I never said the middle class was automatically better off than the working class. Going to college (and yes, that includes attending on financial aid) is something specifically designed to move one into the middle class (or better) or keep you there if already in it.

The working class people who go to college are not doing it to stay in the working class.
You added nothing to that conversation, Barbara.
