Pell Grants have helped thousands upon thousands (millions?) of students attend college who would have otherwise been locked out by the preposterously inflating cost of higher education. According to the Washington Post, the program is currently running a surplus, though due to these cuts could face a funding shortfall within a year.
More fuel for the fire.
Congress will cut $303 million in funding for a federal program that allows many of the nation's poorest students attend college, part of a massive spending package to keep the federal government open through the end of the year.
