    Re: Wis. Gov. signs budget cutting education $1.85B

    For my entire life, the government has been pouring more and more money into public schools to solve the problem of our failing education system, and kids are no better educated today than kids were 30 or 40 years ago. Since more money has not produced better educated kids, what makes you people think that less money is going to produce less educated kids?

    I have an idea... It's a bit unconventional and you really have to step outside the box on this one, but how about you wait a few years and see what the educational results of those cuts actually are, before assuming that our children will be less educated?

    Oh, but that wouldn't be politically prudent now would it?

    I really don't get this mentality in the Republican party that we need to "stand up to the union bullies" and yet bow down to the rich and cut their taxes some more.

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.
    I hope the teachers relocate.

    "Bow down to the rich"? With the top 10% of tax payers paying somewhere in the neighborhood of 75% or more of all taxes, while 47% of people in this country pay nothing, I don't think your talking point has any credibility at all.

    Maybe the real problem is 1) money doesn't solve every problem, and 2) it's nothing but a money laundering operation for liberal trade unions and liberal politicians. Since liberals run the education system in this country from top to bottom, they have the most to lose with these cuts.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Did your friend vote for him initially?
