Economics for College Students
Under Barak Obama:
You make an A. Another student makes a C-. We will give part of your grade to him/her and you will both have B's. That is fair.
Under John McCain:
You make an A. Another student makes a C-. You keep your A, and we'll try to help the other student raise his grade.
My caveat is: It's not even the government's job to be helping the other student. That takes money, and the money will no doubt come from the pocket of the student who's graduating with A's, but that's another topic.
