  •  His wife was not (none)
    a Bush fan and hates NCLB... but my brother thinks all education should be privatized or left 100% to the states, anyhow. He also points to the fact that federal edu spending is way up under Bush. I tried to explain that the amount of fed spending up on edu isn't enough to cover the added costs of the "accountability" red tape required by the act. His answer is that the edu problems are at the state level, where the systems are bloated or that states have cut edu funding because they thought the NCLB money would cover costs when it was only supposed to be supplemental.

    All of his points are valid.

    I don't know what he thinks about the EPA lies, but I can guess he would say, "So the EPA screwed up, you can't hold that against Bush."

    Nor do I know what his position is on tort "reform". Like I said... I gave up last Summer when he stopped responding to my emails.

    •  The EPA didn't 'screw up' (none)
      Their draft report warned about the dangerous asbestos levels.  That warning was taken out of the report.  The government knew, and the information was deliberately withheld from the public.  Got Bush's fingerprints all over it.

      Not to harangue you.  I'm sure you're exhausted from the fight.  I appreciate the effort you're making, and wish you success.
