Fox Host Calls Universal Preschool Immoral Crazy Talk

Last week, Fox News attacked President Obamas proposal for expanding universal early childhood education by characterizing it as a government handout intended to extend literally, the nanny state and warned that the president is using preschool to entice a whole new generation of toddlers to vote for him.
On Sunday, the networks sister station, Fox Business, continued its attacks, as host Gerri Willis called the effort immoral:
WILLIS: I have to tell you, I think its immoral to make all of these promises, when you know you cant afford it, we cant afford it. Preschool for everyone, are you kidding me? We dont have the money for that! This is just crazy talk and I think its immoral to put this across as something thats actually doable, when its not.
Universal preschool programs increase the likelihood of a child going to college and decrease drop out rates, teen pregnancies, and criminal behavior. And while President Obama has pledged that the proposals included in his State of the Union address will not contribute to the deficit, studies show that investing in children when theyre young generates up to $11 of economic benefits over a childs lifetime for every dollar spent initially on the program.
