    Something stinks with those examples given. Laid off 3 times due to budget cuts? Why are you always the expendable one? Who goes to the doctor for a headache? And I thought teachers got healthcare?

    Are you saying that taking money away will solve the problem?

    Yes, I'm saying things would get better if we didn't try to centralize and subsidize our nation's education

    Like I thought, this story was BS. One crying poverty is making 55k a year. Maybe lay off the booze and go with a cheaper habit like marijuana.

    yeah, let's talk about crackpots:


    John Harwood
    ‏Verified account @JohnJHarwood

    last fall: Treasury Secretary Mnuchin says “Not only will this tax plan pay for itself but it will pay down debt,” boosting revenue/cutting deficits through growth, reduced corporate tax avoidance

    this fall: Treasury reports 2018 deficit up 17%, corporate tax payments down 31%


    except one difference. The House of Representatives populated with the like of Nunes,Gohmert etc is a designed by constitution institution where "crackpots" have a voice
    Treasury Secretary ---- not so much

    Yet again RW misses the boat
