Grijalva: Half a loaf is better than no loaf

Peoples Weekly World:

Grijalva’s cramped office seemed to be a magnet. About twenty students, teachers, and administrators from the 10 campuses of Maricopa Community College met with Grijalva in the hallway because there wasn’t enough room in his office. They urged more Pell Grants so youth can afford college. The delegation had been attending the National Legislative Summit of Community Colleges which brought 1,000 students, faculty, and administration from across the nation to fight for full funding of Pell Grants and other federal programs that assist college students.

Grijalva expressed full support but warned that compromise was unavoidable to win Republican support of Obama’s package. “Half a loaf is better than no loaf,” he said.
