In Flyover Country: Democrats stroke education's front, steal from taxpayers' behinds

Excerpted from this post at In Flyover Country

This article in the Gazette today shows the true intentions of
Democrats when it comes to their "priorities" in spending. They
announced that in 2011, they will approve a 2% allowable growth for
our schools. They went on to say that this shows their commitment to
education. Despite all the doom and gloom, the draconian cuts, the
gnashing of teeth - by God, they got our schools funded. See! We
love the kids! What we can't understand is, why in the hell do they
set this funding so far in advance? Two years? How does that even
make any sense? We saw the problem this year, where they had a 4%
increase for education funding, but that's had to be scaled back
because nobody foresaw the plunging economy.
