What’s Behind the Collapse of Baltimore

As Archbishop of Baltimore William Lori points out, the Catholic schools cost $6,000 a year and have a 99 percent graduation rate. Yet the Democrats are committed to locking poor children out of those schools if it takes a dime away from funds for failing, unionized public schools.
With school choice policies, we could save children’s lives while saving money. Instead the left wing unions and bureaucracies ruthlessly exploit children, ruining their lives while the Democratic leadership in the Maryland House blocks school choice bills that would give children a chance to attend better schools and would force schools to compete for students by actually being good schools.
There is no greater example of the relentless dishonesty of modern Democrats than their willingness to destroy children’s lives while blaming others. President Obama could quit blaming Fox News and simply demand school choice (which of course he opposes) and he would radically improve the lives of millions of trapped poor children.

I have always liked Newt’s brains. His morals cost him the Presidency.
But read this article and he factually pounds home the immoral, ineffective, and inefficient government by one party.
It’s hard to imagine the lives that have been lost, the possibilities missed, and the trees lost by the terrible Gooferment Skrules.
Further, after ending the Fed, I can’t think of a more important step to improve America than to Separate Education and the State.
We wouldn’t think of the Gooferment running food so why do we let it “ruin” Education and Health Insurance?
