Is using taxpayer money to send children to private schools the same tactic that the Republican party plans to do with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid?

    Republicans want to send recipients of Social Security, medicare, and Medicaid to "private schools"?

    Social Security would be immeasurably better if people owned their funds. Same would be true if the people had more control of all of these.

    The people spoke, and mandated public education. In many areas, publication has failed to provide a good education, choosing instead to merely warehouse students. Private and parochial schools have often proven superior public schools. I am in favor of competition to ensure that our students get a good education. If inferior schools are driven out of the market place, public schools will also be improved, but the real winners are the products of good schools.

    Medicare and medicaid are rife with fraud, an the public sector seems to think that is fine. They speak of remedy, but fail to act on their words. Tying Rupublicans and corporations may seem like an effective rhetorical tool, but it would be more accurate to simply tie politicians to corporations. GE, Solyndra, A123 and a host of other corporations have proven the Dimocrats equally guilty crony capitalism. Crony capitalism is a proper topic for another discussion.

    Competition is an excellent device to reduced health care cost. If private institutions drive the public sector out of the market, so be it. Private enterprise seeks the least cost alternative because earnings matter. The public sector has little incentive to reduce costs because for them, their earnings are guaranteed whether they eliminate costs o...

    Among the reforms necessary to stimulate competition is to allow interstate competition of insurance carriers, so that fewer dollars are chasing drugs and services. Currently, the states prop up inefficient carriers and more dollars are bidding up drugs and service.

    Even the current administration garnered Pharma's support for the "Affordable" Health Care act, at the taxpayers expense.

    The smokescreen of partisan politics is obscuring the issue. Both sides are abusing the system and we are in the middle paying for it.

    Using tax dollars to send tax payers kids to school? How horrible!

    The only ones to be hurt are the public teachers Unions and public school employes.

    I guess they'll have to get a job in the private schools without a Union.
