"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance." William Faulkner
Politicians are just like wallstreet CEOs these days. If the company/state can avoid failing under their watch, even if a decision increases the odds it will fail down the road, they will go with that decision to escape blame or at least not be fired before moving onto better opportunities. It's extremely self centered, but the problem lies as much in the ignorance of those meant to hold them accountable.

But my state cut $1 billion from K-12 last year, pushing the student teacher ratio to 50:1! If this continues, we may have to invite illegals who don't speak english to take over
Or lower the drop out age to 7
it isnt the teachers
it is their unions, and the bull**** the unions keep trying
take a look at any school district now.....compare the amount of salaries paid to teachers versus other positions in the schools
how many admins does a school need? there is waste in so many areas......money that could go to teachers if the freaking unions would get out of the way
good teachers should be paid good wages.....but the tenure issue, and the no testing issues are just some of the problems
and the unions are at the root of those issues

The fact of the matter is that after the Bush era tax cuts fully came into effect after 2003 and following the loss in tax revenue resulting from the Clinton tech bubble burst and 9/11, tax revenue, IN REAL DOLLARS, increased by 44% through Bush's last year in office in 2008. Your big lie, as outlined with the $3 trillion in lost tax revenue, is not an actual reduction in revenue to the government as outlined above, but $3 trillion left in the pockets of honest, hard working Americans and that just frosts the ass of any liberal who believes in their heart they can spend your money better than you can.
