Obama's wrong on Headstart

We would expect our elected officials to do a little research before proposing new legislation. It's the right thing to do.

Unfortunatly that's not the case in today's politics. "Will it work" and "How much will it cost" are questions we want answered but politicians care more about feel-good legislation like expanding Headstart.

The Headstart program began in 1965. Today, the program costs $8 billion a year and all studies show it's a failure. By third grade kids who never attended Headstart are just as "smart as those that did.

So why does Obama want to expand the program and triple the cost? To pay back unions for supporting him. He wants to give more taxpayer dollars to union fat-cats. He's taking money from the poor and middle-class and giving it to the rich...Again.
