One Third of Entire Budget Cuts come from Students

"Nearly one-third of all the savings in the final budget bill comes from student aid, the Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday."

I bet you students didn't realize you were the single most financially healthy sector of society, most able to bear the sacrifice for everybody. Not CEOs. Not the banking industry. Not millionaire retirees. Twenty year olds who live off student loans and low-wage jobs while trying to finish a bachelor's degree at a public university.
