For the Pete's sake, integration was implemented in the 60's and is working just fine. If they gave this much attention and effort to watching and scrutinizing Medicare maybe more seniors would get fair and better care and not be limited services. And The 94.6 million would certainly make the Medicare staff happy which in turn may keep some seniors alive.

No amount of money will ever close the achievement gap, facts are facts, most blacks don't have the ability to learn, they are NOT the same as whites, the blacks are the problem they never create they only destroy, anyone who believes otherwise needs to spend some time in Detroit.

You can pour a gazillion bucks into schools and get no better results. Kids that have a good work ethic and want to learn will learn under most any conditions. Kids that are lazy & don't care won't learn, they'll just drift along. They drag the whole system down and add needless $ to our property tax bills. You cannot MAKE a kid learn.
Until parents take some responsibility for their offspring, it'll be the same old same old.
