Guess what is bringing Republicans and Democrats together...even Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner?

President Obama and his education secretary are facing a bipartisan revolt from almost 300 lawmakers, an inspector general's investigation and several lawsuits over a proposed crackdown on for-profit colleges, which train people for jobs ranging from plumbers to computer technicians.
Now, why wouldn't Obama want people to train themselves for jobs, period...especially ones that would make them productive and independent people with skills unlike him and his ilk who occupy the exalted heights of academia (and who are currently completely wrecking the economy of this country)?
"There seems to be a big urgency here to go after for-profit colleges who educate a high number of African-American and Hispanic people in our communities," Harry Alford, the head of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, told Fox News. "And for some reason, it's full speed ahead."
