If parents don't teach the meaning of hard work, responsibility and value of a dollar, look in the mirror if you want someone to blame.

Thank God somebody is trying and not expectiong it to be given to them or we will soon be a country of losers. I think they need to tax those rich folks folks and pay for these poor Mexican kids to go to college.
Once upon a time this country had a hand full of haves and the rest have nots that worked hard to make the few richer. Keep there options minimal and these few can keep exploiting the opportunity. Public education, credit opportunities and anti-trust laws moved us out of the Robber Barron era. I don't think I would have like that era unless I was one of them. Every post except Golddogs wants us back there. Obviously you really have not thought this through. Makes for good political rhetoric...but that's it.
FWIW, I would agree with Golddogs ... parents tend to want to make life better/easier for their children, but that is not always what will be the best for the kids over the longer haul.

Reading blogs of the recent Labor ruling in Indiana and also from the bankrupt Detroit, there is a hostility for the people that put bread on their table. An attitude that will kill any real wealth left in the country!
Life is not fair and the government can't make it so. If you want to make something of your life, work for it and earn it. Don't ask me to subsidize anyone's poor choices or pay for their damn Health Care. Heatlh Care in this country was just fine before the the days of PPOs and HMO's. Two systems that were bought and paid for by Lobbyist.

Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
The supply siders have ruled the day for most of this period. Effective federal tax rates are at a near all time low, yet the distribution of income and of wealth is similar to that of the roaring 20's right before the big crash, and the gap between rich and poor continues to grow. We have been told by the supply siders that the wealth will trickle down. We are told that a rising tide will lift all ships. I simply asked those of you that believe in this economic theory when all these other ships will be lifted? The job creators are doing great by every measure. Where are the jobs. Your theory says there there should be jobs. We had two large tax cuts under the previous administration, where are the jobs?
Seems like we need to consider what needs to be done to increase the demand side of the equation. Instead, we seem to be pursuing a race to the bottom.
You tell me,what policies are needed to increase demand? Maybe we just need to stay the course and it will work out?
