Der Rodham’s Universal Preschools
In the continuing saga of outrageous campaign promises, Der Rodham, Hillary Clinton, sends over the heads of the voting bots the following trial balloon.
“As president, I will establish universal pre-kindergarten education through a federal-state partnership.”
Let’s leave aside, for the moment, the fact that the federal government, nor the state government for that matter, should have no role in education, let alone a supposed “universal” pre-kindergarten education, and see where the funds for this little experiment in youthful socialism will come from.
Mrs. Clinton said she’d pay for the hefty price tag by getting rid of tax loopholes and some Bush administration programs, according to the Associated Press. She said ending the Iraq war would free up some money as well, the AP reported.
Blah, blah “tax loopholes,” “Bush adminstration programs,” and, did the end the war now crowd catch the nonchalant “She said ending the Iraq war would free up some money as well,” bit, which will surely garner Der Rodham some votes.
This universal preschool trial balloon is no different from Der Rodham’s “universal health care” proposal of the past, and it deserves the same fate.
