, and any argument in favor of these sorts of policies as a sort of "gift" will fall on deaf ears (except for those who expect to get a handout). Such as free college education, gotta include subject & GPA caveats to make it sound economically and then suddenly we can actually give people opportunity and be happy to pay for it. Policies based on "the goodness of people" are never going to stick.
