Just posted my second reason on Facebook:

Reason #2 why I’m a Democrat: I went to college and graduate school, becoming the first member of my family to earn a PhD, in part due to receiving Pell Grants and low-interest Stafford loans. Under the GOP plan, 1 million students would no longer be eligible for Pell Grants, remaining grants would be reduced, and the interest rates on Stafford loans would double, making higher education even more difficult to achieve for those of us who can’t just borrow money from our parents, as Romney recently advised poor and working class students.

Let’s see if it generates as much discussion as reason #1 did!
