Good ol’ FAFSA. Everyone’s favorite government racket. When they’re not throwing out $80,000 loans with 7% compounding interest to literally anyone who can write their own name, they’re tweeting out nonsense like this:
“LOL fuck you, poors. It’s like you can’t afford this ridiculously overpriced thing that is losing value every year.” That’s the gist of what just happened there. The tweet was deleted, but nonetheless, the message was sent. Also, why the fuck does FAFSA need a Twitter account? SMH. SMDH.
FAFSA issued an “apology” shortly after:
We apologize for the insensitivity of our previous tweet. Our goal is to make college a reality for all. We’re very sorry.

Notice how they want to make college a reality for all. I think a more accurate tweet would be “We apologize. That intern has been fired. We want every student in America to be up to their eyeballs in debt until they’re 40.” Was that 140 characters?
It’s pretty cocky from an organization that’s responsible for the latest economic bubble in the US. Let Mark Cuban explain:
So, remember kids, if you’re one of the two million kids a year who need financial aid to attend college, you’re fucking poor. At least according to the single largest college lender in the country.
