    Read it all here:

    If Democrats Cared About ‘the Children,’ They Would Reinstate the DC Voucher Program - Big Government

    That is, if your Democrat handlers allow you to read any thing but Whitehouse press releases. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    How do Democrats get away lecturing tax payers about thier "patriotic duty" (as Joe Biden put it) to pay higher and higher taxes to "help the poor" while they cut and raid every program that helps the poor.

    They have told us for GENERATIONS these programs are necessary for the poor and all on the backs of working Americans.

    Now you can argue about whether food stamps is necessary, but EDUCATION to help the poor, that's another matter. Nothing helps the poor more than getting a good education to find good jobs and lift themselves out.

    Why is it liberals are so against the poor getting anything but mediocre (at best) educations, that guarantee's they will probably need handouts the rest of their lives just to get by?

    Voucher programs seriously hurt the poor.
    Private schools and public schools that are good have little or no openings. And the small openings they do have with private schools are too expensive for a middle income parent to afford. How does a $5K voucher help a middle income, much less a poor, family send a kid to a private school that costs 12K a year to attend? How does a public school voucher for full price help a middle income kid get to a good school of their "choice" if that school is 40 miles away?

    You know the majority of that $26 billion passed last week is going to state Medicaid programs right?

    voucher programs are intended to suck the money out of public schools, starve them til you can drown them in the bathtub, so to speak. the plan is then to fund parochial school education and destroy secular thought and really make sure we can't compete in the world. :thup:

    it has NOTHING to do with giving the poor anything. but keep on lying.

    For the Dimocrats the plan is quite simple. The dumber they are the easier they are to control and exploit for their votes. Been working like a charm and the prospects for an even easier future look good.

    The $12 billion they are pulling from food stamps is going to the jobs program for teachers, as is the rest of the $26 billion they are spending. How exactly does that count as Medicaid?

    And we all know that public schools help everyone.

    The funny thing about all of this is that Obama promised he would try anything to see if it worked, yet the first thing he did when he got in office was move to cut funding for the single most popular, and effective, voucher program in the country. He has since worked steadily to cut all funding for voucher programs despite the success rate they have demonstrated. He does all of this because, like you, he believes these programs suck funding from public schools, which don't work no matter how much money we spend on them.

    $16.1 billion of that money is going to state Medicaid programs. The bulk of that bill was Medicaid funding, with the remainder going to state education budgets.

    I remember when private school parents wanted to have the public school buses pick up their kids and take them to the private schools. They showed up at the school board meetings with their "They pass right by our houses too" signs. Next they want use of the athletic fields,biology labs,libraries and so on at the publicschools.
    All vouchers have ever been is an attermpt to force government to pay the tuition of private school kids.
