    Saying that the United States was in a fight for the future with countries like India and China, President Barack Obama has taken strong exception to opposition Republican move to slash the education budget.

    He strongly disagreed "with the economic plan that was released last week by the Republican leaders in Congress, which would actually cut education by 20 per cent," he said Tuesday addressing the White House Summit on Community Colleges, attended by educators, business leaders and officials.

    It would reduce or eliminate financial aid for 8 million college students, said Obama. "Think about it. China isn't slashing education by 20 per cent right now. India is not slashing education by 20 per cent."

      You can not be chief if you have no Indians!  so sure raise an alarm or two. lolol

      No, in another more serious way he is correct in that we are loosing engineers, inventors-scientists and chance takers that we need to keep new ideas flowing, so it is probably a real concern he has personaly. not a sarcastic joke like above!
