Wait, wut?
I caught only a minute of Morning Joe this am.

Here is what I heard.

The lack of skilled workers is ruining the U.S. economy.

Therefore, we need to bring people in from other countries, educate them here (both of which we already do) AND make sure they stay here after we educate them.


How about instead, we just do the same for kids already in the U.S.?

Please do not tell me that we do not have enough brain power in a nation of about 350 million people.

And, while I hope Elizabeth Warren is my Senator soon, is there any reason college professors need to make half a million a year? No wonder kids can't go to college anymore, or graduate so deep in debt it isn't funny.
