Lower class and want to go to college in New York State?

Here's the solution: Become a felon.

A statewide initiative will start to expand opportunities for prisoners to get college degrees, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday.

Cuomo said New York's recidivism rate for incarceration is 40 percent, and the state spends $60,000 a year to house each prisoner. He said the program would help keep prisoners from returning to jail and will start by partnering local colleges with 10 prisons, which are mainly upstate.

Cuomo said the program will cost about $5,000 per year to provide a year of college courses for one inmate. The program will be funded through a partnership among the colleges, state and private sector.

Yeah, notice how "state" was neatly inserted into the middle there, as that means taxpayers. You can sure the "state" will pick up the lion's share.

Play by the rules and lead a clean life? "Screw you," says Cuomo. He'll just add you to the list of folks already persona non grata in the state.

It's sad how those who play by the rules and live a clean life are basically told, "f*** you" but those who committed crimes are rewarded.

An accountant friend and I had a similar conversation about bankruptcy. Beside personal humiliation, what is the down side of ruining your credit, blowing up credit cards, over extending on your mortgage and living the high life and then declaring bankruptcy? They say the American dream is dead. That's because the American work ethic is.
