Democrats vote to keep poor kids out of good schools

I guess the more accurate headline would be "Democrats vote to preserve teacher union monopoly". For the second time this week, a party line vote denied funding for the DC Opportunity Scholarship fund.

There are some issues where I am closer to the Democrat platform than the Republican. But on issues like this, the Democrats' shameless bowing to the unions turns my stomach. I doubt that I can ever vote for a Democrat without breaking out in hives.

That is the least you deserve for voting.

Seriously though, the ability for unions to manipulate the power structures of government is out of hand. Unfortunately it is not just the unions though, it is also the corporations and others on a list that is to long to run down in the space provided. If you follow this line of thought to its natural conclusion you can see why my cynicism led me away from party politics and into the warm embrace of anarchy.

Did you see the reason.tv video about the Cleveland schools? Good stuff.
