OK. I’m not a gambler. I’ve got enough vices and I don’t need to add gambling to them but in this one case I’m willing to make an exception. Bet me on what Congress and Obama will do about this situation.
Here’s the meat of the issue – Obama recently signed off on increasing the federal deficit to historic proportions with spending that boggles the mind on really important things like these:
$2.5 billion for broadband deployment through the Rural areas
1.7 million for a honey bee laboratory in Weslaco, Texas
$346,000 for research on apple fire blight in Michigan and New York
$1.5 million for work on grapes and grape products, including wine
$173,000 for research on asparagus production in Washington
$206,000 for wool research in Montana, Texas and Wyoming
$209,000 for efforts to improve blueberry production in Georgia
$1 million to control Mormon crickets in Utah (I wonder if they’re polygamous?)
But Congress isn’t being totally irresponsible. With all this spending they know something has to be cut. So what are Democrats seeking to cut because of all this spending? That’s right. Opportunity Scholarships for 1800 low-income children and minorities in Washington D.C. to escape their awful public schools.
So who’s happy with that? That’s right. The teacher’s union which vehemently opposes any child receiving help to escape failing public schools.
This is a powerful video which I believe everyone should see. These are the very real children adversely affected by the unholy alliance between the Democratic party and the Teacher’s Union. Let’s see what our representatives care about more: pleasing the big money unions or helping 1800 children receive an education. Anyone wanna’ bet? (House money is on the unions)
