    The Republican Party is hell bent on bringing the country back to the early 20th century. Remember those better times? When people were dying of diarreah? Streets had about a foot of human excrement on them? The average literacy rate was comparable to a modern African country? And then people wonder why nobody likes Right Wing Protestant Christians. They're troglodytes with iPads trying to pull the country back into the social dark ages.

It was just cuts to administrative positions, but people didn't care to investigate. People somehow equate education cuts to "not caring about children". But that's emotional rhetoric for you. When you don't have the details, make victims instead.
    The political fallout rarely has anything to do with reality. Sad but true.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Who got all these tax breaks? If the people like what's happening, it's their business. Most states are bankrupt, so what are they supposed to do? There was probably a lot of spending on education that was unnecessary, and probably went to the the teachers. The teachers were riding a gravy train that had to end. It's always hard to take away once it's been given, but it shouldn't have been given in the first place, so somebody, a responsible governor, takes it away, and is the bad guy. I say, too bad. They'll survive. I think they're making more of it than needs be. I remember getting a raise at work that was unnecessary, and in a year our job was eliminated. Pay the teacher's too much and you have fewer teachers. It's a vicious cycle.

    Yes, tax cuts that made the state much more atrtractive to business. They went from 49 to 24 (those numbers are pretty close) in rankings of a states ability to create a business friendly enviroment.
