  •  The repub idea of choice is a false promise (7+ / 0-)

    The plan is to get the voucher system in place any way they can.  Once in place they can scale back the coupon year by year until it becomes an insignificant budget item. The goal is to remove this expense from the budget.  The reason? Protect the wealthy from tax increases that help support social programs. It all starts with protecting the wealthy class.

    I absolutely understand why the 1,000,000+ crowd would vote republican, but why would regular folk?  Totally mystifies me.
